Review ~ ON THE CHASE by Katie Ruggle

On the Chase (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit, #2)
by: Katie Ruggle
Series: Rocky Mountain K9 Unit
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 5, 2017
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca

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.

On the Chase is the second book in Katie Ruggle’s Rocky Mountain K9 Unit Series.  It picks up right where the first book, Run to Ground leaves off.  It can technically be read as a standalone but I think that you would feel more connected to the main characters and the town if you read the series from the beginning.

As with the first book, the heroine has escaped to the Colorado Rockies to avoid being killed. Kaylee Ramay leaves her perfect life behind as well as her name.  She becomes Grace Robinson and moves in with Jules, the heroine from Run to Ground.  Grace also can’t seem to stay away from the inquisitive eye of K9 Officer Hugh Murdoch and his dog Lexie.  From the moment they meet, Grace and Hugh take shots at each other like kids on a playground. That banter eventually turns into a burning desire for each other.  The problem is that someone keeps trying to kill Hugh, and Grace thinks it’s because of her.  Hugh isn’t the type to back down from a fight although he is currently on medical leave due to a gunshot wound to his leg.  Of course, he and Grace will get into several life-threatening situations before it’s all over.

Hugh and Grace are perfect for each other in the strangest way.  They get under each other’s skin.  Hugh doesn’t hesitate to risk his life for Grace and she is overwhelmed by that considering the short time that they have known each other.  In addition, it’s heartwarming how the other members of the K9 Unit band together to help.  Grace easily finds an instant family and feelings that she didn’t expect to have.  Their attraction is intense and so is a lot of the action.  I truly enjoyed On the Chase.  It was better than the first.  I am looking forward to the third book, Survive the Night.  I just hope that Katie Ruggle can top herself again.
