Publisher's Summary

From the instant New York Times bestselling author of Fourth Wing, Rebecca Yarros, comes a sweeping romance about the sustained power of chance encounters.

When Izzy Astor gets on a plane to go home, she isn’t expecting much. It’s the usual holiday travel experience: busy, crowded, stressful.

Then she spots her seatmate, who is anything but ordinary. Nate Phelan sports dark hair, blue eyes, and a deliciously rugged charm that Izzy can’t resist. Their connection is undeniable. Izzy never believed in destiny before, but she does now.

Just ninety seconds after takeoff, their plane goes down in the Missouri River.

Their lives change. They change. Nate goes on to a career in the military while Izzy finds her way into politics. Despite a few chance encounters over the years, the timing never feels right.

Then comes a high-stakes reunion in Afghanistan, where Nate is tasked with protecting Izzy’s life.

He’ll do anything to keep her safe. And everything to win her heart.

Critic Reviews

“Yarros explores the horrors of war and the aftermath of traumatic experiences. Her authentic characters feel equally strong and vulnerable, and their will-they-won’t-they hits all the right notes…Readers are sure to be moved.” —Publishers Weekly

“An undeniable connection between two people amidst chaos intertwines to pack a satisfying emotional punch.” —Heidi McLaughlin, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author

In the Likely Event is propulsive. It grips you from the moment Izzy and Nate lay eyes on each other and never lets you go. I couldn't stop reading, swooning, or letting my jaw drop with every twist and turn the story took. But you're always safe in Rebecca Yarros's hands.” —Ali Rosen, James Beard nominated host of Potluck with Ali

5* Timing Stars

I loved this second chance military romance that spanned a decade.

I enjoyed the dual POV and learning the thoughts of Izzy and Nate as they navigated their lives from their first-time meeting on a plane that crashed and then when their career paths took them in opposite directions and where timing was always an issue that stood between them.

There were some heartfelt and angsty moments to their story. I struggled to put the book down as I was chasing the ending hoping that the stars would align for these two soulmates to eventually be reunited and have the HEA they both so deserved.

In my opinion no one writes military romance like Rebecca Yarros. I love her storytelling.

Carly Robins and Teddy Hamilton did a tremendous job giving Izzy and Nate their voices.

beautiful

it was beautifully written and two of my favourite narrators brought the characters to life. they had me believing I was watching a movie instead of listening to an audiobook. I pictured and felt every moment of the chapters journeys ❤️ Rebecca Yarros is becoming a favourite author for sure.

♥️ Nate & Izzy ♥️

A great slow burn military romance story that kept me hooked from beginning to end. Isabeau and Nathaniel were destined to be together, and when the universe brought them together on that fateful flight to St. Louis, you knew this was going to be a great story.

I enjoyed listening to their complex and sometimes frustrating relationship, that spanned over a ten year period, and the obstacles and challenges they had to overcome in order to find their HEA. And it was all beautiful brought to life by the talented voices of Carly and Teddy.

great read

In the likely event is a heart wrenchingly beautiful book. I couldn't put it down, made me laugh, cry, and gasped in shock. Not at all what I was expecting after just reading Rebecca Yarros's Fourth Wing, but I very much enjoyed it.
