No Pants Required by Kim Karr
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.
‘No Pants Required’ by Kim Karr is the perfect summertime read! This absolutely fun and light hearted romantic comedy will completely whisk you away with its’ witty and charming characters, laugh out loud moments, and sizzling escapades. I highly recommend you grab your favorite libation, prop up your feet, and dive right into this deliciously sweet and sexy summer read!
I would just like to start by saying that I just absolutely adored the characters in this book!
Makayla had such an intriguing and quirky personality, and I absolutely loved her inner dialogue. I also really admired that along with her insecurities, she also had great strength and confidence in trying to overcome them. It was quite surprising to me that she had so much sexual confidence, but that’s one of the many things that made her relationship with Camden spontaneous and super-hot! Oh, and did I mention her checklist for finding her old self and how fantastic it was? Believe me, this isn’t your ordinary checklist that I am speaking of, and Makayla showed great determination and courage in completing it to prove to herself that she could be the spontaneous person she once was!
I loved how Camden was strong and steadfast in his beliefs, although he struggled with his anger from his past issues and goals regarding his career. It made him more real and genuine, and it was very refreshing that he was so trustworthy and not wish-washy in his feelings for Makayla. He was so incredibly sweet, playful, and spontaneous which made his character even more charming, sexy, and totally dream worthy!
I also appreciated Makayla’s and Camden’s patience and respect for each other as they worked through their individual struggles within themselves. It ultimately allowed them to build a strong foundation of friendship with each other. Together, their passion was incredible and they made such a fun loving and absolutely adorable couple!
Kim Karr has such an impeccable ability in creating heartfelt and true to life characters and weaving them into unique storylines that consume you from beginning to end. The story moved along at a nice and steady pace, and combined with the beach setting made for a very refreshing romance. This is such a fun and enjoyable story that makes for the perfect summer reading escape!
