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.
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.
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 was not a sunshine and rainbows book. It was about a married couple who tries to get on with their lives by making sure their children are normal, the bills are paid, and they’re on the same page. It was not about passionate love, rather, it was about enduring love. How much can you take or give OR sacrifice for the person you devoted your life to. In short, it was the bomb diggity.
Though I started reading this without expecting anything, I was a bit giddy because I waited for this book to come out for so long. After reading about the other four characters in this series, I was wondering how the hell will Penny Reid make a married life seem entertaining or readable. I was ready to get disappointed or get bored because I don’t think it’s possible for me to get into this kind of story since I am not married. But of course it wouldn’t be a Penny book if it doesn’t have surprises, because Happily Ever Ninja just kicked my all time fave Neanderthal Seeks Human off the top spot of ultimate favorites.
It was refreshing, exciting, and captivating. I never thought it would be possible to gather elements that has no business with each other, and mix them into one amazing story that would be very hard to put down. It’s not everyday that you get to read a book that would geek you out and flutter your heart at the same time.
The main characters, Fiona and Greg, despite their differences managed to show how relationships, specifically marriage, isn’t all about just love. It’s all about how you make it work through the years and stick by it through thick or thin. That the most important thing in any relationship, married or not, is communication. Anyone could make your heart flutter in seconds with a few words, but to be able to spend a lifetime with someone, one must find a person who’s willing to talk with you for hours.
After swooning over the first four/five books in this series, I understand now why Fiona and Greg’s story was released later than the others, because it showed the bit of reality every couple in-love is bound to face. I don’t know if what I’m saying is BS or true, but this book showed me that the rainbows will eventually fade and sooner than you think reality will come, and that it’s up to me and the person I chose how we’ll get through the days when we want to kill each other or throw stuff to one another.
It still leaves me in awe me how Penny Reid writes this kind of stories. She’s not afraid to talk and write about things that aren’t commonly found in romance books and I think that’s what made me her fan. Her unusual choice of topics and the way she adds fluff and humor to her books will never cease to amaze me. I won’t just recommend this particular book, I recommend ever book she has written, even her short stories, you won’t be disappointed.
