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, an all-new sexy standalone from LJ Shen is available NOW!

I only recently discovered L.J. Shen and I really do not know what rock I have been hiding under. She is an amazing writer that gives us compelling characters and stories! In Midnight Blue we get the British rock star and the woman who is supposed to babysit hit. Nothing can go wrong, right?

Alex Winslow is set to go on a world tour, but is also just recently out of rehab and needs to be on his best behavior. Enter assistant Indigo (Indie) Bellamy, who was hired to babysit him. He is a complicated hero working to overcome his demons. He is a total alpha, gorgeous and set on not needing Indie in his life.

Indie’s life has not been an easy one, but she is a fighter. When an opportunity is offered to her that may change her life, she jumps at the chance. I loved Indie, in some ways she was innocent and sweet, but she was also strong and determined.

Alex does not need a babysitter, or so he believes. Indie is determined to do her job. Somehow these opposites find a way to connect. I loved their banter! And I loved it even more that Indie was able to stand up for herself when others fell at his feet. Their chemistry was undeniable, even as the fought it!

Midnight Blue was full of angst and real and raw issues faced by many. Alex was honest and real to his core and broke my heart. Indie was strong, feisty and a fighter. They were so good together and their story consumed me. The writing was exceptional and the characters captivating. L.J. Shen has quickly become a must-read author for me.

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.”
