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 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?
3.5 Sexy stars
Firstly I love this cover
Secondly, this book is written by Kim Karr so I dived right in.
Thirdly, Sexy Jerk is a hate to lovers romance so again another reason to dive right in. So there were three ticks for this book before I even read it.
However, I didn’t think Nick was a jerk at all, the sexy part is right, he just did what single blokes do, yes, he had commitment issues due to something in his past but overall he's a nice guy.
Tess and Nick are already in the same circles Tess and Nick share the same godson and best friends.
Tess agrees to watch her godson Max for two weeks while her best friend and her husband finally get the chance to go on an overdue honeymoon, what Tess isn't aware of until she gets to Fiona's house is the babysitting duties are going to be shared with Nick Carrington the guy she pegged as a jerk,a manwhore and arrogant.
Tess begins to discover that maybe she read Nick all wrong and Nick is on a mission to also prove her wrong.
Nick is sweet,caring and has a hot dirty mouth.
Once the manwhore blinkers are removed from Tess's eyes she wants him and a hot relationship develops.
Sexy Jerk is a slow start to anything that had me excitedly or eagerly turning the pages except the hot sex scenes, a high percentage of the book is two people getting to know each other,figuring each other out,dating and discovering each others bodies.
Both characters are likeable,witty and are made for each other.
Tess wanted to start a new chapter in her life after her break up and she did all the way to a hea with Nick.
Sexy Jerk is a pleasant read told in dual pov's with no heavy angst or drama, an ideal Sunday read.
