Lucky Cowboysss ??

This one is in additional to the @ycramer’s earlier post about teen’s book covers.
I was just at the book store earlier and saw this book shelf with teen’s books. I was amazed with all the covers and really wondered what kind of stories they all are(PG-13?). The covers went wayyy too farrrr. I will never want my daughter (or son?) to read anything like that! yucks!

    It’s the curse of “winning formulas” for cover expectations. Certain books are doomed to have certain obvious covers due to their content for the sake of recognition. Of course, when you see something like this everything falls apart because they become nameless masses next to one another. Can you imagine how unsexy these would be if they had nothing but simplistic typographic treatment? You’ve gotta know from looks alone that you’re getting into the kink-zone.

    I’m surprised these were with the teen books, these are very clearly romance novels. As far as covers go I never really have any expectations for the design of romance novels. I almost expect them to have Fabio on them.
