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 truly come to LOVE Kim Karr’s Contemporary Romance novels. Each one I think continue to get better and better.
Sexy Jerk was so not what I was expecting. To be honest I was nervous by the title that I wasn’t go to like the Hero of this story. I am happy to report that is so far from how I felt while reading this book. I LOVED Nick. He was completely swoon worthy and so far from a jerk. Now don’t get me wrong his mouth had a tendency to get him into trouble, especially with Tess, but that was what I loved about him 😉
Sexy Jerk is a new standalone novel in her new series of standalone novels. They are located in Chicago and are going to focus around three college buddies. Each book will be a separate story and will feature a new couple. This book focuses on Nick Carrington. He is well known developer in Chicago. This book is an enemies to lovers story. I thought the flow and pace were perfect for this story. The characters were developed enough to give them feeling and heart and for a connection to be built with the reader. The storyline was fun, entertaining, HOT and even a little suspenseful.
In this book we follow the story of Nick and Tess. Both are the best friends of Fiona and Ethan. A married couple who have a little boy named Max. Tess has just recently moved back to Chicago after suffering a broken heart in New York and is trying to start her life over again, but this time live it like she wants to. Not how she is told to. Fiona and Ethan are taking a 2 week vacation and ask Tess to watch Max, but little does she know that they have also planned for Nick to be there to help. Tess and Nick don’t really get along well. So color her surprised to find him in their house. Things from her progressed pretty quickly for them, but it totally worked for this story. Each of these characters have some baggage they carry and have some serious trust issues. So will Tess be able to overlook her past and see Nick for something other than a JERK??? Can Nick open his heart to see not every woman is like his mother?? Read this book to find out.
I loved that Kim also added in some aspect of mystery to this story. She created a little side story that involves Nick and someone else (NO not another woman) But it did bring out his competitive side. I did feel that once it all came out that it was resolved a little too quickly, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment. Just wish it would’ve been expanded on a little more. You’ll understand more when you read this story.
I would definitely recommend this book!! I am also really looking forward to reading Big Shot….the next book in the Sexy Jerk World.
