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.

L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid individually are phenomenal writers. Each of their romances are smart, unique, and utterly enjoyable. But when you put these two fantastic authors together, you get something explosive and unputdownable, which is exactly what The Varlet and the Voyeur was. It’s a sports romance, yes, but it was also so much more than that. These two authors are always able to take a romance to the next level, and if you’re looking for a story and characters who are unlike anything you’ve read before, I highly recommend this Rugby book!

Rugby player William Moore is a voyeur – but he’s trying not to be anymore. After the media exposes his kink for watching couples have sex, his career and reputation takes a hit. Now, he needs someone who can keep an eye on him and prevent him from falling into the dark hole that is voyeurism for him. Enter Josey Kavanagh – an awkward, rambly, adorable mess who is in need of housing. Their arrangement works perfectly for them: Josey will babysit Will in exchange for free rent. How could anything get complicated from that?

Will and Josey couldn’t be more different. This book is definitely falls into the opposites-attract trope. Will is a GOOD guy, despite the mess he’s in. He’s an all-American boy from Oklahoma, quiet, respectful. Josey is the kind of awkward who won’t stop talking and blurting out random facts. It’s endearing, and luckily Will thinks so too. As they become roommates and get to know each other, the attraction between them grows, but they try to keep feelings out of the equation… I’ll admit, it gets frustrating how they won’t admit their newfound love, and I just wanted them to confess their feelings. One thing that surprised me though was how SEXY this book was. Awkward Josey is a total horndog for Will, and I loved it. The steam was hot as hell, but I loved how different Josey was in bed than out of it.

I can’t recommend this book (and series) enough. I adore the writing, the characters, and the stories. I’m incredibly sad that Will and Josey will be the end of the Rugby series, but I have a little hope for some secondary characters… Honestly, I’ll be happy as long as Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway continue to write together.
