I had been waiting to read this book for almost a year! Waiting for the release day, so when I got the ARC I was screaming with happiness!! (Thanks Heather!)
It did not disappoint. I LOVED it. The theme is girl falls in love with best friend’s boyfriend. I’ve read books with this topic before but I had not enjoyed none as much as this one. I love the relationship, how they manage the drama, that it’s fast-paced and the fact that not just the girl is responsible, it’s a 50-50 thing.
So when Noah and Hannah start falling for each other, even though Noah is the boyfriend of Ava – Hanna’s best friend – things just happen. First Ava and Noah’s relationship is heading for downfall and when Hanna is in most need of a friend Ava is not there for her, but only Noah; one thing leads to the other and you just can’t blame them, because, well, sometimes it happens.
Fun, beautiful, with great characters – I loved being inside Hannah’s head – and a keeper. Sometimes it Happens is the perfect summer read. No wonder I love Lauren Barnholdt.
