Ninja at First Sight by Penny Reid

Title: Ninja at First Sight 
Series: Knitting in the City #4.75
Author:  Penny Reid
Release Date: November 21, 2015 
Publisher:  Caped Publishing


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?
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. 

This novella is the expanded origin story for Greg and Fiona. The first 16k words of this novella are from the short scenes included in 'Scenes from the City', which is no longer for sale.

Oh my gosh! I absolutely loved this novella.
I loved everything about it. The characters, the flow, the story, the romance.

Greg is an ex-marine who is back in college. He is smart, loves to debate, has a British accent and, of course, he's hot!
Con: Greg has a girlfriend.

Our heroine Fiona is smart, quiet and likes to watch people. She is happy to start college and finally be away from home. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of fourteen and pretty much has had no freedom. She picked a college far away from home for a reason. She is also inexperienced in the love department but she is ready to start dating.

From the moment Fiona and Greg meet they know they share a connection. You can feel how they try to avoid it but it's really a losing battle.

I can't recommend Ninja at First Sight enough. I thought the writing was phenomenal. This is my first Penny Reid book and I feel sad for her prior books because I know this is going to be my favorite. 

5/5 Fangs
