Stupid Girl (Stupid in Love #1) 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 University, 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.
Sigh. There were, unfortunately, several typos/mistakes throughout this book. It felt like a manuscript instead of a finalized novel to me. The quality of writing wasn’t very good either. Miles portrayed a very immature writing style.
We get to see the odd chapter through Brax’s point of view (I think maybe 2 chapters are in his point of view). The rest are told from Olivia’s perspective.
Everything was pretty weak about this book. There was nothing great about it in my opinion. The characters weren’t developed enough and they weren’t all that interesting. I was barely into their story and it was obvious how the story was going to play out. It followed a very common NA pattern to a T. I won’t be reading the sequel.
