    5+ German Chocolate Cake stars! ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? OMG THIS BOOK! Kulti is one of those books that has been sitting on my TBR soon pile for months and months. I never found the time to read it, then I saw it was on audio so I ...

    I loved this one, just loved it. First off, I love football ... that is "soccer" to a lot of you. I love the World Cup, the Champions League, The UEFA Championships... I was the girl who stood in the pissing rain at Terryland Park to watch Galway United because my then boyfriend, now h...

    4 Slooooooow Strong Stars So not gonna lie, I went into this book completely blind. I didn't read any other reviews on this before starting (which is typical for me). Shit, I didn't even read the blurb (which is NOT typical for me). All I know is that I was "packing"...

    A well known fact about me: I can't play sports. I am the least athletic person you'll ever meet. I hated gym class with a passion. I also have an irrational fear of balls. Don't laugh, it's a real condition. It's called sfairesphobia. In elementary school, I'd been forced to play voll...

    Check out more of my reviews at www.bookaddicthaven.com I've had this book sitting on my TBR for a long time. I had put off reading it for a few reasons, but the most notable reasons being that: 1) I am not a sports fan - at all- and I was worried I wouldn't enjoy it since this stor...

    "Every single thing that has ever happened in my life has led me here, Sal. Destiny is a ladder, a series of steps that takes you where you're supposed to go. I am the man that I am, and I have done the things that I've done, to get me to you." The story is about twenty-seven-ye...

    4.5 Stars ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? Truth be told, I?m not a huge soccer fan but I played sports in my early years so reading about a professional female player is a total win for me. This sports theme book is centered around a...

    10+++++ STARS!!!!! I haven't read a book in awhile that has left me so affected, so happy, so...GAH! I LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT. I'm feeling particularly confused right now because I want to say so much but I don't know how! So to save time and space, I'll point out what I loved...

    4 STARS Boy this was.... Long. Really, really LONG. And slow. But I liked it. I liked it A LOT. Because, let me quote from the book: "What a fucking douche-bag!" I'm not going to lie. I was struggling in the beginning until I reached the 30% mark and then ...

    5" Million" Stars!!! I am fine. I am okay. No wait.... Jesus!! This is epic, you guys! Epic!!! I have been having shitty luck with books lately. Even if I like something I don't love it. I only see flaws. How the story is dragging...or how the ridiculous amount...

    What an adventure. Almost six hundred pages long. I feel like I know Sal inside and out. God, I haven?t read a book this voluminous in a long time, because I lack patience. But surprisingly, I didn?t mind taking my time with this one. Every chapter was a new surprise. I enjoyed...

    This book goes straight to the shelf with my favorite books because it combines three of the things that I value most in life: 1. FOOTBALL 2. TRUE LOVE and 3. FATE First of all, I love football. Or soccer, as it is called on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I think that it...

    5 **Fuball** STARS ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? What a fantastic read. A phenomenally written friends to lovers story surrounding a female soccer player and her new coach - a retired professional player, an icon and he is German. ...

    Oh. My. So many lessons learnt reading Kulti. Sociopaths have a soft spot for blinking. A lot. 34 times for Kulti to be exact, and 86 times total. Now that's a bit much, don't you think? For the first time ever, my eyes twitched at the recurrent use of the same words to n...

    O.M.G. this book, for real, I absolutely loved it! When I started this massive audio, well by massive I mean 16 plus hours I was worried I would get bored. I thought there is no way I am going to love this, but I had to give it a shot. I mean a professional soccer player and coach ...

    I don?t know how to review this book. Do I really need them? The rating details say it all. Melanie A., you called it. This is SORCERY!! This book?it was love at first page for me and the enchantment continued with every single page til the end. I am now hungover and have no...

    Increasing rating from 3 to 4 on rereading. Not writing a review but putting my favorite lines from this book here. Dear Mr. Kulti, You are my favorite player. I play soccer 2 butt I'm not good like you are. Not yet. I practice all the time so 1 day I can be just like you or be...

    HOW DID I JUST READ THIS NOW? How did I come this far in my life without Sal and Kulti? WTF guys?! Why weren't you throwing this book at me for the past two years??? ;) xo I think it's time to go on a Mariana binge. What should I try next? I've read Wall of Winnipeg and Rhythm,...

    The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first book by Mariana and after reading Kulti, I am now convinced the author is the queen of slow-burn romance but not entirely in a good way. As with TWOWAM, this book also has a brooding H who basically broods for no apparent reason. Nothing wron...

    I love slow burn novels. When a novel builds up to the eventual consummation, I feel it's so much sweeter. That's why I'm disappointed with how much I disliked this. While it picks up in the second half, it's hard to forget how the first half dragged and felt like a chore. In the end, ...

    ??????*Want more romance*?????? Re-read: 24.02.2018 I still like this one, though perhaps not as much as I did the first time reading it, but oh well. Also, I have forgotten how long this book was. So slow-burn and forever taking. Barely no romance at all,...

