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".

Review by: Gina 

I am never let down with a RS Grey book and The Summer Games was just as amazing as her other novels!!! I loved the setting of the book as the Summer Olympics! I don't if that how the Olympics really are, but it sounds a lot of fun and I wish I could go!!! The book is funny, sexy, engaging, frustrating (I blame Caroline) and over a lot of fun to read. It's been awhile since I've read a book with characters I really loved, along with a character that I really hated. It made for a very well rounded novel. 

I loved Andie!!! She was smart, talented, determined and a fighter. All great qualities in a heroine. And Freddie...who can resist an Englishman!!! He was sweet, caring, passionate with just a little bit of edge to him. Then there is Georgie...I love that girl!!!! She was funny and told it like it was. She should have her own book, that would be amazing!!! It's been awhile since I've read a character that I truly detested and that would be Caroline. She was just so fake and manipulative and I was happy to read that in the end, everyone saw her for what she truly was, a very malicious person.

Overall, I loved this books. It was fun that the story was based around the Olympics. The story was very well written with a few twists and turns with great characters that were fun and engaging to read about. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

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.
