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.

I’d heard great things about this book, and because the synopsis was giving me major The Cutting Edge vibes, I really wanted to read it! (And thank you to my friend Emilie for letting me borrow her copy!)

Generally, I enjoyed this one, although I did find it took some time for me to really get into it.

This is definitely a slowwwww burn romance! But I like the hate-to-love trope, so this was fun. And I really liked the figure skating element and getting a look at all of the hard work that goes into competing at a high level.

I did find the writing really clunky or awkward at times, which jarred me out of the story on occasion, and I do feel like the story dragged on a bit too long.

This was a fun read, and I’m looking up Mariana Zapata’s other books on Goodreads to see which one I’d like to read next!

    I wound up enjoying this book so much that I immediately bought the rest of the books in the series and read them all one right after the other!
