    Review at Of Pens and Pages.

    After a rough break-up with her long-term, French boyfriend, Tess Winters is back in Chicago to start anew. First step is to rent a place so she can open a cafe. Second is to renovate it and make it look the best it can be. But before she can get on with that, she promises her best friend, Fiona, to babysit her son while she and her husband go on a much-needed honeymoon.

    No big deal. Tess adores her godson, Max, and she knows she can take care of the toddler.

    descriptionI like this cover. It's not really how "I" pictured Nick, but it's a yummy cover. It has fairly good composition. I think it would have been more visually pleasing to have the author's name under the title and the photo centered more. I love the font and the title work.description

    Ever meet someone who gets on your last damn nerve? Someone who, no matter what, never leaves you with a good impression of them? Imagine being stuck with this person while babysitting your bestie's child for two weeks. Oh, the horror.

    Well, Tess has always viewed Nick as a jerk. There was absolutely no love lost between them because Nick thought she was a stuck-up something or other. But he didn't really think that. He thought she was not only sexy and

    Rare personal note ahead...

    When Sexy Jerk releases on May 25th, it will be my 14th full length novel release. I started this writing process 5 years ago this month and I have to tell you, I have loved every minute of it and every book is dear to me. However, the three that will come in the next six months are especially so.

    This year has been a difficult one for me as my husband suffered a heart attack right before my Hollywood Prince release. He was lucky in that he survived, but he almost didn

    Tess has been burned, so what does a scorn woman do? Move back home to be near her best friend. BUT what happens when her best friend and her best friend's husband go on vacation for two weeks and she has to babysit their child with a big jerk, who happens to be sexy.

    Tess and Nick's dislike for each other was fun to read because you knew deep down they were attracted to each other. When they finally did realize their attraction to one another it was hot!

    Nick and Tess are forced to spent two weeks together babysitting their godson while his parents take their much-needed honeymoon. Tess may think Nick is nothing more than a sexy playboy jerk, she discovers all the things she thought about his are not exactly true. And that Nick just may be the person who helps her become the person she was meant to be.

    I devoured this book in a couple of hours. It was funny, hot, sweet, and with just a little mystery and suspense! I was very happily surprised with how this book started. It seemed things blossomed between Nick and Tess pretty quickly once they were thrown together. And even though Tess was nursing a broken heart, she quickly realized there was something more to Nick than the sexy jerk she'd seen in the past. And I don't just mean personality wise.

    As far as enemies-to-lovers books go, Sexy Jerk was the best kind. Never too antagonistic, never cruel in a way that is impossible to come back from, the story is relatively low angst which means that there was virtually nothing standing in my way when it came to falling in love with Tess & Nick’s love story.

    It’s got a very lighthearted feel, even as it touches on some heavier subject matter. It’s quick and easy read – but completely satisfying. I loved how Nick & Tess progressed – quick

    Firstly I love this cover
    Secondly, this book is written by Kim Karr so I dived right in.
    Thirdly, Sexy Jerk is a hate to lovers romance so again another reason to dive right in, So thats three ticks before i even read the book.

    However, I didn’t think Nick was a jerk at all, the sexy part is right, he just did what single blokes do, yes,he had commitment issues due to something in his past but overall he's a nice guy.

    Tess and Nick are already in the same circles Tess and Nick share

    The enemies to lovers story isn't a new one, so in order to enjoy it, there needs to be something about it to make it feel different, or there need to be characters you connect with and the writing needs to be strong.

    This has all 3. Nick and Tess are essentially thrown together to be responsible for the child of mutual friends. in the interest of making sure the vacation happens, neither of their friends are all that concerned with letting Nic

    ARC received for an honest review

    There is such a fine line between love and hate - or lust and hate.

    Right from the start you couldn't help but adore Tess and Nick, and hate the man who screwed Tess over. There is wit and spark and banter out the wazoo with this pair.

    I adored seeing them strip each others layers until they find the man and woman beneath the hatred they have for each other. And then stripping each other's clothes off! The sexy times are off the charts hot!

    Kim Karr’s Sexy Jerk is a drop-dead sexy frenemies-to-lovers romance that you do not want to miss. Tess Winters and Nick Carrington have always rubbed each other the wrong way since they met when their best friends fell in love and married. They have always had an antagonistic, flirty push-and-pull relationship full of funny, sarcastic verbal jabs and even a mooning episode (courtesy of Nick), but they have managed to co-exist when they are around each other.

    Kim Karr is always good for a hot read about two people who TRY to resist each other.

    Sexy Jerk was not exception. I really enjoyed Nick and Tess's story. How they had a bit of a back story, and even though their relationship started off a bit tense it wasn't OTT.

    Nick Carrington is NOT a “Sexy Jerk” Sexy yes, Jerk no. Sexy Jerk is a standalone and is Nick and Tess’s story. It looks like there will be other books to come and each will be a standalone. This makes me a very happy woman! I want to read more about Jace Bennett and Lucas Carrington (yes, he is Nick’s brother).
