    1. 3 starsAlright another one that I sort of liked especially the first half. The characters were your typical blushing awkward virgin meets hot sports player. The author did a great job with the London backdrop and lingo.My huge issue with this book is something that happened around 70% (so sorry Stephanie it was so eye roll worthy) and things just went down hill from then. I am interested to read about the other characters from this series though. I heard it gets better with each book!

    2. Rugby player? Yes, please: He’s on a billboard yo. Understanding, sexy, funny and so loving with his grandfather, I loved Spencer. You meet Caitlyn when she saves Spencer’s grandfather Philip from dying on a London street. When she goes to visit him in the hospital and meets Spencer, I expected it to go a certain way. Then she bit him and things got interesting.Interesting heroine: Caitlyn is a WATSAN specialist, or as she puts it to folks, she helps build toilets in disaster stricken areas. [...]

    3. 3.5 StarsFelt this had a bit of a slow start and was beginning to think that I wouldn't like it but pushed on and everything started to change. I began to want to read about the characters and see their relationship develop and started to feel the sexual tension build between them. I had moments that I giggled and moments of full out belly laughs and then there were some darker areas when we found out about Caitlyn's childhood. I did sometimes get annoyed with Caitlyn and wished that she would j [...]

    4. Why I read it: I bought this one after multiple recommendations from trusted bloggers. When it came up in conversation again because of a special price, I dug it out of Mt. TBR.What worked for me (and what didn’t): I’m pretty happy with myself at the moment because I’ve just found a new author and she has a BACKLIST! Squeeeee! I really liked this book. The style worked for me as well so I know I will enjoy other books by this author. This is the first book in her London Legends series and [...]

    5. This was a cute book with a great voice full of humor and heat. However, it was also full of tropes. Lots and lots of tropes, and unfortunately not a single one I like.1. THE VIRGINIf you like your heroines pure as the freshly fallen snow, then you'll be fine here. While I really did love the heroine in this, reading about virgins just rubs me the wrong way. No pun intended. Also, virgin sex? There's no orgasms here. Let's be real.2. THE BIG BAD SECRETI am just not a fan of the whole you-could-f [...]

    6. I've wanted to read this book from the moment I first heard about it. Carina Press released an excerpt and that's all it took for me to know this book was going to be one I was going to enjoy. I would've been happy with a hot athlete meeting his match, a good woman, with a heart of gold. I got that and more. I got a story that had depth and gravitas. I fell in love with Caitlyn the moment I met her. She's earnest and sincere. I loved how flustered she was with Spencer's attention. It was really [...]

    7. For most of the book I just wasn’t into it. I skimmed parts.The only time I was interested was a short time in the middle when Caitlyn was in Afghanistan. The first half has them getting to know each other. She has a secret she won’t tell him. The secret caused her to be afraid of kissing and touching men. And she’s a 27-year-old virgin. He is ok with not knowing her secrets.There were three sex scenes. I skimmed them. I’m not sure what was missing. He was being gentle and slow. It felt [...]

    8. Mein erster Eindruck? WOW!!! Dieses Buch hat mich total überrascht, denn seien wir mal ehrlich, wenn man sich das Cover (ich finde es sehr schön und sexy, hier wird mir übrigens ein anderes Cover angezeigt- eigentlich ist auf dem Cover ein heißer, halbnackten Kerl) und den Klappentext ansieht, dann erwartet man heiße Kerle, Sport und viel Sex. Aber Pustekuchen, also klar kommt das alles drin vor, aber dieses Buch hat so viel mehr zu bieten, so viel mehr Tiefgang, dass ich ergriffen und gefe [...]

    9. KNOWING THE SCORE, BY KAT LATHAM (Book 1 of London Legends)Another re-read. I wasn't sure if I should review this one or not, but, after all, I did say I would review every book I read this year, and I wanted to re-read it after I recommended it to so many people (and before I read the latest one in the series).Synopsis: Caitlyn, an American work working for a disaster relief organization, moves to England for a year. After saving the life of an old man having a heart attack, she meets Spencer, [...]

    10. Kat Latham has added herself to my auto buy list with Knowing the Score. It brought all I could wish to find in a romance and is a superb start to the London Legends series.I didn't really go in with any huge expectations as Kat is a new author to me but the blurb definitely enticed. Now I'm questioning why it's taken me so long; for a start I love rugby but I'm also partial to a British based romance and I quickly found myself completely captivated by Spencer and Caitlin's story. It brought eve [...]

    11. I really liked this book, We have a girl named Caitlyn who works at the international disaster relief organization helps people around the world, However she is uneasy when it comes to men due to her past. What caitlyn does is amazing she travels but recently has been stationed in England.Then we have Spencer bailey a rugby place with one set of mind to get England world cup. The beginning starts off with a disaster happening to Spencer when he was 19 then goes on to present time. He is sweet to [...]

    12. Knowing the Score by Kat Latham is a 2013 Carina Press publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The best I can tell, this is a first novel for this author. A romance centered around a famous rugby player and an international relief organization worker seems like an unlikely pairing, but that is exactly what happens when Spencer Bailey's grandfather has a heart attack and Caitlyn steps in to do CPR. Spencer denies himself any kind of female companionship w [...]

    13. First things first, tell me you do not want to lick that cover. Okay, now tell me like you mean it. Mmm-Hmm. Thought so.Spencer Bailey is as delicious a character as that cover portrays. For. Real.Spencer never takes lovers when he's in season--he got burned bad by a groupie-turned-complainant when he was 19, and he's still a bit shell-shocked. A man doesn't "get over" an accusation of statutory rape all that easily.While on his season break, Spencer's looking for a discreet partner--preferably [...]

