Author: L.J Shen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: February 3, 2017


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. 

Defy is a smutty, insta-love, insta-lust short novella. Defy is a prequel to Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1). It is recommended, but unnecessary, to read Defy before reading Vicious.

“It was sexy and steamy and everything I’ve come to expect from this author.” – Ariana, Steamy Reads Blog.

“Holy Heck this was Hot!! If I wasn’t hooked on this series before I sure am now!! These boys just get dirtier, hotter, off the rails panty wetting hot!!” – Kitty Katz Crazy About Books.

Forbidden romance has never been so well done! And this is a novella!” – Stephanie, Tied Up In Romance.



5 hot and forbidden stars

It has not been that long since i discovered LJ Shen’s book and Vicious was one of my first reads of 2017 and an absolute 5 stars from me. When I found out that Defy was Jamie’s story i absolutely couldn’t wait to read this. You meet him in Vicious as one of the infamous four Hotholes – Jamie is the son of the principle of All Saints High and the quieter one of the bunch and you know what they say about the quiet ones!!!!

Melody is the English Lit teacher at the school. She doesn’t really like teaching and came to it by default after her dream to be a ballet dancer was ruined by an accident. A collision with Jamie’s car in the school car park has him pretty much blackmailing her to accept his advances and here starts what is supposed to be a hot and steamy affair lasting only till school ends, that could not only ruin her career but her whole life. This became so much more for both of them.

If you love a student/teacher forbidden romance then you are going to absolutely love this book as did I. Its one hot little gem, a quick, sexy read that will have you glued to the pages. There’s plenty of sneaking around, hot steamy moments and some drama thrown in. A great introduction to the Sinners of Saint series but even if you have read Vicious first, like me, you are still going to love this book.

L.J. Shen resides in sunny California with her husband, son, chubby cat and wild, wild dreams.

Her passion is to write badass stories, sushi, UFC and her awesome family and friends (not in this order, though. Obviously, sushi comes before writing. Oh, and also the family part.)

She spend the first half of her twenties traveling the world and is now paying all the fun with extra shifts in front of her MacBook. Feel free to contact her on her Facebook page. She loves to hear from her readers.
