Book ~ "Double Click" (2013) Lisa Becker

From Goodreads ~ Fans of the romantic hit Click: An Online Love Story will enjoy another voyeuristic dive into the lives of Renee, Shelley, Ashley, Mark and Ethan, as Double Click picks up with their lives six months later. 

Are Renee and Ethan soul mates? Does Mark ever go on a date? Has Shelley run out of sexual conquests in Los Angeles? Will Ashley's judgmental nature sabotage her budding relationship? 

Through a marriage proposal, wedding, new baby and unexpected love twist, Double Click answers these questions and more. Readers will continue to cheer, laugh, cry and cringe following the email exploits of Renee and friends.

Click chronicled Renee and her friend, Mark's quest to find "the one" on online dating sites.  When it ended, Renee and Ethan had just met and started dating ... six months later, when this book starts, they are still together, happily in love.

There's something going on with Shelley, though ... she is toned down a lot and isn't her usual frisky self.  Ashley has gotten pregnant and quickly gets married.  Mark meets Cassidy and she is included in their inner circle despite being a flake.

Like Click, this book is made up entirely of emails between Renee, Ethan, Shelley, Mark, Ashley, Shelley and occasionally Cassidy ("ha-lariously" most of her input is forwarding cat videos and pictures which drives Shelley crazy).  It does take a bit to get used to this style but it was an easy read once I got into the rhythm.

Click was fun with the escapades of Renee on her dates with the characters she had met online.  Though funny and cute, I found this one was more mature since everyone has settled down somewhat.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

I received a copy of this ebook from the author at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
