New Release + Review: It Happens by Lani Lynn Vale

Zee + Annmarie and Tan + Jubilee.

Forever. No exceptions.

They were to have the picture-perfect life together. Everything was all planned out.

Jubilee was to marry Eitan and Ezekiel was to marry Annmarie. That’s how it was always supposed to be from the moment that they met. Textbook, right?


Eitan and Annmarie die in a freak accident that never should have happened, leaving the two survivors reeling.

Sixteen years later, Jubilee and Zee can’t even be in the same room with each other before things begin to deteriorate. Too many memories. Too much pain. Not enough forgiveness.

They’re like hellfire and holy water, and neither one of them is willing to admit that they’re wrong.

Then one day things change, and all of a sudden, they’re looking at each other like maybe they aren’t each other’s enemies after all.

I can’t even try to explain how perfect this enemies to lovers read is. Gripping right from the emotional beginning and sailing right in to epically hilarious sarcasm and banter. Zee and Jubilee have a story that is downright addictive. I think I laughed more and swooned more than any other Lani Lynn Vale book while reading this, and that’s saying something because I have loved everything she’s ever written. There is just something about these two that creates a whole new level of awesome and I couldn’t get enough of it!

The enemy aspect of Zee and Jubilee is alive and well right from the start. From childhood, through tragedy and into adulthood these two are constantly at each other’s throats while simultaneously also always having each other’s backs. The sparks that fly every time they’re together are incredible and the barbs they throw at each other had me laughing until I cried. I loved every second of it. Then as these two spend more and more time together instead of running in the opposite direction everything builds into some serious sweep you off your feet, fan yourself from the heat, happy sighing goodness that will 100% steal your heart.

It Happens is one of the funniest I’ve read from LLV. Jubilee and Zee are so perfect for each other even though they can’t really see that at first. I can’t imagine what they both went through as teenagers. Yet they still had to be near each other even through the hate. Jubilee hates Zee. Zee hates Jubilee. Can one night change that?

Jubilee is so funny. She had me cracking up so much. I love her sassy attitude. The way she handles Zee and his attitude will have you rolling. Zee is a so sexy and protective, even though he doesn’t want to protect Jubilee he does. He says it’s for her parents, but deep down its because he feels something for her. The back and forth and the banter between these two is epic.

LLV always has me hooked within the first pages. It Happens is no different. I love seeing old faces and meeting new ones. LLV has created a massive and beautiful family.
