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.
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)
Darra's Review:This is the 4th book I have read of Penny Reid and love them all, including Neanderthal marries Human. Absolutely love all the Author's characters. Just reading all the information Janie spews out her mouth makes me feel caught up with interesting trivia. I would love hanging out with the knitting ladies. All of them so far have been great!
Now Janie does drive me nuts, but it would not make a good book unless you yell or laugh at her. Quinn is still awesome. Strong, quiet and has great jokes. I would hate to choose from Quinn and Nico. Both are fantastic. This is about Janie & Quinn getting married. However Nico makes his presence in the book and fall in love with him more. Of course you need to read Friends without Benefits before you read this. You will understand why I am saying this.
So I am not going to give away parts of the book that I laughed my ass my off. However I would love to be part of a knitting group that just talks about the books on FB. Maybe without the knitting and more drinking. They make greats drinks.
Love another of Penny's books. The next should be Nico With Great Benefits in Jello. Winner!
I rate the book a 4.5.
Sunny's Review:I think that I am even more in love with Quinn after this book than I was after the first one. I love him so much! I know that Darra and I differ in this a little bit. I love the fact that he is kind of reserved and you can't tell what he is thinking when looking at him. You get to see some of his POV in this book and it is awesome. Janie is still great and I love her too. There were some issues with her that annoyed me a little bit but when you get done you realize that is just Janie. I mean sometimes I think I want to be her when I grow up. She is freaking hilarious!
If you love Penny Reid's books as much as I do then you will not be disappointed in this one. I am giving it 4.5 stars out of 5. I love it and think you should go get it!!! I do recommend you reading Friends Without Benefits first and obviously you need to read Neanderthal Seeks Human too.
BUY THE BOOKS!!!!
About Penny Reid:
Bio: SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
