The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

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?

Well, for starters I’ve already said in other reviews that I don’t read any blurbs of Mariana Zapata’s books; I just buy and read them as they are. So without knowing anything about it, the title did not give anything to me, just that maybe it was with sports in it. I like to though myself out there and be surprised with a good book, that I know it will be a good book, especially since everybody fusses about this one. Let me tell you I back them up! I really loved everything about “The Wall of Winnipeg and Me”.

I never stops to amaze me how much I love these incredibly long slow burns!! They are food to my soul.

Vanessa (Van) Mazur is the personal assistant to football player Aiden Graves aka “The Wall of Winnipeg”. She has been doing her job for over 2 years in order to raise money and start her business so that she can be her own boss and not stand more tantrums of anyone, especially Aiden. Finally she has enough and quits, but Aiden does not want her to do that, so I think he actually was that clever from the beginning and made her a proposition that she could never refuse. He got a way to keep her and her wife and marry her in an agreement for 5 years, so that he can get his American Visa.

“I was going to murder his ass. One day. One day long after I quit, so no one would suspect me.”

In this incredible universe of slow burns, I very much enjoy myself when falling in love with characters at the same rate they do, which connects me on a different level with the book.

Their romance has left me to swoon to death, because I truly feel that even if you are a busy man, in a busy world and only think about career, if you love somebody, you make time. You make as much as possible to be with that person even if you have to make big adjustments to your world to include them, and that is why Aiden, for me, us a dream man.

“I don’t know,” I stuttered, “Do you love me?”
His gaze was so intent the entire world seemed to stop. “You tell me. I never stop thinking about you. I worry about you all the time. Every beautiful thing I see reminds me of you. I can’t finish my practices in Colorado with out wishing you were around,” he said in a steady tone. “You tell me what I feel.”
