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 is the fourth and final book in the Rugby series by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid. It can be read a standalone. I recommend reading the entire series because it is amazing! Read my review of the third book, The Cad and The Co-Ed, HERE.

I’m keeping this review short and sweet because my mind is on book hangover mode and I don’t even know what to say anymore.  Writing reviews for books by these two authors keeps getting harder and harder because every single thing they write is a smash. Just when I think I’ve already found my favorite book by them, they come out with an even more amazing story and I can’t even. They are so talented and I literally have no words!

The Varlet and The Voyeur made me grin, swoon and giggle like I’ve never done before. I got sucked into the story from the moment I opened the book—more like my kindle app but you get the point—and I couldn’t put it down since. Even after I finished it I didn’t want to put it down, I just wanted to delete my memory and experience this book all over again. There’s not a single boring or not-extraordinary moment in this book, it keeps you in a constant state of happiness and wonder because the story alone is something you’ve probably never even imagined and it is amazing how these two women came up with a romance story a hundred percent unique.

I was a little bit afraid of getting tired of all of the quirkiness in this book because sometimes authors try too hard to make a character appear original and quirky but Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway did a wonderful job at writing characters that are equal parts quirky, lovable, real and relatable. I couldn’t get enough of their witty words and weird yet hilarious actions/reactions.

Y’all better check out this book. I usually say you need to read the other books in a series because they are all wonderful but this time you can skip the previous books in the series and go straight for this one because it is my favorite and I need someone to fangirl with. I also need someone to pack their bags and travel with me to Ireland so we can find a swoony rugby player like Will (even though he’s not even Irish but whatever). So get to reading!!

*Will*

When I saw how spotless the shared living space was, I allowed my curiosity to get the better of me and peeked my head into her bathroom, Rocky dancing around my feet as I entered the space. The counters were covered in woman-products, but the marble surface and sink were free of water spots, and the glass of the shower had been wiped clean.

I glanced at Rocky. He glanced at me. Bemused, I chuckled to myself, about to turn back to the door, and that’s when I spotted it.

A dildo.

A big, Pyrex dildo.

With ridges.

In the shower.

I froze, blinked, and I stared at it, my brain sluggish. Oddly, I had to remind myself to breathe. Likely because I was . . .

I was—

I was shocked.

I shook myself, tearing my eyes from it and rubbing my chest where an odd kind of pang was spreading mild warmth up my neck.

But why was I shocked?

Why should I be surprised?

Despite my never seeing her that way, Josey was a woman and women have needs.

Don’t they?

I hadn’t grown up around women—any women. My mother died when she had my youngest brother. My grandmother died before I was born. I had no sisters. We lived on a farm, way out in BFN Oklahoma.

Girls—women—and their bodies were sacred lands of the unknown to us Moore boys.

Unbidden—completely unbidden—an image of Josey flashed through my mind’s eye. Her full lips parted, her big eyes closed, causing her thick black lashes to catch droplets of water before they dripped over her sharp cheekbones. Her head would be lolled back as shower spray melted bubbles of slippery soap, sliding down her bare skin as they dissolved. Her legs would be parted, and maybe one hand would be braced against the wall of the shower while the other moved in a steady rhythm.

Holding that huge, glass dildo.

I swallowed a sudden rush of salvia and, unable to help myself, I leaned closer to the sex toy, examining it and comparing its size against my own.

I was bigger.

But not by much.

And for some reason, this realization made me instantly hard.

Crap.

Of course I knew Josey was a woman, but until this moment, I’d never really thought of her that way. Not even the tampon-mountain drove the point home. Up until this point, she was someone I liked as a person, someone who made me laugh, who was smart and compassionate, someone around whom I felt completely comfortable. A good—no, a great companion.

She was still all of those things, except—

Except now I’ve pictured her naked.
