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.

The Koffee Crowd Review
Loved Stupid Girl so much. NorthEast Boston boy meets SouthWest sassy Texan girl and a lot of smiling and crying. The book is mainly told from Olivia's point of view with very few chapters from Brax's pov. I love it when books include their male lead's pov beacuse it allows the reader to have a full grasp on the characters and their personal story.
The story starts a year in the past, with a traumatic event in Olivia's life. Immediately after, we fast forward to present day, when Olivia is about to start college. That one event shapes so much of who Olivia is. Brax runs into Olivia on the move in day of college and tries very hard to catch her name. Brax is a hot with his Boston accent and the way he cares for and is protective of Olivia what's not to love about this guy. I fell in love their banter, their texts, and just how honest and real they are with each other.
Great story, great writer and I can't wait to read Vol 2. Stupid Boy
