ARC Review: On the Chase by Katie Ruggle

On the Chase
Author: Katie Ruggle
Series: Rocky Mountain K9 Unit (Book 2)
Publication: Sourcebooks Casablanca (September 5, 2017)

Description: Injured in the line of duty,
His orders are simple:
Stay alive.
But when a frightened woman bursts into his life, Hugh and his K9 companion have no choice but to risk everything to keep her safe.

The sole witness to a horrific crime, Kaylee Ramay flees to the Colorado Rockies to start a new life. There she becomes Grace, a dog kennel employee desperately trying to avoid attention-especially from dangerously attractive K9 Officer Hugh Murdoch.

Because Hugh is tall, dark...and nothing but trouble.

Hugh is anxious to get back in the field after an act of heroism left him warming the bench.

Until then, he and his K9 partner Lexi spend their hours teasing the town's mysterious newcomer. But when their simmering attraction is nearly cut short by a sniper's bullet, Hugh's mystery woman must come clean about the secrets she keeps...

Or both of them will pay the price.

My Thoughts: Kaylee Ramay is on the run from a dangerous criminal mastermind and finds herself in Monroe, Colorado, with a new name, no home, and no job. Now Grace Robinson, she finds herself living with another family also on the run.

Grace finds a job working at a kennel and cleaning up dog poo which is quite a change from her previous position as a fund raiser for a college. In Monroe, she meets Hugh Murdoch who is a police officer on medical leave until he heels from a gunshot wound to his thigh. Hugh is bored and decides that uncovering Grace's secrets would be just the thing to fill in his time until he can go back on duty.

Grace is scared but strong. She also quickly fits in and finds Monroe and Hugh a good fit for her. Hugh is a complete goofball. His care-free, talkative, and rather annoying personality hides a serious and smart police officer though. When the two of them suffer a number of close calls and near fatal accidents it isn't clear whether Hugh or Grace is the actual target. When Grace shares her secret and trusts Hugh, they figure out why they are being targeted.

This story is packed with action laced with a good amount of humor. It also has a nicely hot relationship between Grace and Hugh. Fans of romantic suspense won't want to miss this second book in the Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit series.

Favorite Quote:
She didn't even blink. "No. This is a stupid plan."

"It's an excellent plan, and we're missing all the action."

"Missing action, when we're talking about action involving a dangerous, drug-toting motorcycle gang, is actually a good thing."
I received this one in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
