Release Blitz: The Fox and the Hound by R.S. Grey



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 by Lisa Kane

I LOVED this book, as in madly loved it!

Madeleine Thatcher is Lucas Thatcher’s sister from Anything You Can Do. He and her best friend Daisy are both doctors, live in the same town ad Madeleine and just got married a few months ago. They have their acts together. On the other hand, Madeleine’s life is a bit of a mess. She is constantly behind on her rent, her career as a realtor is not going well- has only sold one house in the last six months (and that was to Thatch and Daisy!) and she can’t seem to find anyone to date. She has numerous dating apps on her phone but never seems to find any matches. Living in a small town doesn’t exactly afford her numerous dating options. She is a bit lonely so she adopts a puppy. The girl at the shelter told her it would stay relatively small but this puppy is now the size of a small horse. 

On the way to the vet’s Mouse (obviously she named her dog Before she realized it was going to rival Clifford the Big Red Dog) takes off on her and knocks over a good looking guy in an expensive suit. The guy is not friendly. Nor very accepting of her offer to pay his suit to be dry-cleaned. 
So guess who is the new vet? Adam Foxe has just moved from Chicago to be closer to his family. And to start over. (Hmm…start over from what exactly??) When he sees his first patient he is intrigued by Madeleine-although he can’t understand why she adopted a dog/horse. 

“Listen, can you please spare me the lecture about what a terrible mistake it was to adopt him? I would do again without a second thought.” (you go girl-tell his pompous self where to stick it!)

To say these two didn’t hit if off is an understatement. But they both find themselves thinking about the other. When Madeleine hears Adam may be in the market for a new house she thinks he just might be the answer to her realtor slump. 
Thus starts the beginning of a curious relationship. Adam is adamant that he is not looking to date. (he’s almost cruel about it at times and I wanted to make good use of one of those animal thermometers on him!) 

It’s been a few days since my incident with Madeleine at the YMCA, and she hasn’t replied to my phone calls or text messages. The tables are reversed, and I don’t like it. 

Madeleine tries so hard to stay optimistic about things, whenever I thought she was becoming a doormat, she surprised me with her strength. She has to guard her heart.

“I get it. If we were to date, I’d just be your rebound girl.”

I have to say I loved Daisy in Anything You Can Do but in this book-not so much. I think she was too snarky with her casual remarks to Madeleine, especially when she was hurting and trying to vent. She kinda sort of redeemed herself at the end, but it still left me wanting more from her. 
The banter between Adam and Madeleine is pure RS Grey. Nobody writes more with fewer words than this writer does. 

His car revs up in the parking lot, and I stare at the wall where he just had me pinned. There might as well be a white chalk outline etched there. After all, it’s a crime scene. Theft in the first degree. 

Her double entendres, her witty retorts-give them to me! When she is on her game, she is on fire! I hope there are a few more stories in this series-she’s got another hit on her hands!

This thing-Madeleine-is a new kind of love, a scary kind of love. It feels precarious and fragile, like if I’m not careful, I could lose it as easily as I found it.

Get a Sneak Peek of THE FOXE & THE HOUND

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.
