Overview


Book one of the London Legends

Rugby player Spencer Bailey is determined to win a spot on England's World Cup team. But with a month break before the selectors start watching him, he's eager to have fun with a woman who knows the score: the relationship will end when rugby season begins. The lovely American Caitlyn Sweeney seems perfect for the role of temporary lover, since her visa will run out soon anyway.

Caitlyn works for an international disaster relief organization and can handle the world's worst crises, but she flinches from her own. Her past has left her with a fear of intimacy so deep that she has trouble getting close to anyone—until she meets sexy Spencer. His hot body and easygoing nature are too much for even her to resist.

Neither Caitlyn nor Spencer expects to fall hard for each other. But with their relationship deadline approaching, the old rules of the game seem less important than before…until past secrets surface, challenging everything they thought they knew about each other.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Caitlyn Sweeney passes by an elderly gentleman in the throes of a heart attack on a London sidewalk. As luck would have it, her training as an international emergency aid worker has prepared her for just this kind of thing. Grateful for saving his life, Philip introduces Caitlyn to his grandson Spencer, a hunk of man who is well known throughout London for being not only a tough rugby player but also as the feature in a sexy underwear billboard ad. As an American, Caitlyn knows nothing about rugby, let alone Spencer. What she does know is that despite the attraction, she can’t allow herself to get too close. Spencer is willing to take it slow, which means that his feelings for Caitlyn go beyond the usual superficial relationships he has always known. With his coddling, Caitlyn slowly overcomes her fears of intimacy, but a secret from Spencer’s past may keep Caitlyn from ever fully trusting him with her heart.

Verdict A curvy girl with emotional baggage paired with a playboy who has a sordid past is a well-worn motif, but Latham keeps her debut fresh, with characters whose unique careers play a role in their relationship, and the romance runs at a strong pace. Readers will be eager for the next series offering, Playing It Close, which is set for release in April 2014.—Kara Kohn, Plainfield P.L. Dist., IL

    Loved this story

    I loved this story. It was interesting and had some very inovative ideas. I really loved the grandfather and the task he sent the couple on. Ms. Latham did a great job developing the characters. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. I can't say enough about this story and highly recommend it.
