Summary: 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.
Review: I received a copy of this novel from the author, Lisa Becker, in exchange for my honest opinion, and this was an enjoyable read. The main character, Renee Greene, is close to celebrating her 30th birthday, but aside from her best friends, Renee has no one to celebrate it with. When Renee agrees to try online dating with one of her best friends, Mark, she goes through her fair share of terrible dates. As a lot of people stated, Renee and her three friends remind you of the ladies from Sex and the City, except one of Renee's friends is a guy. This book was a little difficult to read since it's written in emails, but it was a good read!
