"Fox! what are you doing here.I don't get it.You don't want to be with me but you also don't want me to be with anybody else..."

"I want you to be happy,that's why I'm living this shit life.."Fox turned & stormed out.

I've read Aimee McNeil's Truth or Dare a while ago and quite enjoyed it, even though I had some issues with it. It's kind of the same for this book - overall it's entertaining but there were some negatives that I couldn't ignore and that made me give the book "only" 3 stars.

What are the pros? There's an intriguing blurb and a gorgeous cover - it does sound amazing, right? I was also fascinated by the music aspect of this book. I liked that the characters were into music and connected through i

Title: Catching Fox
Author: Aimee McNeil
Reviewer: Dawn
Stars: 5

In catching fox we get to meet two awesomely matched characters. Adalynne Fairweather (aka Bee) and Damon Knight (aka Fox). In the beginning of this story Bee and Fox are very young kids. Fox is like the kid from the other side of the tracks. While Addie's family has money Damon's family is poor in desperately broken.

Damon has done everything that he can to make sure that him and bee have remained friends. As they grow older they

I liked it but the heroine was a bit too "much." I don't think I have ever met a person as nice or understanding as Addie is, in real life. Her character was a too perfect, while the hero was the exact opposite- talk about hot and cold and back and forth. He did some douchy moves too- other women (in high school and during his "rockstar" life)- while technically not cheating because they weren't "together" I still consider it a betrayal. How Addie just forgives is beyond me. I didn't re

This was an emotional roller coaster for me. Like at 70% of the book I just started crying. Worst part was that I was at work and had to stop reading or everyone would look at me weird for crying. This was a beautiful story of a childhood love between two people who met when they were 6 years old and fought to stay together because the male lead didn't think he deserved love most of all her love.

This is a great read but I found myself skimming and skipping paragraphs because of the immense deta

First, many thanks to the author, who provided a free copy of Catching Fox in exchange for an honest review.

Once upon a time….. he was Fox, and she was Bee….and together they were all the world that they needed.

Adalynne was the very sheltered child of wealthy parents. We are first introduced to her at about age 6. Her world was very small, as she was homeschooled from a young age. While she wanted for nothing, Adalynne was terribly lonely. When a little boy with bright green eyes wande

The story of Fox and his 'Bee' was so very cute. Aimee McNeil crafted a story with two characters from the young age of six, through new adulthood, capturing the timid Fox (nicknamed as such due to his quiet ways, by Adalynne) and a young Adalynne -- who when they spoke of choosing any name in the world, she would rather be 'Bee'.

Told in Adalynne's voice, albeit in the third person, we watch as Adalynne and Fox grow up, as their feelings for one another grow from secret friends to something mor

This story is so crazy and emotional. Adalynne lived a kind of lonely life and then one day on her sixth birthday a little boy wondered into her yard. The boy was scared and ready to flee she named him fox and he named her bee. The story continues with them growing up and their relationship changing as they grew. When their senior year comes around Adalynne convinces her parents to let her go to public school which happens to be the same school Fox goes to. She didn’t tell him over the summer be ...more

The Heart Wants What It Wants . . .

This book left me conflicted, on one hand I actually loved how sweet the ending was and the stories resolution, but the main relationship just seemed too toxic for anyone to be okay with. The story is about loving someone so deeply that no one else can feel that spot, and understanding people have good in them even when others only see the harsh exterior.

At the age of 6, young Adalynne Fairweather found herself completely enchanted with a green eyed boy who app

As a sucker for coming of age stories, the moment I started this book I was instantly hooked.
A lovely friendship blossoms when young Adalynne decides to befriend the quiet green eyed boy the moment he wanders into her backyard.

I've read one other book from Aimee McNeil and it was so good. That I was really looking forward to reading Catching Fox.

