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. 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.
All true meanings are hidden. Life is full of secrets, and narrow-minded people, and sugar-coated, empty conversations that hold no weight. What’s real is what’s inside us. What’s important is what we feel.”
I have been sitting here for 20 minutes trying to figure out how to write a review. I’m still at a loss. I’m like Alex trying to write his songs, except it’s not drinking or drugs getting in the way. It’s basically the story. It’s just a really different, and very well written story.
It’s an enemies to lovers, lots of angst, mixed with addictions, lack of communication, very sad upbringing on Alex’s part, very sad trama in Indie’s family, her family has it’s problems. JUST SO MUCH GOING ON!!! And what I just wrote barely touches on the depth of it all! L.J. Shen writes the most beautiful, in-depth characters, who you love to hate and love to love. She’s an absolute genius in writing characters.
I will admit when I first started reading the book it didn’t grab me immediately, but that could have just been my mood. But then it did grab me, and then it really did, and then I was a goner….
A definite 5/5 Star read for me
