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 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.

Favorite Quote:

  It reminds me of something I heard once.
 Can't recall if it was a comedian or a friend, but it was something about how we women hide our bra and underpants under our clothes when we go to the gynecologist's office because we don't want the doctor to see them, and how ironic that is, since that doctor is going to be up in our privates -- as you call them -- checking it all out anyway. HA!
  Speaking of which, I'll be hitting the exam table tomorrow for my annual exam. TMI? ;)  ~eARC, 76%
