The Foxhole Court seems weird when you first start reading it. I’m not into sports so when I saw this was sport based I wasn’t delighted. But….exy is a fake sport and somehow that makes it okay. I was totally into the game and interested in all the rules and it’s history and stuff. So that was unexpected but I rolled with it.
There is a lot going on in these books and I am obsessed. There’s sports, the mafia (pretty random but here we are), death, violence, mental health issues, some serious wit and sassiness, and a killer friendship group. Not to mention the serious family issues most of these foxes have going on. The premise of the book seems like it wouldn’t work but it does! It really, really does. This book is full of drama and I really appreciate that.
The characters and the relationships are great. I don’t want to give anything away but Wymack’s relationship with everyone is the best. I love that man. And the relationship between the Monsters and the Upper Class Men and all the internal relationships within these seperate groups….love it.
And the Mafia? Yeah, love that. Adds to the drama and it really is the basis of the story. Neil Josten is the narrater and also my adopted son. Some of the things he says and think just really speak to me. Here’s an example:
I have a bit of an attitude problem.
And Nicky? For the most part I love him (as long as I forget about the first trip to Edens). And I love Renee and Dan and Matt (he’s great) and Allison and Aaron (even if I hate him too) and Andrew (he belongs in his own little category really).
The ebook was a random late night purchase for me (it was 99p at the time) and I’m honestly surprised that I love it as much as I do.
