Now, you know my mama’s a gambler (sweeper, whatever....), so I guess I got to blame her for a little of this.

When the band got invited to do a big gig here in Las Vegas, I was so excited. Really excited. And when we got here, I was dazzled.

A little too dazzled. I blame the lights and the money and does Vegas pump a scent through the entire town that makes you think you’re

One of the funniest books that I've read this year. Darla's antics had me crying with laughter, I had to stop reading a few times to catch my breath. I love the dynamic between Darla, Joe and Trevor which was in this book a little but I would've liked more! Las Vegas was a great setting for this romp, only there can you find the weird and wonderful event that Darla finds. Loved it!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

I re-read some of the series before starting on RaoC on Tour: Las Vegas (which is what I shall be dubbing this - because #RaoCROX), but not all of them - however, I remembered enough that I got every single callback that got mentioned in this installment.

Speaking of which, I believe I'll start there. One of the joys of the Random books is the callbacks. Like little easter eggs (in this case literal eggs) to the

I have been a fan of Julia Kent since the beginning...she hooked me with her Billionaire series and followed with her Obedience series. I have read every Random book in the series and immediately fell in love with Trevor, Mavis, Darla and Joe! You can read this book as a stand a lone but you would appreciate it so much more if you read the series in order! This book had me laughing so hard that I had tears in my eyes and had to stop reading just to collect myself! This book takes place for the m ...more

I have been so excited for this book! I freaking LOVE Darla! She has gotten me through some rough times in my life and if you haven't read any of the Random books, then you need to start at the beginning, well...you don't really HAVE to and most of these books CAN be read out of order, but this one you need background to enjoy to the fullest. Well, that's my opinion anyway, but if you decide to check this one out, then a guarantee that you will find yourself downloading the rest of the series.

This is a continuation in the Random Acts of Crazy series by Julia Kent. I'd recommend reading them in order. This can be read as a stand-alone book, though a few sentences in the story won't make a lot of sense without the background.

Darla, the manager of Random Acts of Crazy, books the band to be an opening act on the Las Vegas strip. All the girlfriends are going as well. This book is packed with humor and Darla's version of crazy. She is stunned by Sin City and gets herself into a lot of tro

For those readers that are considering reading this as your first in this series, I highly recommend that you at least read Book 1 first. It is hilarious, one of the funniest books I have ever read. It's the world's introduction to crazy Darla Jo Jennings, Trevor Connor, and Joe Ross. And Mavis. By the time we get to this book, out trio have matured somewhat over the three subsequent years. So, while this adventure of Darla's was absurd (of course) I didn't think it was wildly funny. (It was bet ...more

ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
I love Darla + her brand of craziness.
You can never know what is going to come out of her mouth.
This time she is in too deep.
She gamble away all the band's money. You heard me. ( All the money )
Since she is in Vegas, what better placed to win all that money back.
( one way or another )
You will have to read the book to find out what kind of solution Darla came up with.
Super hilarious!
It is a must read!

What’s the most difficult genre to write well? I’d nominate romantic comedy. It’s really tough to create a story that is simultaneously funny and sexy, without pushing the balance so far toward the ludicrous that you lose the heat, or getting so serious about the bedroom interactions that you forget to make people laugh.

Julia Kent’s got this skill down cold. Random on Tour: Las Vegas evoked chuckles on almost every page. At the same time, the erotic scenes between Darla and her two rock star lov

Julia Kent does it again in a new Random book starring Darla, Trevor and Joe. It took me a long time to read this book but only because I kept stopping to wipe my tears from laughing so much throughout the whole book. I had to read excerpts to my significant other because I was losing it every other page. Darla is.....Darla and if it can happen to a person, it WILL happen to her.

The band is finally finding great success and Darla is the glue that holds everything together. During this journey f

Why have I not read any books in this series sooner? I have to go back and finish the previous books still but I am kicking my book whore ass for not having had read these sooner. Random On Tour is a standalone so if you are like me who hasn’t read the previous books yet don’t worry you can still read this one with no issues.

Wow, there was a lot going on in this book, and I loved every minute of it. Darla is a complicated character because of where and how she was raised, but we've seen her adapt to the different lifestyle she now leads with Trevor and Joe. What makes Julia Kent romantic comedies so good is the depth that she provides each of her characters and how she seamlessly brings them all together to create hilarious, LOL stories! In each installment of her series, she continues to provide more depth by revea ...more

When I heard that Julia Kent would be releasing another installment of the Random Series, I was excited. I missed the gang and their antics on the road to musical fame. I don't know how Julia Kent keeps all these crazy characters straight, but I'm glad to see that she is writing about Darla, Trevor, and Joe. If you enjoyed Julia's silly sense of humor in the other installments of the Random series, you will not want to miss this one. Darla is attempting to wri

Julia Kent is amazing!

