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 don’t know about you, but with summer here I love a good light read that will make me smile, but still has some heat to it. And that is exactly what No Pants Required was!
After a bad breakup Makayla realizes she lost herself along the way. It’s time for a change. So she moves to Laguna Beach in a quest to find herself. Her BFF Maggie, who she is going to stay with in Cali, wants to help her loosen up a bit, find herself again, so she challenges her with a list of tasks she needs to complete – and being a total type A personality she has never met a list she doesn’t like or need to check everything off of!
Now she is off on a plane to start over. And wouldn’t you know it a total HOTTIE sits next to her on the plane. A sexy stranger with a dirty mouth and a talent to turn everything into sexual innuendos! Is the mile high club in their future? (After all that would check an item off the list!) But all is good because Makayla will never see this man again once they land. Right? Bahahaha… of course that is NOT right! This sex on a stick man is Maggie’s next door neighbor – looks like there is no escaping him. And really with the sexual chemistry that ignites when they are near, this should be a good thing!
I was in love with how these characters were written. Makayla has such a quirky, fun voice! She is so easy to relate to. Having her life shaken up, needing to reinvent herself, seeing her insecurities – all something most of us can relate to. And swoonworthy Camden… *sigh* please come find me and read to me!!!! Both come to the party with baggage, but they make each other stronger.
This book had me smiling so much. But don’t be fooled – just because it is a light summer read – the couple did have their share of issues to keep your interest and complicate their story.
I definitely recomend this book. If you are looking for a great summer read, that is HOT and fun and romantic then look no further!
I received a complimentary copy of No Pants Required in exchange for my honest review.
