The Summer Games: Out of Bounds
Category : Reviews
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.
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
I love Author R.S. Grey! This book has all of the elements that makes her books great! Grey’s writing is filled with emotion, humor, and a mounting sexual tension that when relieved is satisfying to both the reader and the characters. Brie is independent, strong, and knows what she wants – to win Gold Medals in the Olympics. She’s worked hard and has no time for relationships. She is, in my experience, exactly how most children of single-parents are. Erik is close to his grandfather but estranged from his father. He has a lot riding on his shoulders and has no time for love, especially with one of the Olympians that he’s coaching. Brie and Erik are both strong-willed and clash (and spark) from the start. The secondary characters are, as always, hilarious and make the story even better. Once I started Summer Games: Out of Bounds I could not put it down. It drew me in from the first page. At his point I’ve read all of R. S. Grey’s books and can’t wait for more!
Ignore some of the bad reviews – people be tripping over stupid shit that takes them out of their comfort zone!
