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.”

Review

After reading this story, it is indeed crazy haha. What is this story all about? I’ve read the Random Acts of Hope which was the fourth book of the Random Series and I was totally in love.

I love the idea of meeting or should I say picking the hottest hitchhiking boy band vocalist butt naked on your way home. My! She doesn’t even know that he’s the vocalist of her favorite band she’s been fangirling ever since. What happened next was really, really, really funny. I can’t even suppress my laughter while writing this review, haha. 

I don’t really want to drop some spoilers but it’s hard not to with this story, so please bear with me hehe.

After picking the naked hitchhiking guy on her way home, the attraction was too unbearable for the both of them. But dang! I guess destiny doesn’t want them to do “it” lol. It was even funnier when they were caught in the act with her mall security guard ex-boyfriend, haha lol.

Oh man! Julia Kent really knows how to make you laugh so hard. The scene dragged on further until they reached her place and finally did “it” without any further delay. And btw, haven’t I mentioned the awkward meeting with her mother while he’s almost as naked as the day he was born? Haha

Well, all happened so hot until his friend Joe, who is also one of his band mates, fetched him the next morning. It’s obvious she’s really into him too, and I have to take what she said that he’s as perfect as a god lol. Darla and Joe’s first meeting wasn’t that pleasant as he’s been a jerk to her about being poor and all. That actually ticked me off and I really wanted to kick his balls for it. But what happened next was hilarious.

I thought the part where Trevor and Darla who was caught in the act by her ex who is a security guard pointing a shotgun at him was the funniest, but nah! The one with the chicken totally won the funniest scene ever! I don’t want to elaborate more, where’s fun in that eh? So I’ll just give you a clue and that’s Mavis Connor haha.

All were explained eventually, on what happened to Trevor and how he came to Ohio which was so far away from Massachusetts. It’s been pretty obvious too how Trevor is so attracted to Darla but what really surprises me a bit was how the then douche Joe became attracted to her too. You thought that’s it? Trevor saw Joe and Darla kissed. My! I thought there’s going to be a punching scene but surprisingly it didn’t happen. Actually, it went well that Trevor even sang a song he wrote about her in the bar’s open mic. My! The lyrics were really sweet!

After the funny story telling on what happened to Trevor after being high as fck for eating all those drugs, the most awkward thing happened. My! I really don’t want to spoil or disappoint some of you who wanted to try this story but I think I’ve got to drop this major spoiler. I’m not really sure, but I guess I’m going to do it? Haha.

Well, this story includes a threesome. But man! I have to say that it was the hottest scene I’ve read so far. Surprisingly, it wasn’t lewd like what I expected it would be. I dunno, it’s just so passionate and oh so hot.

The ending will absolutely leave you guessing as it’s one of those open endings, no idea who between the two she’ll choose. Man! I guess they’re both sharing her? Haha. Trevor appearing nude again to you was one thing, but Joe? The almost awkward silent type Adonis without any clothes off on the side of the road with only a guitar? Man! That’s already too much of an ending isn’t it? Haha.

For the main characters, I really like Darla. No BS, just her being herself. I love how relatable her character and how courageous she was of taking good care of her disabled mother even though she’s kind of living a wasteful life in that cramp province. But I’m happy that in the end, everything turned out great especially to her bestfriend Jane.

Trevor on the other hand was hot as heck. Man! Even without the introduction, I’m already eyeing him. I love musicians especially those who can sing and play a guitar at the same time. I also love how understanding he was especially that he grew up, not maybe that rich but not poor either, when he found out where Darla is living and why she’s driving such a car.

And lastly, Joe. My! I never thought that a “good son” could do such a thing. My oh my! I’m not really sure what to think of him and Trevor after that threesome scene. They genuinely like the same girl and are willing to share her. Like huh? Well, I like Joe, I like his description especially when Darla said he finally kissed a god lol. But even after all that, I’m still for team Trevor, haha. He doesn’t just have a sexy name but I love a guy with a little streak of bad boy in him.

I’m not really sure what made me like this book, was it because of the story, the threesome (good Lord no! Haha), or was it the numerous times this book made me laugh? Honestly I’m still torn whether to give this one a 3 star or 4 star. But heck, I’m giving it 4 stars and that’s it!

This story was not really perfect or wasn’t that good compared to the fourth book as it was inferior when it comes to depth but it really entertained me. It has threesome scenes I know, but it didn’t make me feel violated or disgusted. I dunno how the author did that, but this story was incredibly well written. This story was narrated alternately from the main characters so you won’t totally feel left out. Many of you might have known that I’m a dialogue reader so it wasn’t really a surprise when I was skipping some parts while reading this story, but that doesn’t mean it was boring. Actually, it’s far from one.

If you want something that will both give you a sexy and funny story, then Random Acts of Crazy is absolutely perfect for you. It’s the first book of the Random Series but you can absolutely read it standalone.

Edit: I just found out there’s some sort of continuation of Darla, Trevor and Joe’s story. My! It’s book 3 book 5, and book 7 of the Random Series and I can’t really, really, really wait to get my very own copies!

    I also try not to read the summay of a book. I will read it initially when I am deciding if I want to read it but I usually forget it by the time I actually start reading the book. I am glad you enjoyed it and that it made you laugh.

    This sounds hilarious! I love the concept, and I’m glad it was well executed and that the author was able to keep it steamy without crossing a line. So happy you enjoyed this one and that it kept you entertained, even if it did lack a little depth. Great review! 🙂
