Source: I received an eARC of this book for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review.
This was such a cute read! I loved it so much and I fell in love with the characters. Like Adorkable, this book definitely didn’t disappoint. You can read my review of Adorkable, here.
Snow-Soon worships only one person in this planet and that is Bruce Lee. Ash Stryker is new in town and his father is running for the state Senate but constant death-threats are keeping them on edge. Both families are surprised when Ash’s mother announces she wants Snow as Ash’s bodyguard. Both of them can’t deny the budding chemistry between them but when they are forced to face the actual danger, will she be able to protect Ash?
As I already stated, I loved this book so much! The plot was very enjoyable and there was not a single dull moment in this book. Snow isn’t like the other girls, to prove she can also be spontaneous she kisses a random guy in the movie theatre who turns out to be the new boy in town whose father is running for the state Senate. I loved Snow from the very beginning and I could also relate to her so much. And kudos to the diversity of this book where the female lead is Korean. She might have been a kickass girl but she was kind of shy in Ash’s presence and she had a close-knit group of friend who loved her so much, I liked their friendship aspect of this book.
Ash was certainly a swoon-worthy character. When he finally saw Snow again, he knew he couldn’t let her go. I loved his persistence and how he won her over, albeit some instances were a bit childish but he tried. I loved his sense of humour and sometimes he could he pretty funny. And I definitely loved the twist of having a female bodyguard for a guy! I was downright outraged when I understood who was behind the kidnapping and the death threats but I saw the twist coming but this one of the books where you feel satisfied when are find out you are right. I loved how everything fell into place and I was left satisfied with the ending.
Overall, Ninja Girl was a great read. The plot was executed neatly and I enjoyed the characters so much. I loved the romance between Ash and Snow. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book. I can’t wait to read more by this author!
