The second in a series and I was hoping to like this one more than the second and I did, but still didn't completely love it. This series is told in the form of emails and I have read quite a few books in this format, but the first one just didn't completely do it for me. I felt as though there I was missing something, so I was hoping that book two would feel better since I was already one book in knowing the characters. I enjoyed this one more but for a different reason than I expected - the emails were longer! The emails felt like they had more substance and I liked the few times where they said sorry missed your call and had to use email. I felt as though it felt like a more fuller story. I still would have enjoyed a little bit of the book told in a traditional narrative, but this book felt more full.

And then we come to the end of the series. So not only there is a lot of waterworks (from the characters and also from me) but the plot is just as amazing as the other two, if not more than that. Lisa Becker has a talent which is unparalleled by all my reading experience so far. Her chick lit are something to be not only read and shared with every lady in the world, but also to be treasured for the lifetime as you never know when you will require a pick-me-up and want to read the series all over again. Everyone who is a fan of Sex and the City will adore this book. Try it at your own risk, once you enter this, then there is no turning back.

Okay, so the author didn't keep us in suspense long, THANK GOODNESS, and let everyone fall off the face of the e-Earth. Nope. If you just finished book 1, this second installment picks up a few months later. Now, I will admit, at the start, I thought oh my goodness! What have I missed...as they discuss wedding plans, an upcoming birth, and a few other juicy tidbits but within a few epages, we're back up to speed and realizing that we were merely being taunted. (You got us Ms. Becker...good one!) Overall, the emails got a bit wordy at times in this installment, but it did satisfy. It successfully navigated what a lot of trilogies get caught up in...the sophomore slump. Book 2 can make or break a three pack and here, while I wouldn't say they were flying colors, it certainly was sparkly nonetheless. We got to know the characters a bit more, watched them grow, and are primed and ready for book 3. **review copy received in exchange for my honest review...full review can be seen on my site*

“Double Click” by Lisa Becker 2 out of 5 stars Renee and company are back in the second book in the Click series by Lisa Becker.  She’s a little more settled and instead of traversing the dating world, she is now reveling in her relationship status.  As I said in my review of the first book, this is a completely different concept than anything you’ve ever read.  There is no dialogue…there is no physical character interaction.  There is only a series of emails exchanged by a group of friends as they traverse life, love, and all the pitfalls of both. I’m still struggling to get into this series.  I so wanted to make a connection with this group, especially Renee.  On paper she is a great character…one that you could potentially invest in.  However, that’s where it stops for me…on paper.  I need to be in her head.  I need to see Ethan through her eyes, in the moment.  I need to feel what it’s like to kiss him and touch him as she is doing it.  I need to be in her head.  I needed to experience her life as she did, not in a retelling afterward to her friends.  For me, I need that connection with the characters in order to really delve into a book.  Once again, I’m at a loss for what to say because I don’t really know who these people are…what truly motivates them…how they really felt in any given moment because I never experienced any of it with them. If you are looking for a shallow, on-the-surface read then this may be for you.  I think this would play out well as a weekly news article or something in that vain.  As a book, it just didn’t come together for me. *I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Shannon, My Secret Book Spot

3.5 stars Double Click carries on the adventures of this entertaining group of friends. All of their lives are changing. There are marriages, babies and secret love affairs. Once again, I really enjoyed getting this peek inside this groups lives.  What worked for me: Renee didn't get on my nerves as much in this book as she did the first book. I still love Shelley, but I missed her a bit in this book. She's in it, but her vibe is a bit different.  What didn't work for me: I still feel like the intimacy is missing. So, in a way...this is a contemporary romance, but it has more of a chick lit feel to it. Which, I like chick lit, but I found myself wanting to see their lives more in the moment.  Overall, I enjoyed it. I'm curious to see how the story ultimately plays out. I'm a bit nervous about Ethan and Renee for some reason and I hope my fears aren't warranted. I'd still like to see Shelley with Mark too, but I'm not sure it will happen. We shall see!

