Tour! A Review of Stupid Girl by Cindy Miles + Guest Post




Stupid Girl (Stupid in Love #1) by Cindy Miles 
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: May 13, 2014
Publisher: TKA Distribution

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.


Stupid Girl is the first book in the Stupid in Love series by Cindy Miles. Olivia had something tragic happen to her just before her senior year in high school began. After a year of humiliation, she was hoping to start over once college started. That's when she meets Brax. He's hot, cocky, and the ultimate player. They seem to have instant chemistry. Their interactions are funny and cute. I love that he calls her Gracie. When Olivia finds out her ex-boyfriend, Kelsy, is going to the same college, her dream of starting over is ruined. This story brought out a mix of emotions while I read. There was humor, suspense, sadness, steamy-ness, and more. I would liked to have known more about what went on with Kelsy's father behind the scenes. We got some detail, but I feel like I was still missing something. Brax does the impossible by crumbling Olivia's walls, but does he have ulterior motives?
