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.

you can read each as a stand-alone without starting at the first to make sure you get the storyline, but they're all connected...two include siblings and their respective romances, third is the best friend of one and the brother to another. Reading Hollywood Prince I kept on thinking there was another I missed because the location seemed so familiar as well as the steamy scenes... I think I was actually thinking of F*ck Buddy by Scott Hildreth. Which isn't as funny as Kim Karr, but imho, is way hotter. Hope this helps.(less)

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.

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.

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.

I really enjoyed No Pants Required! It's funny,sexy,hot,steamy and refreshing!!It's perfect for the Summer vacations.Pick this book and go to the beach and you'll immediately feel like you are a part of the story! Two very different people end up being perfect for each other! Both need each other to find what they really want from their lives.


I loved Cam's dirty mouth! He is cocky, a smartass and super hot! Makayla wasn't very confident in the beginning but one moment in a plan

Makayla Alexander has always been the good girl. Having a great career, and loving friends, she feels that she's too uptight and she wants to make a change. Deciding to leave New York and move to Laguna Beach with her best friend, Makayla is on track to being a free spirit and finally letting her hair down.

Perfect summer romance, steamy, funny and so cute!

After a tough breakup Makayla decides to leave NYC and moves to her best friend in Laguna Beach, California. She wants to find herself again and prove to yourself that she is not uptight b*tch like her ex claims. She says goodbye to her friends from the city at the party. And this is where the story begins and when start the most bizarre situations in which she will find herself this summer.

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!!

Ok, maybe I'm just bored, but this book was yawn-worthy...

It wasn't bad or anything like that, it was just 'meh' and boring. The characters were flat and, yeah, the story was predictable (all romance stories are (or at least99% of them)), but I wanted a bit of chemistry, or something, anything, to keep me interested.

But nope. That didn't happen. I was so bored, I don't even remember what happened in most of the book.

Anyway, I dunno if it's worth reading. There are better books out th

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

I needed some light fun read and took this book but it was far from being fun for me.

The plot-line was mostly around a stupid list that the heroine tried to complete to prove to herself that she is not uptight as her ex accused her of and anyone who tries to prove something to herself with a list like that is a complete idiot for me so I couldn't relate to the characters at all...

And we have to read the erotic romance book the couple read all along the novel - and it was yikes! I don't know why

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

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.

When you first start reading a book with a girl under a table watching someone get a blowjob, you can't help but have certain expectations of said book. It was even on the right track with the airplane and all, and I was ready to forgive a lot of eye-roll moments right up until the first actual sex scene. The whole time I was praying for both the main characters to shut up or at least say something not cringe worthy but alas it wasn't meant to be. With every sex scene it got worse and at some po ...more

Makayla Alexander is leaving New York for Laguna Beach, California to start a new life. Her best friend Maggie not only gives her a place to stay and inspiration, but a list of ten things to jump start it.

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.

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.

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

2. Have sex with someone you don’t know…..

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.
