Summary

Vanessa Mazur knows she's doing the right thing. She shouldn't feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans, and none of them include washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary.

But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she's beyond shocked. For two years the man known as the Wall of Winnipeg couldn't find it in him to tell her good morning or congratulate her on her birthday. Now? He's asking for the unthinkable.

What do you say to the man who is used to getting everything he wants?

Boring??? Hell NO!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wall of Winnipeg and Me to be better than the print version?

After seeing a review saying 'Boring', I did consider not buying this book, I am so glad I didn't listen to THAT review! OK, different strokes for different folks, but, there's no way this book could be described as 'Boring'!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The characters are well developed, you fall in love with them and care about them. You are invested in their story, I found myself actually laughing out loud or shouting, Nooooo!!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this in one sitting.. Yep one! I had to finish! Great narration.

Any additional comments?

If you love romance, then yes! yes! Yes! but do not pick it up expecting a Guy de Maupassant Novel, then call it 'Boring'!

Amazing

I have LOVED that book. Well developed, level-headed characters, a slow, believable storyline, this book was every level of great. It made me smile, it made me squeal, and it made my heart clench. No great drama, no tragedy, just a steady unfolding of the best reality possible.

I highly recommend it, and will definitely add Mariana Zapata to my list of authors to listen to.

A firm favourite

I must have listened to this book several times now, it’s my “go to” when I just need a general pick me up. I literally crack up laughing in parts of this which is great!

Got to love Callie Daulton narrating it too, it just brings it all to life!

WOW

I loved this story so much I brought the book!
What a truly gentle story. If you want hot steamy sex, this is not the book for you. If you want a real story written by a talented interesting author ...game on.
Aidan and Van are very likeable characters which as a reader you have a real connection with. Their story is a true love story where respect gives way to like, like to friendship and friendship to love.
I won't give away the plot expect to say there are few dramatic moments and it was very realistic to life. Most of us do not have excitement, brushes with horror or drama and this is what I like about this story. We eat, work, exercise and sleep but the relationships we have with people while we do these things are the key to our lives.
I would put this in my top 100 books as I loved it so much. So nice to read a story that is well thought out, interesting and NICE.
P.S Learnt that what I have been blaming as flu when I have been riding 45+ miles is exhaustion. Thank you to the author for that nugget of wisdom.

AMAZING!!!!

I'm going straight to the point here ~ Why oh why haven't i read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me before!!!! It's a slow burn romance that feels so, so real and it was an amazing journey to love for Aiden and Vanessa. This book is just one of those reads that you can't help but fall in love with from great banter and a love that is built on friendship. This was my first read from Mariana Zapata but will not be my last.
