Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway for Stupid Boy by Cindy Miles

I really enjoyed Stupid Girl and I knew when I saw Cindy Miles was following it up with another book, I had to read it.

Title: Stupid Boy
Author: Cindy Miles
Series: Stupid in Love #2 (Companion)
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Expected Publication: February 17, 2015

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.

★★★★ 1/2 stars

Cindy Miles has outdone herself with this book.  It's my favorite so far in this series and my favorite out of all her books so far.  Harper and Kane's story is beautiful and moving.  They both appear to come from different walks of life, but painful pasts are something they both have in common, even if they don't know yet.  Something Kane sees in Harper's eyes draws him to her.  And what started off as a bet to teach a bad boy a lesson becomes so much more.

This story captured my interest from the very first page.  I couldn't stop reading and even stayed up late to do so.  I absolutely loved Harper and Kane.  I have no idea how Harper managed to hold herself together for so long.  Nothing she was blamed for as a child was her fault.  I wanted to reach into the book and give Harper a hug and punish those who hurt her.  Kane too.  That boy was anything but what his tormentor accused him of being.  Kane might have looked like a bad boy and done things that were illegal, but once I found out why he was doing them, I felt better.  I knew he wasn't doing anything to purposely harm Brax his foster brother or Olivia and Harper.  It also helped the story was told from both their view points.  

As is usual in a story where a bet is taking place, there are often times when the story can be predicted. Cindy Miles kept this from happening by inserting twists I didn't see coming.  The chemistry Harper and Kane had was wonderful.  I liked how their attraction to one another was a slow burn.  They might have first been attracted to each other physically, but once Kane realized Harper was fragile, I like how he attuned himself to her needs.  He might have taken the reins of their dating, but in everything else he let her lead. I felt that was essential to their relationship getting to the point where they trusted one another with their secrets.  I hated seeing them hurt.  

Overall, I would've liked to see a few more issued be addressed.  I would've liked to know what Harper's surprise visitor had to say to her.  Especially since the visit started a chain of events that had a lasting effect on the story. I would've liked I also wouldn't have minded an epilogue to show how Harper and Kane were doing in the future, but since there's going to be another book in this series, hopefully there'll be glimpses of them in there.  I can't wait to find out who the next book will feature and if I've already met them yet.

*Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for them in any manner.*
