Book Notes & Giveaway: Click-An Online Love Story by Lisa Becker

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.
Okay, I loved this book pretty hardcore. From the moment I received it, I was excited to read it. It's kind of hard to explain why I hearted it so much without giving bits of the story away, but I'll try to be like a ninja and keep it out of this. My love for this story is mainly because of the characterization. Sure, I loved some characters more than others, but I don't think there was a character in the book that felt undeveloped to me. I felt like I knew every one of them. Actually, that's just it, I DO know someone in my life that could fit well for each character. I think that's what's so great about the book. After reading about all the vampires, magicians, Keebler elves, and zombies(Okay, maybe not the Keebler elves), it's nice to go somewhere familiar. Though I related to Renee the most, Shelley was definitely my favorite character. I don't know how many times her made-up names and overall personality made me laugh. Seriously, you'll get a little taste of what I'm talking about later in the post and will then completely understand the amazingness that is Shelley.

Reviewing this book alone, I was disappointed about a few story lines being left somewhat open-ended, but now I know there's a sequel so I'll forgive Lisa for making me feel sad. All in all, this was a really fun read you should all buy RIGHT NOW!
