Midnight Blue

Author: LJ Shen

Release Date: January 18th

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.



5+ Stars!

Wow, just wow! LJ Shen you have done it again. Left me wanting so much more and having another book that I loved. I absolutely loved Alex and Indie’s story. The troubled rock star and the girl who has hardly anything but will give everything for her family.

I found myself wanting to just read straight through without putting down my kindle but also not wanting to finish the story. I wanted to just keep reading more of this amazing story. To see where Alex and Indie’s future would go and what it would become.

You can’t help but to love Alex even in moments when you hate him, and I have to admit there were plenty of moments I found myself shaking my head and thinking that Indigo should just smack him. However, she was doing her job and carried herself with such grace that I admired her.

Did I mention that ending.. oh I can’t even get started on it. Mind blown! Holy canoli talk about a twist that I did not see coming, and I mean at all. My heart broke for Indie, for the heartache that she felt, but I loved how LJ Shen wrote everything to come back full circle.

Your words carried me away Mrs. Shen!

“We needed each other. Now. On this tour. Like air, and oxygen, and the pulse beneath our flesh. For once, I understood what he’d meant about being above gravity. There was a world outside, I knew it. But there was a smaller asteroid on which we lived, and that was the only place I wanted to be in that moment.” -Indie

Just sitting here writing this review, looking back at this book makes me enjoy it all over again. To appreciate all the words on the pages, to further respect an author who put her all into this book so that myself, and everyone else who gets to read this book could escape life and discover a world of a man who seemed to have it all and yet was missing so much. A woman who had barely anything, but the love of her family allowed her to have so much. I loved this book!

“I don’t want your yesterday.
And would never expect your tomorrow.
But if we can have today, I will show you what tastes like.
And maybe, just maybe, we’ll forget about all our sorrows.”

I will finish my review with this. This book was everything I had hoped it would be and more, it allowed for me to feel emotions for the characters such as grief, heartache, humor and more. If you have yet to read Midnight Blue, then go do so now. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! ❤



Nat’s words came back and haunted me like a bad haircut from the eighties. An irrational need to check the goods took over me. It wasn’t like he minded. According to the rumors, his dick had seen more cameras than Kendall Jenner. Slowly—so painfully slowly—my eyes drifted down his sinewy body. I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Whatever I had in mind, though, didn’t come close to the real thing. Thick, long but not atrocious. With thin veins running through its length.

“Nice view?” he groaned, tucking his junk back into his briefs. His profile was glorious. Strong jaw, pouty lips, eyes like sex…

My eyes snapped up when I realized he was talking to me. “I wasn’t…”

“Looking? Yes, you were. Next time take a picture. It lasts longer.” He rolled his zipper upward and flushed the toilet with the toe of his boot. He turned around and squirted soap into his palm, washing his hands almost violently—rubbing between each finger and scratching his knuckles like he wanted to shed his own skin. When he was done, he looked around for a towel.

I cleared my throat, scrambling to regain my wits. “Longer than the glimpse or longer than your performance?”

Casually—so unbearably casually—he wiped his wet hands over my purple dress. I gasped, moving sideways. It looked like he was about to open the door and get out, but before I had the chance to yell at him for using me as a human towel, he slammed me against the wall, bracing both his arms above my head and pinning me to my spot. I let out a shriek of surprise at the sudden proximity.

Alex Winslow is touching me. Willingly, my surprisingly pitiful brain squealed.

Heat rolled off his body, making my back arch and my breath catch in my throat.

“Let’s make one thing clear—I could fuck you to a point of numbness without even breaking a sweat if I wanted to. Now, careful, New Girl. If you don’t keep your distance from me, I think I just might.”
