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 and is a prequel to Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1). It is recommended, but unnecessary, to read Defy before reading Vicious.
This novella is the prequel to the first book in the Sinners of Saints series, Vicious, but can easily be read as a standalone.
Melody is a teacher at a school for the mega rich and each day she constantly feels out of her depth and is sitting in waiting for the principal to cut her loose. It doesn’t help that she has a class who seem to attend her class but do their own thing. Especially the ‘Hot Holes’. When something happens she finds herself front and central in the sights of Jaime, the eighteen year old son of her boss and also one of the leaders of the hot holes!
Jaime is advanced beyond his eighteen years and his focus is entirely on his teacher. When an ingenious plan unfolds he makes his intentions clear and that intention is to have some fun between the sheets with Melody.
I just floved this book and I could not get enough. I loved the way Jaime was portrayed and he was sin on a sex stick. Usually I'm not one for my book men to be so young but he acted so much older and the way he dominated Melody was hot!
The beginning lead you to believe this was a short book of smut and not much else but oh wow it was so, so much more. The way the story evolves and the relationship transpires had me spell bound. It was a hot, steamy but heart pounding read of a book and I really, really wish Jaime and Melody had gotten a full novel length like Vicious did (loved that book too!)
I cannot recommend this book any higher and is one of my faves so far this year. Amazingly good! Five stars.
