A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.In New York.And he’s America’s music obsession.The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.I have a career I love.A boyfriend I adore.An apartment, a roommate, a life.I changed. He changed, too.But Mal kept the napkin.Question is, will I keep my word?

“There wasn’t one moment in time, from the second we met, that you weren’t mine. Just like I’ve always been yours.”

From #1 Amazon Bestseller L.J. Shen comes a new, star-crossed lovers romance about loss, love, and meeting The One when you are too young to know how to keep them.

 

Review:

I have a deep love for when authors branch out and try something new. When they step outside their comfort zone, and just go for it. L.J. Shen did that with IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT, and I’m so glad she did.

This trope has been done before, it’s 2nd chance romance, and mixed with “not now but someday” storyline. I’ve always said that 2nd chance romance is not one of my favorites. I know I do read it but I don’t seek it out, or jump on them when I do run across them. That being said, I think she took these things and made them her own. This is angst filled, raw, honest, and just so turbulent that you can’t put it down.

Malachy and Aurora were two souls that were so meant to be, so intense, and just so destined to be together. Malachy did steal any scene he was in. He’s brooding but endearing qualities made it hard not to fall for him. Aurora was so sassy and sweet, I just adored her. There is nothing about these two that did not check every box I had.

I look forward to the next time L.J. Shen decides to step outside of her “box,” and give us another book to lose our minds over.

 

“Life is too short not to kiss the one you want.”
