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? Wrong. 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.
It Happens is the latest book in the Bear Bottom Guardians MC series and I was obsessed with Jubilee and Zee from the very first page until the last. It Happens is funny, angsty, emotional, suspenseful, and is exactly what we have come to expect from this series but this one was even more of all of those things. The added loss that both the characters have felt just made this one something more as well as cemented the history and connection between them.
Jubilee and Zee are the poster children for enemies to lovers, these two fight and bicker worse than cats and dogs do but all that fighting, is it leading up for some combustible chemistry between them? Lord have mercy these two were hot! I love how they never lost that edge of bickering; it was almost a form of foreplay between them. Both had me laughing my ass off with some of the comments they would make to each other. I especially loved the Wednesday Adams reference about Jubilee’s looks. While there was that suspense we all come to expect from a Lani Lynn Vale book, it was balanced well and it didn’t overshadow Zee and Jubilee’s relationship.
Lani Lynn Vale is an author that is an automatic must read whatever she writes kind of author. I know I am always going to have a laugh or ten with her books and It Happens was just another great addition to the list of her books that I love. It Happens is a must read for sure!
