Review: Click An Online Love Story by Lisa Becker

My Goodreads Review:

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.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

So I’ve been wanting to read this book since it came out. And about two months ago, the author asked if I was interested in reviewing the series because the newest book was coming out: Right click

Anyways, it took me longer than expected to read the series due to now calculating finals in with the date (bad on my part).
This was the second book I read that used email format. The first book was called How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford if I’m not mistaken. And I don’t remember if it was good or not because I read it in middle school. I feel like Click was just an average book. That is my reason for rating it a 3.5. Lisa Becker did a great job at portraying emotion through emails but I still couldn’t help but feel like I wasn’t being told enough about the characters. The plot was great but ironically, the email format was the downfall of this book, and this is very ironic because I would think that it would make it to where the book is more than ordinary.

Now I’m not saying that I didn’t like the book. I like it enough to want to read the second and third one. Lisa did end up twisting the email format to her advantage by making online dating the main theme. I would say that overall, It’s really funny and has a very interesting turn. It’s a great book for a hot lazy summer day.
