I've recently discovered a love of anything written by LJ Shen, and I've been gobbling them up! This one is a bit different than her others, much lighter and a bit wacky. It's a second-chance rom-com with a little angst thrown in for good measure. I loved the premise - "if we ever meet again then we'll get married, even if we're already married to other people...let fate decide." Sometimes fate has other plans. Mal and Rory's love story is messy and sometimes sad, their path back to one another filled with deceit and lies. But in the end, fate always wins. I really enjoyed their story, especially the "notes from" sections, even though a few were a bit weird. It's romantic and funny, the perfect summer read.

"You're the four seasons, Rory. And I promise to be your shelter in the winter. To bask in you in the summer.To crash into love with you in spring like it's the first time we've met. And when you fall? I promise to always pick you up."

This guy can move me without touching me, and touch me without laying a finger on me.

From The Publisher


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 romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom's Jackie Collins novels. I love the steamy romances and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever, it's Chase Abandonato...for now.

I’m a Mom of 2 daughters, 4 cats and a dog, a travel junkie, cruising in particular, and a Disney fanatic. I love all things beach and all things books!
