My best friend is married.Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.
Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.
Of course I say yes.
What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone.
Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.
Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.
He always has to be the life of the party.He’s also arrogant.Imposing.Rich.And a playboy.I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.
Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.
Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.
But after two weeks what I didn’t expect to discover is that I’d been wrong about him. That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.That his arrogance is really confidence. And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.
So yes, I’d misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although I might still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.And I want more of him.
The question is—does he want more of me?
At first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Sexy Jerk. Based on how the story starts, it somewhat reminded me of the movie Life as We Know It, except with slightly different circumstances. Even though there were similarities, the story was still engaging. Nick and Tess were quite the pair. Their connection was instant though it helped that they were somewhat familiar with each other. I loved their banter and how they fit so well together even with the misconceptions that Tess had. The way Nick interacted with Max melted my heart. There was so much more to him than what I expected. Tess was equally surprising. She isn’t as “innocent” as I initially thought which made for some pretty intense chemistry where Nick was involved. I thought Sexy Jerk was well written and fast paced. There was a little suspense which also kept things interesting. Overall, this was an entertaining read. I look forward to reading what Kim Karr releases next.
Will be available on Kindle Unlimited!
