Alex’s family loved Liam too, and Liam’s friends all liked Alex for him. But Alex’s career goals got in the way. She rejected Liam’s marriage proposal and they parted ways.
Max Collins is the second ex-girlfriend as Darlene “Darcy” Sibuyan. She and Liam met after Liam broke up with Alex. They became friends until they fell for each other. But when an opportunity abroad presented itself to Darcy, she decided to take it. The long distance relationship didn’t work for both of them, eventually breaking them apart.
The third ex-girlfriend is Rhian Ramos as Sophia Elizabeth “Zoe” Velasquez. She is a swimwear designer and blogger who’s always out for fun. Her parents separated when she was young which is why Liam became her pseudo-family. However, Zoe’s possessive tendencies and Liam’s busy schedule is the reason why their relationship fell apart. But ever since breaking up with him, Zoe regretted her decision and wants Liam back.
