Title: The Fortunate Ones
Author: R.S. Grey

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.


Brooke works as a cabana girl with her sister a ritzy country club. She is surrounded by snobby people every day, and one of them seems to get under her skin very easy, James Ashwood. 

James and Brooke start off their relationship in a very strange way, they have an age gap that didn't seem like a big deal to me, but to them it seemed like a huge thing. I didn't understand that, and I really didn't feel connected to either characters. 

I think I tried to like this book, but overall it just wasn't for me, and I didn't like it. I just couldn't deal with the either of the characters. The side characters seemed more interest and had more depth than the main characters. 

So, overall this book just wasn't for me.
