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.

Lani Lynn Vale is a New to Me Author. I must say I am impressed with her writing style. Clean, clear, picturesque, sexy, and humor added in. I will be purchasing the first two installments of the this scintillating series. More please!!
I enjoyed this story quite a bit. It is believable, realistic, with current events, HOT DAYUM... grab the ice bucket, as well as, humorous scenes tp kept the pages flipping. Full of action, romance, betrayal, anger, and more.
Drew is a compassionate man who has had a helacious marriage and does not want to make the same mistake again. Not only is his ex-wife a handful, his daughter starts to act out in her own way. I could not put this down, I had to know what was going to happen next.
Aspen is the talk of the town these days, she took her anger out on her ex-boyfriends truck and then some, which ended with her being on house arrest. I would have done the same thing if that happened to me. She is a strong character and I LOVE that in a story.
My favorite part in the story is when Aspen and Downy embrace each other. Great scene and it triggered some things I hadn't thought of in years.
I was gifted an e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. No renumeration was involved.
