Description

NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING NOVEL! 346 pages

"It was funny and irreverant like Wallbanger, but deep and moving like Barbara Elsbourg's Strangers. That is a tough mix to pull off. I should warn you though, this book should come with a surgeon general's warning: 'Do not start this book if you have any where to be, anything to do or need to pretend to be remotely interested in conversations with breathing human beings that are not currently also reading this book.' Enjoy!" -- Amazon reader review

"Random Acts of Crazy one of the best if not the best books I've read in a long time. Could not put it down. I laugh so hard my side hurt. Thank God I didn't pee myself!! Congratulations on such an awesome read." -- Goodreads reader review

"Be warned, this is not your mother's romance. It's hard and gritty and smacks you in the face like that burst of heat when you first open an oven door, which is exactly what makes it a  refreshing change from a typical sticky sweet love story." -- Featured Staff Pick from Cat at All Romance eBooks

Description:

I never intended to pick up a naked hitchhiker wearing nothing but a guitar. A guitar. Really. I don't collect guys like that (don't ask what kind of guys I do collect), but when you spot a blonde, tanned, sculpted man with a gorgeous smile and his thumb poking up and practically begging you to stop – you stop.

And I definitely never thought I'd be staring into the bright blue eyes of Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, an indie rock star I followed like the slobbering fileshare fangirl I am. How he came to be nude and lost six hundred miles from home is quite the tale, but how we fell in love is even more unreal.

Because someone like Trevor Connor, headed to Harvard Law next year, isn't supposed to want someone like me, a rural Ohio chick majoring in Boredom at Convenience Store University who is all curves and frizzy blonde hair and manners so unpolished they have sharp edges that make you bleed.

But he did.

When his best friend, Joe Ross, the bass player for Random Acts of Crazy and a man who makes Calvin Klein models look like Shrek, drove eleven hours through the night to rescue him, though, it got real complicated. It's one thing to like two different guys and be torn.

What do you do, though, when maybe – just maybe – you don't have to choose?

    I read it in two days and I can't wait to start the sequel! And I love that a town a few miles from my hometown was mentioned in the book!

    It’s all started with my sister, busting out laughing, while reading just the first few pages. So I downloaded the book to see exactly what was so funny (she wouldn’t tell me). I laughed so hard at so many points in the books. I absolutely loved it.
  • Love her CRAZY!!!

    One of funniest books you will ever read. It truly is crazy, off the wall funny. The characters are all pretty captivating. Who picks up a rock star hitch hiker in the middle of no where Ohio? Thus the random act is crazy however turns out to be life altering.

    Julia is a fun author to read. Her billionaire series are awesome. I didn't care for this book as much but am willing to give book 2 a read since I enjoy her writing so much.

    This book was hilarious! My love of a funny, sassy mouthed, confident woman is met in this story. While I'm not interested in their lifestyle, your story was well written, and for my full attention..sign me up, I'm hooked.

    I loved this series. I so loved that darla said whatever came to her mouth and she owned it. I also love when a story not only keeps you involved but makes you laugh so hard you fall off the bed (it's happened with several of Julia's books)

    Darla is awesome, crazy, and just plain hysterical. Couldn't put this book down it was just that funny. Couldn't wait to read the next few books that I devoured those just as fast. All of Julia Kent's books are on my pre-order list.
  • Disappointing..

    Reading this book is not something I will continue. It is very random, and I feel as though the author is trying to prove herself by using so many large words. I'm a well educated woman, and read many books in a month, but considering this is a fictional novel, I didn't expect to have to highlight and define a word or more a page in order to understand what the author was trying to convey. Couldn't get passed the first chapter. Won't be reading this author again.
