because pecs aren’t just for romance covers anymore.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to see past a cover’s artwork, to see the potential of a story within its pages. Sometimes I can’t help but think, “No, I’m pretty sure this is what the story is about.”

And when I have these moments, sometimes I just can’t help myself.

But to be fair (and for those who are curious), here’s the synopsis for Anna Davies’ Wrecked. Although I badly want to rename it Pec’d. Is that so wrong? Wait, don’t answer that.

    Oh my. What’s happening with his chest skin? It looks scaley :-\ Wait.. is he a Naked Dude in Water That Could Also Be a Mermaid?!

      I don’t even know. Not sure if that’s just artifacts from a lo-res graphic or EGADS WHAT IF HE REALLY IS A MERMAN.

    • Tee says:

      Yeah this is just WRONG because the scaly thing is too distracting. I mean, I’ll totally read it but I’ll feel like I need to hide the cover!

    I can’t help thinking this is the male equivalent of all those crotch shots we’ve been analyzing recently. (Hold on, that sounds kind of weird, doesn’t it? Oh well, moving on . . .) It’s not that there’s anything wrong or offensive, per se, it’s just that your eye keeps returning to this anatomical feature like a homing pigeon. You don’t want to stare at her crotch, or his pecs, but it’s hard not to. Which is why we’ll all feel uncomfortable reading the book in public, too, isn’t it?

      I couldn’t fathom venturing out in public with this book’s jacket on (if it’s a hardcover). Never in a million years.

    I would liek to read about the adventures of his pectorals. SOLD.

    • thatcovergirl says:

      Adventures of His Pectorals! I should have consulted you first before firing up Photoshop. PS – I know what I’m getting you as a present next year!

    *snicker snicker* For some reason, the guy reminds me of Taylor Lautner. Must be the pecs. LOL.

  5. Sarah says:

    It would so get more attention as “Pec’d”

    They take a picture of this guys chest for the cover, but look, no nipples…weird? Is that on purpose?

    Ignoring (*cough*) the pecs, I have a deep-seated dislike for “central guy with girl clutching his arm” images.

    Better than “girl clutching his leg”, which is found on a few movie posters, but still.
