*Blog Tour and Review* Defy by L. J. Shen

Title: Defy
Series: Sinners of Saints #0.5
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.

Really… I don’t even know where to start with this book, people. It might just be one of the hottest books Ive ever read and that is saying something because I read A LOT.  What makes it so hot, you ask?  Several things.  Is it taboo?  A little.  I mean, its about a student and a teacher – but the student is 18 years old so its not crossing the legality line.  Morally? yes, but not legally (at least not in my state).  Is the sex hot?  OMFG.. YESSS.  LJ Shen, WHOA.  This was my first experience with her writing and let me just say this to her directly… TAKE MY MONEY… TAKE ALL OF IT NOW!! *throws wads of bills at author*

But in all seriousness, what made this novella absolutely impossible for me to put down was the WAY in which it was written.  And its very hard to explain.  LJ Shen basically started off the story weaving a tale about a downtrodden ballerina turned teacher and spun it into this ghetto rap, hard core-gang style group of high school boys who even federal agents would be afraid of.  The HotHoles.  Hows that for a name?  I loved it.  I loved absolutely everything about this book from beginning to end.  I mean it when I say I could not put it down, and I didnt.  I read straight through and when I was finished I immediately one clicked Vicious.  My recommendation is that you do the same.

Well thought out and IMO, perfectly executed.  Well done, LJ Shen, well done. 😉
