I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

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.

From the very first pages of A Place In The Sun I knew this book was for me. I adored the snarky, quirky heroine who was so outspoken and independent. Georgie Archibald had grown tired of allowing her family, especially her mother, to continuously act matchmaker and try to set her up on dates. She decided to take her fate into her own hands and travel, keeping her mind and heart open for adventure, maybe finding Love along the way.

A spin of the globe takes Georgie to Vernazza, a seaside village in Italy that is so much a part of the story that it becomes a character and takes on a life of its own.
 “…the village was already bustling, alive with chatter. Life in Vernazza was centered around the restaurants in the heart of the village. Five of them dotted the perimeter of the square, carving out space of their own with wide-brimmed umbrellas. Tourists gathered underneath them, enjoying their lunches with enough wine and bread to last them well into the evening.”
Georgie was warned away from brooding, gorgeous widower, Gianluca, who was still heartbroken 5 years after the death of the love of his life, his wife Allie.
“He’s the kind of handsome you don’t see all that often,” her friend chimed in. “You’re safer staying away from Italian men like that, Georgie.” Maybe she was right. Maybe I should have kept my distance. But I didn’t.”
A Place In The Sun is full of humor and hope, with sweet and sassy on the side. Beautiful story, beautiful writing with amazing characters that came to life for me.  I wanted to live in this story and stay there forever.
“I knew my crush could have been chalked up to lust or it could have meant a whole lot more, but so much of it took place in my head that I couldn’t be sure what was real and what was fiction. To me, Gianluca was the sun. My days revolved around him…”

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.
