    “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

    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

    "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

    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:

    "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

    *ahem*

    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

    "I could have been the bigger person, but fuck it, I was five foot three and I wasn’t built to be that person ever."


    I was expecting a chemical and passionate story about two people falling for each other, instead I got a fiery little cracker who at first was someone I thought I wouldn't get along with, but I grew to love Jasmine. It was her story about learning to love herself as she was, forgiving and growing. And it was so successful in that.

    I really think a lot of people, like me will enjoy this... I also think a lot of people will love this story for what it is - just like I have. Unfortunately, I speak for myself when I say this story just did not do it for me as a romance, but did so much more as a self journey.



    The Writing

    The narration in this book worked in two ways for me:

    The inner monologue felt odd and frankly, a bit too much at times. I loved Jasmine as a character because even though she was a bitch, and different to any other MC we usually get, she showed how she developed as a person as the story unfolded. The character development was so strong with Jasmine. Cheers to the author for showing that so well.

    Furthermore, I felt like there was a lot of elements to this story that just dragged on or was all together unnecessary.

    “I… I… I…,” one of them stuttered while the other looked like she was about to crap her leotard and tights. Good. I hoped she did. And I hoped it had a diarrhea-like texture so it would go everywhere"


    However, The banter and the budding relationship between Ivan and Jasmine was something that I loved! I laughed out loud multiple times and longed for more screen time of them just going back and forth with comebacks.

    “You probably sit in your Tesla and cry every time you wrinkle your sweaters.” Ivan barked out another laugh that was pretty much shouted up at the ceiling."



    They worked so well off one and another, and that epilogue chapter actually made me smile. I'm happy for them and I would be more happy if I could see more of their relationship growing as a couple rather than just friends. Although, I think what the intention was that for them to reach that stage of familiarity, they needed to be friends first... which in a way, I understand.

    “Take a picture, it lasts longer,” Ivan drawled all of a sudden. I blinked and thought about glancing away but decided that would look even worse.

    “I will. I think the encyclopedia needs an entry on Assholes and could use your picture as an example.”

    His right hand let go of the steering wheel and covered a spot over his heart. “Ouch.”

    I snorted. “Oh please.”



    The Chemistry



    This is where things get messy for me. While reading, I could completely feel the sparks going off between both Jasmine and Ivan, and through each endeavor they faced together. Their chemistry was great. But here's the thing:

    Personally, I felt like their chemistry was at a constant 'best friend' level, because both of them needed that at the time. It felt weird and odd in the last 10% for them to get together as more than just that. It felt rushed and like the author needed to get out that they were actually more than friends.

    Which brings me to the fact that they only did really make a move at around 88%... When they did get together, it all felt too cringey and unrealistic because it was so sudden and anti-climactic. Sure, there was always tension between them.. but whether or not I would classify that as romantic or sexual tension is debatable.

    It was like I was building myself up for this massive thing between them to explode and hyping myself up. Once something did happen, I kinda just looked at my kindle and went "Oh..."



    “Don’t sound so excited,” he replied. Then he smiled. “Which bridge do you live under and how do we get there?”

    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.

    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.
