Today I am reviewing Click by Lisa Becker.
Blurb: 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 Review: This is a series of e-mails between four long time friends as two of them decide to embark into the world of online dating. Only one Renee really gets into the scene. The exchange between the four is at times funny. One of Renee’s friends is kind of a prude one is outgoing to the extreme with her constant one night stands and the male of the group is a fussy OCD type. That is about it as far a character development goes. While it was mildly entertaining it was not a book I really enjoyed much and not one I would likely ever go to again or recommend to my friends as book to read. The writing was OK and the editing was OK just not really my cup of tea. It gets a 3 star.
