Random Acts of Crazy Blog Stop and giveaway

Random Acts of Crazy
By Julia Kent

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? As my Aunt Josie says sometimes, "It's always complicated." * 

Random Acts of Crazy is a standalone, full-length novel featuring Darla Jo(sephine) Jennings, the 22-year-old niece of Josie Mendham from the Her Two Billionaires series. It has, like many New Adult novels, an exploration of sexuality for the three main characters, doesn't shy away from mature content, and Darla has a sailor's mouth.
Dee’s Review
Okay. Where to start on this one. First of all, I love Darla. Her mouth is hilarious. They way she talks and what she says, she’s such a smart ass, a woman after my own heart. It was wonderful to read her point of views. She had me seriously laughing out loud. And even when the reality of her life is not so pleasant, she has find a way to make it that way. I love it. But also from the stand point of Trevor and Joe. Who can't relate to them? Having someone who wants to tell you want to do or plan your future. Or just be nagging you all the time. So relateable, So real.. But how will they deal??? How do they deal?? They get high of course. Today, that isn't the best idea for Trevor, or lets say the result isn't the best.

So in reading this book at first I was like, “who picks up a random naked guy on the side of the road?” Then I was all , oh yeah.. I totally would. Like she says, where would he hide a weapon but up his…*clearing my throat*.. and well, that would be uncomfortable to get out. Yikes.. totally have that mental picture in my head right now. This is awkward. 
Anyway. So Darla has this naked high as a kite guy in her car, and doesn’t know he’s the lead singer of one of her favorite bands. Then he calls his friend to pick him up. So now we are going to have 2 hotties. Ummm… welcome to her fantasy. Let’s not forget all the funny things that happen on the way. well because he's high and horny, and she's a woman with a naked man.. who wouldn't be happy to oblige. Then when she finds out who he is.. it's her rock crush. And I can laugh about all these things, because I am from Ohio.. so I can see this all happening to me. I’ve driven this highway, and next time I do, I am totally looking for naked men carrying guitars and straw hats, wearing a dog collar.

Moving on… I thought this book was just too funny. Then when you bring in the hotness of 2 rockers. The steam rating goes way way up. And Darla just doesn't know what to do with herself. I wouldn't either. She man’s up though. Go get it girl! I will say this one word. HOT!

But when she wakes up. I was pissed. Pissed for her. Pissed at them. WHO DOES THAT!! And on top of that she just made a huge life decision, and then they… GAH!!! No spoilers!! I will not give spoilers !! Anywho.. *fanning my face* It is still running through my head how hot it was. Thank you very much. You’re going to have to read to find out how this all plays out. Let me tell you. It’s worth it. The ending is so cute. Do I think there needs to be a second book, maybe not. But I'm interested to see where this goes. I give this book 4 hearts. 
About the Author
Julia Kent turned to writing romance novels after learning that she could not work as a fighter pilot because her fear of flying disqualified her. Turning to her second love, she became a dog groomer, but had to abandon that job after adopting too many strays. Writing about very real, very flawed people is a natural extension of her life and, well, her. She lives on the east coast with her partner, two small children, seventeen dogs that weigh less than fifteen pounds each, and a monthly consumption of Nutella, brie and french bread that makes cardiologists cringe.
