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.

 

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.”

My Review:

WOW!!! What a wild read this is!! Absolutely awesome!!

Rock Gods are not usually my thing, but Alex Winslow definitely did things for me!! But its more about the writing and the story – pure poetry in motion!! So powerful, raw and intimate it was like being a fly on the wall watching the scenes take place, I felt like I was literally in the room them. Beautifully complex characters, the story was full of drama and angst, with my emotions running rampant – from laughing at the witty sassy one liners, to pure heartbreak. A world tour with Alex Winslow is not something you will forget in a hurry!!

Alex Winslow is fresh out of rehab for drug and alcohol abuse and he’s due out on a world tour. His management decide he needs a ‘baby sitter’ to keep him out of mischief. Indigo Bellamy is desperate for money to help support her brother, his wife and her nephew – desperate enough to sit the selfish, rude, arrogant but holy-moly sexy as hell Rocker for the next 3 months. She just has to keep her job, keep him sober and not fall for him, easy, right??!

Told from dual POV’s, this is an opposites attract / poles apart love story, both main characters are broken souls but together their chemistry is dynamite and inescapable. The plot has many twists and turns that you don’t expect. But you can expect your heart to be broken, many times, whilst reading this!! An amazing read through and through – 5 Blue Stars!
