Secret Maneuvers (Ex Ops Series Book 1)

I thought it must be a shifter book. His head and face are very catlike. It must just be the lighting.

I do not like real people on a cover. I really don't like people on the cover at all. But I do like hands or an arm or daisies or something else. I want my imagination to paint the faces. I do not want a preconceived idea based on someone else's.

This is still the scariest thread on the internet!!

My first thought was that she had the pox.

my instinctive thought was "blood spatter!"

I thought at first her hands were clasped over her mouth.

Hearts on Fire (A Valentine's Day Short Romance)

Maybe I am just looking at it the wrong way....

I didn't even read the description. Figured with that cover, it probably had nothing to entice me. I was right. LOL! He's on her stoop and has no idea how he got there. Imagine that.

Thanks, Crystal, I don't know which is worse at enticing me to read the book; the cover or the book description! Definitely a "meh" reaction!

Searching For Moore (Needing Moore Series Book 1) You know, if you're going to photoshop the black bow tie, you should change both ends... (and if you're going to use stock photography from a series that's suddenly been appearing on everything from hystericals to spy thrillers, you should be aware that someone will recognize that you half-arsed the photoshopping)

I'm the one who keeps showing everyone else their paintings. Heheh. They usually point out things that could be done better though. LOL! It's funny - some of the artwork on early Harlequins was beyond crude but it still conveyed skill, even if unfinished. Think this artist doesn't understand color v. well. Makes it look bland and well, like a relative's attempts to follow the directions of "you too can be an artist"

Definitely someone's personal art work. Don't you hate when someone you know keeps showing you their paintings & you have to bite back the comments, not to mention, best poker face!

I think she's squaring for some unknown reason that I can figure out.

Strange cover indeed. And it sounds like the book is faith-based in some form. That doesn't quite fit with the cover theme either.

And I might sound nit-picky, but is the H an Air Force pilot or is he a commercial pilot? He can't be both!

This thread makes me laugh so I thought I'd share some:

Lol: His Forbidden Mate: Bound: (Werebear & Shifter Werewolf BBW Paranormal Romance) Apparently, his forbidden mate is a polar bear? And wtf just look at the bear's face (no wonder it's forbidden). *For some reason, the wrong book ("his bound mate") is showing up but if you go to the authors bio the other one's on there.

This one is actually pretty cool in it's weirdness but it's also describing itself as "hot & steamy" so I don't think it was on purpose: BLAISE: Doppelganger-3000: BBW hot & steamy sci-fi romance

Apparently, no one else is judging these books by their covers: Grim (Tornians Book 1) and Wray (Tornians Book 2)

This book makes me laugh every time I came across it in the library: Under Attack (Underworld Detection Agency) (it's even worse close up).

Wow! I can't stand in those heels,let that a squat or a crouch? Bit bizarre for a cover! I really don't get the urge to read that one, and the cover has to get my eye for me to read the blurb!

He looks a little skinny to me.

What the... what is she doing exactly?

Hmm, talk about the man-b**bs! I'm not sure this would fit under "hard body"

Gildo??? Did someone just substitute a letter on a word??? And yeah, that cover looks like something out of a "Great Race" movie illustration!
