Stupid Boy by Cindy Miles
(Stupid in Love #2)
Publication date: February 17th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance


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.





IT WASNT UNTIL THE next afternoon
that I encountered Kane McCarthy again. Completely unintentional, he
to suddenly just be…there. In my path as I made my way to the library. He was
talking to Cliff Barnes, president of the Kappas. As I passed by, Kane’s gaze
found mine and locked onto it, and I couldn’t seem to look away. It was brief,
yet much more intense than the first time. It was enough, and I was more aware
of him this time. Details that had escaped me before leapt at me now. Dark eyes
the color of coffee followed me, and they seemed to smolder, simmer, spear
right through me as he openly stared. His skin was pale; flawless, with dark
brows and thick dark lashes that were too thick and long for a man. A
strong-cut chin and full lips looked as though they’d been pulled straight off
a marble statue. He was the kind of gorgeous that made your eyes kaleidoscope.
At least, to me. Quickly, I looked away.
BY THE TIME I’D finished a very poor attempt at
studying for an Art test and exited the library, the tell-tale
of pending dusk had crept onto Winston’s manicured campus. The early November
air felt crisp against my cheeks as it whisked through, rustling the leaves and
sending several pirouetting to the ground to land in scattered colors on the
grass like some strange abstract stained glass. Knowing darkness would soon
swallow everything, I hurried to the campus coffee house and café that stayed
open until midnight. Inside, students sat at tables studying, their laptops
open, the light illuminating their faces and coffee cups by their sides. As I
took my place in line I selected my usual pre-packaged turkey sandwich and a
bottle of lemonade and stood, waiting to pay.
all you’re eating?”
jumped at the voice behind me and turned to find Kane there. Instantly, my
insides froze. He gazed down at me, his hands shoved into his pockets, those
broad shoulders sort of hunching toward me, almost…cornering me; his eyes as
worn and soft as the leather jacket he wore.
yes,” I answered. I gave a hesitant smile. “Not very hungry, I guess.” What was
he doing here? Suddenly I felt closed in—a feeling I avoided at all costs.
what’s good here?” he asked. His Boston accent was heavy and void of the letter
r, just like
Brax’s, only…softer. Quiet. The kind of voice that you had to pay close
attention to or else you’d miss what they were saying completely.
couldn’t believe he was talking to me. I shrugged, pretended he didn’t bother
me, and held up my sandwich. “Turkey?”
said nothing as he lifted three turkey sandwiches from the cooler; his smoky
gaze remained riveted to mine. Then, he bent his head close. “Kane McCarthy.”
looked at him then, taken back by how his voice washed over me and made my skin
tingle. I forced myself to breathe; I wasn’t used to being in this kind of
situation. Guys just didn’t go out of their way to talk to me. I made sure of
it. But I didn’t balk. I mean, after all—Kane was my potential reformation
Dare. Right? Murphy’s words rushed back to me.
Reform the barmy beast! I breathed.
Smiled. Pretended. “Harper Belle.”
his eyes softened, and as we stepped up to the cashier he gave her a nod and
inclined his head toward me. Before I could say a word, the cashier had rung
our orders up together, and Kane handed her a twenty.
looked at him, embarrassed. “Oh no, really, that’s okay, you don’t have to—”
Kane’s eyes moved over me. “Yeah,” he said quietly. “I do.”
