ARC REVIEW Risk It All by Katie Ruggle

Risk It All (Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters #2)Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters #2, This was such a fun read. I like that it gives you a brief recap at the beginning of the book to catch you up if you haven't read the first one or just a refresher if you have. Cara is not a skip trace like her other sisters she prefers the research when she's not studying to become a teacher but with the crap going on with her mom and two of her sisters concentrating their efforts on finding her she tries to help out unfortunately she just gets herself into danger. Accused murder Henry Kavenski is the skip she decides will bring in enough money to help support the family, but she soon realizes she is in way over her head and decides to drop it for one a little less violent crime related but even then it turns out not to be as easy as she thinks.

Henry spots Cara her first day of following him and when he catches her trying to break in to his hotel room he thinks she's properly scared off but when she accidentally sits down at his booth in a sleazy bar tracking someone else down he warns her that there is more to that case than she thinks. Following her to return something as inconsequential as a bottle of aspirin may not have been smart but he had to make sure she dropped looking for the other skip. In doing so he might have just put her in more danger.

Cara gets kidnapped and thankfully Henry shows up when he did and saves her even if they end up driving the car off the road and have to trek two day through the cold mountains before they get to a town all the while dodging bad guys. Overall, it was a great read. I loved the twist at the end, I was hoping it would be something like that and I'm glad the story worked out the way it did. Katie Ruggle is an auto buy for me as soon as I see the paperback in the store it goes in my cart. I always enjoy her characters, Cara is sweet and stronger than she thinks, Henry is a strong silent type (my favorite). Ruggle ties humor in so well with the action. The entire story was enjoyable.

10 hours and 41 minutes


He's tall. He's dark. He's brutally handsome.... And he may be her only hope.


Kit Jernigan despairs of ever fitting in with her new tight-knit K9 unit - they've been through too much to welcome a stranger. So when a killer strikes, it's a fight to convince her fellow officers to trust her long enough to catch the woman she knows is responsible. She can't do it on her own. What she needs most is a partner: local fire spotter Wesley March.


Wes knows in his heart that Kit is right, and he's willing to leave his lonely tower to help her prove it. But the more time they spend together, the hotter the fire smolders...and the more danger they're in. A member of the K9 unit's inner circle is determined to have her revenge - no matter who gets burned in the process.


This time, it's personal.




Barnes & Noble





Through the Fire is book four in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series by Katie Ruggle.


I’ve enjoyed the audiobooks for this series. Each novel brings us a new couple to fall in love with and keeps the previous characters in the story.


We are treated to the small town of Monroe and it’s tough men and women who live in and around it as they deal with the troubles from outside forces that come their way. The author has weaved an ongoing plot arc around the women who end up in this town and who are hiding from organizations that want them dead. In Through the Fire the author twists this idea around in that it’s not the heroine on the run, but a new female K9 police officer Kit Jernigan who is about to get involved in the happens in Monroe and her love interest, Wes March, a nerdy, somewhat awkward, but handsome fire watcher.


This tale picks up shortly after Survive the Night. We are treated to action, suspense, and geeky moments. Kit’s first meet with Wesley is a bit awkward and then she is soon meeting her fellow officers Theo, Hugh, and Otto. This meet kicks off her instincts and she knows something is off.


The suspenseful plot that started in Run to Ground with Jules and her siblings is wrapped up here. Sam stole my heart in book one as did all the kids, but here we get to spend more time with him as Kit helps him to train a dog.


The romance was a slow sweet burn. Wes is such a sweet man, if not a little awkward. When Kit and Wes interacted they made me grin. I will say Ruggle did surprise me with the ending. I never saw it coming. I also loved the HEA and that this group of men and women all becoming good friends.


Narration: Callie Beaulieu has been the narrator for this series. She’s done a stellar job with the voices, capturing the emotions, and building up the suspense. I’d recommend the audiobooks for the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit.


**Note: I did win a complementary paperback ARC copy, but deiced to listen to the audio from my library instead.


Rated: 4 Stars

ARC REVIEW In Her Sights by Katie Ruggle

In Her Sights (Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters, #1)Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters #1, new series centered on a family run all female bail recovery business. The Pax girls, all five of them, run the business out of their run down Victorian home while their mother unfortunately lives with them, off of them is more appropriate. I so enjoyed this book, it's Katie Ruggles usual style, lots of action with romance and humor. Third person POV but it stays with Molly Pax, it doesn't alternate between characters like her previous books have. I liked that change, normally I am a noisy reader I like knowing everything but this added a certain feel to it that I found I quite enjoyed.

