Book Blitz & Review--- Bad Son Rising by Julie A. Richmond

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 was the first book by Julie A. Richmond that I have had the privilege of reading. And I am glad it was this book that started my journey with her. Bad Son Rising is the story of Zac Moore, the quintessential bad boy with a strong sexual drive..

Zac is in college and is the object of every warm blooded females affection. He says on your knees, there's a line of girls. He says spread 'em, there is more than one willing participant. Zac has never had to ask for anything sexual with anyone, it's always just come to him. But theaters thing with his sexual love affair, he doesn't feel a thing. And Zac wants to feel. He wants love... 

And he knows just who could make him feel that way. Lily. The one girl who showed him no interest and got away. This is Zac's journey into the realms of the real world. He finds his Lily and he begins to love. Something that is so foreign to him with the expectation of his family and his best friend Liz.
Which by the way, there is only one word to describe Liz, AWESOME. Zac was my favorite character in this book, but Liz almost stole that place numerous times throughout this story. She was hysterical and I loved the relationship her and Zac shared.

I don't want to give too much away so I will end this here but if you're looking for bad look no further. If you're looking for funny, look no further, come join this love affair with the elusive Zac Moore. This may have been my first Julie Richmond story but it surely will not be my last.... Sigh, I want a Zac Moore.

4 stars for Bad Son Rising.


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.
