Synopsis: These days, finding love online is as commonplace as ordering that coveted sweater. But back in 2003, the whole concept of Internet dating was still quite new, with a stigma attached to it that meant those who were willing to test the waters faced a fair amount of skepticism from friends and family. Such is the case for Chloe Thompson, a restless 20-something tired of the typical dating scene and curious about what she might find inside her parents’ computer. With two serious but failed relationships behind her, Chloe isn’t even entirely sure what she’s looking for. She just knows that whatever it is, she wants to find it.Based loosely on author K. J. Farnham’s real-life online dating experiences, Chloe’s foray into online dating involves a head-first dive into a world of matches, ice breakers and the occasional offer of d__k pics, all while Chloe strives to shake herself of the ex who just refuses to disappear. Will she simultaneously find herself and “the one” online, or will the ever-growing pile of humorous and downright disastrous dates only prove her friends and family right? There’s only one way to find out…
When I picked up this novel, I was so excited to read it! I really wanted to love it. I was hoping this could be a great book since it seemed to had everything I liked in a book. The cover, title, and premise sounded intriguing.. There aren't that many books about online dating, and I've read quite a few on it.. I read this book right away, I felt the beginning was promising and I enjoyed reading Chloe Thompson's adventures.
- Chloe hasn't had any success in relationships, so she tries online dating. I laughed along with her, and was creeped out when she was. Some adventures were hilarious, and others were just downright creepy. I liked this novel overall, I thought it was a refreshing concept and it was entertaining but some parts are flawed. It discusses many adventures some women encounter everyday. I also liked the dangers it mentions of online dating as well. I liked the friendship Chloe had with two of her best friends Jess and Shelly. It's always nice to see women supporting each other, instead of hating. The book did have it's good parts, but also the flawed parts.
- Chloe Thompson is a teacher, she's intelligent and kind. However, I felt at a lot of times she was shallow and too extreme with her judgment. I understand physical looks do matter to a point - I felt she judged someone who didn't meet her expectations too easily though. I did like Chloe's maturity and growth in the end though, but it felt too late. I couldn't understand her. She became a better person and wasn't as picky anymore though.
- I loved it when she realized she doesn't need to be in a relationship to be happy. I liked the message the novel gave. This novel falls into romance, but I feel it's also about a woman's journey to self-discovery. Sometimes, there too many guys in this story. I felt she ended up picking the wrong guys, and left the nice guys who could have been right for her hanging.
- I liked Sean the best out of all her potential matches, he was honest and told her everything from the start. Patrick was a bit loud, but charming, and quite kind as well. I was a bit disappointed with the ending though. The ending is an open note so let's see what happens next!
- I liked the book overall. Click, Date, Repeat had a lot of potential although, it had its flaws. I loved the sense of humor in the novel, and the message it tried to portrayed. I enjoyed reading it as well. I do look forward to the sequel of this book though since the book ended on an open note.
