Jude Ryder is from the CRASH series by Nicole Williams.
Ever since I read CRASH I've had a serious fixation on Jude Ryder. He has it all. He's hot, funny, sweet, romantic, steamy... okay he just has it all. And all the while he just want Lucy Larson to be happy. He outdoes himself as you read on.
Jude is the only one who calls Lucy Luce. I just love that he calls her something no one calls her. That's the only thing he calls her, unless he is completely and utterly upset or broken, then he'll call her Lucy.
“I’ll be here, each day and every day on, as long as you want me to be.”
“The name’s Jude Ryder, since I know you’re all but salivating like a rabid dog to know, and I don’t do girlfriends, relationships, flowers or regular phone calls. If that works for you, I think we could work out something special.”
“I’m cancer, Luce. And not the kind that you can kill off with radiation. The kind that kills you in the end.”
“I’m his girlfriend?” It was meant to be a question to myself, but Taylor couldn’t let it go unanswered.
“You’re the first,” she said, looking at me like I was a puzzle. “You lucky bitch.”
“And I’m sorry I ruined everything we had before I could admit it to you. Before I could admit it to myself. You didn’t make me a better person, because no one can do that. You made me want to be a better person.”
Not convinced? Then go read CRASH and, believe me you'll be begging for your very own Jude Ryder.
I fell in love with Jude Ryder the first time I read about him on the beach, and that was in June 2013. I still talk about him to this very day and remember the CRASH series like I just finished them.
