Day Two – Best Book Covers of 2015

Boy – this one was a lot of fun to put together. I’m declaring 2015 the year of the beard on romance covers, and it can stay for as long as it wants to. I love a good beard! That said, here are my ten favorite book covers of 2015. (Same deal as yesterday. Clicking will take you to my review if I reviewed it, the Goodreads page if I haven’t.) These are all books that were published in 2015, not just read by me in 2015.


The Air He Breathes – Brittainy Cherry              The Game Plan – Kristen Callihan

These two easily tied for my favorite book covers of the year. I mean… holy moly. Would you look at those 2? Absolutely gorgeous!!

Bringing Home The Bad Boy

Bringing Home the Bad Boy – Jessica Lemmon

Tattoos? Check. Biceps? Check. Soaking wet shirt? Probably soaking with sweat after chopping wood or something? Check. Such a great cover.

Controlled Burn

Controlled Burn – Shannon Stacey

I’ll just leave this here. I can’t imagine I need to say anything else about it, do I?

Dodging Cover

Dodging Temptation – Avery Flynn

What? I like a guy in a nice, clean button-down. That’s all. I swear it!

ColdHearted Rake

Cold-Hearted Rake – Lisa Kleypas

Everything about this is so pretty. The colors, the dress, the moody cottage in the background. I haven’t actually read this one yet, (it’s up next), so I don’t know if that is actually a moody cottage back there, but it looks like it.


Falling Down – Lauren Dane

Gorgeous! The tattoos, the colors, the lipstick, all of it. I love this cover so hard, and the story inside isn’t too shabby, either.


Zack by Sawyer Bennett

I read a lot more sports romances this year than usual, and this series by Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorites. Totally for the stories. Totally. Not at all the covers.

Back to You

Back to You – Lauren Dane

I’m really adding this one because it came out in 2015. It’s a gorgeous cover, to be sure, but the other two in the trilogy are gorgeous as well, so this one is really a somewhat cheatery stand-in for the covers on the entire trilogy.


Winter – Marissa Meyer

The covers on all of these books are beautiful. I love everything about them. I’ve only gotten through the first of the series yet, but I’m so excited to get to the rest of them.

And there you have it – my ten favorite book covers this year. Did I miss any you think should have been included? Leave me a comment and let me know!

      I really need to get back to it. I listened to the first one and loved it, then got distracted by other things and didn’t move on. But I highly recommend it.
