From Lukov with Love Reviews
The most I’d ever seen out of him was a smile or two around his family, specifically Karina.
But that was it.
I hadn’t even known he knew how to laugh….
Unless he was doing something shitty, like taking people’s souls and stuff.
There are very few things in life I love as much as I love the books my favorite authors write. Even fewer still are the moments where I can’t even finish a page because I can’t seem to find the breath to support the amount of air in my lungs it takes to supply hosting ...more
A conversation between ignorant Bibi and slightly less ignorant Bibi, let's call them B1 and B2
B1: Five stars? Really? After all the bitching and moaning
B2: *smiles at her e-reader*
B1: But you hated Jasmine at the beginning
B2: *widens smile*
B1: You also said and I quote "what kind of fuckery is this? No 30-yr-old man speaks like this"
B1: *wrings hands* but....you dislike slow burn romance
B2: *casts a pitying look at B1*
B1: You said Ivan and Jasmine were too old. I was ther

If you read a Mariana Zapata novel, be prepared to dig in, become invested in the people and their quirks, lives and inner dialogue. Know there will be detailed experiences which could be part of anybody's life... and it will be used to show more then you ever thought...and that is her gift. You are seeing a life through Zapata's eyes and they are showing all the good, hurt, determined and wanting in Technicolor Splendor.
It is this way of telling her tale ...more
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

SO FREAKING GOOD!! The Queen of Slow Burn does it again =D
My first experience with an MZ book was The Wall of Winnipeg and Me, and I was completely blown away. Slow burns are one ...more
I'm considering myself confused here. I wanted to fall in love with this book, because who doesn't love a slow-burn romances?!
I was expecting something along the lines of ACOMAF or The Hating Game, but the characters and the plot had little substance and neither was their relationship convincing to me. It took place in a span of a year (I think) and jumped from season to season. Was that meant to be the slow-burn aspect? I mean, this is close to 500 pages!!! There could've been so much more bet ...more
"If I can’t skate with you, I don’t want to skate with anyone else.”
Well this is awkward...
This started off as a solid 4 star read for me, and it all went downhill from there. Not to say that this was not a fun read - because it was. I was just expecting more
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to one of the slowest slow burns in the history of slow burns.
Here's what I think's going to happen
This was a unique romance novel. I would even go as far as saying that thi ...more
5++++ I Want a Hug from Vanya (and other benefits) Too Stars
I need someone, a very skilled and agile someone (so, not me). Someone, who's not afraid of getting their hands dirty. Someone who is okay with kidnapping.
You heard me.
I need someone to kidnap Mariana Zapata and make her, even under threat, write all her books, again, with the heroes' point of view.
I don't know, tell her we are all going to chip in and give her ten thousand dogs, we'll think of something, BUT ...more
I'm so excited!!!!
