BOOK BLURB:
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?
It Happens…

BOOK REVIEW:

The story revolves around the protagonist Gautam, who works in a multi-national bank. He falls in love with Roshni, who is a senior Vice-President of their company and 12 years old to Gautam.
Gautam expresses his feelings with his best friend Rohit, who also works in the same bank. Rohit who is totally opposite to Gautam tells him about the problems which they both might face if they get married. He highlights how this big age difference can lead to problems. Gautam, on the other hand is confident about his true love and he believes that nothing can stop him from marrying her. Gautam's sister too advice him to think about the issues that they might face in this relationship. He takes time to think again on this decision. Whether he is able to convince himself to get into this  marriage or not, you'll have to read the book.

I loved reading this different romantic story. I think more and more authors must write story on topics which are still considered taboo in our society so that more and more people can express their true love without any boundaries of age, caste, class, etc. I loved the writing style of the author, the language used is simple. I would like to recommend this book to all readers who love reading romantic stories!

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.
