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.

It’s a Lani Lynn Vale book! That was my first thoughts. I was worried that this book would wreck me. After all the blurb tells us right away that will be dealing with loss. So I mentally prepared myself. After all, sometimes loss to Lani Lynn Vale will leave me in tears and needing to take a break.
Jubilee and Zee don’t get along. They each dated the other’s brother and sister who died when they were teens. I wondered throughout the whole book if Zee didn’t always really have feelings for Jubliee. It seemed like he did and even though it is never said you get that sense. Jubliee and Zee grew up together, their parents being best friends, and now live in the same town. They look out for one another but don’t make a point of even speaking. Until the night they do. From there we go on a roller coaster ride of emotions and the pair attempting to figure out their feelings. From beginning to end the entire book was awesome.
I love seeing characters from other books like Cabe and Brittany. It always makes the books tie together a little better in my opinion. It gives them better roots. Zee’s ex-wife made me want to throat punch her. She got on my nerves and she gets what she deserves. His ex-girlfriend wasn’t much better. Oh and Jubliee’s whatever (I could say but I feel it would give too much away) takes creepy to a whole new level. I mean dang! That dude has issues. this is one that you won’t want to put down.
