GONE TOO DEEP – A Katie Ruggle Review


“In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the search and rescue brotherhood, but in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder”


**ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Katie Ruggle’s latest in her Search and Rescue series, GONE TOO DEEP, hits all the right marks.

Ellie Price is a relatable city girl who’s everyday life is normal beyond compare, but when a cryptic phone call from her estranged, mentally ill father causes Ellie to fear he may be in danger for real….her life takes a drastic turn for the rocky mountains.

Life in Simpson is quiet and normal…if you don’t count the mysterious murders and rampaging psychos that creep in the dark of the small Colorado town.

George Holloway is a man of few words…and they mean that literally…he doesn’t speak until a few chapters in to the book! But whew is this mountain man WORTH THE WAIT. Not only does he agree to escort Ellie though the woods to find her missing father his small acts of care and worry over her make you fall for him immediately. The man literally sweeps her off her feet when hey first meet!

Although George and Ellie fear their biggest threat is the wilderness during their 3 day hike, little do they know that the danger Ellie’s father feared knows they’re coming and has added them to their list of deadly conquests.

Juggling the elements, murderers, a wise-cracking coffee barista, and a hands-on-in-the-wrong-way native, Ellie and George battle the forces of nature and the forces of their hearts.

Oh and just when you think that customary happy ever after has arrived and closed out this story? Trust me….you wanna read every…last…word…

Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!

***SPOILER ALERT CHICKIES*** Don’t read below if you don’t want to know…

Ok now that we’ve been responsible….HOLY SHIT.

JR…Warden…Jessica…GIRL….I love you. Straight up, I do. Always will; but DAMN if this book did not make me FEEL that love. This book is a happy book. Books are supposed to make you laugh, cry, scream, hang on to the edge of your seat but The Beast does all that all while filling up the well of emotions inside your soul until it’s overflowing, something Rhage doesn’t appreciate due to some brotherly teasing (Read the book and you’ll get that one hah!).

Rhage: My man, Hollywood. Seeing a whole new, vulnerable side to the big, bad, beastie was one thing (hello the little chuffs and belly rubs!). But the sensitive side of the big, bad, brother? Did. Me. In. Rhage struggles throughout the whole book with the emotions he’s holding in so he doesn’t upset his Mary. The fear of wanting to be a parent when you go in to that commitment knowing it’s not an option? Something not everyone can understand but readers can clearly tell that’s his struggle. Meanwhile Mary is struggling with the same emotions as she’s been latched on to little Bitty for two years; a girl who Mary sees herself in. Communication, my loves, that was all you needed.

Speaking of Bitty…baby girl you held your OWN against Hollywood. You re baby Rhage in a cute, girl cage. I have never been so happy to see a man become a father then the moment you fell in love with the GTO (I also may be secretly jealous that you got to DRIVE IT, HELLO!).

Now let’s get to the twists: these are spoilers you REALLY don’t want to..erm…well…spoil yourself with….

1. Scribe Virgin: First of all…bitch. Don’t make me mad at you then do some good. I SWEAR… Now that the VS is “out of commission”…who’s she appointing? Logic begs Lyric (gods that NAME. Genius, Layla. It’s fucking perfect.)

2. Jo Early: I KNEW, just KNEW, this girl was important (and not just cause she had her own view points). But I got a question: How is it that Caldwell has so many damn half-siblings running around everywhere? And Jo and Bill have a great point that Caldwell is the only place with these Lesser “sacrifice scenes” leftover, not that they know it’s Lessers but wouldn’t the Omega?(#ThatFuckerWasSCARY) want to spread out a bit? And is anyone else curious about Old Country?

3. Assail: This one’s a three parter. Baby, I am so glad you are getting your shit together. But WTF WITH THROE…I mean…I’m here for it cause Throe is hot. This gunna be a trio now? Or are we gunna get you and Marisol back together? Y’all better step up and get your own book and sort that shit. And that phone call to Marisol during the fire. MY GODS CHILD DON’T SCARE ME LIKE THAT. Rescuing Markus and getting revenge alongside Z: I am HERE FOR IT. #TheBitchDeservedWorse

Now the NEXT Book…THE CHOSEN. Finally..FINALLY Xcor and Layla. These two have been dancing hand and foot for way to fucking long. It’s about damn TIME. How’re the Brothers gunna handle this one?
