BOOK REVIEW: Midnight Blue by L.J. Shen




BOOK SYNOPSIS

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 rockstar.
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.

MY THOUGHTS

STORY LINE: 4/5

MIDNIGHT BLUE is a beautifully written story about fighting demons, taking control of your own destiny, and forging a new path. It is filled with love and devastation, sin and forgiveness, and everything that makes your heart beat loud and fast in between.

Honestly, it made every book I've read recently seem like trash in comparison. L.J. Shen never lets me down.

QUOTE WORTHY

"Everybody wants to be a rock star. It's the closest thing to being a god, but what people often forget is that God has a hectic job. God creates. God is worshiped. God is expected to answer, to deliver, to reassure. And when God is sent to earth to deal with humans? Well, God is bound to disappoint."

"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."
