He lost his K9 partner.
He almost lost his will to live.
But when a killer obsessed with revenge targets a beautiful woman on the run, Theo and his new K9 companion will do whatever it takes to save Jules before they lose their last chance at a happily ever after...
So I was really enjoying this book. It was fast paced, I LOVED the dog and the kids were not annoying. It dealt with really tough subjects but I liked the way those issues were handled (except for one). There was not much romance - very slow burn (I think only one sex scene in the book) but I was still enjoying it. The suspense was awesome. Right up until the every end. I listened to it on audible and I looked down and there were 4 mins left and the ...more
This is my first taste at Ms. Ruggle and I enjoyed. This novel is a nice start to the series and a good introduction to the characters.
Jules Jackson has run out of time and needs to get her younger siblings out of the cruel clutches of relatives. With a little help from an unexpected source she and the kids go on the run and end up in the town of Monroe. It’s a quaint town hiding away in the Rocky Mountains, but it ...more
I really liked this book. I have been wanting to read Katie Ruggle for a while and since this was the beginning of a new series, I thought that this would be a good place to start. The fact that this is a series about a K9 unit also really appealed to me since I am a huge dog lover. I was hooked to the story pretty much right away and was really wondering how everything would work out. This was a really exciting read that kept me ...more
However, it took me a while to get through the book and for the most part I was disappointed. So what went wrong? I ...more
Jules Jackson has just moved to Monroe Colorado with her four younger siblings. She actually kidnapped them to save them from her horrible stepmother, (seriously horrible!). With new identities and a guarantee from a shifty character that her stepmother wouldn’t be looking for them “or else” she’s sets off hoping to start their lives anew. When ...more
It's official. I'm addicted.
I really liked this book but there was a lot of it completely unresolved. But to be honest I'm not irritated by it, a little bugged but I'm also seeing this to be a pattern in Katie's books...
I requested this book and didn’t get approved. I was slightly bummed about it. I then requested book 2 and with a shrug I thought I wouldn’t get it. Colour me surprised that I did. Now I need any old excuse to buy a book and this was the perfect one. Seeing as I have book 2 I just have to buy book 1. I felt like reading a paperback so I did.
After a run of bad luck but with some good fortune thrown in Jules takes things to the extreme to protect her brothers and her sister. They start a new in ...more
Jules is risking everything for her 4 siblings and all she needs to do is keep a low profile. It's kind of laughable how she catches the attention of a cop her first day at work. Theo is immediately ...more
There were parts that Katie would build up, but then she would leave/change topics. I would be stuck thinking...'so what happened?'
I'll probably continue with the series because the action is pretty good.
First Date: Ruggle hooked me from the first chapter as Jules gathers up her siblings and theyembark on a new life far from the past they are trying to outrun. They move to a dilapidatedfarmhouse in the rugged town of Monroe, located in the Colorado Rockies where Jules accepts a job as a waitress at the local diner.Theo Bosco, an officer with the local police force, is grieving the loss of hisformer K9 companion and hishuman partner. He lost one to cancer and one to ...more
Having thoroughly enjoyed this authors Search and Rescue series I really looked forward to getting my hands on this book. Still set in beautiful Colorado but this time it's the K-9 unit that the author tries to capture.
The story really begins with Jules a young woman who is desperate to get her younger siblings away from her stepmothers abusuve control. When I say desperate I don't use the word needlessly because Jules has been working for very shady characters indeed , the sort ...more
This is the first book in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series where we are introduced to a close team of cops and their K9 partners. Theo recently lost both his K9 partner and his mentor and with guilt and anger sitting heavily on him he doesn’t want anyone in his life. Especially not the new and beautiful waitress at the local diner. Jules will do anything to protect her much younger brothers and sister… so, she kidnaps them. Now in hiding from their abusive parents they are starting a ...more
I have no idea what happend in this book. Important things weren't explained. We get told certain details, but not the whole story. It was messy.
And at the end Heroine and Hero just say "I love you" to each other and that's it. No talking about the future, about their dreams, about them. She even hides a deep secret from him, why she's on the run. And he just ...more
If you were attracted by the dog, the do play a part in the story, but it's not about them. There are ...more
Although you must suspend reality to accept the far-fetched plot events, Run to Ground is an enjoyable romance with really engaging characters. Jules Jackson is on the run and using an alias, along with her four siblings, who she stole away from an abusive step parent. She is a fierce and tender mama bear to her sibling-brood. Theo Boscoe is the snarly police officer who at first terrifies her, then rescues her, and then steals her heart. She finds herself dangerously attracted to Theo, ...more
(view spoiler)[As mentioned in my previous progress update, we get flashbacks to a week and less prior. Start the book a week earlier and tell the story. Flashing back to four days prior is ridiculous.
The heroine. She laughs, wants to laugh, almost laughs, chokes back a laugh, or tries not to laugh at everything. Nervous laughter, surprised laughter, genuine laughter, hysterical laughter. I've known a few people ...more
Err... the hero?
Ah, yes... not as much. At first, Theo's social manners came out as sorely lacking, and even if he kind of grew on the heroine as well as on the reader, the first bad impression stayed a bit too long.
Jules, the heroine, was a much more interesting character. Timid and awkward in appearance, she was capable of the most courageous actions for the sake of her siblings. Her ...more
Theo's a cop - with depression. i thought Ruggle did a good job fleshing out Theo's issues. He was a miserable person which made him an ...more
The main male character, Theo, was a little hard for me to warm up to at first. He was very demanding and moody. I understood why he was acting that way, but ...more
This was a really good story and beginning of the series. If you've read Ruggle's "Search & Rescue" series, then you wont be surprised to find that while the romance ends happily at the end of this story, there appears to be an overlying series storyline that probably wont be completed until all the books are complete (although I can't say positively).
Also, the story actually ends at page 351/408 (the 74% park on my Kindle). After that, there's some deleted scenes from Run to Ground ...more
It seems like there are so many loose plot threads that did not get wrapped up, so Run to Ground gets a knock for that.
Once I saw the cover for Run to Ground, I knew I had to read it. I mean, look at that shepherd. That happy K9, with his happy wolfish grin. Viggy, sadly, was not quite so carefree in the story. Both Viggy and his handler, Theo, are battling PTSD, and it puts them both in danger many times. I can’t understand why that sad, traumatized dog was expected to ...more