    I?m a little late showing up to the ?I Love Kulti? party but hey better late than never right! I remember when it came out (over a year ago) because so many of my GR friends were reading it and coming to the same conclusion! Absolutely loving it! Why on earth did I not read thi...

    Kulti is an iconically slow burn romance and officially the first Mariana Zapata book I've read. It was first recommended to me ages ago by one of my book gfs, Rhyzza (Thank you, Rhy! ??) and I'm glad I've finally read it. The book was slightly intimidating, it's chunky and the c...

    HOW DID I JUST READ THIS NOW? How did I come this far in my life without Sal and Kulti? WTF guys?! Why weren't you throwing this book at me for the past two years??? ;) xo I think it's time to go on a Mariana binge. What should I try next? I've read Wall of Winnipeg and Rhythm,...

    The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first book by Mariana and after reading Kulti, I am now convinced the author is the queen of slow-burn romance but not entirely in a good way. As with TWOWAM, this book also has a brooding H who basically broods for no apparent reason. Nothing wron...

    HOW DID I JUST READ THIS NOW? How did I come this far in my life without Sal and Kulti? WTF guys?! Why weren't you throwing this book at me for the past two years??? ;) xo I think it's time to go on a Mariana binge. What should I try next? I've read Wall of Winnipeg and Rhythm,...

    The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first book by Mariana and after reading Kulti, I am now convinced the author is the queen of slow-burn romance but not entirely in a good way. As with TWOWAM, this book also has a brooding H who basically broods for no apparent reason. Nothing wron...

    I love slow burn novels. When a novel builds up to the eventual consummation, I feel it's so much sweeter. That's why I'm disappointed with how much I disliked this. While it picks up in the second half, it's hard to forget how the first half dragged and felt like a chore. In the end, ...

    ??????*Want more romance*?????? Re-read: 24.02.2018 I still like this one, though perhaps not as much as I did the first time reading it, but oh well. Also, I have forgotten how long this book was. So slow-burn and forever taking. Barely no romance at all,...

    Oh. My. So many lessons learnt reading Kulti. Sociopaths have a soft spot for blinking. A lot. 34 times for Kulti to be exact, and 86 times total. Now that's a bit much, don't you think? For the first time ever, my eyes twitched at the recurrent use of the same words to n...

    O.M.G. this book, for real, I absolutely loved it! When I started this massive audio, well by massive I mean 16 plus hours I was worried I would get bored. I thought there is no way I am going to love this, but I had to give it a shot. I mean a professional soccer player and coach ...

    Increasing rating from 3 to 4 on rereading. Not writing a review but putting my favorite lines from this book here. Dear Mr. Kulti, You are my favorite player. I play soccer 2 butt I'm not good like you are. Not yet. I practice all the time so 1 day I can be just like you or be...

    HOW DID I JUST READ THIS NOW? How did I come this far in my life without Sal and Kulti? WTF guys?! Why weren't you throwing this book at me for the past two years??? ;) xo I think it's time to go on a Mariana binge. What should I try next? I've read Wall of Winnipeg and Rhythm,...

    Full review now posted... ?Every single thing that has ever happened in my life has led me here, Sal. Destiny is a ladder, a series of steps that takes you where you?re supposed to go. I am the man that I am, and I have done the things that I?ve done, to get me to you.? ...

    The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first book by Mariana and after reading Kulti, I am now convinced the author is the queen of slow-burn romance but not entirely in a good way. As with TWOWAM, this book also has a brooding H who basically broods for no apparent reason. Nothing wron...

    I love slow burn novels. When a novel builds up to the eventual consummation, I feel it's so much sweeter. That's why I'm disappointed with how much I disliked this. While it picks up in the second half, it's hard to forget how the first half dragged and felt like a chore. In the end, ...

    5 fucked-me-right-up stars ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? this book was fcking EVERYTHING to me. in typical zapata fashion, this was a sloooooow burn romance between professional soccer player Sal & her coach Reiner Kulti. Rey is a renown...

    ??????*Want more romance*?????? Re-read: 24.02.2018 I still like this one, though perhaps not as much as I did the first time reading it, but oh well. Also, I have forgotten how long this book was. So slow-burn and forever taking. Barely no romance at all,...

    I?m a little late showing up to the ?I Love Kulti? party but hey better late than never right! I remember when it came out (over a year ago) because so many of my GR friends were reading it and coming to the same conclusion! Absolutely loving it! Why on earth did I not read thi...

    03/07/2016 -- Re-read this recently and enjoyed it as much as the original read last year. 03/26/2015 -- Original read Very engaging. You know what I like and rarely get? Those romances that are slow burning. They have two people. Just people, but circumstances bring them togethe...

    Kulti is an iconically slow burn romance and officially the first Mariana Zapata book I've read. It was first recommended to me ages ago by one of my book gfs, Rhyzza (Thank you, Rhy! ??) and I'm glad I've finally read it. The book was slightly intimidating, it's chunky and the c...

    New favorite author. Hands down. I'm sure I can't say anything original here, because everyone loves this book, but I have to TRY. Because this book made me feel so many things. It was stellar. One. Zapata's ability to really, honestly make me believe the heroine has no idea the he...

