Stupid Girl by Cindy Miles 
Publication date: May 13th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance



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.

What to Read Next...

From Cindy Miles, bestselling new adult author of STUPID GIRL, comes the next installment of her blockbuster Stupid in Love series – STUPID BOY. 

Brax Jenkins and Olivia Beaumont are the most envied couple at Winston College—but the so-called “virginity dare,” orchestrated by Brax’s old fraternity, almost tore them apart. Now, a new dare is taking shape, and it’s sure to set the campus ablaze with crazy new rumors and chaos. 

Winston’s “It Girl” Harper Bell isn’t just president of Alpha Delta Phi—she’s also a master at keeping her ugly past a secret. So, when the Kappas’ dare hits closer to home for her more than anyone realizes, she devises a competition of her own as payback. Three sorority sisters will seek out a notorious bad boy, train him to be the perfect boyfriend, seduce him almost to the point of no return, and promptly—and publicly—break his heart. Always up for a challenge, Harper targets the biggest player she can find: Brax’s wickedly handsome foster brother Kane McCarthy. 

But, Harper discovers there’s much more to Kane than girls, games, and partying. His easy smile belies the quiet, old soul reflected in his deep brown eyes. All it takes is one night, one secret laid bare, and one kiss from Kane to shift Harper’s world on its axis. Suddenly, the girl who’s always walked a straight and narrow path can’t think of anything else except losing control.

I love books. But I love movies, too. Combine the two? WOW! I’m THERE! Of course, there are times when the two clash: you like the book better, or the movie didn’t do the book justice. That sucks! There are just so many wonderful, fine details you find in a novel that just can’t cross over into a movie, not to mention the fact that when a reader engages in a story, they perceive things, even in a slight form, different from another reader. But I do love when it comes together!

I adore all of the Harry Potter books. I ADORE all of the Harry Potter movies. A-DORE! I think that while there is so much contained in the books, so many fine details and magic, the movies really did do the books justice. There absolutely couldn’t have been found a more perfect Harry Potter. A more perfect Ronald Weasley, or Hermoine Grainger. There just couldn’t, in my eyes. Professor Snape? Couldn’t have been anyone other than Alan Rickman. Absolute magic in my eyes.

JAWS. I read the book (much to my grandmother’s dismay) and loved it. The movie? Well it was the very first summer blockbuster, and for a reason. Classic fabulousness, that’s what. Yes, it varies from the book. But it did so in ways that didn’t bother me. Not at all. Those characters came to life on the big screen, and Sheriff Brody, Quint, and Matt Hooper couldn’t have been more perfect. My son and I have movie quote wars constantly, and JAWS is always one of our go-to’s. ☺

THE SHINING. Good Lord! So perfect! LOVED the book. I mean Stephen King is by far one of my heroes! The movie was a thriller that still gets me to this day.

What I’d like to see be made into a movie? Lately, I’ve read BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA by April Genevieve Tucholke and man, would I love to see that to film. It’s a great book that really stuck in my head. I’m reading the sequel now, BETWEEN THE SPARK AND THE BURN. And probably MRS. PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN by Ransom Riggs. AWESOME BOOK! That’d be a cool movie, too!

  2. I also really enjoyed all the HP movies. I don't expect the movies to have 100% of the book's details either that's not really possible. And BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA would make such a fantastic movie! I loved that book!

  5. There are so many good movies that have led me to great reads. If I read the book first, I'm almost always disappointed in the movie.
