Average score: 4.5/5

Best Lines: so many good ones that I can’t just pick one

H to h: You are singular to me, exceptional. You’re brilliant and adorable and so fucking real. I care about you.

Worst Lines: none! (apart from the things Ronan’s mum said to Annie at their first meeting)

Personal Review:

This was a brilliant love story between a hot, vulnerable, sarcastic rugby player and a sweet, witty, vulnerable hermit (who is also a famous anonymous blogger).

Random Ramblings:

  • Ronan’s mother surprised me because she was not at all like Ronan described
  • Loved the banter between Annie, Ronan and Socialmedialite

  • This would have been a great love story even without the added BDSM elements
  • Extra points for the creative book cover – loved it!
