Review: The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
Publication Date: 29th Feb 2016
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 even 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?
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
This was a very odd book for a romance. It's a book where the romance blossoms so slowly that you're not really aware of falling in love but you do. The leading man - Aiden - doesn't really speak much... In fact, the leading man doesn't really do anything outwardly romantic. There's no flowery speeches, or notable romantic gestures yet the relationship that builds between Aiden and Vanessa is interesting and real. I really, really, enjoyed it as it truly shows life is in the little moments. I'd definitely read more from this author.
