No Pants Required by Kim Karr
Release Date: July 11th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Hang Le
I, Makayla Alexander, am on a mission to reinvent myself. So when a super hot guy boards the plane and flashes his rock hard abs, I pay attention. When he sits next to me and offers me his nuts, I can’t resist. But when I choke on them and he tells me I need to work on my gag reflex, I realize I might be in over my head.
Before I know it we’re in the lavatory and attempting to join the Mile High Club. Let me just say this…anyone who tells you it’s easy to get it on at 37,000 feet isn’t telling you the truth. After the flight attendant busts us for getting frisky in the air, the only thing that can ease my total and complete mortification is the simple fact that I am never going to see him again.
Hours later, I can’t help but wonder if fate will ever allow me to become a new version of myself.
Because Fate, she’s a fickle bitch.
Case in point…my seatmate is my new next-door neighbor.
Even with the whole fate thing we have going on, we are so not meant to be together. He’s all cool and sexy in that make love not war kind of way. Guys like him are dangerous. With that bring-you-to-your-knees body, that handsome-as-hell face, and that dirty, dirty mouth, I guarantee one glance from him wets every girl’s bikini bottoms.
And then there’s me…the quirky girl looking to find herself in California. All I want to do is learn to let loose. Say words like peace and groovy. Bury my toes in the sand. Who knows, maybe even have sex on the beach.
Unable to get him out of my head, I entertain the thought of being more than just friends. I know the idea is absurd. And yet, I go with it. You see Camden Waters gets me. Really gets me. Like no other guy has before.
On this 7-mile stretch of paradise, I decide to keep things simple and just have fun…that is until fate decides to screw with me, again.
Can two people hell-bent on finding themselves realize the search should have ended the day they met? Find out in No Pants Required—a sexy, funny, romantic stand-alone, that will have you hurrying to grab your bathing suit and rushing to the beach to check out every lifeguard on duty.
My Review –
5 To A New Beginning Stars!!
Thank you so very much Social Butterfly PR for sending me a copy of No Pants Required!! I’m very honored and grateful!! 🙂
After hearing so many wonderful things about Ms.Karr’s work I couldn’t help but dive right into this story as soon as it landed on my Kindle! Even though this story has one sexy as sin cover it’s what’s on the inside that left me a blushing mess. No Pants Required isn’t just another romantic comedy but a story about how two people want more out of their lives and how finding themselves along the way isn’t always easy to do. It was sexy, hilarious, sweet, frustrating, thought-provoking, and so entertaining!! It’s honestly the best summer read of 2016!!
I felt as if I went on a mini vacation and discovered things I wanted as well such as a man like Cam reading an erotic novel to me. I mean seriously, a sinfully sexy guy reading to me is officially going on my bucket list. I’m very much a fan of Ms.Karr’s and I’m grateful that with this story she reminded me that not only is anything possible in the summertime but anytime. I can’t wait to read more of her books! 🙂
Makayla Alexander was a character who was looking for a fresh start after something occurs that makes her reevaluate her life. New York to California is exactly what she had in mind but her seatmate? Not so much. She was kind and very funny at times. The journey of self discovery made her quite the intriguing heroine in my eyes and I kept cheering her on throughout! Her passion for making jewelry was so cool and how she worked her butt off to make her pieces perfect was admirable. I loved her easy going friendship Maggie. I hoped in the end she’d find out who she wanted to be and take a chance on romance along the way.
Cam Waters was a character who was a lifeguard with a past that just wouldn’t leave him be. He was different from most heroes in the sense that he had more of a free spirited side that I’m not use to seeing and it made me love him as a character that much more. His sexiness was effortless and his humor was a constant. He frustrated me at some points.With every turn of the page i wanted to know more about this at times mysterious man that had a heart full of pain. I enjoyed his friendship with Brooklyn. I crossed my fingers that he’d find happiness in more ways than one.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will make you want to move to California and be adventurous. This story is a great example of why we should all conquer those lists of our own because living life to the fullest is the best of fun. I hated that this book had to end and already want to devour it once more to fall in love with these characters all over again. If you haven’t already One-Clicked this feel good story I can truthfully say that you are missing out!! Buy
