Title: The Fortunate Ones
Author: R.S. Grey
Genre: Romantic Comedy
“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.”
If you are looking for a quick read that is romantic comedy, then look no further. This was a light and fluffy read for me- I think I finished it in about 3 hours.
I did like this book, mainly because it put me in the mood to do a face mask, shampoo my hair and wrap up in a cozy robe and read it, but it made me so angry at times! I know that in the end, what she did for their relationship was worth it, but it didn’t make me any less angry and annoyed. Some of the scenes were quite far fetched (NO SPOILERS- but when you get to the scene in Vegas, you will know what I am talking about), but again I read for the escape, so while it made me angry and I thought I would NEVER do what Brooke did in a million years, I was happy to finish reading it. The authors writing style was enjoyable and the whole plot was well thought out. It was funny, it was light, it is a little mature, but overall it was enjoyable!
I give this book 3.5 roasting stars and will be eager to check out what else R.S. Grey has written.
