Nothing But Trouble (Malibu University #1) by P. Dangelico


4.5 Stars

Alice Bailey has worked tirelessly to be able to transfer into Malibu University as a film major. She is a long way from home, and the people seem almost like another species entirely, but she is where she needs to be to achieve her dream… and she won’t let anything get in her way…

Reagan Reynolds is a water polo superstar at Malibu U. He is also rich, sexy and on his way to med school. In other words, completely wrong for a girl like Alice. But, after he practically runs her over, the super popular Reagan finds himself fighting for a chance to see Alice again… and for her to give him the time of day…


Nothing But Trouble was a refreshingly fun read that at the same time was also heartfelt and incredibly genuine. Alice and Reagan’s story was an enchanting slow burn romance that resonated long after it’s final page…

Alice has recently relocated from New Jersey as a college transfer to attend film school in Malibu. With a lot riding on her academic success and her ability to financially supplement her full scholarship, getting injured is something she just can’t afford. But, she is nothing if not a fighter, so she’ll figure it out… preferably without the attention of THE Reagan Reynolds…

On the surface Reagan has it all. From his talent in the pool and his legions of fans, to his wealthy upbringing and his future in med school. Meeting Alice, who is completely unimpressed with all things Reagan Reynolds, holds him fascinated, but when she is there for him when he needs support, his desire to spend all of his time with her grows into so much more…

I loved this book so much, it showed a rare take on a college age romance, with the focus of forming lasting friendships and taking people as they are, the characters were so far removed from the usual superficial college kids we are typically given in this particular trope.

Alice was just the best. She was always a lot of fun, and at the same time an admirable and fascinating character. I especially couldn’t get enough of her encounters with Reagan, where she refused to give him an inch of special treatment. And her dedication to her success in school and her future in filmmaking was truly an inspiring trait.

Reagan was such a well-adjusted and considerate man… especially considering what he he came from. He never used his popularity on campus as an excuse to be anything less than a nice guy who wanted to spend as much time as he could with Alice.

With her talent for writing brilliantly authentic, multi-faceted characters and unique stories that you haven’t seen before, the incredibly talented P. Dangelico has delivered yet another fantastic must read book in Nothing But Trouble.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
