People think I’m a douche.

And maybe I am.

I use most people.

It’s what I know.

But if I love you,

I’d die for you.

I just don’t know that I’m worth loving.

Handsome, privileged bad boy Zac Moore has always played by his own rules – at school, in business, with women. He’s rewritten the rules to suit his own needs and his needs are all that matter.

Serious and focused family friend Liliana Castillo has one goal. Leave the pre-Med program at Yale to help people in developing nations.

As their paths cross and uncross, a tale of love, agony, betrayal and growth is woven, transforming two people who’ve hidden from relationships and love.

This is a stand-alone novel.

“Lils, I don’t know that I’m great boyfriend material. I’m used to being a dick. It’s what I know.” He was hoping she’d say something, but she didn’t. “But I would want it to be different with you. You’re not a drive-by. And I don’t really know how to do the other stuff. But you make me want it. You make me want to try.”

Sweeping her hair to one side, he buried his face in her neck.

Finally, she spoke, “Are you saying this to me because we’re stuck here? Because if you are, don’t. I don’t want a one night stand with you, Zac.”

Letting his teeth graze the soft skin of her neck, he felt her shiver, “I don’t want a one night stand with you either and with my track record I know that may be hard to believe. And of course the one girl I want to believe it, doesn’t.” Pulling his mouth away from her delicious tasting neck, he rested his chin on her shoulder.

“Ok, I’ve got nothing to lose here,” he began. “The weekend we met, all I wanted to do was make you notice me,” he laughed, “and you didn’t even know that I was alive. I wanted to make you smile, Lils. Isn’t that crazy. I just wanted to make you smile.”

Turning herself fully within the circle of his arm, she was on her knees facing him, “You wanted to make me smile?”

He nodded.

“I was so miserable. I just wanted to be over here. I didn’t want to be back at Yale.” Surprising him, she placed her hands on his cheeks, “And you wanted to make me smile?”

He nodded again.

And there it was, beautiful and elusive, and Zac could feel his emotions rising dangerously close to the surface. Liliana Castillo had a heart stopping smile and the only thing he could do was return it with one of his own.

This book was not at all what I expected.  I thought I was going to read a typical “bad boy meets good girl and they fall in love.”  Bad Son Rising is anything but typical, and I was so glad.

Zac Moore comes across as a wealthy, cocky, arrogant bad boy, but there is so much depth to him.  He truly is a good guy with a soft spot for those in need, though the way he helps is misguided at times.  Liliana Castillo appears to be the complete opposite of Zac.  She’s sweet, shy, and humble.  When Zac is offered an opportunity that he can’t refuse, they soon realize than they have much more in common than people would have thought.

Zac has wanted Lily since he first met her, but she wanted nothing to do with him.  When they find themselves together thousands of miles away from home, she can’t deny the attraction that is there.  She also can’t deny that she may have misjudged Zac.  He is nothing like the bad boy player that he portrays himself to be.

Zac and Lily finally decide that the chemistry and attraction between them is too strong to overlook, so they decide that they would like to see where a relationship between them will go.  Things seem to be going perfectly for them, and then tragedy strikes.  In order for one to save the other, lies are told, and heartbreaking, unforgivable words are spoken.  When the truth comes out, will it be too late for them to reunite?  Or will there be too much emotional damage for them to even consider a reconciliation?

Bad Son Rising is an incredible book.  I highly recommend.
