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.

Midnight Blue was a unique, sexy, entertaining, and highly addicting standalone contemporary romance, and I absolutely loved it! L.J. Shen once again blew me away with her amazing writing style and the phenomenal storyline and characters she created. Just when I thought she couldn’t top her last release, she did in a huge way. Ms. Shen made me fall head over heels in love with Midnight Blue and every moment of Alex and Indie’s story.

   Alex Winslow and Indigo “Indie” Bellamy were beyond amazing, and I absolutely loved them and their story. I loved their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. Their story was unconventional to say the least, and unexpected at times, but I loved reading every single page from start to finish. I don’t normally gravitate towards rock star romance, and I have only read a few over the years, but I can honestly say that Midnight Blue has been the best one that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. It was different than the novels I usually read, but I loved everything about it and don’t have anything negative to say. I loved reading the book from both Alex and Indie’s POV, and I thoroughly enjoyed all of their banter and interactions with each other. There were plenty of surprising twists and turns that kept things interesting and me on my toes, especially towards the end. I really enjoyed most of the secondary characters as well, and I liked their addition to the story. However, Alex and Indie were the real stars. I loved both of them so much, and even though there were a few up and down/difficult moments between them and several other characters, all of it was completely worth it in the end. L.J. Shen truly did a phenomenal job with this book, and she made me and my heart insanely happy with the conclusion to Alex and Indie’s story. It was perfect for them and exceeded my expectations in every possible way.

   Midnight Blue was a sexy, addictive, unique, and entertaining standalone rock star romance, and will definitely be one of my TOP FAVORITE reads of the year! L.J. Shen knocked it out of the park with this book, and I was so freaking ecstatic with the outcome to Alex and Indie’s story. L.J. Shen has quickly become one of my top favorite contemporary romance authors, and I have dearly loved all of the books I’ve read from her so far. I am dying to read more of her amazing and addicting romances, and I can’t wait to see what she releases next!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.



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.”

L.J. Shen is a USA Today and International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.
