message 1: by Thomas (new)

Thomas sound's good, when I choice a book I look at cover first and then read the back cover


message 2: by Diane (new)

Diane Me too. Covers are very important. That's one reason I enjoy paperbacks more than ebooks. I can see the cover frequently and learn about the characters in the story.

You sound like me. I love my phone, but only because I love to read on it.

Vanessa  Mann The cover is important.


message 5: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Ziblis I had a hard time deciding between it seemed like a good idea and unbreak my heart.


message 6: by AarthyAnu (new)

AarthyAnu Yeah, covers make better first impressions but usually I don't stop there. I look at the Cover, blurb and a few reviews (if available & all ratings) before I pick a book up to read. Covers with faces makes it easier to imagine the characters. I voted for Lauren Blakely Lauren Blakely's cover because I think the title and the man's pose sync very well together.


message 7: by Catherine (new)

Catherine I vote for the Tessa Dare book. I like her writing.


message 8: by Adaiah (new)

Adaiah The Governess Game by Tessa Dare. I love the cover.


message 9: by Maine (new)

Maine Johnstone Unbreak my heart by Lauren Blakely love the cover and title


message 10: by Kath (new)

Kath You Promised Me Forever, with The Governess Game as a very close second - actually they were probably tied! I'm glad to see more of a variety in choices this time! Yay Goodreads!!! :-) (Nice to have options in addition to bare skin, tattoos, & muscles.)

Leah Green I voted for Kylie Scott's. Mostly because it did not show the guy's face. I hate book covers that display a guy's face. What if I think he is ugly. Then I am less inclined to read it.

My favorite thing about reading is my imagination weaving in the story. I use the authors suggestions. But my imagination shows me what I want to see. I love book covers that do not try to dictate the characters to me.

I am more inclined to pick up a book with a art print drawing or bodies without faces. Or old black and white art prints with objects or animals. But it is hard for me to read books that have a cheesy cover of some douche looking guy who looks nothing like my type. You are narrowing your audience.

This is merely my opinion. No intent to offend. But if I was in a novel focus group I would choose the Scott book. Hot body without a face let's me choose his features. Which makes me more inclined to buy that steamy romance novel. We all have our types.


message 18: by Liz Smith (new)

Liz Smith I love Kylie Scott's books so that one did it for me.I must admit some covers do put me off which is a shame. But I also love a great looking torso so Will try to read more books with more torsos!!


message 19: by Rosemary (new)

Rosemary Forstrom I love Kylie Scott's writing and this cover is a winner !


message 20: by JESSAMYN (new)

JESSAMYN REINHARD I usually choose by cover also. It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time really drew me in. I have to say I chose by author on this one. Kylie Scott's books are amazing and this book was too!


message 21: by Heather (last edited Aug 23, 2018 03:05PM) (new)

Heather I had a hard time choosing between It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time and Unbreak my Heart but I went with the latter. I love both of them though! ;)
I love historical romance, but the guy on The Governess Games has a totally modern haircut. Like, 2018 modern. It ruins the historical feel completely.


message 22: by Jan (new)

Jan Barron I chose unbroke my Heart.LOVE the cover


message 23: by TCU Chick (new)

TCU Chick Unbreak my ❤️ for the win! He is HOT! HOT! HOT!!! Good selection Mrs. Blakely! Covers are very important, and it does drive my decision to whether I want to read your book. Also, I reference the cover all the time on my kindle. I would never carry around my smut for all to see.... but I will most definitely on my kindle! I even bookmark cover page so I can see the hottie on cover quickly. Here are 3 simple suggestions for my authors cover selection. You’d be surprised how many authors need to review.
1. Select model that actually resembles character in book
2. Select same model for series. Why do you change? Did the model go out-of-business???
3. Any male character with tattoo sleeve, or tattoo on UNSCARRED on abs, either or, automatically goes to model Jonny James. Don’t think twice, just do it!!!
4. We really don’t need the woman on cover. Doesn’t it cost more anyway? 2 models vs 1??? Just put him on the cover, that’s what we’re after


message 24: by Urszula (new)

Urszula Unbreak my heart is the one I love the most


message 25: by Gloria (new)

Gloria Friedrich The boy and girl on Tessa Dare's book look like children. Too young, no heat!


message 26: by Stephanie (new)

message 27: by Margaret (new)
