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.
Excerpt: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.”

Trying to come up with the words for this book. I have had at least a half dozen LJ Shen books on my TBR but never got around to pulling the trigger on them but I'm so very happy I started with this book. January was a heavy Rocker month in my reading schedule lol and I thought for sure, this would be another usual, good but not great rock star story. I was very happily mistaken. Alex is my favorite kind of rock star, so very broken and nothing brings him true joy any more. Was he broken by a past relationship going sour? Family and friends just using him and causing him pain? True betrayal? How about all of it. Drugs and alcohol are the only things he seems to have passion for anymore and once that is taken away, he seems to be free-floating, unable to write music, unwilling to move past "the past". He is a bitter, broken, beautiful and talented man who just needs a muse, not a babysitter. But a babysitter is what he must contend with. Indie is also broken but for very different reasons. She is different but she knows what she must do in order to save her family. Does she have the strength to put up with this horribly broken man or will she give up? LJ Shen writes absolutely beautifully. It was a joy to read her words and to find the humor in what she was trying to convey with them. I absolutely cannot wait to read MORE LJ Shen words. She has completely captivated me with this story and brought me on a roller-coaster ride that had me clenching both my teeth and thighs with pain and desire.
