Settling the Score by R.S. Grey

Settling the Score

The Summer Games #1

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".

Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18

This book can also be read as a stand-alone novel :) 




Super sexy and predictable.

I didn't find myself guessing what would happen at the end. Not to spoil it for anyone, but I am sure you can guess what happens to Andie and Freddie. I guess that's just how these kind of books are though, all fairytale like with a dash and a half of drama in the middle.

The book started off super iffy, I wasn't even sure I was going to read past the sample I downloaded onto my kindle, but all too soon, the sample ended and I found myself wanting more. Even though the story was predictable, I wanted to know how the characters go to the end.

I managed to devour the 400+ page book in a day. If only I were that motivated to read my college history books. That's a story for another day and another blog.

Throughout the book, I found myself reminicing about watching the games on TV this past summer, so the timing of reading the book was perfect. I also found myself dreaming ahead to the 2020 Summer games in Tokyo.

It's a good read if you have a long flight, or if you are trapped at work with literally nothing to do.

Four stars.
