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?


All is fair in love and war, and I”m certainly prepared for battle.


my review

Some books are so difficult to review because there aren’t enough words to describe the story and the emotions you will feel while reading. In the Unlikely Event is one of those books. I instantly fell in love with this story from the very first word. It isn’t just the story that sucks you in and grabs a hold of your heart. It is the characters, Rory and Mal.

Mal will quickly still your heart with his Irish charm, his sweetness and the man is a poet and a musician. Be prepared. Rory is full of sass, she is a fighter, brave and strong. You can’t help but love her. There is so much passion between them from the very first meeting. Their chemistry is instant and the bond can withstand the test of time. These two will have you feeling every single range of emotion from laughing to crying to wanting to throw your kindle and yell to just feeling joy in your heart.

ITUE isn’t like any other LJ Shen book, it is different and it is unique, but it is still completely addicting and will captivate you from the start. This story is truly magical and beautiful and I’m not afraid to say that this is hands down my favorite LJ Shen book EVER. It is a MUST READ and hands down one of the best books of 2019. There is no competition. In the Unlikely Event deserves a million stars!
