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.


Mary’s 3.75 Star Review

With every book I read by L.J. Shen, the deeper I fall in love with her writing. Midnight Blue is like a perfectly composed ballad. Poetic, pure, and an emotional journey not to be missed. 

Alex Winslow a famous musician needs a sobriety companion. He needs to stay sober during his world tour. Indigo Bellamy has been offered a nice sum of money to keep him in line. What she didn’t expect was the rude, outspoken, and gorgeous rockstar to give her so many feels. He’s got a bit of a chip on his shoulder and doesn’t want to be bothered with his new employee. While spending so much time together traveling to the most beautiful cities in the world Alex begins to care for Indigo in ways he never expected. She’s so much more then her blue hair and handmade dresses. She has a deep soul much like his own. Indigo soon becomes his muse and inspires his music. She has no illusions that Alex would fall in love with her since he’s made himself very clear of his intentions, but some things can not be controlled and as they spend more days together the more she realizes that her heart is destined to be broken.

This book is angsty between Alex’s addictions, and Indigo’s broken life we definitely feel it in our bones. Their love story is unconventional, and unique in it’s own right. The music was inspirational as was Indigo to Alex. It wasn’t a book that was deep all the way through, it had some humorous moments to lighten the load. I enjoyed that as much as the angst. 

I enjoyed reading this one, and didn’t anticipate the twists towards the end, but what good book doesn’t throw you for a loop. If you are a fan of this author this one is a must read.