    14. Review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2013/08/16/I’m a huge sports romance fan, but I hadn’t read a book about a rugby player until now. I was a little worried since I know absolutely NOTHING about rugby, but I really enjoyed this debut novel from Latham.Caitlyn is an American girl working in London for a relief organization. She loves her job and despite the pesky issue of being a virgin, she has never been happier. She never thought that when she saved an older man’s life on the [...]

    15. You never know where you will meet the person you are meant to be forever, and there are many ways you can meet this person. Caitlyn and Spencer met when she stopped to help an elderly man who has collapsed. The man was Spencer’s grandfather. His grandfather is the only family Spencer has in the world and he couldn’t wait to meet the woman who breathed life back into his grandfather and to say thank you. The instant they meet Caitlyn and Spencer feel a strong connection. They both have exper [...]

    16. Here's my favourite passage and its a good indicator of why you need to read this book: It was the first time she’d seen him naked in daylight, and he was magnificent. His thighs were thick and hard, and those very interesting parts of him began perking up between them.“Hello,” he called out to her. “I’m up here.”She tore her eyes away from his groin.“I never thought I’d feel jealous of my own cock,” he muttered as he stepped into the bath.She scooted forward and made room for [...]

    17. More like 4.5 stars. I just really loved this!!! For some reason I wasn't expecting to really love this despite all the glowing reviews of it I read. I think the summary of the book just made it not seem like my kind of story? BUT IT WAS SO GREAT. Spencer is definitely one of my favorite male romance leads ever. I always assume in these types of books that if the guy is someone who does sports professionally, he's going to end up being a typical alpha male and too aggressive for my tastes, but S [...]

    18. I really liked this! Sometimes contemporary romance leaves me cold because I can't relate to it and I don't really want to relate to it (in the sense of, "the things they describe aren't things I want" not "the things they describe are stupid"), but this felt like something close to me and my life. And Spencer was great. Another problem with contemporary romances are the guys they describe just don't seem like a guy I could meet in real life. Spencer was the kind of fictional guy who gave me hop [...]

    19. I REALLY enjoyed this. Spencer is dreamy, and I liked that both his and Caitlyn's damage manifested itself in seemingly realistic ways. I did think the ending came on sort of fast, but enough had been established to that point that I could believe it. And for once, I had no objections to the epilogue.One thing though, (view spoiler)[the statutory rape accusations were REALLY confusing for this American reader, especially given Spencer's age. I'm glad the author actually spelled out what happened [...]

    20. 4.5 stars. This was so great!!!!! I mean, Spencer was dreamy to the point where you're like, guys like him don't exist in real life, BUT ACTUALLY, WHY NOT????? Caitlyn was great. It was fantastic to read a book about an older virgin heroine who isn't a complete idiot because that's usually how these go. But she's smart and driven and has accomplished so much in her life, even with all of the emotional baggage she has. Their relationship was (due to said emotional baggage) obviously a slow build, [...]

    21. I picked up this book because the story sounded interesting. Who wouldn’t want to read about a sexy-accented rugby player? The story is set in England and starts off great with Caitlyn saving a man’s life. The man turns out to be the grandfather of Spencer, rugby star/underwear model, how delish!As the grandfather recovers and invites Caitlyn to dinner with him and Spencer, a fire begins to flame between the two. After that scene, the plot starts to get a little jumpy. I wasn’t able to fol [...]

    22. Move over, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, here comes Kat Latham! Knowing the Score hooked me in the first chapter, and I couldn't stop reading. I've never read about rugby players before, but I loved getting inside scoop. (And yes, that includes the locker room, ladies. Ahem.) Spencer has a shot at making it big but has to prove he's over the scandal that nearly ruined him. Caitlyn is a humanitarian aid worker and is so devoted to her job, she's out of practice when the hunky athlete is interested in [...]

    23. I really enjoyed how Spencer was portrayed .This story was a bit different from the usual ones as the heroine doesn't Automatically fall into bed with the hero right away.At times for all of her bravery, I found Caitlyn to be immature in how sheTreated Spencer and the decisions she made about him.She broke up with Spencer without hearing his side of the story, yetShe hid a lot of her secrets until the very end. This is why I foundHer to be a hypocrite.Overall this book is better than most and I [...]

    24. I really enjoyed this story! I hadn't read a rugby sports romance before so I thought the game dynamics were well explained and interesting. Both characters were engaging and the sexual chemistry between them was evident from the start, culminating in some hot and sexy love scenes. A great start to a new series and one I'll definitely be continuing.

    25. DNF. Picked this up on a Dear Author recommendation and because I love sports romances. Boring, boring, boring. I found the heroine annoying and the "conflict" rather contrived. The hero was ok, but I found the "banter" boring and barely made it through 1/3 of the book before I decided it wasn't worth my time.

    26. What an amazing love story!! I loved how Spencer helped Caitlyn overcome her past. The patience and selflessness of Spencer was the sweetest thing ever! This book is a must read!! Please keep writing . . . you are a very gifted writer!

    27. Interesting, some situations were very engrossing and curious to read about but in some parts the story sort of dragged. The characterization was good but I think the secondary characters weren't as useful as they could.But it was nice to read this.

    28. Admittedly, it took me a bit to get fully into this one (maybe 10% or so?) and then I quite liked it. I liked how the two met -- she saved his grandfather's life, and then later visited him while he was in the hospital, thus meeting Spencer. As their story unfolded, I liked how sweet and careful Spencer was with Caitlyn. For the most part, this "yes, this is good" feeling continued for the larger part of the book and I was certain this would be a 4 star read for me.But then . . . well, things st [...]

    29. DNF @ 66% I just can't deal with this heroine! She just made no sense to me. Not my kind of romance at all!
