Synopsis: 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.
Review: I only read a novel “A Place in the Sun” by R.S. Gray, but I really had a good time. Also, I was curious to discover another of her stories. This is how I dive into The Foxe & the Hound and I must say that I really had a good time with this romantic comedy.
Madeleine is really out of luck. Like a lot! When she took a dog, she was told that he would be small, except that he is really far from being small and he is not yet an adult. On top of that, this dog is a terror and she can not seem to be able to educate him. Even treats do not work. So when she runs into a man in a park and that he jumps on him, she is not surprised. On the other hand, she did not expect to find Adam. Everywhere! He’s the new veterinarian in town, he’s at the supermarket, at her brother’s, everywhere! And then it must be said that this Adam, he is very beautiful and as the city is not very large all women are wants to know him better. Yet both are attracted to each other, but the blunders they make do not help and especially while Adam does not want a relationship. He has just finished a long relationship and he is not looking for anyone.
I really had a good time with this story. It is really funny and I was eager to see what was going to happen each time. I enjoyed discovering all the characters wether it is the family of Adam, Adam, Madeleine or this uncontrollable dog. I think R.S Gray is an author to follow and I can not wait to read another of her novels now. I really recommend this one if you want to laugh!
