Title: Neanderthal Seeks Human
Series: Knitting in the City, #1
Author: Penny Reid
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

This is a full-length, 110k word novel and is the first book in the Knitting in the City series. 

 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.

Neanderthal Seeks Human begins when Janie has the worst day ever.. She loses her boyfriend, job, and is now homeless. She's not really sure what to do or where to go next, and to top it all of the hot guy security guard she's been watching escorts her from the building after she's fired from her job. To Janie its is truly the worst day ever. And Janie isn't the normal type of girl nope not at all. She's very aloof, and extremely smart. Now she has to figure out what to do, and her hottie security guard helps her out by getting her a job with an awesome company. Now she and Quinn seem to be forming some sort of relationship, albeit really slowly...

 Janie is like no other heroine I've ever read about. She is truly amazing, and funny as all get out. I think she is a mix between Bones (from the t.v. show Bones) and a female version of Sheldon (from the Big Bang Theory) Then you have the man she's lusting over, Quinn who is a total alpha male manwhore, who has no idea who to "date." But he knows there is something pulling him to Janie, even if she doesn't see it. These two have a slow go at their relationship but they eventually find it. This book at me wondering what the heck was going on at times, then had me rolling on the floor laughing. The characters were awesome, and the plot line was amazing. The only thing that bugged me was it felt like it had a really slow start but other than that I really really liked this book, and I thought it was very good.
