Liz’s Review~From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata


“We both know you love me.”


From Lukov with Love is a unique sports romance with complex characters and a lot of heart! With love and skating in the mix, what could be better?


“Give me all your competition dates in advance. It’ll be the Hunger Games on ice. I’ll buy everyone in the family front row seats,”

Jasmine Santos is a competitive skater who has spent her whole life striving to be the best. When her partner suddenly drops her for someone else, she continues to train. When her arch nemesis (and best friend’s older brother) offers her a one year contract to skate with him, she is dumbstruck. Ivan Lukov is a highly decorated skater who has made it his mission in life to harass Jasmine. So when these two team up to take the ice, sparks are certain to fly!

“Regardless of what happens, you will always be the best partner I’ve ever had. You’ll always be the hardest working person I’ve ever known. There will only ever be you.”

Told in multiple POV, From Lukov with Love is a slow burn romance full of heart. If you are a fan of the 1992 movie The Cutting Edge than you are certain to enjoy this read. The banter and witty text between these two kept me laughing the entire time. The passion both of these characters have for skating (and each other) is simply unparalleled. When these two discover the love that exists between them my heart swelled with emotion. Jasmine is one tough woman and paired with Ivan she excels on the ice and in life!


Overall, I highly recommend From Lukov with Love to anyone who enjoys a slow burn love story between two adversaries. This was my first Mariana Zapata story and I can guarantee it will not be my last! I look forward to reading more from this author!

*I listened to the audible version of this book! The narration was fantastic!
