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.

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.

Cam Waters has had a few recent set backs. He is glad to be out of the stuffiness of New York and family drama, and back to California. Cam is angry and bitter over painful events in his life and is now coasting as a life guard in Cali. He's charming, funny, flirty, and sexy.

Makayla has been pushed to believe she is uptight and boring. She is a Type A personality, organized, and focused.  She's trying to start fresh, find herself, and some adventure. She's a good girl trying to be a little bad and finding her sassy side.

An interesting first observation, a plane ride, and a surprising California connection keep bringing them back together. They flirt, spar, share misadventures and mortification, and have some serious sexual tension between them. They have good chemistry, but also a bit of awkwardness and tendency to get into challenging situations. They are two people trying to find themselves and get their lives together, so they need to proceed with caution. They find each other when least expected, but are not quite sure what to do about it.

I enjoyed their push and pull, confusion, attraction, vulnerability, and missteps. They were both hot messes, lost, and afraid to bringing someone else into their drama. But they had scorching hot chemistry, were compatible, and had a flirty, witty, rapport. 

They allow each other to be free, fun, and be themselves. Makayla begins to reinvent herself and starts finding her way. But Cam also has some issues to work out on his own and to figure out where his life is going.

Sometimes there are obstacles you don't even realize are there and past insecurities can cloud your vision. Can Cam and Makayla get it together and both manage to chase their dreams while holding onto each other?

I enjoyed the relaxed Lauguna Beach, Cali vibe in contrast to the intensity of New York. The side characters especially her bestie Maggie and his room mate Brooklyn were interesting and fun. I also liked Cam's sister, Amelia. I have already put some couples together in my mind and look forward to more in this series.

I loved that this book was light, funny, sexy, and romantic with just enough emotional edge. I was happy to get both points of view and I got sucked in really easily. The characters were likable, but had flaws and depth. They were a bit awkward and confused, but also fun and feisty. Their banter was infectious and their chemistry was intense. It was fairly low on angst, but had enough drama and complications in their back stories to make it interesting. This was quirky, engaging, humorous start to a new series. I can't wait for Brooklyn! I have already fallen for this half-funny, half-serious reality show has-been and aspiring writer.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
