Then He Happened
Jason Spearman, who we met in Maybe later, is Jack's younger brother, and Eileen McBean meet under less than ideal circumstances. Jason's deadbeat cousin Marek , and Eileen's spoiled ,flaky sister Charlie, find themselves expecting a baby, and Jason and Eileen are sucked into planning their shotgun wedding. Both Jason and Eileen are the walking wounded. Ten years ago Jason was left brokenhearted at the alter with a church full of guests. Eileen is the middle child. She's brilliant, has two degrees, and is about to graduate with her doctorate! None of that is important to her parents. She's taken advantage of by her family, expected to clean up her sister's messes, and generally ignored by her family. She is expected to plan her sister (bridezilla's) wedding, which happens to be on her birthday. Her birthday always manages to turn into a disaster, most times with her family not even acknowledging it. As Jason and Eileene dive into planning the wedding they run into some road blocks, but manage to work around them. The longer they work together, the more comfortable they are together. They both have a quirky sense of humor, and love 80's songs. They become friends. I love Claudia's books, one minute she has you tearing up, the next minute you are cracking up. I have loved meeting the two Spearman brother. There is one more brother to go, I hope we get to know him too!
This is the second rom-com story that Claudia Burgoa has written, and what can I say—I LOVED IT!!! This is definitely one of the greatest ones I have read so far. It is fun, witty banter, embarrassingly hilarious situations, lots of steeeamy romance, and moments of heartbreak. I found myself at times laughing so hard and other times using profanity at one character that my husband thought I had lost it a bit.
Jason Spearman is a very handsome playboy, who was considered to be cold-hearted, but there was a reason why after what he went through, but actually he is very charismatic, charming, uses facetious remarks, and he definitely was not ready for a committed relationship and to fall in love. Eileen McBean is twenty-six, a physical therapist, and graduating with her PhD degree on her birthday. Her family treats her like a long lost child. When you meet her older sister, Charlie, you will understand why I used profanity.
Eileen met Jason at her parent’s home, where he was in attendance to help his cousin Marek, the groom, and a world class disaster. Eileen and Jason gets railroaded into planning a wedding of no return for her certifiable sister—the bridezilla! That’s enough to drive anyone crazy. Read about Eileen and Jason’s journey while planning this bridezilla wedding, and how they each have their imperfections to deal with but their journey makes them realize that they can overcome anything and any impediments. You get a chance to see the progression of their love. Claudia Burgoa’s books will be salacious with an engrossing love story, interesting plots and dialogues with strong conflicts, artfully developed main characters, and they will keep you reading to the end to find out what happened—they will pique your interest and drawn you in. The storylines are fluid, and they will pique your interest. HIGHLY recommend this book.
Then He happened is such a great story. From the moment you read the first couple of sentences you are hooked. In this book we read the story of playboy Jason and do gooder Eileen. They could be anymore opposites but you know what they say opposites attract. Eileen the ever “fixer” in her family is sick and tired of being the person everyone looks for to clean up messes. Jason the typical playboy that longs to be in a committed relationship but too scared to try. Thrown them in to plan a shotgun wedding and we see sparks fly. I definitely give this book a 5!starvrating and highly recommend it. Great job to this author. Another hit!!!
