Simon & Schuster's Exciting 2013 New Adult Releases: Covers Revealed!

I think most of you have probably noticed how much I've been loving contemporary romance over the last few months, it's been a nice change for me because I've been so focused on anything paranormal for a few years now! I'm a huge fan of all the fantastic New Adult titles that we're seeing come through at the moment so I can't wait to get my hands on all of the new books Simon & Schuster have lined up for us over the spring and summer. I received an email yesterday revealing all of the fantastic new UK covers for some very exciting books that are already proving very popular in the US so I wanted to share them with you today (you can click on any of the images in this post to see a larger version of the covers).

I'm a HUGE fan of Simone Elkeles, I absolutely love her Perfect Chemistry series - those Fuentes brothers are seriously hot! - but I also really enjoyed Leaving Paradise (read my review here) when I read it back in 2010. I don't think that Return to Paradise has been published in print in the UK before (I certainly never found it anyway) so I'm really excited that we'll be able to buy it soon. Both of these stories are available as ebooks from TODAY and there will be a print bind up of both books published sometime over the summer. It's been so long since I read Leaving Paradise that I will definitely be re-reading it before Return to Paradise but I can't wait! What do you think of these covers? Sexy aren't they!

On the 11th of April S&S are publishing Going too Far and Forget You by Jennifer Echols. Jennifer is an incredibly popular contemporary author who writes wonderful romances. I actually read Forget You as part of a book tour about 3 years ago and it was a fab book that I'd actually quite like to re-read (read my review of here). I love the new cover though and since I don't already own a copy of the book I'm going to have to make sure I end up buying a matching set!

I already posted these fantastic new covers for Abbi Glines's Sea Breeze series (Because of Low, Just for Now and While it Lasts) but I'm including them again just in case you missed them (click on the pictures to see them in a larger size). These stories are already available as ebooks but the paperbacks with these snazzy covers will be in shops from the 25th of April so make sure you keep an eye out for them. If you've read the Vincent Boys series you'll know that Abbi excels at creating sexual tension between her characters and she writes great make out scenes too so I have high hopes for these!

I've heard so many good things about Steph Campbell's Grounding Quinn series that I can't wait to read it! Delicate and Grounding Quinn will both be published in the UK on the 9th of May so we have a little while to wait for these.

You may already have come across Crash and Clash by Nicole Williams but they will be in shops with these gorgeous covers on the 6th of June. I've had Crash on my wish list for ages now so I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy!

So which of these books are you most excited about? Do you have a favourite cover? If you've already read any of them please let me know what you thought of them (you can always leave a link to your review/s in the comments).


  1. It kind of annoyed me that the cover for delicate is essentially the cover from skin deep by Laura Jarratt

  2. I hadn't noticed that Kirsty (I've not read Skin Deep yet!) but I just checked and you're right. It looks like exactly the same picture, just different colours
