Injured in the line of duty,
His orders are simple:
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.

Maybe getting shot at and being nearly blown up about four times within a week is a bit over the top. However, it really keeps you to the edge of your seat. So that works for me! Katie has done a great job in putting together a very fast paced story with a hunky cop (alias: Hugh) and a very scared girl, living under a false name to avoid being found by her boyfriend’s mafioso uncle (Grace aka Kaylee).
Enter a cute K9-dog, a lovely family who provides shelter for Grace and a lot of bickering and banter between Hugh and Grace and we have the best combination for a great book.
If you’ve ever seen the Disney movie Aladdin, you probably recognize the scene, in which Aladdin and Yasmine are nearly caught by the guards. They turn to each other and say simultaneously: “They are after me… They are after you???”
This story kind of has the same feeling: both Hugh and Grace are being sought and someone wants to have them to keep quiet. When they are targeted multiple times, at an alarming rate, it is hard for them (and for you as reader) to understand who is after them. It keeps you want to read on and on, until you know who is the bad guy.
I will not spoil your read, by telling you who is after them. But of course Noah’s creepy uncle has something to do with it.
Four out of five stars from me. And a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc in exchange of an honest review.
