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.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

This was full of humour and fun as Jack and Penelope find themselves thrust into each other's presence time and time again.  We have the playboy in Jack, and the wallflower and virgin with Penelope.  After one in bed together, they believe they will never set eyes on each other again.  Funny how life doesn't work out the way you want it.  Jack is Penelope's sister's best friend and her Maid of Honor.  While Penelope is not into hearts and romance (despite being a freelance editor of romance novels) she is disappointed by her sister's choice.  It does become clear as Penelope puts her work before her sister that she probably made the best choice.  

The contrast between Jack and Penelope, in addition to the many laughs, is what made this read.  It was a quick read but it packed a punch in the humour department.

Jane Matisse is a professional introvert who began reading romance novels at the age of thirteen. She graduated with a BA in English Literature in 2014 and has been working hard ever since to put her degree to good use. Although it took her two years to finally finish her very first rough draft, she is thrilled to be releasing her debut The Blogger and the Hunk soon. Matisse loves all things Jane Austen, will choose tea over coffee any day, is a Phantom of the Opera aficionado, and has been an avid book blogger since 2013. She currently lives in SoCal with her family and three fur babies: Max, Thumper, and Percy.
