~Kat Latham Book Blitz~Review Post & GIVEAWAY

Tempting the Player
 Book Blurb:

Book three of the London Legends

Best friends make the best lovers.

Libby Hart and Matt Ogden are perfect for each other—as friends. They’ve known each other for ages. They act as each other’s plus-ones. They even share custody of a dog. And if there’s always been a little spark between them, so what? It’s never been worth jeopardizing their friendship.

Professional rugby player Matt is fighting for a starter position with the London Legends—and that’s not the only thing he’s fighting. A crippling fear of flying means he’s struggling to get his career off the ground. He has no time for a relationship, even if Libby does make him ache. As an airline pilot, Libby’s looking for a stay-at-home husband so she can have a family without sacrificing her high-flying career. Matt’s certainly not that man.

But just because they don’t have a future together doesn’t mean they can’t have a right now. When Matt asks Libby for help overcoming his fear, they agree to take a vacation from their platonic relationship—whenever they fly together, they can have sex. It’s the perfect way to resolve all that built-up tension. As long as they can avoid getting a little too comfortable…

Initial Reaction: 
What a cute story. A tad predictable but not lacking in substance or fever.  I haven't read many London  based stories let alone know much about rugby, but I loved the dialogue & smart-ass nature of the characters interactions.

Loved the glossary it really helped keep me on track while I was reading. 

Storyline and Characters:
Matt Ogden (Oggie) the sex-pot, bench warmer, rugby player trying to live up to his family name.  He's got a few hang-ups
There's nothing like feeling inadequate especially by your loved ones.  
It was a nice switch, to have the male character be the more insecure one.  Matt and Libby's friendship, I think is one that happens a lot in "real life" just at a younger age.  
The fact that they weren't right out of high school or college made all the difference in how they processed their feelings and making life changing decisions.

Hotness on the Richter scale:
8 for greatness BABY!!!
 Oggie aims to please and 
he hits his mark
 right on the bullseye!!!

If your looking for an easy read with angst and a HEA this one should be on your TBR!
Hell the Whole SERIES should be!

Unwrapping Her perfect Match

Book Blurb:

Book 3.5 of the London Legends

’Twas a week before Christmas, and at the auction house…

At six foot one, Gwen Chambers has felt like a giant her whole life. She’s a calm, capable nurse saving lives in a busy London hospital, but healthy men give her heart palpitations. When larger-than-life rugby player “Little” John Sheldon convinces her to bid on him in his team’s fundraising auction, she discovers how pleasurable heart palpitations can be.

A rugby player was stirring, with desire no one could douse…

John has wanted Gwen since he first saw her, but when he’s injured in a match just before Christmas he suddenly needs her too. Not only can the sexy nurse help him recover, but she might be able to help him look after his daughter—a shy ten-year-old who speaks only French.

But will it be a Happy Christmas for all, and for all a good night?

From decorating the Christmas tree to ice skating at the Tower of London, Gwen helps father and daughter open up and bond with each other—and she bonds right along with them. But when John’s agent calls with a life-changing offer, Gwen has to decide how far she’s willing to go for her perfect match. Will their first Noël also be their last?

Initial Reaction: 
Damn it's already over,  I want more!!! 
I knew it was a novella, but it sucked me in.  I actualy read these out of order.  I love when an author can write a series and the books can still be read as stand-alones.  
It's not a trait all author's have but Kat obviously has mastered it. 
 I instantly fell in love with the characters and their potty mouths.  
Especially the guys on the rugby team.  

Characters and Storyline:
John  Sheldon  (Shelly) is a big Lug that has a sailors mouth and a heart of gold.  He's really a big ole teddy bear but you would never guess it by looking at him.  
Gwen becomes his next conquest as a joke, but soon he can't get her out off his mind.  Now that he's had a taste of her,  she is definitely unforgettable! 
Gwen isn't about to give him the time of day after how things ended the first time, until her lands himself in the ER. These two develop a dependent relationship under some not so ideal circumstances and it works for them. 
I love how they win reach other over with random acts of kindness not even knowing the effects it has on one another.

Hotness on the Richter Scale:
Wowza  talk about hot sex! 
9 sizzling hot flames!!!
