Midnight Blue
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.

I have too many feelings and all of them involve severe cursing.

If you think you are ready for Alex Winslow I’d like to inform you that you are grossly mistaken. I thought I was ready. Now, here I am rocking back and forth in my corner thinking why the fuck would I think I was equipped to handle the enigma that is Alex FUCKING Winslow.

I ADORERESPECTADMIRELOVE Indie! I can’t even tell how how much I love her because there are no proper words. She is the kind of female leads I’ve always looked up to. She’s a strong, ball-busting no shit taker badass boss bitch you can probably take over the entire World if she felt like it. At the same time, she is a broken girl doing everything in her might to save her family. We need more people like Indie in our lives. I am just so much in love with her. Did I say that already?!?

Alex oh my poor broken beautiful sweet devil!! *heart eyes* I admit I didn’t like his “personality” in the first chapter yet I knew I was going to fall for this man. I wanted to claw his face while making out with him. It’s insane because this man inspired a hundred thousand different emotions in me while I was reading this story. He looks like he might be the most shallow bastard in the whole of Universe but you bet your ass his words are deeper than you could ever imagine. SOMEONE MAKE THIS MAN REAL SO I COULD HUG HIS ASS!!!

Everytime L.J. Shen comes out with a story, I know it to my bones that it’ll effect my life in ways I’d never be able to fathom. This story wasn’t any different. I am in love with every word this woman writes. GOD BLESS SHEN! *ugly crying*

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.”

THE END ZONE by L.J. Shen 

Jolie Louis knows her love for her best friend Sage Poirier is and always has been unrequited. The message is pretty clear when your bff whores around through the entire campus. She has made her peace with is fact and tries hard everyday to move on.

But apparently Sage has other plans. Suddenly, he is flirting with her all day everyday.

When already the lines between love and friendship have been blurred for Jolie, can she trust Sage with her heart?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jolie!! That girl takes no prisoners and refuses to let anyone trample over her. She was such a strong character and honestly I want her to be my bff. Damn, I wish this book was longer so I could love this girl more. *heart eyes*

Sage, oh you filthy amazing Adonis!!! His dirty talk was so on point, I felt it in my core. GOD he is just so so good.

This was a fast paced insta love story. It was funny, quirky, fun and super fucking sexy.

I AM IN LOVE!!!

Mandi Beck:

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.

A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

Emma Scott:

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn:

A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Kate Stewart lives in Charleston, S.C. with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. A native of Dallas, Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring it her creative muse. Kate pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a reader. A lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.

She loves stories with alpha males, sassy heroines, hot sex and happily ever afters. She is a bit of a genre hopper in both her reading and her writing. So far she’s written books in several romance sub-genres including new adult, contemporary, paranormal and romantic suspense.

She is the mother of two wonderful sons who inspired her to chase her dream of being an author. She wants them to learn from her that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

Rosie

They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They’re right.

He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister’s ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.

In a world where everything is dull, she shines like fucking Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I fucking dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.

And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.

ruckus.jpg

4.5 RUCKUS Stars!!!!!!!

Rosie’s life has numbered days so she hast sorted herself accordingly. She doesn’t say it but every life decision is based on the fact that her life is going to end shortly. She pretends to be uncaring, unfeeling and brave but inside she feels too much, cares too much and is scared. And the person that scares her witless is Dean Cole, her first and only love. She can’t afford to be part of his games but maybe he’s playing for keeps?

description

Dean Cole’s entire life tilts on the axis that is Rosie LeBlanc. She obliterated all purpose in his life except of course herself. He knows her, sees her and feels her. He made the mistake of letting her go once but now he is determined to make her see him and then no one else. Dean is never one to back down and Rosie is about to put in front of him the great challenge of his life.

description

I can’t even with this story,y’all! I mean I knew it was going to hurt but BUT I WASN’T PREPARED. I get so emotional when it comes to these HotHoles, it feels like these are my kids. It might seem ridiculous but swear I am too invested to back out and I really don’t want to.

DEAN fricking COLE needs to be on posters on my darn walls!!!!!!! I LOVED the way he flirted with Rosie. His cheesy one-liners made me roar with laughter and also shake my head cause hello he’s a nerd. I related to Dean so much because of his emotional turmoil. I just AHHHH I want to hug him and pet him and make him feel better. Like I said TOO INVESTED!!

Rosie oh my sweet summer child! I just wanted to help her and even though she frustrated me sometimes I really adore her for being such a real and relatable character. The amount of courage she had, I think others would have broken down way before. We need more strong characters like her.

L.J. Shen is a Goddess!!!!! I am so obsessed with her writings and her characters. She just creates incredible stories with amazing characters that you can’t help but love. I’m never getting enough of her stories. EVER!
