Description

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.

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.

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. What lengths will Annie take to keep her virtual identity concealed? And what happens when Ronan discovers who she really is?

Contains mature themes.

4.5 Stars

The Hooker and the Hermit by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid (Audio Edition)
Narrated by: Lucy Rivers and George Allen
Series: Rugby #1

4.5 Stars - This book had me laughing during the short audio sample I listened to, which was the reason I purchased it. I was not disappointed! Annie was a witty blogger who wasn’t a fan of going outside of her comfort zone. I really liked how Ronan pushed her out of her boundaries a bit. Ronan in turn was definitely more of the aggressor and barring his constant desire to “tie her up and take her from behind” I really liked his character. I felt their chemistry increase as their relationship grew and I saw growth in both Annie and Ronan, some from their own experiences and some as a result of being together. I loved that he wanted to come to Canada and “get lost in our mountains”. Loved the emails back and forth between the SocialMediaLite and Ronan. They totally had me cracking up! And lastly, I loved that I felt the passion between these two, whether they were bickering or flirting.

There was only one downfall for me… I am not a big fan of the whole bondage/dominance scene. This book wasn’t too bad with it, as there was only like 2 short scenes.. (other than the aforementioned thoughts from Ronan) and he wasn’t out to hurt her so, that was a plus... but there was one part that Ronan was getting Annie all worked up.. then he realizes he had no protection… so instead of just doing other things that do not involve actual sex.. Or even had the author just not wrote that he forgotten protection - leaving the reader to assume whatever they wanted.. Ronan tells Annie he doesn’t have any protection, notices her concern and responds with “What? Don’t you trust me?” wtf??…. Ah… NO! This is their first time together.. Why would you even ask that! I mean, come on!!! This really bugged me, and made me lose a bit of respect for Ronan.

Other than that though, the book was quite enjoyable, I loved the accents the narrators used. It just added that perfect touch. I haven’t read these authors before but I would be happy to read more from them!

Deflated

Sad. I liked the first half of the book as it had me chuckle quite a few times and I even felt a bit of the romance between the two characters had going but only just a bit because it was slightly tainted by the over focus of the lust the couple were wrapped in instead of the heartfelt emotions for each other, The second half left me feeling duped in the end. The leading man just became unlikable for so many reasons and the leading lady became annoying with her constant whining and lack of backbone. I couldn't even finish listening to this drivel any more. Just left me feeling disappointed and deflated. I also didn't like that Annie's boss basically whored her out just to land a client and even went so far to change her wardrobe to show off more of her assets in attempt to seal the deal. That's just so wrong on so many levels.

I will not be recommending this book to anyone I know. But if you are looking for a true romance that makes you laugh, cry, smile, and feel the love then I would suggest you are better off reading The Wingman By Natasha Anders. Now that book is a winner.

Couldn't finish this

The main male character got thus creepy rapist vibe that made me very uncomfortable. i think the story had promise for being pretty good up until that point. It's just hard for me to believe that the heroine could fall in love with someone who acted like that towards her.

Sexual harassment meet cute? No thanks

The hero sexually harasses the heroine in the beginning in a way that is really quite disturbing. Did not get beyond the scene where he stops the elevator with just the 2 of them in it and touches her. Yikes.

LOVE Penny Reid....Hated This Book

What disappointed you about The Hooker and the Hermit?

This book failed to grab my attention from the beginning and was pretty boring. I strongly disliked Annie and did not feel there was much of a connection between her and Ronan.
Penny Reid is one of my favorite writers and her books always leave me wanting more, however I almost gave up on this book.

Which character – as performed by George Allen and Lucy Rivers – was your favorite?

The character of Ronan was performed very well. I very much enjoyed listening to George Allen as Ronan Fitzpatrick.

Just ok

I usually love how funny and witty Penny Reid's characters are but this book just fell short. I found it hard to like the characters. The book wasn't terrible it was just ok.

Hooked on Fitzpatrick!

It was
like fresh air reading this book. It didn't feel like other recycled stories. I had it on my kindle but hadn't had the chance to read it. So happy when I preorder it on Audible and I can say it did not disappoint. She had me at Colin Farrel look a like lol

Great book couldnt stop listening

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hooker and the Hermit to be better than the print version?

I think the audio builds the characters due to their accents - also helps with the "hash tag" entrées.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Loved Ronan and Annie - my favourite character was Annies Boss - what an intuitive lady and a nice friend

What about George Allen and Lucy Rivers ’s performance did you like?

Lucy Rivers - hats off well done. George took a little to get used to but well worth the effort

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hash Tag social misses

Any additional comments?

Loved the book a great read and entertaining story line

So amazing

This is my third book by Penny Reid, my first by LH Cosway. I have to say that I love it! I did not hesitate to get it when I saw it and knew it was by Penny, I will read anything and everything by her.
I will definitely check out more of LH Cosway.
The story had that Penny warmth, funny and lovely. The heroine reminds me a lot of Neanderthal seeks human. But differ t in a way. I love that it sets the premise for a new series of books. Can't wit to read them.

Funny sexy read

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

The h has issues. A lot of them. But during this story she developes other parts of herself, because of the H. He is just drool worthy perfect book boyfriend material. It's an easy read or hear or whatever. It's funny and I loved the characters a lot. Oh my god and the narrators are so good. The male one has an accent which is just so much more sexy than just imagine it, if you know what I mean...
