Author: Cora Reilly
Genre: Sports Romance
About Only Work, No Play:
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.

“Good morning, sunshine,” Xavier said.
My head whirled toward the source of the sound. Xavier was propped up against the counter beside the espresso unit in his underwear, foaming milk.
I untangled myself from the blanket and jerked to my feet. “What time is it?”
“You woke by yourself,” I said, surprised, as I tugged my shirt back in place, wondering what kind of bird’s nest my hair created at the moment.
“You were sound asleep.”
“Waking yourself, making coffee. Does that mean you will fire me?” I teased.
“No chance in hell am I letting you go.”
My heart did that stupid lurch it had adopted only recently.
Xavier poured the milk foam into the two cups on the counter, then came over to me.
I held up my palm. “Don’t come closer. I haven’t brushed my teeth yet.”
Xavier cocked one eyebrow. “I wasn’t going to kiss you. I’m giving you coffee.”
Keeping my lips shut, I took the cup from him. I’d prefer the kiss.
Oh Evie, you big fool.
“Thanks,” I mumbled then took a deep sip, hoping it would banish the foul taste in my mouth. I could imagine what kind of undignified sight I’d provided lying on the sofa like a stranded whale; I didn’t need to make it worse by smelling like a dumpster.
“Should I write down my number now and delete it later? Since that’s your modus operandi when women spend the night?” I joked.
Xavier flashed me a grin, moving closer, too close, because his manly scent and the sight of all the muscle wreaked havoc with my body. “My usual modus operandiincludes hot sex. How about that?”
He was joking, playful and teasing, so I forced out a laugh, even if heat washed down my spine. “Sorry. This coffee is the only hot thing you’ll get.”
