From the Author
As part of my research, I spoke to a retired airline pilot and a pilot who builds his own planes. He even took me up in his plane and let me take control and practice making turns as we leveled out at 1,500 feet over the Pacific Ocean. I'm very nervous on planes, so it was terrifying!
If you want to read more about the team, here are the books in the London Legends series
1: Knowing the Score
2: Playing It Close
3: Tempting the Player
3.5: Unwrapping Her Perfect Match: A London Legends Christmas Romance
4: Taming the Legend
I hope you'll let me know what you think after you read them!

Okay, I'm not a fan of the man-whore trope, much, but Kat Latham manages to write these hunky athletes as real people who make real mistakes and have (get this!) *real emotions*! And, most of the guys in this rugby player series own up to it. I'm not quite sure how to put it. Latham doesn't write them as jerks for sleeping around. It's not "in your face" exactly.
In this installment of the London Legends series, it focuses on Matt, who has a massive self-confidence problem that tortures him on the game field (sorry, *pitch*) and even worse, it expresses itself in a dangerous fear of flying. Fortunately, his best friend is a pilot; but he's never told her in five years that he's afraid of flying. And she's well aware of his sleeping around. She wants him, but doesn't think he can ever be the man she needs him to be.
This is a wonderfully constructed romance. Strengths, weaknesses, their backgrounds mesh *prefectly*. So perfectly, I wanted a rugby ball to smack Matt on the head. Okay, to get me cheering on an athlete who sleeps around is an accomplishment. I'd have to say that about Liam, Little John, and Spenser (though he's a little different).
I highly recommend this series, even if you're not a sports fan. Latham writes people very, very well, she heightens the loves scenes with so much emotion it's jaw-dropping. This is the way to write romance. (For me, at least)
These two aren't your typical cookie cutter heroes and heroines- practically perfect in every way. They have faults, inadequacies and fears but learn to work through them without hurting one another or those they love. There are quite a few extra characters, but each is well defined and add to the story in their own way.
I am impressed by this writer. Quick wit, good timing and a great storylines. She obviously does her research so I not only got a good romance but I learned a little bit too!
Matt is real and obviously sexy but his imperfections are what made him one of my favorite heroes. I still love Liam and Bailey but Matt is my favorite!
Buy this book! You definitely won't regret it.

“...six-foot-one, sixteen-stone rugby player...with a dog named Princess...”
Friends for years, Matt and Libby know each other inside out and share custody of their dog. Devoted to the Legends but with a crippling fear of flying holding him back, Matt can no longer risk his position in the team and turns to the person he trusts most in the world for help; Libby, who happens to be an Airline Pilot and is completely oblivious to her best-friends phobia, but who loves him enough to step-up and help him overcome it. And her distraction tactics could change everything...
“What will it take for me to get you up in the air?”
“I’ll take whatever you’re willing to give me.”
With a fabulous chemistry as friends, when they cross the line it becomes combustible. Matt's vulnerabilities set him apart from the guys we have met in the previous books, and whilst Libby has the strong, independent vibe that we've seen from all the ladies (which I love), she did frustrate a little and I wanted to shake her at times. Because Matt was...oh just Matt; sexy, sweet, a little vulnerable but with a huge heart. I adored him.
“You’re the only one I want to score with.”
Fun, passionate and touching, Kat Latham has brought her readers another impressive and worthy addition to this series. The rugby angle is fresh and unrepetitive, which is often difficult to achieve when a series focuses around the same sport, and with some character crossover Tempting the Player could be read as a standalone (although personally I wouldn't recommend it simply because Knowing the Score and Playing It Close themselves are great reads). Easily one of my favourite reads of the year.
