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.

My Review

“That’s right, I’m a reclusive pervert, and I make no apologies for it.”

Sexy little read from two awesome authors. I usually stay away from collaborations, don’t ask me why, they just aren’t something I’m into. But for these 2 awesome authors, I was down. We get the hotness of LH Cosway and the witty fun side of Penny Reid.

I didn’t even read the blurb. So, going in I thought this would be a story about a Hooker and a Hermit…lol! Well, the hermit part is true for Annie, but Ronan (love his name) is no hoe, he plays Rugby and the position he plays is called a hooker. LOVE IT!
I thought the storyline was good and love that Annie was a blogger on the DL. Gotta connect with that 😉 and Ronan and all his athletic, kinky, Irish self was very delish.

“I feel like I could lose myself and find myself in you, Annie.”

Saying all that, I don’t think this was my favorite from these authors. I found some of it drawn out and Annie drove me a bit bonkers after a while. But all in all a solid 3.5 stars!
