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 story about a humble girl, Olivia Beaumont, who had a very terrible experience during her last year of high school. She decides to escape to a college four hours away from her hometown. On her first day she literally bumps into the second year star bad boy baseball pitcher of Winston University, Braxton Jenkins. Every warns Olivia away from Brax and his womanizing ways but she decides to find out for herself what he is like. The two then fall into a romantic relationship sans their friends' opinions. But Braxton has a secret he is keeping from Olivia. One that will most ultimately be a deciding point in their relationship.

I have very mixed feelings about Stupid Girl. Yes, there are parts which are too sweet to count. Especially the way Braxton treats Olivia/Sunshine like she's the center of the universe. But, the focus on his Boston accent, how many times the author mentions pronunciation in ordinary words, it really was too much. The story in itself is very cliche, geek girl falls for the bad-boy college student. I will say, I was very intrigued towards the middle of the story when everything falls apart. Overall, it was an okay read it just wasn't for me. But I would recommend it to a friend.
