This book is hot. Very hot. It tells the story of Joel Hannover (or The Panty Whisperer). He is happily going through life sharing his exemplary sexual talents with a variety of lucky women, and having a pretty good time. Enter Quinn, the woman he wants but can't have. The story is well paced with the perfect combination of heat, humour and depth. I loved all the characters, and while Joel and Quinn are absolutely fantastic and I adored them, the highlight for me was Tommy. That guy is f***ing hilarious! I am a big fan of Sloane Howell's writing, and The Panty Whisperer is just another example of how great he is.
Joel is a notorious playboy who sleeps with ever woman he is attracted to and then its over. The first few stories I was ready to throw this book at the wall as Joel was annoying, egotistical and full his own importance. As the stories go on he becomes a human being instead of a robotic person who is only out to work and get laid. Quinn softens Joel and makes him realise that life is more about living than existing. He also realises that the life he leads is not where he wants his life to stay. I wanted to hate this book but after the first few stories I started to like both the characters and but the end I was a total convert to loving Joel. They started as short stories and I think without them being altogether I would have missed a great story and found a new writer that I am excited to read more by.
