Chicklitbooks.com Hit Reply was amazing. Not only did each character have their own distinctive voice, but the characters were hilarious, amusing, and realistic. The story line itself was absorbing and fun....an irresistibly funny story. With memorable characters and surprising plot twists, causing the reader to laugh, cry, and get a smile on their face that just doesn't go away until hours after they've finished the book.
TheBestReviews.com This book is written entirely in e-mails and IMs (instant messages). At first I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the format, but after a few pages, it was almost like sitting down at my own computer and catching up with friends. I really got to know not only the three main characters, but others in the book as well. I found it entertaining, romantic and with surprising emotional depth. If you've ever found comfort in an e-mail from a friend or thought about 'googling' that cute guy from high school, you'll enjoy this book.
The BestReviews.com Hit Reply is a phenomenal story that will not only tickle your funny bone, but touch the deepest parts of your heart and soul. Even though the story is all emails and instant messaging, you don't really miss a thing because Ms. St. Claire fills in the blanks that don't happen on screen perfectly...the best story I have ever read. Engrossed in the story is an understatement! Once I started, I never stopped reading until I turned the very last page. A story that has you laughing out loud one minute, then tearing up the next. Hit Reply is one book you don't want to miss.

Stephanie used to work with Amber before she married a hotel executive and moved away from Boston to Miami. Now Stephanie is in a marriage that is not fulfilling her life as much as she thought it would. Her husband Brent is always away and she has reason to believe that he is cheating on her. Tom, a married man that Stephanie was involved with before she hooked up with Brent contacted her about rejoining the advertising agency on a project that would be perfect for her. She could work at home and have a purpose to her life instead of just being a wife and mother. Through the constant contact with Tom, they too begin a relationship that Stephanie calls e-dultery and begins to wonder where the lines end from having some fun and actually committing adultery.
Don't let the cover, title, and genre fool you. Hit Reply is much more than your average chick lit novel. It deals with some serious issues like cancer and adultery that will leave you laughing and crying. The friendships and relationships between these people are very realistic and make for a great read. I would also like to add that even though the entire book is written in email and IM format (which I normally no not like reading) somehow works with Hit Reply.
The e-mails and IMs make this novel a fun treat. Creating a convincing plot development and characterization that way can't be easy, but it worked out quite nicely. I admit that the e-mails and Instant Messages became a bit tiresome after a while though. I began to miss the conventional narratives and dialogue in novels. The novel has the signature wit and sassiness of chick-lit, but it also deals with some rather serious dilemmas, like infidelity and cancer. The way the author handled the development of the story centered on those subject matters impressed me. Rocki St. Claire is a great new chick-lit author.Read more ›
Amber Fleece is moving up at a Boston ad agency. Still looking for Mr. Right, she registers with an online site to get the email address of the guy who stole her heart (among other things) on prom night. Should she email him? Ignore his instant messages? Does the hip, urban woman really want to get involved with a guy who paints houses for a living and writes country music, and is living with another woman? The Harvard grad she's dating seems like the perfect man (at least to her friends and family) but sometimes out-of-your-league is preferable to Ivy League, especially when something more serious than the identity of Ben Affleck's current squeeze invades your life.
Stephanie Hilliard was Amber's boss at the ad agency. But Stevie traded suits for sweats, legal pads for coloring books, and the rat race for motherhood. She adores her children, but hugs, kisses and finger paintings on the fridge are beginning to lose their luster. Combine that with her husband's heavy travel schedule and suddenly Stevie begins to think she's probably as interesting as gum on the sidewalk. And when he starts traveling with a beautiful brunette assistant, she feels threatened and scared. A job offer from left field shakes things up a bit, especially since it's from her old agency and a man she'd had a pre-marriage attraction to. She's tempted - both to take the job and renew the attraction with her old flame.Read more ›

I do NOT read chick lit to read about cancer, and I would never have bought this book if I knew that was a subject of this book, especially for a woman in her twenties.Published on March 6, 2014 by Mae Johns
Interesting book....The book description threw me off though. It is written in email and IM's which made it kind of hard to follow for me....but I did still really enjoy it! Read morePublished on August 2, 2013 by Lexi from Book Reviews by Lexi
