~Book Review~ In The Unlikely Event – L.J. SHEN

 

In The Unlikely Event

 

by L.J. SHEN

 

 

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.
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?
Influences:
John Fante, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Zadie Smith, Jonathan Franzen, Jandy Nelson, Woody Allen, Stephen King, Bret Easton Ellis
L.J. Shen is USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author of contemporary romance books. She lives in California with her husband, son and lazy cat.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading a good book with a glass of wine and catching up on her favorite HBO and Netflix shows.
Yeah, she’s a badass like that.

Alright so right from the start I could tell this work here was completely different from anything LJ Shen has produced as of yet. A very refreshing new take, a unique blend of angst, and really an emotional yet addictive story from start to the end. 
Malachy Doherty is charming, sweet, humorous, fun, charismatic, definitely swoon-worthy.  He is exactly what Aurora a.k.a. Rory needs at this time in her life as she struggles with daddy issues and going through grief.
Rory is young, sweet, feisty, and fun, when these to meet it’s an instant bond and enough chemistry to burn your eyes out of their sockets.
When the young lovers meet, Mal is a musician solo-ing it up on the streets and Rory is an up-and-coming photographer who takes her camera everywhere.  It all begins with a promise-contract to wed in the unlikely event they meet in the future, it is wrote on a bar napkin that Mal keeps for years in his back pocket.
 
Fast forward into their future and you find the hero and heroine grew jaded, flawed, broken, jagged, and trying to fit their missing pieces together again.  You know this is life in general, there are tons of accusations, assumptions, ups and downs, twists and turns, lies and deceit, we all make mistakes.  But its time to solve all these riddles and they do in the most humorous of ways.  Their story is quirky, cute, loving, heartbreaking and truthful to a fault.  All their broken pieces seems to fit naturally back together.  I cannot really say anything further without spoiling this epic love story except that no chocolate bars were harmed in the devouring of this novel.

Retiring from the military was the right decision for Beckett Fitzgerald. He’s landed the girl of his dreams, the ring is on her finger and the only other mission he’s interested in is putting a baby in Promise’s belly by the time they get back from the honeymoon. Simple, right?

 

Swept off her feet by Beckett, with his scarred face and Monet blue eyes, Promise is finally learning that true love isn’t just for fairy tales. With her brother finally free from the horrors of foster care and her own personal hero hell-bent on teaching her all the magical ways her body belongs to him, her once-in-a-lifetime feels so real.

 

But, before their honeymoon suitcases are packed, a knock on the door and a best friend’s betrayal threaten to tear them apart. Beckett will cross oceans and leave a path of destruction behind to protect what is his, but when promises are broken, and the truth is revealed, will their all-consuming love be enough to carry them through?

 

Author’s Note: You receive both books! Cherish is the conclusion to the best-selling, Promise which is also included here as free bonus content so you can read Beckett & Promise’s story from beginning to end. This book will give you a sweet happily ever after, an insatiable head-over-heels in love alpha hero, panty melting yumminess and no cheating.

She’s a 40 something regular lady who just happens to love badass alpha males who pull your hair and love their women with a lethal passion.

 

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.
