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.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
This book from Kim Karr is the perfect summer read. Fast paced. Steamy. Funny. And a depth I wasn't expecting from a book entitled No Pants Required. I was into the story from the first page and couldn't wait to see if Makayla would be able to find herself again after the blow her heart took from her jerk of an ex.
I loved that Makayla was chasing her happiness- even if it meant leaving the life she knew and was safe living. It didn't take her long to start turning a new leaf either, she didn't even make it to her new destination before she was acting like a whole new Makayla. It helped that she had a sexy seat mate who kept her as entertained as he did turned on. The book they shared certainly helped get them both turned on. Cam stole the show with his innuendo and playfulness. But when she learned just who he was, it was game over. Until fate threw he hand in the mix and Cam ends up being her neighbor.
It was a recipe for either disaster or some deliciously sinful summer nights. She was the organized girl with a plan and he was the guy with the ideas but no real sense of direction. I loved how much they grew individually throughout the course of the book. And how as they came into their own things between them only became more meaningful. Full of laughter, steam, friendship and shenanigans, Cam and Makayla's journey to who they want to be was fun to be a part of. Kim Karr delivered a book that kept me interested and yearning for more when all was said and done.
