Dallas Van Zant…
Water polo god.
Beautiful disaster in the most literal sense of that label.
Trust me, it’s not hyperbole. He’s in big trouble with the law.
What does this have to do with me, you ask? Unfortunately, a lot. For some reason, which I still can’t quite wrap my brain around, I’ve been talked into driving him around as part of his plea deal.
Problem is, he makes me nervous. I’m not good with people, men in particular, popular athletes especially. I’ve worked really hard to get my disability under control and one minute in his company and all my hard work flies out the window.
To top it all off, I promised myself that I was going to make some serious changes this year. I’m tired of feeling awkward around boys. I’m tired of never having had a boyfriend. I’m tired of being lonely. And he’s wrecking my plans.
But I’m also not the type to turn away a person in need. So I’ll do what I must to help him out.
I’ll just pretend that I’m not enjoying his company. And I’ll ignore the fact that he’s sweet and funny. And I’ll tell myself every day that he’s out of my league.
Because I’m as inexperienced as they come. And Dallas Van Zant is nothing but wild.
Dallas Van Zant is my guilty pleasure. Some girls have shoes. Some reality TV. Mine happens to be daydreaming about Dallas….and doughnuts.
I have been waiting for Dora and Dallas and I am so so so IN LOVE with their story. It wasn’t what I expected, but it was so much more.
I loved their friendship, the bond they both formed and then as it grew into something more. It was beautiful, emotional and everything I could have wanted. Dora is insecure, she comes from a different social standing than Dallas, yet she can’t help but crush on him. I love that Dallas is more than just the good-looking jock. He is sweet, caring, supportive and protective, especially when it comes to Dora. The chemistry between these two was a slow build, but once they finally give in it was magical and beautiful and I truly never wanted this story to end.
I loved the scenes with the rest of the Water polo crew, plus Zoe, Blake and Alice. I love this entire crew and I can’t wait for more of them in the future.
This can be read as a complete standalone, however, if you’ve read Nothing but Trouble you will notice some of the overlap between timelines. Nothing but Wild is a MUST READ!
