Review: Defy by L.J. Shen

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.

After having her dreams shattered Melody takes a job teaching a bunch of privileged spoiled kids. This isn't what she wants to do but she has no choice and is going with the flow. I really liked Melody because she was sassy and didn't play by high society's rules and expectations. 

Jaime is one of the HotHoles but he's more reserved. People think they have him all figured out but he's not what everyone thinks he is. There's a lot more when it comes to Jaime and he has a huge caring heart. I loved the stand up guy Jaime became as the story unfolds. 

“And you feel like a woman worthy of a fight, Ms. Greene.”

“Because I think about you before I think about myself. Always remember that, Little Ballerina. Always.”

I loved the how you could feel the sexual tension oozing off the pages between Melody and Jaime. Their connection and banter eventually developed as the story progressed and it was everything!! This isn't just an insta love story. You get invested and fall in love with the characters and despite the fact that their relationship is forbidden, you can't help but want them to defy all odds and be together. 

At first I wasn't sure if I would like the book because it was billed as an insta lust/love type book but it was so well done!! Shen has such a way with words.This is the second book that I've read by her and I was completely sucked in and couldn't stop until I was finished with the book. This series has become one of my favorites and I can't wait for Ruckus.
