That's What HE Said Thursday #43: Ryder from Lying Out Loud

That's what HE said Thursday is a weekly meme hosted at Chapter Break where you post a favorite line of a book boyfriend to his girl. It's the perfect meme to share all those awesome quotes!

                     Today's quote is from Ryder of Lying Out Loud by Kody Koplinger!


Ryder: If I were there, I would lie on the bed next to you and pull you into my arms.
Sonny: I'm actually on a couch right now.
Ryder: Are you TRYING to make this difficult for me?
Sonny: No. Sorry. Continue.
Ryder: Then I would... kiss your neck?
I snorted.
Sonny: You seem unsure about that.
Ryder: You make me nervous. I'd be nervous if I were there with you.                
-Ryder to Sonny

I laughed so hard when I read these text messages. Ryder and Sonny are trying for the first time "sexting", and as you can see, the results are hilarious. Sweet too, mostly on Ryder's end. However, I wouldn't call Ryder my book boyfriend since I really didn't fall for him, but moments like this one made me appreciate him a little bit more and I wanted to share it with everyone. 


  1. I haven't heard/seen this book before but this sounds really hilarious! Now I have to hunt down this book on my local bookstore.
