About THE FOXE & THE HOUND
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.

The Foxe & The Hound kicks off with a messy encounter of a hot guy, clumsy and clueless girl and an untrained puppy. Strike one for a heated introduction.
But what happened next surprises the both of them.
Mr. Hot Guy, Adam Foxe, turned out to be the now assigned vet for Ms. Clumsy and Clueless, Madeleine Thatcher’s, untrained puppy – Mouse. Uh oh. That’s just the start of it. Because living in a small town you sure are bound to bump into the same people more often than you would want to, right?
I think Madeleine’s character and the phase that she’s in is something that people can relate to. At the age of twenty-seven, her life seemed like a one big rocky adventure. She’s struggling with her work as a real estate agent (in which she was placed in probation), with paying her bills and with her non-existent love life. It feels like most of the things in her life isn’t working in her favor and according to her plans. Tough position to be in. But instead of being fully eaten up by her insecurities and thoughts of being a failure, she took every hurdle in a stride. She believed in herself, remained positive and persevered for her wishes and dreams to come into fruition.
Adam Foxe confused me just as much he confused Madeleine. But that’s to be expected since Adam is facing an inner battle because his scarred self and plans of not dating are being tested by Madeleine’s presence. Considering what he experienced in the past, Adam toughen up, became quite serious and a bit guarded in all sorts. But whenever he’s with Madeleine, you can sense his moods and spirit lifting up.
I really, really don’t want to do the right thing anymore.
From the start, Madeleine and Adam’s character already got that interesting kind of chemistry going on. It’s the one that you’d want to keep up with and see when they’ll stop resisting each other. The face off moments that Madeleine and Adam had were intense and funny. Be sure to look forward to their crazy banters! But, for me, somewhere along the away the build up of the story and the tension between them teeny tiny bit fell flat. I do think it has something to do with me feeling that some parts were kind of dragged and rushed. Like the parts that I wanted more of were not given time to be cultivated. It could also be because of the lull brought in by the push and pull conflict that these two have. But I can assure that the story was able to regain its pace. It took an interesting and exciting turn that you’d just want to finish the rest off.
Mouse is probably my favorite character in this book. Not only Mouse managed to throw Madeleine from one awkward situation to another (which most of the times made me giggle) but he actually played a rather big role in story. Somewhat a match maker. He definitely made up for all the sticky moments he placed his owner in. Nice going there, bud. Oh Adam’s Mom, as well! Mr. Boggs too!
You’re up for a romcom? Then better pick The Foxe & The Hound, a good summery and swoony companion.
