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.

A friends to lovers story.
I have read books by this author before Bulldozer and Heartbreaker, Nothing but wild is nothing like those, it contained very little angst, it's sweet, its heartwarming and contains a swoon-worthy hea, it had all the feels of a college romance with younger characters, a Y/A N/A crossover.
Dallas and Dora are opposites, Dora is a sweet girl with a stammer, she volunteers at an animal shelter while Dallas is a popular guy, a party goer and they are from completely different backgrounds but they worked. Their slow build from friendship to romance was heartwarming.
I haven't read previous books in this Malibu University series but having read reviews, I suggest doing so before this story and understanding the dynamic of this friendship group with Dallas and other characters because I couldn't really bond with Dallas at all and I think that would have come from reading previous books and wanting to know more about him, I didn't find him interesting enough and I do prefer more angst in my books too which I found very little of in NOTHING BUT WILD to keep me eagerly turning the pages.
In summary; a heartwarming young adult, friends to lovers story
