Book Review: Click: An Online Love Story

by Lisa Becker

Genre: Chick Lit, Contemporary, Friendship, Romance
Publication:  March 29th 2011
Format: Kindle Edition, 347 pages
Fast approaching her 30th birthday and finding herself not married, not dating, and without even a prospect or a house full of cats, Renee Greene, the heroine of Click: An Online Love Story, reluctantly joins her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles. The story unfolds through a series of emails between Renee and her best friends (anal-compulsive Mark, the overly-judgmental Ashley and the over-sexed Shelley) as well as the gentlemen suitors she meets online. From the guy who starts every story with "My buddies and I were out drinking one night," to the egotistical "B" celebrity looking for someone to stroke his ego, Renee endures her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates. Fraught with BCC's, FWD's and inadvertent Reply to All's, readers will root for Renee to "click" with the right man.

I received a copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review.

Click: An Online Love Story was written in e-mail format all throughout the book. Renee Greene, the heroine was talked by her best friend, Mark to join an online dating site. This was where the fun started. We get to watch how Renee interactions with the guys she met online and how her best friend, Shelley, Ashley and Mark would react to it as Renee bcc and fwd some of her email to them. I didn’t like how the story was written at first. It can get a bit confusing with how the story was written (in email form). There were a few times when I have to rewind back because I keep forgetting who the email is for or who is it from (and the bcc and fwd). But after a while, I got used to the format.

Click: An Online Love Story was an easy read that you can probably finish in one day. I love to watch (or read) Renee’s adventure in looking for love. She sounded fun. I love reading her emails (and Shelley’s). And I enjoyed reading emails Renee got from the guys she met in the online dating site. It was mostly hilarious! I got excited to know who Renee will end up with.

Overall, Click: An Online Love Story was a quick, light read. But in my opinion, the book was lack of emotion and human interactions.

The Sequel to Click, Double Click is expected somewhere this spring
