Kat Latham doesn’t disappoint with the second book in her London Legends series. And this time it’s the Legends’ and England captain Liam Callaghan’s turn to be thrown off his stride.

Once again a chance encounter leads to a captivating romance with a couple who are as frustrating as they are endearing. For very different reasons, both Liam and Tess are in the public eye and both are wounded souls. But both are real; the insecurities Tess has are the type that many women have and unfortunately they are male-induced. But whereby many heroines have that defeatist nature, Tess has retained her strong willed nature and does things for herself because she wants to and I could hug Kat Latham for creating a heroine who has fight and fire in her after all she has endured. But she’s also bloody frustrating and I could have shaken her several times for her decisions as Liam is a catch and a man whose heart is as big as his biceps. He’s sweet, dirty and a bit of an arse at times but his understanding nature and gentle way with Tess over her insecurities were sigh inducing.

I loved that rugby was more at the forefront this time bringing action and anticipation and the glossary of game terms and British-isms for non-Brit readers was a great addition (everyone should know what a banana-hammock is). I’ve been left wanting more from these boys and lucky me, I can can delve straight into Matt and Libby’s story.

From the beaches of Venezuela to the rugby pitch in London, Kat Latham took me on a romantic adventure in Playing It Close. Smoothly written at a great pace, Playing It Close had all the elements that capture me in a romance...humor, heart ache, just the right amount of conflict, hope, love, great characters, and a great feeling in my heart.

Tess and Liam both just wanted to get away...away from 'real life', the spotlight and their troubles when they head to Venezuela separately. Neither expects to find the perfect holiday romance and lose a little piece of their heart. To Tess, it can only be a holiday fling...and when she sneaks off in the night, Liam is not sure he'll ever see her again. Especially since neither of them were honest about who they really were. Rugby, London, and Tess's new job bring them unexpectedly back together again. Tess is determined to keep things professional, even if everything inside of her flares to life around Liam. Liam is determined to have more with Tess. After that brief time with her, he knows he wants more. But lies of omission can take their toll and hurt them both. Will those ruin what's just getting started?

Tess and Liam make a fantastic heroine and hero. Tess is so realistic and easy to relate to! It was easy to see her in my mind, to understand her, and feel what she felt. I liked how she carried on, even through hurt and embarrassment, after the mess of her last job. I liked how she was able to lose her inhibitions even if it was just on holiday pretending to be someone else. She did what so many women would do! I really like Liam also! I liked how he was with Tess, how they were together. He is a strong character in more ways than one...and so easy to picture in my minds eye!

I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review, which I've never done before, so I was kind of nervous I wouldn't like it.
It turns out there was no need to worry because this book is great. It's well written, with plenty of humour and heart, not just with the main characters but the supporting ones too.
It is a little contrived in places, I got the feeling I was watching a movie at times with some of the settings/situations the characters found themselves in, but I was happy to go with the flow and enjoy it. And there was plenty of 'real' moments too, where you could feel and get caught up in the emotions involved. This author can deliver a subtle punch to the heart at times, and it's a pleasure to watch the relationship develop.

Both characters had strengths and insecurities that the author works well into the story, so there's never that feeling of being bogged down by their private thoughts, and I didn't feel the need to yell "get over it" at any stage, which is a bonus in my eyes. They were both likable, and felt like a good match for each other.
I liked this book so much I've already purchased another book in the series. Also what's not to love about a rugby story based around the World Cup?

PLAYING IT CLOSE is the second instalment in Kat Latham’s contemporary, adult London Legends romance series focusing on the London Legends Rugby Team. This is team captain Liam Callaghan and Tess Chambers’s storyline. The timeline runs parallel to the first instalment Knowing the Score but very little of the premise overlaps.

Liam and Tess will meet while on vacation in Venezuela but Tess’s abrupt departure following a wild night of anonymous sex will leave Liam struggling with what has happened. Upon returning to England, Liam will discover that the company looking to back the London Legends rugby team is headed by Tess’s cousin and Tess will become part of the team’s PR. What follows is a series of misunderstandings and broken hearts when Liam believes that Tess had set him up all along. But Tess has had to endure months of humiliation following a disastrous revelation at work, and her connections with Liam will have to be kept under the radar.

The relationship between Liam and Tess begins as strangers in paradise but quickly moves to bitter exes following their reconnection. There is a definite attraction, one fueled by lust, sex and desire but betrayal and dissolution are first and foremost on Liam’s mind. The sexual tension is palpable and you know that there is only one woman on Liam’s mind. To get the girl back, Liam will learn that there is more to Tess than he could have possibly known. Tess has some major self esteem issues that drive part of her personality and her emotional fragility. Years of humiliation and a need to protect the man that she loves have led to a public breakdown that will push Liam away for the last time.

The secondary characters are colorful, believable and lend a little comic relief when necessary.
