How can someone so smokin’ hot be so bad in bed? I mean, Sean Cassidy is absolute rubbish. RUBBISH. He is the epitome of walking, talking false advertising and I want a refund! Plus he’s an arsehole. So… what is wrong with me that I can’t stop thinking about him?
The Pixie and the Player is a full-length, romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the second book in the Rugby Series.
Lucy Fitzpatrick doesn’t like rugby.
As the little sister of Ireland’s most infamous rugby player, Lucy can’t seem to escape the championship-sized shadow cast by her big brother, or her mother’s frequent attempts to micromanage her future. Her rainbow hair is as free-spirited as her quest for inner peace, yet overbearing expectations keep bringing her down. And when she’s down, her compulsive little problem lands her in seriously big trouble.
Sean Cassidy is a cold-hearted brute… or so he’s been told. Frequently. By everyone.
His blonde locks, baby blues, and rock hard bod make ladies the world over drool with desire. As the rugby world’s second most infamous player, he should be basking in his success. But Sean has never been content settling for second place, and his frequent confrontations with Lucy’s big brother leave him cold. And when he’s cold, his compulsive little problem lands him in the lap of Lucy Fitzpatrick.
Sean has a problem only Lucy can solve. Lucy has a problem only Sean can fix. The solution seems obvious: you scratch my back, and I’ll bail you out of jail. But when their business arrangement unexpectedly leaves Sean scorching hot and Lucy on the precipice of inner peace, can they convince the world—and Lucy’s big brother in particular—that this is the real deal?
Either way, both the Player and the Pixie are about to teach each other some pretty monumental lessons about family, life, but most importantly, love.
***I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own.***
We start out at a party, celebrating the end of the rugby season. Sean Cassidy is there, bored as usual. Lucy, his teammate’s sister is there as well, only she’s anything but boring. From her rainbow coloured hair to her petite feet, she’s anything but boring. But he hates Ronan, and Ronan hates him. And of course when the only thing you love about a person is getting their dander up, what do you do? Do the very thing to get it up…at least that’s how this whole story started…
I wasn’t sure I’d like Sean. I loved Ronan. Loved him with all my little pea-pickin’ heart. So, I was prepared to hate Sean. I wasn’t prepared for Sean though. I was so not prepared for him. I wasn’t prepared for his…yeah…I’m not going to prepare any of you for him either. I love Lucy. She’s quirky and she’s sweet and has a personality that’s larger than life. I love Sean and I think she’s perfect for him and balances in a most wonderful way. So, I’ll only leave you with that. The story is beautifully written, but then these authors write amazingly beautiful stories. Yeah…I’m not going to ruin the book for everyone, because if I keep trying to talk about it, I’ll do just that. Just suffice it to say buy the book. Read the book…or rather devour it like Sean does “street meat”…then read it again, only this time in small, savouring bites like Lucy.
