    "Reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock movie that had a similar plot. Except that this is a romance. How could one not read it?"

    "This is a high quality thriller. It doesn't have much romance, it's more about the action and suspense to be honest. I thought it was well-written though and would read it again."

    "I recently read the book "Suddenly You", and I really liked it a lot. The book is about a woman that hires a man to have a night of passion with her, and it's really interesting to read about all the feelings that that woman will discover after this experience. Not a book for a young audience, but surely interesting."

    "This was the first I read by this author. I am not sure I would read any other. These people are not likable at all and I do not know why anyone would be involved with them. It was well-written, I will say that."

    "If you want to laugh at a very enjoyable romance, then Neanderthal Seeks Human is the book for you. It is a contemporary book that is different than the others in this genre. It does not drown you in a lot of detailed sexy scenes, which takes away from so many romance books. Penny Reid is clever, witty and downright funny in telling the story of Janie."

    "This novel was very well written. Julia Quinn is an excellent novelist and the work she has done with charities is amazing. Colin was an extremely deep character which seemed to get deeper at every turn. Penelope's love for him reminds me of love I experienced when I was younger. It seems like once you start dating someone, you get to know the real them. This book encapsulates this theme throughout. Overall a great plot. The ending left me a little dissatisfied though. However, it's more about the journey than the destination in my opinion. This book is not too heavy like some of the other romance novels I read. A nice casual read for all ages."
