My review :
Hello everyone ! If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen that I was lucky to receive an ARC from one of my favorite author : R.S. Grey in exchange for an honest review. I’m really happy and I thank the author and her team again. Even more now that The Foxe and the Hound has officially become my favorite novel from this author. Honestly, R.S. Grey is for me the queen of romantic comedy just like Sophie Kinsella is the queen of Chick-lit.
Have you ever read a book that put a smile on your face and that you enjoy so much you don’t want it to end ? Well, The Foxe and the Hound was it for me. I’ve read Anything you can do by the same author and said that R.S. Grey couldn’t do better as I thought it couldn’t be more perfect than that. But she did it! This book exceeded everything.
What I liked
When we read the summary, it sounds like something you could have already read and yet it isn’t. The characters make all the difference. Madeleine is your typical modern, independent woman, with big dreams but quickly caught up by reality and who works really hard to succeed. She needs to deal with awful co-workers, financial difficulties and not very promising candidates for a futur husband. I love that a lot of women her age can identify. The fact that she thought at her age she would have her life figured out but reality is a bit different. And I especially loved her humor and inner dialogue.
Adam is a victim of his good looks because beneath it is a sensitive man who’s been burnt before and will be hesitant to enter a new relationship. However he’s not indifferent to Madeleine’s charm which will torment him, for our enjoyment.
Every scene, every dialogue, every word exchanged between Madeleine and Adam brought a smile or a laugh out of me. They were so adorable. I can’t explain what made me love them so much exactly. I can just say this couple was perfect and the magic was there. That special something that makes you melt. How he didn’t want anything to do with her but couldn’t get enough of her at the same time. Both their honesty and genuine feelings. Everything was perfect and I recommend this book to every lover of romantic comedy and everyone who would like to have a good time in the company of lovable and endearing characters such as Adam and Madeleine (Not to forget Mouse and Molly!).
PS : I have a soft spot for the hand-shaking scene during the bowling night. 🙂 <3
I’m off to re-read the book. Bye !
More details : (Goodreads)
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.
