When her mother’s incessant matchmaking hits an all-time high, Georgie Archibald does what any sensible woman would do: she flees the country.
Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only plan is to lie low, gorge herself on gelato, and let the wine and waves wash her troubles away…that is until she wakes up in a bed that belongs to the most romantic-looking man she’s ever seen.
After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale.
But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart—she’s merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous—tall and tan from days spent in the sun—his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.


This book!!! R.S. Grey is queen when it comes to romantic comedy and she’s definitely done it again with A Place in the Sun. She balances the comedy and the romance so perfectly. Her books are equally swoony and all kinds of hilarious and this one is no different.

If you read Settling the Score aka the first book in The Summer Games you might remember Georgie. Georgie is Freddie’s sister and in A Place in the Sun she’s ready to find true love of her own. She’s a little sick of her mom setting her up on dates and takes matters into her own hands. I loved Georgie from go. She’s a little silly, a little crazy, a ton determined and when she sets her heart on something she refuses to give up. She sets her heart on Vernazza, Italy and broody Gianluca and refuses to let go.

Gianluca has had a rough go and decides that his life as a recluse in his hometown of Vernazza is all he needs. He keeps to himself and goes about his daily tasks. It’s a lonely life, but he feels like it’s much safer than the alternative. Georgie explodes into his life and at first he doesn’t know what to make of her. He doesn’t bother to learn her name and assumes that she’ll just go away. However, her persistence starts sanding down his carefully built walls.

I loved when Georgie and Gianluca are first starting to build a friendship. You see them worm their way into each other’s lives until their days are full of each other. I felt all the feels when they were initially falling in love and when they had to figure out how to overcome their obstacles.

I LOVED watching Georgie go on adventures around the surrounding villages; her adventures made me want to jump on a plane to explore Italy as well. Her days spent in the sun made me long for the beach and summer days.

This book was perfect on the romance and perfect on the comedy. Definitely a must read!!

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 are 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.
