18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

How to join in:

-You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads, some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.

-Make a separate post for the 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow on your blog.

-Copy the button above and place it at the top of your post.

-List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’

-Place your name and blog title in the linky over on RBTW's blog post along with the URL for a direct link to your post.

-Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back. It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!-Contact Crystal at with any questions!

Question of the Week:
Do you, or have you ever, purchased a book solely based on it's cover alone?

Uh, yeah...guilty. Sometimes I get the shaft (snicker) and the book is a total bomb, but sometimes I pick a winner.


Laura Kaye-Hearts In Darkness
This book was yummy-delish and oozed sexual tension. I soon became a fan of this author and enjoy the erotic steaminess of her books. This pick alone for the cover was an awesome read and well worth it!

How about you? Have you been lucky with a cover purchase, or were you left starting at the cover because the book didn't live up to it's potential?  Leave me a comment-I'd love to hear from you!


  1. I've had both. I have had some super smoking hot covers leave all the hotness on the cover but Ive been fortunate and those are few and far between. I'm a cover-art smut :) I haven't read this book but it looks great!! And your right, Larissa is an awesome read! I miss her Demonica series but the Rider series rocks too!

      I know what you mean, and it sucks to be disappointed with the read. I love black-and-white covers more so than color, I don't know why. It just draws my eye more.
      Larissa is an auto-buy for me. I met her this past year at RWA and she is super sweet. AND very tall, lol.

  2. I'm totally guilty of it... love me a cover with some AB on it. *growls*

    New Follower!!

    1. Marie, Thanks for the new follow :) and the comment love. We cover HOORS must stick together.
      Have a great weekend!

  3. Never heard of this book but I will def. look it up. Totally off subject, I noticed you are reading Fever. I cannot wait to hear what you thought about it.

    1. Hearts in Darkness was a really great intense read for me. It was my very first review on here.
      Fever was super-freakin' fantastic: I finished it yesterday. I plan to write my review this weekend and post it this week. I am also gonna do a Q&A with the author, Joan. Keep your eyes opened! Have a great weekend! And thanks for stopping by.

  4. I still need to pick this one up, it's on my Nook wish list though! I'm totally guilty of being a cover hussy but luckily I've only had one bad read from picking a book by it's cover.
    Thanks for participating in the follow!
