New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mariana Zapata's most beloved book, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me??now with new exclusive content!

Vanessa Mazur refuses to feel bad for quitting??she knows she's doing the right thing. The thankless job of personal assistant to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans for her life, and none of them include washing extra-large underwear one more day for a man who could never find it in him to tell her good morning, congratulate her on a job well done, or wish her a happy birthday??even when she was spending it working for him.

The legendary "Wall of Winnipeg" may be adored by thousands, but after two years Van has had enough.

But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door begging her to come back, she's beyond shocked. Mr. Walled-Off Emotions is actually letting his guard down for once. And she's even more dumbstruck when he explains that her job description is about to become even more outrageous: something that takes the "personal" in personal assistant to a whole new level.

What do you say to the man who is used to getting everything he wa… (mais)

Nah sorry Aiden’s into Vanessa because she’s basically his mom, and he’s too emotionally lazy to pursue so much as a passing acquaintanceship with anyone else, despite working on a literal team in which friendship is practically inherent and still has no friends despite living with a teammate who shares his career, interests, and schedule. I think he’s a boring man-child!

Thought there’d be more to nearly 700 pages lol but no! ( )

Vanessa is the PA and all-round dogsbody for Aiden Graves, a star football player based in Dallas. He's from Canada (hence the title) and embodies the grumpy hero. She's only working for him until she saves enough money to start her own business, but when she finally quits, she's surprised he doesn't want to let her go. In fact, he needs a green card marriage and thinks Vanessa would be perfect for the part.
The story is told from Vanessa's POV and I wish that we got to see Aiden's POV once in a while as it was hard to determine his motivations. I couldn't tell but my head canon is that he was in love with her the whole time though you never knew it until the end of the book. It's a long book, but Vanessa keeps things interesting and Aiden keeps it intriguing. Definitely a fun book. ( )

Absolutely relentlessly heart-thumpingly satisfying.

Our MCs are a stone cold star defensive player (cannot recall what position) in the NFL raised by his grandparents and largely abandoned by his mother and his personal assistant, a semi geeky people pleaser who was raised in a terrible family and for a time in a loving foster home. Both have issues trusting, but they get a rhythm going that works for him. When she quits (she has been squirreling away all of her money to start her own graphic design business) he freaks even though he has barely shared a civil word with her in the past. He ends up giving her an offer she can't refuse (no details) to stay with him for the next five years and they circle round each other before they recognize the ways in which they fit together, and then for a longer time as they both deal with pushing down the boundaries they have drawn around themselves.

There is nothing about this book that would identity it as a book I would love. I don't hate it, but grumpy-sunshine is not my favorite trope. (The addition here of forced proximity really helps.) It is heartwarming (there is even a puppy), largely sex free, the male lead is not a chatter so there is little in the way of fun banter, and it is New Adult. But doggone it is a book I did love. I feel glowy. Just a perfect fairy tale of a romance. ( )

This one is hard to rate....most of the book was a 3 but the last 30% made me bump it up. If the first 70% hadn't been so slow going with TOO many of Van's thoughts it would have been a 5 star favorite. I really did enjoy getting to know Van, Aiden, and Zac! The writing was done well....I'm just not a lover of reading a characters every thought. It is definitely not an instant love type of book. The main characters aren't intimate until close to the end. I really, really wished the timeline had been just a bit different. I wanted the last 30% to last longer. I didn't mind the slowness in the beginning either as I was getting to know the characters but it just dragged on forever. Aiden is a big, quiet, shy type of guy but still alpha. He was a great character and I liked Van's quirkiness! ( )
