Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?

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.

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.
Thoughts on The Player and the Pixie: Oh, Sean. Sean, Sean, Sean. Sean. Sean. I didn't like you when we saw you through Ronan's eyes. You were pretty jerky. In fact, you were kinda jerky when we first got to see you here. But you grew on me. Like fungus.

You grew on Lucy, too. Also like fungus. But fungus she was attracted to. Which is a little weird, but that's life sometimes. You know. Sometimes you end up totally into the things that don't look like they should fit on the surface. Let's face it, Sean and Lucy don't look like they should fit. But they do. They really really do.

It starts with Sean not being a total douchecanoe when he catches Lucy indulging in her little problem. It gets a little deeper when Lucy doesn't mock Sean for his little problem. And when he stands up for her to Ronan...well, shoot. That was just awesome.

What I'm trying to say is that Sean ended up being a stand-up guy who had a reason for acting like a cold jerk all the time. Lucy brought out the best in him and it was GLORIOUS.
