Nancy’s Review of Click: An Online Love Story by Lisa Becker
*This review is part of Lisa Becker's blog tour hosted by CLP Blog Tours.
Renee Greene is about to turn thirty years old and she’s looking for love. She decides to try online dating in search of her Mr. Right. Renee is reluctant at first but eventually meets most of the men who message her on the dating site she joins. Some of the guys give her hope for a lasting relationship while others are creepy, boring, arrogant and/or rude. She shares all of the details with her three best friends Shelley, Mark, and Ashley, seeking their advice and encouragement along the way. Click is told entirely in emails between Renee and her friends and the guys she dates.
The story is truly unique in format. The emails allow readers to get to know the plot and the characters very well without being directly immersed into the action. At times, it would have been nice to experience what the characters were experiencing along with them rather than reading about what happened in their short summaries. That is the only minor drawback to a novel that is exclusively in emails. However, the emails in this novel are engaging and humorous. Renee’s foray into the world of online dating provides for many laugh-out-loud moments as she gives the recaps of her dates to her friends. Click: An Online Love Story is a quick, fun read with a modern approach to finding love.
Lisa Becker has endured her share of hilarious and awful dates with men she met through online dating, many of which inspired Click: An Online Love Story. She is now happily married to a wonderful man she met online and lives in Manhattan Beach with him and their two daughters.
