A steamy summer encounter with bad boy Jude means trouble for Lucy. Her sights are set on becoming a ballerina, and she won't let anything get in her way . . . except Jude.
He's got a rap sheet, dangerous mood swings, and a name that's been sighed, shouted, and cursed by who knows how many girls.
Jude's a cancer, the kind of guy who's fated to ruin the lives of girls like Lucy—and he tells her so.
But as rumors run rampant and reputations are destroyed, Lucy's not listening to Jude's warning. Is tragedy waiting in the wings? This racy romance is hot, hot, hot!

Wanna know why I STILL have not been cured of the Jude fever?? Let’s see why!
♥He is the KING of swoon! It’s like he was taken from my dreams and made REAL! When we are first introduced to him, I KNEW I was gong to fall for him. It didn’t take me long to get into his character because he’s just so dang SMEXY. *Fans self*
♥Did I mention he’s s friggin BAD BOY?? Like, you know there are some that “claim” to be bad boys but they’re really not? Or maybe they are all broody so they think by DEFAULT that makes them a bad boy? * snaps fingers* YAWL, Jude Ryder gets the bad boy crown from me! (If you guys want to swoon, I have found a swoon king for ya!)
♥He is a passionate person and I can tell that he really loves Lucy! (The heroine who is of equal awesome-sauce) The way he touches her when they’re together, the way he talks to her, the way he treats her. GAH! Never shall I ever stop doing the swooning thing over Jude Ryder!:) Nope, nope, NOPE!
♥His stubbronesss just adds to the fact that he is the swoon king! No one can tell him what to do nor who to love which is why he fell so hard for Lucy. She challenges him and he starts to change for her.(I know this is a fictional story and all. And IRL you can’t really change a man but HEY… a girl can DREAM, can’t she?
♥I don’t know what it is about that same black beanie he always wears but the fact that I can picture him wearing it and can imagine him looking all mysterious and broody-ish… Oh. YAAAS.
