Double Click by Lisa Becker

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.

I had a blast reading Click: An Online Love Story so I was thrilled for a return visit with the characters to see what they've been up to.  Double Click picks up about six months after Click leaves off.  

Renee is still hopelessly in love with Ethan, Ashley's pregnant and Mark has a girlfriend, Cassie, who is a new character to the series.  Mark's friends don't really like Cassie, but it looks like she is here for the long haul.  Shelley isn't her normal self - something is going on and it will be revealed as the story unfolds.  

The whole story is told through emails, which is really easy to read once you get used to the style.  Holly's Inbox was the first book I read in that format and I loved it.  You can really see the whole picture from multiple points of view - if you can get over Cassidy's forwarding of annoying cat videos.  

All in all, it was a quick, entertaining read.  The characters are modern and relatable - heck I'm sure I have a few Shelley's and Renee's in my own gaggle of friends.  If you're looking for a great book to read this summer on the beach, pick up Click and Double Click! Great fun and highly recommend!

  1. Thanks for the fantastic review Wendy. So glad you enjoyed the Click saga. I don't have plans yet on a third in the series. But upon seeing the Double Click cover, a friend said, “Can't wait for part three, "Right Click"; the story of how Renee becomes a conservative and falls madly in love with a one percenter!" So you never know. ;)


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
