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.
Oxygen Deprived is the third book in the Kilgore Fire series and it’s quite a wild ride for Drew and Aspen.
Drew is recently divorced and is dealing with a witch of an ex-wife. He has a fifteen-year-old daughter who doesn’t make life any less easier on him either. He’s a firefighter and medic on the SWAT team and a guy you can’t help but love.
Aspen is on house arrest because of her cheating ex and the poor decision she made to get revenge on him. She is quite a character who is cute, quirky, and so adorable.
When Aspen meets Drew, her new neighbor, she can’t help but be attracted to him, but who wouldn’t? He seems like the perfect package – hot and downright sexy. When Drew ends up helping her in more ways than one, they know they want to know more about each other, but they are both so leery. His wife is a bitch, who keeps getting in the way and Aspen is still dealing with having her heart broken.
As things happen and Aspen’s ex start causing trouble along with more drama from his daughter that he least expected, life certainly isn’t easy for either of them, but they are more drawn to each other more than ever. I loved how Drew became so protective over her! Even though he was dealing with a crazy ex, he wanted to keep Aspen safe and I loved him even more for that.
I just loved their relationship because even though it’s complicated for them both, they worked so well together. Their life wasn’t easy at times but that’s what made them perfect. They balanced each other out and were amazing together. Aspen is a strong character who doesn’t let life keep her down. When she finds herself in danger, believe me, she fights back and Drew and his guys are shocked. I was laughing so many times during this book because I loved that she didn’t just roll over and let her past rule her. She was definitely a fighter that I just loved! I recommend this 4 star book and I need another hot firefighter book now!
