“Romance masterpiece” – Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author

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?

My Review…

I just flove Ms. Shen’s standalone stories and this story is one of the top reads by Ms. Shen so far!

This story is about Rory and Mal, but it’s so much more.  It’s kismet and destiny and how the whole wide world doesn’t feel as big as it is.  It’s a shared past and hidden truths, it’s misinformation and unrequited feelings of hurt, anger, and love….

Malachy is a true artist, his whole being screams it. His is the epitome of an artist’s soul and an artist’s heart and you can’t help but love him and sometimes love to hate him.  Ms. Shen was able to write a character that you could really “see” with Malachy.

Rory, oh this girl…she is so sheltered from the world and she doesn’t even know it!  When the secrets and omissions come to light you can see her world unravel and then get woven back together even stronger.

You get all the feels with this book, laughter…the different POVs in this story were fantastically funny and sometimes sad and hard to read but read it you must.  This story will compel you to finish it and you will be glad you did.  It’s gonna make you a bit misty and even cry, but it’s so worth it.  And oh my me you are gonna swoon during the smexy times!! I needed a fan, a stiff drink and a cigarette (don’t judge 🙂 ) after reading this!

Well done Ms. Shen, so well done!
