Then He Happened | BOOK REVIEW

Jason is a cynical rich playboy. He doesn’t take life seriously. He doesn’t believe in settling down. Eileen’s thirtieth birthday is almost here. But as always she’s her parent’s afterthought. Her family is too busy planning a shotgun wedding for her older sister—and she has to help. It’s just another year where she’s overlooked. But the best man is smoking hot and actually notices her and makes her feel special. Jason doesn’t believe in commitment, but Eileen intrigues him. She’s not the kind of girl he usually hooks up with. She doesn’t even fall for his charm. He’s made it his task to convince her that he’s not the shallow man she thinks he is. But can Jason give up his playboy lifestyle to become what Eileen needs? 


Then He Happened is the first Claudia Y. Burgoa novel I have read. The second book of The Spearman Family Series. It’s a typical story of a wealthy bachelor who met a quite challenging woman. Jason was from a well-off family, good looking and a successful businessman. He didn’t want commitment. So he was contented with having one-night stands. But his relationship history will prove that he is one of the nice guys. His perspective on love changed after his fiancée left him at the altar. Eileen has been busy pleasing her family and has no time for romantic relationships. She has experienced the middle child syndrome. That didn’t make her rebellious nor turned her into being the black sheep of the family. She’s mature, dependable, and protective. Though, growing up, she needs to earn her parent’s approval. The problem was they always favor their eldest, Charlie.

Eileen and Jason will meet as the two people in their lives decide to marry, Charlie and Marek. They were obliged to prepare for the wedding of these two lost people. In the process, they got to know each other better and fell in love. The two of them just clicked. They can relate to each other, have a lot of something in common, and get each other’s humor.

It was a fast-paced love story. Too good to be true. Not overly dramatic and is just light-hearted. The protagonists are likable as well. Eileen has a good sense of humor. Jason, despite of being born with a silver spoon, is aiming for a simple life with the woman he loves. They are there for each other, especially Jason. He wanted to protect Eileen from a family who didn’t even care about her birthday and graduation.

I rate this book 4 out of 5.