Adalynne Fairweather at six years old, has perfect blonde curls, and a big bright smile who becomes friends with a quiet green eyed boy. She decides to call him Fox, because she remembers seeing a fox earlier in the week, that was quick, quiet and beautiful. Adalynne's nickname will be Bee because then she can wear stripes all the time and play in the flowers whenever she want

Honestly, I don't know where to start with Catching Fox... It brought out such emotion. I will admit, I spent my time looking like a psycho in public, because I couldn't put it down long enough and had to keep reading on my phone while out running errands. I laughed, I cried, I laughed again and cried some more. My heart literally broke so many times and was put back together again only to be broken once more!

This is my second book by Aimee McNeil and I have to admit that I liked this one better. I don't know if it was the story or the author becoming a more seasoned story teller, but I really did enjoy this book more than the previous effort.

Six year old Adalynne befriends six year old Damon and a lifelong relationship develops. Their friendship is its own little world where they are Bee and Fox and the outside doesn't exist. Fas

Oh holy emotional overload, first I give this book 5 stars and second it should come with a warning label..."potential ugly cry ahead"!
Because there was points that I had to put down this book and just walk away for two reasons one I couldn't see through the tears and two I was so heartbroken I needed time to recover. I mean let's just rip my heart out here! But with that being said and those emotional outbursts from me I devoured this book. This is the first book I've read by Aimee McNeil and

Sex: Yes, although for a new adult novel, the sex scenes are pretty tame compared to some.

Language: Several F-Bombs, and other mild language.

Violence: Nope, though there is some yelling.

Drugs/Alcohol: There is drinking, and some drug use by the male main character, Fox.

Nudity: Yes, it's mentioned a couple times.

What I Loved: I loved the way Fox and Addie fell in love as children. I loved how the tension grew and grew until Addie and Fox exploded, pulling at my emotions. I loved how Addie helped

I've had this book on my kindle for a while. It's been one of the free amazon downloads that I've been meaning to read for ages but haven't got round to. Well, I finally made time since I've cleared my ARC pile and it didn't disappoint.

I didn't expect this book to hook me the way it did. I've seen mixed reviews about it so I wasn't sure which way things would go for me. However, I really enjoyed Fox and Bee's story, and found it hard to put down.

This as a very emotional story. You will laugh, particularly at Katie. Lol. You will cry more than once. You're heart will break and your heart will be put back together.

Adalynne and Fox meet when they are 6 years old. They are from 2 different worlds. She is from money and Fox is the complete opposite. They run into each other and its friendship at first site ( with a little coaxing from Adalynne). They grow up being secret friends. The only one that know is Adalynn

We all want that ever elusive true love that comes along once in a lifetime. The kind of love that steals our heart, soul and mind. To have one person love us so much that nothing and no-one can break it. This book is about that kind of love.

Fox and Bee met when they were just 6 and that is when their love started to grow. But life being what it is, it got in the way and these two drifted apart and issues got in the way.

It takes many years and lots of heartache for these two to finally find a wa

I'm not a fan of third party or narrator books. So that was one thing about the book I was not a fan of. Ok Bee she's a great character but I never felt the connection with Fox. I'm sorry he just wasn't a character that was in the book enough. I wanted to experience what she was saying but it never felt that way until what 3% was left.

Not for me. Spoilers!

From the prologue to the end it felt like every chapter was a repeat of the one before, but with a little more info thrown into them. Characters didn't have any, well, "character" unless they were in the immediate storyline. Like, until she got the phone call from her Mom, I had no idea Adalynne had a special relationship with her Dad. Same with Elizabeth, and with Kent. Character development was off to me. I found it hard to connect to the main character, she was boring, an

It had a good storyline.

Let me just start off by saying....I loved Catching Fox!

Fox and Addie "Bee" were best friends when they were younger. Life took them on different paths but they have never forgotten each other. Addie has always been in love with Fox, but he's a famous rock star now. He's not the same boy she remembers.

Can Addie and Fox ever make a relationship work? Or are there too many secrets and obstacles in their past?

Honestly, I kept going back and forth between a 4 and a 3. In many ways, this book made me CRAZY! The amount of pain dished out in this book is almost masochistic. Drugs, alcohol, depression, and painful soul-searching love is what this book is all about. I love the ending but man I was really getting tired of the back and forth. Get together already!!!!
