"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

"It's a story about status, desire, hope and acceptance people. Kent's way of transcending class to reveal the naked truth of our perceptions, our tendency to see everyone else as being just like us, is effective. By the end of the story, I found my own comfort level screaming. But I'd just watched these characters struggle with acceptance, not only with each other, but themselves." -- Busted Bindings Book Reviews


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."

Bizarre encounter by a young woman living in abject poverty, painful circumstances and few opportunities to escape - except via her wounded sense of humor, realism and hope. She meets a member of her favorite guys band who's under the influence of a large amount of peyote stolen from his best friend, also a member of the band. (I told you it was a bizarre encounter. Now you need to read the book I was unable to put down...)

This book is an absolute joy to read! I couldn't put it down and I didn't want it to end! Darla is one kick-a$$ chick! We all need someone like her in our lives. Watching the relationship between Darla and Trevor unfold and getting to hear it from each character's point of view, kept me absolutely riveted! I was also completely enthralled with Joe and his own personal journey. You really feel for all of these characters and become invested in the story very early on. This is a testament to Julia Kent's seemingly innate gift of being able to bring her characters to life and draw you into the story almost from word one. You will find that to be true in all of her books. It's certainly true in this one. She manages to make these characters, seemingly polar opposites, completely relatable not only to each other but to the reader. You find yourself really rooting for things to work out for these characters against all odds. This book will take you on a hilariously sexy journey that you will enjoy from start to finish!

I kind of don’t even know what to say about this book. I kind of loved it, but at the same time, there were some things that left me scratching my head. Let me start by saying that I adore what Julia Kent does. She has a flair for romantic comedy that leaves me gasping for breath and my sides aching. This book is super funny. There’s lots of laughs and scorching hot intimate encounters in this story. It’s somewhere in the connections between our three lead characters that I got a little lost. It’s easy to see Darla’s love for her family and the guilt and obligations she feels. The brotherhood between Trevor and Joe is quite clearly laid out. I just didn’t totally feel the chemistry between Darla, Trevor, and Joe. I know it’s there. I’ve seen it in later books of the series, but here it fell a little flat.
