DISCLAIMER: The following review was originally posted on my book blog in January, 2016.

This short prequel novella for Fiona and Greg's book is killing me. It's killing me because it makes me want the real Greg and Fiona story even more than I wanted to read it before. Luckily Unluckily for me I have less than three weeks left till it is being published. These three weeks are going to be torturous!

Greg Archer is downright dreamy and I predict that he's going to the top of my favourite Penny Reid heroes in a flash when I get to read the next book. Hell, he's already sharing the top-spot with Quinn and Drew, but I have high hopes for him to beat those two and be the best hero ever. Especially if I'm to believe the ARC readers and the sneaky little peek we had into their story in this preview. Their story is going to be awesomesauce.

I love how Fiona and Greg banter. I love how cute they are together. I love how Greg finds these opportunities to compliment Fiona to the furthest star and back. Hell, I just love them together. They're spectacular and I cannot wait for more!

The only complaint I have about this short story is the fact that it's ... you know, short.

I have to admit that I am a huge fan of Penny Reid's novels and have read all of the 'Knitting in the City' and 'Winston Brothers' series, but I will admit that I was apprehensive about Fiona's story and have put off reading it... Perhaps it's because I didn't feel that I knew as much about her character as I had with some of the other 'Knitting in the City' characters, or it could be that her story seems to be more grown up - I have to admit that her story being billed as a story about marriage did seem less appealing to begin with (I don't know why!)

However, saying all of this I have to admit that as soon as I started reading this it felt that I was finally properly introduced to the character of Fiona. Whereas in other stories she'd been nothing more than a bystander vaguely mentioned with little development (unlike someone like Elizabeth or Sandra who are arguably stronger characters and so as an audience we become more familiar with them) in this novella we learn a lot about her and she becomes endearing and it is clear why the other women in the 'Knitting in the City' books often look to her.

I can gladly admit that it was silly to be put-off by this story and character and should've known that Penny Reid would create engaging and endearing characters with fantastic plots and ideas! I haven't read Happily Ever Ninja yet, but that'll be next on my list!

Well, that was as close to perfect as a romance gets for me.

Fabulous, palpable chemistry, wit, warmth, humour and a story that had me avidly clicking the pages, desperate to find out whether they end up together, even though this is set in the past and I know they're happily married in the present. That is how you do it.

I. Need. More. I've rather recklessly pre-ordered the rest of this one on kindle and paperback because I have to have them.

My favourite from overlord Penny to date. Loved it.

I have never read a book by Penny Reid that has not been good and sometimes very good. The only problem with this story is that it is to short.

I know that I fangirl over Penny's books. I know this. And yet, when she continues to produce books such as this, it's hard for me to rein it in.

This novella is a bigger introduction to Fiona and Greg's early relationship than we got in Scenes from the City. And even though we get more of a glimpse, it's still not enough!

This is delightfully awkward, subtle, delicate and powerfully entrancing. A treat. I'm eagerly looking forward to the full serving next year!

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is the prequel to Fiona & Greg's story which is the next book in the Knitting in the City Series due for release in January 2016. This prequel was also in the book 'Scenes from the City' which is where I read it.

Firstly, I will say that I'm still looking forward to Fiona and Greg's story and the teasers Penny Reid has been releasing on Facebook, are great but in this prequel, they don't actually interest me that much. It's insta love which I'm not a fan of and Penny Reid has decided to make Greg British. The trouble with that is that reading it as a British reader, his accent is mentioned a few times but to me he just sounded American. I learnt something new about Fiona but Greg is still a closed book. This prequel is about how they meet, while in College. It's sweet, but not sure it's needed to encourage readers of the full story.

I know their book will take place during their marriage, so I am interested in reading it but from the teaser first chapter of the main book that is a bonus to this book, I've a feeling there is going to be an emotional side to their story as we find out in this story a health problem Fiona had in childhood.

If you are a die hard fan, you will probably enjoy this but I have also read that the author said this prequel will probably be free soon, so I don't think it's worth paying for this one.
