[Coffee Shop Talks] Covers I Would Never Want to Be Caught in Public With!

Favorite books with covers I would never want to be caught in public with!

I'm not usually one to get embarrassed by book covers. While I'm not a fan of shirtless man covers or the cheesy designs that many romance novels have, I can't say that I would be ashamed if anyone ever saw me reading them. Erotica is a bit different for me. I couldn't just sit in public flaunting a BDSM design or a naughty threesome cover.

Back in 2011 I read Be With Me by Maya Banks. Hated the cover. But I loved the redesign that Berkley released last year. You would never guess that I was reading a story about a woman who has an open sexual relationship with her 3 male best friends.

Here are a few books that I've enjoyed that have covers I would want to hide.

Our guest blogger this week is Michelle @ Because Reading Is Better Than Real Life!

LOL... I feel ya. Thank goodness for the Kindle/ereaders!!!! Back in my paperback days, I was an expert at strategically placing post its on the cover. They have longer ones that perfectly hid most of the cover of a mmp. Better than a covering the whole book and more discrete looking :)

All of which is why I like to read on my Nook or Kindle :)

I agree about the Maya Banks cover. I like the original Bared To You cover though

Yeah, you do have to be a little careful with some of those erotica covers. For the most part I'm good with PNR and UF covers but those erotica can get a little racy!

Those covers I might hide now Lol but only from my kids ;)
Thanks for having me this week! It has been a lot of fun!!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Hahaha. Yeah, there are several covers that just can't handle daylight in public. LOL! Great picks!

LOL. Yeah . . . I don't think I'd want to be caught with The Bunny and the Bear either. I was going to say I wouldn't care about the Sylvia Day b/c it's so well known, but then I thought about creepers and creepers getting ideas, and yeah, NOPE.
