    FEEL THE BURN

    Slow burn. So good. Didn't want it to end. What a romance! I feel like I could watch more football now, I've researched it so much from this book.

    I couldn’t help myself…

    I buy audio books for my in-between reads. I like to listen to audiobooks when I’m catching the train to work, baking or exercising (which I should do more of). Well, there was a slight problem with The Wall of Winnipeg and Me, it was too good. I couldn’t bring myself to stop listening. What normally would have lasted me a couple of weeks lasted me a couple of days. I was sucked into the story from the very first minute. The narrator had a voice that was easy to listen to,

    There's just something about the strong, silent type that draws me in and melts my heart. Aiden is that kind of guy. This physically intimidating 'wall' of a man has a stubbornness about him that made me want to kick him in the nads - hard - and a vulnerability about him that, at times, made me want to weep and to bring him home and love him until neither of us remembered that a world outside of ourselves existed.

    So, so good!

    I might write a more in depth review later, or I might not, but I will

    I like you as much as I like anyone.



    I can't even.

  • Em Lost In Books

    Scratch four, this deserve five stars. Third reading and nothing has changed. Magic is intact and if possible I am in love with this story more than ever.

    "Yeah, my throat and tongue thought they were the Sahara. My eyes on the other hand wanted to be the Amazon. I didn't even realized I needed to sniffle until I did it. As much as I'd been telling myself over the last two days that I'd imagined being a wee bit in love with him, my heart held on to the truth. I hated it, but I was. I recognized

    Review at Of Pens and Pages



    Bam! I'm pregnant.

    Slow romance + Sports + Marriage of Convenience + Me = Dead.

    I am warning you now. This review is going to be long!

    This book. This book. I have read Winnie (as Mariana Zapata likes to call The Wall of Winnipeg and Me) more times than I'm proud to admit. That is how much I love this book.

    Vanessa Mazur has been the assistant of The Three Hundreds' defensive end, Aiden "The Wall of Winnipeg" Graves, for the last two years, and is now ready to open a new

    ”I wished you had respected me enough to appreciate me back when it would have meant something. I liked you. I admired you, and in the course of a few days, you killed that.”


    As the story progressed, you can see Aiden making an effort to be Vanessa's friend. And once you've read the story, you'll know Aiden would never do something he wouldn't care to do. And he wouldn't say something unless he meant it. The words and actions that come from him are 100% genuine, and I just need a moment because I am screaming just thinking about the feels!

    ”In my life, I've only cared what four people thought about me.”


    There were a lot of milestones that showed how close they were getting--Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas. FREAKING CHRISTMAS! I think I died a little during that cute Christmas scene.

    It was so heartwarming to see them open up to each other. Not only did it help ease their relationship with each other, it showed the readers that Aiden is as human and flawed as Vanessa. To see two people who have been on their own most of their lives find someone to finally depend on and lean on, it was touching.

    Apart from these two amazing babies, I loved the side characters. Zac, Aiden' roommate and the Three Hundred's quarterback, was also Vanessa's good friend. Most authors would jump at the opportunity to use Zac as another love interest, but I loved that Mariana didn't go there. Their friendship is adorable; Zac was there for Vanessa when she was still working for Aiden, and he was still there for her when she was Aiden's wife. Who says boys and girls can't be friends?

    Diana was a true friend through and through. She was more Vanessa's sister than her biological ones, and their banter and conversations were entertaining.

    I also found a lot of inspiring phrases about life throughout the book.

    ”What no one tells you is that the road to accomplishing your goals isn't a straight line; it looks more like a corn maze. You stopped, you went, you backed up, and took a few wrong turns along the way, but the important thing you had to remember was there was an exit. Somewhere.”


    This book has filled me with laughter, heartbreak, joy, and love, and I am so glad I read this. Since reading Winnie, I've read Mariana's other books, all I've also enjoyed. The best part is all of her stories are slow-burning romances. I love it!!!

    Now, excuse me while I go and read this gem again.

    4 The Best Becoming the Best Stars

    * * * * Spoiler Free

    For those who may not be familiar with the writings of Marina Zapata...reading the blurb could lead you to believe this was another romance book of "football player needing a pretend wife" and after 200 pages.... they admit they are in love ... the end. This book in nothing like that and this is due to the style of Zapata's writing. She never does anything easy... or glossed over.


    This is the premise, a sort of fence to wrap around all of the
