Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid (Audiobook)

Narrated by: Sebastian York and Jennifer Grace

♥ ♥ ♥ ½ To be honest I completely skipped over this book and moved on to the second, thinking it was short novella/second epilogue kind of thing… it's not. It is a full length book. I came back to read it now, because I am OH so very much looking forward to Dan’s book release (March) and Ms. Reid mentioned that his book was for people who have read the entire series - if you haven't, you may not get the references.. so I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything.
The book is very much more of Janie and her quirks. Quinn trying to get her to marry him, which, I was enjoying it until Janie started getting all “women's rights" on me. She doesn't like Quinn holding the door, pulling out her chair.. she doesn't like that she had the spa to herself because Quinn has money.. she doesn't like that she is getting “prepped" polished, plucked, pedicured etc. That things have to be done because of tradition… but then why is she even wanting her lazy lack-of-a-father to walk her down the aisle… because it's tradition… she says!! Ugh, talk about contradiction! that I have given a somewhat spoiler (sorry) and got that off my chest, the rest was quite good. I loved the Vegas scene read by Sebastian York! He made that scene come alive!  It was funny and silly in perfect Penny Reid fashion, I loved the extra bits of Dan I got to see… YEAH!! And the lead up to Nico and Elizabeth's book. Jennifer Grace did a fantastic job narrating Janie. She spoke just like I would imagine Janie would.

   I am glad I went back and read this book and I can't wait till March!!! Dan’s book is gonna be good!!

The Blurb:

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.

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).
