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.

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.

My 5 Star Review


There are not enough words to show how much I truly loved this story. Hooker and the Hermit had every element I love in a story. It was smart, witty, sexy, and written beautifully. It was so easy to get lost in this world with Annie and Ronan, so much so that I never wanted the story to end.

At first glance Annie and Ronan seem completely different, but as the story progresses it’s easy to see that regardless of their differences they are perfect for each other.

Annie is a hermit. She is shy, introverted, and doesn’t see the necessity with interacting face to face. She is also extremely intelligent, kind, and successful at what she does. What does Annie do? She is a fixer, much like Olivia Pope, but she fixes celebrities and she is the best in her field. That’s not her only job, just her public one, she also blogs as The Socialmedialite. She blogs anonymously and is famous for her witty assessments of people.


Despite seeming to have it all and having it all together she actually has abandonment issues. She prefers to be alone and avoid getting hurt again. She isn't negative about her feelings and doesn’t complain, she has accepted this is her life.

Ronan Fitzpatrick…hello swoon worthy! Ronan is a hooker. No, not that kind of hooker. A hooker is actually a position in Rugby - see learn something new everyday. The hooker is the equivalent of quarterback in American football. Ronan isn’t just any hooker, no he is believed to be the best in Ireland. So why is he in the US? Because he is in trouble and has been exiled to NYC. Okay not quite, he is here to get away and clear his head after hospitalizing his teammate. No fear ladies Ronan isn’t a bad guy, but when he found out his fiancé was cheating on him with his teammate he went a little crazy.


Ronan is actually an incredibly sweet, caring guy and is completely open to finding love again. At least he is when he meets Annie. He immediately see’s something in her and wants to get to know her. He decides to make it his mission to breakdown her barriers and get to know her.


This story is hilarious from the stories about things Annie has had to fix in her job, to her assessments blogging as SML and of course her life blunders. I love reading a story that is real life funny, meaning this story is funny because I can actually see the events taking place. This story reads like watching a romantic comedy, and I mean one of the great ones! It had the perfect balance of sweet, sexy, and wit.


I won’t go any further into the plot, because I truly believe everyone should read this story. I can’t imagine the majority not loving it, too. If you enjoy a story with fun, quirky heroine, a hot sexy Rugby player who excels at dirty talk and a plot that will keep you enthralled without any unnecessary drama or angst, this story is for you.
