As an Olympic rookie, Andie Foster has spent far more time in her cleats than between the sheets. For 21 years, her Friday nights 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"

Stacia says…

I am a sucker for a good sports romance and after reading Scoring Wilder, I became a big R.S. Grey fan and read every book she has out. So, of course I was dying to get my hands on Summer Games: Settling the Score and it quickly became an addictive book that I didn’t want to put down. Not to mention with the Summer Games coming up in a few weeks, this book made me feel like I was in the Olympic Village and maybe even part of one of the teams- it really got me looking forward to the upcoming Olympics and made me wonder what kind of things happen with athletes behind the scenes… scandalous.

Andie Foster is the new “it girl” for American soccer. With teammates Kinsley and Becca (from Scoring Wilder) by her side, she is beyond excited for whatever Rio has in store. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with Frederik Archibald, a swimming god with a British accent and the one guy that has the possibility to ruin everything.

“The sight of him begged a rousing “good heavens” with a polite undertone of “new pair of panties, please.” 

Against her better judgement Andie and Freddie become fast friends, but the chemistry is too much to deny. And OH is it ever– I mean some of the scenes between Andie and Freddie were SKOKIE as hell! I especially loved the dance club/masquerade scene- oh Nelly! But there are things in both of their lives that keep them from being together, no matter how bad both of them want it.

“Is it ‘The British are coming’ or ‘The British are making me come’?”

Once again R.S. wrote characters that make you feel like you are part of their lives, or at the very least want to be. I feel the extreme need to take a trip to Rio (thanks to the beautiful descriptions in this book) and to be besties with Andie, Kinsley, Becca, and of course Georgie (Freddie’s little sister) who was just hilarious. This book is a great weekend, beach, or just “whenever” read- that has just the right amount of angst and will have you laughing, swooning, and probably even leave you a little hot and bothered! Grab this one up ladies!



About R.S. Grey

​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.
