Deep Down (The OGs #1) by Elle Aycart

Deep Down (The OGs, #1)

Mike Haddican is a proud small-town gym owner, a renowned karate instructor, and all-around good guy. He’s never needed much to be happy: his family, his friends, his girl. Especially his girl. But when Kyra left him seven years ago to chase her dreams, she all but destroyed him.

Contemporary dancer Kyra Brims made it big, but it cost her dearly. With her life and career in shambles, she doesn’t need a do-over, she needs a friggin’ miracle. Injured, broke, and out of options after going through hell, she’s come back to Alden, the town she swore she’d never return to and home of Mike Haddican, the man who ripped her soul to pieces, to lick her wounds and recover.

Forgetting and letting go proved impossible when they were worlds apart; now that they’re stuck together they don’t stand a chance, especially with Mike’s grandma and her partners in crime plotting, meddling and refusing to give up on them.

As the passion that never died burns out of control, so do old hurts and unresolved issues. Both have reasons to be angry and feel betrayed, but now that they’re older, are they wise enough to make things work?

Oh my gosh - I loved this book!!  First of all, let me fan myself - but Oh Mike - a dirty talker and a sweet talker too - the best of both worlds.  Secondly, the grandmothers in this book were hilarious - you have to love all their antics and text messaging - adding humor and light heartedness to the story.  You'll be wishing at their age, you can have some good friends and fun like they have.

Mike and Kyra were high school sweethearts - each other's first love, but Kyra wanted more - and their relationship ended on a bad note.  More misunderstandings and hurtful words made it almost impossible for them to ever even speak to each other.  But when Kyra moves back into town with her daughter, Sam - it seems like these two are destined to be in each others space, and face the past.

With a little help from some meddling grandmothers, Mike and Kyra have no option but to talk it out - and a few other things!!  They may decide to give it a try, but Kyra still holds back, especially when it comes to her daughter, Sam, who she doesn't want to get too attached to Mike - because she still plans on leaving after she gets her life together again.  The problem is, Sam gets attached right away and Kyra falls right back into her old feelings towards Mike.
Mike invades her life in all the good ways again - taking care of things at her house, helping with her daughter, bringing her chocolate and rubbing her belly when it's her "time of the month" (for that alone he's a keeper!!), and protecting her from her ex-husband. He determined to show her, that her life and family is here with him.
I enjoyed this book so much, between the hot sex scenes, the sweet scenes where Mike is taking care of Kyra, the adorable moments with her daughter, and all the funny moments spent with the grandmothers and other family members it was definitely a book that had all of my favorite things in it!  I cannot wait until the next book comes out and see who's life the OGs meddle in.
