After falling in love with the tiny puppy she chose to name Mouse at the pound, and taking him home, Madeline quickly realizes that he's going to grow much larger than she'd been lead to believe, and that keeping him, and doing right by him is going to be a challenge.
Adam Foxe, who manages to have two encounters with Madeline and Mouse in the one day, first as Mouse's victim and only shortly thereafter as his vet, has a very different challenge on his hands. On the one hand, after the events that led him to abandon his home and practice in Chicago, he's got absolutely no interest in getting back into the dating scene anytime soon. On the other hand, he can't seem to stop thinking about the brunette who's in over her head with the big dog with a little name, nor can he seem to stop running into her. On the other hand, his endearingly interfering mother is insisting that he bring the girlfriend that he just made up on the spot to the family barbecue on the weekend.
Yes, that's three hands and that's just a tiny hint as to how muddled and confused this wonderful story can get.
The thing about wanting something and not wanting it at the same time is that it inevitably sends off mixed messages because they're not really mixed at all, just overlapping and contradictory, and R.S. Grey's adorably delightful romantic comedy is dominated by two characters who aren't entirely sure what they want or when they want it and time and again confuse not just each other, but even themselves about what's going on between them.
Even allowing for having to spend a few hours at work, I sprinted through this book in a matter of hours and, for the most part, had a smile on my face all the way through.
There were moments that were tense and moments that were contemplative, moments that were sad, and moments that were beautifully intimate, but for the most part, the most memorable parts, were just delightfully funny, so much so that on several occasions I felt compelled to read excerpts out to the wife to share the mirth.
So if you're in the need for a pick-me-up. Something to lighten your load and brighten your day (or night) I heartily recommend this book. It certainly brightened my day
I adored Madeline in Anything You Can Do and was begging for Rachel to write her story NOW! Girls, let me tell you, she did disappoint!!! As we already know, Madeline is a bit of a mess. Let's just say a dark cloud has been following her around for the last 5 years or so, raining on her everyday parade. Although she is a pretty upbeat individual, a person can only take so much.
"I didn't plan to be this dysfunctional at 27, but dysfunctionality has a way of creeping up on you. One second, you're 22, wrapping up your undergraduate degree from a top business school, and then suddenly, you're sitting alone in your car at 27, wondering how five years slipped through your fingers without so much as a blink."
Madeline hasn't found her niche in real estate quite yet, and if she doesn't sell a property pretty quick, her boss is cutting her lose. But it's not just her professional life that's been stagnant, Madeline hasn't been having much luck in the romance department either. Despite her best efforts I might add. So it's just her luck that her beast of a "puppy" just molested the only viable bachelor in the county.
"Today, I think I finally see why my mother adoringly refers to me as her 'lost cause'. "
Meet Adam Foxe....perfect name by the way, Rachel. Adam just moved to Texas from Chicago to be closer to his family, but we start to unveil the true motivation to leave Chicago was something much more personal. Despite his best efforts, he keeps running into the crazy, uncontrollable and sexy brunette and her spastic dog.
"She has an uncanny way of grating on my nerves, and the fact that she just keeps popping up is getting ridiculous."
So obviously, Adam isn't a fan of Madeline. In fact, the beginning of their relationship is pretty rocky. But this is a small town and two keep running into each other and spending more and more time together. Adam's very upfront about him not wanting to date anyone at this time, crushing Madeline's ego. Despite this, they continue to see each other as friends.
Adam and Madeline are very hot and cold throughout the first half of this book. Now, this might drive some people crazy, but I just couldn't wait to get to the bottom of it! I absolutely loved how Madeline's character is depicted as a complete mess despite that she has the best intentions and a kind heart. The girl has no luck whatsoever. Grey also write the best friendships, and Madeline and Daisy's friendship is fantastic!
There's so much in this book that I want to gush over, but don't want to spoil! I will say, once their romance started heating up, I found their relationship sexy but also incredibly sweet! I also love how Grey puts these little nuggets of information in her stories, always skimming below the surface, just to pop up at the perfect time to tie everything all together. Absolute perfection!
You guys have to pick this one up for the summer! It's perfect, fun, sexy, summertime read that will leave you laughing and smiling along!

Cute easy storyline. Witty dialogue. Characters who you liked.
My only gripe was that I wish that actual relationship between the two of them was more developed. There wasn't a lot of chemistry, and I wish that aspect had been a bit more developed and intense.
Overall, a nice beach read.
After a bad break-up, Adam Foxe has just moved from Chicago to Hamilton, Texas to be close to his family and take over as town veterinarian. Sitting on a park bench lamenting his new small town life a huge dog covered in mud bounds towards him and literally knocks him over... Enter the dogs owner Madeleine. She's a bundle of energy a 27 year old real estate agent, living in a run-down apartment with her over-sized adorable dog (Mouse!), driving a beat up old car, she is a 'mess' by her own definition.
Being a small town, their paths frequently cross and these two together are HILARIOUS! The witty banter, the antics, the undeniable chemistry all make this a fantastic ride.
Without a doubt R.S Grey knows how to write great RomComs. Her stories are the perfect balance between chaotic fun and yet genuine and sweet as well. I simply adored 'The Foxe and The Hound' would be an understatement, it was the perfect mix of steam, laughs, angst and swoon... 5 Stars +
Sometimes you need a light, happy read just like this one. I loved the thrill and anticipation of waiting to see if Adam and Madeline were going to hook up. They were such lovable characters & I just wanted something good to happen for them.
Adam has just moved from Chicago to Texas after a broken heart & to be closer to his family. After getting plowed down & being very gently mauled by a sexy brunettes dog he just keeps running into her. After being told by his mother that he is to bring a date to a family barbeque the first name to pop into his head is Madeline & thus ensues the escapades & back & forth banter between the two. Adam though is adamant that he is not ready for or looking for a person to share his life with but if that is true why can't he stop thinking about her.
This book is a perfect pick me up book if you want something to get you out of a book funk. It's funny & light & sure to bring a smile or two.
