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?



In the Unlikely Event was a beautifully spellbinding and angsty as f*ck second chance romance that wholeheartedly captivated every inch of my soul…even managing to break through the dark parts, shining in warm light. This is the kind of story that will have you smiling from ear to ear one moment and clutching your chest in the next breath. It was a story so unlike anything L.J. Shen has ever written before and it was completely mind-blowing…my mind and heart was BLOWN to smithereens.

Aurora “Rory” Belle Jenkins and Malachy “Mal” Doherty’s chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS! Their story took me on the ride of my life and I never knew someone could experience so many emotions at the same time. The love these two shared was EPIC and I knew they belonged together, even if there were obstacles standing in their way. When fate FINALLY intervenes and they are reunited, things aren’t always as they seem.

Not only do we have the opportunity to hear Rory and Mal’s thoughts along the way, but we also get to experience a unique viewpoint through the eyes of the napkin, a cow (yep you read that right) and everything in between! I absolutely LIVED for those moments and my heart swooned throughout their journey! This is HANDS DOWN one of all-time favorite reads and one of L.J. Shen’s BEST RELEASES!
