What do a cynical former Marine and a sheltered former Olympic contender have in common?
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.
This might be my favorite novella EVER. I can’t even explain how much I adored Fiona and Greg (GREG!!!) in Ninja at First Sight. This is a prequel to their full-length novel, Happily Ever Ninja, and I have to say, it was absolutely PERFECT. It’s a short and sweet introduction to these two characters, set back in their college days. We get their first meeting, their first conversation, their first kiss, their first date… GOD, my heart almost couldn’t handle all the sweetness in this novella. If you’re planning on reading Happily Ever Ninja, you absolutely MUST read Ninja at First Sight beforehand! And the best part about it is that it’s FREE!
My brain liked this guy, my body liked this guy, and my heart was beyond infatuated with him.
Fiona has just started her first year of college, but she’s a bit of a hermit. So one day, she finally decides to break out of her shell with the help of a suite-mate, though she has no idea she’s about to meet her future husband. But Greg – who is gorgeous, sarcastic, witty, and older – has a girlfriend. Soon enough, as Fiona and Greg keep exchanging quips and banter and even thoughtful conversations, they become something like friends. But the underlying chemistry between them is still very much present, so what will happen when Fiona starts falling for someone who’s taken?
“I want to be your first everything.”
GREG!!!! Oh my god, I loved Greg. Seriously, I’m so in love. He stole my heart with his sassiness and hilarious comments and one-liners. He’s not exactly the most likable guy, but there’s something so charming about him that you can’t help but be taken with him. What I loved most in this novella was how clearly we see Greg falling in love with Fiona, and how much he grows to appreciate everything about her. The beginnings of their life-long romance could not have been sweeter, and I really wished there could have been more in this novella!
Fiona and Greg are perfect. This novella is perfect. If you’re in the mood for something short, sweet and incredibly well-written, this is it. But fair warning, this ends in a cliffhanger, and it’ll make you want to start Happily Ever Ninja ASAP. Luckily, that book is already out, so you really have no excuse to read Ninja at First Sight if you haven’t already!
