Overview

These days, finding love online is as commonplace as ordering that coveted sweater. But back in 2003, the whole concept of internet dating was still quite new, with a stigma attached to it that meant those who were willing to test the waters faced a fair amount of skepticism from friends and family.

Such is the case for Chloe Thompson, a restless 20-something tired of the typical dating scene and curious about what she might find inside her parents' computer. With two serious but failed relationships behind her, Chloe isn't even entirely sure what she's looking for. She just knows that whatever it is, she wants to find it.

Based loosely on author K. J. Farnham's real-life online dating experiences, Chloe's foray into online dating involves a head-first dive into a world of matches, ice breakers and the occasional offer of dick pics, all while Chloe strives to shake herself of the ex who just refuses to disappear. Will she simultaneously find herself and "the one" online, or will the ever-growing pile of humorous and downright disastrous dates only prove her friends and family right? There's only one way to find out...

Click. Date. Repeat.

Four stars for an amusing look into the world of online dating. Chloe signs up to find someone special. While she meets the prospects she gets too much advice from two good friends, her married sister and her mother and much of it is contrdictory. The question becomes clear. What does Chloe really want? Well edited and well written. I'm looking into the next book, Click, Date, Repeat Again.

Click Date Repeat is basically the story of Chloe and her online dating experiences. I found this book to be both funny as well as sad, but I don't want to get into that as it might ruin it for you. If you're looking for an "easy" read with some humor as well as an actual story, don't hesitate to pick this one up. I loved it. KJ does a great job of developing her characters and her writing is incredibly smooth.

The cover & the title of this book immediately made me agree to read it. I was expecting something like a journal listing all the dates but the story is so much deeper than that. Chloe mid-twenties, mad cat lady (3 cats) decides she needs a boyfriend & embarks on a journey into the world of online dating. She begins with quite a long list of requirements or definite dislikes but soon realises that surprise, surprise not all the men are telling the truth about themselves. With the help of her girlfriends, brother, sister, interfering mother etc she has many opinions on what she should be looking for but all Chloe wants is ‘the one’ is that too much to ask! This is written in such a fabulous way, it’s easy to read, keeps you hooked, willing her to find somebody/anybody who will make her happy .. the descriptions of the characters are spot on & I could build up a picture of what they were all like. It covers so many scenarios, some funny some sad & some just downright “OH Chloe” moments. It is set in 2003 when fewer people met online but it is so relevant to today .. I absolutely loved it & felt as though I had been on the rollercoaster with her. Thanks to the author & Lola’s Blog Tours for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.

A light hearted funny read about Chloe’s online dating experiences. While most of the book is light-hearted we can see that Chloe learns a lot about herself in the course of this book as well. I could really relate to Chloe and her adventures in dating. It was a nice refreshing read chock full of all the wonderful and terrible things that happen while we are dating.

This book is a fun, light read that makes me glad I’m not single. Dating is tough. On-line dating in 2003 was a disaster waiting to happen. I was so scared for Chloe and was waiting for something really bad to happen. I felt Drew had it in him to turn super-psycho. Luckily he did not. I guess Chloe did have to kiss a lot of frogs to get to the good one. Her friends made me angry with their judging comments when they were acting way worse but they also made me laugh at their crazy ideas. The book was slow to begin but it kept me hanging on to see if she really would find happiness.

Chloe is your average 25-year old. She hangs out with her friends, she goes to bars, she spends holidays with her families. On the urging of a friend she tries out online dating and almost every possible combination of hilarious encounters with questionable profiles ensues. Click Date Repeat is one of those delightfully fun novels that is so relatable in today’s dating world. The story may be set in 2003, at the early stages of online dating, but almost every single detail and horrifying dating story is still applicable today. This book is everything you wanted and didn’t want to know about online dating. Farnham shows both the darker side of online dating as well as the hilarity of the situations that can and do arise from meeting potential partners online. Chloe is a relatable character that any dating twenty-something will root for. She makes mistakes and poor decisions, but she maintains an unquenchable positivity in her experiences. “After a first-date kiss, guilt usually causes me to feel the need to continue seeing someone, regardless of any red flags. I get in too deep, too fast, often because of that physical intimacy.” (Page 59). Chloe is a loveable character, hopeful and able to see the good in people, giving them the benefit of the doubt to a fault because not everyone she meets is as well-intentioned as she is. But she is not without her own personality quirks and emotional baggage, which is the very reason you want her to succeed. She is like any person in the dating scene, vulnerable to the clutches of those who might have ulterior motives or those who lie about who they are to get what they want. Not only did I relate to the main character, but also to the experiences she had with her first (second and third) dates. Who hasn’t had a bad first date at Applebee’s? Who hasn’t tried to assess the intelligence of a potential partner with the game of Scrabble, only to find the person didn’t  how to do simple arithmetic to add up the tiles? This book is like the quintessential online dating experience all wrapped up in a nice little package so that you can read about Chloe’s mistakes and potentially avoid making them yourself. The author also packages the novel with a great writing style, some well-worded phrases and well-laid out descriptions of all the characters. I was not at all confused between the myriad of dating prospects and Chloe’s friends because Farnham is able to give me short to-the-point unique descriptors. My favorite was: “Drew’s smile is contagious. He’s an eye-smiler: The type of person who isn’t capable of faking a smile. He also oozes emotion through his facial expressions.” (Page 54). I absolutely love the author’s title, and her cover is spot on. The very first page contains the stats of the main character, an interesting choice, but perfectly placed considering the material of the book itself. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a light read, a chick lit novel, or reliving the ins and outs of dating.

Great story! I received a copy of this book from the author for the purpose of providing an honest review. 4 Stars! This book ended up being a solid 4 star read for me. I have to admit that when I first sat down to read this book I had a moment where I wondered what I had done by requesting this book. I read another book earlier this year about something very similar and it really wasn't the right story for me. Just a few pages into this book and I was hooked. This story connected with me in a way that the other book hadn't and I found that I could relate to just about everything inside of these pages. This story is set during the early days of online dating. I believe I am a little bit older than the author and I remember the even earlier days of meeting people online. I never signed up for an online dating service as the main character in this book did but I did meet a few people online. I think I met every single one of the men that are found in this story. It is mind boggling how authentic this book actually is. One of the things that I really loved about this book was how it reminded me so much of some of the best (and worst) days of my life. I never at any point in the book thought that something was far fetched or out of place. The characters in this book are just wonderful. I realize that most of the characters were most likely based on real people and it shows because these people are real. They are not perfect and they have their flaws but they keep trying. Let's just say that K.J. Farnham absolutely nailed it with these characters. The writing style of this book was wonderful. I felt Chloe's frustration as she navigated the dating world right along with her and I cheered for her when things went well. All of the men, all of the dates, and all of Chloe's friends blended perfectly into a wonderful little story. I would highly recommend this book to other readers. This is a captivating story that I consumed in just two days. This is the first book by K.J. Farnham that I have had a chance to read but I plan to watch for other books in the future.

So much more than the light, funny read I was expecting. This one was also somewhat though-provoking and written in a very sincere manner. While it's definitely more geared toward twenty-somethings, anyone who's ever been through the ups and downs of dating can probably relate.

The story was OK but I really didn't like Chloe. She was shallow and always drinking. ALWAYS hooking up at a bar and getting drunk isn't a likable person. Then when she gets so drunk that she passes out and basically gets raped when the guy doesn't hear her no, but she's embarrassed, is wrong. I would have dumped it without finishing but I wanted to know if she finally wised up. This is NOT a recommended book, unless you like drunk loose women!
