The Wall of Winnipeg and Me Reviews
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.
LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! Can you believe it had running in it and I still loved it???? :P
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, ...more

"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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
