Goodreads Summary:
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.


You all know how I am about forbidden love, so this was right up my alley. I read Vicious first and then this one, but they can be read any order. If you do read Vicious first, you will know how this one ends kinda.

Defy is the story of Jamie Followhill, the son of the school principal and Melody Greene, a 26 year old ex-ballerina who is now a English Lit teacher.She is close to getting fired and ends of hitting the principal’s car. Jamie jumps in and saves the day, making it seem to be his fault.

This romance is raw and intense and the fact that it is forbidden makes it even better.You will forget Jamie is only 19 because he seems so mature.

It is kinda of a small book but don’t let that stop you, it doesn’t seem rushed. With the wonderful writing that is within L.J. Shen books, you will love it! You wont want it to end.
