    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...

    I really enjoyed this slow burn romance. And it was a SLOW burn, but the payoff was perfect - I constantly had a cheesy grin on my face. The characters, the story, it was all simply wonderful. ...

    5 Big Guy Stars I don?t even know where to start with this review. The tale of Vanessa and Aiden snuck up on me and for that I?m forever grateful. ?You can?t live your life bottling everything up. You need people, even if it?s only one or two, to believe in you, and as...

    This one just really hit the spot for me. Great characters, slow burn romance, funny interactions, and when the heat finally hits, it's delicious. I read straight through the night and have thought about Aidan all day. ...

    YES! Loved this one! Two things got me to read this book: 1) I received a tweet from my best friend Sara telling me that said she had read this book and I needed to read it. The last time she said that to me was for a book I had passed over because the cover didn?t catch my ey...

    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 rea...

    5 'Team Graves' Stars! The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was a seriously addictive slow burn romance. Once I started the audio, I couldn?t stop listening. It was over 16 hours long, but I finished it within 48 hours. There was nothing about this book I didn?t love! Vanessa Ma...

    3.5 stars. I liked it but I didn't love it. Maybe my expectations were way too high as Kulti was one of my favourite reads from last year. I know her books are a slow burn but this one was a bit too slow. I sort of felt their relationship didn't develop that much throughout the...

    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 co...

    This may be the best book I have read, EVER! There are 100's of awesome reviews out there already, so I'll keep this simple and short. This is a beautifully written story. It takes its time, it gives us the time to watch Aiden & Vanessa build something simply amazing. Let me rep...

    It's 3:39am and I've just finished one of the best books I've EVER read. Seriously, I'm laying in bed bawling my fucking eyes out because I'm so fucking happy and so fucking sad at the same time cause it's all over. Since October I never thought I would feel this way about a book...

    If you're looking for a super sexy read? Well, can't say you'll find it here. Sweet? Well... eventually. Here you will find a very slow simmer. Very slow indeed. There's a lot of monologue and internalizing coming from the heroine. I won't lie and say I loved it all, but I will say tha...

    3.5 Stars Okay, I have some good news and some bad news. Let's start with the good news, shall we? The theme. This is my first book by this author and I hope it won't be my last. I'm a sucker for romances where the couple starts out as friends or enemies. Combine that with a ...

    4.5 The Wall of Asswipe Stars! What an amazing slow burn romance. If there's one thing that's truly apparent in this book, it's the spot-on perfect writing style of Mariana Zapata. I loved every single one of her lines, her characters' snappy dialogues, and the humor that she incorp...

    May 19, 2016 I loved the first 3 chapters and anticipated a swift escalation of Aiden and Vanessa's relationship but in the end, I gave up and chose to not finish the book. I will say that I did not like Vanessa AT ALL because she seemed angry perpetually, and her introspection...

    Five words can sum up this book for me? ?Ovaries. Where are my ovaries?? ? Vanessa Usually, when a book is recommended to me and a lot of people seem to love it, 95% of the time I?m like the black sheep of the group, the one who doesn?t understand the hype. So I...
