Publisher's Summary

Only fools fall in love...

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.

Emotional rollercoaster

I really liked the story line of this book. The story has a dynamic aspect of a young woman who survives a trauma while dealing with additional sidesteps as she tries to reinvent herself. Both the male and female lead have a nice background that's expressed well. It helps you want to root for both characters. I will sometimes purchase the Kindle version to reread, however, this book is a little steep for what I normally pay. I plant to re-listen without the Kindle purchase.

The narrator is ok. I love her voice for the male lead who has a Bostonian accent. You just sort of fall a little more in love with him. The girl, not so much. I can't tell if it's the way the narrator reads her story or if it's the actual way she's written. Either way, you want to smack her a bit. It causes something to be lost in terms of the connection with her. I would try something from this narrator again to test which way it rolls.

Simply terrible

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This was so bad that around hour 7 I gave up. The boyfriend is simply sleazy, and a caricature of a foul-mouthed tough guy. The "humor" is at a fifth-grade level: "She belongs in a loony bin. cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs." The narrator gamely tried, but wasn't up to doing either a Texas or a South Boston accent. Having lived in Houston, and near Boston, I can tell you neither was even close, and they kept blending into each other. And the supposed cowgirl expressions were excruciatingly trite. The worst thing was it was extremely repetitive. It was a 6-hour story crammed into 10-plus hours. Wish I could get my money back. Did I mention the logical lapses?

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'll look for something else narrated by Shannon McManus. Not only is she excellent, every story I've listened to that she's done has at least been very good.

Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Evans’s performances?

No, thank you

What character would you cut from Stupid Girl: Stupid in Love, Book 1?

Great narrator.

Love Elizabeth Evans' talent for accents... very impressed! I wasn't sure I liked the story at first, but I'm really glad I pushed through. It was a great read.

Suprisingly Good!!

the story is surprisingly good...at first I read the summary and thought it was alright, but what drawn me to actually purchase the book was the title 'Stupid Girl'.

but once I start listening I just couldn't stop.

Elizabeth Evans did a great job!!

Twilight style story line

Nice story but not very original. A cross between twilight (sans vampires) and the movie she's all that.
