LOVE HAPPENS

 
Author:
Vince Nolan

“LOVE HAPPENS by Vince Nolan, is an interesting and entertaining read. In this light-hearted fantasy, we get to enter the world of magic, and see what happens when a genie and a witch meet and fall in love.

“I found this story both entertaining and absorbing, and was sorry to see it end. The characters are likable and fun, and the narrative is free of the kind of negative events we often hear about these days.

“I heartily recommend LOVE HAPPENS and eagerly await more from this author. Bravo, Vince Nolan!”

~ Jason-Cristofe Marcello, DDiv

“Is love ‘all around’? Is it blind’? Is it ‘right around the corner’? There are no easy answers. But what is certain is this...love is there. You just need to know where to find it. Such is the case for two star-crossed lovers in LOVE HAPPENS by Vince Nolan, a sweet, well-written approach to a not-too-typical love story, set in the real world about two magical characters from different cultures. Witches and genies are forbidden contact, let alone marriage. But once this charming pair decide to make it work, they’re faced with a new hurtle – their future fathers-in-law...who are none too pleased with the couple’s decision.

“LOVE HAPPENS is just that...love happening. Will they be strong enough to overcome the hurdles placed in their paths? If their love is true and from the heart, no matter the circumstances, then LOVE can HAPPEN! So just sit back, hang on, and enjoy the story unfold as this determined pair face obstacles that put their love to the ultimate test.”

Vince Nolan’s Love Happens presents a fast-paced love story with a creative magical twist. Like many love stories, Love Happens can trace its roots to the Bard’s Montagues and Capulets or perhaps the Sharks and Jets of the Bernstein/Sondheim collaboration. Nothing wrong with finding inspiration in the classics. The trick is to let that inspiration take readers somewhere unexpected. Readers may think there’s nothing new to spin from these classics, but Nolan’s story of forbidden love between a genie and a witch quickly proves them wrong.

The tale unfolds in three main sequences, the courtship, the conflict, and the conclusion. While there is plenty of action, this is not a prose heavy fantasy story. Nolan limits his world building urges to just what is needed. Despite this being his debut novel, he slips bits and pieces into dialog with the skill of an accomplished screenwriter. Readers learn what they need to know, when they need to know it. This understated style allows readers to focus on the essential element of the story – the forbidden love of Becca and Ram. After overcoming their mutual dislike for each other the lovers’ fathers plot to secretly destroy their marriage. Nolan sprinkles in just enough humor to offset the dark timbre of parents scheming to ruin their children’s lives. The overall effect is well told tale that hits the familiar love story points from a wonderfully different perspective.

While written for adults Love Happens contains no explicit or foul language. The story contains a few references to sexual situations, but Nolan is an author who recognizes the power of a reader’s imagination. As such this is a romance that’s entertaining for adults and a safe entry point for young adults not interested in dripping romance scenes. There are a few scenes with magical attack sequences which Nolan keeps vivid without the need for graphic description. If Hollywood turned Love Happens into a movie and remained true to the author’s vision, it would receive a PG rating. With that qualification, I highly recommend this well told story to anyone interested in a refreshing take on love and family.

My first impression is wait, what? I want more. LOVE HAPPENS moves smoothly and has a great mix of magic, mayhem and romance. I highly recommend this book to any who like a good story featuring witches, djinn, and antiquities. I loved it.

LOVE HAPPENS by Vince Nolan is a refreshing ride through the magical and mythical. It presents a fascinating account of the collision of two supernatural cultures brought together and bound by love. Its breezy exploration of the joy and unavoidable complications yielded is charming and engaging. It whisks you away and doesn’t let go as you jet toward the conclusion and age-old message. This is a highly recommended tale that stays with you long afterward, fit for everyone with a heart.
