Midnight Blue by L. J. Shen

“There was a fire to him and it was going to consume him one day.”

Resume: Alex Winslow is a British rock star that comes from a shattered family and is recovering from drinking and drugs while trying to save his group’s career. Indigo, or better known as Indie, needs money to help her family so she accepts be Alex’s babysitter. It seems easy. Be there and make sure Alex stays away from his addictions and keep him clean. But it isn’t. With time, Indie becomes Alex’s muse and he needs her as people needs air to breathe. So he consumes her, takes her body, her heart, her sould and her spirit with him.

“See, we’re all vases. And you’re the one scattered on the floor, shattered beyond repair. So I’ll let someone else pick you up. It’s really that simple. Have fun with your temporary glue.”

I really liked this book. Alex is so selfish and sometimes cold and mean but he doesn’t deny it. Indie is sad and broken but stays strong. I love how the author created these characters and made them grow as the pages passes. The dual point of view was also is a bonus, specially to understand how Alex’s mind is a hurricane, confused and strong. The only thing I didn’t appreciate much was the romance’s pace. We went from him denying liking her to admit he likes her. Like that, out of nowhere. I wished the author would give them more time to build his feelings. He spends the book looking for revenge and hating to forget the revenge and hate so quick.

Overall, it is a good book with a good story and pace and with good secondary characters (deep down I was hoping it wouldn’t end the way it did so we could get books for the other carachters). The plot twist was so good, I wasn’t expecting it. In the end, their romance was poetry, warm and devastating.
