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 getting 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.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

In Review My Thoughts

I’m fully convinced anything Penny Reid writes is absolute gold. I’ve still yet to read one of L.H. Cosway’s solo efforts — I do own tons of them, I just need to make the time to read — but I echo my earlier sentiments in relation to the books they co-author. I’ve loved each and every one of the Rugby books so far and The Varlet and the Voyeur was no exception. It was funny, sexy and gave me plenty of the feels I want when I read.

I can’t even lie, I freaking loved Josey. I want to be friends with her in real life. She was (at times, unintentionally) hilarious and awkward and absolutely amazing. She was so very relatable in so many ways. I also liked how she owned her sexuality. More of this, please. Will was pretty much fantastic in his own right, too. Swoons for days with this guy. I wasn’t sure I’d be totally onboard with him because, well, the voyeurism thing is a bit of a turnoff for me. BUT, there was so much more to Will than this sexual preference. I couldn’t have been more wrong about him.

Josey and Will’s friends with benefits to more romance totally worked for me. I loved getting to know each character and spending time inside their heads made the story that much richer. I especially enjoyed getting to know more about Will, who was pretty closed off and secretive. Seeing him open up to Josey made me happy. Their banter was top notch, their chemistry intense, their journey not without bumps — which made it realistic, and their connection solid. I loved every little thing about this book.

FAVORITE QUOTES

Was I somehow defective, or did everyone get anxious in social situations? And if everyone did, how come my resultant verbal dysentery was so pronounced? Did I have some sort of vociferous diarrhea gene whereas others had vociferous constipation?

“You are a sexy male! I mean, you’re just very man-like. And sexy. You’re definitely a man, but you’re also a very… sexy man. Who is very male.”

“Are you interested in ordinary sex?
“No, I’m interested in extraordinary sex. With you.”

My brain parts were still a bit of a jumble, but my lady parts couldn’t wait.

“You’re not nobody. You’re everything to me.”
