Synopsis

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?

Review

The hooker and the hermit tells us the story of Annie and Ronan, Annie is a shy and associable girl, she has a job in a press relations agency and incognito she is also a Cyber Spy. A role that suits her well, she criticizes the dress of the stars and has fun. Ronan is an Irish rugby player, his media image leaves something to be desired following a rather violent altercation with a teammate with whom his girlfriend sleeps.

So much for the presentation of the characters, I found the character of Annie sympathetic even if she has reactions that irritate me at times, especially towards the end. I understand that her need to stay in the shadows is important but at some point in life, you have to choose if love is enough or not.

Ronan is a very nice boy, he has flaws like everyone else and I was a little disappointed at one point towards the end when he chased Annie to the United States but once he arrived it was as if he had changed his mind and finally he no longer wants her in his life. I understand the idea but in that case why did you come back to the USA and not stay in Ireland?

Apart from that, I loved the way Ronan fell in love with Annie, slowly but surely, I also loved seeing him fall under the spell of A Cyber Spy. Annie on her side has to fight against her desire to hide, she is an intelligent person who knows what she wants and what she does not want.

I liked this story, I laughed a lot and the characters know how to be funny. The style of L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid is very addictive. The book reads quickly and I had a good time relaxing.

Quick Word: An interesting and funny story between two totally different people.
