There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris:
She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 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 by Penny Reid has long been on my backlist, and when a chance to try Audible Escape for 3 months came along, I grabbed it. Narrated by Jennifer Grace, this refreshing, awkward, delightful romance had me laughing, swooning and listening into the wee hours.
Awkward, funny, friendship, original and unique are the words that come to mind when I think of this audiobook romance.
Jennifer Grace does a fantastic job of capturing both Janie Morris and Quinn Sullivan’s unique, quirky, socially awkward characters.
This romance is a mix of women’s fiction, friendships and firsts. We witness character self-doubt, flaws and growth. There is even a suspenseful thread and a wee bit of drama that is surprisingly short-lived.
It was fun, sweet, adorkable, and I loved it but it could have been 6 hours. The story meanders a bit, but still I laughed, identified with characters and situations and even becoming involved by shaking my head and shouting 😱 “No, don’t do that!” or “get um.”
Would I recommend it? Yes, but I also cringe at beginning Neanderthal Marries Human (Knitting in the City #1.5), because it’s over thirteen hours. I know I will enjoy it, but the ride will be long and there will be detours. It’s on my Audible App 🤣not even going to lie.Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid was an adorkable, fun RomCom with plenty of firsts. #audiobook #AudibleEscape Click To Tweet
