    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?

    Fluttering Thoughts:

    Worldbuilding: This novel takes place in New York and Ireland, mostly in and around Annie’s home and work.
    Characters: The main characters in this novel are Annie Catrel and Ronan Fitzpatrick. Annie has a secret. By day is she is a social media expert and public image shaper and by night a stealthy celebrity blogger! She is, by her own definition, a hermit, and interacting with people in person is a little harder than she wishes it was. Unfortunately, her day job is requiring just that, her task is to give Ronan Fitzpatrick a new public image. But interacting with him is easier said than done when all he wants to do is flirt with her. As new feelings arise and comfort levels are tested, Annie becomes smitten. But when her secret identity becomes threatened all she wants to do is retreat back into her virtual reality. Can Ronan break Annie out of her shell? Or will they both lose out on getting to know one another?
    Plot: This is mainly a romance between Annie and Ronan with a crazy ex and a few meddling family members thrown in!
    Writing: This novel is written in first person points of view of Annie and Ronan. This is the first story in the Rugby series and it is also a standalone.
    Curb Appeal: I love the cover, it’s so much fun!! It isn’t a typical cover and that makes it refreshing! The blurb is equally entertaining! It gives a great background on the characters and sets up the scene for the readers.
    Ultimately: I loved these characters, especially Annie! I laughed more times than I could count and I cannot wait to continue this series!! All in all, if you are in the mood for a hero who wants to give his woman the world and a heroine who is more than meets the eye then come check out The Hooker and the Hermit!!!!!

    I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
