In Tempting the Player by Kat Latham, Libby Hart and Matt Ogden have been best friends for five years. They have even become furry parents to an adorable Chihuahua named Princess. Matt, a rugby player for the Legends Club, has a horrible panic attack while flying with his team. Finally admitting that he has a fear of flying, Matt asks Libby, an accomplished pilot for a discount airlines, to help him overcome his fear. Libby accepts and then makes a proposal that takes their friendship into relationship territory. With their careers heading in opposite directions, can they save their new relationship?
I absolutely loved this book!! I am honestly not a sports person (other than baseball) and like most Americans I really have no clue about rugby. One of the best things about this book is that Latham includes a handy glossary of terms so that even someone who knows nothing about the sport can follow Matt’s actions on the field.
The friendship between Matt and Libby really makes the whole book. They are so comfortable with each other prior to taking things further. Once they start thinking about each other as more then just friends, they both question if it’s worth it. Neither one of them wanted to loose their best friend if the relationship didn’t work out
