    Dean Gregory (My married name. Gregory can be used as last or first name.)
    Elyse- Julien’s hot assistant. (My youngest daughter’s middle name) Can also be spelled Elise or Alyse…
    Kyra (pronounced Kira…short i sound) (not Keera, though that would work too) for the gorgeous woman who works at Julien’s hedge fund firm. (Kyra is my oldest daughter’s name)

  • Julien Kincaid (My maiden name)
    Dean Gregory (My married name. Gregory can be used as last or first name.)
    Elyse- Julien’s hot assistant. (My youngest daughter’s middle name) Can also be spelled Elise or Alyse…

  • What an exciting giveaway! It’s awesome that there will now be 8 lucky Zack Love fans who get their names in this book!

    Julien’s therapist or Julien’s hot assistant in the university class he teaches should be named ‘Nita or Grace 🙂

  • Dean Stetson – this was the name of my Dean. He is a great man!

    1) Daina – just cause I think it fits

    2) Melody

  • 1) Julien’s therapist~~~~Nikki
    2) Julien’s hot assistant in the university class he teaches~~~Amber
    3) the ex-girlfriend of Michael (the Syrian-Christian political activist, and the other powerful man in Anissa’s life)~~~~Olivia
    4) Anissa’s university friend who also has a crush on Julien~~~Verna 😉

  • 1. Julian Morales

    2. Julian Soto

    Female

    3. Anissa’s university friend who also has a crush on Julien
    Should be Stevlana

    4. The gorgeous woman who works at Julien’s $20 billion hedge fund firm
    Should be named Aria.

  • Julien Beauvoir means lovely view~ describes our hottie Julien to a T 😉

  • Julien Guyot. This was my grandfathers middle name and last name. His father was a stow away on a ship from France.

    Dean Waterson. My uncle is a college professor Robert Waterson.

  • Dean Thaddeous Montgomery (Tad)
    Montgomery is my nephew’s first name 🙂

    • I think alot of today’s men have become too feminized and I believe that women like men who are manly. I see alot of men who are lazy and living off of a woman, don’t know how to do anything around the house at all, or are selfish and only interested in what it is in for them. That being said there are alot of women that have those same exact characteristics. I can say as a woman that I want a man that can match me – he needs to be at my level intellectually & emotionally, have his own money so he doesn’t want mine, and is a good person.

  • Julien’s therapist should be a woman because she would be more likely to put him off balance. Her name is Miranda because it will tempt him to not take her seriously by calling her Randy, but she will quickly put him in his place lol

  • The gorgeous woman who works at Julien’s hedge fund is Bianca, meaning the fair, the white, and ultimately, the untouchable.

  • 1) Julien’s therapist – Kelly. I think that name suits the type of person who could pick a person’s brain apart (theoretically) without them even knowing.

    2) Julien’s hot assistant in the university class he teaches. – Kelly. Again, this name has sex appeal. Don’t you think?

    3) the ex-girlfriend of Michael (the Syrian-Christian political activist, and the other powerful man in Anissa’s life) I’d say Kelly again, although Kelly doesn’t sound Syrian. I think it’s Irish.

    4) Anissa’s university friend who also has a crush on Julien. – Kelly is a great name for a friend.

    5) the maid who lives with Anissa’s family in Syria. – Maybe not Kelly this time. How about Amsah. It’s Syrian and means ‘friendly; of good company’.

    6) the gorgeous woman who works at Julien’s $20 billion hedge fund firm. – You really can’t go past Kelly.

    7) Anissa’s therapist. Again, Kelly springs to mind.

    8) Julien Kelly. I actually think this sounds great. ‘Mr Kelly’.

    9) Dean Kelly.

  • 1) Charlotte

    2) Tessa

    4) Maya

    6) Stella

    Thanks Zack! This is brilliant! 🙂

  • Dean Christopher Butterworth Because it is the name of my best friend who died 5 years ago. He was super smart and it would be cool to see his name in print.

  • 2) Julien ‘s hot assistant Maggie

    3) ex girlfriend Laura

    4) Friend with a crush Alice
