Choose Your Book Cover Wisely

I will always check out a man with washboard abs and an excellent physique. What normal healthy woman wouldn't? But I can't tell you how sick I am of all the book covers that have half-clothed men (revealing washboard abs) and often with equally clad women draped over them. This is the ultimate in boring and unoriginal and I can't get by these covers fast enough. Since I've joined BookGorilla and BookBub and a few others, I've been inundated by these cookie-cutter covers. I can only imagine that the contents of the book is most likely as canned as the cover. 

 I beg of you, if you want to be an E.L. James copycat writer, at least try to make your book look like it is something different and more original. Do more research. I'm sure you can come up with something that actually makes a person (most likely a woman) want to buy the book. Of course, that wouldn't be me since I'm not interested in romance novels. I read one, once.
