    About The Varlet & Voyeur

    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 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.

    Review

    What an absolute sweet read! I’ve read the second book in this series and remember how hilarious the heroines were. And Josey was just that in her chatty and quirky way. She’s a friend that I would just love to have.

    Something that I need to do ASAP is read one of L.H. Cosway’s books. I’m a huge of fan of Penny Reid’s work, so it was easy to pick out her awesome humor.

    Josey! To read a book with such a relatable and solid heroine. She’s completely honest and I love her constant chatter. And a woman who is 100% comfortable with her sexuality and knows exactly what she wants. Bravo, we all need a Josey in our lives.

    William was such a unique character to me. I can’t say that I’ve read a romantic comedy with the added topic of voyeurism. Everyone has their preferences and I pass no judgment whatsoever. I, so, so, so appreciated that Reid and Cosway made it known that it was all concensual (like it should be) between all parties involved. But whether people agreed with it or not, it’s not everyone’s preferences.

    Along with Josey, I was completely in love with William. Truly a stand up dude and his personal take on relationships and porn (yes, you read that right) was so damn refreshing and honest.

    Everything about these two made them so relatable. With Joey’s hilarious inner dialogue and banter between the both of them, it brings you plenty of laughs. And more of those mushy feels that everyone loves so much.

    I forever love this writing duo and I hope they have more books planned for the future! It’s been a while where I’ve read a solid friends with benefits trope that didn’t seem redundant. And this one just puts all others to shame.

    Highly recommend!

    P. S. There is no voyeurism going on in this book. It was the hero’s preference, but no longer does it.

    Excerpt

    *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.
