Rugby, Tome 1
Synopsis: 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.
Review: I’m in love with Penny Reid. But really in love. Well, not in the true sense of the word, I have my Sweet Darling for that. But still….. A qtyle that makes me throw myself on each new release in French, because unfortunately, I still don’t speak English (Melliane, no, no, no, no, you won’t win, getting started is mission impossible!)…
But I’m going astray.
As with the previous volume, I was afraid when I saw the cover. By reading the synopsis too. Afraid of clichés, of the déjà vu that would have made her come down from the pedestal of my favourite authors (OK, it’s a novel written with four hands, but for me, it’s Penny Reid).
But the Force has been with my favorite author. It’s a sure thing. Now, a problem arises: how to detail this chronicle without spoiling? There is only one solution: let’s get to the point. Let’s synthesize.
-A hero, athletic, handsome, a bit of an asshole, but…
– An original, sexy heroine, whom we would all like to have as a friend, but….
– A well-crafted, efficient and full of surprises intrigue (and there, no “But”!).
In short, a cocktail to turn my head and make me have a great time by reading it!
And in case if you haven’t understood it yet, I’m in love with Penny Reid!
