Book four of the London Legends
When retiring rugby star Ash Trenton considered his next career move, coaching troubled teens at his ex-girlfriend's California camp wasn't on the list. But when Camila Morales reappears after eighteen years, begging for his help, he can't say no to his first and only love.
Camila was just sixteen when Ash moved on to start his rugby career, leaving her heartbroken…and on her own to make a life-changing decision. Now she needs his help to win a tournament prize and save her camp. Relying on Ash is the last thing she wants. But while it's hard to get over being dumped for a sport, it's even harder to ignore the rush of attraction that has only gotten stronger after so many years apart.
Coaching teens is the hardest job Ash has ever had, and the task becomes personal when he begins to fall for Camila all over again. But when he is offered his dream job, will he choose the job—or the woman whose heart he already sacrificed once?
Latham's fourth London Legends sports romance (after Tempting the Player) transcends the tired tropes of arrogant sports stars and the women they annoy. After 18 years of being focused on training and winning, English rugby legend Ash Trenton is one day from leaving the sport. At his retirement party, Ash is surprised to run into his first love, who's tracked him down hoping he'll save her California summer camp for troubled youths by coaching a rugby team to victory. But Camila Morales isn't just seeking a coach; she wants to know why Ash never returned her letters or phone calls when she was in trouble. Together in California, Ash and Camila have to decide whether their unrelenting attraction is worth pursuing in light of the pain it brought them before. Other London Legends make brief cameos, but the focus is on love in the California sun and the antics of a bunch of unruly teenagers.

Loved this book!
Kat Latham has another winner on the books. Taming the Legend was heart-wrenching, yet so uplifting. I had trouble putting this book down for silly things like sleep and food. Camilla and Ash had a complex history and I'm so happy it resolved itself the way I did. Also, I loved learning more about Rugby while reading this story. Another great aspect of this book is it ties to another series. Camilla's brother Gabriel was the hero in the book One Night with Her Bachelor. I didn't get that until Molly and Josh were referenced, but it was a great tie in to that series. The writing was in depth and flowed amazingly. I can't think of a single aspect of this story that I don't like (well, except for the fact it eventually had to end). Kat Latham is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I give this story 5 stars and it is a must read.
