Similar Covers: Bra/Cleavage Shot

It is perhaps not surprising that I should have found a lookalike cover for It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Philips, since according to Jessica at Read, React, Review this is one of 25 iconic romance novel covers. I spotted The Washingtonienne by Jessica Cutler on Rebecca’s blog, Lost in Books (in a review that turned into a rant).

Have you seen any other covers that match these two?

Edited to add:

Many thanks to Tina at Bookshipper for pointing out a third similar cover: Theodora Twist by Melissa Senate, which I’ve added above.

I also found a fourth cover that matches this set (with an admittedly offensive sounding title): Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin.


  1. Ah! you forgot one!!!!

  2. Thanks, Tina, I've updated my post!

  3. Those covers don't do anything for me! LOL

  4. If only I looked like 1 or 2 !!! LOL!

  5. I think that this might be a natural progression of the parts of a female's body on the cover trend. First there were feet and shoes. Then the back of the head. Now, apparently, boobs.

    The only one of these that seems to fit with the title is The Washingtonienne, just because of the necklace.

  6. I was on a book award committee once where the sole reason for rejecting this book was the cover picture, and the word "cleavage" in the cover.
    I was bummed. I really liked the book...

  7. I've seen a similar cover ... on Victoria's Secret catalog! : )
