Xavier sleeps with everyone and that is why he burns through assistants. Evie should have been actually different and not slept with him IMMEDIATELY. Establish a connection with him, challenge him, actually be different than every chick he sees. SHE WAS NOT. She sleeps with him way too soon, clings to him and wants a relationship. So why is he into her? He's not that into her actually. I felt like he got bullied into dating her because he wanted an assistant and his family liked her.
He doesn't really like her and she is a doormat to him. I mean, the guy literally bangs another girl right after her and she comes back? She is ready to date him after this behavior? Really?!!!!
Not a fan at all. I like this author usually, but this was just a mess.
There aren't enough words in the dictionary to convey my absolute adoration of Cora Reilly's work. She writes from the heart and does not pull her punches. Her writing is natural, raw, fiery, heartfelt and honest and I love every word. That is exactly what we received in Only Work, No play when Evie decides to move abroad and become resident Rugby badboy and manwhore Xavier "The Beast" Steven's personal assistant. But neither of them could have expected the explosive fireworks that would develop between them.
I absolutely loved this story so much! Reilly portrayed Evie as an honest, relatable character with very real insecurities. She and Xavier were sheer opposites at first glance but once you delved deeper, it was very apparent how well meshed these two were. In addition, she was the only person to keep him on his toes and give him the sass that brought him down to his knees. Xavier, likewise was famous for his antics on the field as well as off and always played a (badboy) part for the camera. But beyond that, like Evie, he was devoted to his family, loyal to his friends and inexperienced at love. Their lovestory was neither planned nor expected but was everything they both needed. I sighed and swooned and could not have asked for a better story. I look forward to more from this author in the future! Bravo! 5 stars! ~Ratula
Xavier is HOT, but I seriously wanted to slap him across the face at times. MEN, ugh. They just sometimes do not do well when their emotional and daily routine is interrupted. Evie definitely bring some routine and calmness to Xavier's life as his assistant, but she does not get taken for granted. She does slip and falls for the hero, but she does make him work for it.
Reilly usually writes mafia romances - so, the heroines usually take the lead of damsels in distress or victims of circumstance, but she writes about a woman not constrained to mafia societal rules for the first time and I am really impressed with her ability to develop a woman character that so many of today's modern women can related to. We have moments of insecurity and unworthiness, but we all have confidence -- we just sometimes let our doubts get the best of us. I related to Evie so much and truly love Reilly descriptions of her as a full figure woman. Well done Cora Reilly! Well done!
The first 50% was fantastic. I was so happy, I stayed up all night to finish. And then I realized I wasted my time, because the moment the book hit the halfway mark, the characters stopped being quirky and interesting. The last half was a struggle to finish. All the characters cared about was sex, and it was like they completely forgot to mention all of the things they had in common as friends. You can do both, you know. The characters didn’t have to completely change once they hooked up. I’m disappointed. I thought this was going to be one of my rereads, but it turns out this book just promised something it didn’t deliver on.
I understood Evie's insecurities, which drew me into the story even more. I liked how she had to find the strength to believe in herself before she could trust others and that makes a good story to me.
Only thing is I wish there was a little more side story about the sister because I feel like there should be to help tie in the family dynamic, but who knows maybe we'll get more in the future.
