TAMING THE LEGEND

TAMING THE LEGEND                                KAT LATHAM
Posted:  June 4, 2015

Taming the Legend by Kat LathamWhen 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?
 

MY REVIEW:
     Not knowing about rugby this was a fun way to get a taste of it.  The characters were so much fun to read about.  They right away grip you and bring you into the story line and their lives.
     Ashley (Ash) Trenton (36) from England was on vacation in Barcelona, Spain when he met her.  He was 18 and with a friend of his, Alfie (Hardy) Hardwick after just signing his first professional contract.  They had saved their earnings from Legends Academy to be there for two weeks of sunshine and let’s not lie to rid Ash of his virginity before reporting to preseason training.  Going back a virgin would be death by embarrassment.
     As they sat all day for several days looking and discussing the women walking by at the beach just one space over was HER, Camila Morales (32) at the time 16.  She was there because she was out of control at home and her father thought it best to send her to an aunt to babysit for the summer.  She went from living in Montana with her mom and twin brother, Gabriel, to L.A. with her dad, to Barcelona, Spain, the thing was when she met Ash she had already given her own virginity away.  So, when she met him and he took everything slow well… A guy who thought about her feelings and wants.  There first night together was all about just kissing.  Then their two weeks were up.  They said they would keep in contact.
     Fast forward 18 years almost to the day.  It’s his retirement day and the day they won the world cup.  He was on such a high but also realizing he was missing something as he looked around at his teammates hugging girlfriends, wives, and children that he hugged a cup.
Back at the hotel partying with his team he’s seeing a woman in the corner staring at him hard he goes to investigate.  She seems familiar when he gets to her table he is stunned it is her, Camila.  He holds out his hand as he says her nickname, “Mila” she stands up hugs him.  He holds on a little to longs she pushes him away he looks aghast she rears back and cold cocks him.  Hard enough to land him on his great ass.
     This was a fun and funny book.  The characters at times were in your face.  At others I would have liked just a little more explanation but still good.  Gabriel’s story I enjoyed much more I think it just tugged at something more for me.  But this is still worth the read for sure.  I give this 4 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
