book blurb

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.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review for The Book Enthusiast.

MaKayla Alexander’s life has gone to crap. She thought she had a job she would never want to leave, and a fiance who adored her only to discover she was wrong on both counts. So, when her best friend, Maggie, asks her to come to California and start over, she readily agrees.

This story picks up with MaKayla’s good bye party at a local bar. After stepping into an empty room to check her messages, she realizes a little too late just what is going on in the room. Two people are being intimate. She can’t see anything of the man except for the tattoo of a B on his chest. Fast forward a couple of hours, and MaKayla has boarded her plane, and she is going through a list Maggie came up. All items were to be checked off, and Maggie said once the list was completed she could prove once and for all that she was not a stuck up, boring, prude. When an incredibly handsome and sexy man turns out to be her seatmate, she starts to wonder if she should check off one item on the list with his help-Joining the Mile High Club. She finds the courage to lure this man into the bathroom, and they start making out hot and heavy. Everything is great until she sees the B tattoo on his chest. This brings her to her senses. so she returns to her seat and ignores the man for the remainder of the flight. Imagine their shock when they realize that are actually neighbors. Will they take a chance on love, or will they just become friends?

No Pants Required is a really great book. There is romance, angst, and laughter. In my opinion, it would be the perfect beach read!
