Advice to Incoming Freshmen

Advice to Incoming Freshmen.jpg

It’s that time of year again when newly minted high school grads don the brightly-colored lanyards and spirited school t-shirts before heading off to their new home for the next four years: college. It’s an equally exciting and nerve-wracking experience, simply because it’s new! Having survived my first year of university, I thought it might be nice if I shared some of the things I wish I knew as an incoming first-year.

The Summer Games: Out of Bounds Release Day!

Banner

Happy book birthday to The Summer Games: Out of Bounds by R.S. Grey! With the Rio Olympics less than a week away, this hot summer romance is perfect for getting you in the mood.

Synopsis:

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.
