What’s it about
Janie’s boyfriend cheats on her and she is fired from her job, later that day she meets a security guard, Quinn, who escorts her out but gets her an interview at his office.
POV- Janie’s POV and epilogue in Quinn’s
Funny parts- yes. But it’s a certain kind of humour. I found it HILARIOUS but others might not.
Sad parts- none really
Love triangle- no
Super insecure character- Janie is insecure
Trigger warning- none
Realistic scale- 1/5
Pick this up if
You like a big cast of quirky characters. You want a light, funny romance. You want laugh out loud funny moments. You like an alpha hero.
Don’t pink this up if
You don’t want something unrealistic. You don’t want something cliché. You don’t like naive main characters.
The story was cute and fun and easy to read. The story was completely unrealistic yet hilarious. Janie’s obliviousness was a bit strange but it adds to the story. Neanderthal Seeks Human honestly isn’t Penny Reid’s best work probably because it was her first. It was still amazing and if you’re done reading all her books (it can be done! I’ve read them all) then pick this up.
To read or to not read?
Janie is an unique character, she is awkward and nerdy and self deprecating and spews strange facts, if you don’t find it appealing skip it. Quinn is an alpha male and if you don’t want a hero like that, skip it.
