Dropping In is a sexy romance by Carrie Quest. Natalie has always been a girl who doesn’t take life too seriously until something happens that makes her change her mind. She has decided to be the daughter her parents expect her to, but yet something is missing, some important part of her. She has found that piece of her in writing. As you can imagine, her parents are not very happy, but she is bound and determined to prove them wrong, acing her summer writing class. She has no time for distractions, but her BFF’s brother’s, Ben, returning home will test her resolve. Ben, himself, has no time for distractions either. He is home to help his best friend, Adam, recuperate after a horrible accident on the half-pipe during a snowboarding practice run. The sexual tension crackles between these two, so we’ll see how long they can keep their hands off one another.
I will be honest, I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like Natalie in the beginning. She seemed immature, never sticking to anything, partying, and moving from one man to the next, but never developing a relationship. By the middle of the book and definitely at the end, I really liked her. She did an enormous amount of growing and maturing. I even began to understand why she behaved like she did. Her older sister seemed to do everything right, always earning praise from their parents. Natalie felt like she could never measure up, so she quit trying. After a frightening experience, she realizes she needs to take life more seriously. But, she does it in a way she thinks her parents would approve of, not for her. I felt sorry for her in that sense, so when she found a passion for writing, I was happy that she pursued it.
Ben was the complete opposite of Natalie, always laser-focused on his career as a professional snowboarder, but seeing his best friend involved in such a horrible has rocked his vey foundation. He is ready to leave everything he worked for behind. I loved his personality from the beginning. He had a way of lighting a room up.
The romance was both sexy and sweet. However, at times, it was pretty serious. These are two people who have never been in a relationship before, but for different reasons. Ben is always busy, and he has no time. Natalie just never wanted one, until Ben, so this is new territory for both of them. They will have to work hard to discover what works best for them, yet allows them to keep their dreams alive.
I loved the secondary characters. Quest was brilliant as she developed the characters of Adam and Piper. They have a past, and she did an awesome job of getting her readers ready for their book. I LOVED Chuckles, the cat, and Thor, the dog! I am an animal lover, so I always love when a writer makes them characters in their own right!
This is a solid, enjoyable, romantic, and sexy beginning to a series I look forward to continuing. I can’t wait to read Piper and Adam’s story next. I think they have quite a lot to tell us!

So many great secondary characters (Piper, Adam, Chuckles). Character development is great along the story. Both Ben and Natalie mature a lot.

Writing Style: Amazing characters development with interesting plot. Cohesive writing with great setting.
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER
Freshness: There is nothing very different and unique here. But when a romance is well written it doesn't need to be unusual. It doesn't bother that is a bit predictable.
Would I recommend? I would recommend this book for everyone that enjoy romance. In fact, this is a fast, fun read!
Would I re-read this book? Definitely!!!
Would I re-read this series? Yes!!!
Would I read more from the author? I will definitely keep reading the author.
You MAY read this because you enjoy romance; you should read this because you like sports romance ; you MUST read this because you are looking for some sexy, fun love story!!!
Natalie never seems to settle. Her parents want her to be their choice for her future. She wants to choose on her own. Whether it be who she settles with, or her career, she wants control of that decision.
Ben comes after a self imposed sabbatical. He is helping a friend heal. He is also trying to come to terms about what he will choose for his own future. Right now it is uncertain.
These characters seem to have a lot in common. The sparks fly off them right from the start. While the pace moves along rather quick, the romance snuck right in with some heat that punched. I was very pleased with the banter, and it was an easy yet comfortable read. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
***This copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.
I was hooked on this book right from the beginning. The scene with Ben returning home was the clincher for me. I laughed so much and that was the feel for the rest of the book. I loved Ben and Natalie together. They had great chemistry and they got one another. One of my favorite things was the Lord of the Rings reference and their private joke with it. Though this book has a light playful vibe there are some serious emotional moments as well. They tug at your heart. The animals also won me over to this book. I'm a sucker for pets in books and Carrie did an awesome job of showing off their uniqueness. I can't wait for the second book in the series because the set up from this book has me eagerly awaiting it. Carrie Quest has gained a new reader with her debut novel.