Like her first novel, I received a copy of Double Click from Lisa Becker in exchange for my honest opinion, and like Click, it was an enjoyable read. Double Click is a continuation of the first novel, Click. It picks up six months after the first month, and we get to see how things are going between Renee and Ethan. We also get to catch up with her friends, Mark, Shelley, and Ashley. Since this isn't a stand alone novel, I don't want to give anything away that may spoil this novel and Click for the readers. One thing I enjoyed about this novel is the realism; the friendships are genuine, their problems are real, and they're hilarious. It was still a little difficult for me to get used to the entire email format, but after a while I got used to it. Overall, this is a novel that you do not want to miss!

Double Click picks up shortly after where Click left off. A lot has changed in the last few months - we have a few additions to the gang, and a few surprises in store. Life is changing for Renee. Things are getting serious with Ethan (I didn't say this in my review of Click because I wanted to avoid spoilers, but I LOVE ETHAN. I'm so glad Renee ended up with him), Ashley and Mark are both involved with people, and Shelley seems to be keeping things from Renee. They’re all as close as they ever were, but you can see the dynamics changing within the group. I loved that we got to see the romance that started in the first book carrying on through the second. Ethan was my choice from his very first email to Renee, and I think they’re so great together. However, I loved that it wasn’t all sunshine and roses for them. Their relationship was realistic - Ethan wasn’t perfect, and neither was their relationship. They had issues, and it was nice to see a romance that wasn’t ‘romanticized’ (and this is coming from a romance junkie); I thought it was a nice change from the norm. I was really sad for Double Click to end. I got really attached to these characters, and I enjoyed seeing into their lives through their emails. The ending was bittersweet - I actually cried - but it was realistic, which I liked. Even though they’re a group of adults, it felt like really getting to watch these people grow up in a lot of ways, and that was fun, funny, enlightening, and emotional. I enjoyed Click and Double Click immensely (so much so that I gave copies to my mum as a gift, and she loved them too!), and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, especially to fans of women’s fiction and romance.

“Double Click” is a fun novel. It’s light, airy and clever. The kind of conversation you would have with your friends via e-mail. The characters are late-20something/early 30something friends, Ashley, Renee, Shelley, Ethan, Mark and Mark’s new girlfriend, Cassidy. Ashley is the engaged and pregnant friend, Renee and Ethan are the couple who live together and seldom see each other, Shelley is the vamp of the group and Mark is Renee’s best male friend who has always been there for her. When Cassidy, a pretty and perky personal trainer to the stars comes into the group, there’s natural skepticism. Becker’s characters are so relatable that it’s impossible not to get involved in their lives from the start. The inclusion of Mark’s new girlfriend, Cassidy, in the e-mail train was sheer brilliance. We all have that friend who has had a girlfriend or boyfriend who just doesn’t reflect well in e-mail and tries too hard to be one of the gang and that person in this novel is Cassidy. It’s intimidating coming into a tight-knit group. That said, her little interjected e-mails just cracked me up.  The plotline, as it is reflected in e-mail, is fairly straightforward. The group discusses their lives as Ashley is pregnant and gets married; Ethan and Renee have relationship problems; Shelley contemplates moving; etc… Each character has a unique voice. Shelley is snarky and clever giving us the gem “Holiopathic” (a person who takes a ‘holier than thou’ approach to homeopathy). Ethan teases Ashley about baby names suggesting that she call her offspring “Cash, his nickname could be Loose Change.” Renee is the glue of the group and that person who forces her friends to stay in touch.  “Double Click” is a wonderful story that fits very neatly in the chick lit genre and is a fast and funny read.

This is the follow book to Click (make sure you read it first).  It follows the same style of writing as Click and picks up 6 months later.   The same characters are involved.  It is funny, charming and a quick read.  Great job on the second book Lisa.  I give it 3.5 stars.

