About THE FOXE & THE HOUND
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.

R.S. Grey’s newest release, The Foxe and the Hound, showcases Grey’s ability to infuse her romantic comedies with just the right amount of angst, steam, and quirkiness – a perfect combination that has readers swooning, laughing out loud, and highlighting one liners as Madeline and Adam’s story develops.
The life of Madeline Thatcher is quite the hot mess; every facet of it is filled with embarrassing incidences – ones where she makes a complete fool out of herself and then has to deal with the fallout, which simply creates one heck of a vicious cycle of chaos and leaves her feeling even more defeated and overwhelmed.
R.S. Grey created such a fantastic character in Madeline – one who is definitely flawed but one who also is an eclectic mixture of intelligence, confidence, cynicism, and wit. She’s a very relatable heroine and although, at times, she does seem to have multiple personalities, she still is an exceptional woman, which Adam Foxe is definitely aware of, even if his first impression of her is less than stellar.
In the words of Madeline herself, Adam is one “homo sapien perfectus”! And, even though I wanted to shake him at times because of his hot/cold demeanor with Madeline and the mixed signals he seems to send, his reasons for not giving into his feelings for her make sense and the process he goes through to determine the steps he should take with her are illustrated through his own perspective, so readers witness when he reaches his breaking point and attempts to take what he wants when he wants it.
The relationship that develops between Madeline and Adam is definitely not fluid, but based on the circumstances that surround them and their initial reactions to one another, it’s impossible for it to go smoothly. R.S. Grey does a great job of illustrating the ups and downs that both characters endure as they try to work out what the chemistry between them means and what they’re willing to go through in order for any kind of a connection to work.
I have to tell you that Madeline’s dog, Mouse, definitely stole the show throughout the story…as rambunctious and out of control as he is, he’s still so easy to love and it makes the interactions between him, Madeline, and Adam quite comical.
As a reader, it’s so easy to escape into the setting that Grey creates because I can relate to the small town nuances that are described in Hamilton, Texas. Its mentality is one that will resonate with many readers, especially those who grew up in such a place and have their own stories about everyone knowing everyone’s business and the hysteria that’s created when a new “eligible” bachelor moves into town.
I can’t get enough of R.S. Grey’s writing as well as her carefully crafted characters and story lines. She truly has a gift when it comes to the romantic comedy trope, and the fact that each story is unique and doesn’t follow a cookie cutter standard makes the stories she tells that much more powerful and entertaining.

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.
