Neanderthal Seeks Human: A Smart Romance (Knitting in the City, #1)

Neanderthal Seeks Human: A Smart Romance (Knitting in the City, #1) - Penny Reid This book is absolutely hilarious, clever, hot and romantic. Penny Reid's debut instantly made me fall in love with her whimsical, satirical writing, and even worse now I'm craving for more and question myself: was I living under a rock not to read this fabulous book before?

In fact, if you are a fan of Marta Acosta, this will be very similar to her in writing style.

Janie is a klutzy and very cute, clueless girl with an unhealthy fascination with trivia, but she is also a genius accountant with an insane attention to details (her brain just works differently), so when she breaks up with her boyfriend, loses her apartment and her place in his rich daddy's firm, she really doesn't know what to do with her life until the fascinating security guy who escorts her from the premises, starts taking an interest in her life.

Don't take me wrong, she is capable of taking care of herself. It's just she doesn't give that impression to the people who don't know her really well and she is really closed off emotionally. That's why hot and confident in himself Quinn keeps getting confused and flabbergasted by troublesome Miss Morris and his reaction to her. She just doesn't fit the slot, and she actively tries to prevent it. Much hilarity and confusion later, this story ends on a delightfully romantic note, which makes a reader want to hug the book (or in my case, kindle) and sigh ever so happily. Very much recommended.
