Release Day Blitz: Bad Son Rising by Julie A. Richman

Add to Goodreads:
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.
After reading the Searching for Moore series I have to say this.... 'who knew that Zac Moore would become a book boyfriend??!!'
Zac was the moody, pouty and spoilt son of Schooner who seemed to cause so much trouble between his father and Mia.  The one thing that redeemed him with me was how much he loved his little brother and sister.  He is so sweet with them :)
Zac pretty much parties it up in college, he is popular and attractive, girls just hang off him so he takes full advantage of that.  After getting caught doing something he shouldn't have, he gets sent home from college.  Schooner is furious with him and after a bit of soul searching Zac decides to go to the Congo to help out in the villages with installing water pumps.  This will also open his eyes up to how other people live and give him appreciation for what he has in his own life. 
The other reason he is happy to go is because Lily will be there.  Her father and his are best friends so Zac & Lily have known each other for a long time.  Zac thinks she is beautiful but she confuses him.  She seems to be the only girl he has met who hasn't fallen for his charm.  This intrigues and challenges him.  She is intelligent, passionate and determined.  Qualities he admires and finds very attractive.  He sets out to make her notice him, in a very subtle way. Will this be the only woman who is immune to the charms of Zac Moore? 
It's not long before these two become good friends.  Zac brings a level of knowledge and skills to his work at the Congo that gives him a great sense of satisfaction.  He is admired by his fellow colleagues and that includes Lily.  He wants her but knows that she really deserves to be with someone more worthy of her.  When a terrifying event happens out in the Congo, Zac has to make to make a life threatening decision or innocent lives will be lost.
 Zac is not a bad person, he had made some stupid decisions in his life but they have all led to this.  This is a story about redemption, acceptance and growth.  He has the potential to do something great with his life and show just how wrong and judgemental some people in his life have been.  He has something to prove and he does just that.
I loved this.  Zac definitely has redeemed himself in my eyes and I just knew he had it in him!
I give this 4 stars
I wasn’t kidding when I said that I was not going to be able to wait for next time.” 
Lily’s elusive smile started at the corners of her mouth, lifting the apples of her cheeks and crinkling the outer edges of her gold-flecked eyes. “Do you seriously think you’re going to bang me against a Baobab tree?”
I know I’m going to bang you against a Baobab tree.” He was already working on the zipper of her jeans. With his hands inside her pants, he slipped them into her underwear, tightly grasping her ass.
Lily’s gasp was audible as he kneaded a cheek with each hand.
Are you ready for me?” he whispered.
Nodding she stepped out of her jeans and he undid his. Lifting her, she wrapped her legs around his slim hips and he lowered her onto his waiting cock. Leaning her back against the ancient tree trunk for leverage, Zac thrust his hips up burying himself deeply within Lily.
Her eyes were wide as she let out another gasp. “I’ve never fucked against a tree.”
Zac laughed, “It’s a first for me too, babe.” And after a few more strokes, “Tighten your legs around me, Lils.” Not taking his eyes off of hers, “You feel so damn good.”
You too,” were the only words she could squeak out and finally, as a result of his deep pounding, with bated breath, “Zac.”
He nodded, “I know, babe.” His final powerful thrusts had her back molded to the tree.
He fell into her, the old Baobab holding them both up. With their heads on one another’s shoulders, they stood very still until they’d both regained their breath.
Hand-in-hand they headed back to camp.
Please don’t fall in love with me, Zac silently warned.
Please fall in love with me, Zac silently prayed.
