Publisher's Summary

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.

The Pixie and the Player is a full-length, romantic comedy novel, can be enjoyed as a standalone, and is the second book in the Rugby Series.

4 The Player and the Pixie Stars

I really enjoyed Sean and I didn’t think I would. Because in book 1 he isn’t a character you would want to read about but I loved that he was humanized in this book and that he wasn’t a total douche bag.

Lucy being that she is Ronan’s brother was interesting and her dynamic with her mother and with her brother made me see her in a different light.

I get why she does the things she does but I wanted her to get help.

I loved that Lucy was Sean’s teacher, and that he likes her just the way she is!! I lovvvvvved that part of the book so much.

Again another hit. I am really excited to read the next installment in this series.
The narration is awesome and how he changes the voices of each of them man just a little really helps keep them separate.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Loved the narrators!

Absolutely loved the narrators! George Allan and KC Sheridan were spot on on choices for Sean and Lucy. Those accents! *swoon*
I read book one in this series a couple of years ago and somehow LH Cosway and Penny Reid fell off my radar. I know, the horror! Right? When I saw that this series was available on the Romance Package, I was ecstatic that I would be able to reunite with this writing duo. The writing was just as I remembered. I laughed, I swooned, and I even cried.
I loved how it was the Hero in the story that was "inexperienced", for lack of a better word. I wasn't sure about Sean in the beginning. He was such a haughty prick that I didn't know how he would turn things around but he did. And it was the unexpected side of him that endeared him to me.
I'm eager to start The Cad and the Co-ed now. Bryan and Eilish, yikes! How will that turn out?

Sweet story, stuck through

This was a sweet story, I couldn’t stand the guy narrator voice at first, but got a little more custom to it later (mostly because I wanted to hear the story). I would much rather listen to Lucy’s narrator male voice. I cringed whenever his snotty voice came on. It was almost like Lucy was dating two different people. His voice was soo...soo...bleh. He made him sound so much more like a wealthy prick, even when your starting to like him. I did like the story line though thought it was funny at multiple points.

Sweet and Sexy and Funny too

I love this series and as I move directly onto the third (and final?) book after this one I'm not sure I'd be able to pick a favourite. The Player and the Pixie far from disappointed on all the areas that I feel make up a good love story. The cherry on top is that this story is charming and will have you laughing out loud as you enjoy the ride. Great emotional build up, informative back stories and well developed characters. I didn't love the male narrator but he grew on me. It was something about the accent (a bit too posh for my taste - but he was posh so I just sucked it up!). Regardless of that, I highly recommend this book and the series.

OMG worst male narrator!

I stopped listening several times vowing to never have to hear the male narrator again. Wow, the narrator can make all the difference.

I loved the audio too...

Another Romance Package download and I'm thinking that maybe this package will be a great opportunity to re-read some of my favourite stories.

The narrators do a fantastic job, but I'll be honest, I think the female narrator was the better of the two. Her voice is very easy to listen to and quite soothing. Her American accent wasn't fantastic (I'll laugh myself silly if I find out she's American) but her Irish accent was beautiful. I could easily listen to her narrations over and over and over again.

What to listen to next...that is the question?

Amazing narration

I was unsure about this story because I really hated Sean Cassidy! But the amazing narration kept me listening and then I was sucked into an adorable story. Definitely worth the audio version!

So Worth The Read!!!

The Player and the Pixie by LH Cosway & Penny Reid (Audio Edition)
Narrated by George Allan, KC Sheridan
Series: Rugby Book 2

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 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!

not at all what I expected

I'd been putting off reading this book by authors I like because of the things people said. What a mistake! I loved it.

3.5 Stars

Enjoyable, light easy read. Personally though, I did not warm to Sean and Lucy as much as I did with Ronin and Annie in book 1, they did not appeal to me as people and I had no compassion for them throughout. The story was well written, I loved revisiting the previous characters, the chemistry between Sean and Lucy was great at times, but I just didn't feel them. It has not however put me off reading book 3, I'll be starting it soon, I'm hoping that Bryan and Eilish's story will have me back in the zone. The narrator's didn't really work for me.

Loved this book and audiobook

How can you not love a story about a sexually inept posh male and a cleptomaniac rainbow haired girl. It's funny, angsty and us misfits are entitled to our happy ever afters too. If you aren't aware that flaws are humorous this isn't for you. Plus that male Irish accent.....drooling!

Terrible narrator

Couldn't listen to this, the male narrator sounded like Loyd Grossman and way too old for the actual book character. Don't waste your credits it's a shocker
