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?

I know when picking up a Lani book, I'll laugh, cry, swoon, get angry and laugh again. Everything I want in a good entertaining story I get with very book. I love all the intertwining stories, and characters that pop up from past books. If you've read other Lani books you'll know to one click this too. Zee and Jubilee don't disappoint at all. Their constant bickering is so funny and you're just waiting with anticipation for the lust to take over. It's well worth the wait.💘

Zee and Jubilee’s story was one of my favorite LLV reads. The plot absolutely sucked me in. I found myself intrigued by the different personalities and how they complimented one another even as they manifested their contrast. I liked that the dynamics were unique and that it felt like something different from what I’ve read in the past.

Individually I loved Zee’s protectiveness and care. He was serious and strong but he had a softer side that Jubilee brought forth though he wasn’t seeing it. Jub

Zee and Jubliee's book.
Overall it was a good read that was trademark LLV.
The only thing that irked me was the heroine, hence the 4 stars.She was in her early thirties, but acted like a young twentysomething .
Loved the epilogue!
 Leo (Queen of the Rants and Spoilers)
A 31 year old virgin heroine. A hero who has been married and has been in relationship not to mention he blames her for his high school sweetheart and his brother death. His dead love is/was heroines twin sister. The heroine was also in a relationship with his twin brother.

"It wouldn't do for him to know he didn't annoy me as much as he used to."

Zee & Jubilee grew up together, and even back then they fought incessantly. They might have just avoided each other if their siblings weren't dating each other. And then, after the accident, seeing each other only brought up painful memories. But the hate remained and they continued to hurl insults at each other. The strange thing is that only applies to each other, if someone else tried it, they'd get their ass handed

I cannot get past the « his twin brother was dating her and he was dating her twin sister, then they died and a lot of years later the remaining characters got together » thing, that is just too farfetched for me...
There is also a bunch of suspense side story going on but I could not be bothered.

Oh and it has the « over 30and still a virgin » thing going on, while the H did not stay a virgin. If it helps some of the other readers I don’t think he had slept with her twin sister.

The banter, the sexual chemistry, the hate. Ooh the hate. This book had it all in spades. The animosity was palpable, spanning over decades yet these characters were fiercely protective over each other. There’s a thin line between love and hate and our MCs push at that boundary.

Jubilee and Zee did not get along from the first time they had the pleasure of meeting at the tender age of 6 to Zee’s 9. There families were friends which made them constantly be around each other which later developed t
I was hesitant to read this story because I was afraid that both of them still pinned for their dead high school sweethearts. However, this plot forcused more on enemies to lovers. It's great to read how they argued with each other all the time but couldn't resist the attraction.

I'd like to read the detail of their first night together. Unfortunately, all we got were only pieces.

Great epilogue.
Let's start off by saying we are a a fan of this author's books and we are always looking forward to read the next book that is out in their current series and I have to say that this was one of the funniest books yet to date.

We really enjoyed the story as it really had a great cast of characters, was funny although the plot itself did not have a lot going on in it but, it did surround a couple who have always had a love/hate relationship since been teenagers and a family tragedy that both of t

OMG! It Happens is THE BEST Lani Lynn Vale book I have ever read. I am completely blown away and so in love. It was full of snark, sex appeal and was absolutely phenomenal. I FLOVE Zee and Jubilee and their story. If you love enemies to lovers, banter for days and an amazing story, you haven't seen anything until you read this. It was absolutely brilliant! 

Jubilee Cope and Ezekiel "Zee" McGrew have always had an acrimonious relationship. Sworn enemies since childhood, there is something about on
Why I continue to read her books:
1. Hot alpha males that I sometimes wish were real
2. Somewhat good plot lines
3. Heroines who have no filter and are funny
4. I’ve come this far through so many spinoffs, I havent reached my threshold yet.
5. You don’t have to wait FOREVERRRR to get a new book from her.

Just wanted to put that out there.

I liked this one(like i usually do) and that she made an effort to divulge their past to us so we knew why they hated each other.

That being said, idk wtf that plot

What I like about these books is that they're easy and entertaining reads without relying on what had come previously in the series. This book was a slight contradiction to that, in so much as I could tell that it was relying on some o

I mean with a blurb like that it had my mind going a hundred miles a minute thinking about what was going to happen here.

Two sets of twins. Childhood sweethearts. A tragic moment that changed their lives irrevocably.

Fast forward a few years and at least one thing never changed between Jubilee and Ezekiel and that is their need to goad the ever loving shit out of one another. Since the moment they met it had always been fire meet gasoline. After that tragic day the words became harsher with the

It Happens is the sixth book in the Bear Bottom Guardians MC series by Lani Lynn Vale, a series that has landed on my all-time favorites list. While this series is rooted in another series, or two actually, it is not a spin-off of the Heroes of the Dixie Wardens or the Freebirds series. It does, however, expand on them. Favorite characters from those series either appear in these stories or Vale introduces new heroes and heroines who are the offspring of those characters. What makes L

Well, Zee and Jubillee’s love story was quite a tumultuous and never boring journey!!! And surprising in so many ways, that I did not see coming, at ALL!

