Donna Reads: The Player and the Pixie (Rugby Book 2) by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid


Sean Cassidy is a rugby player and a colossal jerk. He’s smoking hot, but he’s not a nice person. Lucy Fitzpatrick is the free-spirited sister of his teammate and arch nemesis, Ronan. Lucy has issues of her own. She grew up in her famous brother’s shadow, and she’s always felt like her mother is disappointed in her. When Sean sets his sights on Lucy, nothing good can come of it. Her hot-tempered brother will never accept them as a couple. 

I loved this book. Sean was the baddie in Book 1. He stole Ronan’s fiancée and was detestable. In Book 2, we learn what makes Sean the way he is. I love it when an awful character becomes understandable and thus likable. (This is what Denise Grover Swank should have done, but didn’t, with Blair in the second book of her wedding pact series). L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid turned the story so that you saw it from Sean’s eyes and I found myself actually disliking Ronan, the hero from the first book. I loved Sean, and Lucy was perfect for him. This story was funny and sexy and well worth the read.
