This book introduced me to Penny Reid who co wrote this book with LH Cosway. Both authors are amazing storytellers who create witty and likeable characters.
It's quite a witty story and a sweet romance but I never really felt their connection. There was something missing for me and perhaps it's because the book is a collaboration? I do like both authors and I will read their individual book releases but I'm not sure I will read their next collaboration which is another book in this series.
Annie is a hermit, she is introverted and shy. She mainly works from home and her only real friends are virtual. She is extremely intelligent and is at the top of the game in her job cleaning up the dirty public images of celebrities. In her spare time she is an anonymous celebrity blogger. She has abandonment issues but she accepts this as her lot and is happy and content with her life and is not one to moan or whine about her loneliness.
Ronan is an Irish charmer, who is spending some time in New York after a very public fracas between him and one of his Rugby League teammates. Annie is tasked with helping him shed his bad boy persona but is mortified when she realises he is someone she has recently blogged about (and taken the piss out of) and to complicate things further, she finds herself becoming his 'fake girlfriend'
Not only is Annie extremely attracted to him but she has an urge to make him happy, she sees sadness in him that she just wants to take away. Unfortunately for Ronan, she is reluctant to start something up with him due to her low self esteem.
"I wanted to kiss away his hurts...or at least make his hurts some cookies."
Ronan on the other hand recognises straight away that Annie is pretty much his dream woman and is determined to break down her barriers and prove to her that he is serious about his intentions towards her.
"The protector inside me was frowning, while the predator soaked up her discomfort with glee."

I don't want to delve further into the plot because it's best read first hand. There were so many layers to this story, the reasons why Annie was a hermit and the way Ronan chose to communicate with her via email were the two things that I loved most and lets not forget to mention the chemistry that was building and building until the anticipation was just too much to handle - when it finally happened it was perfection.
The other spectacular element in this collaboration was the humour! So many times I found myself laughing and it was such a pleasant surprise.
So in summary, quirky unique loveable characters, super hot sexy chemistry, hilarious LOL moments and a brilliant intricate story that will give you butterflies. 5 Big Stars from me.
