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.

My Review

A Place in the Sun by R. S. Grey is a new standalone novel.

Poor Georgie. Her mom wants to keep her from dying an old maid, cat-woman, but her choices for Georgie make a mansion full of cats sounds ever so tempting.  Georgie wants love. Not the fake kind or the ordinary.  She wants genuine love that shakes her to her core.  Good lordy dordy. Luca.  He is closed-off and brooding; makes for the best kind of challenge in love. His heart has not been his own for quite some time, so meeting up with the likes of Georgie is not the challenge he is looking for in life.

“Oh my Liam Neeson. I’ve been taken.”

And with that, the first roll of laughter came out.  I just love the free-flowing humor in R. S. Grey’s books. It’s light, easy, and feel good, adding to the overall enjoyment of the book. However, this novel was filled with so much more than laugher.  As the passion ignited between Luca and Georgie is was breath-taking, enticing, and all-consuming.  Set in a beautiful country with a romantic backdrop, their story from strangers to frienemies to lovers was a great escape.

About R. S. Grey

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.
