Goodreads Summary:
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.

My thoughts:
Double Click is the sequel to Click: An Online Love Story. These two books are told through a series of emails between four characters: Ashley, Renee, Shelley and Mark. However in this book a few names have been added to the email list as the characters embark on new relationships. I really liked the first book, but this book didn't quite measure up. For example, the beginning of the book starts out with a wedding, and I was confused as to who exactly was getting married. At first I thought it was Renee. After how the last book ended, I thought it was possible. It took a couple of pages before I realized it was Ashley who was getting married. It was a little confusing to say the least. However there are some positive and negative developments that happen in this book. Mark finally meets a woman who he really likes, but the gang isn't too keen on her. Renee and Ethan are having relationship troubles due to Ethan working all the time. Lots of relationship drama. 
Although I didn't like this book as much as Click, I still thought it was good. It almost reads as if you'd been bcc'd and are reading emails that you shouldn't be. Some of the emails are funny while some are boring. However, overall, the story is entertaining. I would recommend reading Click first otherwise some things will be lost on the reader.
