 (Stupid in Love, #2)
by Cindy Miles
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.

 Excerpt

“Who’s that with Brax?” I asked cautiously, studying the two with a close eye. “It looks like they’re arguing.”
Olivia continued to watch the exchange. Then she sighed and looked at me. “They are. Well.” She laughed lightly. “Brax is. Sort of. It’s his older brother, Kane McCarthy. From Boston. They’ve been brothers since they were kids. Grew up in the same foster home for a while and have been joined to the hip ever since. Kane...kind of surprised Brax yesterday. He sort of just showed up at the observatory where Brax was helping me clean the scopes.” She glanced at me and gave a wan smile. “A love-hate thing, I guess.”
Kane McCarthy. Ever since our brief encounter the day before, my thoughts kept drifting back to him. Something about his dark stare and confident posture burrowed into my subconscious. More than once during classes, I’d thought about him. His smooth voice, his quiet stare. That easy smile. And I’d been the one to send him to the observatory. I watched Brax throw his hands up, run them over his head, then push them onto his hips again. He took a few steps, then turned back to his brother. Meanwhile, Kane simply stood. Staring at Brax. Calm. “Why is that?” I asked.
“Well,” Olivia explained. “Brax is still on probation with the baseball team from all that trouble last year. He can’t afford any more. At all.”
My spine stiffened. “Is that what Kane is? Trouble?”
Olivia looked at me, and her wide eyes softened. “I hope not, but it’s kind of looking that way.” She sighed. “This is the first time I’ve met Kane in person, but Brax has talked about him a lot to me. Brax loves him like crazy, but...” Olivia smiled. “They both grew up in a hard, unimaginable life on the street. Brax escaped. Kane unfortunately didn’t.” Her gaze moved back to the brothers. “Kane has been in trouble before. Running numbers.” She looked at me. “Brax says that’s what he’s probably here to do. Football season, you know.”
“Is he going to start school here?” I asked, alarmed. “Or just numbers?” My gaze returned to Kane and Brax.
“I honestly don’t know,” Olivia answered. “He’ll be staying with Brax for a while, anyway. Brax will try and talk some sense into him. And you’re aware of Brax’s method of talking sense into someone.”
My gaze moved to Olivia. “Is Kane dangerous?” I looked at him again. Still standing quiet while Brax moved around, throwing his hands in the air, shaking his head. The whole while, Kane just watched his brother.
“I’m positive Kane himself isn’t dangerous,” Olivia answered. “Don’t get me wrong—he’s been in his share of fights, so Brax tells me, and can hold his own. But I’m afraid of the numbers. That’s not only illegal. It’s dangerous business. And he was asking Brax about Kappa House.”
The Kappa House? I continued to watch the brothers for a moment, lost in thought. Until an idea formed.
What if I could reform Kane? Although his demeanor wasn’t that of a bad boy—at least, not like Brax, anyway—if he was a street-wise, number-running guy, he was bad in my book. I could steal him away from the Kappas and they’d suffer a loss. Which was pretty much the idea of the Deltas’ private Dare.
Should I? Or...could I? Did I even have that kind of nerve? My eyes found Brax’s brother once more. I’d most definitely have to give it some serious thought.
