'Ninja at First Sight' - Fiona and Greg

Are you a fan of this series like me? Then this novella is a must-read. I have fallen in love with each of these characters during this series, so the opportunity to read more about them was a no-brainer. Not only do we get more of Janie/Quinn, Elizabeth/Nico, Sandra/Alex, and Ashley/Drew. But we also get the awesome backstory of how Fiona and Greg met. And in true Penny Reid style, we get all the quirky and awkward and intelligence and humor we've come to expect, and then some.

'Neanderthal Seeks Honeymoon' - Janie and Quinn
This story was everything I love about Janie and Quinn - it's quirky and funny and sexy. It's honeymooning, Quinn and Janie style, complete with orgasm fatigue, luggage challenges, frogs and vaginas.

'Friends Definitely With Benefits' - Elizabeth and Nico

Instead of quirky and funny, we get our sweet and tender with Elizabeth and Nico. Ever wonder how Elizabeth felt after marrying Nico? Well here you go. I loved the way they worked through their communication and the tender way they love each other.

'Hacking the Hacker' - Sandra and Alex

I completely love Alex and Sandra. It's hard to choose favorites, but it may be them. I just love them so much. This little story, occurring a little over a year since they've been married, is proof of how perfect they are for each other

'Beauty and the Beard' - Ashley and Drew

Have you been missing Drew's letters, poetry and prose? Well buckle up for some epic swooning here, folks, cause Drew is playing for keeps. I'm not a flowers and poetry kind of gal, and even I love Drew.

'Ninja at First Sight' - Fiona and Greg

And then there were Fiona and Greg... Once again, I love how characters develop in Penny Reid's head. I love how their stories come to life. We've seen Fiona since the beginning of the series and got a glimpse of Greg in Beauty and the Mustache, but really, we've known very little about them... until now. What a fantastic introduction to their love story. Greg is certainly a character, but the truly fascinating thing about Greg's character is that Fiona gets him. And he gets her. It's one thing to portray a persona. It's another thing to be understood for who you are, and loved for it. Not everyone in Fiona and Greg's lives will or should get them, but that's why they have each other. I love Greg and Fiona! Once again another genius couple has been created, with all the intelligence and quirkiness and spark I love, plus the added bonus of Greg's humor. And I cannot wait to get the rest of their story in Happily Ever Ninja!!

This novella goes away after December 15th, so don't miss out!
