    I am in love with Alex Winslow! He has stolen my heart and imprinted on my romance loving soul.

    We all know L.J. Shen writes some of the best alphas and assholes out there. It’s even in her motto…bringing alphas to their knees. However, with Midnight Blue she surpasses ALL expectations. The writing is AMAZING, the characters are complex, and the action is entertaining. The drama and angst are definitely ramped up in this one. Gird your loins, folks! This world tour will leave you panting for more!

    After my first introduction to Alex, I was in AWE. The complexity of his character paired with his initial feelings toward Indie set up a story that I knew would be entertaining to watch. The chemistry between the two of them is explosive.

    And trust me, they do not disappoint!

    But here’s what I absolutely loved—The writing! You weren’t expecting that, were you? Hands down, this is LJ’s best writing to date! It’s emotive and evocative of the flutters you get in your belly when you fall in love. I felt all the feels. There are two chapters, in particular, that almost brought me to my knees (see what I did there?) when I read them. I felt everything the characters were feeling. My heart broke and stitched together so many times while reading it. Seriously amazing writing, peeps.

    And then there are the characters. Alex and Indie are both flawed, but true fighters. You want to know what makes them tick and you want to root for them to be better and do better. It also doesn’t hurt that Alex is a filthy mouthed sex god either. I’m always down for that!!

    The secondary characters are interesting. I really enjoyed the story within the story. Which brings me to my last point.

    The plot. All I’ll say is that you think you know what’s going to happen, but you don’t! Hahahahaha

    Another fantastic read from an amazing author! I highly recommend Midnight Blue. #OneClick this sexy mofo is soon as you possibly can!

    That’s all I can think of now that I’ve reached the end of this story. Honestly, I’m just grateful that I came out of this in one piece. While reading this book, it felt like Leigh essentially ripped my heart out, juggled it, pricked it with some pins, kicked it around for shits and giggles, took it out to the range for target practice, made it into roadkill, and dunked that bad boy right back in my chest.

    - Indie

    was an angsty, sexy, out-of control tale of the stereotypical rocker, his journey to rock bottom, and his climb back to the top. LJ Shen sure knows how to create a-hole heroes and yet she always finds a way to redeem them. I couldn’t help but fall for the angry, long-suffering, addicted Alex right along with Indie.

    - Indie

    You know what I loved about this book, aside from the music, the pseudo-romance, the laughs, Indie’s quirkiness, Alex’s general devil-may-care, the way Indie loved to talk to her heart, Tania, the drama, and the overall tug on my emotions? I loved how the author gave us something that wasn’t your regular run-of-the-mill happy story. The characters worked hard for their happy. There were no rainbows, unicorns, or cute little puppies here. She gave us characters that hurt. Not only themselves but each other. It’s true that it’s easier to hurt those that you love. And she showed us every bit of it. Whether it was from Alex and Indie’s first meeting,

    To the banter between all of the characters. To the dynamic of Indie’s family. To Alex constantly trying to get into Indie’s pants. To Indie constantly deterring him from getting into said pants. To Alex’s hot and cold behavior. Alex’s battle with addiction. Alex’s ridiculous and delusional thirst for vengeance. His thoughtless words and how they could potentially destroy Indie. And then to his grovelling.

    Whatever I was looking for in this book, I found!

    There was a lot to like in this book. It was very different from what I’ve come to expect from this author, but no less amazing. Although the journey was painful, it had moments of humor and comradery to give it a good balance. And the love, y’all. So much love. All different types of love were found within the pages. And that love wasn’t easy either, but it was real, even when it was ugly.

    So after all these words, I’ll leave you with this -

    Get caught up in your feelings, try to sing along to the music (even though we don’t know the melody), and fall in love with the writing. These characters will grip your heart, I’m telling you. Take another look at the cover, heed my words, and one-click this dirty bad boy today!!

    I loved this book so much!! Its 2:00am and I have to wake up in 5 hours but I couldn’t stop reading. I know I always say this but I think this is my favorite L.J. Shen book to date.

    I am in love with Alex Winslow. There I said it. I fell in love with a hot, foul-mouthed jerk. Alex is a tormented hero and I am a sucker for those. He's a brilliant musician dealing with fame, addiction and many demons. He has an awful family and I understand why he is the way he is. He's in pain and needs someone that shows him the lighter, warmer side of life. That's were Indie comes in. She's such an amazing h, with her blue hair and quirky dresses. She's been through so much pain too, but still loves life and sees the good in everyone. Alex and Indie are so perfect for each other I was rooting for them from the start. Alex has a tender, caring side that only comes out with Indie, and I enjoyed seeing those moments between them. Their chemistry was off the charts too! Alex is one sexy jerk. He exuded sex appeal and melted not only my heart but my panties.

