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.


The idea of Click really appealed to me - probably because I’m single and turning thirty later this year. *gulp* Completely different from anything I’ve ever read, Click was told solely through emails between Renee and her friends, as well as men from Choose Jews, the dating site one of her best friends convinced her to join.

Renee had a great variety of friends, from the anal to the slutty to the prudish. Through their emails I felt like I got to know each one of them, and by the end I felt like they were my friends. With the story being told through emails, I was surprised at just how well I felt like I knew them. My favourite was Shelley - crude, sassy, tell-it-like-it-is, and hilarious, she was an amazing friend to Renee, always trying to boost her confidence and encourage her. She and Renee seemed like unlikely friends, but she was the exact type of friend Renee needed in her life.

Click had this fascinating voyeuristic quality to it, getting to see inside someone’s life through their personal - often very personal - emails. Being the curious person I am, I thought it was a lot of fun getting to read these emails without the consequences you’d experience in real life. The type of guys on the site ran the gamut from crazy to amazing.  Renee had a lot of hits and misses (mostly misses) with the dating site, and it was hilarious to read about.

A touching and laugh-out-loud funny story about friendship, life, and love, Click is a must read for fans of women’s fiction and romance.

  2. This one sounds interesting but I'm not a fan of email books. They kinda irritate me--maybe it's because all the ones I've read were really dumb, I don't know. Lol. :P But I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D
