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?
Thoughts on The Hooker and the Hermit: I became a dedicated Penny Reid fan a couple books back (Fangirl. I mean a die-hard fangirl. Just so we're clear) and I've never regretted anything less than this. ANYTHING. I love her writing and I'm GIDDY beyond belief to read anything by her whether it's co-written or singly-written. That said, I think this book gave me a new author to send smoldering looks toward. Well played, author duo. Well played.

Soooo... Ronan and Annie. He's got a bit of bite and swagger, she hides behind baggy clothes and a failure to make eye contact. She doesn't hide online, though. Well, she does. That whole anonymity thing, but she's her under the fake name and sass. She's the Annie she would be if her social anxiety didn't tangle her up. Ronan sees all her hangups and likes her anyway.

Then he more than likes her and things get interesting. GLORIOUSLY INTERESTING!

I seriously can't wait to watch the other members of Ronan's team fall for their special lady friends.
