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.
Makayla and Cam had a chance distant encounter, one of them was aware of it and the other wasn't. But in that moment they both had a bit of a revelation. A coming to for what the summer would bring. Makayla walked away never expecting to see the tattooed man-sl*t again and said tattooed man-sl*t was not even aware of Makayla's existence. Fast forward to the plane ride that would change everything and begin a whirlwind summer for them both. What neither of them were expecting was each other. To have anything beyond the summer fling they thought it was going to be. And through the heartaches and thrills the summer would bring they both being to fall. To fall deeper into each other, and to fall deeper into who they should be. Makayla and Cam are both coming of derailments from life. Speed bumps, if you will. And they seems to find solid footing in their hope and dreams with one another. They spark almost a passion in one another in and out of the bedroom.
This book is a terrific beach read, but also so much more than that. In true Kim Karr fashion, it evokes a slew of emotions that will run roughshod over the reader, but in a highly enjoyable way. I truly loved every bit of this sexy, steamy read and would love to see if Maggie and Brookyln ever get a story (or stories, the jury is still out on that one). While it is a lighter and sweeter read than I am used to from Kim Karr it was every bit the literary wonder I've come to know and revel in from her and I highly suggest all readers pick up No Pants Required!
Kim is a daydreamer. So much so that if daydreaming could be a hobby it would be her favorite. It's how her stories are born and how they take root. An imagination that runs wild is something to be thankful for, and she is very thankful. :)
She grew up in New York and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She's always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and with the rest of her time embraces one of her biggest passions--writing.
Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read.
She likes to believe in soul mates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. She loves to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.
