Midnight Blue, an all-new sexy standalone from LJ Shen is available NOW!
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.”
Midnight Blue is an amazing and captivating read. This is definitely an one click story. Midnight Blue has romance, drama, a bad boy, a sassy heroine, heartache and a happily ever after. The reader will be pulled into the story, the lives of the characters and all the twists and turns along the way.
Alex Winslow is a troubled rock star. He is lonely and has a drug problem. After his last stint in rehab, he is in need of a babysitter. While on tour, Alex will have a new girl to watch over him. This sexy, tattooed bad boy has a cocky attitude.
Indigo Bellamy is spunky and independent young woman. She takes the job to help support her family. She tries to stay hopeful and positive. Indigo “Indie” knows that she has to last 3 months and deal with Alex’s bad behavior.
The chemistry between Indie and Alex is sizzling hot. I love these two together. They seem to bring out the best in each other. Midnight Blues will have you hooked from the first page to the last. If you love bad boys in need of love, you will fall for Midnight Blue.

I volunteered for this arc. This is my unbiased review.
L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.
Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.
She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.
