The Wall of Winnipeg and Me
Books | FICTION / Romance / General
"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?"--Page  of cover.

"It was a good book, and I really enjoyed it, but Aiden is officially the worst book boyfriend of any non-dark romance. The author can't make me believe in the change in his behavior unless she writes 100 pages about that guy getting therapy. At one point I just accepted Aiden in 1st and 2nd halves of the book were 2 completely different human beings. What I loved the most was Vanessa and her character. That girl deserves the world. I can't express how much I wanted to hug her and give her all the love she deserves. "
"Wow. I am totally in love with this book. The slow burn is perfect for me and I was constantly smiling or swooning while reading. Everything just seemed to develop so well: the stubbornness, determination, humor, love, friendships, etc. Aiden is strong physically and also mentally, but don’t count out Vanessa because she is just as inspirational. Their stories and their love for each other blossomed into such a beautiful thing and the epilogue almost brought me to tears of joy. Not to mention I love a good sports romance and marriage of convenience, so I was thrilled. It is just one of those books where you are smiling from the first few pages because you know it is going to be a favorite. "
"Good book, but took to long to get to the good part. I do wis me there was a second book though! "
"I listened to the audiobook for this and I did have to have it read at 1.2x speed because the narration moved really slowly. Overall, this was a really good book; however, it was a very, very, very slow burn. Personally, I think Vanessa had way too much inner monologue. So much of it was repeated and it was unnecessary to have things mentioned so many times. Aidan and Vanessa had really good chemistry built up and it felt like it took forever for it to finally explode. The backstories and depth of the characters were really well-developed and I wish we could've had the HEA dragged out longer and the beginning shortened."
