ARC Review: The Varlet and the Voyeur (Rugby #4) by by L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid

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 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.

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.

 

Disclaimer: I was provided with an eARC by the Authors in exchange for an honest review. However, all the thoughts, feelings and opinions expressed in this review are my own.

With every new book by the Shark Overlord; my expectations keep growing and I have adored this Rugby Series; a collaboration between another favourite author, L.H. Cosway & The Overlord – and I dived into this last installment (SOBS) to this series with all the enthusiasm of a squirrel finding a treasure trove of nuts.

In The Varlet & The Voyeur, We have Josey Kavanaugh; a quirky unfiltered and definitely no impulse control – she has been floundering in her life until now. Until she have finally gotten on track career wise; that’s when her parents decide to pull the rug from beneath her feet – by selling their home (oh, yes, she still lives with her parents. Did I forget to mention that?).

On the other hand, we have William Moore, a clean cut All – American transplant to the Irish Rugby team, who is now mired in the scandal – where his personal life and preferences (yes, sexually!) is now the subject of gossip.

Josey and William couldn’t be any more different to each other, if they had actually tried. Where Josey is talkative; William is silent. Where Josey is impulsive; William is cautious. Where Josey is unfiltered, Williams takes eons to think before he speaks. Where Josey is open, everything she feels is there for everyone to see (& judge!), William is stoic and a closed book.

Yet somehow they actually work together like pieces of a puzzle – I adored Josey, she has to be my favourite in this book and while I definitely delighted in their interactions and them as a couple together – I didn’t actually fall in love with them.

What I definitely enjoyed was the cameos of the previous couples in the book – it was amazing to see them for one last time; kinda like a last hurrah. While The Voyeur & The Varlet hasn’t been my favourite instalment of this series, I definitely enjoyed it – and I can’t wait for a re – read!
