Review of:- Click: An Online Love Story by Lisa Becker

View cover photo.jpg in slide show Description by the author:-  Click: An Online Love Story - 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:-

A very modern version of a love story, in this day and age when more and more people are finding love on-line it is also very relevant. As a romantic myself I'm a sucker for a good love story. I found myself laughing along to the women's conversations via e-mail and thinking to myself its the sort of conversations i have on occasions. 
I did however find the dates and times hard to follow as i tended not to read that part, i generally skip the chapter headings too and then wonder what is going on. As a result of that i found myself getting irritated.
Concerning the general story i found it very easy to get swept up with it and found myself still reading at 1 am on a couple of occasions- not something i intended. I found the story flowed very well and the writing style was easy to follow. I wasn't keen on the swearing, but accept that it is part of the modern day language. I liked the fact that the author also included things from a male perspective and had the main male friend also signing up to an on-line dating agency.

Overall a lighthearted read, very good for a holiday, or escape from day to day life.

My rating a 4/5
