Nothing But Trouble (Malibu University #1) by P. Dangelico
Reagan Reynolds…Water polo god.Owner of a face that belongs under Wikipedia’s definition of drop dead gorgeous.Too charming for his own good.But most importantly––the worst driver on the planet.No, really, I’m pretty sure his blind nana taught him how to drive.I had no idea who he was until he almost ran me over. And frankly, I kind of wish I still didn’t because then I wouldn’t have a sprained ankle to show for it. And my leg wouldn’t resemble a boa constrictor that’s swallowed a feral pig. Yeah, it’s that bad.I’ve spent years saving every penny I’ve ever earned to be able to transfer to Malibu University. And now my entire future––including my scholarship––is in jeopardy. So I either accept the help he insists on giving me, or lose everything I’ve sacrificed for. In the meantime, I’m going to ignore the fact that we’re becoming friends.And I’m definitely going to pretend he’s not turning into the object of my…umm, dirty fantasies. That’s not happening. Not even a little.Because the minute I clapped eyes on him I knew he was nothing but trouble.

Nothing but Trouble was such a sweet romance book, that I devoured in one sitting. An easy light read about a collage romance where water polo God, Reagan Reynolds, faces the pressures of his family’s expectations. You can guess correct by his name only, that he comes from a rich family, but that does not mean they are perfect! On the contrary, just too good to keep up with the appearances.
When Rae, accidently, nearly runs over Alice, he meets a girl he cannot stop to chase. Due to all his struggles to keep up with what it’s expected of him, he wishes not to follow up on his attraction, not adding up to too much responsibilities. Alice is a film major, and chases her dreams, especially since she fears she might, one day, face cancer just as her mother and grandmother did. Rea is extremely attracted by her strong spirit of carpe diem and chooses to keep her close, in the friend zone. A bit difficult, and he’ll learn this the hard way.
“Delete my prior claim. This guy is way out of my league. The only way my panties would ever get near his face is if he had a gushing head wound and I needed to stop the bleeding to save his life.”
Things happen, some sad stuff gets us a bit shaky, but nothing will stand in the face of love. Unfortunately, decisions must be made. I think it’s safe to say, he’ll come back to his happily ever after.
“Love doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It’s inextricably intertwined with self-sacrifice, vulnerability, risk…and yes, pain. Maybe that’s why we’re so often disillusioned by it. We demand it to be perfect when in essence love can’t exist without the risk of pain and the cost of safety.”
