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.

My Thoughts:

"Like see many other lessons in life, you just have to try it an see what you experience."

While driving down the road Darla comes across a naked hitchhiker sporting a collar and a guitar. Figuring this guy was harmless because really were would he be hiding a weapon? She drives him to her house. The attraction is instant and then Darla comes to find out why this guy is familiar; he is in a band that she loves. When calvary arrives to bring Trevor back home his band mate, Joe,  comes to find that their ride back is damaged and they are stuck till they can find a mechanic.  The attraction between Joe and Darla now is hard to get away from, can Darla really have an attraction to two guys?

At this point I'm not even sure how to write this review. Many times though out the book I've been wondering what the heck am I reading. Steamy scenes were great. The story I guess was good but in the end I couldn't help what next. The thing that bothered me most was that Darla picks up a hitchhiker and a naked one at that. Who walks around like that? I would assume the guy is crazy and could be some weird rapist. Just because he doesnt have weapons don't mean he can over power her. The thing is this isnt the first naked hitch hiker shes picked up. I get that shes trying to be nice and helpful, but why at that risk. Couldn't she get someone else to help him? couldn't she pick up a friend to be there for back up? Couldn't she at least have a weapon for safety. I mean what ever can happen will? Just that bugged me a lot. This isnt the first trailer girl book that I've read that comes across a rock star but this girl just seems to be the stupidest girl I've read about. I mean the story was good, just like the many others I've read but grr something is off about this book. Other then that there were a couple of interesting and funny points that I couldn't help but chuckle to myself. I loved that there was more more then one point of view. The story line was a bit off that left the readers questioning what happens. I just realized that this book is apart of a series so maybe answers will come from the next book.

This book was 3 stars for me. I wish that there was more to this book. Maybe I'll check out the next book, maybe I wont. There was the surprise factor to this book to keep the readers wanting more but I don't know something was off that I'm not sure I want to know what happens next.