    This book was not only about a rock star but about family, loss, forgiveness, and finding your way in life. It was a reminder that we all have our demons but love conquers all. Another masterpiece by L.J. Shen. I can now say with certainty that she's one of my favorite authors ever! I will read anything that she writes (which I hope are many, many books)

    If you can't tell by now, I highly recommend this book to everyone! This is going straight to my favorites of 2018. What a great way to start the year!

    I'm telling you, I inhaled

    I couldn't take a breath until it was done. Angsty, steamy, turbulent, gritty, beautiful, my heart was so full of feels at the end of it! L.J. Shen nailed this. If you liked

    by SC Stephens,

    by Samantha Towle, you’ll DEVOUR

    ! It’s a rip your heart out and put it back together kind of read. Just brimming with heart and soul. Exquisitely written. I feel ruined by it. RUINED! I had to take a minute to collect my thoughts before I could even process reviewing.

    Shen is a talented author. Her writing is so clean, so powerful, and her characters explode off the page with pure personality. I swear, I feel as if her books have an actual pulse. They are visceral, palpable, real and raw, and full of everything I need and want in a romance. I'm a huge fan of her as a writer, and I really felt like

    was her best work to date. A tumultuous love story that held nothing back, that stripped addiction and heartache to it's bones, showing what it looks like in it's rawest form, but at the same time proving just how powerful and healing true love can be. It's brilliant.

    Rockstar Alex Winslow is a ticking time bomb. Fresh off rehab and needing to go on a world tour, his friends and managers know that it's just a matter of time before he implodes again. So they decide to hire a nanny (or hanny, hot - nanny as Alex calls it, lmao) to watch over him.

    Insert Indigo Bellamy here.

    Indie is a quirky introvert who is in desperate need of money. She lives with her brother, his wife, and kid, and life has gotten messy. With a brother that's quickly becoming an addict and a nephew who needs medical work on his ears, they are barely making it. So Indie gets a job watching over Alex. And

    The two don't hit it off at first. Alex is a bitter asshole who is not pleased with being babysat and pledges to make Indie's life hell. But Indie needs this job, and she's not a push over. She meets Alex head to head in a battle of wills that is downright heart stopping.

    Alex and Indie are a couple that will make you burn. They will make you hurt. The angst is legit, you guys, so gut-wrenching, but so incredibly delicious too. There is so much baggage that each of these characters carries. I'm reluctant to say too much because I want you to have the same reading experience I had. I went in knowing only that it was a rockstar read, and I came out completely breathless and emotionally hungover.

    And I gotta say, I love these kinds of books! The ones that make you feel ALIVE. Like you are living the romance right before your eyes. The kind where you actually become apart of the story. Where you feel like you are in every scene, feeling every moment, saying every line. THIS IS THAT BOOK. You become apart of it and at the end it steals a piece of your heart.

    Overall, I highly recommend Midnight Blue. It's an absolutely gem. Everything and then some. My FIRST 5 star read of 2018! And an unforgettable one at that.

    ** I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I swooned, I definitely swooned over this one, and yes, I’m still swooning over yet another drool worthy rockstar. This book is definitely a book that literally takes hold of you and doesn’t let you go until the very end. I will say this, my heart, oh my aching heart is trying to slow down its beats still. The ups and downs, the highs and lows, the slaps and punches, it literally had me smiling, laughing, crying, and begging all at once.

The ups and downs, the highs and lows, the slaps and punches, it literally had me smiling, laughing, crying, and begging all at once.

    I’ve tried to sit and think how exactly to put what this book is into words with out giving anything about this story away, it’s honestly hard. To describe what Alex Winslow is, hmmmmm, impossible. Indigo Bellamy is even harder. What I can say is these two are absolutely 100% perfect for each other, in every way. Good ways and bad ways you can’t make it work any better. With saying that, the writing is simply astounding to make it that good.

    And just because, I googled what rockstar means to see if it pulled up Alex Winslow, it dang near implied him

    💫 someone who fucks all night beyond belief

    💫 The quality of being impressively fashionable or attractive

    💫 a talented person

    Sooooooo, You want a Rock Star, you better definitely pick this one up.

    is an enemies to lovers romance between an ultimate bad boy British rocker and a feisty and eclectic American girl. The blurb of this book is what enticed me to want to read it. I have a thing for British book boyfriends and the cherry on top was that he was a Rock God as well. I wasn’t expecting this to be so far from a swoony romance. Alex and Indie’s love story was dark and tumultuous and Alex was the epitome of an over-indulgent douchebag! It was very hard to even like his character. I tried but he was just a bit too prickly for me. Indie was the more likable character out of the two.

