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.
Once again this brilliant author capture readers with her impressive writing skills! However not only does she capture our attention immediately but also continues to hold it all the way through this book.
Indie is hired to ‘babysit’ a famous rockstar who enjoys partying too much! She has a three month contract to keep him off addictive substances as well as try to get him to behave on his world tour..Alex has other ideas!
I have to admit to chuckling out loud even though much of the humour is sarcastic or cynical..it’s still funny. At time I became so angry with some characters that I found myself clenching my teeth! Then there are the philosophical times when issues were deeper and a whole gambit of emotions hit. The passion is not ‘off the charts’ as it is not the main focus in the story, it is hot but oh so much more.
I literally couldn’t put this fast paced book down, it is totally addictive! Ironic really considering one of the main themes! Fantastic descriptions very clearly help readers to visualise each scene easily and the fact that there are a variety of countries was a great bonus too. I particularly like how every question is answered and neatly tied up leaving you feeling very satisfied.
Do I like Alex? Not initially, even though he is a hunk. Do I feel empathy for him? Yes. Do I like Indigo? Very much, with her sassy, strong genes that seem to build as the story progresses. Do I feel empathy for her? Yes but not as much as I thought I would really.
I totally recommend this to everyone!

LJ Shen certainly knows how to write interesting characters, ones that have depth, heart and lots of emotion. Alex was a rock star on the edge and his newest babysitter Indie is unlike any woman he’s ever known, she is headstrong, sassy and sweet… they have a love/hate relationship which provides endless entertainment throughout the book as they navigate family, friends and Alex’s fame.

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.”
