Here's my candidate for the week:

Avoiding Mr. Right by C.J. Ellisson
Publisher: Red Hot Publishing (June 3, 2013)
Series: Wild Side, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Erotica)

Carla Johnson thinks issuing orders to a lover will keep her heart safe and leave her in charge of her own destiny. Afraid for Carla’s future, her best friend Heather implores her to change her self-centered ways, handing her a list of love life mistakes to steer clear of:

1. Casual Sex
2. Friends with Benefits
3. Avoidance of Intimacy

Carla ignores the list—unwilling to face she might have a commitment problem. Until she invites a co-worker to her place one night. She instantly regrets the hum-drum sexual encounter and discourages the accountant from pursuing her.

Andy Shea refuses to become another lover the feisty blonde dumps. It'll take a patient man with a strong hand to unlock Carla's sexual awareness and win her heart. He’s up for the challenge to convince her he’s the one—and eager to prove this number cruncher won’t make a boring bedmate.

It's the pose--who doesn't want to be pushed up against the wall like that once in a while? Love it! Saw this cover a few weeks back, and I quickly put it on my list, especially since more than a few readers told me how much they enjoyed book one, Vanilla on Top. Have you read this author before?

Awesome pick! I love the lighter tones of colors.

For once, it works--usually I'd call the color tones used boring, but not for this cover! :)

The_Book_Queen said...

You're welcome! :)

Wickedly Delicious said...

Sexy pick! I am a huge fan lately of lighter tone of colors. Especially in the New Adult Genre. Last few seem to have the same lighter color theme.

Hope you are had a beautiful weekend
