A full-length STANDALONE romantic comedy from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey.
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.
The Foxe & the Hound by R.S. Grey was the perfect romantic comedy to charm me out of my rainy day funk.
Madeleine Thatcher is a super sweet, but perpetually single, down on her luck realtor. She has a new adorably unruly puppy to keep her company, but whether in love, work, or just life in general, the lady just cannot seem to catch a break. Her misadventures create some hilarious moments, including an unfortunate encounter with Dr. Adam Foxe.
Adam is the new man in the small town, and he’s got a few things going for him:
1) He’s hot
2) He’s single
3) He’s a vet, which means he’s employed and he’s an animal lover
4) See all of the above
Adam and Madeleine have the perfect degree of tentative attraction that grows into some wonderful chemistry. I loved these characters together and enjoyed the fact that any conflicts are of the lighthearted variety. It’s Madeleine and her dog Mouse, though, that sell the story and provide the bulk of scene-stealing humor.
If you’re looking for lots of steam with your romance, you won’t find much here. The Foxe and the Hound is simply a sweet, feel-good comedic love story that suited me just fine.
