Product description

Product Description

Prequel to the USA TODAY BESTSELLER 'Happily Ever Ninja'

What do a cynical former Marine and a sheltered former Olympic contender have in common?
Nothing.
Absolutely nothing.
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.

Oh my lord!! I have a huge smile on my face, I just can't get rid of it, it first happened when I read my first Penny book Grin & Beard it and each and every book makes my heart swell, by smile is a permanent feature while I read her books, they are that good!. The Knitting in the City series, if at all possible just get better with every book! I fell inlove with Janie and Quinn and now, I'm head over heals for the whole knitting group.
I adore Fiona's character, I can identify with her character. She is an idividual, because of her past, she's not swayed to conform or bend to any social expectations, she has a wonderful outlook on life. Now, Greg..... Greg, Mr Swoonworthy. Greg is so, so gorgeous, hot, sexy, set your pants on fire kind of guy with his plum accent, take no prisoner attitude, it's all or nothing with him, I fell head over heels for Greg. I cannot wait to ready about Fiona & Greg in the next book and I'm go glad we got to see how they came together in the beginning! Thank you Penny!!! 5 star read. Oh, and get the audio, the narrator does an amazing job with Greg's accent!

I was gripped people, gripped!!! And I've already read some of those story before in Penny's book 'Scenes from the City'. I always enjoy Penny Reid books, so this is no different.

You start the Knitting in the City series with Fiona already married. So this story is set years earlier when she meets her 'now' husband Greg Archer. Their chemistry is instant, and it sizzles, yes sizzles!!! You can almost touch it, it's written so strong and clear.

From what we know of Fiona so far is she's wise, thoughtful, smart, advice giver of the knitting group. 18 year old Fiona is also thoughtful, wise and smart. Her view on the world is very mature (more so than my view of the world at 18) but it's believable.
Greg is . . . is hard to describe. I don't think I would ever want to meet him if he actually existed, he would tear me to shreds with his smart, sarcastic, droll words. But he's fascinating to read about and he obviously cares deeply for Fiona. Like I said chemistry that you could touch.

Not the funniest of Penny's books but that's not a bad thing and definitely not a downside, the humour in this story is subtle, which suits Fiona. In fact the general tone of this story is very different, muted. It's not high drama, there's no life threatening scenario, there's no massive conflict BUT don't mistake that for being boring. 100% NOT boring, as I said I was gripped, and I devoured the book in one sitting.

So if you are a fan of Penny Reid then this next instalment won't disappoint.

I love Penny Reid's books generally but this one was spectacular. If you've read the other Knitting in the City books, then there are some references that make the book extra-special. If you haven't then read the book anyway because it is set approximately 14 years before the first Knitting in the City book.

The characters that Penny had created are brilliant. Fiona is in college, inexperienced but not naive, smart, ballsy and self-assured. Greg is hilarious, brutally honest, honourable and the type of guy you would love to know in real life. The book is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud in certain places (particularly during a certain conversation around burial plots) but more than that, it will make you wish that Happily Ever Ninja was out today.

Penny Reid's writing is spectacularly entertaining, the humour is quirky and hilarious, and there is real meat on the bones of her stories. The characters are both unbelievable and credible, you will see a little of someone you know in these characters. Her stories cover a range of topics that might surprise you and have you Googling for more information. Warning: You may feel compelled to knit after reading her novels, and there's nothing wrong with that! I can't wait for the next book. Dear Penny, please write faster...
