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.
I do believe that Ms. Vale has based Aspen off of me. I mean come on, going after your ex’s truck with a tire iron because you catch him cheating? Hell yes that is so me, I have told my husband that if I ever catch him cheating I am going to make Carrie Underwood look tame. Yes I am aware that I have anger management issues. So you can imagine the amount of love I had for this book from the very start. I devoured Oxygen Deprived and I think that this one may be the best book of hers that I have read lately.
Drew and Aspen balance each other out perfectly. He can’t help but be curious about his new neighbor, especially when some of the things he witnesses makes her look crazy but at the same time are hilarious and have you picturing these things in your mind. I love Drew but I LOVED Aspen. That bathroom scene with the mold is HILARIOUS. I bet you are asking what bathroom scene, well read it and find out for yourself! Oh and the product testing, O.M.G. I about DIED from laughing so hard, at times I couldn’t breathe and couldn’t catch my breath. So yes I was Oxygen Deprived there for a little bit, but I don’t think it did much damage, do you?
This book whore highly recommends not only Oxygen Deprived but the previous books in this series as well, and trust me being Oxygen Deprived while reading this one is a good thing, it means you can’t stop laughing at the antics, the banter, and just overall everything that Drew and Aspen do.
