#Review “Random Acts of New Year” by Julia Kent

RANDOM ACTS OF NEW YEAR, Book 10 in Julia Kent’s bestselling romantic comedy series, Random Acts

Tricia’s Musings…

5 Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched CROWNS

Oh how I’ve missed this group of guys and their girls. Random Acts of Crazy are growing up, but ultimately are still living up to their name with their own brand of outrageous behaviour and risky shenanigans. Your secrets are most definitely not safe with this gang, and they seem to live by the adage that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Bearing that in mind, I was interested to see just how Liam would pull off his surprise proposal without some major catastrophe occurring, someone literally putting their foot in it, or at least having to make a trip to the hospital before he got the chance to pop the question. Let’s face it, it wouldn’t be a Random story without a few curve balls and crazy obstacles in the way of true love.

Funny, sexy and often irreverent, with a few poignant moments too, this book had me both laughing out loud and rolling my eyes. I loved Liam and Charlotte together. Although their journey has been a bumpy one, nevertheless they are made for each other. I would say out of all the couples in this series, they have  had the most serious issues to deal with and have given us the most sobering moments in amongst all the laughs.

Of course Darla almost steals the show as usual and the problems she’s having with her men could really only happen to her. Outspoken, crude and straight to the point, there’s definitely never a dull moment where she’s concerned.

I’ve really enjoyed this whole series of books. They’re definitely one of a kind; hilarious and silly and erotic, and not for the easily offended! Whilst you don’t need to start from the very beginning to enjoy this book, if you’re new to the series, I would recommend that you do read Liam and Charlotte’s story in Random Acts of Hope in order to fully engage (no pun intended!) with this one. Oh, and *spoiler* although it was touch and go at one point, I’m pleased to report that Mavis survived to live another day!

New Year’s Eve. Times Square. I booked the room over a year ago, with the view of the ball dropping. I’ll propose to Charlotte and drop to my knee at the stroke of midnight.

At least, that’s the plan.

But nothing in my life ever goes as planned. Between a last-minute gig that takes me away from her, a blast-from-the-past boyfriend of Charlotte’s, and the resurrection of Esme the blow-up doll, I have to fight for my right —

To make her my wife.

Charlotte. Not Esme. Because that’s just gross, man. What’s wrong with you?

Liam is finally ready to pop the question to Charlotte after years together, but a last-minute gig and a heaping dose of fate in the form of Darla makes the road to marriage a little bumpier than expected.

Welcome to the Random series, where people propose to chickens, snakes fall in love with blow-up dolls, cell phones become medical devices, and love conquers all, in tune and with three-part harmony.
