It should have been easy.

I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.

I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.

The worst part is that I should have known better.

Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.

“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”

Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.

Guess what? I didn’t listen.

I signed the contract.

World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.

My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.

Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.

Then he took my heart.

Then he took my all.


OMG! OMG! OH MY FREAKING GOODNESS! Where in the HECK is that THOUSAND star rating button because if any book deserves that high of praise it would certainly be this one!

Midnight Blue by LJ Shen was an addictively captivating read that will capture a reader whole body and soul. I seriously cannot stop thinking about Indie and Alex even though I finished their beautifully intense story days ago. This story broke me. It tore my heart right out of my chest and held on for dear life until the very end. In many ways I feel as if my heart is still trapped inside my kindle just waiting for another book to capture it as much as this story did. Although I don’t think that will every be possible. I think that LJ Shen may have forever ruined be for any one of her future characters because these two will forever hold a special place in deep in my heart.

This story left me absolutely speechless and I know hands down that it will stay in my top 5 reads of 2018! The moment I turned on my kindle and saw this book was downloading I immediately wanted to drop everything and dive in, but I forced myself to “adult” for the rest of the day and around 11pm I allowed myself to snuggle up with Alex. I knew right from the beginning that it was going to take every ounce of my willpower to put down this book once I started. Let me just say that it was damn near impossible and I literally stayed up until my kindle smacked me in the face because I could hardly keep my hands on it. Of course the moment my eyes opened up a few hours later my eyes were glued to the screen until I turned to the last page.

Indie and Alex are truly unlike any book couple I have ever met. They just have this intensity that is really hard to explain and I must say that it defiantly needs to be discovered firsthand by the reader. Now that I’ve blabbed a ton about their story I have to leave you with this message – “Go and buy Midnight Blue right this very second! I mean it. Do it. NOW! Trust me you will not regret your decision.”
