Blog Tour: The Foxe and The Hound by R. S. Grey

June 14, 2017


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 was in an awful mood when I began reading The Foxe and the Hound. In fact, I didn’t even really feel like reading at all. I’m a book blogger though and that kind of means I have to sometimes even when I’m not feeling it. I love R.S. Grey, but I was still fully prepared to sulk and drag myself through the book purely due to the way I felt at the time. However, within a few minutes of reading I was smiling, and before I knew it, I was laughing. I flew through the story in one sitting and felt a hundred times better when I was done. R.S Grey, thank you for turning my day around!

Madeleine Thatcher is a real estate agent that is a little down on her luck where her job is concerned. She has sold exactly one house in her first year with the company she works for, and that results in her being placed on probation. They expect her to do something to improve her sales in the next 2 months, or she may be looking for a new job. 

Adam Foxe, a veterinarian, moved to the small town of Hamilton, Texas from Chicago, Illinois to be close to his family after his fiancé of 5 years cheated on him with his best friend. The difference between big city life and life in Hamilton is astronomical, and it’s a lot harder to adjust than he anticipated. On the way to his first day of work, he is mauled by a huge, happy, and extremely muddy puppy named Mouse. He has a heated exchange with the owner, Madeleine, and is soon reunited with them both when she brings Mouse in for his shots. 

After those two encounters, Madeleine begins bumping into Adam all over town. It seems like they can’t go anywhere without seeing each other’s face. Between a series of unfortunate events, embarrassing encounters, puppy love, and accidental nakedness, things start to heat up between them… whether they want it to or not. 

The Foxe and the Hound is well written, entertaining, light, and full of humor. The romance is sweet, the dog is adorable, the characters are likable, and I wouldn’t mind having an Adam myself, just saying. (I pictured him as Amadeo Leandro with green eyes. If you don’t know who he is, google it and thank me later!) I would have liked a little more steam, but all in all, I can’t complain about much. I haven’t read one of this author’s books in a while, and reading this reminded me why I should. If you are looking for a cute romantic comedy that will make you smile until your cheeks ache, or you’re familiar with this author’s work and enjoy it, don’t hesitate to give this one a try!
