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?

My ThoughtsHappily Ever Ninja is the fifth book in the Knitting in the City series by Penny Reid, but it can be read as a standalone. I myself have not read any of the other books in the Knitting in the City series, but my love for Penny Reid runs so deep that I couldn’t pass up any of her books. I also wanted to read Happily Ever Ninja for another reason- it is a book about a married couple. I hardly ever read a book where the couple starts out married. And I knew that if I was going to start with one, it was going to be by Penny Reid. She just has a way with romance and with humor. I have loved every single one of the books I have read by her, and this one is no different.

While I just told you that this book works as a standalone from the other books in the Knitting in the City series, I would recommend that you read the free prequel to the story, Ninja At First Sight (click here to get it for FREE) but in the ebook that I read, Penny had very nicely put the prequel story right before the start of Happily ever Ninja, which I think is a really great idea for ebooks. I loved having both the prequel/origin story in the same place as the full length book.

Greg and Fiona were college sweethearts (read Ninja at First sight to see how they met in college) and Happily Ever Ninja takes place after they have been married for several years. But if you are thinking this is about to be your average contemporary romance, you would be completely and totally 100% wrong. Let me set the stage. Greg is overseas for work when he gets taken and Fiona has to come rescue him. She is a total bada**. Seriously. I didn’t read the previous books, but if you did you would know more about Fiona and her past in the CIA, but her she completly kicks some major butt to get Greg. I loved her so much.

And the only thing I loved more than Fiona herself was her and Greg’s bantering back and forth. It worked perfectly in with Penny’s witty writing style that I love so much. Happily ever Ninja was an awesome read. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn’t this. I don’t know how she does it, but Penny Reid continually surprises me. In the best ways.

Bottom line: Read this book. That is all.

P.S. This book also has another super cute touch. Before each chapter Penny Reid posted excerpts of letters from real life married couples (and some to their future spouses.) They were all different, but all a real treat to read. It was a very cool idea.

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.

    This one sounds like it could be a pretty interesting chick lit read! I don’t think I have heard of anything quite like it before – when the wife turns out to be someone pretty different than he thought. I wonder how you deal with such a change? I best read it to find out 😀
