Erin Cochrane loves the gossip and the countless bizarre stories about her best friend Bex’ adventures with online dating. Not that she’d ever sign up for the site herself. Erin’s far too busy planning her dream wedding to her gorgeous fiancĂ©, Tyson. 

But when Tyson decides that he is not ready for marriage, Erin’s world is turned upside down. Forced to move back in with her eccentric mother, things couldn’t get any worse. Thrust back into the singles’ scene, could online dating be the escape Erin needs from it all? Or will it be just another disaster? 
From stalkers to cheapskates, Erin feels as though she’s become a magnet for every loser around, until she opens one message that changes everything. 

An intriguing novel about modern dating and unexpected encounters that will keep you entertained right up to the very last page.

Before starting this I was expecting We Just Clicked to be yet another book about online dating, with a helping of funny anecdotes about dates from hell. Although the story did start going in that direction there is so much more to it than that, especially after Erin gets a message from the dating site that really catches her eye. 

Just reading that message, I would have been tempted to date the man in question, so was glad when Erin, against her misgivings met up and had a fabulous date. From there one, the story becomes a lot more romantic, with some lovely dates, and he's the sort of man, that doesn't even have a problem with Erin's somewhat eccentric mother. 

Erin's mother Delia, is the life and soul of any party, she is larger than life, swaps hobbies more regularly than people change their socks. She may have a habit of embarrassing Erin regularly, and a different interpretation of borrowing to other people, but she clearly loves Erin, and just wants what is best for her. 

We Just Clicked is incredibly entertaining, and had me hooked. I thankfully had some free time when I started it, as  before long I was over half way and didn't even notice. It's probably more of a longer novella than full blown novel, but that doesn't detract from how easy it was to read, and what a great way to while away a few hours. 

Thanks so much to Netgalley and So Vain Books for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.
