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.

What to expect from The Foxe and the Hound: a hot as sin veterinarian, a down on her luck real estate agent, one rambunctious, oversized puppy, multiple awkward run-ins, and a sweet, light, and a  slow-burn, laugh-out-loud romance.

Like all of her books I’ve read so far, this was entertaining and impossible to put down.

When real estate agent Madeleine Thatcher adopted her adorable fluff ball Mouse, she had no idea he’d grow as big as her. She only thought Mouse was a fur baby who looked like it to belong to her and her home. Sure, the dog is now a growing force to be reckoned with, but she wouldn’t replace Mouse for the world. Not even when her dog jumps on the hot new guy and muddies up his outfit.

After a disastrous break-up with his fiancée, veterinarian Adam Foxe moves to Texas to start anew. He prefers Chicago. He thinks Hamilton, Texas is too small a city where he gets jumped by a giant muddy puppy on his first day of work and bumps into the same woman with the naughty puppy every time he goes out.

Adam and Madeleine did not have the best first meeting. Honestly, their second meeting wasn’t better. Whether they want to admit it or not, they’re incredibly curious about one another. They can’t really do anything about it since Adam doesn’t want to date and Madeleine needs to work her butt off to keep her job. Doesn’t mean they won’t meet up again. Hamilton is a small place and they run in the same circle.

Adam might need a new home, and Madeleine needs another sale if she doesn’t want to get fired. 

If Madeleine seems familiar, it’s because she made her first appearance in Anything You Can Do as Daisy’s best friend and Lucas’s little sister. I’ve always been curious about her when I was reading about her in the other book, so it was a pleasant surprise to find out she has her own story.

Madeleine’s life is a bit of a mess at 27 but she continues to work hard and is kind and good-natured. She’s also very relatable. It’s nice to see a character who doesn’t have her sh*t together at 27, and you know what, that’s fine. We can f*k up and fall down, but we can always stand up and work harder.

I love Adam Foxe. ugh. I mean seriously. A good-looking man who’s great with animals is a living wet dream. AND HE CAN COOK. He’s a bit serious at times (I love it), but he spars with Madeleine when they see each other, and I really think Madeleine brings out the funnier man in him.

The Foxe and the Hound is a standalone novel told in alternating POVs. With great banter and a perfect balance between angst, sexual tension, and humor, readers looking for a great rom-com will love this book.

P.S. I will never look at closets the same way again.

I follow his gaze to where my dress has ridden up. When I’m standing, it’s a modest length, but the leather seats in his Audi have hiked up the skirt and a few inches of my thighs are now on perfect display.

His gaze drags down, pausing on my lips for a moment before he trails down my neck and chest. He’s studying my dress—no, he’s studying my body beneath the fabric. His smile is slow to spread, a little haunting…sexual.

About R.S. Grey

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
