A full-length STANDALONE romance from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey.

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
shes merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn
t just gorgeoustall and tan from days spent in the sunhis 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.

26-year old Georgie's had it with her mom always trying to set her up with horrible guys!
That's how she finds herself in Italy now for a little holiday - and yes, to maybe find a guy on her own!
(PS - you might have already read the book about Georgie's brother - book 1 in the Summer Games series!)

Georgie's staying in this lovely little coastal town called Vernazza.
And the first guy she meets - or rather, the guy who carried her inside after she fainted - is the most beautiful guy she's ever seen.

But of course he's not a man of many words, and whenever she sees him in town, he only grunts at her. ☺
And of course he has some terrible baggage and is not yet ready for a new love.

But Georgie is not giving up. She's staying. She found friends in this town and is happily spending her days playing tourist in the area.... and she might even have an idea for a work-project that might include grumpy Gianluca...

And Gianluca?
He can't live like a hermit for the rest of his life?!
His cousin is trying his best to get him to start dating again, but Luca is just not ready...
or is he? Because this pretty english girl is on his mind a lot these days....




I just loved it.
It was cute and funny and sunny and ugh, just beautiful!
You laugh out loud, but you also cry a little with Luca.
This was the perfect romance set in a perfect location!

You just have to keep reading to find out if and when Luca finally gives up the fight and falls for Georgie. It's just too adorable to watch them!

Lots of hilarious and adorable and sexy and moving moments!
I absolutely enjoyed those reading hours with Georgie & Luca!!!

A PLACE IN THE SUN was such an adorable and funny & moving lovestory! Beautiful location with beautiful characters! Run to your nearest amazon to find out if Georgie will be Luca's second chance at a Happily Ever After!

If I had to name some things I didn't like...Hm... the cover. It's beautiful, but the girl, the way she looks at the camera like a conniving porn star. That's not really Georgie. It makes the book appear a bit cheap in my opinion.
And the whole sexy comedy part of the book. The sexy times and the comedy times do happen, but they could happen a bit more for me. It takes them forever to get together and while in the beginning I laughed out loud a lot, it got less and less towards the end.
Also, the story, title and location reminded me A LOT of the Karina Halle book RACING THE SUN!!!
BUT ... I still loved the story a LOT!!!!
