Series: Click, An Online Love Story Sequel
Publication Date: March 27, 2013
I read Click: An Online Love Story quite some time ago and was very pleased with the format and hilarity that ensued. When Ms. Becker asked me to review Double Click, I was so excited and couldn't wait to catch back up with the girls (and Mark...and Ethan). :)
All of the main crew is back emailing one another again and the format is just as engaging, unfortunately, the storyline isn't quite as compelling as the first in the series.
I enjoyed the happiness of Renee and Ethan. They are working through beginning relationship issues but still so happy together. Ashley is a new mom now and although she was my least favorite character in Click, she definitely grows on me this time around. Shelley is hilariously atrocious as always but is taking a slightly different path than the usual. Mark is in a new relationship and he is so hopeful that his closest lady friends will love and adore Cassidy as much as he does...unfortunately, when new blood is added to the mix, the cats come out to play - and play they did!
I did indeed enjoy getting a run-down on all of the crew, but I felt like this go around was more drawn out than the last. Almost as if there wasn't enough to say at times so the emails were being filled with a bit of fluff. That being said, there were many laugh-out-loud moments mixed with serious and real life issues that I appreciated. Overall, Double Click was a fun and lighthearted novel - and I was happy to read it.
If you enjoy cheerful, tongue-in-cheek novels that give you a good belly laugh, Double Click is the perfect read for you.
