Looking for Trouble
Clay's all dirty jokes and curse words, while I'm quiet and shy. I try to blend into the background, while he strives to be the center of everyone’s attention.
Allergic to fun
I never expected to fall in love. Especially not with a girl I've known all my life. One who’s always been off-limits.
Opposites might attract, but in th...more
First off I will say that the synopsis is a bit misleading. I didn't find Kat to be the uptight, sheltered, or allergic to fun girl that was described. I expected some girl who kept to the shadows but thats not what I got. While compared t ...more

I came across Looking For Trouble by Stacey Mosteller by complete accident. I thought the synopsis sounded like something I would enjoy. I mean who wouldn’t want to read about two opposite characters coming together? Since this was my first book by Ms. Mosteller I wasn’t sure what to expect but once the story started to get going I found out that I enjoyed it.

These two are opposites in every way possible yet they run in the same circle of friends. When I first started reading I honestly thought it was going to be two different love stories because to me there was no way these two would ...more
Why don‘t you just talk about your feelings instead of getting butthurt because someone didn‘t take those feelings into consideration.
I like the slow burn feel of Kat and Clay‘s relationship and how they struggled to get to that certain point.
But oh my god, everything was about Kat, Kat, Kat. She never said anything about anything but she still got aggravated because people didn‘t bow to her feelings and expectations 🙄 that’s fine in the beg ...more
Enemies to friends. Friends to lovers. Sounds cliche, but the way Stacey cleverly wrote this story it is far from cliche. It's a smart, lovely, entertaining read that will keep you pulled in to the very end.

**I read this with my KU subscription**
Well, where should I start? This is such a great book!
Even though I’m in the university environment taking my Master’s degree, I’m way past the characters’ group age, who are undergraduates. However, I could totally relate to their struggles and drama. I can get a little tired of some novels that portrait ‘Coming of Age’ situations; but that was NOT the case with Looking for Trouble at all.
Granted I sometime ...more

Looking for Trouble is the first in a new adult contemporary romance series, called Nashville U, by Stacey Mosteller. This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by author Stacey Mosteller. I really enjoyed Looking for Trouble. it is what I would consider a classic new adult tale of falling for the wrong brother, but with a twist. Stacey kind of takes the idea and spins it on its' head, making it feel f ...more
Rather monochromatic, obscure, vague. Shadowy. Part of the title is lost in the smaller view, leaving only "trouble" visible... but that is what catches your eye and really makes you LOOK at it. Synopsis is interesting enough; thankfully, not another step-sibling trope! LOOKING FOR TROUBLE will be the first book I've read by this author.

Prepare for some major . . . NA content. The first few pages are rather explicit as a random girl gives Clay a . . . a lap dance. But this opens our mind to the understanding that . . . Clay is all over with the girls. But there is only one girl he teases the most, and that is his younger brother's best friend, Katrina. Or Kat . . . Kitty Kat.
Of course, you know it has been done before: Bad boy, good girl, brother's best fr ...more

I read this as a stand-alone, and after the first few introductions to the characters, it was clear it was not a standalone. Names were mentioned and tossed away, continuing storylines didn’t flow, etc.
This book has all the right aspects of a college athlete romance trope and none of the writing to go with it. A lot of sloppy storylines that don’t always make sense. Like the part about fighting? Take that out completely and the story is still the same. I liked the premise ...more
The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.
I loved the chemistry between the characters.
