Character Profile Ryder Vaughn, from LYRICS HEART & SOUL by Anne Marie Citro #Giveaway

Lyrics Heart & Soul Tour Graphic

Character Profile Ryder Vaughn

            Ryder Vaughn is the reclusive drummer and song writer from the rock band Fornication. He is thirty-years old and lives in California. He was born in Rio de Janeiro and moved to Toronto when he was eleven. His mother was born in Toronto and his father was born Rio. Ryder is a 6’5” monster with a goatee and a bad attitude. He was raised by an abusive father until he was shipped to Canada.
            Ryder doesn’t have any friends except for his bandmates. He is a loner. He wasn’t raised with the skills to learn how to forge relationships. He has never had a girlfriend nor does he ever want one. He loves his music but can’t stand all the fame that comes with legendary band. Ryder doesn’t have a lot of respect for his life as he gets caught for a second-time stunt driving in Toronto while on tour.
            The judge decides to teach him the value of his life by sentencing him to ten months of community service at Reach Within Centre for individuals with special needs. Ryder meets his match with child and youth worker Francesca he will be working with. She has no time or interest in the man. Francesca’s two loves are the kids she works with and her family.
            Ryder doesn’t talk a lot but observes more than most. When the kids walk into the facility Ryder thinks he has just step onto the crazy train. The group of eclectic special needs kids makes him think his sentence will feel like a lifetime. Ryder is bitter man as result of his upbringing but soon learns he a lot of people deal with some terrible thing in their life and still manage to be happy.
            In the ten months Ryder finds the soul he didn’t think he possessed. He falls in love with a woman so good and pure he is afraid to taint her goodness. The kids teach him about survival and resiliency. Francesca shows the giant of man the strength is in character not size. Francesca and the teenagers teach him to love, live, laugh, and how to cry. Ryder learns the most important and remarkable lessons are taught by people society doesn’t acknowledge.
            Ryder is my most favorite character ever. He haunted my dreams and thoughts for months while I was trying to write another book. He finally persuaded me to stop writing the other one so his story could be told. I have never met anyone so determined not to fit in and care yet feel as deeply so deeply. The epilogue destroys me and I still cry every time I read it because of the man Ryder becomes.

            
Ryder thought he was going to lose his mind.
Instead Francesca helped him find his heart & soul

LYRICS HEART & SOUL
Anne Marie Citro
Series: Sistas Book 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance
Publication Date: December 4, 2016
One of America’s most reclusive rockers, Ryder Vaughn, gets an unusual sentence handed down to him. The judge, hoping to teach him the value of human life, sentences him to ten months of community service at Reach Within Centre for individuals with special needs. Ryder is convinced that, if he isn’t crazy already, he will be by the time his sentence ends. However, his only other option forfeits his band’s livelihood.
Five minutes after stepping into the centre, his entire life changes when he meets a gorgeous, little spitfire who will challenge everything he has ever believed about himself and the world around him.
Francesca's devotion has always been to her family, friends, and the job she is passionate about. Her life hasn’t been easy. She sacrifices a lot for the ones she loves and for her dream to visit Italy.
Then Francesca finds herself in a desperate situation, and the tattooed beast who is serving his debt to society must save the headstrong woman from a secret that could destroy her. In turn, Francesca teaches Ryder, if you love something enough, it’s worth fighting for.
Ryder knows he isn’t worthy of love, but this incredible beauty makes him want it.
Ryder can save Francesca from her secrets, but can she save him from his? Is Ryder strong enough to endure the kids she loves and her crazy Italian family?
Ten months can fly by or it can last an eternity.
"This beautifully written novel weaves a story of courage, independence and redemption while pulling on your emotional heart strings through music."
- Annette Cosentino, Amazon Reviewer
"What I love about Citro is she puts so many beautiful life lessons in her books. This one focused a lot on special needs children and how everyone, especially those who are the hardest, need and deserve love"
- Kristin Campbell, Goodreads Reviewer
