“My mom said I had serious trust issues, but honestly, the more people I met, the more I didn’t want to meet.”
I don't know what's more sad:
1) finishing this book
2) my love life
3) or this gif
If I were to become the Prime Minister of Canada; every citizen will be required to read all of Mariana Zapata's books. I heard reading at least one book written by Mariana Zapata will clear your skin, make you hear colors, bring world peace

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
"It was when you started taking the most basic things for granted that life decided to teach you that you're an ungrateful idiot"
In a nutshell:
Jasmine grew dreaming about winning competitions with her figure skating. And she worked damn hard for it. Specially with her learning disability. Her family supported her dream and helped her how they could and even though they didn't have a lot of money, she was able to be a great figure skater. Until she decided to change from singles to pairs and s ...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
God, yes. My soul needed this book.
"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
I was so freaking excited to read this one !! I love this author's work, and "Kulti" is one of my all time favorite MF books.
Now I have got to be honest though...I liked this one, but I didn't love it. Not as much as all the others I have read by Marianna..... sorry.
This one started out really awesome. I liked the hero, I loved the heroine and the sports aspect was great...but then...nothing.
Jasmine is a professional figure skater...or well she would have still been if her partner hadn't dumped ...more
the first time i read about this book i knew i was going to read it, after all it's Mariana Zapata. she is one of my favorite romance author. hence i started reading it as soon as i came out.
and i was quite disappointed. while reading it, I enjoyed it but once i finished, and started thinking about it I found that this was not something that i haven't read before. I have read this same thing from this same author with just different set of characters.
Ivan and Jasmine, classic rivalry. they kne ...more
