Synopsis (Goodreads):
There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) 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.
Thoughts on Neanderthal Seeks Human: Okay. I'm going to admit it. I found Janie's cluelessness to be kinda sweet. I mean, the girl just COULDN'T read a signal. Not at all. Subtle flew right over her head. And her unnerved babbling made me laugh. The fact that she couldn't see who or what Quinn was until it was shoved in her face made me cringe in sympathy for her.

Poor girl.

Although, she did get the domineering hottie in the end, so I guess she didn't do too poorly.

So. Janie's friends were a hoot. Janie's social awkwardness alternately made me cringe and give a little fist pump when she ran roughshod over her issues. She was fun. Analytical and hilariously odd at times, but fun. Poor Quinn never stood a chance against her. Once he noticed her, he was seduced by her particular brand of awkward.

Meanwhile, Janie's family was...not so fun. I'm trying to imagine family holidays and...no. Just no. You can't choose your family, amirite?!?!

There's a pretty substantial amount of books lined up in this series and I'm eyeballing them now. Because why not? Crazy is always fun!
