Add in crazy ex girlfriends, unicorns and chickens (lol, sorry can't go into detail), and strange surroundings and you have a recipe for disaster waiting to happen. First, let me start by saying that up to this point I considered Random Acts of Crazy as my favorite book from Julia Kent. Mainly because not only did I enjoy the storyline, but the book made me laugh hysterically. I was very excited when I read that their story would be continued in this book. Now that I've read Random Acts of Fantasy I think I might have to revise that opinion. From the very first page I was laughing and I didn't stop till the end. I absolutely loved the characters and how they developed throughout the book. I hope that we get another book about their journey in life after they leave the island.

    I just finished reading this book in one day it was that good I could not put it down. My favorite characters Darla, Trevor, and Joe go through ups and down. Joe being away in college is hard on him he thought that was what he want to do to go to college for law but he's having second thoughts. Also he's missing Darla and having a sexy chick across the hall isn't helping his sex drive. Trevor is loving college but the difference is he went to school at home where Darla is.

Also he's missing Darla and having a sexy chick across the hall isn't helping his sex drive. Trevor is loving college but the difference is he went to school at home where Darla is. Darla is working at the dating agency for threesomes. All of them are wondering in their heads if they love each other and running it in their heads. Then all of a sudden they all get a packet to the island Eden they want Random Acts Of Crazy to perform there and they are getting paid real well and Darla is going to get paid to be their manager. Warning signs go up so they check it out and it's legit. So they go to the island and go through things you don't want to miss. I can't give you everything but I will continue to push to have you read it. It's that good Julia Kent does it again A Must Read!!!

    I really enjoy Julia's writing and the first half of this book was hilarious! Unfortunately, I felt that the second half just didn't go anywhere.... There was so much potential to really develop the relationship of Trevor, Joe and Darla, or explore the mysterious concept of Eden and I didn't feel like it happened. I was definitely left wondering when the rest of the story was going to happen but the book just ended! Not even a cliffhanger! The most bizarre part involved Joe's ex and Darla.

I just cannot grasp why that was in the book with absolutely no consequences... Physical emotional or Legal. The interplay between the many characters and the developing and progressing relationships of all of them together is what keeps me reading these books, but this was not as engaging as the previous ones.

    I am a huge fan of this author and this series is just amazing. In this book we revisit the whole crew, however the main story revolves around Joe, Trevor, and Darla. It all starts out with an invitation to play on an island. None of them have heard of this place or are sure how they found them and their information (you still don't know by the end of the book either).

However with the money they are offering each of them each of them thinks of how this money could help in some way. This leads them all to accepting Amy is back in this one as well because Sam is allowed to bring a guest and the assume that she will be with him. Sam isn't letting Amy away from him for any longer than he has to so of course she will be going. What they find on the Island of Eden is a place where everyone is accepted no matter what your preference might be. All can't run smoothly for the crew or we wouldn't have a story LOL. Darla has never ridden in a plane and has a slight freak out. Joe's mysterious ex shows up and sends Joe into a panic. Trevor and Joe want Darla to know their true feelings about her but are both a little afraid of a possible rejection. There is so much that goes on in this book and I don't want to ruin any secrets. True to Julia's form you will laugh, you will want to punch someone, and you will connect with her characters and not let go. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone but you should read the random acts that come before this first just so some of the parts make sense.

    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......

The people who have read the previous books from RA are well aware of the author's unique writing style: a mix of crazy and funny.

It felt like everyone was on drugs - ok, so at some point some of them were but seriously I couldn't tell the difference from how they normally acted! The most sane thing about the whole plot was the island! It felt perfectly fine and normal! The story felt like it was dragging during the first half. I mean, half way throughout and they are still at the airport??? The only thing that had happened before was them getting their letters!!! And then after that it felt rushed. There wasn't any real development between Joe, Darla and Trevor besides them admitting their feelings and finally having DP! And even this felt rushed! Maybe it's the fact that the author constantly gives us the thoughts of all three characters that makes the story lack in movement, spontaneity. The insight to their minds, no matter how colourful they are, seems to have the effect of stagnation rather then helping the story along.

    First, I'll start with this book way way better than the first. I skipped the second story in order to keep the characters narrative. I wasn't disappointed. I dont know much about this Eden Island series, but I loved the H+h+H- Joe is still Joe, a big a- hole. Trevor still amazing. And Darla... one of the grate heroine I read in a long time.

    I really don’t know what to say about this book. It’s absurd, it’s silly, it’s a bit like a car wreck in that once you see it you can’t look away.

I love that this book shows us Darla, Trevor, and Joe getting real and getting serious about their feelings for one another.

    This series has me laughing out loud with each installment!! I love that we get more Darla - she is a gem of a character. The band is on a private island / resort for a show, oh, and it's a sex club. What could go wrong there? The love Trevor and Joe have for Darla is amazing. She's not a cookie cutter character, not a waif. She's a real woman with no inhibitions and no filter. Trouble comes when Joe's ex shows up on the island. What will Joe choose?

    The band has been invited to the island of Eden which they find out is a sex island. They see all sorts of different sex acts going on and learn that everything goes and that they can be themselves. We never learn how they ended up on this island as it is invite only. What makes them so special other than two of the members are in a threesome relationship with their band manager? This book almost felt like it could be a standalone and I thought it was actually a .5 in the series.

    A struggle I think this is a brilliantly written book-but I struggled with it. I love Darla I think she is an incredible character but that said, I just couldn't come to grips with this island plot. I wouldn't give up because I knew that Darla's vindication of being loved and her realization of self worth would prevail and it most certainly did.

    Read as part of the INVITATION TO EDEN series. A quite busy read that I think was meant to be humorous but came across as crazy silly. Didn’t connect with any of them really. Unsure as to the horribly rushed ending and everything that happens. Not these three getting their heads on straight but with Suzy. Why the hell would she be offered a job after what she did? Now that was nuts.

    Crazy Fantasy Island Romance I wanted a light hearted read and this story delivered. Nevertheless, it had a serious core and moved the Darla/Trevor/Joe relationship along. The next book in the series sounds amusing too.
