I was skeptical when purchasing this book with my valued credit. I LOVED this book. I did not want to put it down. It is not an erotic, hot and steamy romance. The whole book is hard to explain other than to build you up to the HEA ... its a story of hero worship turns real life. Zapata has a talent for weaving a real life tale into something interesting and worth while. I will continue to follow her. I enjoyed LOCKE the first book I read by her, but this book surpasses that one by far. I cannot give enough accolades for this read. This was a gem of a find. The narration was perfect, the story entertaining and I would actually buy this book without hesitation. Credit worthy!

I LOVE this book! LOVE IT! My favorite thing about this story is the heroine, Sal. She is remarkable and probably my favorite heroine ever. Sal is an athlete, she's strong, she's funny, she's tough, she's smart. Sal is a team player, both on and off the field. She loves her family, she loves her friends and she knows her self worth. I absolutely adore her. I loved everything about her. This book also had the best relationship build up ever. I loved Kulti, I loved Sal's family. I loved the story. I loved the fact that Sal was a female athlete. The narrator does an exceptional job with this book - she even does Kulti's voice and accent very well! This book was complete and total perfection. This is my favorite audiobook I have listened to this year and this book is in my top 3 favorites of all time! Fantastic!!!!

"Destiny is a ladder"
I loved The wall of Winnipeg and me and Mariana Zapata did it again with Kulti which had a similar feel.
Sal plays soccer, she lives & breathes soccer, she's one of the best in her league. Her childhood idol was the German player Kulti, his image adorned her bedroom walls as a girl and the day he got married her hopes were shattered she was that obsessed with him.
The start of a new season and the girls discover their about to get a new coach and it's none other than the retired and now divorced I must add German soccer star Kulti.
Sals childhood fantasies soon dry up when she discovers that the German is nothing but rude, ignorant, grumpy and a man of few words unless he's chewing her a new one.
A very strange friendship develops between them following Sal giving the Brockwust as she calls him a piece of her mind.
Kulti is still rude he's still a man of few words but as their friendship develops Sal grows to understand and appreciate Kulti, her friend.
There are lots of laugh out loud moments, it's refreshing, lighthearted and heartwarming.
Kulti never comes across as romantic, sweet or swoon-worthy but boy does Mariana save the best til last. I loved this slow burn romance and by slow I mean right to the very last chapters but the journey there was so much fun.
Great characters, brilliantly written, told in Sals pov and leads to hea.
I listened on Audio, the narration brilliant I actually love this in audio more than reading like I did with previous books Wall of Winnipeg, Lingus & Under Locke, Mariana's narration choice with Callie Dalton is spot on, she's brilliant.
Looking forward to the next book.
"You're my equal, partner,team-mate & best friend"
I want to like these books by Zapata, I really do. But I don't like her way of writing. I read Under Locke and didn't really like it, but Kulti had so many good reviews I thought I'd give another Zapata book a try. This one didn't impress either.
What a brilliant story so well written, Marian you are a great writer. Callie your narrations of the story was brilliant as well. Kulti will send you on a journey filled with family commitment love an passion. Two souls with the same passion that love found over a journey of time.

Any additional comments?
The narration was superb! It's great that there is only one POV (I hate it when there is 2 or more). Recommend!
