Oxygen Deprived {Book Review}

Title: Oxygen Deprived
Series: Kilgore Fire Series
Author: Lani Lynn Vale 
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Description:

No take-backs.

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.

My Review

As always with Mrs. Vale's books I loved it. I have to say I do believe once again Mrs. Vale has a hit with this book. I think that this book is by far my favorite in the Kilgore Fire series. Not to say I haven't enjoyed the others

I loved Aspen. She's just the right mix of crazy and sweet. I mean she did go crazy on her ex's truck and that's what got her landed on house arrest. I also found her to be funny. There was just something very loveable about her.

I loved loved loved Drew. I think it's not just the fact that he was older than most of the characters I read in books. But he was sweet, caring and protective. He also seemed very grounded.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. And of course as soon as I started I couldn't put it down. The downside to that is I finish Mrs. Vale's books way to quickly and always want more. 

I'm giving this book 4.5 Stars out of 5 and can't wait for the next one!!!!!
