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.

Review:  4.25 of 5 Stars

No Pants Required is one of those books that will have you laughing from the beginning.  I love Makayla Alexander and her total awkwardness, possibly because I can totally see myself being like her.  If it is possible to end up in an uncomfortable situation, she will find it, by accident, of course.  Armed with her luggage, a playlist and a "bucket list" to find herself, she is leaving NYC behind for sunny California.  

Cam Waters at first glance appears to be a cocky, arrogant, SOB; however, once I started reading more, especially from his POV, the more I fell in love with him.  He is funny, smart and sexy.  After Cam and Makayla meet on the plane to Laguna Beach and get caught attempting to join the Mile High Club (on her list!), I was dying.  I sort of felt bad for him since Makayla was a real witch to him because of her preconceived opinions.  But a the end of the day, they never planned on seeing each other again so it should not have mattered.  Those plans never seem to work out.

Once Cam and Makayla realize they are neighbors, the chemistry really begins to heat up.   Will they overcome their own insecurities to see what is staring them in the face?   I really enjoyed this book and the characters.  It was a fun, lighthearted read.  If you have a summer beach trip planned, you should one click it and read it on the sand.  It would really set the scene.  Job well done, Ms. Karr.
