Lusting for Covers - Lauren Dane's Inside Out

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.

Being the cover hussy that I am, this meme is just one for me!
The cover that caught my eye this week (when mentioned on Twitter) was the one from Lauren Dane's Inside Out.

Why this cover? It's one of a series of three books with all wonderful covers. In fact, most of Lauren Dane's books have the best covers out there. This one is especially hot because of the delicious tattood back side of the cover hunk. The pose the models are in is pure anticipation and I think the female is beautiful. Last but not least: I like the colorfulness of this cover very much!

Back Blurb:

Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she’s spent each day putting her life back together. Once vibrant and outgoing, she’s needed to reclaim the best parts of who she was while retaining the hard won lessons. There hasn’t been room for any romantic entanglements, even if she were ready. Still, it didn’t mean she had to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark and Tattooed himself.

Security professional Andrew Copeland isn’t quite sure when his jones for the lovely and decidedly skittish Ella developed. He’s known her for years, has watched her triumph over the pain she’d been dealt. Cope is no stranger to women, but he knows the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to her is different than any attraction he’s had in the past. Determined to get Ella to let him in, Andy does the one thing he can think of to get close: he offers her hands-on training in self-defense.

While Ella’s sure he’s just being nice, the prospect of being able to touch him and gain the tools to push away the last vestiges of her fear is more than she can resist. Soon enough, Cope shows Ella his feelings are far more than friendly and re-ignites something deep inside her. Before long desire and love turn them both inside out.
