Stupid Girl by Cindy Miles

Only fools fall in love...

After her senior year of high school leaves behind nothing but heartache, Olivia Beaumont is sure of this: She’s no stupid girl. She sets out for Winston College, promising herself that she will remain focused on her first and only love – astronomy. But all it takes is cocky sophomore Brax Jenkins and an accidental collision with a football, to throw her entire year off course.

A quick-tempered Southie who escaped the inner city streets of Boston to pitch for Winston, Brax is known to play way more fields than just the baseball diamond. So, when his name is drawn to take part in his fraternity’s hazing dare, Brax eagerly accepts the mission to take Olivia’s virginity. But he doesn’t plan on falling hard for the sweet and sassy Texas girl who sees right through his bad-boy persona.

As Olivia and Brax battle their feelings for each other, echoes of the past year begin to surface. A boy who once turned Olivia’s whole world upside down reappears, and “harmless” pranks wreak havoc. Pretty soon the aspiring astronomer is on the verge of revealing her most difficult, heartbreaking secret. All the while, Brax must wrestle with the irrevocable dare, and Olivia struggles against all logic as she does the one thing only a stupid girl would do: fall in love.
5/5 Stars

I loved this book. It was angsty, emotional, romantic, frustrating at times, and suspenseful. It was your typical bad boy/good girl romance theme, but the Author threw in twists to make it her own. I found myself instantly addicted from page one and couldn't wait to see what happened in the end.

The story was about a girl, Olivia, moving away to college to put space between her and an ex boyfriend. She never expected to be knocked over by bad boy, Brax, but when she was... her life turned upside down. Everything she told herself couldn't happen started to. Her mind set on no boyfriends... knocked out the window... The mind set of only thoughts about school and astronomy... gone. Brax was what consumed her mind and she was struggling to be ok with it. When a ghost from the past shows up and adds more drama she starts falling even harder for Brax. He is her protector and knight in shining armor... That is until secrets are revealed. Those secrets rip Olivia's heart in two.

I loved the angsty banter between Brax and Olivia. The relationship between the two reminded me of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Same cocky, arrogant boy that is undone by the good girl. Olivia is smart, witty, and kind of geeky. I loved her and Brax, well he is my new book boyfriend of the week. I loved how he was edgy and raw, yet sweet and caring too. The two of them together were quite the pair. I am team Brax and Gracie all the way!

I definitely think the Author did a wonderful job with this story. My heart broke at the end. but I was happy with how it all turned out. With that being said... I Highly recommend Stupid Girl... It's everything a New Adult Romance should be.
