Neanderthal Seeks Human - Book Review


This is a full-length, 110k word novel and is the first book in the Knitting in the City series.

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.

Janie is having a rough day, her boyfriend cheated on her, now she lost her job! Christ what is a girl supposed to do? The hottie security guard escorts her from the building. But it's not the last time she see's him. An uneventful night leads them to an eventful future. Seems he's been watching her, as much as she's been watching him. But with her ex trying to get her back, can she have a future with Mr. Hottie? Or will her labeling everything get in the way? 

My Janie - 

Janie annoyed me for awhile, she over thinks everything and over talks. Sometimes I wish she'd just shut up, nod and smile. But then I realize, she isn't going to do that. She's not meant to be like that, she is a thinker, statistics are her MO. Quinn, seems down to Earth and an all around good guy. Jon, the ex, ehhh, that was a $hitty reason to cheat. I didn't buy it. He could have gotten the same results a different way. But rather than try, he was bad and lazy, per Janie.

My Quinn - 

This is my second Penny Reid book. There is no sex in this book. Its hinted at, you use your own imagination, but no one is getting down and dirt and a pounding. Quick read. There were parts that were funny and there were parts that were to wordy. Its like she needed to meet a word quota. It was slow in areas, but still not a bad read
