The Summer Games: Settling the Score by RS Grey Release Blitz

Title: The Summer Games: Settling the Score
Author: R.S. Grey
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 2, 2016
As an Olympic rookie, Andie Foster has spent far more time in her cleats than between the sheets. For 21 years, her Fridaynights have consisted of blocking shots rather than taking them. But now that she’s landed in Rio, she’s ready to see for herself if the rumors about the Olympic Village are true:

The athletes are all sex-crazed maniacs…

The committee passes out condoms like candy…

The games continue long after the medals have been handed out…

As Andie walks the line between rumor and reality, she’s forced into the path of Frederick Archibald, a decorated Olympic swimmer and owner of a sexy British accent—too bad he’s unavailable in a way that “it’s complicated” doesn’t even begin to explain.
In other words: off limits.
It doesn’t matter that he has abs that could bring peace to the Middle East and a smile that makes even the Queen blush; Andie fully intends on keeping her focus on the soccer field. But the Village is small. Suffocating. Everywhere Andie goes, Freddie happens to be there—shirtless, wet from the pool, and determined to show her a whole new meaning of the phrase “international affairs”.

ZettiReview

 

Andie Foster is a soccer player for USA and upon her arrival in the Olympic village, she decides to let loose and have some fun! She goes out to a themed party where you go wearing mixed colours and have to swap items of clothing until you end up being in one colour. This had me giggling my head off because it sounds so ludicrous but it was so funny at the same time. There is so much of this humour sprinkled throughout this book that will make you cry with laughter! Andie is the kind of girl who just wants to have fun and do her best at the Olympics. She has this dream of showing the world just how much of a great soccer player she really is.

Freddie Archibald is a British swimmer who has so much charm, muscles and did I mention he’s British! Swoon! He meets Andie and sparks fly, there is just this instant attraction but there are obstacles in their way. They become friends but then it is obvious that they would like to be more than just friends. I have so much love for their banter and the easy way that they bounce off of each other.

“I needed her more than I needed my next race. The water was soothing, but Andie lit me on fire.”

They battle their attraction to each other because they can’t be together for a multitude of reasons which I can’t say otherwise it’d just spoil the book but each and every angsty moment comes with humour and swoony moments too. This book is full of steaminess, love and laughter. It is one of those books that I just adore and I’m so excited to read more from RS Grey, she’s just one of those authors I love!

Georgie is Freddie’s sister and she is so funny as well. Her way of getting things across had me in stitches at times. This is a great sports romance and full of love and hope. This sports book is addictive as well, I devoured this book in the space of a few hours!

I do thoroughly recommend this book!

5 stars!!


I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
