Cover Reveal: Hothouse Flower by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Have you guys seen the cover for Krista and Becca's new NA story about Ryke? He's such a cool dude and if you've read Addicted to You, you know all about him already ;) Let's just say that he is a wonderful addition to the cast of these awesome characters and I can't wait to read his story. This is a stand-alone, by the way. And here's the pretty cover and the synopsis:

Title: Hothouse Flowerby
Authors: Krista RitchieBecca Ritchie
Release Date: February 2014
Cover reveal organized by: YA-Bound

Ryke Meadows, meet Daisy Calloway ... she’s all grown up.
Twenty-five-year-old Ryke Meadows knows he’s hard to love. With a billion-dollar inheritance, a track-star resume, and an alpha-male personality—he redefines the term likable asshole. But he’s not living to make friends. Or enemies. After months helping his brother through rehab and sobriety, he just wants to free climb three of the toughest mountains in Yosemite without drama or interruption.
And then he receives a distressed call from a girl in Paris—a girl that he has never been allowed to have.
Daisy Calloway is eighteen. Finally. With her newfound independence, she can say goodbye to her overbearing mother and continue her modeling career. Next stop, Paris. Fashion week begins with a bang, and Daisy uncovers the ugly reality of the industry. She wants to prove to her family that she can live on her own, but when everything spirals out of control, she turns to Ryke to keep her secrets.
As Daisy struggles to make sense of this new world and her freedom, she pushes the limits and fearlessly rides the edge. Ryke knows there’s deep hurt beneath every impulsive action. He must keep up with Daisy, and if he lets her go, her favorite motto—“live as if you’ll die today”—may just come true.
Standalone New Adult Romance: recommended for readers 18+ for mature content 

I think that the cover is pretty darn sexy. I don't know if the colours are all what I imagined them to be for Ryke's story, but they don't bother me either. Doesn't the guy remind you a little of that guy who played Allie's other love interest in The Notebook? No? He does to me. What do you guys think of the cover? Are you excited to read this stand alone? Have you already read Addicted to You? Did you enjoy it?

  1. That moment when you recognize the picture of authors but you can't remember which of their books have you read. Yeah Addicted to You. It was actually a great read, considering that I don't enjoy NA that much. I like the cover for this one so I might give it a try. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I remember seeing Addicted to You around and being really excited about giving it a go. Hothouse Flower sounds like another great book. I haven't had much luck with NA lately, but I'm glad that you're really excited in giving a go Siiri. I really hope it loves up to your expectations. Thanks for sharing this great cover with us! :)

  3. I just saw this somewhere else, but I think it's growing on me slightly more each time I see it. Although I'm not keen on the title font, I do like the rest. Thanks for sharing, hon! :)

  4. I just went on the twins' GR page and I saw this and other books they have coming out. They sound wonderful and this one too.
    The age gap between the couple is quite wide and I'm actually looking forward to seeing how they work things out.
    Thanks for sharing, Siiri! :)

  5. That is a sexy cover! And yes, he does look like James Marsden from the Notebook, good call Siiri! James Marsden is hot, so that works well for me - I always like being able to picture an actual person while reading:)

  6. That's a very pretty cover. I like the pink and purple a lot. Thanks for sharing, sweetie!

  7. I haven't read Addicted to You, but that's one of the covers that got redesigned and that you shared with me this week, so that automatically means I'm interested :). I hope that Ryke's stand-alone (awesome!! I love that it's a stand-alone) story will live up to your expectations! (25-y-o and 18-y-o - super interesting o.O).

    I love the sort of drugged lust look of the cover - definitely gives it an additional sexy edge. I feel like the colors, though, tamped down on that effect for me personally, and I can't say whether they suit Ryke. Also, I have no idea who that character in the Notebook is. ^-- If Jenny is right, I don't quite see the James Marsden look, but he is in profile so :).

    Also, I find it quite cool that twins wrote this novel :D.

  8. I like that this is a standalone! I'm still nervous about ADDICTED TO YOU, but this one sounds good. Do I have to read the first to enjoy this one? Thanks for letting me know about it!
