The Varlet and the Voyeaur by Penny Reid & LH Cosway | romantic comedy

He kept his salacious secret for years. But soon, everyone is going to be reading about it in their morning paper… 

THE VARLET (and the VOYEUR) 
William Moore is a long way from home. A farm boy from Oklahoma, he’s now the most well-respected member of the Irish rugby team. But appearances are often deceptive, and Will isn’t the clean-cut, all-American good-guy everyone imagines him to be. He’s got a secret, one that will tarnish his reputation forever. 

THE VOYEUR (and the VARLET) 
Josey Kavanagh is a self-proclaimed mess, but she’s finally get her shi…uh, act together. She’s set her sights on becoming a veterinarian, but there’s one teeny tiny road bump. Her living arrangements are coming to an abrupt end, leaving Josey homeless and in need of a job to pay her way through college. 

THE PLAN 
What he needs is a companion to keep him on the right path. 
What she needs is an apartment with free rent. 
Will is convinced Josey will make the perfect companion, since she’s brutally honest and basically ‘just one of the guys.’ Josey is convinced she can ensure Will doesn’t succumb to his voyeuristic proclivities by keeping a scrupulous eye on him. 
Except, what happens when the varlet is tempted by the voyeur, and vice-versa?! 
Perchance something very, very volatile. And vexing.

The Varlet and the Voyeur

series: Rugby

Review

I love the writing duo of Reid and Cosway and the entire Rugby series has been amazing… until now.

It actually pains me terribly to say this, but the fourth and final book of the series was my least favorite of the bunch.

Let me start with the positive: I loved Josey as the heroine of this story. She’s a hot mess express, socially awkward, and verbally filterless. You never know what she’s going to do or say next, and it’s hilarious to watch.

If you’ve read the previous three books, you know that Will is the quiet loner teammate of the rugby team and no one really knows much about him.

I have to be honest and say that even after reading the book, I don’t feel like I ever connected with him throughout the book.

I had a hard time settling into the story and I couldn’t figure out why. I enjoyed the writing and the characters (especially Josey), but the over the top exploits made it hard to love the story.

Will’s “crime” didn’t seem to fit the punishment and the whole premise of Will needing a nanny seemed thin at best.

Getting to see all of the past heroes with the women in their lives was the best part of The Varlet and the Voyeur. The big, burly men being tamed by their lovely significant others reminded me of why I enjoyed this series and kept me from being too sad about how this book played out.

I hope these ladies will co-write again because I think they are fabulous together!
