This is part of the book blog tour for Random Acts Of Crazy by Julia Kent, organized by Shane at Itching for Books.
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 (300+ pages, 85,000 words) 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.
Today, I’m so happy that author Julia Kent stops by to share a guest post with us.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
You Must Know About Trevor Connor
By Julia Kent
Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, once wrestled Chuck Norris and almost won. Trevor also wrote the first draft of the screenplay for the movie “Sharknado.” And he dated Kim Kardashian briefly, right before she met Kanye.
Okay, none of that is true, no matter what Trevor says, but the following three items are true:
1. On a dare, after watching this early ’80s movie with his parents called A Christmas Story, when he was seven, he stuck his tongue on the car mirror outside in December. Yes, it froze. His parents just poured warm water on it, though. No fire truck. He couldn’t enjoy any of his Christmas candy, and screamed the word “fudge” (um, not really that word….) as they pulled his tongue off. He sustained no permanent damage.
2. He almost became a bachelorette party stripper with his friends Sam and Liam (the drummer and guitarist from Random Acts of Crazy), but changed his mind at the last minute because he was afraid it would hurt his chances for passing the bar after law school.
3. His favorite food in the whole world is pad thai from a little shop called Fresh Side in Amherst, Massachusetts, a place he discovered when he went to visit Sam at UMASS Amherst.
You get to read more about Trevor in the book Random Acts of Crazy, of course, and he pops up toward the end of It’s Complicated, a new book that’s coming out on July 31, and in Random Acts of Trust, the next book in the “Random” series, coming in September.
P.S. Trevor wants me to mention that no matter what people say, he did not do anything unseemly with Mavis the chicken.
