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 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.

If you already miss watching the Rio Olympics, have I got the book for you!

Settling the Score was an incredibly fun Olympic centered romance. It was everything I like in a sports romance. The writing was amazing, the characters fun, and it was really cool to feel like you were smack in the middle of all of the Olympic drama. Settling the Score brought a fun and sexy side to the Olympics that I hadn’t thought too much about before.

I loved Andie and Freddie. Andie was not only an accomplished athlete, but a confident woman. I loved her playful side. Freddie was a much deeper character than I expected. He had a lot to prove to Andie. I loved his backstory and how his family influenced his life. Together, they were just what you’d expect a sexy, athletic couple to be.

Andie and Freddie weren’t the only exciting characters in the story. There were a couple of athletes from Grey’s previous books that made appearances. I did feel like I was missing out on something great not knowing them before, but it didn’t bother me. It just made me more excited to go back, read their stories, and get to know them better.

Settling the Score is a story New Adult sports romance fans are sure to love. I would highly recommend it. It will get you right back in the Olympic spirit.

    1. It was pretty hot, but it’s not erotica. So I guess you could keep it by the bed, if you wanted. Thanks for stopping by on your blog hopping spree.
