About THE FORTUNATE ONES
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.

“I missed you today,” he says, his heated gaze lingering on my body.
I step back, and he follows.
He looks like he’s cornering his prey.
“Apparently not enough to make it to dinner,” I point out icily.
“I called the restaurant and told them I’d be late. Didn’t they tell you?”
I cross my arms and glance away.
“Brooke.” He steps closer and gently lifts my chin, forcing me to look back at him. “Fight with me tomorrow.”
I narrow my eyes, angry with him for shelving this discussion so casually. To him, it doesn’t matter that I sat in that restaurant alone, looking like a fool for nearly two hours. He’s brushing off my anger, stepping closer and forcing his way past my defenses.
“I think I’d like to talk about it now.”
I catch the beginning of a smirk just before he leans in to kiss my cheek.
“Are you sure there isn’t anything you’d rather be doing right now?”
He uncrosses my arms and brings them up over his shoulders then steps closer, towering over me. My arms tighten around his neck, but still, I turn away, keeping my mouth from him. His breath hits my neck and he pulls me taut against his hard body, growing more impatient with every moment I try to resist.
“Brooke,” he whispers huskily.
My eyes flutter closed as he bends and presses a kiss to my cheek, my chin, then lower, tipping my head back so he can reach the smooth recess at the nape of my neck. I shiver and he groans, obviously aware of what his touch is doing to me.
“It would be different if his touch was hard and deep, but this thing he’s doing with feels more like torture. The light drag of his fingertips across my skin means I can’t control the goose bumps or the shiver that rolls down my spine. Every nerve ending in my body is focused on his movements, on where they might go next.”
“I’m crumbling. Because your face hurts–HURTS–to look at. Because I think you’re going to break my heart. Because there are a dozen solid reasons for why we should steer clear of one another, some of which you’ve already admitted yourself.”
“I’ve never felt this…this frenzy before, this need to get under his skin. The thought scares me and I try to push it aside, but it’s like he knows how close I am to begging him for more and wants to stoke the flame.”
Incredible. Un-put-downable. Delicious. Angst Filled. Absolutely Brilliant. The Fortunate Ones was one of my most anticipated reads of the fall and I have been waiting, dying to get my hands on this book and boy, let me tell you, this book was so worth the wait.
The Fortunate Ones is smartly written and draws you in from the very first page. The story-line is fresh and entertaining. You will be hooked on James and Brooke instantly. Their chemistry is so palpable, so delicious. The tension just oozes off the pages and will keep you begging for more. The will they/won’t they is just incredible. These two keep you on your toes and will have you guessing what will happen next. I just loved the tension, the banter and the fight. I couldn’t get enough and was totally riveted. The way these two challenged each other…UGH!! So. Freaking. Good.
R.S. Grey totally knocked it out of the park with The Fortunate Ones. From brilliant writing to entertaining characters. To hilarious moments and those that just felt like your heart was being ripped out…This book had it all. It was the perfect balance of humor, sexy good times and oh, so delicious angst. The only thing I was missing was my bag of popcorn while reading this book. That is how good it is. This story will consume you. You will be lost and swept away in the story of James and Brooke. Before you know it, you’ll be devouring the pages, flipping through them as quick as you can, but at the same time savoring each and every word.
