Right Click is the third and final installment in the Click: An Online Love Story trilogy by author Lisa Becker.  Click: An Online Love Story, Double Click and Right Click, which all unfold exclusively in emails, marry the friendships of “Sex and the City,” the epistolary nature of “Bridget Jones’ Diary” and the online love story of “You’ve Got Mail” to be light and breezy stories for anyone who's ever been dumped, been in love, had a bad date or is still searching for "the one."  

Lisa Becker had endured her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates, many of which inspired Click: An Online Love Story and Double Click.  She is now happily married to a wonderful man she met online and lives in Manhattan Beach with him and their two daughters.  So, if it happened for her, there’s hope for you! http://www.lisawbecker.com/


Click: An Online Love StoryPurchase at Amazon today!
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, the heroine of Click: An Online Love Story, reluctantly joins her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles. The story unfolds entirely through emails between Renee and her best friends (anal-compulsive Mark, the overly-judgmental Ashley and the over-sexed Shelley) as well as the gentlemen suitors she meets online. From the guy who starts every story with "My buddies and I were out drinking one night," to the egotistical “B” celebrity looking for someone to stroke his ego, Renee wades into the shallow end of the dating (cess)pool and endures her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates. Fraught with BCC's, FWD's and inadvertent Reply to All's, readers will cheer, laugh, cry and cringe following the email exploits of Renee and friends. And ultimately, they will root for Renee to "click" with the right man. 


Double Click Purchase at Amazon today!
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. 



Love. Marriage.  Infidelity. Parenthood. Crises of identity. Death. Cupcakes. The themes in Right Click, the third and final installment in the Click series, couldn't be more pressing for this group of friends as they navigate through their 30's. Another six months have passed since we last eavesdropped on the hilarious, poignant and often times inappropriate email adventures of Renee and friends. As the light-hearted, slice of life story continues to unfold, relationships are tested and some need to be set "right" before everyone can find their "happily ever after."

Hi, Sweetie.  You sounded downright chipper yesterday talking about your own agency.  I'm so glad you have something positive to focus on aside from how lucky you are to have me as a best friend.  Oh, and your wedding to Ethan.  

So Nick and I have become obsessed with Inside the Actor's Studio.  Even though I hate celebrities, I can't seem to tear myself away from this series.  My fav part is the James Lipton questions at the end.  So much so, that I've put together my responses for when being as hot and fabulous as I am merits inclusion as a guest on the show.  

Want to play along?

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

I'm not surprised that Nick likes the show.  He's totally star struck.  He is constantly asking me about any celebrities I've worked with and when we saw that actress from The Good Wife, he was giddy.  The questionnaire sounds fun.  Send the questions over.

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

He is pretty star struck.  It's actually quite sexy.  He likes to pretend that I'm a famous actress and he's a fan.  But that's a story for another time.  Okay, here are the James Lipton questions...

What is your favorite word? 
What is your least favorite word? 
What turns you on?  
What turns you off?  
What sound or noise do you love?  
What sound or noise do you hate?  
What is your favorite curse word?  
What profession other than your own would like to attempt?  
What profession would you not like to do?  
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

OMG!  I am already reeling at the thought of your X-rated answers.

Yeah, mine are pretty good.

Are you going to share?

You first.


From:  Renee Greene – January 22, 2014 – 9:19 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

Okay.  Here goes… 

What is your favorite word?  Thank you.  Okay, it's two words but one phrase that I feel like no one says anymore.  As you know, manners are very important to me.
What is your least favorite word?  It’s a tie between “moist” and “panties” with extra "fingernails-down-the-blackboard-style chills" when the two words are used together.    
What turns you on?  Humor.  That's probably why I'm head over heels in love with Jon Stewart...oh, and Ethan too.  ;)
What turns you off?  Petty squabbles.  The world has enough problems without arguing and fretting over inconsequential stuff.   
What sound or noise do you love?  My sweet angel, Siobhan, in fits of giggles. And believe me, no one gets her laughing it up like Auntie Renee.
What sound or noise do you hate?  Airplanes taking off.  Fatal accidents are more likely to occur during the climbing stage of flight and that sound of the engines revving up just fuh-reaks me out!     
What is your favorite curse word?  Mother#@$%er!   Enough said!  
What profession other than your own would like to attempt?   Professional cake decorator.  It looks so fun and yummy.
What profession would you not like to do?   Accountant.  As you know, my checkbook rarely balances.  
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?  I know Jews don't believe in heaven, but we're happy to have you here, the cupcakes are calorie-free and your hair looks great.

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

Moist panties?  That was my answer for favorite word.  Ha-larious!  THANK YOU (I know you love hearing that) for the embellishments on the responses.  Definitely puts things into more perspective for me.  Time for my responses.  Are you sitting down?


From:  Renee Greene – January 22, 2014 – 9:29 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

I am sitting down.  And I’ve got a cold drink of water on hand in case I need to douse the flames of the heat rising inside of my loins from your tawdry responses.

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

LOL!  You need to start writing cheesy romance novels.  Perhaps that should be your new career.

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

I will give it some thought if my own agency doesn't work out or I smother Skinny Skye out of sheer jealousy and end up in jail with lots of time on my blood-stained hands to write.  For now, I need your answers, please.


From:  Shelley Manning – January 22, 2014 – 9:45 PM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

What is your favorite word?  Pleasure.  
What is your least favorite word?  Intolerance.
What turns you on?   Experimentation.
What turns you off?   Monotony.
What sound or noise do you love?  Screams of ecstasy.
What sound or noise do you hate?  Morning alarm clock.
What is your favorite curse word?   Cocksucker!
What profession other than your own would like to attempt?  Sex phone operator   .
What profession would you not like to do?  Preschool teacher.
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?  Yeah, right, like I'm going to Heaven.  Ha-Larious!  But, I suppose miracles do happen.  If that's the case, I expect God to say, "Shake that heavenly ass on in."


From:  Renee Greene – January 22, 2014 – 9:50 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

Somehow I doubt that God is using the phrase "heavenly ass" but otherwise, the answers are pretty spot on to what I had anticipated.


From:  Shelley Manning – January 22, 2014 – 9:52 PM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

Oh, no.  Am I becoming too predictable?  As we've just established, I think monotony is a turn off.


From:  Renee Greene – January 22, 2014 – 9:54 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

You're not predictable.  Your sexiness and sassiness are just anticipated because I know you so well.

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

Works for me.  Okay, I'm going to run.  This heavenly ass is going to get some beauty rest, not that I need it.


From:  Renee Greene – January 22, 2014 – 9:58 PM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

If you need beauty rest, I need to hibernate.  Just kidding!  Don't go all "pep talk" on me.


From:  Shelley Manning – January 22, 2014 – 10:00 PM

Subject:  Re: James Lipton Questionnaire

Good one.  And thank you for sparing me the pep talk.  I'm definitely too tired for that tonight.  Mwah! Mwah!
