On the Chase by Katie Ruggle

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.

This is a great second book in this series. I do suggest reading the previous book as there are several characters that show up again from that story and I reference things from book one in this review.

Kaylee finds herself in such a mess. She has to drop everything and run. Her good friend Penny gives her the name of a mystery man who will help her disappear. Kaylee becomes Grace and lives a life that she didn't know she wanted.

Hugh is hurting – physically, he is injured from helping save Jules and her kids. What he's not looking for is someone to fall in love with. He's all about the job. However, now that he sees Theo with Jules, he begins to think that he wants that too. Lexi, his companion for years, is someone he trusts with his life.

When Hugh and Grace meet, it is hate at first sight and hate even more when Hugh opens his mouth. Grace isn't looking to meet anyone and definitely doesn't want to stay in this hidden life. However, the more she's targeted and the more that Hugh saves her, feelings can't help but develop.

I did think that Kaylee/Grace did give her story fairly quickly in the story, which was kind of sad. However, the back and forth banter between Grace and Hugh was hilarious and playful. I really enjoyed this story and can't wait for what comes next.

This book is funny, emotional, and just dangerous enough.

I found this second story in this series to be funny, suspenseful, and the banter between Hugh and Grace/Kaylee made me laugh many times.

Kaylee was living the life – she had her dream job, a nice condo, and living in LA. One night while having dinner with her boyfriend at his uncle's house, she takes a wrong turn and witnesses something that puts her life in danger. Now she is on the run and ends up in Monroe, Colorado. The place where everyone that needs to hide seems to end up.

Hugh Murdoch is a K9 officer with the Monroe Police Department, along with his K9, Lexi, they are on medical leave because Hugh got shot. But he can't stay away from the job and heal. He is ready to go back to work and when he meets Grace, he wants to learn what he can from her because he can tell she is lying. So he will do a background check to find out who she really is.

But there is someone after one of them, is it Hugh or Grace? So Grace has to tell Hugh who she really is and he vows to keep her safe. But who will keep him safe? Will they find out who is after them? Will Hugh and Grace give in to the feeling they have for each other? What happens when they solve the case, will Grace go back to LA?

I am enjoying this series and can't wait for the next one. Katie Ruggle has a way to bring out these K9 officers and their partners that makes the stories great. I hope you give this series a shot and enjoy it as much as I have.
