Cover reveal for Playing It Close – & giveaway!

Playing It Close by Kat Latham

I’m so excited, you guys. Today I get to share with you not only the cover of my second London Legends novel but also the back cover copy so you know what the story’s actually about! Yes, it’s more than a man with awesome abs and perky nipples.

Playing It Close is particularly close to my heart. I wrote most of it when I was pregnant, and I was determined to finish it before Doodle Bug arrived. It was like racing my own baby to the finish line. I lost the race (but won the magnificent prize of Doodle Bug).

So here it is! The cover! In a puzzle!

I’m giving you a chance to win an advance copy of Playing It Close. See below for details.

Playing It Close

Book two of the London Legends

Where do you go to escape everything when you’re one of the most famous rugby players in the world? For Liam Callaghan, that place is a remote lodge on Venezuela’s Caribbean coast. Perfect, except he doesn’t exactly want to be alone with his thoughts. Enter Tess Chambers, the ultimate distraction.

Still reeling from a professional disaster that’s made her all but unemployable, Tess understands the desire to move through life as somebody else. So when instantly recognizable Liam uses a fake name, she runs with it and creates a temporary new identity of her own.

Their time spent together in paradise is idyllic but briefβ€”after one passionate night, Liam wakes up to find Tess gone. Returning to London, he’s shocked to learn she’s taken a job with his team’s new sponsor. As the Legends’ captain, he’ll have to not only figure out how to work with the one woman who ever left him wanting more, but also convince her that their feelings in the present mean more than any lies they’ve told in the past. | | Barnes & Noble | Google Play | iBooks | Goodreads

  1. Kat, I loved this post and the puzzle. It didn’t take very long to solve the puzzle at all. This book sounds like a must read.

  2. Love it !!!!! I absolutely love the puzzle reveals~ πŸ˜€

    And it’s different from Keeping The Score~ well kind of. LOL

  3. Love the cover and the book sound fantastic! I can’t wait to read it. I am entering under the name of Virginia

  4. That was fun. A little break from the mindless day job. The book sounds great and the cover is yummy – looking forward to reading it.

  5. If I saw this book in the store, I would pick it up to look at since the cover intrigues me. It also gives me a hint of what the book is about. . I like it

  6. I love the cover. Those greens are fantastic. Just so you know you’ve described Liam as a blond. Your hot rugby dude is a brunette. :p

    1. Good observation! I realized that too after I read the first Chapter from the most recent newsletter post but you beat me to it πŸ™‚
      Maybe he’s meant to be just a Generic hot rugby dude.

    2. I know, Chanpreet. He also doesn’t have long hair. We can imagine this is Liam from the neck down. Or he grew and dyed his hair for a bet. πŸ˜‰

  7. Being blessed with only sons and only have 1 granddaughter (along with 4 grandsons) I learned to love sports long ago! I also have 4 nephews as well as 5 cousins – all boys and between them all and the sports they’ve played have come to appreciate the hard work it dedication and work it takes.

    Out of all of them (plus my own father and all my uncles) only one of all of them has played Rugby but I think it’s the one game I’ve enjoyed watching being played because every moment is filled with action!

    I can’t wait to read Playing It Close!

    1. Oh, how funny! I wrote Playing It Close when my brother was dating a woman from Venezuela (they’re now married and expecting a baby), so Venezuela was on my mind! I knew I couldn’t go there anytime soon, so researching it was second best. πŸ™‚
