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.

"WOW! WOW! WOW!!!! INCREDIBLE!!!"
Wow! Okay! Where do I start? First, let me say that this book is my first introduction to Cindy Miles' work: and let me tell you she didn't fail delivering everything I anticipate encountering in a contemporary (YA) novel. This book is a GREAT coming-of-age novel; very relatable to real life situations. I. COULDN'T. PUT. IT. DOWN. It for sure, was an emotional roller coaster of angst, heartache and triumph over dark pasts. I LOVED how Cindy used metaphor's to draw her readers into each scene: I could sense, feel, touch, and taste everything the MC's where feeling with her use of 'punchy' words. (((SPOILER ALERT!!!))) The ONLY 'pet-peeve' I have with this book was the antagonist's (seemingly unquenchable) resilience: he never went away, not even when threatened. Which made me quite perturbed. I also didn't like how the antagonist (Kelsey) never got dealt with through judicial ramifications accordingly. He was just slapped on his wrist and given a pass because of his family's affluence. I guess the caveat is: this kind of (rape culture) scenario happens frequently in everyday life. A hash truth but real! All-in-all, it was a spectacular read that I thoroughly enjoyed. And I plan to enjoy many more books from this author. 5-STAR'S✨all the way!!