    4.5 Stars ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? Truth be told, I?m not a huge soccer fan but I played sports in my early years so reading about a professional female player is a total win for me. This sports theme book is centered around a...

    10+++++ STARS!!!!! I haven't read a book in awhile that has left me so affected, so happy, so...GAH! I LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT. I'm feeling particularly confused right now because I want to say so much but I don't know how! So to save time and space, I'll point out what I loved...

    4 STARS Boy this was.... Long. Really, really LONG. And slow. But I liked it. I liked it A LOT. Because, let me quote from the book: "What a fucking douche-bag!" I'm not going to lie. I was struggling in the beginning until I reached the 30% mark and then ...

    5" Million" Stars!!! I am fine. I am okay. No wait.... Jesus!! This is epic, you guys! Epic!!! I have been having shitty luck with books lately. Even if I like something I don't love it. I only see flaws. How the story is dragging...or how the ridiculous amount...

    What an adventure. Almost six hundred pages long. I feel like I know Sal inside and out. God, I haven?t read a book this voluminous in a long time, because I lack patience. But surprisingly, I didn?t mind taking my time with this one. Every chapter was a new surprise. I enjoyed...

    This book goes straight to the shelf with my favorite books because it combines three of the things that I value most in life: 1. FOOTBALL 2. TRUE LOVE and 3. FATE First of all, I love football. Or soccer, as it is called on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I think that it...

    5 **Fuball** STARS ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? What a fantastic read. A phenomenally written friends to lovers story surrounding a female soccer player and her new coach - a retired professional player, an icon and he is German. ...

    Oh. My. So many lessons learnt reading Kulti. Sociopaths have a soft spot for blinking. A lot. 34 times for Kulti to be exact, and 86 times total. Now that's a bit much, don't you think? For the first time ever, my eyes twitched at the recurrent use of the same words to n...

    5 Schnecke Stars * * * * * and any other you may want to personally add! Spoiler Free I have started this review a few times since reading; had a review halfway done and then in editing lost it- What else is new- you have all heard it before... The next time I sat and just thought ab...

    O.M.G. this book, for real, I absolutely loved it! When I started this massive audio, well by massive I mean 16 plus hours I was worried I would get bored. I thought there is no way I am going to love this, but I had to give it a shot. I mean a professional soccer player and coach ...

    3.5 Pumpernickel stars! "You are my best friend, my love, my playmate and my teammate. You'll have a team with me wherever we are, with whatever we're playing." At the age of 7 Sal developed a crush on a 19 year old German soccer player that would forever affect her li...

    5+ German Chocolate Cake stars! ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? OMG THIS BOOK! Kulti is one of those books that has been sitting on my TBR soon pile for months and months. I never found the time to read it, then I saw it was on audio so I ...

    I loved this one, just loved it. First off, I love football ... that is "soccer" to a lot of you. I love the World Cup, the Champions League, The UEFA Championships... I was the girl who stood in the pissing rain at Terryland Park to watch Galway United because my then boyfriend, now h...

    4 Slooooooow Strong Stars So not gonna lie, I went into this book completely blind. I didn't read any other reviews on this before starting (which is typical for me). Shit, I didn't even read the blurb (which is NOT typical for me). All I know is that I was "packing"...

    A well known fact about me: I can't play sports. I am the least athletic person you'll ever meet. I hated gym class with a passion. I also have an irrational fear of balls. Don't laugh, it's a real condition. It's called sfairesphobia. In elementary school, I'd been forced to play voll...

    Increasing rating from 3 to 4 on rereading. Not writing a review but putting my favorite lines from this book here. Dear Mr. Kulti, You are my favorite player. I play soccer 2 butt I'm not good like you are. Not yet. I practice all the time so 1 day I can be just like you or be...

    HOW DID I JUST READ THIS NOW? How did I come this far in my life without Sal and Kulti? WTF guys?! Why weren't you throwing this book at me for the past two years??? ;) xo I think it's time to go on a Mariana binge. What should I try next? I've read Wall of Winnipeg and Rhythm,...

    Full review now posted... ?Every single thing that has ever happened in my life has led me here, Sal. Destiny is a ladder, a series of steps that takes you where you?re supposed to go. I am the man that I am, and I have done the things that I?ve done, to get me to you.? ...

    The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was my first book by Mariana and after reading Kulti, I am now convinced the author is the queen of slow-burn romance but not entirely in a good way. As with TWOWAM, this book also has a brooding H who basically broods for no apparent reason. Nothing wron...

    First Read 6/15-18/15 Re read 12/15 Re read 12/-01-05/17 ...

    I love slow burn novels. When a novel builds up to the eventual consummation, I feel it's so much sweeter. That's why I'm disappointed with how much I disliked this. While it picks up in the second half, it's hard to forget how the first half dragged and felt like a chore. In the end, ...

    5 fucked-me-right-up stars ?He was my coach. And I was his friend. Or something like that.? this book was fcking EVERYTHING to me. in typical zapata fashion, this was a sloooooow burn romance between professional soccer player Sal & her coach Reiner Kulti. Rey is a renown...
