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 ...

  • Nissa | Of Pens and Pages Book Blog
    4.5 stars!Review and Excerpt at Of Pens and Pages.R.S. Grey sure can write rom-com! The Fortunate Ones is the kind of story that creeps up on you and fully puts down its roots in your heart until you're sure it would stay there, and you don't even notice it until the deed is done. That's how I felt when I finished reading this book. The story is engaging, sexy, and hilarious, and I devoured this from start to finish. Twin Oaks is an exclusive cou...

    HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY!When Austin’s most eligible bachelor, James Ashwood, saunters into her life, Brooke Davenport is struggling to find the job of her dreams that will allow her to do what she studied for and fulfill her wanderlust as opposed to being tied to a job she hates serving snooty club members.

    I have been a huge fan of RS Grey for over two years now and have read a countless number of her books. I'm shocked to say that The Fortunate Ones is unlike anything Rachel has ever written and a new favorite of mine by her! Brooke Davenport's five year plan includes traveling the world and tutoring students in the variety of languages she's fluent in. It doesn't include working as a cabana girl at Twin Oaks Country Club. With the way things are ...
  • Lacey (Booklovers For Life)
    I've been waiting for another 5 star book from R.S. Grey ever since her Summer Games series, and THIS IS IT!!! I can't even explain how much I simply loved The Fortunate Ones. I'm blown away by the heart and humor that's in this book. It's the perfect slow burn romance that I couldn't put down.Full review to come!Thanks to the author for generously providing me an ARC to review.
  • Corina☞BookTwinsReviews
    What a complex and emotional story.What I enjoyed most about this story was the fact that I could see myself in Brooke. The desire to see the world, to live, to get out of town and experience different cultures filled with wonders and unique sights.Lucky me I had nothing to hold me back.Brooke on the other hand fell in love with a guy that had very different ideas and goals for his immediate future. James 11 years older, already experienced all ...

    What a sexy, hilarious, and just all around BRILLIANT romance! RS Grey blows me away with every new release! It’s like she knows exactly what I need at that point in time. Everything from the writing, to the flow, to the character development, was just PERFECTION! If you’re a fan of a slow burn romances, then THE FORTUNATE ONES is right up your alley. Set aside a full night for this read, because you are NOT going to want to put it down for e...

    View this review and many others on: 5171 Miles Book Blog.Thanks to R.S. Grey for allowing me to be one of The Fortunate Ones who was able to read this book in advance. I’m bowing down to the master of Rom-Com!When my favorite Texan Indie author is going to release a new novel, you better believe I’m all kinds of fidgety and jittery until I have a copy in my hands. Her novels always come at the right time, after I’ve been in a reading slump...

    ★4.5 STARS★ The Fortunate Ones are the affluent who look to Twin Oaks Country Club as their personal playground. They flaunt their wealth and excess, and in a world where money reigns supreme, it’s Brooke Davenport’s job as cabana girl to meet all requests with a smile. Pampering over inflated egos is tough work when you’re as snarky as she is, but the upside is it pays the bills as she searches for her perfect position as an Au Pair. T...

    Where has this book been all my life?The Fortunate Ones has skyrocketed to one of my favorite reads of the year. It's a complete standalone with no interrconnecting characters and I think you're going to love it! TFO includes a mixture of tropes, but is mainly romantic comedy. R.S. Grey's signature one-liners are ever present in Brooke and James' story and it's truly fantastic. Brooke Davenport is going through the motions post-college and even m...

    Firstly, I call dibs on James Ashwood!!! So now, that we cleared that I can shout from the top of my lungs that I loved this book so much! It was sooo good. It was funny, cute and hot, with great characters and hilarious banters. It was a perfection in Rom Com genre. Brooke is dreamer. She always wanted to travel, to see the world and to work with kids. After she double-majored in Spanish and French she travelled a year and worked as an au pair i...
  • Jessica (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
    The Fortunate Ones is such a sweet book, such an addictive love story. The pacing is exactly what I love in my romance. There's a bit of a slow burn, it's perfectly peppered with angst and heartache and sensuality, and our heroine is STRONG. She's, at times, too stubborn and independent for her own good, but she's determined never to lose track of what she wants for the sake of any man. While the romantic in me wished she would've caved at times,...

    “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. B...
  • Alyssa | Swept Away By Books
    As always, Grey's humor is the shining star in her books, aside from the amazing romance and quirky characters. But the quick wit is what always the stand out for me. While I wasn't as big of a fan of the romance in The Fortunate Ones, the overall feel and tone of the book made up for it, and Brooke was a fantastic character. Another great instalment from a favourite author!

    *ARC kindly exchanged for an honest review*5 "James Ashwood for the win" Stars!!!!Do you ever just read a book without wanting it to end? *sigh* I couldn't get enough of this story. I knew with each tap of my finger to my kindle I was nearing the end. And as much as I wanted to take my time I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Needing to know what was going to happen and what turn this story was going to take. The Fortunate Ones brought the hum...

    You know you have enjoyed a book immensely when hours later you are still thinking of the characters and what they might be doing now. I wish I could open up my kindle app and read one or more chapters on these two, I adored them both. The story line was authentic, realistic and didn’t feel fabricated at all. It wasn’t rushed and flowed really well. The dilemma felt genuine and was handled with maturity and unpretentious outcomes. There were ...

    ➳ Rate: 5/ 5 starsI was so excited to dive into this, I've wanted a new R.S. Grey book since the last one came out ahah. I feel like I've been stalking Rachel on instagram ever since she announced that she was writing The Fortunate Ones. I really really wanted to read this baby and I'm so grateful I got to read it before it came out.I couldn't immediately start reading this because I had another arc to read before but I managed to read it in a ...

    ➦Well, my review was due today. I was so sure I wouldn't be able to post it. But then I started reading the book last night and I completely DEVOURED it.➦R.S. Grey just knows how to write a great romcom with enough steam and angst to keep you engrossed in it from cover to cover. I LOVED this hero. But then again, put a suit on it and I'll probably love it. ➦But let me tell ya, if you're into rich heroes who are NOT absolute douches, then yo...

    God. I swear R.S. Grey's novels are pure kindle crack to me. Her novels are sexy and always leave me in hysterics. It's a given. Her novels are like comfort food for me where I know the minute I start it, I can just get lost in a fantastic read with an amazing hero and a sassy, spitfire heroine who knocks him out flat and brings him to his knees! This is exactly what we got here with Brooke and James. Their chemistry was fiery and their banter ju...

  • Joy Novel Thoughts
    R.S. Grey has nailed the it again with The Fortunate Ones! It's a different kind of funny from the last couple books she released, but it is still without a doubt a five star read. Once I started I could not stop! I was reading when I should be working and hiding in the bathroom at home just to have more time alone with my book. James is the talk of the country club that Brooke works, the rumors about him remind me of how everyone talked about Re...
