    Excellent

    Excellent read! This is a sequel to Stupid Girl. While it can be read standalone you'll really understand all the characters more if you read both books. Kane McCarthy is new on campus but his bad boy persona grabs the interest of Harper Belle, Winston's perfect girl. What they both want is to keep their ugly pasts firmly in the past. What they need is each other. This is an excellent story and the characters are incredibly intriguing. I definitely recommend this one.

    Love this series!

    Harper's been playing a part for as long as she can remember, and to everyone around her, she comes across as nearly perfect. So when she suggests what she thinks will be an essentially harmless but pointed revenge on the cruelly mischievous fraternity across the street, her sorority sisters are quick to go along with it. But her chosen bad boy to be reformed isn't what she expected, and before she knows it, she wants no part in any scheming that has him in the center. He seems to get her and get to her like no one else, and while she's never really known any kind of happiness, when she's around Kane, that light and fluttery feeling keeps rearing its head. But Kane's got things to hide as well, and no matter what Harper had originally planned for him, she soon finds they have more in common than she ever expected. But...It was better than the previous book, but it still had some editing issues (mixing up homonyms like rein/reign, riff/rift), so really all that's needed is a good line editor, and it'd be just about perfect. Oh, and while I'm at it… Why did the detective show up? He had info on Harper's parents' case, but she apparently never followed up on it, so what was the point? It's like someone decided to cut out a scene or two and forgot to delete his appearance. The Verdict: While I had some issues with the first book, none were really with the story itself, so I figured I'd give this one a shot. It was a lot heavier on the angst and past abuse than I expected, but it turned out to be a pretty great read. Harper has had an absolutely awful life. After the cops found her hiding in a cabinet after her druggie parents were murdered, she was sent to live with her grandmother, a woman who was the very definition of evil. Harper was provided for , but the psychological abuse left invisible scars, & she's spent most of her life in guilt and fear. She puts on a brave face at college, letting everyone think she's the perfect student, perfect sorority president, and all around perfect girl. But she has only one real friend, and she hides her past in shame, always fearful that her grandmother will take away what little happiness she's managed to grab onto. Harper's sorority is incensed by the antics of the frat across the street, the same frat that hurt Brax's girlfriend Olivia and has since claimed another victim. In retaliation, Harper proposes that their sorority pull their own dare, but because they're not into humiliating anyone, they go with picking three bad boys associated with the frat and reforming them. And that's where Kane comes in. Kane's past is just as ugly, though in a completely different way. Horribly abused as a child, he was put into foster care when his father was sent to prison, and that's where he met Brax. All grown up and responsible for himself and the sister he tried to protect so many years ago, Kane's found his way to campus, and while Brax isn't happy about Kane's illegal gambling business, he hasn't turned him away. Kane is incredibly perceptive, seeing something in Harper that tells him she's not perfect; she's broken like he is. Brax apparently sees the same thing, but he simply gives her space and looks out for her. Kane, however, is drawn to her, and even though he knows his time in Texas is only temporary, he can't stay away. Their romance is incredibly sweet, and I love that Kane isn't your typical white knight. He's just as damaged as she is, except he's a bit more in control of his life, whereas Harper's still reacting to the damage her grandmother has inflicted. But he's patient and kind, and they're able to trust each other with a few of their secrets. Harper's growing feelings for Kane lead her to call off the dare, but things like that never do quite go away, do they? I sort of expected the dare to be a main component of the story, but aside from initially bringing Harper and Kane together and later causing a rift, there was a lot more to the book than Greek life mischief. Harper was so closed off from everything and everyone that she didn't win me over very quickly, but given her background, her behavior made sense. She wasn't living; she was existing in survival mode, and it took someone who had an equally terrible past to bring her to life. The distancing she did made the chemistry between her and Kane feel a bit rushed, but I think I just loved Kane enough to buy into it. And fortunately, the angst wasn't pushed too far toward the end; I think they'd both been through enough of that already, so the ways they reached out to each other even when it seemed things might be over were really great to read. All in all, Stupid Boy is a really sweet love story, and while it can most definitely be read as a standalone, I would suggest reading Stupid Girl first, if for nothing else than to fall in love with Olivia and Brax. ***FicCentral received this book from Xpresso Book Tours for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Read it in one sitting

    This is the second book of Cindy Mile’s Stupid in Love series and I have to say I liked Stupid Boy more than I thought I would. And why? One name sums it up: Kane. I really, really loved Kane. At first, I was a little skeptic, due to a few stalker moves, but he turned out to be a strong male character and his actions through the book made sense considering his upbringing. Maybe, what made me like him even more, was the fact that he was completely different from Brax. Both Harpers and Kane’s childhoods were heartbreaking but perfectly described. The first pages of the book about their pasts, got me totally hooked and made me read it in one sitting. I liked Harper too even though, at some point, all her “can’t, shouldn't, wouldn't” were a little over the top. Still, I can understand, after a childhood like hers, that some things were way too hard to overcome. There were a few things that I didn't quite like. For example, Murphy was too much of a stereotype to me; the surprise visit the detective made to Harper had no follow up, which made absolutely no sense to me; sometimes the story felt a little rushed and the ending came a little sooner than I expected it. The bottom line is that I liked Stupid Boy better than Stupid Girl. Don’t really know if there’s going to be another book in this series, but if there’s a third I’ll probably check the synopsis and then decide if I’m reading it or not. “We were alike, she and I. We shared demons. We shared fears. We’d share the healing, too.” I received a copy of this book for free, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
