The Varlet and the Voyeur by Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway Review

5 Smooches

Synopsis

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.

Review

This duo never ceases to surprise me with their unique twists and delightful plots. The idea of Will being a voyeur had me overly excited to get my hands on this book and while I loved that part of it I found the story as a whole to be so much more than what I was expecting.

I fell hard for quirky Josey and her ability to make any situation slightly awkward. I laughed out loud at many of her antics and found my heartwarming to her instantly. Will’s soft heart and desire to not hurt anyone made his struggle heartbreaking and real. I ached for him and desperately wanted him to find some peace.

When these two writers get together they write wit and intensity like no other. Their stories are so unique and unpredictable and I hope that through this series is over they continue to work together again.
