“5 stars!!! Smart, funny, sexy and all around wonderful!” -Book Babes Unite Blog
“Such a fun read! A quirky, nerdy, shy girl and a sexy, hot alpha male.” -Goodreads reviewer
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 to make her an offer she can't refuse.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
No job. No boyfriend. Nowhere to live. The day isn’t exactly going well for Janie Morris—until an incredibly handsome stranger offers her the opportunity of a lifetime. There’s more than one catch, of course, and it’s a delight to read on as Janie navigates (well, awkwardly fumbles through) a tumultuous, yet exciting time in her life. She’s a flawed heroine: her anxious overthinking, often on display via her blurting out of random facts and details to those around her, makes her character resoundingly human, adding humorous relatability to this romantic comedy. Lighthearted, fun and easy to read, Neanderthal Seeks Human has us excited about the rest of Penny Reid’s Knitting in the City series.

Neanderthal Seeks Human
Funny and enjoyable read. Did not like the fact that is a sequel to true HEA.
Four stars because...
Janie’s naïveté about Quinn’s identity becomes rather annoying in the second quarter of the book, rendering it a bit painful and slow to get through — but things finally take off in the second half. While some later scenes were a bit far-fetched and predictable, the storyline and character development were cute. Probably won’t read the rest of the series, though.
OMG I LOVED IT
So so good! I read it start to finish non stop! Some of Janie’s ramblings went on and on, but that makes her endearing. Fell in love with Quinn! Mr Mchotiepants! On to the next book!
