Book review: The Foxe & The Hound by R.S. Grey

Goodreads   Amazon

I didn’t plan to be this dysfunctional at 27, but dysfunctionality has a way of creeping up on you. One second, you’re 22, wrapping up your undergraduate degree from a top business school, and then suddenly, you’re sitting alone in your car at 27, wondering how five years slipped through your fingers without so much as a blink.

Madeleine Thatcher always thought she’d be successful.  She followed all the rules – she went to college, got a good job, worked hard.  It’s just that nobody wants to buy a house from the cute, young real estate agent.  They’d rather work with one of the seasoned veterans.  Not only is she not getting commission checks, but she’s on probation at work.  Without any sales, she’ll be fired.

When Madeleine’s unpredictable dog accidentally mauls handsome veterinarian Adam Foxe, neither Madeleine or Adam realize that it will be the start of a friendship.  Soon after they meet, Adam asks Madeleine to pretend to be his girlfriend at a family function.  In return, the new-to-town vet will buy a house from her.  It’s a simple business transaction, but an unbearable attraction bubbles beneath the surface of all their interactions.

Well, R.S. Grey has done it again.  She’s slayed me with her words, her characters, her banter, and the SEXUAL TENSION.  I might have actually died, and for that, I give The Foxe & the Hound a resounding five-star review.

Madeleine is great.  She is actually me, if I were a little wittier and less socially awkward.  She’s 27 years old, and she has no idea what’s going on in her life.  She’s all but given up on dating.  She tries so hard at her job, but she just can’t seem to make it work.  She’s snarky and silly and I loved her.  Can I please have a best friend like Madeleine?  Thanks.

And then there’s Adam.  When I read in the blurb that he’s a sexy vet in well-fitting scrubs, I knew he’d be the death of me.  Has there ever been a love interest that is more my type?  I don’t think so.  It’s like Grey reached into the recesses of my mind to determine the two perfect characters and wrote this book specifically for me.

And the banter.  I love banter.  The banter in this book is perfect.  Everybody is so sassy with each other and I adored it.

“Wow. That was some tour,” Kathy says with a laugh. “We’ve been sitting here for almost thirty minutes.”

Adam nods. “Yeah, I really liked the house. I wanted Madeleine to show me every nook and cranny.”

“And did you, Madeleine?” Kathy asks with feigned innocence. “Did you show Adam every nook and cranny?”

When I wasn’t swooning over the sexual tension, I was nearly falling out of my bed with laughter.

Honestly, there’s not much more to say.  This book was a masterpiece.  If there was a class on how to write a book that I would personally love, this would be the shining example.  The A+.  I just went and added everything R.S. Grey has ever written to my TBR and my Amazon wishlist.

Final rating: ★★★★★
