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.
We met Zac Moore on Julie's Moore Series. Zac is Schooner's son. He grew up around wealth and he was also blessed with great looks. He's used to women throwing themselves at him and using him. The only woman who has made him want to be different is Liliana Castillo. He's intrigued by her from the moment he meets her.
Liliana wants to be part of a bigger cause that continuing her studies at Yale. She moves to Africa to help with a project. When Zac appears in Africa too she doesn't know what to think about him. Women seem to flock to him but he seem to be more than just a handsome guy.
Unfortunate circumstances separate them and the road to find each other is not an easy one.
I'm so glad Julie wrote this book. I hated Zac in the first two books. He was selfish, arrogant and he hurt Mia. I warmed up to him by the end of the series, but in this book I fell for him and I was rooting for him to win the girl he wanted.
"Give me a chance. I'll show you"
Zac demonstrated that he was more than just a pretty boy. He was smart, a loyal friend, a great brother and that he could love Liliana unconditionally.
Lily was shy, intelligent and in a way fearless. Her dedication to help people in need was admirable. I love how she was able to make Zac understand that he was worth loving.
As secondary characters go, Mia was great, his best friend Liz was a hoot and so was Brian (whom I hope gets a book too).
"I don’t know the future, but if I were a betting man, which I am, I’d bet I’m still going to love you two years from now. "
"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?"
"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.
