From best-selling 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. 100 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.

WOW.. ELEVEN TURBULENT HOURS OF PERFECTION
Every single time I finish a new L.J. Shen book I say “this has got to be her best yet”.. but then she goes and writes another awesome listen.. and once again I repeat my mantra of “blah blah... best yet”. However, this time I’m really really reeeeeally sure this is absolutely her best work to-date and I’m in awe of this seriously gifted author and the tornado of feels her words provoke.
LJS introduces you to her damaged yet emotionally vulnerable hero and heroine who come with emotional baggage.. and you listen with glee and awe as she slowly turns their sparks into flames. their animosity into friendship.. their polar opposite lifestyles into a powerful partnership.. and their ‘end date’ relationship into forever love. She sucks you into a multi-layered plot that you know will end in tears.. but what you’re absolutely not prepared for is the tragic heartbreaking wrench she throws in from nowhere that sends characters reeling. And, as she takes you on a whirlwind worldwide tour with an arrogant a$$hole of a bad-boy anti-hero and his entourage, your heart slowly melts for this sexy English Rock Legend as his feisty tiny blue-haired sobriety ‘babysitter’ brings out a very different side to him as their chemistry solders two hearts.. and two souls together.
I didn’t want to pause or stop listening to the tightly written push ‘n pull plot of two characters who need each other.. but for very different reasons. I didn’t want to stop the angsty barbed banter, the clipped humor and the dickish behaviour as the heated dialogue slowly broke down walls. I didn’t want to stop hearing about the damaged vs the sweet as their rollercoaster relationship clicked, climbed, picked up speed and eventually careened towards impending disaster. I didn’t want to stop the sizzles, the sparks and the flames as their sexual tension finally explodes. I didn’t want to stop the talented dual POV narration as it deliciously brought everything to life. Dirty talk, wicked intentions and casual carefree jibes precede and pave the way for some powerful heartfelt phrases, cherished words, romantic sentiments and passionate promises.
Worth a credit? Well I could go on.. and on.. and on about the many many outstanding virtues of this complex, multi-layered twisted yet beautiful, entertaining, touching and memorable love story.. so YES absolutely 100% creditworthy. Take the journey yourself and listen as a handsome, but bitter, Rock God battles his demons, tries to bed bend and break his sassy yet sweet babysitter and is determined to get his cheating ex back.. but Fate and Destiny have other plans..plans that’ll eventually lead to a beautiful HEA.

So I read/listen more than I care to admit, and lately I just haven’t been impressed. This book was perfect. Perfect narration - I just love these two narrators, and Shen’s story telling continues to impress. I have enjoyed other works, but this, by far evoked more emotion and surprise and I just hated to see the story end.

This rendition of one of my favourite stories, has been a joy to listen to. Our flawed hero is voiced confidently, unrepentently and with absolute brilliance by Shane East. Muffy Newtown always delivers a warm and totally endearing performance, capturing Blue beautifully. The only tiny issue I have is the rendition of British accents ...I promise we do not all speak as if we are members of the royal family and attended Eton..especially if we are from Watford!

Really liked it.
I liked this book. It was a slow starter for me, but once the chemistry between Indi and Alex kicked off, I got sucked in.
Great story which covered sensitive topics.
