Review: Survive the Night

Review: Survive the Night, by Katie Ruggle, 4 stars

✩✩

K9 Officer Otto Gunnersen always had a soft spot for anyone in need. As Monroe's very own Dr. Doolittle, he dedicates himself to rehabilitating the injured souls that cross his path—but for all his big heart, he's never been in love.
Until he meets Sarah Clifton's haunted eyes. Until he realizes he'll do anything to save her.
All Sarah wants is to escape a life caught between ambitious crime families, but there's no outrunning her past. Her power-mad brother would hunt her to the ends of the earth...but he'd never expect Sarah to fight back. With Otto and the whole of Monroe, Colorado by her side, Sarah's finally ready to face whatever comes her way.

Genre: romantic suspense

Publication date: February 2018

Mature content: yes

Review: Survive the Night is book 3 in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series by Katie Ruggle and, like the previous books (Run to Ground and On the Chase) it's a roller coaster of action, suspense and sizzling romance.


The first part of the book is surprisingly quiet - Otto is the sweetest thing, all shy and hesitant around Sarah. The second part, though, reads like an old 80s action movie. And like those action movies, you can't help but follow the story, admire all the special effects and in the end you think "oh, it was great, but this would never happen in real life". Monroe, Colorado crushes any expectation you may have about quiet life in a small town in such a grand way it's a tad unrealistic - or a lot unrealistic, really. So four stars only.

This series is kind of addictive, though (advice: read the books in order, they are really not prepared to work on a stand alone basis). So I'll be waiting for the next one,Through the Fire (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit), which is due to be published next August.

Have a wonderful weekend,
