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.

5 “This was Everything” Stars
FIVE STARS!!!!!!! Five friggin sweet and swoony stars! I’m so in love with this book! I’m swooning as I write this review. I mean, wow. That gave me endless tingles and chest aches and feels. So. Many. Feels. I’m not even kidding. My tingles had tingles, my swoon had swoon, and the butterflies in my belly had their own darn butterflies. This book was yummy. From the first to the last page it was downright delicious. Adam and Madeleine are two of the very best characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and I am so in love with them individually and together as a couple. Charming and sweet, endearing and captivating, The Foxe & The Hound held me in its clutches and made me happy. R.S Grey never ceases to amaze me, and this is without a doubt her BEST NOVEL YET.
Brimming with charm and the kind of humor that makes your cheeks hurt from smiling, this standalone speaks straight to a romance readers heart. It’s light and fresh, unique and quirky, and comes from an author I trust to deliver a fantastic RomCom each and every time. R.S Grey is always consistent in quality, giving readers well written, well thought out and heartfelt romances that shine. I have to say I’m so impressed with her! I didn’t think it could get any better than Anything You Can Do, her last release, but it did. It got even better with The Foxe & The Hound, which is now my most favorite R.S. Grey book to date.
Madeleine Thatcher’s life is in a rut. At 27, things have not panned out the way she thought they would, but ever the positive thinker and go-getter, Madeleine keeps on going. She’s one of those characters who’s positively delightful to read about! I swear, one of my Goodreads updates was that I wanted to date her myself. LMAO. She’s funny and her inner monologue and witty thoughts charmed me through and through. I fell in love with her before I ever fell in love with Adam because she was endearing and real. She has such a genuine disposition. I connected with her troubles, her life “funk”. Madeleine’s a real estate agent but in the time she’s been doing that she’s only sold one property, and that was to Lucas (her brother) and Daisy (her BFF). So to say things are not going well for her is an understatement.
Adam Foxe is new in Hamilton. From Chicago, he relocated after a bad break up. He’s the town vet, and really… he’s just looking to settle into life. He needs time to figure out what he wants and he’s most definitely not wanting to jump into any new relationships. When Adam and Madeleine meet it’s not exactly love at first sight! Their meet-cute is utterly hilarious and involves the sweetest puppy called Mouse. I could barely contain my smile as I read. I was so enamored. These two have a natural chemistry that crackles and sparks and makes you feel giddy. As you read it only gets better and better, Adam and Madeleine can’t stay away from each other and when sparks fly, the sweetest love story commences.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, R.S Grey knows how to write the BEST Romantic Comedies. I truly think she’s the best of the best when it comes to books in this genre. She always softens the heartbreaking moments with the funniest humor, and her stories are so genuine and sweet, addicting and well written. To say I loved The Foxe & The Hound would be an understatement. It was the perfect mix of angst, steam, laughs and swoon! Just charming. A DEFINITE MUST READ!
5 “This was Everything” Stars
The Foxe and the Hound is an awkwardly adorable romance between a down on her luck realtor and the new-in-town vet who can’t seem to escape her. This story unfolds as mutual friends, one adorable but mischievous puppy, and pure coincidence seem to thrust Adam Foxe and Madeleine Thatcher together at every turn. At first, stilted conversation and bristled remarks are their sole mode of communication, but as they spend more time together, an unexpected attraction begins to bloom and an emotionally tumultuous but wholly captivating romance ensues.
I love a sweet, feel good romance, absolutely. But more, I love a story that tugs at my heartstrings, pinches my chest with that pleasurepain I hope to find in every romance I read but so rarely do. The Foxe and the Hound is a richly complex story that perfectly weaves sweetness with heartache, flirtation with rejection, bliss with strife. The battle between attraction and reluctance was RELENTLESS in this book and my heart still aches from how frequently it swelled with joy only to squeeze in pain at each turn of the page. THAT is what I loved most about this book… the back and forth, the messy uncertainty, the hurtful indecision mixed seamlessly with humor. It was just… EVERYTHING.
I can’t tell you how many times I had to pause from reading because I found myself full on belly laughing. I love a good Rom Com but it’s hard to find smart, witty, charming writing and well timed humor that isn’t silly. But RS Grey nails it. I don’t find silliness funny, but quick wit and hilarious inner monologue, well, I’m all over that. Grey’s comedic timing in this story is superb. I’m not a laugh out loud reader, I’m really not. But I caught myself wiping away tears of laughter throughout this story.
You’ll want to read this book because it’ll fill you with warm feels and guarantee bouts of giggles. You’ll want to read this romance because Madeleine and Adam are extraordinary together, their chemistry is on fire but their indecision makes for an angsty, addictive storyline you’ll eagerly devour. You’ll want to experience this adorably witty, intoxicating story because RS Grey is magnificent at weaving heavy emotions with lighter, fluffier moments. You’ll want it all… except for this story to end. I devoured this book in a matter of hours because I physically couldn’t put it down. Everything about this book is top notch. I can’t put into words how perfectly well done it is, how smart I found this story to be. So I’ll just say this: The Foxe and the Hound is one of the absolute best books of the year. I loved it!
