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.
I know when I pick up one of R.S. Grey’s books, I’m going to find a fun, swoony and sexy book. The Foxe & the Hound was no exception. It’s not surprising I devoured this book in nearly one sitting.
I’m a total sucker for the “meet cute” in books, movies, tv shows and, yes, even real life. Madeline and Adam’s had me literally laughing out loud. One of my other favorite things in books is when pets have so much personality they basically become another character in the book. Mouse fit the bill. This isn’t particularly surprising since Adam is a veterinarian, but still. I adored it. The Foxe & the Hound also contained one of my favorite tropes — fake it till you make it — so it’s no wonder I enjoyed this one as much as I did.
Despite Madeline and Adam getting off to a SERIOUSLY rocky start on their first meeting — and the one after that — I loved them together. I was shipping them from the very start. I was gleeful when Adam proposed Madeline play his girlfriend in exchange for her helping him find a house to buy. It’s a win for everyone! (Especially me.) These two had crazy chemistry, witty banter and some hilariously awkward moments and I was totally into all of it.
I loved The Foxe & the Hound! Thanks to R.S. Grey’s humor, swoons and sexy times, I love getting lost in her books. This one was no exception. I can’t wait to see what she gives us next!
I cannot afford to buy this stranger a new suit, so I only have one option. I will kill Mouse. I will kill him Cruella de Vil and make him into a beautiful new fur suit.
“He called it a date, but I’m calling it a casual dining experience between two consenting adults.”
“Daisy, it’s not the 1950s. I’m an independent woman who can spray her milk all over town if she so chooses.”
