In Knowing the Score by Kat Latham, Caitlyn Sweeney is minding her own business one morning when she sees an elderly man collapse. Caitlyn rushes to his aid and ends up saving his life. Wanting to follow up, Caitlyn gives the paramedics her business card and the man’s grandson calls to invite her for a visit. Spencer Bailey, a rugby player for the London Legends, is extremely grateful someone was there to save his grandfather and when he sees the beautiful savior in person, he’s immediately in lust. The two set out to have a no strings attached affair before rugby season starts back up. Things get complicated and the affair turns into so much more. Both are hiding secrets that could end their relationship. Can they overcome the past before Caitlyn ‘s visa expires?
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this series in my other reviews? This is simply an amazing series. Once I start reading one of Latham ‘ s books, my world disappears and I became immersed in her stories. I even get annoyed with that pesky thing called work.
Caitlyn makes an excellent heroine. Having survived an abusive upbringing, she refuses to become a victim ever again. She is fierce, independent, stubborn, and very cautious with her heart. I love how she doesn’t even have a typical job (she is a disaster relief worker for a charity).
Spencer is definitely book boyfriend material. He is so patient with Caitlyn, gently wooing her and showing her what a good man is like. Spencer had me close to tears a couple of times with the beautiful things he said to Caitlyn.
I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys sports romances. This is a hot romantic series, with well developed characters that will leave you wanting more.

A rugby player with a scandalous past is tempted to give up his vow of celibacy to help a virgin overcome her fear of intimacy…
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.
