Publisher's Summary

I hated her defiance....

But it made me want her even more.

Her brother was my friend...and my boss. She was off-limits. 

Kassie Fox. 

From the first moment she looked in my direction, I knew she would be mine. 

It's impossible to stay away. 

I'm breaking all the rules...and shattering the golden rule I live by: Never trust a woman. Ever. 

The more she pushes, the more I pull. We're the same. I know what she needs. And I'm about to prove that she can trust one man. Her man. Me.

Will her defiance land her in my bed or out of my life for good?

Dear listener, Defy You is a steamy and emotional brother's-best-friend forbidden romance and is the third book in the Rebel Ink series.

Great Listen!

This is another amazing love story from Tracy Lorraine. This was the perfect age gap, forbidden with a touch of dark romance. I have loved the Rebel Ink series and this is my favorite book so far. Spike is just the perfect male specimen sexy, talented and protective with a heart of gold. Kas is young but she is feisty, independent and sassy. She’s had a rough life and finds herself in some trouble. Spike is there for her and vows to help. They have such explosive chemistry. They find their other half in each other. Now, to convince her brother of that. I loved this audiobook. The voices were great. I could listen to Shane East all day long. I give it five very well deserved stars. You need to listen to this book today!

Great story with excellent narration!

Loved this Forbidden/Bestfriend/Boss's Sister, age gap romance! Kassie is irresistible and just what Spike needed to snap him out of his self-imposed anti-relationship existence. Great story with wonderful narration in DUET!

Ends better than it starts😉

The book gets better, my only complaint is that Cassie is so over the top cliche in the beginning. If it were a movie it would lean to cheesy. But as the story progresses the characters become more realistic and less ridiculous. Maybe that was the authors way of portraying her as young and immature? Anyway- hang in there, the story improves. And it's no punishment listening to Shane East 😍. Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Heat 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Perfection

Tracy Lorrine is a top five favorite author of mine! I absolutely love this series. It's a favorite world that she has created. This book just grabbed my heart and twisted it. The emotions were real. This was well written with a great storyline and wonderful characters. I love a sibling's best friend romance and this had an added age gap trope. Definitely one to read again.

I have now listened to this audiobook and it was excellent! It was narrated by Shane East and Vanessa Edwin. Their performances were perfection. The duet narration was well done and brought this book to life. It was just how I imagined while reading. I'll be listening to this again!

omg so good

this book, No this series is so good. I love it so much, but I got to say, Tracy babe this one by far is the most Intense. damn that poor girl went through hell and back till she found her big brother and her new hunk of a man. lmao I kinda feel bad for Zac through but its so cute. I really can't wait to get my hands on the next book. Hopefully it comes out soon. love and hate the ending. but by the looks of it, its only going to get more Interesting. omg by the look of things Dee's going to have his hands full. he has himself a little spit fire.

Amazing!

This was amazing. I laughed so hard at the back and forth between Spike and Kass. Their banter was incredible and had a big smile on my face. Both narrators did such a great job with bringing the characters to life I could practically feel their emotions and the tension between them. I love when it’s duet style as it makes the story come to life so much more as well.

Love Spike and Kas

Love listening to Shane and Vanessa bring Spike and Kas story to life. I love hearing Shane F**k, there is just something about it when he says it that is hot.

This is Kas Zach's half sister and Spike's story. Another Rebel Ink tattooist has met his match. This picks up from the last book and we find out why Kas was working at the strip club. Loved this story we get to see Kas's life and find out about Spike's past. This was hot, angsty story with action. Kas is a feisty little spitfire and I enjoyed the banter between these two as Kas keeps defying Spike and his commanding ways. I love this series and look forward to reading the next two books in the series.

Great audio

📚 BOOK & AUDIO REVIEW 📚

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tracy did it again, I loved every book in this series so far and this one was no different.

From the beginning you can tell the Hero was going to turn into a heartthrob who gets hit so hard he has no idea how to handle it.

Spike was caring from the first page and could tell he was head over heals and didn’t know how to handle his feelings.

Kas know how he felt and pushed him at every turn which was funny to read.

I loved the dynamic of the two of them and I love having the other guys around and Zack reaction always a good read.

Trick still owns my heart though!!

Defy You.
Book 3 from the Rebel Ink series
by the Fabulous Tracy Loraine
Narrated by the Amazing Vanessa Edwin Shane East

When a cheeky late night purchase turns into an all-nighter and you have absolutely no regrets that you got zero sleep, and That’s just about me!!!

I don’t ever want this series to end, I’ve lost count how many times I've listened to the books in this series. I’ve fallen in love with all these tattooed bad boys so far and Spike is no exception.

His protective nature is simply adorable which contributes to him and Kassie finally opening up to each other and as each day goes by he's losing his heart to her and falling head over heels in love with her.
Kassie hasn’t had the greatest up bringing and even though she recently reconnected with her brother Zach who's also Spike’s friend and business partner she's keeping hidden the trouble that is still standing at her door in the form her mother's debt that she ran up before her death. Kassie is forced to do whatever she can to raise the money to pay this debt, she’s a tough cookie who appears to have all the strength and determination with a splash of stubbornness thrown in to get her through each day having never been able to rely on or trust anyone in her life and so why start now, she will just manage on her own as always!
Then in bursts Spike who throws her over his shoulder and simply walks out with her and will not take no for an answer. It's no surprise she won’t accept any help from Spike but he knows underneath all the hardness lies a woman who deserves to be loved and to have someone by her side fighting her corner and Spike is the one person strong enough to take on any challenges she throws his way and boy can she throw! Even Zach, who brings a different kind of trouble can't get in the way of their love developing. He’s definitely not okay with his sister living with Spike or sharing a bed with him but love is much stronger and when the walls finally being to fall, after they’ve tended to each others bruises and scars they finally declare their love for each other and together with family and friends they deal with Kassie’s mother’s debt once and for all!
I've made no secret that I love the books in this series and Spike is just so thoughtful, caring and extremely HOT. I loved the relationship he and Kassie had, the banter was off the scale and had me laughing out loud. Kassie is a little fire cracker and Spike tries to tame her and fails happily after all he would have her any way he could.
I'm excited for the next book and loved the sneaky peek but in the meantime whilst I wait for the next book I will be starting the series all over again!
