I have been on an Asian drama binge-watch mood lately that’s why I haven’t been reading much. If it wasn’t for an email reminding me that I signed up for this book’s tour I think I’d still be stuck in front of the computer searching for new shows to marathon. I must say, this book brought me back to reading again.
The Player and the Pixie was unique in a way that if books could be described with color, one color wouldn’t be enough, because it’s a rainbow. It might sound cheesy but this is what I felt while reading this. Every part/chapter was special, and it wasn’t like other books wherein you tend to scan some parts because they felt draggy or unnecessary to the story.
I don’t even feel right comparing this to the first book because their both good. If asked which one’s my favorite, I doubt I’d be able to answer. It’s like asking me who’s my favorite kid.
After reading the first book, the Hooker and the Hermit, I was already looking forward to reading the next one. Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway has this magic that will make you want to know where the hell are they getting these ideas from. They’re both crazy, crazy geniuses. The story wasn’t only well thought of, it was also an easy read despite of some real-life issues mentioned in this book. And did I mention how fantastic the character development was?
Sean and Lucy, despite their flaws, were very likeable and real. I can still remember hating Sean so much from the previous book that I’m amazed how this book made me turn that hate into understanding. There was even a moment I think he won me over Ronan. See? That’s how good this book is. The way they manage to mix their creativity into one amazing book leaves me in awe of these two writers.
I honestly couldn’t think of anything negative aside from the long wait for the third book. Definitely a MUST read.
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.<br
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.
