Lusting for Covers (155): Dare to Love by Carly Phillips

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

So, this week I wanted to do something a little different, because the original cover I wasn't a huge fan of. It was all right. Here is the original cover:

It's not a bad cover, I just wasn't really lusting after it. 

Now the new cover.

I don't know, but it just appeal to me. Now about the book:

Dare to Love by Carly Phillips
Self-Pub (November 2013)
Series: Dare to Love, 1
Genre: Contemporary

New York Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips turns up the heat in her newest sexy contemporary romance series, and introduces you to the Dare family… siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal.

Since finding out his father had another family on the side, Ian Dare swore to be the upstanding, responsible man his cheating parent had never been. When it comes to his relatives, he gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. But one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts and Ian is entranced. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him extending an olive branch to the half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.

Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority and she believes herself hardened to domineering men – until she meets charismatic Ian Dare. He manages to turn a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and when he takes control in the bedroom, she’s stunned to discover she likes it. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything.

The cover is pink. Seriously, I love pinks and red, so this is like wave a red cape in front of a bull. Even though bulls are color blind. Anyway, LOVE the new cover. So, which cover do you like better and what covers are you lusting after?


  1. Sexy cover! I admit, I'm not fond of pink myself, but I think it fits this cover. :)

    I've yet to read Carly's books; must remedy that soon!


  2. Not a pink fan either, but the guy looks good. I love the older cover, though ;)

  3. I am loving the new cover. With the pose of the models and how where the wording is appeals to me. I am digging the pick as it is different. Heard great things about this author but have yet to try her.
