Review: Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid

Neanderthal Marries Human CoverTitle: Neanderthal Marries Human (Knitting in the City #1.5)
Author: Penny Reid
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Comedy
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Book description:

There are three things you should know about Quinn Sullivan: 1) He is madly in love with Janie Morris, 2) He’s not above playing dirty to get what (or who) he wants, and 3) He doesn’t know how to knit.

After just five months of dating Janie, Quinn—former Wendell and unapologetic autocrat—is ready to propose marriage. In fact, he’s more than ready. If it were up to Quinn, he would efficiently propose, marry, and beget Janie with child all in the same day—thereby avoiding the drama and angst that accompanies the four stages of pre-matrimony: engagement, meeting the parents, bachelor/bachelorette party, and overblown, superfluous wedding day traditions. But Janie, much to Quinn’s dismay, tosses a wrench in his efficacious endeavors and challenges him to prove his devotion by going through the matrimonial motions, no matter how minute and mundane.

Will Quinn last until the wedding day? Or will he yield to his tyrant impulses?

Regardless, one thing is for certain, Quinn Sullivan will have to learn to expect the Spanish Inquisition (i.e. the unexpected) if he plans to have and keep Janie Morris as his wife.

This book is not a standalone. It is the sequel to ‘Neanderthal Seeks Human,’ it is book #1.5 in the ‘Knitting in the City’ series, and it is a full length, 100k word novel.

Again, you must read ‘Neanderthal Seeks Human’ first before reading this book.

This book is written in first person, alternating POV (Janie Morris AND Quinn Sullivan; but more Janie than Quinn).



Sweet, touching, flirty, and wonderful! ❤ I’m head-over-heels in love with this series!

Before you read on, you MUST read the first book to know all about Janie and Quinn’s whirlwind love story. And trust me, you WILL enjoy every page of that book–just like this one. 😉 This second installment in the “Knitting in the City” series is all about forgiveness, growth, and being hopeful about the future. Janie and Quinn both have their troubles and inner conflicts, but together they feel like they can conquer anything. They’re each a sort of guiding light (and force) for one another. They drive each other to be better people. *cue awws*

Janie is waiting for the other shoe to drop because everything seems perfect with Quinn. A little too perfect. They’ve never had a fight, they love each other to the moon and back, but they haven’t gone through those trials and tribulations she thinks couples should have if they want to get married. People who want to spend the rest of their LIVES together need some troubles to show that they can get through anything. She has a point, and Quinn agrees to an extent. However, watching these two go through hoops (and the other things that come their way) is incredibly amusing. 😉

Like I said, I’ve fallen in love with this whole series and can’t wait to read the rest of the installments!

This book gave us a better idea of the exciting things that are yet to come from Janie’s friends. I didn’t realize until I looked up this book after reading Neanderthal Seeks Human (Book 1), that there are MANY more books waiting for me to 1-click! Including Kat and Dan’s story–which is coming! SQUEEE!! Their romance is one I’m extremely eager to read about! 😀

Start your obsession with the “Knitting in the City” series NOW!

***Don’t forget BOOK 1 is FREE for a limited time only! Get on it! 😉
