Title: The Fortunate Ones
Author: RS Grey
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Rating: 5/5 Stars
At Twin Oaks Country Club, there are the fortunate ones, and then there are the rest of us: the waiters, the caddies, the valets, and in my case, the cabana girls. Most days, I’m poolside in a pleated skirt, dishing out margaritas to tycoons and titans. It’s not exactly my dream job, but it does come with one perk…
He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.
Besides being a legacy member at the club, he’s a tech mogul and Austin’s most eligible bachelor. Oh, and those dimples? Yeah, they make my stomach dip too.
On good days, I catch his sleek Porsche winding down the tree-lined drive. On better days, I steal a glimpse of his handsome profile as we pass in the hall. And on the absolute best day, I find him alone at the bar, looking for company.
“Come have a seat.”
Those four little words set me down a path I never could have imagined. Private planes, penthouse suites, and temptations around every corner make it impossible to keep my distance. His world feels decadent and wild—but overindulgence comes with a cost. Every kiss comes with strings. Every erotic encounter is a promise I’m not ready to keep.
When I pump the brakes, he hits the gas. James doesn’t want to go slow—he wants a commitment.
And the thing about the fortunate ones?
They’re used to getting what they want.
R.S. Grey has written her way onto my favorite authors list, I’m loving these romantic comedies from her. This one had me on my toes throughout the entire book. It was a little slow to get into, but once I met Mr. James Ashwood, I couldn’t put the book down.
I loved the chemistry between Brooke and James, it wasn’t as good as the chemistry between Beau and Lauren in The Beau and the Belle but it was still fantastic. I got some Edward Cullen (Twilight) vibes from James Ashwood (stay away from me, I’m not good for you, blah blah blah) and that drove me nuts. It was a constant up and down roller coaster with these two. When I thought the plot line was getting predictable, RS Grey through me a curveball. So many plot twists!
Wonderful summer romance!
