The Fortunate Ones ~by R.S. Grey

Thank you to the author for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. 

Synopsis (from Goodreads): 

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…

James Ashwood.

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.

Review:

Ok, let’s get the embarrassing part of this review out in the open right away so we can get past the awkwardness. Deep breath, and . . .

ThisisthefirstbookofRachel’sthatI’veeverreadandIdon’tknowwhyI’vewaitedthislong.

Phew. I feel better already. And to anyone else out there who hasn’t read any of Grey’s work yet: I highly advise that you start with this book. It. Was. AWESOME! I absolutely loved Brooke’s no-BS attitude, her snarky one-liners, and her sassy sense of humor. She won me over on page 1 and I’m convinced she and I would have a blast if we ever met. (I am completely aware that she’s a fictional character and that it’s never going to happen. That’s beside the point.)

Then we add James to the mix, the unattainable, everybody-wants-him pretty boy from the club, and the spice level cranks up a notch (or seven). Obviously he’s hot and there’s major heat and attraction between James and Brooke, but there’s more than that. There’s also a highly entertaining back-and-forth of wits between these two, a banter that keeps you laughing, smirking, and on your toes with every page that’s turned.

So, it’s official: I have a new favorite author to add to my “rom-com escape” list and you should do the same if you haven’t already. ~Amber
