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

Camden Waters IS a sex god.

I fell in love with this book!

Makayla is a jewelry designer in New York, who has broken up with her fiancé and needs a new start. Her best friend Maggie invites her out to California, to live on the beach and figure out the next phase in her life. Maggie sends uptight Makayla a list of ten things to do to get her old self back—from nude selfies to joining the mile-high club. Makayla agrees to do it.

You don't love someone and set him free to see if he comes back to you. You hold on tight and never let go."


If you're looking for a perfect beach read to spend an afternoon with, look no further than this book! No Pants Required was full of quirky humor and heavy steam. It's a light, feel-good sort of romance that will leave you with a smile on your face.. and at times uncomfortably aroused. Because let's be honest here, people, Camden Walters is one deliciously sinful dirty talker

Let me just start by saying that I had pretty high expectations on this book because I loved Kim Karr's Toxic. I was expecting a sexy, light, perfect for the summer read. And it kind of reached those expectations but not in the way I wanted, I suppose.

No Pants Required is a stand-alone novel that tells the story of Makayla Alexander, a good woman who says she has a boring life and wants to change that by moving from New York to sunny California) and Camden Waters (the sup

Makayla is bored with her New York life.
Well, it's more like her ex-fiancé was probably bored with her - but that's only a guess on her part, because she found him ... well - not telling you that
But now that she's thinking about things, maybe she should change her life a bit. Maybe just try to live a different life for a while. Find herself and all that crap. She hates her boss, she hates being single and alone. Maybe trying a carefree life in California doesn't sound all that bad.

Off she goes.

No Pants Required is a stand-alone romantic comedy with a whole lot of surf, sun, and swoon!!!

This is the first book I have written where the angst is light and there is no suspense, mystery, murder, or crime. Oh, and there is no cliffhanger either :)

I just wanted to write a fun, flirty, and sexy easy summer read.

I hope you enjoy it!!

And tell me what you think of the book Cam and Makayla read together. That part was so much fun!!

After her engagement ended in heartbreak, Mikayla is leaving New York for Los Angeles to reinvent her life. Prior to leaving, she gets front seat view of Camden Waters getting head from a girl, which made things super awkward when both Camden and Mikayla shared a seat during their flight from New York to Los Angeles. This encounter sets off a series of coincidences that brought Camden and Mikayla together.

While it didn't really wow me, No Pants Required was still a fun read. That airplane scene

Kim Karr dishes up a wonderful balance of humor and steam in this fun romantic comedy.

Cam and Makayla are each on a quest to re-discover themselves as they start new lives in Laguna Beach, California. Determined to shed her uptight image, Makayla sets out to complete every item on her free-spirit check list—most of which happen to be sexual in nature. When she meets Cam on a cross-country flight it’s the perfect opportunity to cross “Join the Mile High Club” off her list. Unfortunately

Ummm… no idea what to say about this book.

Well, what to say about it first.

So much happening. So much to say. Gah.



OK firstly, if it is winter wherever you are, maybe don’t read this because this book will definitely make you wish you were on the beach with an ice cold beer to your left and a sweaty lifeguard to your right.




Then again, maybe don’t read this book out in public for all the sympathetic blushing and cringing you’ll do for Makayla’s sake during her first meeting with Cam. Or the second

No Pants Required by Kim Karr is the perfect summer read!!! Before you begin this book, make sure you have a refreshing cocktail in hand and maybe a small electric fan because this book is off the charts sexy and steamy!!

What would make a better beach read than a book set in California, complete with an adorable, dirty-talking lifeguard? No Pants Required hits the spot with its light-hearted humor that’s also heavy on the heat, making it the perfect companion for summer holidays.

After the one-two punch of losing his brother and having a horrible falling out with his father, Camden Waters is drifting through life. He has moved to California to become a lifeguard instead of using his degree to go into

This is exactly the kind of book that you want to read in the summer. Or in the winter, to trick yourself into picturing the oceans tide, feeling the sun on your skin and smelling the ocean breeze. Seriously, everything about this screams 'perfect summer read'. It's light and refreshing, with little (I'd say no angst, but my tolerance levels are higher than some) angst, sexy, charming and guarantees that you'll be laughing out loud. Set in the oceanside city of Laguna Beach, you'll want to grab ...more

I found the PERFECT summer beach/pool read. This is it. It has all the elements of a great summer romance read: it's both lighthearted but has enough of an emotional weight to not make it silly, its hilarious enough to make me laugh out loud, and it is sizzling and also pure romance at it's finest.

Makayla Alexander, after a devastating heartbreak, has made a life-changing decision to up-root her life and all of her hard work to move to the west coast to live with her best friend. She has a plan

This story was cute, funny, frisky and sexy.

Cam was adorable!
I enjoyed all the sexual innuendo and banter between the two.



To be honest, I was expecting a little bit of a Baywatch thing, but that's not what I got. In fact, there wasn't necessarily too much about Cam being a lifeguard. Maybe a couple of scenes, but as far as the overall feel of the book, that's not what it was about.

This was an awakening of sorts. Discovering who you are and what you want out of life, while living it! G

So when a hot as sin guy boards her flight can she go through with her "reinvention" and join the mile high club?

I wasn't really sure what to expect with No Pants Requried - other than knowing that it was a Kim book and I have loved everything to so far.

Makayla and Camden's story was just a wonderful, smart, sexy and funny story.

Aimed with a list (composed by her best friend Maggie) and not much of a plan, Makayla leaves New York and heads for the sunny beaches of California. Her life isn’t going the way she wanted, she doesn’t really like her job, and her fiancé isn’t her fiancé anymore, so when Maggie asked her to move in with her, Makayla figures she’s got nothing to lose and goes.

No Pants Required is a story that every reader will be able to relate to because its focus is on the main characters finding themselves and living life on their terms despite the bullshit of their past, insecurities of their present, and what ifs of their future.

This book was cute, fun and sexy! Just what I needed after my last heavy read. We have Cam and Makayla who couldn't be more opposite in every way. Cam is live for the moment and see what happens. Makayla has everything planned out and doesn't like to stray from the plan. She's an over-thinker and worrier. I loved how the two of them brought out different sides of each other. Makayla learned to loosen up and Cam became more serious with things. I really enjoyed seeing them grow as a couple.If you

Ok, so here's the deal: I was under the impression from teasers, blurb, and maybe the cover that this book was going to be an off the wall romantic comedy. It's not! That's not a bad thing, just a different mind set.

So that said, here's what I think:

Roses are red,
violets are blue,
Cam is a sex God,
how about round 2?

No, does it need some work?! I never said I was a poet.
