Seventeen-year-old Snow-Soon Lee kicks ass--literally. She teaches at her family-owned martial arts gym, The Academy, and cares more about training to be the next Bruce Lee than hooking up. In fact, Snow's never even been kissed. But when Girls Night rolls around, Snow decides to prove to her friends (and herself) that she's not just some boring tomboy. Impulsively, she kisses a hot stranger and even manages to escape his two security guards.

One stolen kiss…

Ash Stryker's senior year sucks. His politician father pulled him out of Chariot High, separating him from his championship-winning soccer team. Now he's stuck at a prissy private school with no friends, no team and no chance of being scouted. On top of that, thanks to the death threats his dad's received, Ash has a security tail aka professional babysitters. When the mystery girl from the movies shows up at his school, rappelling from the rafters, Ash knows one thing: he won't let her get away again.

One interesting job proposition…

After a seemingly random attack, Ash's mother surprises everyone. She hires Snow to be Ash's personal bodyguard until after the election. But can Snow's kick-ass skills hold up against the rising threats to Ash's family? More importantly, can Ash convince his ninja girl to screw ethics and kiss him again?

Opposites attract in this YA romance where a smooth talker meets his match in the tough girl who (literally) sweeps him off his feet. Moral of the story:
Sometimes even bad boys need a bodyguard.

YA Review My Thoughts

Ninja Girl is a young adult contemporary romance by Cookie O’Gorman. Last year, I read Adorkable by Cookie and I absolutely loved it. It was so stinkin’ cute. Ninja Girl looked super cute, so I couldn’t pass this one up. I didn’t even realize that it was set in the same universe as Adorkable until I was about halfway through the book. It’s not a sequel or anything, so you don’t have to read adorkable first, but if you are looking for cute YA reads, you totally should. Both Adorkable and Ninja Girl were excellent!

Ninja Girl is the story of Ash, a politician’s son and Snow, an awesome martial artist. I loved the scene in the movie theater where Ash and Snow “met”. Holy Cow! That scene was making me nervous. Snow has more guts in her little finger than I do in my whole body I think! I know that is what caught Ash’s eye in the first place. Watching him pursue Snow was beyond cute. I loved watching the two of them dance around each other. Snow is a great character. She doesn’t really fit in with some of the girls her age, but she does a have a great set of friends. Bae and Min were excellent and I loved having them as supporting characters. I would kind of like to back up three months and read about their story! (Please!) Ash is a great guy too. He felt super genuine and was just the right amount of cocky. (I.E. not too much.) Overall, this was a really fun and cute read. Lots of kicking butt and lots of adorable romance. It was a total win for me. I think I liked it even more than Adorkable.

I loved that even though the storyline was a little unrealistic, it didn’t feel crazy out of place. I wouldn’t picture a high school aged girl to be selected to be a body guard to a high profile guy who is receiving death threats. But the funny thing, is it felt super realistic. Cookie O’Gorman truly did a fantastic job with the fighting scenes. I believed that Snow really was a kick butt ninja girl. I think that was my favorite part of the whole book. I loved how much I bought into and believed in the characters and the storyline. Cookie O’Gorman is a great writer. I can’t wait to read more books by her. Ninja Girl was a great read for me.
