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 PLANWhat 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.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I refuse. I simply refuse to accept that The Varlet and the Voyeur is the last book in the Rugby series. This is just unacceptable! So, Mmes. Reid and Cosway, you better come up with some more stories for these rugby players STAT.

Will, the silent, stoic farm-boy brick house has fascinated me from the very beginning. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who was shocked by his voyeuristic side!!! Did I say shocked? Well, I actually meant intrigued… I totally loved Will, because he was a gentleman, he was also considerate and sweet, and he totally melted me with his understated sexiness. Also, lots of muscles, so yeah.

Josey was a hoot. She was a bit all over the place, but I actually liked this about her. She was charming in a quirky, hilarious-verbal-diarrhea-y kind of way and her thought process had me laughing my butt off.

I really loved how Will and Josey got to know one another, and how their relationship evolved. Their chemistry was fabulous, and their connection just made me enjoy them more.

“I had sex with Will. Not just sex. I had the best sex of my life with Will. Maybe the best sex of anyone’s life.”

Unfortunately, their main issue was lack of communication when their feelings for the other started to change, and this particular kind of issue drives me up the wall. So, that part I did not totally love, but still, they were so cute and adorable together that I could, mostly, ignore my frustration at their communication deficit and I only found myself wishing to slap some sense into them a couple of times.

The Varlet and the Voyeur also touches the topic of how the public opinion can be swayed by the media, even if what it’s out there is not true and even when refuted, things are never the same again and someone’s character can be forever blemished.

Funny, sexy, sweet and with some seriously hot sextivities, I enjoyed this story and I really can’t believe is the last one in the series. All of the books have been fantastic and will stay in my favorites-for-rereads-list, Will’s naughtiness included. Then again… these two writers could come up with some new players, yes?

Rating: 4.5 “Not accepting this is the last one” Stars
