New York’s Finest
Blogging as *The Socialmedialite*
April 22
LADIES AND GENTS! I have an announcement!

You know that guy I featured on my blog a few months ago? The really, really hot Irish rugby player who plays the position of ‘hooker’ in the RLI (Rugby League International)? The one with the anger management issues, the body of a gladiator and the face of a movie star? The one with the questionable fashion choices leading me to ask whether he was the lovechild of a leprechaun and a hobbit? Ronan Fitzpatrick? Yeah, that guy.

Well, I have a confession to make…

THE HERMIT

Annie Catrel, social media expert extraordinaire at Davidson & Croft Media and clandestine celebrity blogger, can make anyone shine in the court of public opinion. She is the Socialmedialite, anonymous creator of New York’s Finest and the internet’s darling. Virtual reality is Annie’s forte, but actual reality? Not so much.

THE HOOKER

Ronan Fitzpatrick, aka the best hooker the world of rugby has seen in decades, despises the media—social or otherwise. The press has spun a web of lies depicting him as rugby’s wild and reckless bad boy. Suspended from his team, Ronan has come to Manhattan to escape the drama, lay low, fly under the radar. Only, Ronan isn’t easy to overlook, and he can’t escape the notice of the Socialmedialite…

THE PLAN

When Ronan is sent to Davidson & Croft Media to reshape his public image, he never expects to cross paths with shy but beautiful Annie, nor does he expect his fierce attraction to her. He couldn’t be happier when her boss suggests pairing them together.

What lengths will Annie take to keep her virtual identity concealed? And what happens when the hooker discovers who the hermit really is?

The Hooker and the Hermit is a collaboration between authors L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid, is a full length 100k word novel, and is a standalone.

5 out of 5 stars

 

This was so amazingly awesome. Loved it all! Fantastic read! I'm totally in love with Ronan!

 

Loved Annie and Ronan. Told from dial POV’s, I thought they both had an excellent voice. Right from the beginning I was all in. Annie is so introverted and awkward but she had such endearing qualities about her. Sometimes she had this deer-in-headlights thing going on and I thought it was so great and it could be highly entertaining! I loved her, got frustrated with her, rooted for her, and cheered for her. I thought she had great character development as we learn the ends and outs of her past and watch her open up. Loved the aspect of real life versus her blogging life and how that all came together in the end. And Ronan, I am in serious love with this man. So playful, flirty, and forward, I love how open and sweet he is. He’s a little dirty and kinky too, oh my! ;-)

 

These two had such fantastic chemistry. I loved seeing everything between them grow as they open up and deal with past issues. There was drama and I got all kinds of stressed out a few times, but there were also all these great light, funny moments that had me giggling. A nice amount of schmexy that came with this fantastic slow burn and anticipation. It was awesome! Really great build.

 

Totally solid read. Fantastic ending! Loved the huge romantic gesture of putting yourself out there. Made my heart happy! I could go on but I'd get sappy and I'm running out of adjectives. Loved the writing and the story. I adored how the chapters were set up at the beginning, that was fun. This was excellent. A must read!
