Summary:
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.

Wow. When you read this book, keep an open mind. I tried my best to. *shrugs* So here are my thoughts. 

Overall this book is about breaking free and a very random act of extreme craziness. Trevor, Joe and Darla are trapped. They're trapped by their parents, standards and even though it sounds really cheesy, society. Darla knows who she is. I'm pretty sure she's the only one in the book who does. She's extremely blunt, not afraid, strong and knows what she wants. But, she's also confused. She's been taking care of the family (her mom) for a while, and doesn't really know anything else. She has her escape place. And then she meets Trevor.

Trevor has no idea what happened the night Darla picked him up on the side of the road stark naked with only a guitar. Only his guitar. Along the way they fall in love/lust.

Then there's Joe. He came to save Trevor, but now Trevor doesn't want to be saved and Joe's not so sure he wants to be saved either....

When you're finding yourself, you're going to trip and fall and if you aren't going to pick yourself up, then someone has to. You can't just lie there forever.

This is a book about finding love in the most inconvenient and rather strange way. It's about what you will do to save it, what you will sacrifice for it, and how you live with it. It's about learning to be yourself and finding who you are. It's learning to see yourself in a new light. It's a coming of knowledge novel, filled with a strange love.

Sometimes you can't choose who you love. Sometimes it'll take committing a random act of crazy to figure out what you want.
