Top Ten Tuesday | All About the Visuals: #hubbahubbacovers

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish, and today’s topic is all about the visuals. Now, for me, I can think of very few book covers I love to drool over more than the ones that are sporting abs. I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again – if I’m perusing Amazon or Goodreads and I see an ab-tastic book pop up, chances are I’m going to at least click on it to check out the blurb. It will be the blurb that sells me, but the abs’ll get me there! So, in celebration of chiseled-ness, I bring you ten hot books covered with abs!

quarterback-draw  10 Quarterback Draw by Jaci Burton

I haven’t read a book by this author, and to be honest, there is absolutely no reason why. I love the blurbs and hello – abs! This cover is lickable.

him  9 HIM by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

Tell me the truth – you saw this one coming, right? Like I could put together a hot ab list and not include Wes’s abs. Maybe you think they’re Jamie’s, and that’s OK. Reader creative control and all that.

on-broken-wings  8 On Broken Wings by Chanel Cleeton

Dude…Easy. That’s all I’m going to say. That’s all I can say, because just the thought of his book still brings me to tears.

sunset-park  7

Sunset Park by Santino Hassell

I’m including this one because I’m reading it right now, it’s hot as hell, and all I can think about are hot Grindr hook-ups. That makes me smile. Maybe it will you, too.

reapers-fire  6

Reaper’s Fire by Joanna Wylde

There’s just something about that vest parting over those abs that make this cover so sexy!

a-season-of-ruin  5

A Season of Ruin by Anna Bradley

What is it that even the hint of abs is sexy? I don’t know, but this cover proves it’s true!

forbidden  4

Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins

Sexy abs are nice, but so are sweet abs. And there’s something about the way this man’s hand is gently resting at the heroines elbow that gives this cover a sexy-softness that I adore.

trailer-trash  3

Trailer Trash by Marie Sexton

Oh, look. Angsty abs. Pretty much any chance I get to draw attention to this book, it’s going to happen. Fantastic read that’ll most likely gut you.

claimed  2

Claimed by Elle Kennedy

All that needs to be said about this one is that the hotness that graces the cover also graces the pages!

taking-him-down  1

Taking Him Down by Meg Maguire (a.k.a. Cara McKenna)

I can’t tell if these abs are flexed or not, but who the hell cares? They’re still sexy as hell, and as it’s Meg Maguire, you can rest assured that the book is, as well

So, I’m not sure this qualifies quite as a Top Ten, because there are so many hot covers out there, it would be impossible to narrow it down. But it’s at least a bit of eye candy for those of us who enjoy those #hubbahubbacovers!

Do you like ab-tastic covers? If not, what are some of your faves?

  1. I must have somehow been attracted to the same thing in a cover because I’ve read most of those. LOL. I follow the same pattern in that if a cover grabs my eye, I will check the blurb and see if the interest continues.


  2. What great covers you have picked here. I love me some sexy abs on those male models. I love the cover for Fobidden as well. Jenkins has always had great romantic covers. And Jaci Burton has the sexiest covers ever. It just makes me want to go find a sports player.
