So, on Feb 2, 2018, I HAVE SAID:
on Feb 3, 2018, I'm kinda speechless...
This was the fastest long slow burn romance book I have read by Mariana Zapata, and I have read them all...so, i would know *wink*
This was as equally or even more beautiful as the rest of her stories, but more closely this story is closer to the cult status KULTI & The Wall of Winnipeg and me have in my heart.
And most of all, after reading it, I feel this tremendous joy and fulfillment.
Yeah, you might even say It made me ...more
God, yes. My soul needed this book.
I loved this even more the second time around. I've never had a book hangover from a reread, but there's a first time for everything.
Ivan and Jasmine are just perfect. I love their friendship, their chemistry, and their journey together. I'm so happy this book is in my life <3

Have you ever seen the amazing 1992 movie that was The Cutting Edge?
Well, I loved this movie growing up.
So much in fact that I had it on VHS - for you youngun's, that was like a big tape cassette that played movies.
Oh wait, young people might not know what a tape cassette is either.
Here's a visual:
Those were the days, folks. Such amazing clarity...
Such clear and concise user instructions...
But anyrewind, as I was saying...
I had it on VHS.
And when those went out, I got i ...more
Review at Of Pens and Pages.
I LOVE LOVE LOVED IT. Make way, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and Kulti, From Lukov with Love is joining you in my 're-read all over and over and over again' pile. This book had Mariana Zapata's signature slow burn that I can't get enough, characters I can't help but absolutely love, and fantastic banter that made me laugh out loud, all the while set in a sport world I don't usually encounter in romance novels (If you know more figure skating/pair skating romanc ...more
"If I had to choose anyone to help me bury a body, eat dinner with, or watch television with, it would be you, every time for everything."
MY HEART IS SO FULL.
I have laughed, cried, fumed, cringed, swooned, and had every other reaction in between while I was reading this book. Mariana Zapata has been so good to me - gracing me with such wonderful writing - that I actually feel guilty that my first impression of this story and these characters was:
Because, confession time.
It was a little hard ...more
⭐⭐⭐ 2.5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐
From Lukov With Love was... like :
The Wall of Winnipeg and Me—on ice,
Wait For Me—on ice,
Kulti—on ice. And Kulti was my least favorite book by Zapata.
From Lukov With Love wasn’t necessarily bad, just a copy carbon of situations and scenes from the author's previous books, only transposed to the figure skating world.
There were really golden moments in From Lukov with Love , the banter and bickering between both main characters was truly entertaining, Zapata did a great job at ...more
I love slow burn romances and I was looking forward to reading this novel. Then surprise happened. Not only whole story was too slow, but there was no burn and definitely no romance for almost whole book. To say the truth, real romance didn’t start until last 15% of the book. I expected enemies-to-lovers trope and hot chemistry but all I got was not so special, slow-paced self-discovery story with juvenile banters and distant romantic undertone. Disappointment!
And what was with all that blinking ...more
