From the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Scoring Wilder, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

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

“When the flame is lit, let the games begin.”


'Settling the Score' is the first installment in R.S. Grey’s newest series entitled 'The Summer Games' and was everything I love in a good sports romance – a great mix of sweetness and sexiness with plenty of witty, funny moments and a lovely romance that made me smile and swoon. As you may know, I’m a little picky when it comes to sports romance books, but when Rachel offered me a chance to read this first book in the series I jumped o

Georgie, the Minister of Espionage, stole the show.

I really enjoyed Settling the Score which was a wee bit of a surprise, to be honest. I’m not a sporty type of person and I generally don’t go looking for New Adult stories. In this case, I could hardly pass up meeting a hunky English swimmer who also happens to be a Duke. Some Royalty have been known to participate in the Olympics but normally their place is in the equestrian events, so a swimmer was definitely a surprise. We also meet a soccer

I will let you in on a secret, I am obsessed with the Summer Olympics and one Olympian in particular. Michael Phelps, the ultimate Olympian and my obsession since 2004. His domination in the pool completely captivated me in Greece and at the age of 19 I became OBSESSED with all things Phelpsie <- that’s my pet name for him.

Imagine my surprise when I pick up one of my favorite authors books and learn that the hero is an Olympic swimmer who dominates the sport. EEEK

About the plot: Andie Foster plays in the US Women's Soccer National Team. They are going at her first Olympic Games, which take place in Rio, Brazil. She has big plans to play the best she can and win the gold medal with her team. And also have fun. Andie is fascinated by the

It's an exciting time of life for Olympic rookie, Andie Foster. She's worked tirelessly for this opportunity to be part of the Brazilian games, and as well as going for gold, she intends to soak up all fun that Rio has to offer.

What she isn't banking on is the level of distraction afforded by decorated Olympic swimmer, Frederick Archibald. The heat between them is enough to power an Olympic sized sauna and I had no end of enjoyment watching these two steam up the village. Soccer maybe Andie's g

I'm always happy to read a new book from R.S. Grey because her stories make me happy! I loved the story line in this one! Summer Games is an incredible mix of funny, super hot (like none of her other books) and a little drama and romance! If you are a fan of sports like me and you want your stories to be lightning like all R.S. Grey books then you are going to love it!
They start out as friends but the spark and tension was always there making them feel more about each other!

Andie Foster has given up a lot and worked her entire life for a chance at Olympic Gold. Now that she’s in Rio de Janerio she’ll give her all on the field and partake in the enjoyment when she’s not. She also wants to know if the stories about the Olympic village are true.

Andie Foster is a 21 yr. old woman from Vermont. She moves to L.A. to train for the Olympics. Andie is the goalkeeper for USA's women's national soccer team. She takes being an athlete seriously. She has dedicated her life to the sport she loves & had made the necessary sacrifices. This means she hardly has a social life outside of her teammates & preparing to compete on an Olympic level leaves very little time for dating. It's been months since she's bee

This was such a funny and entertaining book! Might as well give it 4 stars just because of Georgie - she's the real star of this book.

But seriously though, I adore watching Olympics, European Championships, Diamond League etc. so I was quite hyped when I started this book. I love swimming, well mostly watching since I don't have neither a pool nor a beach near my place, so it's not so surprising that I was completely invested into this story and these characters from the moment I began reading

R.S. Grey slays it again! Rachel has become one of my auto-buy authors and my favorite go to for a good Rom-Com. Looking for some serious laughs and a whole lot of sexiness? Look no further, this is your gal! Her writing is so real that you feel like you're a part of these characters lives and you can't help but get sucked in from the get go. I imagine that her female characters are a lot like Rachel herself and if so, what fun she would be to hang out with!

I want to be a part of the women's soccer team, have drinks with Andie and the rest of the girls while we ogle the oh so sexy Frederick Archibold. Will that actually happen? HELL NO.

For someone who likes sports romances, oddly enough I’m not a sports enthusiast—except when it comes to the Summer Olympics. I’m a huge fan and find myself glued to the TV for three weeks every four years. R.S. Grey is a new-to-me author, but when I heard she was writing a Rom-Com that takes place during the Summer Olympic Games I was sold.

Andie Foster is an American soccer player and Olympic rookie on the cusp of greatness. She’s been all work and no play while training for the games. Now that

Let me explain. If I'd read this a few years ago, I'd probably have enjoyed it. The problem for me is that my son swims and so swimming terminology is all I hear at home. He trains (and that's 'trains' not 'practices') in the water eight times a week and does land training (and that's 'land training' not 'working out in the gym') four times a week. So when I read about a swimmer, I expect him to feel like a swimmer. It's kind of hard to believe in a character who doesn't speak the languag

"Welcome to the games!"

So, I chose one author to read all of her books this year and R.S. Grey was the winner. After reading Settling the Score, I can finally say I did it and just in time for her next book in this series to be released in August. I'm so happy I chose her because I've loved all of her books. Some more than others, but that's just the way it is. I love her writing style and bits of humor she usually adds to each book. Settling the Score was also the perfect book to read right bef

I had a few problems with this book.

Though if I'm being completely honest, I think those issues we're mainly due to my own irrational expectation and general negative attitude throughout.



So let me start by saying that Settling the Score had an entirely different feel about it than other novels I'd read by RS Grey, and my "problems" with this read are actually evident in many NA Romances. In other words, I'm a unreasonable miserable critic with too much time and a keyboard.

And then I saw the gorgeous cover and needed it even more. Settling the Score is the first book in the brand new The Summer Games series, and I have to say, I think it might be my favorite R.S.

Sports romances are my weakness--they're like catnip to me and I can’t resist. So when I read the blurb for The Summer Games, I knew it was a must-read! I am happy to report that it totally ticked all of my boxes and left me feeling happy and swoony:

Hot, beautiful, gifted athletes?

Behind-the-scenes look into the world of sports?

On-field action as well as off?

Angst and drama?

This was a fantastic sports romance, probably one of the best ones out there. I LOVED it! It had sweetness, humour, angst and so much sexiness.

Andie, an American soccer player meets Freddie, a famous British swimming hero during the Olympics in Rio. This is Andie's first Olympics and she wants to devour every moment of it. Freddie is one of Britain's most decorated Olympic star and also a close relation to the monarch. They meet incidentally and fall instantly in lust. Freddie knows And

Overall Opinion: This was a cute, sexy and easy read. I liked it more than I expected. I didn't realize it was a spin-off or continuation of the Scoring Wilder book, which I actually enjoyed -- so that was a fun surprise to see those characters again! I really liked the side characters, and the whole Olympic scene was fun too. It not too heavy or deep, but it was enjoyable!
