Let’s be honest. Who here knew what a “varlet” was before Penny Reid and LH Cosway produced this book? Anyone? Me, I had to Google it. Twice. Because I couldn’t wrap my head around it, and couldn’t quite figure out who the varlet was in this book, and who the voyeur was.
Thankfully, the wonderful authors and their publicist were generous enough to grant me an ARC of their latest collaborative effort. This being my 4th rugby series book (yes, I’ve read them all), I kinda knew what I was getting into. But, then, Cosway and Reid never fail to surprise me. You see, William, the book hero, was a varlet AND a voyeur, at the same time. He wasn’t THAT bad, actually. What he’s done, for which he was publicly vilified, was private, personal, and quite embarrassing. He didn’t hurt anyone, and no one was physically hurt by him. It was an inopportune time and a blatant lie that dragged and slugged his name in mud. Nevertheless, he came out smelling like roses to me, while I read his story.
His female counterpart, Josey…… she took a bit of getting used to. The way her bestie’s husband described her, when she unexpectedly plopped into their home (while they were still getting used to their newborn baby), made me cringe. ‘Coz she sounded like a nightmare. William made her sound normal, though—– he, in fact, made her shine. To him, she could do no wrong. And, THAT, ladies, is the essence of why Cosway and Reid are a winning team. They made this cynic believe that everyone’s quirks and inanities could be attractive to someone else. That romance is not dead, dammit. And, yet again, I find myself on tenterhooks just waiting for what else they’re gonna come up with next.
The Varlet and the Voyeur, an all-new standalone in the USA Today bestselling Rugby Series from Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway is LIVE!
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)
Joesy 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 Joesy homeless and in need of a job to pay her way through college.
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 Joesy will make the perfect companion, since she’s brutally honest and basically ‘just one of the guys.’ Joesy 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 a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the 4th(and last) book in the USA TODAY bestselling Rugby Series.
