Loved it! I started reading the first book in this series a year or so ago and couldn't really get into it but I saw the blurb for this one and couldn't resist. A gorgeous rugby player who's really bad in bed? Sign me up for a good laugh. Sean Cassidy comes from a wealthy privileged Irish family. He has a bad relationship with his team captain Ronan FItzpatrick, hero of The Hooker and the Hermit and two of them are at loggerheads, especially after Sean made a move on Sean's previous girlfriend. That's how he got the nickname Sleazy Sean. Of course the truth is something different and inside Sean is just plain jealous of golden boy Ronan and desperate for approval. His family are cold and unloving, only after furthering themselves and he seeks comfort in a series of unsuccessful one-night stands. Lucy Fitzpatrick is Ronan's baby sister. She is a constant disappointment to their mother whose life mission is to see Lucy find a wealthy man to take care of her. Lucy's rebellion takes the form of quirky clothing and rainbow coloured hair. Lucy also finds her mother's constant criticism of her looks, her clothes, her friends and her job so distressing that only a few hours in her company leads her to bad behaviour. One night Lucy is at a club with her brother and his team when Sean and Ronan get into another barbed fight, she tries to engage with Sean and thinks she makes a connection, until he makes another douchey comment and blows it. When they meet again Sean uncovers Lucy's secret and decides he will get one over on Ronan but baiting him with his little sister, but somehow the two of them enjoy one another's company and strike rather an unusual blackmail style agreement. Sean was not your usual sportsman hero, he likes the good things in life and enjoys nothing more than helping his younger cousin choose clothes and accessories. Although he originally engages with Lucy just to mess with Ronan he isn't unkind or unfeeling and pretty soon he acknowledges (to himself of course) that his plans to humiliate Ronan have disappeared and he just wants to spend time with Lucy, doesn't matter what they do. He is also self aware enough to know why he lashes out and to act rationally rather than some lunatic YA/NA hero. I really liked Sean. Overall, as I said, I loved this and I will definitely be trying book one again.

The Player and the Pixie by LH Cosway & Penny Reid (Audio Edition) Narrated by George Allan, KC Sheridan Series: Rugby Book 2 5 stars - I was hesitant to read this book as I really dislike cheaters/people who sleep with someone else's spouse etc.. so when I saw this book was about “Sleazy Sean” I didn't bother with it… flash forward some months to me remembering how much I enjoyed the first book by these authors, as well as the narrators lilting accent.. and forgetting why I hadn't read this book… I downloaded it from audible. I am so glad I did! Lucy and Sean were very interesting characters. Both having issues in their lives that were difficult, yet they accepted each other and work together well. I loved that the hero needed to learn some stuff in the bedroom, and that he was willing to learn, not just an egotistical self centered player. (We don't get many of these in stories) Lucy was funny, sassy and unique. I just Loved her! Their chemistry together was awesome! I didn't want to put it down. Also for those out there who don’t like cheaters either.. This is safe for you to read. Both narrators did a wonderful job and I am looking forward to the next book in this series! ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

Sean and Lucy were an unlikely match from the beginning. Both fighting the possibilities. They learned they were like yin and yang, two parts of a whole. A great tale about following your heart instead of other's expectations. Passionate, funny, and interesting. A great series. Looking forward to the next.
