Lingus - Mariana Zapata Synopsis

Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humour. There was something about her that most people didn't know. "My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn."

When twenty-five-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she's both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship, and a love born out of the most unexpected of places.

Aww, what a great re-read.
It had been a couple of years since I picked this book up, so it was like reading this story for the first time.
Tristan and Katherine are still a couple of my favourite fictional characters.

Mariana has a wonderful talent for creating unique characters who normally wouldn't meet in any other circumstance other than the one that she's set up in her book.
I loved where and how these two characters met, and how they automatically "clicked".
Some people you meet and you just know there's something special there, and that was the case for Tristan and Kat.
I had a wonderful time reading how Tristan and Kat went from being friends- to best friends- to be each other's "most favourite person in the world".

The scenes, secondary characters, and dialogue were well written, engaging, and well developed.

If you're looking for a good story that is a little different with amazing characters and fantastic bantering, then I highly recommend this book for you.

After rereading this story, I've re-rated it to a 5 star rating.
I enjoyed this story, even more, the second time.
I had forgotten how quirky Katherine (Kat) and Tristen were together, and how much I enjoyed their bantering and humour.
Loved it!

4.5 Stars!

This story was funny, sassy, and bold.

I really like the writing, story, and the colourful, unique characters.

Tristan and Katherine were funny as hell together!
From the first time they lay eyes on one another, there is automatic chemistry and a connection.

Their journey from acquaintance to friendship, and from friendship to lovers was amazing to read.


So many times I laughed out loud at their teasing, bantering and the situations they were in.

When they finally accepted (gave into) their attraction to one another, story went from being fun to sizzlin'!


This story is a little different from what you'd normally read in contemporary romance with funny, bold unique characters, and I highly recommend this book.

Mariana Zapata has become one of my favourite author's!