Double Click starts six months after the first novel by Lisa Becker, Click: An Online Love Story.  It picks up right where the first left off.  Renee, Shelley, Ashley, Mark, and new character Cassidy all exchange quirky emails telling the story of their lives.  There is a marriage proposal, a new baby, and of course new loves.  This book is made up entirely of a series of emails between best friends and their mates.  These emails made me laugh, smile and nod my head knowingly.  All the questions I had at the end of the first book were answered.  As writh any good book I am left wondering what will happen next.  Will Shelley find love and will Mark finally find his soul mate, even if she is a cat fanatic. I loved the cover to this novel.  It is so perfect for the content.  It grabbed me and begged me to start reading. The funny, quirky, and close-knit group of friends made me look at my friends and compare them.  I was shocked at some of the similarities that I found.  The emails these friends shared were in email form, but were actually a running conversation that was easy to follow and easy to feel part of.  I did wonder how any of them got any work done and if their bosses knew how much time they spent sending personal emails.  I am anticipating another novel in this series and cannot wait.  If you are looking for a fun read.  I will definitely recommend this novel.  Although I do suggest you start with the first book so you have a good background on the story.

I read Click: An Online Story (my review) back in 2011, and really adored the story, characters, and format. When the author asked me about reviewing the follow-up, Double Click, I was so excited to find out what happened next. I think I had forgotten how much I truly enjoyed Click, and I found myself falling right back into these characters' lives. I loved how the story progressed with each new relationship, engagement, marriage, moves, and birth. I felt like I new Renee, Shelley, Ashley, Ethan, Finlay and the new addition to the gang. I know I'm being vague, but given the story format and the fact that I don't want to spoil the story, it is hard for me to go into many details of what happens in Double Click. Besides the fact that I loved the characters, what truly makes this series stand out is the format. This series is a story told in emails. I personally love stories told in email or journal, so this worked for me. I found myself flying through Double Click, and could have easily finished this in one sitting if not for life getting in the way. I was recently inducted into a group of online friends who exchange thoughts/wants/recommendations/rants solely through email. I think that gave me an added appreciation for a story told through emails. This group of mine, we/they are a group of very different personalities, tastes and temperament. And I can say with assurance that yes, you can truly "know" a person/group through the simple exchange of an email, or in our case, approximately fifty or so emails a day. I adore Click and Double Click. Any story that makes me laugh constantly, tear up occasionally, and leaves me feeling as if I've gained a few friends, is one that I can whole-heartedly recommend.

I was sent “Double Click” for review.  After having read and reviewed the first book, “Click: An Online Love Story”, I was glad to see this story continue.  I can only guess that Lisa has a third book in the works since this one ended at a good point to continue the story further.  A lot of my feelings didn’t change from book 1.  I still enjoyed the email conversation format but still wish Lisa would throw in some chapters of narration.  I would like to get more details about the wedding, meetings, fights, etc.   I did find this story a bit funnier than book 1.  I enjoyed the “pun-offs” the characters had and several of Renee’s past calamities were down-right funny.  My responses to Cassidy’s emails were pretty spot on with Shelley’s responses.  Cassidy’s character would have driven me up a wall with her emails.  I give “Double Click” 3/5 stars.  It was a nice continuance from book 1 and Lisa’s email only format is something unique but I would like more narration and that is my biggest issue.  I don’t quite feel the chemistry between Renee and Ethan because it’s nothing but email conversations.  I do hope there is a 3rd book because I would like to see where the story ends.

Double Click is the sequel to another fave of mine, Click, which I reviewed not too long ago here.  Chick lit is not usually my thing, but I can't help but love these books.  Renee is the central character in the book, but each of the others has their own story, too, including a new character Cassie.  Each one of them reminds the reader of someone they know in their own lives, both in good ways and in bad.   I absolutely love the author's unique technique of telling the story entirely through emails that are sent between the friends.  It seems like it would be hard to truly tell a full, well-rounded story that way, but it truly is. Things to love about Double Click...    --Renee and her friends.  I absolutely love them.  They are so different from one another and it keeps the story fun.  They are often irreverent, but they are all so fiercely loyal to one another.  Every one of them reminds me of someone in my own life.    --Ashley and her pregnancy.  However annoying she may be to me, I love that there was a strain of seriousness with her postpartum issues of pregnancy.    --The story's format.  As I said before, it was fantastically fun.  Every last bit of the story is told through emails, sometimes with disastrous results.  It didn't feel like a single thing was missing, even though there was, in reality, not one single scene that took place "live" and "in person." My recommendation:  RUN, don't walk, and read this fun novel!
