Author: Katie Ruggle
In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder…
Ice rescue diver Derek Warner never meant to be a hero. But when two little girls go missing, he’s the first in line to bring them home—even if that means scouring the wilderness with the woman he once loved and lost, Artemis Rey.
Artemis has never stopped wanting Derek. Now, racing to find the girls before it’s too late, minutes turn to hours. Night falls. Old flames rekindle. And a danger grows in the darkest wilderness that may be more than even the Search and Rescue brotherhood can hope to face…
On His Watch is the pulse-pounding prequel to the riveting Search & Rescue series by Katie Ruggle.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
On His Watch, the prequel to Katie Ruggle's Search & Rescue series, like the description says, really was a pulse-pounding read. Derek and Artie's story hooked me from the very first page and I couldn't put the book down until I was finished because I needed to know how everything was going to play out.
The romance in this book was really good. I really liked Artie and Derek. They had excellent chemistry and while it is kind of weird that the two of them would reconnect while searching for two missing girls in the woods in the snow, it actually really worked for this book. And in all honesty the only thing I was disappointed about with this story was that Derek and Artie are only getting a novella because I really wanted to see more of them.
Overall, I really liked this book. It was really good introduction to this new series by Katie Ruggle and it has left me anxious for what's to come next. I'm sure it's going to be good.
