Publisher's Summary

Defy is a smutty, insta-love, insta-lust short novella. Defy is a prequel to Vicious. It is recommended, but unnecessary, to listen to Defy before you listen to Vicious. My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make. I slept with my student, a senior in high school. Multiple times. I had multiple orgasms. In multiple positions. I slept with my student and I enjoyed it. I slept with my student and I'd do it all over again if I could turn back time. My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal's office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me. My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good. Here is why it was totally worth it.

4 excellent stars

This is an excellent novella. I would have liked this to have been a full novel, which I think it could have been. The story was written from a single perspective, so there was the potential for a longer novel if done in the dual pov.

This is a taboo novel, teacher and student romance (although thankfully the student is 18+). Jaime is a really nice solid character - despite some dubious friends and actions, while Melody is the more emotionally fragile, delicate person. They were a well matched couple.

It was fantastic to revisit the world that the author had crafted so well in the first novel. A good addition to the first book in this series. I loved it.

I really enjoyed the narration by Tracey Marks, she definitely brought Melody to life for me.

Great Taboo Story

I still don't like the storyline as it just doesn't sit right with me. Having said this, the writing was good, I loved their love story and I am pleased it ended well.

keep going

ah the main characters really pissed me off to start with i was a bit like of gosh their attitudes are vom! but I kept going and I loved the ending. totally agree this could have been a full novel. love a ranchy romance and even though sometimes love isn't that easy or consistent. love really can be that committed.

This book is hot

Love L.J Shen and this was one of her best books really wish it was longer. I feel like Melody’s and Jamie’s story had so much more left to explore. The best part of this book was the narration. Absolutely fantastic please We need her to narrate more books.
