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.

Maria’s Review

➦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 you will love this guy. He is very reserved and respectful…. kinda mysterious, or something.

➦The heroine is a cabana girl at the country club and she instantly catches the eye of our hero here. These two dance around each other for a while. He is older and wants a family, while she wants to find a job abroad and do some traveling. So they know from the start their relationship is not going to last. But staying away from each other is verra verra hard.

➦I felt like the pace of the story slowed down considerably in the second half and, perhaps, I could have done with a shorter conclusion, but I loved it nonetheless! A definite recommend from me if you’re a fan of romantic comedies and “friends first” romantic tropes. 



Jenny’s Review


I absolutely adore this author and her stories!!
I’ve always throughly enjoyed her writing and her books always grip me with emotions.
Simply loved this sweet book. Hated the little break in-between but dang it I want more James & Brooke pretty pretty please.
