Tour: Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid

Synopsis: 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).

Also in the Series:
Neanderthal Seeks Human (Knitting in the City, #1) Friends Without Benefits (Knitting in the City, #2) Love Hacked (Knitting in the City, #3)


Oh Penny, how I love thee and all the wonderful words that your mind comes up with....

Penny is one of the more unique authors I've read. Her books are smart, they're quirky, and while some of the characters are awkward, they're all full of soul and very real.

The time has come for  Quinn to propose to Janie and the crazy way in which the proposal goes down was just hilarious to me, but it also showed me that Quinn really knew the real Janie and the way she was going to react to the whole situation. These are two characters that are complete opposites, but no matter their differences, they both know and love each other deeply.

Janie and Quinn are facing their demons in this journey to their happily ever after, but the road that we are lucky enough to travel with them, is full of insecurities, laughs, intelligent conversations and love, lots of love, and acceptance.

What makes this book an incredible tale is the character and story development. This author is incredibly talented when it comes to writing a story, it's one of the few writers who I can trust to give me something completely different from what I've read before and who will make me enjoy every single page.

I didn't give much of the story because I'm hoping that people will go and buy the book and live this adventure with Quinn and Janie. If you haven't done it yet, read Neanderthal Seeks Human (book 1) of this series, I promise you won't regret it.

Well done Penny! 

About Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).
By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
