Review: Click: An Online Love Story by Lisa Becker

Reviewer: Amber
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Fairies

Meet Renee and her BFF's: Mark the anal compulsive type who over analyzes everything and anything and takes for forever to choose a profile picture. Shelley the fun and as Lisa put it the "Oversexed" type loves men. Shelley seemed to always have a different guy of the night or day or sometimes both night and day and never called them by name. She always gave then nicknames to describe their time together. Every name she gave them made me smile and usually laugh out loud. Shelley’s email usually included the most detail of her and her man’s encounter, some of which made me envious and some made me go ewww. Ashley is Renee's oldest friend and she's slightly stupid and judgemental.

As Renee's 20th Birthday approaches, she is still without a man. Follow along on this journey, as Renee's best friend, Mark, convinces her to join an online dating site. This whole story is based on emails between all of these best friends. The story has great flow, great characters and is sure to pull you right in. I felt like this was the story that just kept on giving. Not only did I love all of the characters, but reading about some of the dates she went on and some of the people she met was just hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud way more than I ever thought I would. I love the connection she makes with some of the guys and how she tells others off, brilliant! I must say since I’m in love with the other characters as well, that I would love reading a story with each of them as the main character. 
Goodreads Synopsis
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.
