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.

I can always count on R.S. Grey to deliver a fun, laugh-out-loud rom-com, and she doesn’t disappoint with her newest release, The Foxe & the Hound! This is the classic “pretend to be in a relationship” trope, and R.S. Grey did a fabulous job with it. It’s over the top, hilarious, and adorably awkward – I had such a fun time reading it!

To say Madeleine’s life is a Hot Mess would be an understatement – she’s a real estate agent who’s only sold one house over the course of the year (and it was to her brother and his wife) so she’s currently on probation, she’s way behind on rent and has been bribing her landlord for more time with homemade cookies, and the dog she adopted that she thought would be the size of a mouse (hence, the name Mouse), is growing to be the size of a house. Oh, and the hot new vet is not a fan of hers because she let Mouse maul him and get mud all over his suit. But he’s new to town, so many he needs a new house that she should help him purchase?

Dr. Adam Foxe has just moved to Texas after leaving his cheating fiancée, but he’s not happy to be there. The weather is awful, his mother is nagging on him to move on, and some rude lady let her dog ruin his suit and make him late for work. But who should happen to show up as his first client of the day but the aforementioned rude lady, Madeleine? They get off on the wrong foot, but Adam sees an opportunity he takes immediate advantage of – have Madeleine pose as his fake girlfriend to get his mother off his back and he’ll let her help him buy a house. Win-win, right?

She wasn’t supposed to charm them; she was just supposed to be a warm body. I needed a living, breathing female to get my family off my back, and now she’s wooed them all and probably made my life ten times worse. I won’t hear the end of Madeleine and Mouse. Even the alliteration adds to my annoyance at this point.

Things don’t go as planned when they spend more time together and the tension between them rises. Adam is vehemently against getting into another relationship, especially so soon… but maybe Madeleine is the exception. What ensues are hilariously awkward moments, witty banter, and a healthy dose of one giant, fluffy Bernese Mountain dog. It’s a rom-com with an adorable dog – need I say more? If you’ve loved R.S. Grey’s previous books and are in the mood for something quick, funny, and light-hearted, I highly recommend this book!
