But if I love you,
I'd die for you.
I just don't know that I'm worth loving.

my review

You’ll hate him, you’ll love him. You can’t help but fall for this guy. He might have been a douche, making his own rules, doing his own things, shagging every girl he wants but deep down, he’s an amazing friend who would do anything and everything for the people he cared about. He’s a sweet brother, and a reformed son. He did something previously and is making up for it.

It was in a wedding when his attention was caught by a family friend, Liliana Castillo. For the first time, his charms didn’t work on this Pre-Med Yale student. Like his father, she was set on leaving the program and help people in developing nations.

For months, their paths didn’t meet. They had their own lives. He had his own misfortunes, was kicked out of school near finals – but this turned out to be a blessing as this incident paved way for him and Liliana to meet again.

Only this time, he had to play his game right. His rival is the project head, and it would not be beneficial for him to antagonize his boss. So, he waited for the right time, meanwhile he kept himself busy with work, and getting things done which amazed the rest of the people. He’s the first one who gets his hand dirty and really works his a** off. He found a new meaning in his life, and is happy making things done. Now, if only he can have the girl of his dreams.

But just as when his cards were doing well, an accident had once again pulled them apart. With broken hearts and painful reminder of the accident – he thought he was doing her a favor. He thought it was for the best. But he was just so wrong. Both of them had suffered from heartaches, and seeing her with another just made it a little more painful to bear. He needed to win her back, and this time, he’ll make sure not to let her go.

I love his entrepreneurial skills and his ability to help his friends. It might have been a little unconventional, but he made sure his friends were safe. He’s a little carefree, he plays games he’s sure to win – and this had earned him enemies, which cost him a lot of troubles in school. I like his character in this novel, how his character being flawed and all, yet likable. How he became a man, his transformation throughout the pages of the book. From a happy-go-lucky person to a responsible mature individual.

Bad Son Rising is a great read. The author will bring to you the different sides of the rich and influential people. You will love the different characters, most especially our bad son who is continuously changing throughout the entire story.  This is a one rollercoaster ride not only in finding true love, but in finding oneself.

"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.
