""No" I replied with a little smirk on my face. "Dinner Roll is leaving now. Please make sure to tell Aiden later on when no one else is around that I said he can eat sh*t."
Because of Van i'm now bringing back the middle finger salute.
And Aiden, oh my dear stoic Aiden and his scowling impersonal as*hole tendencies had me seriously questioning the big-boys humanity!
""Maybe I can find you someone a little easier on the eyes. What do you think?" Trevor's tone lightened at his joke.
I waited. Then I waited a little longer for Aiden to tell him to shut up and do his job.
But I waited in vain. He didn't say a word.
After everything I had done for Aiden...
I was absolutely riveted to reading Aiden's transformation.
So so so many tidbits I especially liked which had relevant moral depth "I wanted to be better. I wanted to be a good person. I wanted to be someone-not necessarily someone great or someone important-but someone I could live with."
Thoroughly loved and inhaled! You MUST ONE CLICK!
Having recently been introduced to Mariana Zapata and her work The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first book to read from her and boy am I glad I read it.
Mariana has a way with words. The book was fun and interesting and capitulating and just really a pleasure to read. 4.5 stars for this piece.
The Wall of Winnepeg is a slow burn kind of love (which is my favorite) from employee/employer relations, to hatred, to friendship and then to love, this book took you on a ride.
The characters are well developed and easy to relate to.
This story follows Van & Aiden's (big guy) journey to happiness.
Definitely a must read!
I am such a huge fan of Mariana's. Her story telling and writing style just suck you in from the get go, making you feel like you're apart of the story.
The wall of Winnipeg and Me was the first book I had read by Mariana's leaving me so absorbed in her storytelling that I am now a happy owner of all her books and a massive fangirl!
I love the story of Adian and Vanny and have re-read this book more time than I can count.
I really applaud how strong each character is portrayed in accepting their faults and weakness. And how resilient they are in the circumstance they've been dealt with.
The story portrays a what, I find a realistic (fears, thoughts and insecurities) approach to love in an a fictional situation.
I also appriciate how the characters evolved without deviating from their original foundation. Which I have notice alot of authors seem to struggle with.
Definitely recommend the read.
I love getting to know both characters. It was an interesting dynamic, especially with all the secondary characters. Zac had an interesting role to play. I wasn't sure about him, but it worked.
I did want more however. More of Aiden's background maybe? Or looking into Aiden's head, thought process..? I wasn't quite satisfied by the tidbits given from Leslie, his old coach. Even Aiden was reticent with telling Vanessa his past. And there wasn't much he told... I am hoping for a book from his point of view. I think that would be amazing to read. What was the point where he felt more for Vanessa than employer/employee?
I just enjoyed this read. I haven't been disappointed yet by this author. I highly recommend this book!

I absolutely adore The Wall of the Winnipeg and Me, Vanessa and Aiden are just couple goals.
Vanessa has been working as Aiden's PA for a few years, she does anything and everything for him including his laundry but after overhearing his agent calling her and misreading Aidens reaction, she decides its time to leave.
Flash forward a few months, Vanessa comes home to find Aiden on her doorstep, needing her help and willing to pay whatever the cost for it. So with university debts to pay and a new business plan, she reluctantly agrees to help him out (best decision ever👌).
OH MY GOD did I love Aiden Graves, he's a man of very few words, and when he does speak it tends to be straight to the point or grunts, fortunately for Vanessa she knows him well and this works out fine un the beginning because she doesn't want to be friends with him.
As the story unfolds, it is the sweetest thing to read and see how they slowly let the walls down and get to know one another. Aiden is so caring, he dosnt know how to do friends, he's spent most of his life alone and only concerned about his football career, but Vanessa is different, she has always been different to Aiden 🥰. So he starts to open up to the idea of wanting more in life than just a career and things start to shift for him the more time he spends with her.
Vanessa has dealt with some issues with her family in the past and other than her best friends tends to keep to herself, after the misunderstanding with Aiden at the beginning her trust needs to be earned. I enjoyed watching her thaw a little everytime Aiden did something sweet and unexpected. Vanessa seemed to be the only one who truly cares about Aiden outside of football and it very protective of him, it's so cute with him being a giant of a man ❤.
This is why Mariana you are the QUEEN of slow burn romances, you keep us hanging onto every page, every word, until the right moment comes alone and then BAM, I'm melting. There are some beautifully written scenes in this book that just make me smile and feel all gooey inside everytime I read them 🥺.
All I can say is pease please read this book, you will not regret it.
I just wanted to say I really enjoyed this author writing style, it took me a chapter ow two to get into but honestly once I was into it, they had me hook line and sinker and I couldn't put the book down.
SPOILER! DO NOT READ ON IF YOU DON'T WANT THE BOOK SPOILED FOR YOU!
They took way too long to get together, the book was over 90% finished when they got together which was disappointing because I enjoyed Aiden and Vanessa so much that I wanted to read more about them as a couple. I'd have been less disappointed if this wasn't a standalone and there was a book two that allowed me to read more about their dynamic as a couple.
Overall, a great book but should have been dual POV and I was disappointed it took them so long to get together. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, I am now a huge fan.
This isn't your typical hot/romantic love story that grips you from the outset, but instead it's like enjoying a fine bottle of wine that you need to sip at to really enjoy the full flavour! It's also the type of read that you really can't fast forward chunks at time to see what happens (which I tend to do sometimes) as you not only spoil your own reading enjoyment but it doesn't really give you anything because it's not that type of book - you simply have to read it at the pace it is set. It is though, the type of book that once you do get to the end, you will want to go back and read it again, because it will be so much better to read again a second time.
Overall I really enjoyed it and would recommend. It will definitely go into my 'read again' collection on my Kindle.
