Lusting For Covers #55: Bentley (Hawthorne Brothers #1) by M.L. Young

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

Here's what you do:

1- Take the graphic (code for it is below) to use on your post. Remember to give credit to the original host (TBQ).

2- Choose your own book cover that you've fallen in "lust" with in the past week. It can be new, old, a reprint, or even a book that is not yet out-- it's all up to you! If you find a cover that catches your eye, then showcase it on your blog, and let others see the pretty covers out there.

3- Copy the direct link to your own L4C post into the Mr. Linky widget at the bottom of this week's post and allow others to come and see what you picked!

4- (OPTIONAL): Besides posting the picture of the book cover you chose, it's nice to provide the book summary, title, author, or a website link for the book. It's not required, but it can help your readers' to add more books to their own list! A brief "Why I choose this cover" is also appreciated, but not required. 

Also, if you wish to post your links or talk about L4C on Twitter, please use the tag #LustingForCovers so that we can easily find all tweets about it. :) 

This Week Lusting Covers Is:

 Bentley (Hawthorne Brothers #1)

By M.L. Young

Bentley Hawthorne and his brothers ruled our high school—and my fantasies—years ago. I thought I moved on from that crush when I graduated, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. There’s something dangerous about a Hawthorne boy, and the most dangerous one is Bentley.

He’s tattooed, has slicked-back hair, and can make any woman’s engine purr like a kitten. He’s wrong for me in every way, but sometimes it’s better to be wrong than right.

I’m just a shy, introverted girl trying to get through college who’s dreamed of being with Bentley Hawthorne since I first laid eyes on him in high school. I know I shouldn’t have these feelings, but when my car broke down on the side of the road late one night and he was there to save the day, how could I keep away?


I’ve never been one to deal with relationships. I had one once, but it ended in heartbreak, and I don’t want to take the risk of that happening again, instead dealing in casual one-night flings.

I’m the oldest of three, the one in charge, the one my brothers look up to. I can fix anything mechanical, especially cars, so when I came across a stranded woman one night, I pulled over to help, thinking I was being a good citizen. Little did I know what she was capable of, especially when it came to affairs of the heart—my heart.

Though I have my problems, I know I can’t let this one get away, no matter what challenges come our way—and boy, will they come our way.

This story features alternating POVs by chapter. This is a non-cliffhanger HEA and the first in a trilogy where each book focuses on a different Hawthorne brother. Each story is independent of the others, and they can be read in any order.

This one really looks and sounds absolutely amazing that I totally love and enjoy brothers books!  I got this one for free on amazon! What do you girls think about the cover?
