Publisher's Summary

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.

Could Not Stop Listening.....

This is a really fun listen. On the surface this is a nerd-gets-hot-guy story, but Janie is not a typical nerd and the author does a good job making her character's insecurities believable and not annoying. Janie is a 26 year old, smart girl that is insecure and querky due to her background. She starts out having a bad day but meets Quinn, the good looking building security guard, that helps her land a new job. They develop a relationship despite Janie's insecurities, ex boyfriend issues and family dramas.

There were parts of the story that were predictable (Janie not realizing Quinn's position in the company), but there is enough other stuff going on with the characters to keep me engaged and listening. I also enjoyed the humor of this story, I liked the eccentric trivia and Janie's internal dialogues.

Over all this is a very solid contemporay romance/ chic-lit story and a highly enjoyable listen. I highly recommend this one - especially at $6 with the Whispersync.

Audible Listener Seeks More From This Author

Would you consider the audio edition of Neanderthal Seeks Human to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version. However it is so great to have a title that is fun, but quite intelligent. I loved the hyperbole. Ms. Reid can really wax lyrically. Well done!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved jane, however the story allows you to like Quinn aka Mr. McHotPants just as much

Have you listened to any of Jennifer Grace’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I thought her performance absolutely wonderful. It would be great if she would do the next selection "Neanderthal Marries Human". Her reading brings Janie to life.

If you could take any character from Neanderthal Seeks Human out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Quinn. He is so smooth and complicated, but yet so human.

Any additional comments?

I would love to be able to listen to Neanderthal Marries Human, My research says that both selections were set to be done in "Audio" and available by May or June of 2014. However it appears audible is only offering us the one selection. I guess i will need to try and find the second selection on my own. I normally can and do wait for a follow-up title to present itself. However, I enjoyed this one so much, this week-end I am going to try and find the next audible title on my own. This really is a "Smart" read.
