Goodreads Synopsis:

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?

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.

Oh my goodness. L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid have done it again. They’re quickly becoming one of my favorite writing duos.

The Player and the Pixie was hilarious! How could it not be when it’s about a gorgeous, buff player (Sean) who is horrible in bed? To top that off, the woman to “teach” him how to do things right is his arch nemesis Ronan’s sister, Lucy. I don’t think Cosway and Reid could have come up with a better scenario for these two!

It wasn’t just funny, though. The Player and the Pixie had it’s sweet parts. Sean and Lucy falling for each other was so cute. Both had their insecurities and I loved how being together helped heal them. I also loved all their texts to each other. 😉

If you’re a fan of sexy New Adult romances filled with witty dialog, you need to check out the Rugby series.
