I loved Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway individually and their books together. They write such beautifully unique couples, funny and lovely romance that you can’t help but adore. I was really excited to read the next book in their rugby (and sadly the last) while I did enjoy it, it wasn’t the love I felt for the earlier books in the series.
William Moore is the Oklahoma farm boy in the Irish rugby team, he’s quite and well liked. He’s a gentleman and compared to the rest of the team seems like the best mannered guy around. He has a secret which is him being a voyeur, something he has hidden from the public eye because of his profession.
Josey Kavanagh is still living with their parents, finding out about their financial troubles gives her push finally needed to stand on her own feet. Josey is an socially awkward, no filter from brain to mouth girl. She’s funny and lovely and now the babysitter to Will to stop his voyeuristic tendencies.
I enjoyed their friendship and you see them their development from strangers to friends to lovers and being in love. Their relationship was cute. I really liked Will, he was the one who made the book for me. He was just a nice guy that I wanted to see get his HEA.
Quibbles: Theres several things that I wished were done better….Firstly Will’s voyeurism its just never dealt with ?? It’s just a huge question mark left over after I finished the book? Its made out to this huge thing at the start of the book but by the end theres nothing ….Josey though her behaviour with Will, she would push in the friendszone as soon as they were done having sex but then she blamed him and it was just confusing because she pushed him away how was he supposed to know that she love him when her behaviour was to the contrary. I wish there was more development between them, because after they become lovers it just sort of halted.
I really wanted to love to this book, I feel like I’m in the minority though since my friend really enjoyed and loved the book so it’s more of a personal thing. The book still has that Penny Reid/LH cosway humour and uniqueness, it was just Josey made me question so many things about them as a couple.
Overall, I did enjoy the book, it has funny moments and some great scenes, the couple had great chemistry but as a whole I didn’t feel the love I usually do for the couple and duo’s book.
