**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, 105k word novel.**
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.
**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)**

Janie is the Shero we want
The first 1.5 books of this series may just happen to be my favorite. While this book in particular is rather fast paced at times and unnecessarily indulgent in others, it shares the story of Quinn’s Family, which in my view makes it worthy of a 0.5 sequel. I love how practical Janie is, and how pragmatic. She is good but not without flaws. That is an important balance - it keeps her interesting. The character development in Janie over the 1.5 books is certainly a high point.
My biggest issue with this book (and many new adult/chick lit books) is an over simplification of feminism. It certainly made my cringe as Janie requires Quinn to have several conversations regarding which chivalrous actions offended her most. Feminism/Women’s empowerment is tremendously bigger and more important than who opens your door. The concept of date rape and sexual assault themes in the book; that may have been a more fruitful placement of feminist themes that would elevate the intellectual integrity of the book by (for me) a lot.
Another fun read by Penny Reid. She has the best quirky characters that make you laugh out loud and appreciate the difference in people. I love her works and recommend this one too.
You will not regret picking up this book!! It's a fun, witty, engaging, hot ride from start to finish. Get it now!!!
