That was the motto that Drew lived by in all things, including his love life.
He’s a player, pure and simple.
He’s learned the hard way that women aren’t all hearts and flowers. Sometimes their sexy bodies and beautiful faces are just a pretty shield to hide the crazy, and he’s so freakin’ over crazy.
Been there, done that. He has the divorce papers to prove it.
Karma hits like a bitch.
Aspen needs a break. A long one that doesn’t include anything with a Y chromosome. Not even one as tempting as her new neighbor who just moved in across the street. Men are trouble with a capital freakin’ T, and she has the ankle monitor to prove it.
The last man she gave her heart to was a police officer. A man whose life was dedicated to protection, and he was supposed to protect her heart—not break it.
She decides right then and there that she’s done with being the better person.
Everything happens for a reason.
A rash decision—undoubtedly regrettable, undeniably unforgettable. In the heat of the moment, Aspen’s actions with a tire iron and her ex-boyfriend’s brand new SUV land him in the ER getting stitches and have her seeing the inside of a jail cell for the first time.
It’s just her luck that the whole town is there to witness the result of her poor decision, including her police officer brother and the neighbor that already made it more than clear she was more trouble than she was worth.
House arrest never looked so good.
Hide your crazy.
Drew enjoyed the show, though. For the first time in a year, he’s thinking about his life, and how it would be a lot more enjoyable with a woman like Aspen at his side.
Maybe crazy isn’t so bad after all.
5 Stars Lani Lynn Vale is quickly becoming a must read, one click author for me. Every time I read a book of her's I know it will be incredibly well written and I become more involved with the characters and the places that her stories revolve around. Oxygen Deprived is Drew and Aspen's Story. These characters are complex, endearing and most of all completely entertaining. Their banter had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion, much to my children and husband's disgust! (How dare I interrupt their television viewing by laughing at a book I was reading on my kindle). Their are quite a few twists and turns in this book that I definitely didn't see coming and the plot kept me completing enthralled. I seriously read this book in one sitting, because I couldn't put it down, once I started. A great mix of romance, supensense, family and friendship, with a good dose of humor. I really am coming to love the Kilgore Fire Department and community in general. I loved that past characters made a cameo appearance in this book and cannot wait to read more of this amazing series.
