My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
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.
After reading and falling in love Vicious, I just had to meet Jaime! Defy was seriously perfect. This may have been a novella, but don’t let the length turn you away. It had some serious steam, and was HOT in its entirety!
“Ballet has always come first. Before men and before me. For a while, I’d actually thought it was enough. Until it wasn’t.”
I love reading strong heroines, and that’s exactly what Melody was. She had some heartbreaking moments in her past. She was a little lost at first, but I loved getting to experience her taking back control, and finding passion in her life again.
“Next time you bend over like this, Ms. G, make sure I’m not behind you, or this’ll end up on National Geographic: ‘When Predators Strike.”
And Jaime—he was possessive, but totally transparent when it came to his feelings. I would catch myself forgetting he was eighteen–he seemed so mature for his age. The way he acted, talked, both casually and to Melody. He also had such a huge influence on the people in his life. I LOVED him!
“Yes, Mel. That’s exactly why I left without explaining. Because I think about you before I think about myself. Always remember that, Little Ballerina. Always.”
Defy was one of the best student/teacher relationships I’ve read. Melody and Jaime’s chemistry was off the charts–hot, raw, and totally forbidden. I only wish their story was a little longer—I needed MORE of Jaime! I seriously love these HotHoles, and I can’t wait to fall in love with the next one in this series!
