Synopsis

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.

 

Review

I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

Stupid Boy starts at the heels of Stupid Girl, the previous book in this series. I read Stupid Girl, and that was an unbelievably cute book with hints of deep emotions and conflicts that is the signature of the new adult genre.

This book once again has all the makings of a great new adult book. The university’s IT girl, the school’s biggest player, a fraternity, and a sorority that does not back down from a challenge. A heroine and a hero who may be the most unlikely couple. All that comes together to give readers an entertaining book where the love story is equal parts sweet, angsty, and bitter.

I liked the heroine. She’s more than just a leader type or a girl with a secret. I also liked the hero. He was a complicated character but very easy to like. If the first book was about being able to stand up for yourself against peer pressure, the second book is about getting to know a person beneath the persona that society has put on each of us.

This is definitely a great book for the new adult market. I recommend that young readers read this book and forego the erotic romance, billionaires, and doms to the mature readers. This book is all about being young, having friends, and living life without the complications of adulthood. I still liked the first book better, but Stupid Boy is still an amazing book that I will highly recommend.
