Synopsis: New York’s Finest February 14, 2015

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 questionable fashion choices leading me to ask whether he was the lovechild of a leprechaun and a hobbit? The one with the anger management issues and the body of a gladiator and the face of a movie star? 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
The collaboration between these two authors was successful: a story came out really bright, funny and romantic. It 's so addictive that once you start you can not put it down. The plot is not very original but the two main characters are so real, so believable, so ironic and amusing to create a magical atmosphere. It 's very easy to empathize with them because the story is told from them in the first person, alternating in the various chapters
Annie is a very shy girl, anxious, works for a public relations firm, but most of the work carried out from home. She also has a successful blog that likes to find famous people around New York and mock them or exalt them, The same fate comes to Ronan Fitzpatrick, an Irish rugby star: dress is so ridiculous that Annie can not not mention him, he seems the son of a Hobbit (fails to note, however, the sad look of the boy and immediately feel an infinite tenderness for him). The guy does not take it well and start an email exchange anything but friendly.
Ronan was just put off team for violent conduct and must reevaluate his image. His agent is directed to the agency where  works Annie and will have to be just the bloggers to take care of him. Annie always dresses in clothing not flashy and very large to go unnoticed and blend in with the wallpaper (as she puts it) but her head wants to change her image for the good of the company. So in addition to attending a hateful person for she is forced to change her clothes and to attract attention of the people on her. Investigating among Ronan's friends she discovers that the boy is really special: he had a difficult childhood, is very attached to his mother and sister and is generous to all, especially with the teammates. Will the Irish to get out there the shy Annie? Discovers that the girl who fascinates and which is falling in love is the same that hates via email?
Ronan page after page becomes the ideal guy: is sweet, romantic, charming. He has a wonderful relationship with his family and especially with his sister Lucy. He lost his father as a child and became very soon the breadwinner. Approaches Annie slowly: first is attracted by her beauty but knowing discovers love her sweetness and tenderness.
It 's a novel funny, ironic, romantic and sexy, to read for those who love romance.

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing). By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
