Midnight Blue by LJ Shen
My rating: 6 out of 5 stars
Before I start I want to make it abundantly clear that I could only choose 5 stars for this review but actually NO AMOUNT of stars could ever rate this book.. I’ve sat on this review for days now. Not because I didn’t know what to say, it was because I feared I’d say to much. Midnight Blue is not one of those books that you can read and easily sum up. The book it’s self has SO MANY hidden layers and depths that even attempting to fully convey everything I loved so much about this book will be impossible.
If you don’t know LJ Shen, have never picked up one of her books and fallen deep into her stories, then I beg of you, please do so. You cannot go wrong with any book of hers that you read but something about Midnight Blue made an already incredible author a truly PHENOMENAL author. LJ Shen has this way of RUINING you with her words but it’s a good kind of ruin. A beautiful burn shall we say? Seriously she’s an author who’s books I could ONLY EVER read and I would never tire of them.
From the very start Midnight Blue is a consuming, complex novel that burrows itself deep into the heart and soul and BURNS, the most incredible, beautiful burn. The angst and feeling and emotion and depth of this book is out of this world. How LJ Shen wrote this book how she did is beyond me. There is intensity and passion and power, darkness, anger and pain, lust, love and beauty. It just about covers every emotion, every feeling.
Alex and Indie are a couple that are forever unforgettable. There will NEVER be a couple like these ever again. I cannot even begin to tell you how epic they are, together AND individually. Together they are DYNAMITE. Individually they are the spark, the initial fire, the inevitable burn. Together they got under my skin, flowed through my blood. Individually they invaded my heart, head and soul, tattooing themselves on me forever. I loved them, their story, their amazing highs and devastating lows. Following the journey of a couple like Alex & Indie has never been so captivating.
I honestly could say more, spill more about what makes this book good, great in fact. I could talk forever, the book hangover after Midnight Blue is REAL. The only problem with me talking too much is that YOU, the person reading this now learns too much about the book. I went into Midnight Blue with the blurb and the knowledge that a few book friends had read it and loved it. I really want the same for YOU. THIS book is better devoured with no other knowledge. But if you must know something about this book know this…
This book IS phenomenal.
This book WILL ruin you.
This book is LJ Shen’s BEST.
BEST storyline, BEST characters, BEST love, BEST EVERYTHING! And that’s coming from me who had Scandalous as my FAVE book of all time. Now Midnight Blue is in that position and let me tell you it’s going to take A LOT for another book to even get close to this one.
From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new, standalone, contemporary romance.
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.
