Nothing But Trouble was my first book by this author, and it definitely WON’T be the last!
I didn’t know how desperate I was to read a brilliantly written NA, sports romance until I started this book. I can honestly say I can’t remember the last one I read. So this book was the PERFECT story I needed at the PERFECT time. It’s like my hypothetical ‘NA romance maidenhead’ grew back, and this book blasted right through it with a battering ram. Was that a little TMI?….oh, well….you’ve most likely read worse, so you’ll survive. *shrug*
Nothing But Trouble has ALL THE THINGS needed in a great freaking novel! Humor, heat, friendship, angst, witty banter, chemistry, heartache and sickeningly sexy romance that makes your pulse race and your blood boil!
This story starts out with a bang….almost literally. *snort-laugh* (Just read it, then you’ll know what I’m talking about.) I LOVED the evolution of Reagan and Alice’s relationship….from somewhat enemies-to-friends-to-lovers, their connection was pure fire right from the start. And the more you learn about them individually, you can’t help but root for them to become a real couple throughout the entire story. Just when you think “YES, YES! It’s finally happening!”, a wicked wrench gets thrown into the mix, causing all your hopes and naughty dreams to fly out the window. My emotions were put through the proverbial wringer as I endured the highs and lows, the ups and downs, and maybe the ‘ins and outs’ *another snort-laugh* (see what I did there?) of Reagan and Alice’s relationship. You may be wondering, “But their love prevails in the end, right?”….maybe? Maybe not. Love isn’t easy. It’s not all rainbows and butterflies… no matter how much we wish it was.
This book was utterly fantastic! I fell in love with both characters immediately and didn’t want this story to end. The only thing I could’ve wanted was a bit longer of an ending. After Reagan and Alice endured so much in the story, the ending seemed a bit incomplete. It didn’t distract or take away from the rest of the story line at all, not one bit…that’s just me being greedy. I just wanted more!
Without a doubt, a highly-recommended must read! Don’t pass it up!

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.
