Blog Tour ~ 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.

5 stars
I've read every book that LJ Shen has released and every single time I finish one, I'm in awe and so in love with every word. She has a way of pushing my boundaries and making me just a little uncomfortable. Each of her stories elicits such strong emotions out of me and I find myself completely immersed in her characters and their journeys.
Melody Greene is just drifting through life.  Her dream to be a dancer is over so she does what she has to to get by. Biding her time at All Saints High, dispassionate and disinterested, until suddenly, there's something more. Something that wakes her up. I appreciated Mel's sass and strength. She wasn't unaffected by those around her but she didn't let it shape her and break her down.
Jamie Followhill, rich, spoiled, arrogant, and the Principal's son. Jamie and his friends, the HotHoles, can do no wrong at All Saints. Once he sets his sights on something, or someone, there's no stopping him. Even if what he wants is his teacher. I was drawn to him and his contradictions; both assertive yet vulnerable, aggressive yet laid back, cold yet thoughtful. This man stole my heart.
Worlds apart but both missing something, something vital. Their connection, unmistakable and their chemistry, sizzling! Super sexy but also incredibly sweet, I couldn't put it down.
As always, Shen's beautifully crafted story and vivid prose grabbed ahold of me. I was captivated by the excitement and risk of their forbidden relationship. Held captive by what could be, and on the edge of my seat, waiting for the inevitable crash. Shen has cemented herself on the top of my must read list.

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.
