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 & Jerr

➦If you were to pick a dog, you could spend months researching breeds, figuring out which one is the best fit for you. You could go to shelters, dog shows, hanging around and asking questions.

➦Or, you could be just like the heroine of this book, and go to a shelter to make an impulsive adoption of a certain adorable furry ball of a pup.

➦It does seem like a faster, easier way to go, right? Well, except if nobody really tells you how big your dog is going to get.

This is a rom-com? My bad, I must have been laughing in my head except I'm almost certain I didn't crack even one smile.

Madeleine. Grow up, put some effort into actually doing your job or maybe just get another job. And oh, don't ever allow anyone call you bi-polar (even if you are); also, if you have to call a guy a dozen times without a callback or even an itsy bitsy text message, then, please, have some self-respect and- you know- move on with your LIFE!

I thought my heart was dead—gone—after Olivia, but Madeleine has proved it’s alive and well, beating so hard I can barely see straight.

Every time I hear there’s a new R.S. Grey book coming out, I get a little giddy inside. I know that I am guaranteed to fall in love with the story and characters she creates. THE FOXE AND THE HOUND was right up my alley. Being a HUGE dog lover, I got a kick out of the fact that the swoon-worthy Hero in thi

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

What to expect from The Foxe and the Hound: a hot as sin veterinarian, a down on her luck real estate agent, one rambunctious, oversized puppy, multiple awkward run-ins, and a sweet, light, and a slow-burn, laugh-out-loud romance.

Like all of her books I've read so far, this was entertaining and impossible to put down.

When real estate agent Madeleine Thatcher adopted her adorable fluff ball Mouse, she had no idea he'd grow as big as her. She only thought Mouse

I was in an awful mood when I began reading The Foxe and the Hound. In fact, I didn’t even really feel like reading at all. I’m a book blogger though and that kind of means I have to sometimes even when I’m not feeling it. I love R.S. Grey, but I was still fully prepared to sulk and drag myself through the book purely due to the way I felt at the time. However, within a few minutes of reading I was smiling, and before I knew it, I was laughing. I flew through the story in one sitting and felt a ...more

I'm in love with this story and the characters *sigh*.R.S. Grey did it again,she delivers a lovely,sweet,adorable,fun and intense story.


If you know me,then you know how addictive I am with Rachel's stories.She always make me happy with her books and this one was something else.I adored Madeleine and Adam.Separately and together,they have an amazing chemistry.

If you are looking for something refreshing, with a sassy heroine a swoon worthy hero and a sweet romance this is perfect!!

I absolutely love when you can fall into every book you read by an author. You know, you just know it's going to make you fall💕 But first, let me say this, I wanted to hate Adam Foxe, badly.

I think I did hate or disalike him at times, a lot of times, but I totally understand why he was so hesitant, so reserved. His past. He's unhappy and he's had the worst betrayal happen to him. But hello, enter the entertainer of the year, Madeleine Thatcher. She could cure anyone's broken heart.

A big thank you to the author for providing me with an advance ebook copy to review!

This was cute but for some reason I didn't really love it? 😕 I'm a fairly new R.S. Grey fan and I've only read three books by Rachel, four including The Foxe and the Hound, and I've loved every single one of them but I'm a little disappointed with this one.

I felt like not much happened in the story and the relationship between Madeleine and Adam was kiiiiinda underdeveloped. I didn't feel that thrill I had wi

Not going to rate this, because the writing is good, and most of the characters are pretty engaging.

With the exception of the male lead.

He was just SUCH an asshole. Insurmountably so, for me. I could have kept going, because I'm sure he tries to redeem himself, but I'm just not that forgiving, and no amount of groveling could make up for his shitty behavior up until the point I quit.

The fact that the female lead is super sweet and easily forgives him (where I wouldn't) made it even wor
Joce (squibblesreads)
It's time to DNF a book when a joke about assault turns into the pickup line that begins a passionate makeout scene, and there is also the line "taming wild mustangs with patience and masculinity". At least I borrowed it and didn't pay!

Edit: Finished this so people wouldn’t come at me for not finishing it when I include it in a list in an upcoming video.
An appealing enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy that is sure to make you smile. I hadn't laughed that hard in a while! Absolutely fun, sexy and adorable. R. S. Grey's buoyancy shines through!

Madeline Thatcher didn’t mean to reach twenty seven and still have her life in disarray. But she has her priorities straight. 1. Sell at least one house in the near future in order to pay the months overdue rent. 2. Train her ginormous puppy to heel and not maul well-dressed, good looking men, especially

Freaking had fun with this book. Light, sweet and although a predictable plot, the author did a great job with the heroine not being a complete doormat. Certainly an enemies-to-lovers type with an amazing hero and heroine hating then loving each other's guts. Loved Madeleine's real life struggles. Instead of bitching, she fought to right her struggles. When someone from the past returns, instead of self depracating, self sabotaging she took a step back and gave herself a pep talk. You go

The Foxe and the Hound is a fast and easy read that had me smiling. It is the first book that I have read from this author, but it will certainly not be my last.

Madeleine Thatcher is a “hot mess”. She is struggling with work, money, and even her dog is giving her problems, not to mention her nonexistent love life. Things start to look up when a hot new veterinarian moves to her small Texas town.

Adam Foxe moves from Chicago to be close to his family. Although he is the talk of the town,

For some reason, I didn’t realize that this book was also set in the small town of Hamilton, but I’m so glad it was and that we got to catch up with Lucas and Daisy while getting Madeleine’s quirky love story.

Madeleine and Adam meet in a not-so-great way and start off on the wrong foot with each other. Though being in a small town makes running into each other easier whether they want to see each other or not. But when both need something, they figure they can use each other for something good.

This was the perfect romantic comedy to charm me out of my rainy day funk.

Madeleine Thatcher is a super sweet but perpetually single, down on her luck realtor. She has a new adorably unruly puppy to keep her company, but whether in love, work, or just life in general, the lady just cannot seem to catch a break. Her misadventures create some hilarious moments, including an unfortunate encounter with Dr. Adam Foxe.

Adam is the new man in the small town, and he’s got a few things going for him:

This was my first by this very popular author, and it's left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Somehow all the female characters are portrayed as either shallow, catty, desperate, irresponsible, or just plain stupid.

This comment by the hero's mother underscores the tone of the story perfectly.
"If I know women, she'll rearrange her whole schedule to be there with you."

The Foxe & the Hound by R.S. Grey was one of those light-hearted, feel-good books that I'm looking for. Afterwards I had a big smile on my face. Not only did the book leave me utterly satisfied, I ended up adoring the characters and their four-legged friends.

Adam Foxe and Madeleine Thatcher were FANTASTIC together.

Audiobooks are there for me to listen to when I can't sit down to read. Unfortunately, I have a wee problem stopping. I get off the train, hop in my car drive home and then have at least an hour before the kids get home. I "plan" to do stuff and tell myself to use the time wisely. What normally happens is that I get home, put the kettle on for coffee and check emails while my coffee is brewing. Then, because I can't help myself, my earbuds go back in and

This was a sweet and funny story. As all of Ms. R.S Grey's books I have read so far. I love her books and they are a joy to read them and laugh and have a great time.

I enjoyed this reading a lot and the characters were pretty good! I liked that we saw Luca and Daisy again and how they've been so far. Adam and Madeleine's chemistry was great and so hot at times...

I had a hard time getting through this one. There were some great elements, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

The overall feel of this novel was immature. R.S. Grey laid the foundation for some good stuff, but then she didn’t do anything with it. For instance, the size of the dog could have been played up more. Well, the dog could have been used more all around.
