Release Day Blitz + Review: Midnight Blue by L.J. Shen


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.

I love Ms Shen's heroes. She's masterful at giving you a bad boy that you can't help but fall for. Arrogant, crass and at times, downright dirty. Alex Winslow is her best to date. There, I said it. And I love many of her boys before, but Alex is in a league of his own.

This story sucked me in and I didn't come up for air until the last word. And now, I miss Alex and Indie. This was a phenomenal read and LJ's best, so far!!

My heart is FULL . Reading Midnight Blue was quite the journey. Once again L.J. Shen gives her whole in this book and it shows. I'm so in awe with the woman who first begun with Tyed! I've seen her grow and become the incredible writer and storyteller she is now. Each book she writes is better than the previous one. Each book she writes is different with maybe one common trait, the guy is jerk with a heart.

"Disgusting. Gorgeous. Rude. Sexy. Screwed-up. Witty. Broody. Unbearable. Trouble. Trouble. Trouble. Alex Winslow was all those things and more"

Meet Alex Winslow, Rock God, addict and a total douche to every single person around him. Don't except him to welcome you in his waiting arms because he won't. Don't expect him to go easy on you... you react the wrong way and you've already lost But keep pushing, be real, natural and maybe you'll get a chance.

Meet Indie Belamy, innocent, pure but not one to let someone control her life or tell her what to do. Life is not easy but she never complained. Selfless, she only care for her family and their well-being. Young but already mature, she is one of my fav' heroine LJ wrote about.

“She’s not a war. She’s barely a fucking sport.”“If that’s the case, promise me you’ll play clean. She may have sass, but she’s really young.”“Clean is not in my dictionary.”

I devoured this book as fast as I could. If it wasn't because work kept me busy I would have taken a day off to keep reading. The book has a good amount of angst. Questions were popping into my mind all the time even when I was not reading, I was thinking about the damn book all the time.

Alex was a complex character you might not like at the first Here's the thing with me. When I start a book, I'm in the state of mind where I like all characters for the better or the worse. So Alex might be a complete asshole, I still dig enough to see what was underneath. And you should too because he has a beautiful soul. Under all his cockiness, there's someone broken, someone who needs help even he doesn't want it.

“Alex’s face was like a great book. Every time you looked at it, you found a different something.”

Him and Indie together was maybe not meant to be – but the more they spend time together the more it's obvious they have something to offer to the other. And here's the thing with this book, you feel all the different emotions. All of them Midnight Blue was a success to me because you it felt real, because it felt like I was really watching two people discovering each other and falling deep into what they expected the least, especially for Alex.

“What do you want from me, Alex?” Everything. I want everything, and then all the things you’ve already given away to other people. I want them back, too. ”

This is by far one of the BEST rockstar romance I've ever read! If you love the genre, it should be a no brainer.
