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.

***ARC Provided by the Author for an Honest Review***

Have you ever had that one friend who could be the life of the party and make everything awkward at the same time? Well I do, but she does provide great entertainment 

This is how I felt about the lead character from R.S Grey’s book A Place in the Sun. Her lead female Georgie escapes the clutches of her mother’s meddling ways by fleeing to Italy. She is looking for love and not one of the horrible blind dates her mother keeps trying to set up for her. When she arrives in Vernazza she meets Gianluca, a mysterious recluse. 

Gianluca’s story is a troubled one and although he’s content enough to set Georgie’s world and body on fire, he’s not looking for anything more. He’s lost in the past.

What I loved about this book was, although the lead characters couldn’t be any more different, their interaction together provided us readers with a hilarious story. One that you kept you enthralled right until the very end. 

I would highly recommend you getting your hands on this one.

This is a four star read for me.

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 are 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.
