Summary: “Meet Emily Norris. A single, but hopeful, young flight attendant who’s trying to survive the holiday made for lovers. She plans on spending the evening with her best friend Monica. Add a chick flick, some wine and February 15th can’t arrive fast enough. However, Emily’s night and plans take an unexpected turn when she finds Ethan Murphy, aka The Panty Dropper, knocking at her door. Find out what fate has in store when these two are struck by Cupid’s arrow.” – Goodreads
Before anyone tries to beat me with the Bible and drown me in holy water, this book isn’t what it sounds like. (Which some will be relieved by, others disappointed.) If anything, this short of about 40 pages is nothing more than a light, fluffy romance with a very misleading name.
The characters have just enough depth for the story’s length, though the relationship did seem a bit surface-level to me. Yes, they end up getting married, but I don’t see the connection outside of the physical attraction. Plus, how’s a relationship between them supposed to work if both of them are gone three weeks out of the month?
The writing wasn’t anything spectacular or beautiful, it did a so-so job of carrying emotion as well, but it had a nice flow to it and moved along with respective momentum. The plot is nothing new, but again it was only meant to be a light and fluffy read. If that’s what you’re looking for, have at it.
Decent characters, decent writing and a sort-of-heartwarming plot, though overall not noteworthy in any of the aforementioned categories, leaves The Panty Dropper with a three out of five.
