Happily Ever Ninja by Penny Reid 

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Humor

From the USA Today Best Selling Author of ‘Truth or Beard’.

There are three things you need to know about Fiona Archer… I would tell you what they are, but then I’d have to kill you. 

But I can tell you that Fiona’s husband—the always irrepressible and often cantankerous Greg Archer—is desperately in love with his wife. He aches for her when they are apart, and is insatiable when they are together. Yet as the years pass, Greg has begun to suspect that Fiona is a ninja. A ninja mom. A ninja wife. A ninja friend. After fourteen years of marriage, Greg is trying not to panic. Because Fiona’s talent for blending in is starting to resemble fading away. 

However, when unexpected events mean Fiona must take center stage to keep her family safe, her response stuns everyone—Greg most of all. It seems like Greg’s wish has come true. 

Except… not. 

When all is said and done, can Greg handle this new version of his wife? Will his irrepressible cantankerousness push her away? Or can the couple find a way forward without either being forced to step back into the shadows? 

This is a full length, 100k word novel, and is the 5th book in the Knitting in the City Series. All books in the series can be read as a standalone except book #1.5

Happily Ever Ninja (Knitting in the City #5) by Penny Reid
I Loved Fiona and Greg in Ninja at First Sight! Love their witty banter. I was hanging on to my happy thoughts and feelings as I read it. I even had some moments while I was reading I realized l was smiling......sitting in the cafe at work reading and smiling. What must my co-workers think? A solid FOUR Stars and then I read Happily Ever Ninja and thought "Well, that was......different".

I'm not saying it was bad by any means.....I was hit with the unexpected......Ex-CIA, Kidnappings, Soccer Practice, Knitting Groups, and Nigerian Oil Rigs.

This book was okay for me. I wanted more romance.  I wanted the Fiona and Greg from college. Not the married with children, demanding careers, and too much shite happening in my life Fiona and Greg. I wasn't expecting that and I didn't want that. I was BLINDSIDED!!! Gah!!

I'm thinking I should have skipped the prequel and just dove into the book head first. I probably would have enjoyed it more.

About Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
