Release Blitz & Review ~ The Summer Games: Out of Bounds by R.S. Grey

Title: The Summer Games: Out of Bounds
Author: R.S. Grey
Release Date: Aug 1, 2016
I despise Erik Winter.
He’s arrogant and cruel—a man I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy—and by some twisted turn of fate, he’s my new Olympic gymnastics coach.
I’ve had to contend with gruff coaches in the past, but Erik is far worse. His stern demeanor complements a body built for intimidation, and his reprimands come from a mouth so cunning, I know it could strip me of my defenses—if I let it.
Though each of us would love to be rid of the other forever, we are bound to each other by need and necessity. I’m his rising star, his best shot at proving himself to his critics. And without a coach, I have zero chance of winning gold in Rio.
The easiest way forward would be to wave a white flag and make peace with the man I’ll be sharing close quarters with for the foreseeable future, but he is intent on war.
Fine. By. Me.
If he pushes me, I’ll push back harder. If he wants to test me, to play with my head, I’ll show him just how many boundaries I’m willing to cross. Because I know it’s not a choice between winning or warring—not if you can have them both. At the end of it all, I plan on leaving Rio with gold around my neck and his icy heart in the palm of my hand.

This was one of RS Grey’s hottest reads I’ve read so far. With that said I will be in the minority that this wasn’t my favorite. I liked the book it just wasn’t my favorite.

This was an enemies to lovers story. Both Brie and Erik were stubborn loving to push the others buttons with this game of cat and mouse. There were intense emotions, fiery tempers and jealously galore with lots of HOT chemistry. I was a little shocked with the yoga scene but it did heat up my kindle.

The plot and story had me frustrated one minute to fanning myself the sexy. Brie and Erik will keep you on your toes with their back and forth sexual banter and come backs.

In the end this was a good read. I hope that Rachel expands on some of the sub-characters from this story for more stories of Rio and the Olympics. Her sports romance books are fabulous.

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.
