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?

Val’s Review

5,000 Top Shelf, “Shit, Shit, Star Wars” Stars

I fucking LOVED this book.

Seriously…Every. Single. Second.

If I could string the words that comprised this book into a roll of yarn I would make a damned blanket out of it and wrap myself up forever.

This thing was like the best rom-com you’ve ever seen. With a dash of off the chain sexual tension, a sprinkling underpinning of awesomely geek-tastic witticisms, and a underlying mega dose of solidarity for all of us GR freakswho interact through our computers day in and day out.

Plus, Ronan was THE cheese on this skank’s cracker.

Speaking of Ronan, since I am apparently in a casting mood today…

Here you go.

Because…duh. The authors said he looked liked Colin Farrell.

And because I say, why fuck with perfection?

Annie.

And of course, we can’t leave out Joan:

Poor Danny Joan. Poor, poor Joan.

I don’t even know what else to say about this aside from mindless gushing.

The characters were great.
The story was great.
The writing was great.

In short, it was…GREAT.

Go read it.
