Lusting For Covers (250) All Closed Off

April 2, 2017 Loverofromance Lusting For Covers 7 Comments

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.

But none of that matters because she’s just fine.

For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.

When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.


Why All Closed Off?

The moment I saw this cover (which was released this past week) I knew I wanted to pick it for my L4C for the week. I haven’t done a CR cover in a while, but I just love this cover so much. First off I want to mention the colors. I love her pink cardigan sweater like clothing—its so pretty and works well with the blues and whites in the cover. What really drew my eye on this cover, is the pose here. There is something so contemplating but also tender. Almost like they are just enjoying “living in the moment” with each other.

  • Curious about the ‘social experiment’ that’s about to go down in this book. 😀

  • This is a nice cover! I love her pick sweater and the way she is looking down. It is a really nice pose.

  • I like this cover! I’ve not read any of the books in this particular Carmack series, but I liked most of her books in the Losing It series. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Renee!

    Have a lovely week. =)

  • The cardigan totally draws my eye because of the color. I like this one!

  • Love the colors! 🙂

  • I cannot freaking wait for this book. What’s funny is that the day before this cover was revealed, I was venting to my friend about how long it’s taking for this book to come out. I’m so impatient. I need Stella’s story!

  • Haha, great minds think alike — I have this one in the folder for another week! 😀 Love the cover and cannot wait to finally get their story!
