When your life is a hot mess at twenty, it’s cute. At twenty-seven…well, not so much.
It’s just that my lofty dreams—making it as a real estate agent, paying rent on time, showering daily—have stayed just that: dreams. Oh, and love? I’ve decided love might be a little ambitious for me at the moment. Instead, I’ve settled for the two guys who will never leave me: Ben & Jerry.
That is, until Dr. Adam Foxe takes up residence as the town’s new vet.
With his strong jaw, easy confidence, and form-fitting scrubs, it’s not long before every housewife in Hamilton is dragging neglected tomcats in for weekly checkups.
Like everyone else, I’m intrigued. Even after I spoil my chance at a good first impression, he still offers me a proposition I can’t refuse: play his girlfriend at a family function and he’ll hire me as his real estate agent. Welcome to love in the 21st century.
It’s too bad I underestimated Adam’s irresistible charm and the undeniable attraction that burns between us. The day he pins me to the wall and silences me with a kiss, the line between reality and ruse begins to blur. Every teasing touch brings me to my knees. Every kiss promises more.
It looks like my hot mess of a life is about to get a little hotter.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
I wasn't sure what to expect going into The Foxe & the Hound because I saw R.S. Grey so I knew it was going to be funny, and sweet and sexy. But those three words don't even scratch the surface of I got with this book. Snark, sexiness and sarcasm were out in full force but so was the humor and heart.
I adored Madeline and her quirks. She owned them all- from her clunky car to independence and her monster of a puppy, Mouse. That adorable and energetic pooch brought her face to mud with the broody (and rightfully so) and super sexy Adam. Turns out Adam is the new vet in town and Mouse's doctor. Throw in a small town and it's a recipe for more run-in than either of them want.
However, when both Adam and Madeline find themselves in a bind, they turn to each other for a way out. Cue the random hilarity. And the steam. Because while there was no denying the attraction, there was a lot of denial when it came to the feelings they developed. But for all her sass and bravado, Madeline is vulnerable and terrified of being hurt. All it took was an ill-timed and unwanted blast from the past to throw her budding relationship with Adam off track.
I can't even begin to describe how adorably awkward and awesome this book was. I laughed- so so hard and I swooned even harder reading Madeline and Adam's story. The Foxe and the Hound was a great twist on the small town girl goes to the big city and really brought the Texas heat!
