Rockstar

From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new, standalone, contemporary romance.

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.”
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.

Review

I’m finding lately that I am more drawn to stories that build up slowly – complex characters that have hidden depths and unravel organically as the story progresses, emotions that creep up on you, plotlines that are unpredictable and raw and sometimes uncomfortable. All these elements, along with poetically written prose and a deep sense of emotion is what makes a book one that I will remember out of all the thousands of books that I have read – Midnight Blue is one that I won’t forget.

Alex, a broken and angry super famous rock star from Watford in England is the hero in this story, and I promise you won’t fall in love with him straight away, but he will seep into your veins and make you love him, just like he did to our heroine.

Indigo is a giver, she is equally as broken but she deals with her heartbreak by helping others and this is how she ends up with the job of ‘sobriety buddy’ to the Rock God in question, she needs the money to help her family and she is willing to put up with her mean and moody boss.

This story felt real, there was a lot of emotion and pain, but also a lot of humour – I loved Alex’s banter, it was very ‘British’ and I completely connected with him as a character. Indie was the kind of girl who you can’t help but love, and also empathise with her unwanted pull towards the bad guy.

If I was being picky, the ending was kinda rushed, but I don’t care, I absolutely loved all of the feelings that this book evoked, and I would 100% read this again.