    Indigo Bellamy has been living with her older brother, sister-in-law, and baby nephew for the past couple of years. Her parents were killed by a hit and run driver. Her brother, who had a promising pro football career ahead of him, dropped out of college in order to take care of her. Things have been pretty dismal for her family lately. Indie’s brother is jobless and has turned to drinking. His bitterness over their parent's death is slowly tearing their family apart. Indie is desperate to find a job that will pay her enough money to help her brother and his family. She answers an ad in the paper for an undisclosed celebrity that is in need of a special personal assistant. Turns out the celebrity is none other than Alex Winslow, one of her favorite musicians. He’s about to start a world tour and the music production company wants him to stay clean and deliver a highly successful tour or he'll be sued for millions. Indie’s job would entail being his personal babysitter. Her sole purpose is to ensure he doesn’t drink or do drugs.

    Alex has scared off several “babysitters” so far and he goes above and beyond at being cruel and rude towards Indie in order to scare her off as well. But he’s met his match because she’s determined to finish the job in order to get the $300,000 paycheck that is coming to her after her three months are up. Her family needs this money desperately and she’s not about to let a spoiled and self-absorbed idiot stop her from fulfilling her duties.

    After many failed attempts at running Indie off, Alex starts to see there’s so much more to the feisty little woman with blue hair and eclectic fashion sense. She starts to become his muse and during the many nights they spend together in the hallway between their hotel rooms, the lyrics are pouring out of Alex at warp speed that he can hardly get them down on paper fast enough.

    During this time Alex is also constantly throwing out sexual innuendos towards Indie. He’s relentless in his pursuit but everyone also knows, including Indie, that he’s still crazy in love with his ex and that even though she’s engaged to another man, he is planning to win her back. Alex makes no promises of love and Indie knows that if she goes down this road with him, there isn’t any way that her heart will not belong to him. When Alex is finally able to seduce Indie the sex is crazed, rough, and far from romantic. I thought that Indie deserved more because she wasn’t anything like the random women Alex used in the past. While it seemed that he was using her to pass the time with until he could get his ex back, it was hard to deny that something significant was building between them.

    A crazy twist is thrown into the plot and at first, it seemed so random. I thought it was a bad move by the author to do this but as everything unfolds it becomes clear that nothing is random in this story and that it was pivotal for the story’s and character development.

    Here are my overall ratings on the book:

    is a standalone romance novel by L.J. Shen. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’. In this we meet 'Alex Winslow' & 'Indigo Bellamy'.

    Knowing that L.J. Shen was bringing us a rocker book all us stalker whores jumped on the band wagon and did what we’re not shameless to admit we begged on crawled knees to get our grubby little hands on this, this was one of my most highly anticipated January reads.

    In the

    we read that twenty-seven year old British rockstar Alex Winslow (the twelve time Grammy award winner) had gone off the rails yet again with another one of his famous meltdowns, busted for DUI and possession of drugs has him spending a stint in jail then rehab which had his agent going into a tailspin and hiring another nanny to keep him in line.

    Six Months Later

    This is where twenty-one year old Indigo (aka Indi) comes into the story, she's hired to shadow his every step to make sure he doesn't go off the wagon again. Indigo has the world on her shoulders, both her and her brother were dealt a rough hand when they were orphaned at such a young age when both parents were ripped out of their lives tragically. She's living with her brother and his young family in cramped, run down quarters with a brother going down a slippery slope of alcoholism. So when the perfect job literally lands in her lap who is she to turn it down. It could change their lives forever. Three months on the road with a rock god.

    Alex doesn't make life easy for Indi, he wants her gone. He's rude, he's arrogant, but oh so slowly Indi breaks down his walls and crawls under his skin.

    What I loved the most about Indi's character was her realness, she was sweet but tough, she gave as good as she got, she was just like you or I, her one passion was making her own clothing, and she never worshipped the ground Alex walked on which endeared me to her so much.

    I’m in the minority when it comes to this book, it’s that clique it’s not the book or the author it’s me saying and this rings more true when it came to reading this book than ever before because I’m sitting amongst a wide sea of 5 star ratings, before I noticed that there were other genres out there other than rocker, rock star books were all I read, I loved the bad boy persona, the drugs, the booze, the endless out of control parties, the sex, the cheating, all things taboo I associated with our bad boy rock stars.

    So jumping into ‘Midnight Blue’ that’s what I had high hopes of reading take away the full out rocker expectation and instead I’m left with a sizzling sweet romance that brought all the tingles and feels and this was definitely delivered in bucket fulls.

    A few chapters away from the end and that’s where it came into its own for me, that whole rocker experience I was waiting for certainly came.
