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.


Ahhh! I cannot believe that it has taken me this long to read this book because I have known of LJ Shen for years, but I just haven’t had time to read it until now! I am so freaking glad that I already had it on my kindle ready to FINALLY be read.

LJ Shen is one of those authors that you know right from the beginning that her stories will capture your heart and hold on tight until you reach the very end. This novella was so captivating that I found myself devouring it in a little over an hour because once I started I could not put it down. It seems over the past few months that forbidden romance is the genre my mind keeps gravitating towards…so let me just say that this story is one of the BEST forbidden romance stories I have read!

Defy is Melody and Jamie’s story and it is addictively HOT! My only complaint is that it was WAY TOO SHORT! I wanted more of their story, but at least I have the other HOTHOLES to keep me company now! I cannot wait to fall in love with all of them as I make my way through the series! Amazing novella that I strongly recommend to all LJ Shen fans!
