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.

Note: This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

Obsessed. That is one word to describe how I have become with all of Penny Reid’s books. This is the third one that I have read from her and I think every single one of them got 5 star reviews from me. That is crazy! I am a huge fan of her blend of comedy, wittiness and romance. It is something that seems to work for me every single time. I didn’t even know this was a collaboration between Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway until I started to put this post together. Now I have another author on my radar. I must find some more of L.H. Cosway’s books to read.

There are so many things that I loved about The Hooker and the Hermit, so I am just going to give you a few of the highlights. And before we start that, get your minds out of the gutter- this kind of hooker is the rugby equivalent of a quarterback. Ok, back to the things that I loved about The Hooker and the Hermit. First, and most importantly it is such a well written book. I love Penny Reid, and now L.H. Cosway’s writing style. They make me feel like I along for the ride with Annie and Ronan, like I really know them in real life. These are the kinds of writers were you will find the most realistic book boyfriends and bookish best friends.

Another thing I loved was the way they infused humor into the story. Annie is a clutz and is very socially awkward, so that makes for some hilarious scenes. I am thinking in particular about a certain bakery scene that still has me giggling. And I really, really loved the little tweets, and definitions of different ways to take photos with your cell phone on the sly. They cracked me up because I could imagine Annie doing all of them. Annie is famous celebrity blogger, who uses good natured humor to poke fun of male celebs. And Ronan was one of her victims on the blog early on. You can see on the front cover. the way she dissects her male guests in her posts.

Annie is super quirky and cute. She sends her emails in infographic form! I want to do that now. haha. And I loved how much Ronan was completely besotted by her. Speaking of Ronan, can I even just say he is my ideal male lead in books. He is strong and sweet, and has that touch of possessive jealousy that gets my heart beating a little faster. Ronan and Annie are such a treat to read about. I want more from them!! Do yourself a favor and read this book. And if you have not read any of Penny Reid’s books, you are really, really, reallllyyy missing out.

About Penny Reid

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.
