Blog Tour! The Blogger And The Hunk By Jane Matisse

The Blogger

Penelope Luciano, a virginal wallflower who lives the life of a hermit, has always been overlooked. But everything changes when she trades her quiet night with a book for a rare night out with her friends.

The Hunk 

Jack Goodman, a confident skirt chaser, has always been a womanizer. But everything changes when he meets clumsy Penelope, and their first kiss turns into a night of passion.

When Penelope sneaks out the morning after, neither one expects to see each other again until they are thrown together in unexpected circumstances.

When pride and self-doubt get in the way, it's up to both the blogger and the hunk to attain their equal footing and find the strength to chase what they really want.

The Blogger And The Hunk should have been right up this book whore’s alley.  These are the types of books I usually really enjoy, and I did enjoy it but I just didn’t love it.  Penelope and Jack have a one night stand but neither knew that Penelope was Jack’s best friends sister so when they meet up again it isn’t exactly a happy reunion.  There were some laugh out loud moments for sure in this book but there was a lot of back and forth hating/loving of these characters as well as comments made by Jack throughout the book about Penelope and her looks that really rubbed this blogging book whore the wrong way.  I won’t even get into my feelings about her sister and how she treats her.

The Blogger And The Hunk had the potential of being a sweet, funny and sexy weekend read but it unfortunately fell flat,  I didn’t feel that the connection between any of these characters was real, it felt forced.  The angst that could have really propelled this book to the next level was mild and just didn’t add to the plot.  I don’t know if this is a situation where it just didn’t work for me but will work for others or if it was the book itself but I sadly felt unfulfilled with The Blogger And The Hunk, so I hope others will like it better than I did.
