From Lukov with Love
Books | Fiction / Romance / General
"If someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one. After seventeen years--and countless broken bones and broken promises--she knows her window to compete in figure skating is coming to a close. But when the offer of a lifetime comes in from an arrogant idiot she's spent the last decade dreaming about pushing in the way of a moving bus, Jasmine might have to reconsider everything. Including Ivan Lukov"--Page 4 of cover.

"Available on KU. Saw so many good reviews of this book so I was excited to read. It was a good book but not my favourite writing style or tropes. It’s the slowest of slow burns. I mean they don’t get together until the last 5% of the book slow which I do not like. There were a lot of moments in the book that seemed like they were going to build the tension and then the next chapter would fast forward to months later out of no where. This book has one spicy scene that is pretty tame. It’s also single POV which is not my favourite. Depth of character development was good. I feel very meh about this book but if super slow burn, enemies to lovers, and single POV are your jam this is a great book for you! "
"I like this book. I think Ivan and Jasmine are literally perfect for each other with their stubbornness and banter. Also, I love scenes where one of the main characters takes care of the other main character when they are sick. Also, the fact that Ivan kind of seemed to be in love with her the whole time is really heartwarming. I love the aspect of family and the animals and I definitely learned some more about ice skating. I don’t mind slow burn, and I am excited to read more of Mariana Zapata’s books!"
"So, this is a double review. I read From Lukov with Love and then the Wall of Winnipeg and Me right after. While I definitely liked both, I think the slow burn was too slow for me. I get why it's written from a single character perspective, since it would ruin the surprise of the MC having been in love with the FC the whole time... But I really miss that side of stories when it's not there. It's realistic, I guess, since we never really know what our partner is thinking or feeling unless they tell you, but for me, it builds tension and drama when I can feel a love story from both sides. Side note, I liked From Lukov better of the two. "
"This is my new favorite Slow burn/Enemies to Lovers book. I cannot believe I put off reading this book for so long. I absolutely loved this book. IVAN LOKOV DESERVES MORE HYPE! I 100% recommend this book ❤️"
"I loved this book! This is my new favorite Slow Burn/Enemies to Lovers book! I loved the banter between Jasmine and Ivan. IVAN LUKOV DESERVES MORE HYPE! He is the book boyfriend I didn’t know I needed. I 100% recommend this book ❤️"
"This book was amazing! Of the Mariana Zapata books I’ve read, this one falls between Kulti (fav) and Wall of Winnepeg and Me (still love). The romance is pseudo-enemies to friends to lovers and the lovers is in the last 50 pages of the book. I’ve always enjoyed how Zapata manages to write characters that feel like a part of your life by the end of the book. This was no different. I loved how Jasmine was so focused on skating and the character development was fantastic. Ivan was also such a great character and seeing their partnership slowly develop and their support of each other - *chefs kiss*. Such a wonderful read with such excellent storytelling. 5⭐️, 2🌶 (one vaguely graphic sex scene)"
"One of my favorite authors. "
