Synopsis: 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.
Review: I loved R.S. Grey’s “A Place in the Sun” novel and especially her hero Giancula. Yes, his abs and his sexy Italian side could only make you want to try it! But now, I found him an opponent and a good one in fact! Did I tell you about James, the new hero of The Unfortunates Ones? Besides, the girls understood that quite fast, and when he arrives at the country club, they are all trying to see him.
But here, Brooke, our heroine is the only one who does not make everything to be seen, the only one who looks from afar, but who never approaches to swoon before him. Yet she too can not help but look at him. So, when one night she closes the place she finds him alone and he asks her to sit down to talk with him, she can not help but to do that, to find out who he really is. But it will take more than that for a link to be created between them, but do they really want it?
I really had a great time with this novel! I let myself be carried away by the story and the characters that the author proposes us. In addition to that, I found it nice that the author offers us a different scheme of romance with a hero who wants something more, and a heroine who dreams of going as an au pair to teach French in another country so she doesn’t want a long relationship.
Several times my throat tightened when I saw everything that was happening and although I fully understand the behavior of the two characters, it is sad to see what they are doing to the other.
It was a very good contemporary romance!
