Ronan Fitzpatrick is an Irish rugby player (his position is the hooker). His image is in need of repair. He’s been sent to America to take some time off; he’s been suspended for putting one of his teammates in the hospital after the teammate slept with his girlfriend. Annie Catrel is a New Yorker, and an introvert who works for a public relations firm from home. She’s a social media genius who visits the office infrequently. Annie is also a secret celebrity blogger, blogging as the Socialmedialite, a wildly popular and humorous online presence. Only while anonymous does Annie feel free enough to be herself. Ronan’s team sends him to the public relations firm to work on his image, and one of the firm’s ideas is to build him a positive online profile. While there, he bumps into Annie and is immediately interested in her. Annie is horrified when her boss pairs her up to work with Ronan. 

This was a good story about a guy who knew nothing about social media and a woman who knew too much. Annie spent so much time online her face-to-face social interactions were practically non-existent. There are reasons why Annie is the way she is, and her history is heartbreaking. Ronan was pretty patient with her. The back and forth between these two was the best part of the book. Ronan had a dirty mouth and delighted in making Annie blush. He continually pushed her out of her comfort zone while she spent a lot of time pushing him away. When she was in danger of losing him, she was forced to find a unique way to resolve their conflict.
