Review – In the Unlikely Event by L.J. Shen

In the Unlikely Event AMAZON

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.

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?

Wow. Wow. Wow. So many thoughts, feelings, and emotions with this one. In true L.J. Shen fashion, she delivered a unique, sexy, emotional, and memorable standalone romance with In the Unlikely Event that was so different and unexpected, yet classic L.J. Shen at the same time.

   Mal and Rory’s story made me feel the full spectrum of emotions: happy, sad, confused, angry, puzzled, frustrated, anxious, and so much more. The plot had so many twists and turns that I was dying to know what happened, but L.J. Shen kept me guessing until the very end. Mal and Rory were a perfect match for each other, and though they were both broken and tortured souls and difficult to figure out at first, and their journey was anything but easy, they were definitely soulmates and deserved a happy ending.

   In the Unlikely Event was unlike anything I’ve ever read, and though it wasn’t what I expected, it turned out so much better than I’d hoped. I was so happy with the conclusion to Mal and Rory’s story and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Definitely looking forward to reading more from this author!
