Austin Macaskill is the lead singer of The Langoliers, the hottest band in town. When he meets Hailey Travers, an upcoming artist, they experience what is called Insta-hate.  Anyone who sees them together would think they were complete opposites but when they meet online anonymously and exchange secrets, a forever kind of friendship is born.
What happens when Austin discovers that his anonymous friend who knows all his secrets is Hailey and Hailey discovers the same?  Will they allow their prejudices and fear to rule their actions and decide the fate of their relationship or will they take a risk and trust?

"come to know in the biblical sense" - I'm not sure it's adding to your character as much as tripping up the reader. How about "bedded"?
Is the last name a small allusion to Oscar Wilde by chance or just coincidence?
I understand "thou" is slang, but it is also a real word that hung me up. I was thinking you meant "sous" until I realized you said "The Met," indicating NY.  Perhaps spell out "thousand."
