The Varlet and the Voyeur

Cover.jpgPenny Reid & LH Cosway (2018).

Résumé : He kept his salacious secret for years. But soon, everyone is going to be reading about it in their morning paper…

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.

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.

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.

La première impression que j'ai eu en découvrant Josey et Will c'est de les imaginer, lui en labrador pantouflard et elle en châton qui apprend la gravité en sautant partout autour de lui et sur lui... Bon c'est pas l'image la plus romantique qui soit mais la plus réaliste (enfin pour moi ^^).

Will est un mec posé, qui assume son penchant pour le voyeurisme. Il sait pourquoi il aime ça, d'où ça lui ai venu et comment s'y adonner quand le besoin s'en fait sentir (avec des règles strictes, des adultes consentants et aucun échange d'argent), pour lui ça relève d'une addiction dont il aimerait bien s'en passer. On peut adhérer ou pas, mais on ne pourrait pas reprocher à Will de faire n'importe quoi. Sauf que ce détail de sa vie privée va être rendu public (par une personne mal intentionnée) et il profite de l'occasion pour se faire aider avec un "compagnon de sobriété" comme collocataire. Et ce compagnon c'est Josey :)

Josey a besoin d'un logement et d'un job, faire la babysitter de Will ? Pour elle ça ne pause aucun problème, tout le monde voit Will comme bizarre, mais pour elle il est juste différent. Josey est un rayon de soleil, pas le passé elle s'est un peu éparpillée, mais être vétérinaire est vraiment sa vocation. La routine très organisée de la vie avec Will va donc l'aider à se focaliser sur son objectif. Ce qu'elle n'avait pas prévu c'est que plus elle en apprend sur Will et plus elle craque pour lui.

Je sais que je me répète à chaque fois, mais Penny Reid et LH Cosway créent des personnages atypiques, complexes, tellement intéressant. On lit ce livre sans interruption du début à la fin. Je n'ai jamais lu de romance avec une thématique sur le voyeurisme, mais j'ai l'impression qu'il ne pouvait pas mieux être abordé qu'ici : quand Will et Josey en discutent, c'est sans cliché, sans jugement. Un "must read" pour cette série !


The first impression I got when I discovered Josey and Will is to imagine them, he as a home-grown labrador and she as a kitten who learns gravity by jumping all around him and on him ... Well, it's not the most romantic picture but the most realistic (at least for me ^ ^).

Will is a laid-back guy, who assumes his penchant for voyeurism. He knows why he likes it, where it came from and how to do it when the need arises (with strict rules, consenting adults and no exchange of money), for him it's an addiction he would like to stop. We can agree or not on voyeurism, but we cannot blame Will for doing anything out of control. Except that this detail of his private life will be made public (by a malicious person) and he takes the opportunity to get help with a "sobriety companion" as a roommate. And this companion is Josey :)

Josey needs a place to live and a job, to babysit Will ? For her it's no problem, everyone sees Will as weird, but for her he is just different. Josey is a ray of sunshine, in the past she's scattered a bit, but being a veterinarian is really her dream job. The very organized routine of living with Will will help her focus on her goal. What she did not expect is that the more she learns about Will and the more she falls for him.

I know I repeat myself every time, but Penny Reid and LH Cosway create atypical characters, complex and so interesting. This book read itself without interruption from beginning to end. I have never read a romance with voyeurism, but I have the impression that it could not be better approached here : when Will and Josey discuss it, it's without cliché, without judgment.

A "must read" for this series !

Marriage of Inconvenience

MOI copy.jpg de Penny Reid (2018)

Résumé : There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson) :
1) She’s determined to make good decisions,
2) She must get married ASAP, and
3) She knows how to knit.

Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.

Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought ?

C'est terrible, je n'arrive pas à faire cette review, parce que c'est le dernier tomes des "Knitting in the City" et qu'à la fin je ne pourrais pas écrire "vivement le prochain !" T-T . Certes Penny Reid écrit d'autres séries de romans, mais les tricoteuses ont une place spéciale dans mon ptit coeur tout mou. Après avoir passé 6 tomes à couiner sur de rares moments, voilà donc l'histoire de Kat et Dan the Security Man. On les connait depuis le début et enfin, ENFIN, nous les avons tous les deux rien que pour nous.

Kat est sur le point d'hériter l'empire de ses parents et pour éviter de tomber sous le joug de Cousin Machin, il faut qu'elle se marie avec quelqu'un de confiance qui pourra remettre à sa place le-dit cousin. Evidemment, Dan accepte, il ferait tout pour Kat, non seulement parce qu'il est son ami, mais surtout qu'il serait incapable de la laisser seule dans cette situation critique (et forcément, il refuse de la voir se marier à quelqu'un d'autre, même pour de faux xD).

3 ans qu'ils se tournent autour, de près, de loin, c'est jamais le bon moment, puis il y a Vegas (le mariage d'Elisabeth et Nico) des quiproquos... Des pages de lectures frustrantes et ici nous avons enfin notre libération. Le mariage convenu dès le début va forcément crée des doutes et des questions, mais Penny nous offre des personnages complexes qui parlent et réfléchissent ensemble... Arf, je vais pas en dire trop pour pas spoiler, mais vraiment Kat et Dan sont absolument ce que l'autre a besoin et ce livre se lis sans s'arrêter.

penny reid,marriage of inconvenience

It's terrible, I can't write this review because this is the last book of "Knitting in the City" and I could not finish with "can't wait for the next one !" T-T . Of course, Penny Reid writes other novels, but the Knitters have a special place in my little softy heart. After spending 6 books squealing on rare moments, here is the story of Kat and Dan the Security Man. We've known them from the beginning and finally, FINALLY, we have them both just for us.

Kat is about to inherit the business empire of her parents and to avoid falling under the grasp of Cousin Itt, it is vital that she marries someone she trust and who will be able to put out with the said cousin. Obviously, Dan accepts, he would do anything for Kat, not only because he is her friend, but he is unable to leave her alone in this critical situation (and inevitably, he refuses to see her married to someone else, even for a fake marriage xD).

3 years they turn around each other, close or not, it's never the right time, then there is Vegas (the marriage of Elisabeth and Nico) and misunderstandings ... Pages of frustrated readings and here we finally have our release. The marriage of inconvenience at the beginning will inevitably create doubts and questions, but Penny offers us complex characters who talk and think together... Arf, I won't say too much, I don't want to spoil, but Kat and Dan are absolutely what that the other needs and you read book without stops.
