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.

In general

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.

Résumé (Goodreads) 


Subject: Justin Timberlake Nudes!

Lily, you predictable perv. I knew you’d open this email faster if I tempted you with a glimpse of JT’s “PP”. Well, put your pants back on and grab some bubbly because I have much better news to share.


As of tomorrow, I’ll be the new executive assistant at Lorena Lefray Designs. I am SO excited, but there’s one itty bitty problem: I won’t be Lorena’s assistant. I’ll be working for her older brother, Julian.

I know what you’re thinking- “But Jo, what’s the problem?”

Google him. Now. He’s the man in the fitted navy suit whose face reminds you that there’s hope yet for this cruel, ugly world. Keep scrolling…Do you see those dimples? Yup. That’s the Julian Lefray I will be reporting to tomorrow morning.

Lord, help us all…


Mon avis :

Sentiment général

J’ai beaucoup apprécié le style d’écriture de R.S. Grey dans son précédent livre “The Design” ainsi que ses personnages très drôles. Je me souviens avoir tellement ri en lisant les pensées de Cammie. Mais là ! Là, j’admets qu’elle m’a surprise avec ce bouquin. C’est un niveau totalement au-dessus : hilarant et adorable !



Joséphine, appelée “Jo” Keller est hyper drôle ! Elle est vraie, authentique et représente la jeune femme lambda à laquelle la plupart peuvent s’identifier. Enfin, je veux dire n’importe quelle femme incroyablement belle qui a la chance de travailler avec un homme terriblement séduisant, mais bon…

Elle travaille dur pour atteindre ses objectifs, a un manque de confiance en elle comme beaucoup d’entre nous. Sa situation et ses dettes reflètent une réalité. Ses coups de fils et emails à sa meilleure amie Lily rappellent ceux de n’importe laquelle d’entre nous et j’ai adoré cette connexion qu’on a avec le personnage principal.

Quelques citations de Joséphine qui m’ont fait rire :

“The first email, sitting right at the very top of my neglected inbox, was from Mr. Fuck-Me himself. Er, I mean, Julian Lefray.” – “Le tout premier email qu’on retrouve en ouvrant ma boîte de réception délaissée venait de Monsieur Baise-Moi lui-même. Euh, je veux dire, Julian Lefray.

“He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word : Ijustgotpregnant. Yeah, that’s one word.” – “Il ne savait même pas quels effets ces fossettes avaient sur mes parties féminines. Un mot : Jeviensdetomberenceinte. Oui, c’est un seul mot.”



L’apparition de Julian est telle quelle doit être : magique. Il est décrit comme magnifique et élégant avec ce petit côté gentleman. C’est ce que j’ai vraiment aimé chez ce personnage. J’ai trouvé ça frais. C’était différent du bad-boy qui veut la fille dans son lit dès le premier soir. Même si je n’ai rien contre ce type de personnage masculin (vous vous en rendre compte dans mes autres lectures). Mais c’est vrai que ce changement fait du bien et j’ai adoré Julian.

Ce que j’ai aimé

R.S. Grey nous offre une vraie histoire, pleine de romance et une réelle amitié entre ces deux personnages. Cela n’empêche l’attirance sexuelle grandissante que Julian et Jo essayent de nier pour ne pas entraver leur relation professionnelle. Et ça, pour notre plus grand plaisir car ça donne des scènes très drôles 😉

“That is, us pretending to be friends while subtly eye-fucking the shit out of each other” – “C’est nous, faisant semblant d’être amis tout en se déshabillant subtilement du regard“.

L’auteure nous offre également des dialogues pleins d’humour entre Joséphine et Julian, mais pas que.
Pour conclure, ce livre est drôle, drôle, drôle et nous raconte l’histoire d’un couple touchant.

Je le recommande à tous les amoureux de comédies romantiques.

My review :

I really liked R.S. Grey’s writing style in her previous book « The Design » as well as her funny characters. I remember laughing so much while reading Cammie’s thoughts. But now ! Now, I must admit she surprised me with this book, it was a totally whole new level of hilarious, sweet and cute !

Joséphine, aka « Jo » Keller is so damn funny ! She is real, authentic and represents ordinary people so well we can identify (Well, I meant very stunning ordinary people who has the chance to work with a very good-looking man, but still…).

She works hard to achieve her goals like anybody else, she lacks self-confidence like anybody else, her situation and her debts are real too ! Her phone calls and emails with her best friend Lily who stayed in Texas are ones any ordinary girl has with her own best friend and I loved the closeness it gives us with her character.

Some quotes of Joséphine that made me laugh :

The first email, sitting right at the very top of my neglected inbox, was from Mr. Fuck-Me himself. Er, I mean, Julian Lefray.”

He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word : Ijustgotpregnant. Yeah, that’s one word.

Julian’s appearance is as its supposed to be : « dreamy ». He’s described as gorgeous and smart with this gentleman touch. That’s what I really liked about this hero. I found it refreshing, it was different from the « bad-boy » male character, who’s rough and wants the girl in his bed right now. Even if I don’t have anything against that kind of hero (you can see it from my previous reviews :D) but it’s true that this little change was good and I loved Julian.

R.S.Grey gives us a real story, full of romance, a real friendship between those two characters. That doesn’t help the growing sexual tension that they both try to surpass due to their professional relationship. And that is really entertaining 🙂

“That is, us pretending to be friends while subtly eye-fucking the shit out of each other”

The author also gives us conversations full of humor between Joséphine and Julian, but not only. To sum up, this book is fun, fun, fun and tells us a story about such an adorable couple. I recommend it to all lovers of a good romantic comedy.
