I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job.
I quit going out to find that random piece of ass.
Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.
She hates me, loathes me even.
Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.
I’m not giving up.
I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.
No matter what!

Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand.
It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest.
Drinking, talking and flirting.
One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying.
My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground.
Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.
He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.


“We need to talk.” I finally manage to pull away from her. My eyes are diverting from her mouth to her soaked t-shirt. “Fuck,” I snarl. Her pink nipples are standing out against the wet fabric, which is white and very thin. My gaze darkens the further south it goes, down to her tiny little pink and white shorts that are saturated. Rivulets of water are dripping down her long, toned legs, dripping off her silky skin to mix with the giant puddle on the floor.

“You look absolutely beautiful, Red.”

“What in the hell are you doing here, Jude? It’s a monsoon out there. And what gives you the right to barge into my house and attack me like that, anyway? Have you lost your mind?” She shoves me back a step and climbs off the counter, nearly falling on her ass in the process. Slippery when wet, baby! The spell is broken.

“I didn’t lose my mind. You fucking stole it. I can’t stop thinking about you, and no matter what you try and say, I know damn well you don’t want me to. So we are talking, goddamn it!” I yell.

“Well, that sure didn’t sound like talking to me. And take your mind back. I don’t want it.” Liar.

“No, darling, it wasn’t talking. What that was, was several months of pent-up frustration over wanting more of what you gave me the night we met. What that was, was me telling you that I’m not a man who walks away from something he knows is rare. You want to give me my mind back, then let me give you something more to stew about in that pretty head of yours. You are so full of shit if you think for one second I’m buying the piss-ass excuse that you don’t want me. And before your head gets all rattled and you start spewing more of your shit, I’m not talking about sex, Vivian. I’m talking about you. The woman I know is in there, but is too fucking stubborn to let the best side of her out. I want that woman. The woman I met before I fucked shit up. The woman I want to ask out on a date. So, you know what? I’m here to tell you that once you decide to let that woman emerge, you give me a call.”

I turn to leave and grab the door handle. I’m so fucking mad she isn’t trying to stop me like she should that I could spit nails into this door. Hammer this goddamn thing shut.

“I’m telling you right the hell now, Vivian, that if you don’t call me, then you are wasting what I know for a goddamn fact would be the greatest gift given to me, which is you.”

5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak. 

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first:
Riddick (The Saints #1)

This is Vivian and Jude’s story. One night was what they had it was perfect until it wasn’t anymore. Jude opening his mouth and everything was ruined. Jude’s words cut her deep. She is trying to get over it but he seems to be everywhere. Jude knows he messed up and is going to fix it no matter what. He wants Vivian and will get her no matter what. He is willing to fight as dirty as he needs to order to have her as his. He needs a second chance to prove he is the one for her. Will she give in to him and give him another chance? Or will he have to fight her tooth and nail to get a second chance? With all the danger will he have time to chase he down and get her to be his?

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 

I highly recommend this book. 


5 Stars from Brianna!

Kathy Coopmans stole my heart a long time ago when I ran across one of her first novels and I knew then she was my kind of writer. Her books are always packed full of heart, heat, passion, and suspense. She is known for playing with your heart and fiddling with your emotions... only in the best kinds of ways possible.

Jude is her latest book in the Saints series and man she did have me on the edge of my seat the entire book. This story stole my heart and I lost a piece of it along the way. 

Coopmans journey for Vivian and Jude was perfectly executed... with a flowing storyline and addicting plot that will leave your heart racing, palms sweating and have you squirming around in your seat. I got lost between the pages during their journey and I totally regret nothing.

Vivian and Jude.... gah I love these two hard. The push and pull... their connection that was palpable at times.... the chemistry that pulled them together.... it was all just right and easy. Their lust and love poured right off of the pages on my kindle.

Jude is the second standalone in the Saints series. While this book can be read entirely on its own, I recommend you read Riddick prior to Jude, as you get a more complete picture and story.

I highly recommend this book.
