Contemporary Romance Joint Review: Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid

Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid (Kinitting in The City #1.5)

Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
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).

Awww, this was so romantic and gorgeous, peeps, I got teary-eyed in the end. You had to be really cold-hearted not to! As Penny described it, this is a tribute to fans of Janie & Quinn, and it certainly is. As a die hard fan of the couple, I was ecstatic. We get to see Quinn proposing and the whole shindig with organising a big, fluffy wedding for these two. Lots and lots of fun guaranteed!

I couldn't agree more K.! This book is adorable and Janie & Quinn's fans will not be disappointed. I will admit though, I was a little concerned and unsure at first, but as the book progressed I couldn't help but fall in love with these characters all over again. There were laughter and tears, a myriad of emotions, whirlwind of wedding planning, and just so many sweet and touching moments - my heart totally melted!

I mean come on, Vika! How could you resist the proposal? Quinn planned everything to a tee, and then Janie went and ruined it all with her nervous spouting of trivia *grinning* It was absolutely enchanting.

As I said, peeps, Quinn proposes, and then Janie panics thinking that they were only together for 5 months and to prove that their relationship is strong they have to have a big, stressful wedding. And she goes all out...

Poor Quinn! *laughing* He has his hands full with Janie and her propensity of getting herself into "these" situations. But how could you not love her? She is smart, quirky, and altruistic to a fault, which makes her socially awkward at times, but so lovable. He can't resist, even his surly demeanor and bossiness give way and we get to see a bit of Quinn's softer side.

So expect an unforgettable proposal, a big wedding, and in-between... we get to witness the pre-wedding shenanigans orchestrated by the ladies of the knitting group, including one very hilarious and eventful Vegas bachelorette party - these ladies certainly know how to have a great time! But I'm keeping mum on the details, because what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! *winks*

Including fat Elvis, right? *giggles* Not only we see softer side to Quinn, we meet his parents for the first time which on its own is a tearjerker. We also find some redeeming qualities in Janie's sister and have an unexpected, wonderful surprise from Nico.

Overall, it's a must read for the fans of Penny Reid, - wonderful, romantic and hilarious. 8.5/10 from me. Highly recommended and can be read after book #1 independent of any other book although it would contain spoilers for book #2 and #3.

Yes! This is a great read and I absolutely agree with Karina that you definitely need to read at least the first two books before embarking onto this wedding planning adventure with Janie & Quinn. So guys, if you love contemporary romance and love to laugh you have to read Penny's books! I'm certain you'll love them.

It's 8.5/10 from me as well and it's highly recommended.

Пенни - это наша скромница, комсомолка и красавица, и я не знаю, почему она никак не перестаёт удивляться пятизвёздочным рецензиям, которые так и сыпятся на её книги! Вот и в этот раз она предупредила всех, что эта книга - на самом деле не настоящая книга, а посвящение фанатам Дженни и Куинна, и что многим она придётся не по вкусу. Ерунда и бред, вот что я вам скажу, наши дорогие читатели! Неандерталка Выходит Замуж За Человека - милая, романтичная, умная комедия, оставившая меня в слезах, и читать её следует обязательно.

Не могу ни согласиться с Кариной! Очаровательная книга для фанатов этой замечательной пары - Дженни и Куинна. Признаюсь, я немного волновалась что эта книга не оправдает мои ожидания, но Пенни опять меня удивила; в персонажей ее книг сложно не влюбиться. Тут были и смех, и слезы, несметное количество эмоций, планирование грандиозной свадьбы и еще много сладких и трогательных моментов - мое сердце прямо растаяло.

Эту книгу можно читать как продолжение первой книги серии, однако лучше всего хотя бы прочитать сначала книгу вторую, чтобы понять что происходит с Элизабет и Нико.

Дженни остаётся самой собой, портя романтическую попытку Куинна попросить её руки в Лондонском Тауэре смешнейшим поведением. Она также безумно волнуется в типичной для Дженни манере, что они были вместе всего лишь 5 месяцев и не прошли через множество стрессовых ситуаций, которые ожидает пару более долговечную, поэтому она решает, так сказать, "закалить огнём" и себя и Куинна и закатывает грандиозное приготовление к свадьбе, чтобы проверить чувства обоих.

Куинн неожиданно для читателя показывает свою чувствительную, романтичную и милую сторону, которая не может не завоевать наши сердца, и мы также наконец-то встречаем его родителей.

В общем, отличнейшая книга, смешная, нежная, неловкая и милая. 8.5/10 от меня. Очень рекомендую!

Бедный Куинн! *смеется* Дженни совсем взбаламутила его жизнь своей экстравагантностью и склонностью попадать в разные интересные ситуации, но ее сложно не любить. Дженни забавна, умна, и альтруистична. И строгий фасад Куинна медленно тает под воздействием её чар.

Но, не сомневайтесь, что и в этом романе много юмора и любви - от незабываемого предложения руки и сердца к свадебным планам и торжеству, а между ними... в веселом, незабываемом девичнике в Лас Вегасе с подругами Дженни. И смею вас уверить, что эти барышни знают как хорошо провести время! Но ни слова больше, читайте сами...

Фанатам серии очень рекомендую!  От меня - 8.5/10.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
