Here's my candidate for the week:

Body Games by Jessica Clare
Publisher: Jill Myles (July 11, 2014)
Series: Games, 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Annabelle Tucker is still reeling from last season’s Endurance Island, when the man she loved played her for a fool. When producers ask her back for a new season it’s the last thing she’s interested in…until she hears her ex, the gorgeous but duplicitous Kip, will be there. Revenge and a grand prize? Yes, please!

But someone’s there to throw a kink into her plans. Someone tall and cut, and with the sexiest gray eyes. Jendan Abercrombie’s on an opposing team, but it doesn’t mean that Annabelle can’t lust after him, right? She’ll just have to save all that lusting for post-show, when she’s free to follow where her loins lead.

When a tribal twist puts them both on the same team – naked – will Annabelle be able to resist his very apparent charms? Or will she have to vote Jendan out to save her game?

This is simply a fun, sexy summer cover! I'm not overly found of the color choice, but otherwise it grabs my eye!

Kame's Pick

Forbidden Kiss by Shannon Leigh
Publisher: Entangled: Covet (July 28, 2014)
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Jule Casale is the perfect daughter. Obedient. Trustworthy. Loyal.  With her high profile Italian family, her public image must be impeccable. And now to gain the respect and position she's desired in the academic world, she hopes to discover the unknown artist behind a masterpiece of Renaissance art.

Rom Montgomery seeks the unobtainable: forgiveness. Those who could grant him relief are dead. Instead, he wanders across continents and through time searching for salvation and the means to right an ancient wrong. But when Jule comes knocking on his door, it's the closest he's ever come to finally finding redemption.

The closer Rom draws to correcting his past mistakes, the more his secrets threaten to destroy the woman who might hold the key to his future.

Where to Buy*:h

Kame: WOW – I have a thing for backs….I won’t request this book as it seems to have a sci-fi element and that just isn’t for me. 

TBQ: Oh yum! Yeah, I'm a fan of sexy backs like that!

Both covers are hot in different ways. Yours is just smoking hot with who knows what kind of things could happen. Kame's I don't, but I like it.

The_Book_Queen said...

Tingles are always a good sign! :)

KAMEBookReview said...

Tingles are good - go get it Anna and tell us how it was!

Anna@herding cats&burning soup said...

Lover Of Romance said...

Such beautiful covers!! I adore them both....I agree with Anna on the second one though, I love a nice sculpted back....I wouldn't mind owning that LOL

The_Book_Queen said...

*nods* I wouldn't mind it either . . .

KAMEBookReview said...

Have you read anything else by her? I just checked her out on GR and this is a cover much improved from her others - her website says erotic romance

Sophia Rose said...

Both are great choices! The first is definitely worthy of Lusty Cover, but that second...yeah, him too. ;) I love Sci-Fi so I'll probably check that one out.

Red Iza said...

Very good choices ! The first cover's pose is very sexy, you can't help imagining what happens next. And the other has a sexy back, who can resist that ? ;)

Anna@herding cats&burning soup said...

I've not! This was the first I've seen of her. And wow to the other covers. Night and day!
