From the USA Today Best Selling Author of ‘Truth or Beard’
What do a cynical former Marine and a sheltered former Olympic contender have in common?
He has a girlfriend and she’s never been kissed.
He’s sullenly sarcastic and she’s earnestly empathetic.
He can’t stop thinking about her.
She knows she should keep her distance.
Nevertheless, when opposites attract the results may be unexpected, but they’re also undeniably magnetic.
‘Ninja at First Sight’ is a standalone, prequel novella (for book 5 of the Knitting in the City Series, ‘Happily Ever Ninja’) and is 40k words.
Sigh! I have another book hangover! I love Penny! Her writing just draws you into the story. Her characters are believable and lovable. Now I have to wait a WHOLE month for the story to continue! 😋 I curse you, Penny, and your wonderful writing.
1) If you love to get the background on characters you adore 2) Will read anything that Penny Reid writes 3) Need a story to make you giggle and swoon - stop do not go to item number 4 and one click this gem of a novella.
Novellas are often hard to review. Depending upon their purpose a) intro to a series b) an origin story or c) a complete story in short form. Well, this one delivers on a through c. Okay, well not really a because Greg and Fiona are introduced in the earlier Knitting in the City books. But this is their story - actually - their origin. And I love it. It funny, touching, and well written- well paced story. I'm not going to rehash the story as it is a quick read. But there isn't anything I can say I didn't like because I loved it. You really get a deep feeling about what the characters are about and can instantly connect to both. But I will tell you, Greg is going to give Alex a run for his money as my favorite Ms Reid hero as I progress to Happily Ever Ninja when it releases in January.
Interestingly, you can read this novella as a standalone. It's a complete story all on it's own. You don't need to read the others in the series in order to understand the characters or plot line. And she ends the novella right where I love most of my romance to end - HEA. However, if you haven't read Ms Reid before, this is a great intro to her humorous style. If you love Ms. Reid, you won't be disappointed. 5 of 5 ninja stars.

The book is excellent. Very refreshing ideas and plot. Lots of complicated words for me to look up...except I am probably too lazy to do it:P
