About THE FOXE & THE HOUND
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.

My favorite R.S. Grey book to date, THE FOXE AND THE HOUND is the perfect balance of lighthearted comedy and sexy romance. Madeleine is a very flawed but very relateable character and Adam definitely grew on me. Their first meeting was terrible, and their second was really not much better. Adam was a jerk to Madeleine at the beginning of the book, but it was fun to see them struggle to stay away from each other as they continued to run into each other in their small Texas town.
A super hot man who loves animals and is a great cook? Sign me up! Adam, while equally flawed in his own ways, made a fantastic love interest for the story and kept me flying through the pages. I will never look at walk-in closets the same way again. Just saying.
The book had just the right amount of sexy moments. While there may not have been as many of these scenes as in other romance books, I felt that they were super well-written and perfectly paced throughout the book in between pieces of the plot. It’s a rom-com, so you pretty much know you’re getting a happy ending out of it, and I LOVED the adorable ending to this book!
Overall, I devoured this story and think you will too. The small-town Texas vibes were an added bonus! This book was good enough that I may even re-read it in the future. It would be the perfect vacation or beach read! 5 STARS.
