REVIEW: In The Unlikely Event by L.J. Shen
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 surprising and intricately woven story of love, heart ache, deception and devastation.
Malachy Doherty comes crashing into Rory’s life when she needs someone to show her what passion and love are. Rory is hurt, the wish she had for the life she always wanted with a happy family has come to an end due to the untimely death of her father. Mal is the epitome of the bad boy who makes all the wrong choices in life, Rory is the lost little girl with daddy issues, together they bring out the best in each other as well as the worst.
L.J. Shen has an incredible way with words that consumes you heart and soul, even when you don’t like parts of a story or characters that she creates you can’t help but love every word she writes. I fell in love with the story of In the Unlikely Event, but I didn’t fall in love with these characters. I struggled to like them at times, and I don’t think any character in this story was inherently good, they were all broken and tortured and kept secrets that ruined each other’s worlds. The only character that I truly like was Ashton.
Considering that I didn’t particularly like any of the characters in this angsty story yet completely loved the actual story itself is a true testament to L.J. Shen’s talent when it comes to words. Her talent knows no bounds, she breaks down barriers with her words and talent.