This is Random On Tour: Las Vegas written by Julia Kent. There are very few authors who can make you as happy as Julia Kent. She knows how to write and pulls you deep into her crazy twisted world. There is no way to read one of her books and not find yourself smiling and even laughing out loud. In this book, we happily find ourselves back with the band Random Acts Of Crazy as they find theirselves going on a tour to Las Vegas. Darla, Joe, Trevor and the band are some of my

I feel like I've come so late to this party. I've been a devoted reader of the Shopping series, but this is the first I've read of Random. And one thing I've learned is that I have to go back and read everything that's come before this. There are lots of inside jokes that I need to know the story behind them. I spent so much of my time while reading this absolutely howling with laughter. Then there are these tricky little emotional truths that sneak up in the text and bite you in the butt. Thing ...more

Welcome to the wacky world of Darla! Random on Tour: Las Vegas is the next in the Random Acts of Crazy series and as usual, when it comes to Julia Kent and these guys, there is a lot of fun, hysterical laughter, loving, thought provoking, poignant moments that are described so vividly, you think you are there. There is also, of course, toe-curling, hot sex a la Joe, Trevor and Darla style. To get the main idea of the story, a sheltered mid-western girl from a backwater town, is let loose in Vega ...more

I have read everyone of the Random books by Julia Kent. As with the other books, this one follows in the same crazy funny, wacky theme. There were many moments in the books that I had to reread scenes from laughing so much and missing my spot. Also, reread just to absorb the actual canniness of this author. I have always wondered about where Julia Kent comes up with the scenes in her book because they are so out there. The words flow so easily off the page and the storyline is so flawlessly smoo ...more

Darla and Joe and Trevor are back and I didn't realize how much I missed them! This book is laugh out lout, try not to pee your pants, husband looking at you like you are nuts funny. It is written in a way that it can be read as a standalone, but there is a lot of crazy mentioned that happened in earlier books in the series.

Success is within sight for the band as Darla has arranged for them to be an opening act in Vegas until a little too much fun at roulette leaves her looking for a way to recoup her losses.

She has been in a relationship with Joe and Trevor with three years and they couldn’t be more different. Joe is moody and unpredictable while Trevor is the calming force in their threesome but will she try to fix the mess on her own or will she allow her guys to help her out of the situation?

Pure kooky, sexy entertainment!!

While this is fairly deep into the series, this is my first read of the series. I can tell I am missing some references, but never felt lost or confused by jumping in here.

This group definitely has strong character traits which come across very easily and include interesting extended family dynamics. This makes for an interesting and entertaining read. Also a quick light read. Interestingly enough a “character” in this book – has “published” a PNR story the same d

Darla and all the Random guys are back and taking Vegas by storm like only they can! Julia Kent gives us another wonderfully hilarious yet surprisingly touching offering. Told from Darla’s, Trevor’s, and Joe’s point of view, this book delves further into Darla’s complicated psyche and the relationship between these three. Although, you could read this book without having read any of the prior Random books and enjoy it tremendously, there are quite a few areas in the book that harken back to prev ...more

If you've read Julia Kent before you know everything she writes is awesome, and I mean EVERYTHING!. This series gets better and better, you feel connected to everyone in RAOC; and I say everyone because by now they feel like real people, "my people".
Seeing Big Bold Beautiful Darla so raw and vulnerable was a delightful as well as insightful experience, one that could teach a lot of lessons while laughing your heart out. Not to mention the depth & growth in Joe and ho

As always with Julia Kent books this was 'laugh out loud' funny. I was happily reading (in some rare sunshine ) in the garden when I realised that my neighbours probably thought I'd lost my mind.
It was great meeting up with all the characters again. Without giving anything away, Joe came into his own in this one. The situations that these characters get themselves into cover all emotions. You laugh at their predicaments and cry with them when life sometimes gets the better of them but you are a

Another hilarious bit of Random. Julia Kent's imagination for these characters and their lives is pure gold. One minute I was laughing out loud then soul searching as Darla cried. This story is pure Darla magic. Her goofball antics just make you smile. The band has "made it". They are really something now they've landed a gig opening in Las Vegas. That's how Darla sees it anyway, coming from Ohio. What transpires leading up to show time has you laughing out loud. Joe and Trevor must have the pat ...more

I had a problem connecting with the characters. It's the 9th book in the series and the first book I've read. I would highly recommend reading the others first so you can get the back story. That being said the book was a funny story. Darla at times made me think of her as not being able to handle herself then other times she could. She dealt with alot of stuff that went on in this book. Joe and Trevor are pretty funny characters that both love Darla. And there were scenes that i found very amus ...more

Darla and the gang are back for book 9. They are invited to play on the Strip in Las Vegas. They scramble for flights and getting their equipment there on time. What they don't expect is what happens when Darla eats some chocolate and hits the casino. Her first time gambling in a Vegas casino doesn't go they way she wants. What happens next is wrong and so right at the same time. What shenanigans does she get up to? What happens when the band finds out what she did? Find out in this awesome read

The band is finally breaking it into the big time!!

The Random crew is traveling to Vegas to open for a successful band but as with any time Darla is involved, there's crazy antics, a little bit of drama, and a ton of laughs. From the very first page, I was laughing hysterically but there were definitely some spots where I was sure I was going to cry. I love Darla, Trevor, and Joe (even though I often feel a little bit of a love/hate for Joe a lot of the time).

Although you can read Random On Tour: Las Vegas as a standalone, I recommend ready the early books in the series first. There are many references that will make more sense if you do.
Filled with humor and hysterical situations this books will have you laughing out loud at the crazy thoughts and predicaments that Darla finds herself in once again. Thank goodness she has Joe and Trevor to support, understand and love her through all of her antics.

Got to love Darla and the Random crew

Thank you Julia Kent for another great Random read. You don't have to read the previous books, but it helps.
Darla's first trip to Vegas is a dozy. And for her what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas. From real animal butt plugs to chickens on leashes, get read to laugh your way through this adventure. Random Acts of Crazy never lets you

Darla strikes again. This is laugh out loud, side splitting funny. Would could possibly go wrong if Darla and the gang get a major gig in Las Vegas? We have our hot guys from Random Acts of Crazy, Darla working on her shifter romance book, a fetish trade show at the hotel they stay in and casinos. Pick this one up!!
