Title: Only Work, No Play
Author: Cora Reilly
Genre: Sports Romance
After two years of taking care of her heartbroken father, Evie needs a new start. Leaving the States and following her sister to Australia to work as the personal assistant of rugby star Xavier – The Beast – Stevens seems like the right kind of distraction.
Tall, muscled and devilishly handsome, Xavier is the lov’ em and leav’ em kind of guy. He never forgets a girl’s name because he never bothers to remember it in the first place.
Evie soon realizes that being Xavier’s assistant is a 24/7 job; the man seems unwilling to even set an alarm for himself.
As she watches him move from one woman to the next, Evie is glad that her heart is safe from his attention. After all, she’s a far cry from the size zero models he usually takes to his bed.
But soon being around Xavier doesn’t feel like a job, and seeing him walk around his apartment half naked all the time isn’t helping either. Evie knows that giving in to her attraction will lead to heartbreak, but when Xavier starts treating her as more than just his assistant, resisting his charms seems like an impossible task.

This story was an easy read about a hot, rich, sports guy who runs from commitment, finds a girl who he never would have looked twice at and wants to make her his. Naturally, he doesn’t come to that conclusion right away. There are a lot of mean things said, hurt feelings and then feeble attempts to apologize. Nothing was really different in there in the category of sports star commit-a-phobe finally finds “the one”.
I didn’t feel a strong connection between the characters and Xavier was too obnoxious for me while Evie was quite annoying at times. The sex scenes weren’t too steamy as you would expect from a shy, nerdy girl who has never made it passed kissing. For me, it was just an ok read.
