Book Review for Sexy Jerk by Kim Karr

Sexy Jerk

by Kim Karr

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.


  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 is that I’d been wrong about him.

  That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.

  That his arrogance is actually confidence.

  And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me. 

 So yes, I’ve misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although there are times I 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?

I have to begin with saying that I am a Kim Karr fan. I love her characters, they have a way of standing out in every story and Karr knows how to have them leave a lasting impression. Sexy Jerk is an enemies to lovers romance and even though I found nothing jerky about this sexy character, I enjoyed every minute of this story in which two weeks of babysitting changes the lives and minds of two people- one person who walked into this situation with a preconceived opinion and the other that knew he had wanted her the very first moment he ever laid eyes on her.

Nick Carrington, has made a name for himself with the ladies and his actions have warranted to be thought of as jerk moves but he had his reason. Nick is a smart business man which has made him and his friends very rich. He also loves his godson so being asked to babysit for two weeks was no big deal, he was aware that his friends wife's best friend would also be there. He knew he could handle Tess, but having her close everyday and wanting to protect her brings out feelings he never thought he was ready to have for a woman especially for someone who considered him a... JERK!

Tess Winters agreed to babysit for her best friends so they could take a very much needed honeymoon. She never expected that someone else would be staying and helping out with taking care of Max, her friends 3 year old son along with her, especially the guy she considered a jerk of a man-whore. Tess is trying to start over after a breakup with her french boyfriend, she is now looking to rent a location to start her own business. The deal seems shady and she looks to her new roommate/other babysitter for advice. Tess starts to realize that Nick is more than she imagined, keeping her mind and hands off him is getting harder everyday. 

Sexy Jerk is a funny story with a touch of suspense, the suspense part could leave you wanting and questioning, I'm thinking that could tie into the second story. Who Knows? I did fall in love with the characters especially when they let their guards down and submit to their feelings and once they do, it is one sexy as hell ride, with a little heartbreak and some heart touching moments. I love the connection this group of friends have, they protect and watch out for each other and I can't wait for more from this group. 4.5 Smoking Hot Stars!
