A full-length STANDALONE romantic comedy from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey.
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.
Wow! Just WOW! R.S. Grey continues to blow me away with her romantic comedies!! This just may be my favorite yet!! Yes, I realize I say that a lot when it comes to this brilliant writer… but I just can’t help myself! Every book just keeps getting better and better!!
Madeleine is basically a more fun, more adorable and more entertaining version of me. She’s clumsy, silly, quite blunt at times, and outright adorable! I fell in love with her instantly. She’s the exact character that I love reading about so much. I’ll take a clumsy, quirky, adorable character over a “perfect” one any day! Madeleine is a real estate, though, admittedly, not a very good one. She’s only sold one house in the past several months, and that was to her brother and sister-in-law. Her boss puts her on probation and basically insists that she prove herself, or her job will be terminated.
Adam is the new guy in town. He’s recently moved to the small town of Hamilton from Chicago, after suffering a pretty bad breakup. He’s a successful vet in town, and a gorgeous one at that, so you can imagine the attention he gets from the local ladies. But Adam isn’t thinking about a relationship. After being cheated on by his ex-fiance, he’s dealing with the aftermath and dating is the last thing on his mind.
As you can probably guess, Madeleine and Adam meet… and that’s where alllllll of the fun begins. These two have the most adorable chemistry, silly banter, and outright quirky encounters together! Every time they’re within a few feet of each other, I was laughing at their antics. I just adored these two together from the very beginning. And I also must mention the slow burn… but it’s surely slow, and it’s surely a super-hot burn! It takes a while for these two to connect physically… but once they do, look out!! It’s steamy, hot, and heavy from that point forward. Talk about the swoons!!
“That kiss was nothing – pfft, less than nothing.”
“Nothing?” he asks, sidling every closer.
“Less than nothing? Huh.”
My eyes have to be as round as saucers. I’m scared of what he’s capable of – or maybe I’m curious.
When it comes to writing romantic comedies such as this one, R.S. Grey is the Queen. In my eyes, she can do no wrong. I’ve loved absolutely every book I’ve read of hers, and each new one I read I claim to be my new favorite. They just keep getting better and better!! If you enjoy romantic stories like this, filled with the perfect amount of swooning, off-the-charts chemistry, silly banter, and awww moments, this is one you won’t want to miss!