Zee has been one very intriguing – much like a lot of his MC brothers – character, that I’ve been dying to uncover, but I did not expect all this background and his already existing – or should I say prickly, lol – connection with Jubillee, his childhood ‘friend’/nemesis.

A fun filled blast of a story, that has a heart rendering storyline, suspense, a little mystery, one really hot guy and a sassy hot gal to put him in his place and you have as whole lot of excellent reading.
Zee and Jubilee have history, and it’s not the kind you can just forget. Unfortunately they butt heads quite often, they snap and growl, bicker and grunt at each other, also seen tragedy and lost loved ones. And although they dislike each and their differences seem huge, Zee and Jubilee alwa

Another treat from Lani Lynn Vale in the bear bottom MC Series. This is an unusual story in some ways. Jubilee and Zee grew up together as their parents are best friends. Jubilee and Zee really clash and have all their lives. When they are a little older after being hit by lightening and their siblings are killed in the same strike leaving a whole they both still feel in their life.
Still avoiding each other, but both secretly looking out for each othe
The story didn't have any pep in it. A little bit boring. Nothing really happens. Again virgin Heroine with an experienced Hero who was once married.

‘There’s a thin line between love and hate.’

I don’t think I’ve ever read about two characters’ relationship that embodies this saying more than Ezekiel (Zee) McGrew and Jubilee Cope in Lani Lynn Vale’s It Happens. The fact that these two have known each other since they were young and have had to endure each other’s childish antics, sharp tongue, and jerkish behavior since their initial introduction would drive anyone over the edge, but these two also have to contend with a past that they blame

I wasn't wowed by this book, but it was still pretty good. The whole plot is a little (okay, a lot) far-fetched. From the way their twins died to the plot twist in the end, it was all just out there.

Zee & Jubilee have basically been 'enemies' since they were young kids. They've always been at each other's throats and never really have anything nice to say about the other even as adults. When they were teens, Zee was dating Jubilee's twin sister, Annmarie, who was pretty much the exact opposite

Each time I read one of LLV's Bear Bottom Guardian books I say this ones my favourite then that gets surpassed by the next one, just goes to show that she raises her game with this series with each book.

Having met Zee in the other book in the series, again he was a character that intrigued me (well to be honest they all do :-)) and his story really pulled at my heartstrings but yet made me laugh.

Zee and Jubilee grew up together but they never got on. They fought constantly

First off. I love all of Lanis books... But for somereason the blurb just made me not go all gaa over wanting to read it since I am not a huge fan of these kind of story lines.. Still one clicked it. As I do all her books.. And WOW! loved it

Jubilee and Ezekiel (Zee)

Jubilee is awesome! There is no other way to say it. She is kick as in her own way. Takes no bs! As an awesome friend. Tho her job is a lille freaky. She is small next to Zee and most say the white as freak skin and black hair. Love
I can’t find it in my heart to give Lani Lynn’s books any less than 5 stars! Her books are like coming home to me. Even when I’m in a book hangover from another book previously read and my head is all over the place, I read her books and just feel good! She is probably one of my most favorite authors on the planet and I love how she writes and what she writes every single time!

I am totally enjoying this whole series. This one is no exception. Zee and Jubilee are frenemies at best. They have a tragic history and have continued to be tortured by being in the same room much less talking to each other. Somehow, as adults, they have continued to live near each other. Zee watches over Jubilee and she knows that he will do anything to help her if asked.

I love when that ah ha moment comes where they realize perhaps they were meant to be all along. A road trip and so

I have to say that with each book Lani brings it to the table and I love each one as they come. I can't get enough and this one had me laughing and yelling at my kindle because these two were so funny. They hated each other and for no rerason at all but they fought like hell and they argued and they just straight out hated each other but as time went on Jubilee and Zee started to see things differently.

It does really happen and Zee and Jubilee are still holding guilt, blame and resentment 16 years on. One blurry night things change but what will it take for them both to put aside the guilt and blame to realize what is right in front of their eyes. Their story is fiery, hot tempered, steamy as and packed full of quick wit. These two draw you in and have you trying to decide whether to referee or cheer them on. A story of childhood connections that on reflection may have always been more than ju ...more

With how this one started out I didn't expect to like it, the fighting/sniping between Jubilee and Zee got old fast. But once they crossed a line I liked how things changed for them. They pretty much acknowledged they were in a relationship and ok with it. Their shared, very long history, helped them understand each other and not get jealous of the past. I could have done with out the drama at Jubliee's house, that seemed so odd and out of left field. Wished there could have been more with both ...more
