Book Review: In the Unlikely Event by L.J. Shen

42773686. sy475

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 is a intense, second chance romance. This story brings angst to a whole new level with a secret that will claw at your heart. This book is very different from the author's previous stories. It's told in a unique style that allows for the supporting characters to be heard (I mean all the supporting characters, human and inanimate objects).

A promise is made, written on a napkin after a one-night stand. Aurora Bell Jenkins agrees to the napkins demands when leaving Malachy Doherty behind. Eight years later when Aurora and Malachy meet again Malachy is no longer interested in the napkin contract but rather revenge. Revenge for all the hurt and pain Princes Aurora of New Jersey had inflicted in the in-between.

Although her assigned project includes working with Malachy, she isn't interested in meeting the napkins demands.  Malachy is nothing but a jerk to her. She has a boyfriend and plans on staying faithful. 

Malachy and Aurora can only fight off their connection for so long. The truth about their time apart changes everything. I ate this story up. I loved the characters connection. The supporting characters reality. There's a lot of truths to be heard. 5 Stars
