Publisher's Summary

Defy is a smutty, insta-love, insta-lust short novella. Defy is a prequel to Vicious. It is recommended, but unnecessary, to listen to Defy before you listen to Vicious. 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.

    "A HOT LITTLE TREAT TO KICK THE SERIES OFF"

    This is the sort of book I would normally have passed on (YA and a Novella).. but, because I'd just listened to Vicious' book, and been wowed by it, I had to go back to the beginning and hear Jamie's story too.

    So, twenty six year old Teacher Melody bagged herself an eighteen year old toy boy! and not just any toy boy.. oh no, he was one of the School's infamous sexy Four Hotholes - all entitled privileged bad boys, who were cocky handsome troublemakers whose charismatic personalities and rich parents got them out of trouble. However, underneath their reckless bravados there was usually something missing at home that made them that way.. so now this tight Brotherhood partied together, watched each other's backs, did whatever they liked and f everyone else. Jamie should've stayed away from her - he was eighteen, he was in her Literature class and he was the Principle's son - but when did he ever follow rules? he knew what he wanted - Melody.. and he just wasn't going to take "no" for an answer.

    Melody had been a ballerina but an injury when she was 18 had forced her life in a different direction.. one she was hating and spectacularly failing at so, when she accidentally reversed her old car into Jamie's shiny new one, she thought it was yet another disastrous thing in her life. However, Melody was very wrong.. because it was the start of Jamie's plans.. plans that would lead to clandestine meetings, stolen kisses, steamy sex, whispered words of heady needs, rocky roads.. and a love that defied boundaries, defied threats and defied all the odds. And it would go on to become a solid partnership two years later when the boy became a man.. and then six years later when they both became more.

    I really enjoyed this short listen but it did suffer a wee bit by being only a novella.. I wish it had been a much longer book in the series because Melody and Jamie's story deserved more. But wishes don't make it so and it is what it is.. a prequel, a tasty treat and a taste of things to come in the Sinners of Saint series. It's a forbidden love story, a romance that disregarded an eight year age gap and a story that has angst, drama and secrets. It had a storyline that kept my interest, made me think, made me swoon, totally entertained me and ended on a very sweet HEA. Melody owned her sexuality and knew what she wanted.. Jamie - and he was one possessive, self-assured, sexy and determined alpha. Told from Melody's POV except the Epilogue and Tracey Marks did a great job at narration because she does male voices very well.

    Worth a credit? For me, yes it would've been as I'm hooked.. but, at just over $10, I bought it and saved my credit for a more expensive book.

    Story
    "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Wanna Be Right"

    Now this story certainly piqued my interest. Not quite what I expected but oh so delicious. Hotholes! I just don't even know how to describe this whole situation but Jamie and Melanie are just too hot to ignore. I am usually interested in stories around high school romance but this story grabbed me and wouldn't let go. I want more ...

    Tracy Marks did an amazing job capturing the teenage and young adult angst while drawing you in to feel all the emotions. This is definitely a hot and sexy listen.

    Absolutely worth a listen, get any way you can.

    "Didn't want it to end!"

    If you haven't read Vicious, then you have no idea what you are walking into with these Hotholes. This is a complete taboo romance between student and teacher with a kid that is so wealthy and powerful and an ex-ballerina that is just trying to figure out what to do with her life.

    Every part of this novella is gripping and awesome. The only bad thing I can say is that I wanted more! I want more Jamie! But since that isn't possible, I will relish in this short little novella time and time again.

    Tracey Marks is perfect for these sort of roles because she pulls off such a good alpha male voice along with a sweet, innocent. I always know that I will enjoy a book when she is behind it in narration.

    "A Unlikely Love Affair Took Me By Surprise"

    From the very start I knew I would enjoy his audiobook because the narrator is Tracy Marks and i always enjoy her work.
    I was taken by surprise how much I loved this story....about a high school English teacher (26) Mel Green and her just turned 18 year old (Jamie) student's affair.
    Mel is so funny to listen to in her inner dialogue...I laughed out loud a number of times..which immediate endeared her to me. She broke her leg the first year at Juliard and then forced into teaching...not her preference.
    Jamie approaches her in the last three months of his senior year..basically blackmailing her into an affair, he didn't have to work too hard at it. Jamie is one of 4 seniors boys who run the school, play around and are rich ...also he is the principle's son...who happens to hate Mel.
    You need to read or listen to this story to understand that despite the 6 year difference in age, difference in social and monetary situations you come to love this couple.
    Jamie has at least one friend, who is the focus of the next book who is totally unlikable...so his book will not be sweet like this book I'm sure but I this it will be hard not to be drawn into the lives of the FHH (Four Hot Holes)
    This book is very much worth the time and cost!

    "Solid performance, taboo love .... good listen"

    I got hung up on the teacher/student liaison and had to turn off the high school student vs teacher taboo that ran through my brain. When I decided to treat the books as if it were a college level I could begin to enjoy it more. Overall this was a hot read, well written and definitely worth the money.

    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually like books like this (Teacher, Students Affairs) ,but this one grabs you , and won't let go. My only complaint is that this book is too short. Where is book 1 "VICIOUS"?Looked for the novel, and I couldn't find it.
