Click : An Online Love Story is a book that when I started had me convinced I wouldn’t like due to it being written solely in email format. These emails back and forth between a small group of friends tell the story which at first was very hard to follow. There is no introduction it just starts off with the emails. I had no idea who was who so not easy to follow. I then stopped reading the email to and from field and found this helped immensely. This allowed the story to progress and in a short time it was obvious who the sender and recipient of the emails were.
The story then blazed by in fact when I had about 20 pages left I looked up to check the time and then noticed not much of the book left. My reaction was what already? Once I got into this book it was a quick read.
Click is chick lit, not my usual read but being big on variety I said okay to the review. Glad I did as while it will never be a reread it was fun and nice, variety is the spice of life you know. Soft and sweet too which is quite the change from the demon haunting horror book that was my previous read.
Click is a book that I can relate to as I recently posted about my own experiences in the magical world of online dating. The first one this odd fellow, the second post including the message I got from Mr. Submissive and most recently Mr. Clubbing.
Meeting people trust me is super hard, I’m actually on a man break right now just enjoying my own company. Lisa Becker is one of the lucky ones though she actually met someone online, it obviously went well if she married him, had a couple of kids with him and then wrote a story along those lines as well.
Renee is the character who is online dating, her friends Shelley, Ashley and Mark give her love, support and guidance. Renee meets some very interesting guys along the journey and search for love. My favorite character however was Shelley her Samantha like friend. Who would give guys hilarious names based on what they were like in bed.
As great as books are often that there are characters who are nothing like you or going through an experience like nothing you ever would. Click however is a book where you can relate to the characters and to the story.
I recommend this book for those who enjoy chick-lit, who want a sweet light read.
Lisa has kindly agreed to an interview so more Lisa Becker to come.
Click: An Online Love Story – 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.
