Stupid Girl By Cindy Miles Review

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 (Goodreads summary)

My Rating (2/5 martinis) I may drop it to one star...but that seems cruel.

My Review

I wasn't impressed by the story line or the characters. I found the leads to be a little flat. When the writer described Brax as "not handsome" I become confused. He's not handsome, but every girl on campus wants to hook up with him? I also didn't feel her past trauma reflecting in her choices. Why would she stay at a school when Kelsey was there? Where were her overprotective brothers? We never even heard from them in the beginning of the book. Then there was the slang. She talked like a girl out of the 50s, and then she spends the entire book making fun of his accent. This book just wasn't for me. I read that a few other people had the same concerns as I did, but many liked it. It must be one of those books. Love it or hate it. It took me way to long to finish, I had to force myself...just like I am having to force myself to write this review.
