Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent comes the newest in her Random series:

You ever really think that you'll win the lottery? Meet Mr. Right? How about two Mr. Rights?

Somehow the universe is handing me everything I want (except for that lottery part...), and I don't like it. Not one little bit. Because just when you get all your dreams handed to you on a silver platter, that's when an airplane dumps its sewage on your house. Or your mama's diabetes takes a bad turn. Or your mobile phone gets stuck in your hoohaw.

(What? It happens…)

Boring old average me got everything I wanted already, moving from small-town Ohio to big-city Boston to follow my heart. So when the fancy invitation offering me a pile of money to come with the band, Random Acts of Crazy, to perform on an island resort and be their manager arrived, I thought it was a cosmic joke. Enough money to help my mama get what she needed, five days in sunny paradise, and a shot at greatness for the band? Unreal. One big shoe was waiting to drop. On my head.

Just like no one really ever finds a naked man wearing only a guitar standing by the side of the road hitchhiking and ends up falling in love with him and his friend and moving halfway across the country for true love, no one gets an invitation to come to what turns out to be a resort where people make what me and Joe and Trevor do together look like a chaste peck on the cheek. But...

Well.

I guess these things do happen.

To me.

    I received an advanced copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review.  All I can say is Julia Kent has done it again.  This book completely rocks!  Oh Darla, Trevor, and Joe... how I have missed you.  If you’ve read Julia’s previous books in this series, you know how gifted she is in character development... and as such she has you completely wrapped up and invested in these characters’ lives almost immediately.  You don’t have to have read the previous books to enjoy this one (but some references really won't make sense to you, and I really highly recommend the previous books "Random Acts of Crazy", then "Random Acts of Trust"), but if you have read them, then I’m sure you, like me, have been not so patiently waiting for more from these characters.  Julia certainly delivers!  This book centers mainly around Darla, Joe, and Trevor, but Liam, Sam, and Amy (and I believe she’s carrying her phone in her purse this time as opposed to other more interesting areas) also make an appearance.  This book has it all...  romance, laughs, thrills, love, unicorns, and of course it’s beyond HOT!  You will not want to put this down once you start reading.  This latest in the “Random Acts” series certainly does not disappoint.  If you’ve read the previous books in the series, you will absolutely love this one!  If you haven’t read the previous books, well... you will still absolutely love this book!

    I just found this author when I started to read Top 100 Reasons to Love boxed set and I have read everything by Julia in that series (Billionaires Series), and now two in this series plus purchased the next one in this series. If you love menage books, and love it when an author writes so well that you can put yourself in any scene, you will love Julia Kent's books

     book for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book and found myself wondering if there really was a place like
    Eden.  This resort seemed very fun all fantasy come to life.   This part of a larger series and I plan to read more
    books the Multi author Eden series.   I love Darla more with each book in the Random series.  I like Trevor but Joe
    is awesome and this book was about him coming to terms with his life and the unconventional relationship with
    Darla and Trevor.   Great fun read  will have you both laughing and crying.

    I have been a fan of Julia Kent since reading her Obedient serie

    I have been a fan of Julia Kent since reading her Obedient series. She had me hooked then and I am still a huge fan. I was honored to receive this newest book in this series as a gift from her. I love Joe, Trevor and Darla almost as much as I love Laura and her two sexy billionaires. In this book Joe, Trevor,Darla and the rest of Random Acts of Crazy with Amy included are jetted off to an island. In this book we learn more about Joe's former fiancee - crazy Suzy - Darla's fear of flying along with other surprises! I found myself laughing and gasping especially with Suzy in a cheerleader outfit with a gentleman dressed as a Patriot quarterback! I enjoyed this book which started out a little slow in the first couple of chapters but once the stories setting was revealed I found that I was finished before I knew it. I hope there will be more in this series as I feel that we are just getting started with the adventures they can have. Who doesn't love sexy rock stars and the woman they love!

