{Heather #Review} Contemporary Romance: Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid

NEANDERTHAL MARRIES HUMAN by Penny Reid
Genre: Contemporary
Series: Knitting In the City #1.5
Format: ebook from author
Length: 417 pages
Publisher: Caped Publishing (June 14, 2014)

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.

REVIEW:

It is no secret that I love Penny Reid books, nor that I love Janie and Quinn. It's also not a secret that I am brutally honest when it comes to reviews, so what follows are my honest and true thoughts about this book.

It's awesome.

Okay, let me explain. NMH is the sequel to Neanderthal Seeks Human, which you need to read before reading this book (or even this review). I'll wait here while you read it first.



Done? Okay.



This book follows Janie and Quinn as the become engaged, plan their wedding, have shenanigans, and get married. It's the best happily ever after book you'll ever get. There are all kinds of hurdles to over come as well as hijinks to encounter (the entire Las Vegas scene is HILARIOUS), but we also get to see these two after the first blush of love has passed. Not that there's any lessening of the heat that Quinn brings - I doubt there will ever be.



Janie and Quinn do not exist in a vacuum, though, so we get other people's stories as well - specifically, we get the missing wedding scene of Nico and Elizabeth (which is mentioned in Love Hacked but we never get to see). The knitting group is here in full force as are Dan the Security Man, co-worker Stephen, and others (including one of Quinn's slamps!). Things that were left open-ended in NSH are tied up here and wonderfully so. Because it's a Reid romance, none of these are done in cliché ways. This book is as unique and original as all of its predecessors.



Basically you can never go wrong with a Reid Romance, and this book is like meeting with a sassy friend to catch up and have a few new adventures. It's lovely, and I give it my highest recommendation.

Favorite Quote:
I sighed again, this time because his sweet words chased the breath out of me. I grinned like a content cat – which didn’t make any sense, because no other animals but humans smile in order to demonstrate pleasure.
