a sample of what people are saying about, with just one click...

A Novel Review

"The lives of three women are drastically changed after they decide to sign-up for the social networking site, Facebook. Amanda Strong explores the "what if's" most people have thought about as they enter the social networking world but never succumb to.  I loved this book. It was funny, witty, and touching. I didn't want to put this book down. I thought the ending was perfect."

" I was very intrigued by the topic and wondered how an entire book could be devoted to writing about three women and their experiences with Facebook. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading the book. Amanda Strong was able to keep me interested in following the lives of these three women by the constant building of excitement of what was going to happen next. With the world entering into cyberspace, to have a main character be Facebook was truly fascinating."

Chick Lit Plus

"I was searching my word banks to come up with a one word description of with just one click, and I think I got it: riveting. This was a riveting novel. I loved how each character showed a different side to what can happen when you join social media':the good, bad, and ugly. Trust me when I say this book will get you talking.  I've talked to my boyfriend, mom, co-workers, and brought up the story in random conversations with friends, simply because I was so intrigued. I thought Strong's writing and ability to master three characters was exceptional., and the ending provided a nice twist that I didn't see coming. This is a must read, and definite for my Favorites List!"


From the Paramus Post...

With Just One Click...,

Cupid is poised and ready to take aim but what happens if he hits you with a boomerang? Instead of a new love setting hearts on fire, it’s an old flame trying to rekindle the romance.

Perfect for February is the new book, With Just One Click..., by critically acclaimed author Amanda Strong. When three women receive friend requests via FaceBook by their ex’s, their worlds are turned upside down. Chloe Brennan receives a friend request from an ex she hasn’t seen for 17 years. Morgan and EJ Davis have a solid marriage but jealousy creeps in when EJ is friended by his sexy ex. Brynn Haggerty is an unhappy wife and mother until she begins to find the time and attention she’s been missing through an online relationship with her ex.
Insightful and controversial, With Just One Click explores:
• Facebook’s role as a pimp – Is it providing tools for its users to cheat?
• The hidden dangers of FB
• How social media has changed the way we communicate
• The hallmarks of cyber-relationships – texting, emailing, and posting
• Today’s Pandora’s Box of social media
“Just remember,” says Strong, “while the lure of an old flame is enticing, sometimes it’s best to know when to step aside and let Cupid’s arrow miss its mark!”
