RELEASE DAY BLITZ REVIEW: The Summer Games by R.S. Grey

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".

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.

Lia's Review

I am an Olympic wh*re. Whoa, wait. That totally came out wrong! What I meant was every two years when I'm able to sit and enjoy the Olympic games, I love them. The excitement of watching our nation compete against the best in the world. Amazing, inspiring. I simply can't get enough of watching the sport of it and the human interest pieces are my favorite. So when the opportunity arose to read a romance centered around the games, I was 100% on board. Sports + Romance = P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N

R.S. Grey took me on a helluva ride with this one. It had a wee bit of instalove, which I normally can't stand, but it kinda worked for this story. There was definitely loads of sexiness, and hot mess of a love triangle. I mean, YIKES! I was like seriously afraid for our hero and heroine. Alas, all's well that ends well. And this story has major gold medal potential as one of my favorite sports romances of the year! And even better! There's another book coming centered around the Rio games! Omg, I can't even! Bring it on!

This story was phenomenal. The characters so awesome. I honestly couldn't get enough.