Molly Pax has always been the responsible one, she has been more mother to her younger sisters than their actual mother. Molly, Felicity, and Charlie mainly do the footwork as the bounty hunters while Norah sticks to research and backup, Cara helps out when needed but she's also a full time college student. Everything has been going smoothly until their mother gets arrested, again, only this time it's a big deal and she made bail using the house as collateral. The sleazebag who posted their mother's bail is now threatening to manipulate things so he can take away their house, unless they go after a particularly dangerous skip, Sonny. With no way out it Molly agrees splitting man power between finding their mother who has disappeared and finding Sonny. Molly teams up with John Carmondy a fellow bounty hunter to track down Sonny. What makes Sonny dangerous is his fondness to explosives as Molly and John find out multiple times.   

John and Molly have a rivalry going on at least Molly thinks so but John does it so he can spend time with her. Molly is paranoid and thinks John just wants to hire her or steal her skips, she doesn't believe her sisters when they tell her John likes her. Molly doesn't see it until she's working with him side by side. Getting to know him while working so closely together has her feeling going from confused to all in. As they get closer and closer to finding Sonny the more of a mess they seem to find themselves in and her sisters are having no luck in finding their mother.

Overall, this was a fun read another great read from Katie Ruggle. I loved the characters each sister has a unique personality that is sure to make their book just as entertaining as this one. You can't have a Ruggle book without a dog in this case the doggo is a great pyrenees named Warrant and he's a big ball of lovable fluff.  Book releases March 26, 2019

Quick Contemporary Romance
On His Watch (Search and Rescue) - Katie Ruggle

On His Watch by Katie Ruggle is a contemporary romance.  This is a quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Ruggle has given us a well-written book and furnished it with a delightful cast of characters.  Derek is on the fire department dive team.  Artemis is an elementary school teacher.  Derek and his team leader arrive at the school to give a presentation to Artie's class.  Madness and mayhem arrived right behind them.  Artie and Derek's story has enough drama, humor, sizzle, suspense and action to keep any reader happy.  I enjoyed reading On His Watch and look forward to my next book by Katie Ruggle.  On His Watch is book 0.5 of the Search And Rescue Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Release Week Revew! Through the Fire (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit #4) Katie Ruggle!
Through the Fire - Katie Ruggle



Kit Jernigan despairs of ever fitting in with her new tight-knit K9 unit. They've been through too much to open their arms to a stranger―and as mysterious fires begin raging across Monroe, she can't convince them to trust her long enough to catch the woman she knows is responsible.

Wesley March, local fire spotter, knows Kit is right, and he's willing to help her prove it. But the more time they spend together, the closer they get...and the more danger they're in. A member of the K9 unit's inner circle is determined to get revenge―no matter who gets burned in the process.
This time, it's personal.


Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit Series:

Run to Ground (Book 1)
On the Chase (Book 2)
Survive the Night (Book 3)
Through the Fire (Book 4)



She knows who is responsible for the mysterious fires raging across Monroe, but Kit convince the locals to trust her. Wesley March is willing to help her prove she’s right.


Strong, convincing characters easily draw readers into this thrilling and explosive romantic suspense that keeps readers holding their breath in anticipation of what will happen next. The romance between Kit and Wesley is sweet and charming as both seem a bit hesitant in moving forward but the chemistry between sizzles with electrical intensity pulling them closer. Wesley is a bit of a nerd with some social issues that easily captivates readers while Kit is more outgoing and take charge which proves that opposites does attract sometimes and ensures that readers keep a smile on their face. There is quite a few emotional concerns that have to be overcome as well as all the danger surrounding them which makes this romance quite interesting.


The fast paced plot flows smoothly from beginning to end with lots of exciting danger, adrenaline pumping thrills and surprising twists that keeps readers guessing as well as ensuring that there is never a dull moment to be found. The well-developed story and characters is full of vivid details that make it easy for readers to connect and become caught up in each and every aspect as well guaranteeing that readers can picture each and every scene which in return means readers become unable to put the book down. I was certainly one that couldn’t put it down and I fell hard for Wes and his robot cat and I really like the explosive final battle with the bad guy as it had such realistic events taking place.

A fan of the old adage “write what you know”, Katie Ruggle lived in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains until her family lured her back to Minnesota. When she’s not writing, Katie rides horses, trains her three dogs, cross-country skis (badly) and travels to warm places where she can scuba dive. A graduate of the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. A fan of anything that makes her feel like a bad-ass, she has trained in Krav Maga, boxing and gymnastics.
