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.

I recieved an e-ARC from TKA Distribution via Netgalley for an honest review. This fact in no shape or form affects my revew. Except for the existence of the review itself. I recieved no compensation for this review in any way.This is my honest opinion of the work.

Stupid Girl is a new adult book and I quite enjoyed this one because it didn't have an excessive amount of sex scenes. It only had about two sex scenes throughout the entire book. Some new adults tend to overdo it and it turns into erotica rather than new adult.

The title was apropos to the story as Olivia decides that even after some bad stuff has happened to her in the past, that she would take a chance on the "bad boy player" of the college. There was something really charming about Brax and Olivia could see that too, clearly as she falls for him. Also, the phrase Stupid Girl is repeated several times throughout the story in Olivia's thoughts to herself.

There wasn't as much character development as I would have liked, nor was it an incredibly original storyline. However, I enjoy cliches to a certain extent and it's really a guilty pleasure read, because as enjoyable as spins on tropes and cliches are, sometimes it's still nice to indulge in a cliched story.

There are several times when the point of view switches from Olivia's point of view to Brax's and though most are through Olivia's point of view, I found it hard to distinguish between the points of view because the chapter titles are kind of small and the indication in switched points of view wasn't incredibly clear.

I don't really have much to say about this book, except that though it is incredibly cliched and incredibly guilty pleasure. I got emotionally invested to a point where I teared up. Guilty pleasure reads are great palate cleansers for me and after reading this, my palate is cleansed and I'm ready to dive into another book. So if you're looking for a guilty pleasure read in which a bad boy falls for a good girl and vice versa, Stupid Girl is the novel for you.
