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 University—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 emotions ablaze--more than ever before.

Winston’s “It Girl” Harper Belle isn’t just president of the Deltas--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 womanizer on campus and--unbeknownst their “mark”--secretly train him to be the perfect boyfriend. 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.
First Line:"Harper? Are you in here?"

Review: I found myself enjoying Stupid Boy more then I thought I would. The book is the second in a series but can easily be read as a standalone, although I have not read the first one which is titled Stupid Girl and really wish I did read it before reading Stupid Boy since the two main characters from that book are around a lot in this one.

Harper Belle and Kane McCarthy are total opposites on the surface. Harper is president of her sorority, wealthy and very prim and proper. As for Kane he is the bad boy, he is into illegal stuff and has a not so good reputation. Yet when we get below the surface of what these two portray to the world we see that they both are just putting on a mask of sorts. Harper and Kane both went through some extremely crappy stuff at a very young age that has scarred them pretty deep. Miles really does an excellent job getting us to understand Harper's psyche with all the flashbacks and the nightmares, I'm not going to lie to you it wasn't an easy read and not in a bad way but it really gets to you to know that all this stuff happened to Harper when she was so damn young. Same with Kane, Miles did a great job in showing us his past which helped me connect with him better as well.

I liked the message Miles was sending with this book. Don't judge someone based off their outer appearances. A person may seem well put together but who knows what is going on underneath and then you have the "bad boy" Kane but we soon learn he had a really good reason behind it all and he was actually very far from the persona he portrayed to the world. So yep...never assume anything about anyone.

Overall I found Stupid Boy to be a highly enjoyable read and I'm actually looking forward to the next book and plan on reading the first book in the series soon.
