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.

Well read, cute but too long

The author read really well. With a lot of these indie romances the narrators sound like automatons, so it was refreshing that Jennifer Grace did really well.
The story was cute but about halfway through I was exhausted by Janie's inner monologue. She was dense to the point of stupidity at times. I know some people don't pick up social cues, but she blatantly disregarded what was right in front of her.
The story could have been wrapped in half the time, but the series is very good Penny Reid has really grown from strength to strength.

Not my favourite book

I think the author must have been told to use a thesaurus. There were odd phrases such as "my breath abdicated my lungs" and "I smashed my lips together" and "my hair crashed over my shoulders". One phrase that confused me (although probably not thesaurus-led) was "I slid my teeth sideways". Unless I misheard, this lady must be a genetically modified elephant as I understand their teeth move forwards in their mouth.
The story was of a longer Mills and Boon style but I quite fancied some easy listening trite romance after my previous blood and gore detective story. I'm going back to death and doom again now as it was just too poorly written, obvious and unfunny and has put me off this style of book for a while. This isn't recommendable unless you have a very low reading age, in which case, enjoy!!
