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.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in the little town of Hamilton, Texas.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Adam Foxe and Madeleine Thatcher. There’s a new pet doctor in town and everyone is curious, including Madeleine Thatcher. Unfortunately, Madeleine’s top priorities are getting more clients under her real estate belt and trying to get her life on track. But Dr. Adam Foxe keeps showing up unexpectedly and surprisingly there is more to him than meets the eye. Can Madeleine delve deeper into Dr. Foxe’s heart all while keeping her own safe? Or will a blast from the past wreak havoc on their seemingly bright future?
Plot: This is romance between Adam and Madeleine. This story does start out with a little hate but evolves into so much more!
Writing: This novel is written in first person points of view of Adam and Madeleine. It is a standalone romantic comedy.
Curb Appeal: I really like this cover! The color scheme is great and you don’t normally see only partial faces, so that’s what makes this cover unique! The blurb mainly talks about Madeleine and leaves Adam a bit of a mystery, but does a good job of giving information about Madeleine’s life.
Ultimately: This was a funny and somewhat low drama story! The main characters had a fun push and pull relationship, that was able to develop into something meaningful and real. All in all, if you are in the mood for hero who is ready to push his girl for more and heroine who is ready to give her all for love then come check out The Foxe and The Hound!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
