Reviews of The Hooker and the Hermit by Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway

Peggy reviewed on March 13, 2015

The hooker and the hermit is the first book that is writing by the writers L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid together. And I can tell you it calls for more books from this duo. I was already a big fan from L.H. Cosway but this was the first time I have read something from Penny Reid but it will not be the last time!!

Annie Catrel (= the hermit) is a woman whose life consists of her job at Davidson & Croft Media as a social media expert and her secret hobby as a celebrity blogger aka ‘The Socialmedialite’. Annie lives her life behind the computer, unlike her real life that is lonely but safe, her virtual life is filled with friends (although she has never spoken or seen one of them in real life!) and excitement. But that’s the way Annie likes it.

But that’s about to change. One day at work she meets the hot Irish rugby player Ronan Fitzpatrick (= the hooker) for the second time (only he doesn’t know that) . Ronan Fitzpatrick has had a bad time, first he discover his fiancée having sex with one of his teammates, then he lost his temper and fought with this teammate during a game. So now he’s suspended from the team! His plan is now to come to Manhattan (away from the scandal in Ireland) and live a quiet life while working on his condition untill he gets back on the team. But that’s hard with the paparazzi lurking around and now someone called ‘The socialmedialite’ is blogging about him!! Ronan is so angry about this that he decides to send this blogger an angry email.

But his management think that it’s about time for Ronan to reshape his public image, so they send him to Davidson & Croft to do that. This is where he meets Annie for the first time (or so he thinks!). He feels an instant attraction to her. He likes it that she’s shy and a little different than other women he knows. So when her boss suggests that Annie will work with him he couldn’t be happier. That’s the opposite about how Annie feels about this news. But her boss leaves her no other choice.

So here starts the work relationship between the two of them. A relationship that Ronan hopes will change in a love relationship but this could be hard. Because not only is Annie shy and a little bit antisocial, she also has had a difficult childhood. Something that made her decide to stay far away from love. And what Ronan also doesn’t know is that the person he sends emails to, the person he knows as ‘The sociamedialite’ is Annie! So you see there is a lot going on in this story and then you also have Roman’s mother and his ex-fiancée who aren’t happy with this relationship!!

Like I said before, I didn’t know what to expect from this book, since it was the first time that these writers wrote a book together but I can tell you now that I just fell in love with this book! I love the humor in this book, the emails, the twitters (or twatters like Ronan likes to say). I really hope that L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid will write another book together. Fingers crossed!
