The Player & The Pixie by LH Cosway & Penny Reid REVIEW

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
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.

THE PLAYER
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.

THE PLAN
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.

Review

What happens when you mix a rainbow haired shoplifter and a sexy rugby player who is crap in the sack? A bloody good story, full of entertaining characters and lots of sexy times.

I love these two authors together, they work well as a team and compliment each other very well. This is the new standalone comedy romance in their Rugby series, which follows a team of Irish rugby players who find love in unexpected places.

Lucy is a free spirited, yoga loving, celebrity blogger who has moved to New York for a new start away from her mother who often makes her feel less than she deserves.

Sean is her big brother’s nemesis, his teammate and arch rival. In order to hide his insecurities and worries, he acts like a big jerk most of the time, but it’s not long before Lucy sees what lays hidden underneath.

“You have this incredible way of showing me new ways to look at things, do you know that, Lucy Fitzpatrick?”

I thought the storyline was very original and quite unique, I enjoyed seeing how together they managed to rise above the negative aura’s that were surrounding them and find happiness.

Looking forward to the next in the series, The Cad and the Co-ed

The Player and the Pixie is a standalone romantic comedy, told in dual POV

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally, I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing). By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
