The Summer Games: Settling the Score by R.S. Grey……Release Day Blitz & Review

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”.
 The Summer Games: Settling the Score is definitely a perfect title for this book. Rachel does a superb job of creating a great picture of The Olympic games. Even though there are characters from Scoring Wilder in this book, it can easily be read as a standalone.
The Olympic games are set in Rio – perfect place. I really enjoyed reading about what goes on in Olympic Village and the different events that go on that most of us as spectators don’t ever see. The details that Rachel adds so much to the overall story.
I love that Rachel created characters with strength and good heads. Freddie and Andie are put into many circumstances wherein other books the female just assumes the worst and doesn’t approach the subject head on. I loved that Rachel had them handle things as adults and work them out appropriately.
I truly enjoyed this whole book. I won’t give away the plot because I feel it takes away from the overall feeling of a book when reading it any knowledge. Just know that Rachel delivers a fantastic story line with amazing characters. I look forward to reading more from her.

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.
