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.

Maria’s Review

➦Super late to the party here but, ever since reading the 6th book in this series and loving it, I’ve decided to finally get through all of the installments. So yeah, here I go, 4 years too late. lol

➦One thing I do notice with Penny Reid is her love for quirky and somewhat socially awkward characters. They are, of course, endearing and totally hilarious. This heroine here is like a walking talking encyclopedia and doesn’t fail to recite interesting, albeit totally useless to the subject at hand facts whenever she is put in a socially uncomfortable situations.

➦I loved the beginning of the book but the further I kept reading the more I realized that this book is too chick lit for me. I was left mildly unsatisfied by about 70% in and proceeded to lose complete interest by 80. Now, it ain’t a bad book. I just felt like there needed to be more romance on top of all the ott humor. And I wouldn’t have minded more steam. Ok, who are we kidding? I just wanted to read about Sir McHotpants’ big dick.
