Neanderthal Seeks Human: A Smart Romance (Knitting in the City, #1) - Penny Reid

OMG! I laughed so hard at this book. There were some really funny one-liners in here and I loved them!

Janie is so oblivious to the obvious. She wouldn’t see the broad side of a barn, even if it was two feet in front of her! She absolutely brilliant and has random factoids running around in her head and yet she’s oblivious. I love that she spouts off random facts of various information. Her train of thought just runs from one thing to the next until some random factoid pops out!

Quinn is bad-boy turned good-guy. He’s good-looking, rich and trying to be a good guy. He’s already a good-guy, he just doesn’t realize it. He’s attracted to Janie and her random factoids amuse him. He’s amazing perceptive and does what he can to put Janie at ease.

I found myself laughing during this book. I read parts of it out loud to my hubby and he was laughing as well. I can’t wait for the next one! I’m hoping it’s as funny as this one!

Beside the funniness (is that a word?), there were other things I liked about this book. It’s a real-life style romance. Yes, Quinn is rich, but even rich boys need some lovin’. He has a past that catches up him and bizarrely enough encompasses Janie’s life as well. The tension and romance between them hot and fun. Janie’s friends are fierce and protective. This may have taken place in Chicago, but I felt a good ole Southern Lynching coming on at one point in the story! The text messages from Quinn had me laughing!

My favorite one?

Friendship is like peeing in your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel it.

Just gives you warm and fuzzies doesn’t it?

Now, my favorite part? Janie is the pretty but nerdy girl from high school. The one who’s social inept, gets laughed at, doesn’t really fit in. Yet, in this story, she gets the guy. The gets the rich, funny, charming, good-looking rich guy. That’s my favorite part.

My only complaint about the book is Quinn’s past and current activities. There’s definitely something secret going on. We never found out what that was and dammit! I want to know! I’m wondering if we find out in later books…….

I’m ready for the next on in the series! Now bring it on!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
