<— Whoa! This one is very popular amongst our rom-com (romance comedy) reading buddies, and there are two more books that have been released in the series. In fact, book #3 was JUST released!
The series is called “Knitting in the City” and yep… I was all… knitting? Really? Er… okay. But going by these recommendations below, I really don’t think “knitting” factors into it all that much. And if it does, it sounds hilarious! 😛
Anne: not sure if you’ve read this one or heard about it but I just HAD to let you know how amazing it is. It is sweet, funny, SO clever, and sexy and I’m only at 44% but just wanted to rave about it to someone! The blurb doesn’t do it justice, so it is turning out to be the best book surprise of the summer for me. Loving it! Janie is so sweet, bordering on a genius with amazing smarts but is so beautifully naive when it comes men. She has zero control over what comes out of her mouth when she is flustered and, in the presence of Quinn, who she has nic-named Sir Mchotpants (who she thinks is a security guard but actually owns the comapny), this happens frequenty with hilarious results. I can’t wait to see where this one goes, PLEASE check it out, I’m sure it is something you will enjoy!
Evieve: Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid was so much fun!
Sara: Fav book Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid (very funny)
Mariah: Human Seeking Neanderthal is AWESOME!!!! I would totally take advantage of this 99cent bargain! I loved it so much. It is a new 5 star read for me. Well written and very witty! It is reminiscent of Tilly and Tess (Heller and Blood Fued). You will not be sorry!
Stella: just finished Neanderthal Seeks Human & I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this book. It was hilarious, smart & witty. I have to say that I couldn’t put the book down. I loved the main character Janie! I hope you get a chance to read it. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Jacee: Friends without Benefits by Penny Reid is good. So funny.
Karen: I just read an ARC of Love Hacked (Penny Reid’s new book) and the hero is smokin hot! He’s much younger than the heroine. He’s also a genius computer hacker with a chip on his shoulder. I loved it!!
P.S. The author states —> “…each book can be read as a standalone.”
About book #1:
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.
