Saving Toby by Suzanne McKenna Link
Publisher: Outskirts Press (January 29, 2014) <--in font="" print="">
Series: Toby and Claudia, 1
Genre: NA Contemporary

Loving someone through their hard fall from grace takes a lot of grit. 

Hired on as a caretaker to the ailing Mrs. Faye, Claudia Chiatmetti is drawn into the lives of the widow and her son — a world where sadness lingers and old wounds run deep. Empathetic to the family's plight, Claudia is powerless against the emerging feelings she has for the unruly Toby Faye. Up close, Toby’s blue-grey eyes expose a need she cannot ignore. His dark past will test her fortitude and expose her to danger. Does Claudia have the grit to love Toby through it? 

Saving Toby is a powerful and moving debut novel set on the south shore of Long Island. It is the first book of a two-part story that follows the emotional and inspirational tale of a young couple's journey to find themselves.

I'd be lying if I didn't say the tatts and the glimpse of his abs. But I like the unique pose and overall look of the cover. :)

Kame's Pick:

Full Contact by Sarah Castille
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (April 7, 2015)
Series: Redemption, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When you can't resist the one person who could destroy you...

Sia O'Donnell can't help but push the limits. She secretly attends every underground MMA fight featuring The Predator, the undisputed champion. When he stalks his prey in the ring, Sia is mesmerized. He is dominant and dangerous and every instinct tells her to run.

Every beautiful thing Ray "The Predator" touches he knows he'll eventually destroy. Soft, sweet and innocent, Sia is the light to Ray's darkness-and completely irresistible. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he knows he's going to have to put his dark past behind him to win her body and soul.

Kame: This whole series has awesome tats!

I am on the fence if I will read it – last book was single POV and I am not a fan of that….

TBQ: Agreed, all the covers have been sexy! :)

Pat's Pick:

The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery
Publisher: Mira (February 24, 2015)
Series: Mischief Bay, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Nicole Lord wants to be a good wife, but there's a difference between being supportive and supporting her husband, who quit his job to write a screenplay she's never seen. He won't even help take care of their son, leaving Nicole to run the house and work full-time at her Mischief Bay Pilates studio. Can she say enough is enough without losing the man she loves? 

Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg rose to become vice president in her firm, but she wonders now whether she made the right choice. An exciting new relationship with a great guy convinces her that it might not be too late—until he drops a bombshell that has her questioning whether she can have it all. And if she can, does she want it? 

Although Pam Eiland has a beautiful house and a husband she adores, she feels… restless. She wonders who a stay-at-home mom becomes after the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise her husband brings the heat and the humor back to their marriage, but when unexpected change turns her life upside down, she'll have to redefine herself. Again. 

Through romance and heartbreak, laughter and tears, three very different women will discover that friends can become family, and that life is richer with sisters at your side.

Nice. All look good.

Anna@herding cats&burning soup said...

Oh that is a very different position Danielle. I like it! Pat that does give you a warm smile seeing them together :)

The_Book_Queen said...

;) But it's not all about the sexy men -- although they don't hurt.

The_Book_Queen said...

I know, between my cover and Pat's, I think I need a beach vacation. And Kame's, well, I just need one of him. LOL

The_Book_Queen said...

That's what caught my attention about the cover. ;)

Sophia Rose said...

I love the variety of cover love this week. Agreed that the first one is unique, the second one really sells the whole fighter vibe and the third one does give some warm fuzzies.

The_Book_Queen said...

:) That perfectly sums up our picks and why! You know we try to give a good variety.
