Double Click by Lisa Becker (Spotlight/Excerpt)

Today we would like to share with you Lisa Becker's sequel to her romance, Click: an Online Love Story - Double Click!




Title: Double Click 
Author: Lisa Becker 
Series: sequel to Click: an Online Love Story 
Genre: Contemporary, Romance 
Release Date: March 27th 2013 
Length: 463 kb / 308 pages 
Double Click is a sequel to Click: An Online Love Story, the modern epistolary novel that book bloggers and reviewers called hilarious, clever and full of fun.

In the first book, fast approaching her 30th birthday and finding herself not married, not dating, and without even a prospect or a house full of cats, Renee Greene reluctantly joined her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles.  The story unfolded entirely through emails between Renee and her best friends as well as the gentlemen suitors she met online.  Fraught with BCC's, FWD's and inadvertent Reply to All's, readers rooted for Renee to "click" with the right man.

Double Click, which follows the same all-email format, picks up with the same main characters six months after the original books ends.  If the first book was about Renee’s search for love online, this book is about whether she and her friends have all found their “HEA” or “happily ever after.”  Through a marriage proposal, wedding, new baby and unexpected love twist, Double Click allows readers to cheer, laugh, cry and cringe following the email exploits of Renee and friends.

From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 9:43 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Miss me?



From:  Renee Greene – July 17, 2012 – 9:45 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

I do miss you, Shel.  But why are you sending me a picture of your boobs?


From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 9:47 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

Holy shit!  I sent you the wrong message.  Not much else to do but laugh and laugh.  And be thankful it went to you by accident and not my boss.


From:  Renee Greene – July 17, 2012 – 9:52 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

I’m thrilled to hear you didn’t intend to send a cleavage shot to your boss.  Who was this for?  You haven’t spoken much about anyone lately.  I was beginning to think you’d hit a dry spell. 


From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 9:57 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

Dry spell?  Me?  Never!  No, I just figured it was getting passé to continue talking about this stuff.  Plus, you’re in a serious relationship.  You have an exciting life of your own.


From:  Renee Greene – July 17, 2012 – 10:00 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

I will always want to hear of your dating adventures.  Those nicknames bring me such joy.


From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 10:02 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

I’ll keep that in mind.  In the meantime, I’ve got an email to send and you’ve got an email to delete.  Right?


From:  Renee Greene – July 17, 2012 – 10:06 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

Oh, I don’t think so.  You have a picture of me from Cancun in college.  As I recall, you’ve trotted that little factoid out on many an occasion when you are interested in getting me to do something I don’t want to.  Now I’ve got a little black“mail” of my own. 


From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 10:08 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

Fine.  Keep it.  Show it around if you want.  I’m proud of the rack.


From:  Renee Greene – July 17, 2012 – 10:10 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

UGH!  It’s no fun when you have no shame.  Why can’t you be embarrassed like normal people? 


From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 10:11 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

Sweetie, I’m anything but normal.  And I’ve got two great reasons to be proud in this case.


From:  Renee Greene – July 17, 2012 – 10:12 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

True, my friend.  True.  Okay, go send your sexy photo to…?


From:  Shelley Manning – July 17, 2012 – 10:13 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: Miss me?

…?  No one you know.  Call you later.  Mwah! Mwah!

Subject:  HUMP DAY

It's hump day.  Just thought you should know.


From:  Renee Greene – July 18, 2012 – 8:32 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: HUMP DAY

UGH!  I’m still at the office.  I’ve been working my fanny off and it’s only Wednesday.  I wouldn't be busting my hump like this for just any client.  Thankfully, they are appreciative of our work.


From:  Shelley Manning – July 18, 2012 – 8:35 PM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: HUMP DAY

I say “hump day” and that’s your take, Sweetie?  I’ve been working hard.  Listen up lady: It’s HUMP DAY.  So log off the computer, find your man and have at it.


From:  Renee Greene – July 18, 2012 – 8:36 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: HUMP DAY

I didn’t realize it was a command.


From:  Shelley Manning – July 18, 2012 – 8:38 PM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: HUMP DAY

Well it is!  Sadly, I have to remind you to have sex.


From:  Renee Greene – July 18, 2012 – 8:40 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: HUMP DAY

Is that your plan for the evening?  Perhaps with the gentleman who received your risqué photo yesterday?  What was his name again?


From:  Shelley Manning – July 18, 2012 – 8:42 PM

Subject:  Re: HUMP DAY

Nice try, Sweetie.  Go have some fun.  Mwah! Mwah!
