Blog Tour Stop Contemporary Romance Review + Giveaway: Happily Ever Ninja by Penny Reid

Happily Ever Ninja by Penny Reid (Knitting in The City #5)


Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
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


Amazon kindle US/UK

9/10

You know I love Penny Reid's book, right, guys? But this one, this one took the cake! |It was an amalgamation of my favorite parts - a kick butt heroine, a complex, truthful relationship and some top notch banter.


Greg and Fiona teased us with snippets of their relationship throughout the rest of the books in the series, and finally they had their own entree in Ninja at First Sight which intrigued the hell out of the reader.

Then came out this wonderful book, and we've discovered the full extent of Fiona and Greg's awesomeness. 

I think, anyone who's ever been in a long-term relationship can recognise themselves in this couple. They bicker all the way through the most unholy and tense situations and there is an absolute belief from each side that their way of dealing with things is the only right one. I was surprised how much I could relate to Fiona. She kept going through the same stumbling block with Greg all over again. He would not admit that she was capable of protecting herself just fine, and he would not listen to her advice believing that what he was doing was the only right decision. As a result he kept messing up, and Fiona kept trying to clean up his mess.

*sigh*

I hope my husband won't see this review, but My God, was this familiar or what?  I can recall plenty of situations when I had to step aside and let him make a mistake because he thought he knew better.


Happily Ever Ninja
in many ways is a very surprising book, but also very rewarding. Miss Reid managed to fuse her unique geeky charm and awkward cuteness with plenty of action reminiscent of Taylor Stevens type of fiction, and I absolutely loved it. I hope with all my heart you will too as it was one of the best books I read this year. I love how the author's style evolves with each book and how the readers keep discovering her many new facets. Well played, Miss Reid, well played.

Вы знаете как сильно я люблю книги Ренни Рид, правда, ребята? Но вот эта, вот эта меня просто потрясла! Эта была прямо-таки амальгамма моих любимых жанров - интеллектуальной комедии, любовного романа и триллера, наполненного экшен.

Грег и Фиона дразнили аппетит читателя кусочками своих отношений на протяжение всех книг серии, однако по-настоящему их история начала раскрываться в предыдущей повести: Ниндзя С Первого Взгляда. Однако узнали мы насколько они шикарны как характеры только в книге этой.

Я думаю, что те из нас, кто пробыл в долголетних отношениях, с лёгкостью узнают себя в этой паре. Они постоянно ворчат друг на друга по мелочам, даже в самых опасных и взрывных ситуациях, и каждая сторона считает, что она знает лучше.

*поднимая глаза к небу*

Надеюсь, мой муж не прочитает эту рецензию, так как я могу назвать множество примеров когда мне легче было стоять в стороне и дать ему совершить ошибку, чем попытаться убедить его, что он сделал неправильный выбор. В этом отношении Грег гораздо хуже, и я очень симпатизировала Фионе, которая просто кипела от возмущения, когда муж не доверял ей в области, где она была специалистом и постоянно ухудшал ситуацию, в которой они находились.

Долго и Счастливо Ниндзя во многих отношениях книга, полная сюрпризов. Мисс Рид умудрилась перемешать характерный для неё экцентричный, острый и очень актуальный юмор, милейших гиков и фикшн в стиле Тэйлор Стивенс, что мне ну просто жутко понравилось! Она постоянно удивляет читателя, раскрывая всё новые грани своего таланта, и я надеюсь, что эта книга полюдится вам, так же как и мне. Читайте!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
