Cover Thoughts

I always forget to leave thoughts on cover reveals! Hmm... Well, looking at the cover of Ruin, I get the paranormal romance or urban fantasy vibe. Dude is hot, though! That creepy house makes me think horror or some sort of ghost story. But that's just me, and we all know how skewed I am when it comes to books and covers.

Would I buy it?

I still haven't jumped on the New Adult train yet, so probably not. If you've read it and loved it, convince me that I need to read it!

What do you think of the cover? Would you read the book?


  1. I like the creepiness of the cover background but I think the guy didn't need to be shirtless. I get it's a romance novel and summer but would a plain white t-shirt that's soaked in sweat be so hard.

  2. It sounds good. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway opportunity.