    Julia Kent does it AGAIN

    Loved the continuing story of the crew from Random Acts of Crazy. Darla, Trevor and Joe and their unconventional relationship
    are back. Add in band mates Liam, Sam, and Sam's girlfriend Amy, a mysterious invitation to an exclusive island resort, a
    crazy ex-girlfriend, furries, and naked squirt gun fights and you have a recipe for disaster....or maybe not!

    Don't miss this one! Ms. Kent has another winner.

    Thank you Ms. Kent for more Darla, Joe, and Trevor! These three

    Thank you Ms. Kent for more Darla, Joe, and Trevor! These three are just delightful. Their first book (number one in the series), Random Acts of Crazy was in my top 5 novels of 2013 and this latest installment keeps the magic alive.
    It's got it all - humor, sexiness, angst, suspense. This smoking hot triad relationship is in its seventh month now and they are each dealing with their deepening emotions and how their alternative lifestyle fits into the world. It all comes to a head when Joe and Trevor's band, Darla and Sam's lady Amy receive mysterious invitations to a very special island. I don't want to give anything away, but trust me, you will adore this book and the series.
    I can't wait for more of these folks - I hope their stories go on forever

    Julia Kent has done it again! You can't but love Darla, Trevor & Joe! This book was so funny that it had me laughing out loud on several occasions. But it also showed you the love between these 3 characters. One minute you'll be laughing at Darla on the plane, hating Suzy with a passion & loving the hot sex scenes!

    This is a good book,  that seemed to have it all. A menage, psycho ex, and men being jerks. Although I think that distinction went more for
     Joe than Trevor. This was a good follow up to Random Acts of Crazy.

    If you're familiar with Darla, Trevor and Joe you know how funny

    If you're familiar with Darla, Trevor and Joe you know how funny this trio can be! This one takes the cake! I love the way Julia Kent can get my laughing so hard my husband gives me dirty looks then turns up the heat!! 

    The whole band Random Acts of Crazy is invited to a mysterious island called Eden. Included are Sam's girlfriend Amy as well as the bands "manager" and our favorite sassy Ohioan, Darla! They are expected to play the gig of there lives but the Master of the Island has a plan...

    Will the Master's plan help or hurt our favorite trio?
    Will the Unicorn ever catch that chicken??
    Who says the "L" word first?

    OK, maybe not ALL of those questions are answered. Regardless, you will be turned on and laughing your butt off with this one! Darla on a plane? BEST SCENE EVER!! Seriously I thought the iPhone in the hoohaw scene was good. You've never heard of a tie dye lesson on a plane before! Behind all this hilarity is a beautiful love story and a first time DP!

    I did receive a copy at no cost for this review but honestly I would have bought it anyway!

    Just when Darla thinks her life is just about perfect a job offe

    Just when Darla thinks her life is just about perfect a job offer for the band turns into more than a fantasy. During this time Darla, Joe, and Trevor explore their relationship and their feelings. Facing unexpected challenges they must decide if love is enough to keep them together.




    As always, Ms. Kent's writing is hilarious, sexy, and creative. You will laugh and your heart will cheer for this relationship. This is the newest in her Random Acts series and a book not to be missed. 




    Note: I received a complementary ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    MY VIEW: I have read ALL of Julia Kent's books and have loved every one of them, but none compare to Random Acts Of Fantasy.
     This book was hysterical with a little bit of douche bag,Crazy, and a lot of love.. 


              Joe Trevor and Darla have been in this relationship for 7 months.......Joe is studying at Penn which is making it hard on all of them.
    .. While Darla works for her aunt at a dating agency for threesomes, Trevor goes to school...
     Trevor convinced Darla to apply for classes at Harvard...... They are going about their life's when they get the invitation to Eden...... 
         
       If it looks too good to be true, Usually it is... Not in this case!!!!!
    When they find out Eden is a legit gig they board the plane to Eden!......
     
     While in Eden they learn that it is not your normal Resort.... They also run into some trouble while they are there.....
    Joe's past makes an appearance and its not a very good or happy thing.....
       
     I absolutely love this book I read it in a day!!!!! 
      
     I am excited for the next book that Julia Kent will release!!!
