During our childhood days, we tend to have these crushes on people older than us that fade as we grow up. We never act upon them but they remain as memories that we always cherish. 

But what happens when two adults with such an age difference fall in love? 

It Happens is a story about how Gautam, a twenty-five-year-old upcoming professional and Roshni, an unmarried thirty-seven-year-old senior management member working in the same multinational bank, face this very question. Can two people with such a vast age difference be compatible? 

The story is a romantic comedy that explores this situation in a light-hearted way as they fall in love, get laughed at by their friends and then develop cold feet, thinking about the repercussions their age difference could have on their marriage. Since this happens in India, where marriage is a major social issue, the plot holds further intrigue. 

They say love is blind and makes one think with the heart, rather than the mind. Will two smart professionals make a mistake by doing so? Or will they listen to their logical senses at the last moment to avert what may be the biggest blunder of their lives?

My Review

The Plot: 
This is the story of Gautam, who falls in love with Roshni who is a senior colleague working in the same bank that he works. They also have a huge age gap. His close friend Rohit and his sister Richa try to make him understand the real problems of marrying a woman who is older than him. But, will he listen to them? What will Gautam decide? Will he think logically and take the right decision? That, you have to learn after reading the story.

What is good?
The narration is cool and friendly. This is a casual read. The character of Rohit is more relatable as he is a good friend to Gautam though irritates him a lot. Richa is the best sister and more of a friend any brother would love to have. Payal is an intelligent and an understanding colleague to Gautam. There are very fewer characters in the book and they are portrayed well.

The message at the end of the book is very nice. When it comes to relationships, it's the love more than the logic which is important. This story highlights the exact point. 

"Keep doing the right things as your heart dictates, and the right things will keep happening to you".

"Put your heart in all your relationships, not logic. " 
What can be better?
First of all, The cover of the book is not very apt. It is misleading as if it is a triangle love story, but there isn't much romance and Payal's character is very small. 

As said in the blurb, this is a Romantic comedy but I felt, romance is very less in the story actually. There is not much story on how Roshni and Gautam fell in love, but there is more stress on the differences and problems they might face due to their age gap.  There are a few grammar mistakes which might have been avoided with a review.

Overall, I recommend this to people who like to read a casual romantic comedy with a message at the end.

My Rating: 3/5

Ps: I have received a free kindle copy from the author through the book club and this is my honest opinion on the book.

About the author

After more than twenty years of working in a highly successful family business and owning a popular brand in the interiors industry, Karan decided it was time to get into self publishing—an idea that came to mind when he saw his son having so much fun reading books. It rekindled a latent passion for writing that he had developed after his college days, leading to his first book. It Happens, along with other books that will come out in due course, will be a testament to his storytelling and creative skills.

Karan has a beautiful family with two young boys, Aakash and Aayansh, and Aarti as his lovely life companion. He is a commerce graduate and a battle-hardened businessman. His other passions include both playing and watching cricket and football, as well as being an avid traveller.
