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

I really love Kim Karr’s books and I’m always in line to read when a new release comes out.  I have to say I was intrigued by this one from the first time I read the synopsis. I was delightfully surprised by this book.  I think we truly get to see a side of Kim we haven’t seen before.  It’s witty, and adorable in some aspects and sultry and sexy in others!

I did not expect the book to start off the way it did.  The mishaps that occur on Makayla’s adventure to California are down right deep belly laugh funny!  I was in stitches from the moment her seat mate sat down till the minute her humiliation sent her running off the plane forgetting some of her items!  You won’t even believe the hysterical antics she gets up to on that airplane!  I’m giggling again writing this review, and thinking about it.  So our heroine is making off on a new adventure, she’s been burned and scorned and needs a fresh start.  Where better to start that then with her best friend, the sun and sand of the Cali coast line out her back door!  Except the man that was her seat mate on the plane, that one that induced the hysterical antics, he happens to be living irght next door!

Camden is just simply sexy, sweet, sassy and just plain awesomeness rolled into one fantastic hero!  I loved him from the moment they meet on that plane, and straight through to the very end of this book.  I don’t always love the hero through the whole book, usually he makes me mad and I end up having a period of time where I question if I really think he deserves the heroine, but for me this one was opposite.  Makayla’s afraid to let herself really fall this time, and who could blame her with the way her Ex had destroyed her self-esteem, but Camden really deserved a little better with all he went through too.

In the end I was really happy with how their relationship progressed, and just how AMAZING Camden was, in what he was doing for not just Makayla but her friend too!  He truly was just the ultimate hero in my book!  Camden will melt your hearts ladies, so pick up this book and give it a shot!  It’s funny, sweet and you’ll fall in love immediately with Camden Waters!
