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.
Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3
When you decide to go off to college, you hope that your past doesn’t follow you especially if your last year of high school has been the worst year of your life.
When Olivia arrives at Winston College, she is literally knocked off her feet by Brax Jenkins. Little does she know that one collision will change her life.
Brax and Olivia are polar opposites. She’s a total star gazing geek and he’s the superstar baseball pitcher. Olivia is given fair warning about Brax from her rookie, but the more time she spends with him the harder she fall, and one morning he walks away with no rhyme or reason.
Olivia’s family is priceless. In fact, it made me think of my own. My grandpa was a huge part of my life. He was my biggest fan. Jilly is the same for Olivia. In fact, he stole my heart.
Another character is Kelsy and he’s a freakin’ prick. I’m telling ya; I wanted to beat the shit outta him myself, but what goes around comes around.
Stupid Girl is about a girl who takes a mistake from her past, presses on towards her future, gets slapped in the face, picking yourself back up, and makes her dreams come true.
