In Playing it Close by Kat Latham, after the death of his mother, the captain of the London Legends needs a mental health break. Liam Callahan books a week at an exotic eco-friendly resort in Venezuela for some much needed R&R. What he hadn’t planned on was getting stuck in an elevator with the beautiful and sassy Tess Chambers or on having a hot one night stand with her. And he really didn’t plan on coming back to London to find out Tess’s company is now one of his team’s sponsors. Having lost her last job due to sleeping with a coworker, Tess can’t afford to loose this job by continuing their relationship but she also can’t seem to stay away from him either.
If you have read any of my previous reviews of books in this series, you pretty much know that I think it’s awesome. Latham is an excellent writer, who creates hot book boyfriends, strong sexy women who love them, and steamy love scenes. When I am reading one of her books my world disappears and time stops while I immerse myself in the riveting world of the London Legends.
Liam is a bit of a player who knows full well that women use him for his fame. When he meets Tess in Venezuela, she lies and says she doesn’t know who he is, which is extremely appealing to her. Once they meet up again in London, Liam discovers there is more to Tess than her looks. Liam realizes he has a good thing when the two of them spend hours watching and discussing rugby.
