When her mother’s incessant matchmaking hits an all-time high, Georgie Archibald does what any sensible woman would do: she flees the country.
Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only plan is to lie low, gorge herself on gelato, and let the wine and waves wash her troubles away…that is until she wakes up in a bed that belongs to the most romantic-looking man she’s ever seen.
After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale.
But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart—she’s merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous—tall and tan from days spent in the sun—his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.
After first meeting Georgie Archibald in The Summer Games: Settling The Score I loved her openly honest and also hilarious don’t give a crap attitude. So when I found out that R.S. Grey had written a book just for Georgie I just knew I had to read it!
This is set a few year after The Summer Games: Settling The Score so Georgie is no longer the girl we first met, she is all grown up. The story starts with Georgie going on holiday to Italy to get away from her mothers meddling ways trying to set her up with men. Her intentions are to have an adventure of a lifetime and to hopefully find love as well. When she arrives in the village of Vernazza she meets the devastatingly handsome Gianluca.
Gianluca is by no means looking for love or any kind of friendship for that matter, he is pretty much a recluse and has no intention of changing for anyone especially not for Georgie.
But Georgie wouldn’t be herself if she wasn’t speaking her mind and telling Gianluca exactly what she thinks of him which seems to take him by surprise as most people just ignore him and leave him to it. The interaction between the 2 of them starts of tense at first but slowly builds as the book goes on. I just loved seeing how much Georgie brings Luca out of his shell and slowly back to the land of the living.
This is a sweet, light, hilarious love story that has you on tender hooks the entire time you’re reading it. A few times I could feel my heart racing in anticipation wanting to see what happens next! I highly recommend this book 4 stars from me
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 are 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.
