    I'm absolutely astounded as to why this book currently has high ratings. As someone who absolutely adores a good paranormal romance and nearly anything to do with foxes, I was so excited to see this book appear on my Facebook newsfeed as a recommended read. After reading decent reviews, despite how new the book appears, I delved in to what I hoped would be an awesome shifter romance.

As someone who absolutely adores a good paranormal romance and nearly anything to do with foxes, I was so excited to see this book appear on my Facebook newsfeed as a recommended read. After reading decent reviews, despite how new the book appears, I delved in to what I hoped would be an awesome shifter romance. Instead, I got a very elementary read that I could only force myself 10% of the way through without being disgusted with the level of of inconsistency and overwhelming grammatical errors. This reads more like a fan-fiction written by a high-school student than a book published by a professional author. Constant overuse of character names...improbable and quite frankly, ridiculous plot points that the author wants you to believe...and don't get me started on the childlike descriptions of nearly everything.The book opens to the heroine attempting to break in to a building in order to steal a potion that will give her sister her powers back after they were taken from her. Despite having no magical ability herself, the heroine consistently points out how she would do anything for her sister regardless if she must break the law to do so (though she struggles when taking the potion, wanting to take it herself despite clearly stating she would never do so within the first few pages). Interesting prospect and hopefully incoming epic break-in sequence. But no, suddenly the main character has the most impossible of items to assist her in her break-in fondly referred to by the author as "tech". This "tech" given to her by her sister before she lost her abilities, is so over-the-top and outrageously unbelievable that I was exasperated with how stupidly easy it made everything. Kenzie (the main character, whose name is issued nearly every other sentence) has a watch that shows her the building, everyone in it, scans to show if tech or magic is being used with the help of "witch balls of doom", etc. She also has a magic-enhanced headband that keeps her hair from falling out and leaving DNA or her "essence" anywhere (and the heroine complains that it does not hide her bright red hair...like...it can literally do everything but that?? Come on...), tech in her ears to enhance her hearing and blah blah blahShe proceeds to use a magic device that unlocks ANY lock to get into a vault where an Alpha shifter stores all his most precious items and just so happens to keep them labled. Literally, every shelf is labled "legal potions" or "illegal potions" or whatever else and is perfectly organized so that Kenzie can find the exact potion, labled, that she needs. Quote from the book: "Thank goodness the tiger was organized. She read the labels and went down in alphabetical order to 'potions.' Some were illegal and some not, but they were all clearly marked. Kenzie went through each of the potions on the illegal shelf until she found what she was looking for." Really?!If this weren't absolutely ridiculous enough, suddenly three naked fox shifters are in the vault with her. And boy, does the author like to remind you how much they are naked. In fact, it is said so much that I myself was reminded how much nudity must have enthralled me as a 13 year old. Word-for-word from the author after each one is described naked: "And they were all naked." We know!!! The dialogue between her and the fox shifters is beyond cringe-worthy and to top it all off, suddenly the author is using big-kid language to allude to incoming smut despite having some of the most unprofessional writing skills I've read in quite awhile. Example: "Then the first fox took it from her and swept her a very d*ck-swinging bow". This line used after some other language that turns what could be a sexy scene into something just...vulgar.At this point, I just couldn't do it anymore. I don't know if I've ever been exasperated with a book so "highly reviewed". Mayhap the author just has a lot of good friends. I wish they would have told her how much this book flopped before she put it online.I'll throw out some other things I found ridiculous: -There is a Council of Paranormals. Super creative.-She enters a quiet room, SO QUIET that she cannot even hear "air whistling through the vents" and yet she can hear computers humming.-She has parkour training...and mentions this as she vaults over cubicles in an office to make her escape rather than just...you know, running.-She also happens to know coding. Because that needs to be stressed. In fact, I won't be shocked if she knows sign language, owns a coat that makes her fly, or is the hottest girl in town. Help me.-She immediately recognizes the shifters as foxes because of her nose. That little gem is never explained.And that's it. First review I've left on goodreads because someone needed to say something. DNF and you won't either. There are much better and much more well-written shifter romances out there.

What follows is hilarious as they all outfox one another in constant battle while essentially falling in love at the same time. Just as things reach a nice peak we get the cliff hanger of an ending which sets up book two quite nicely and I personally will be dying to get my hands on it. If you like shifter RH romance you really should try this one. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

During a heist to retrieve a potion from one of the strongest alphas for the sake of her sister, our heroine encounters mercenary foxes, who steals her stolen potion from her. Quickly turns out that those three foxes are her mates and vice-versa. The characters are likeable, from the heroine and her harem, to the secondary characters, such as her sister and grandma. The heroine and her triad have a long history of pain and suffering, something which bonds them. The characters appear strong. There is no insta-love, at the same none are denying their attraction to each other, like in some other ridiculous novels, instead, it has the perfect middle ground. The novel thus focuses on this revelation, as each character has to figure out what it means for themselves. The novel also has an appropriate pace, as it is not too slow when it comes to the relationship development, while not being an insta-love story. But it also focuses more on Finnick, leaving what I guess is more room for development for the other two in the next books. But no worries, there is also more going on than just hormones, as the heroine and her three foxes team up to take down the main villain. Not to reveal too much, it suffices to say that the plot and action are carefully interwoven so that it appears natural and effortless that they work together, far from feeling forced. Therefore, it also has a solid storyline to support the romance, leaving room for story progress. Personally, I look forward to how they plan to take down the villain, considering the move he made in the last part of the book. Overall, it is a solid first instalment, as it reveals enough to garner attention, interest and build up sympathy for the characters, but leaves out enough to want to read the second instalment.

