I’ve never understood who can possibly buy these, but for a romance novel to be successful, it has to be “steamy” from the moment the readers (usually horny ladies with no sense of reality) lay their eyes on it.
The covers that end up on these titillating texts, however, are often just as over-the-top as the stories they adorn, and usually feature airbrushed models in dramatically sensual poses.
When you put simple, everyday people in the same setting, it’s even harder to take it all seriously.

Would you still buy these “bestsellers” in a heartbeat?
