Description

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 14 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?

I was ANGRY!

This book left me with a Hulk-like green tinge when I arrived at work each day. It would take me at least five minutes each morning to recover from listening to Happily Ever Ninja.
Deep breaths, constant reminders that it's "just a book" and steering clear of people helped me calm down. I have never read or listened to a book that constantly had me angry.

I was angry that women have to go through childbirth. I was angry that men sometimes don't see what is right in front of their noses. I was angry that people think they know what's best and they're not always right. I was angry that sometimes wives have to fib a little to husbands to keep the peace. I was angry that pregnancy feels like you're dying. I was angry that the hero made me laugh when I wanted to join the heroine and put him in a chokehold. I was angry that the heroine didn't scream, shout, rant and rave when she should have. I was angry that love makes you forgive too easily.

I was angry because I recognised it all.

I was angry because I could relate to it all.

I was angry because we do it for love, peace and happiness.

In the end, the things that made me angry in the story made me love it more. I'm not alone. Penny Reid again proved to me that she's a master of real women romance. I bow down in gratitude and thanks, Ms Reid, I don't feel angry and alone anymore.

Every reason to never marry

Arrogant, controlling, self satisfied husband and amazing, competent, doing-everything and never getting any respect for it wife. Who apologizes constantly and buries all her feelings.
I wanted him to die. I hate this man.

wittily written and narrated

Love this story! Kick-ass agent Fiona gives up tan action-packed life to stay at home and raise a family. About ten years later, she organizes a rescue for her husband, who has been taken hostage while on a humanitarian mission. She's still got the moves! I love the banter between the couple, but I think that Greg could still have eaten a bit more humble pie and given recognition where it was due in the end, as well as taken more responsibility for making the situation worse every time he refused to go along with a solution Fiona had planned. Even so, what fun!

Ridiculous

It was painful listening to this book. Greg is a horrible narcissistic jerk and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to be with someone like him, let alone write an entire book at him. If the world doesn’t revolve around him then it doesn’t matter. He is an immature man child who believes he is always right, leaves his family to live his dream and then expects them so live by his every dictate with no forethought to what anyone else, particularly his wife wants or thinks because we’ll he’s always right isn’t he? He can’t even manage to get his laundry into the hamper, wipe a counter or not leave the apartment looking like a tornado went through it and cannot imagine what the problem is. Then he pops home on a moments notice and expects his wife to be the perfect combo of mother, housekeeper and hooker. Then to abandon his wife overseas rather then use her skills was beyond contemptible. Why would anyone in their right mind want to be around a person like him, let alone be married to him. And yet even in the end even his apologies are couched in “Its all about me”. So though I previously adored this authors work, this book nauseated me and I am done with this series.

my all time favorite Penny Reid book!

I loved everything about this book. I loved that it was about a long-term relationship after the "and they lived happily ever after...". I loved the humor, suspense, and especially the quotes from her readers starting off each chapter. I'm sure I will be quoting one of my favorite "Greg-isms",' better they learn about it at home than on the streets' when referring to things like welding.

Surprisingly disappointing.

I really looked forward to this next installment of KIC. I had already enjoyed Ninga at First Sight. In fact, I thought I was ready for an interesting experience. Different from the previous works but interesting. I was waiting for, anticipating, even lusting after the droll wit of amazing characters and the situations they faced and over came. I wanted to see how they interacted and grew, how they supported and nurtured one another.

Unfortunately this installment did not fulfill my hopes. The characters all seemed thin, maybe two-dimensional. Characters were were introduced for a second then...Poof!! There was no chemistry displayed within relationships.

This book was hard to finish. I kept falling asleep. In fact the entire thing was somewhat depressive. I see now why it has so few reviews. In the future I will consider atypical reviews when I decide to purchase. I do not know if the narrators let the story down or if the story let the narrators down, but either way it was sad.

The best part of this book was the email vignettes between other couples. The worst part was the distance between Fiona and everybody else. There are more problems than her "ninganess". I am sure there were good things about this book. Unfortunately there were more bad things.

This was a special e-book + Audible reduced price purchase. I am not sure it was worth the cost. While I am not sorry I read this book, it was an unfortunate experience.

New to audible

I have several of Ms. Reid's books on my kindle. This is the first one I've gotten in audible. The story was very good and the narration was great.
I highly recommend to contemporary romance lovers that enjoy some comedy in the storyline

Quite a twist.

Luckily I knew about the plot twist from a friend. And luckily I love Penny Reid. Really liked Greg and Fiona. They were so intelligent and loving. The adventure was a bit much though.

I love the knitting in the city series!

Would you consider the audio edition of Happily Ever Ninja to be better than the print version?

Didn't read print but loved the audio.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love them all. I would suggest listening to the happily ever ninja prequel before this book. It is not madatory but it will help you see why the characters love each other so much. In this story they are married and fighting a lot. The prequel tells the story of how they fell in love and why they are together.

Which scene was your favorite?

The actions scenes in Nigeria were great. I also like it when the knitting group is together.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are some funny one liners. Penny Reid's books always make me smile. This series is witty and smartly written.

Any additional comments?

Not my favorite in the series but I was totally entertained. Definitely credit worthy!