    Great writing, witches, sexy shifters, revenge and a heroine with a bit of an edge, what’s not to like about For Fox Sake.

Her characters are vivid and varied and she pens them with a confidence that comes through when reading her work.Kenzie has a bit of a sad past but she is confident in who she is and is very likeable, her ability to survive no matter what while keeping her humour and wit is commendable. The three fox shifters are just what I’d imagine fox shifters to be like if they were to be sexy and mischievous. As with Spotted Her First, the side characters are just as intriguing and well developed as the main characters. And, having all her shifter books set in the same world means that familiar names pop up, there’s even an appearance of Piper and her Leopard mates as well as Eisheth, the friendly demon.This is a medium burn RH with fated mates, so things move fairly fast in the emotions department - and the sexy stuff too. As with her other book, Dean deals with some sensitive issues but For Fox Sake has a little more in the way of heavier subjects and content. There’s not a cliffhanger ending per se, but this first book is definitely leading into the next one with most things left unfinished. I’m eagerly awaiting the next book.

    I was looking forward to For Fox Sake after reading Spotted Her First, by Emma Dean. I’m such a sucker for a strong female character, and Kenzie is so different than Piper, but she is damaged and strong and amazing anyway. I really like that Emma hasn’t forced the relationships in a short period of time. What’s more, I love that all of the characters are damaged in some way. It makes them seem so much more real, because no one’s perfect.

    I absolutely love this book. This was the first book I've read by this author, and I was not disappointed. It was such a creatively written world with in depth characters. I cannot wait to see how her relationships with with her mates develop. I am so glad that the author decided Kenzie and her mates needed more than one book. Impatiently waiting for the next one. Definitely give this book and author a try.

    I loved this! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and these characters and cannot wait for more from them. Kenzie’s character I adore - she was born without powers to a prominent witch family and put through all sorts of torture to “draw out” her magic. After her grandmother put a stop to it, the remainder of her family treats her as less than or just ignores her - with the exception of her sister. Their relationship is sister goals and I appreciate the author did something different than the jealous I loved this!

Kenzie has become strong and a force to be reckoned with in her own right, despite her “failings” as a witch. And the guys, oh the guys! I love each of them - the brooding, Alpha a-holes! I enjoyed the peek beneath the surface the author provided on each of them and hope to continue to learn more about them as the series progresses. Absolutely recommend - can’t wait for the next one!

    Amazingly well written!This is the first book I've read from this author and, based on this book, I'll definitely be checking out her other works. For Fox Sake is funny, action-packed, emotional, and sexy as hell. The characters are well defined and develop well throughout the story. The book is also extremely creative in blending magic and technology for innovative uses. Really looking forward to book 2!

    Loved it!! I read a lot and it is always wonderful to find a new series like none other. This one is the beginning of a new series. There is a little of everything. Family that loves and some that don’t, curses, an amazing kick butt heroine, three hot as hell fox shifters and lots of adventure and action. The relationships of the main character are just amazingly written. I can’t wait for the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of the book.

    Give me more!What a fantastic read! I absolutely love the tenacity of the FMC - she is the ultimate badass amongst a world of supernaturals who would rather see her dead. Her fox mates are undoubtedly “foxy”, tricky, and perfect for her. Her unyielding loyalty to her younger but “preferred” sister is one of her greatest character traits and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Loved itWhat happens when a magic less witch is the mate of three foxes? I loved this. The dynamic between the group is exciting. I love how crafty and cunning the fox shifters are and how perfectly Kenzie fits in with them. The world that's been created is consuming and I would give this more than 5 stars if I could.

    I'm working on writing my review now, and like with all my other reviews, it will be posted here after it goes live on my blog. I will say that I think the foxes in this story are some of my favorite shifters that I've read, they just seem so fun and mischievous, and almost remind me of Fred and George Weasley in a way.

    This was amazing, I absolutely LOVE Kenzie! She’s seriously badass and she’s definitely my spirit animal, cocky, flirty, dangerous, devious, extremely smart, sexy and damaged. The “chaos” is equally sexy, dangerous, dark, smart cocky, flirty, and mischievous. This was a fun book to read and I’m seriously in love with it, can’t wait for the next book!

    3.5 ...I did love this storyline. A badass heroine, a triad of sexy and witty fox shifters, plenty of page turning action. Angst, suspense, love... overall I really enjoyed the flow of this book. I only lowered the rating because there was quite a bit of unnecessary redundancy in explaining characters and plot points. I am still looking forward to reading the next installment!

    Loved the story!I love loved Kenzie and her triad of foxes. Not to mentioned her love and devotion to her sister. The world building of the witches and shifters is great and the villain, Brad, a faceless danger. I still wonder about the tiger shifter and if he was being truthful with the mate bond. Cannot wait for the next book!

    In the same world as Spotter Her First, For Fox Sake is about Kenzie. She is on a mission to get a potion. She just may meet her mates on said mission. Kenzie will do anything for her sister, which makes me love her more, and i thoroughly enjoyed her first meeting with Hunter, Ash and Finnick. With a great plot and great characters this is going to be a fun series.
