I saw this book among a bunch of other romances in a waiting room i was stuck in today. The cover art ("art") really stood out. Am I the only one who bursts out laughing at this cover? Why is it so funny? Something about the muscles and the hair?

I sent the pic to my sister and she too had a similar reaction, and since this morning, nanny Jake has become an inside joke for us, guaranteed to have us snorting. Nanny Jake LOLOL

Looks like he's going to start singing Achy Breaky Heart.

That's awful! The baby looks terrified! I want to unsee it right now! Can you imagine reading this before bedtime? You should have swiped it and let us know the storyline. Uuurrgghhh!

That styling is Jean Claude Van-Damme in the Coors advert!

Evelight Thu 13-Apr-17 00:51:40

That can't be Jean-Claude van Damme? Gah he looks awful in that pic! Isn't he much more handsome?

Nanny jake looks like he's about to eat that baby!

I've now got all sorts of Mills and Boon shite scrolling across the top of my screen hmm

The Coors Light ads are him taking the piss out of himself, hence the double denim and mullet. They are very funny!

I read something a few years ago about romantic fiction no longer being about Mr Handsome Doctor ignoring Ms Nice but Shy Nurse until the last chapter when he realises that she was his perfect woman after all and proposes without ever taking her on a date. Now its about men who work hard and want to have babies grin

Presumably Nanny Jake is a nanny for a single mother who just wants to be lurved after being used and dumped by the father of her baby who ran off with her best friend. He will have been married and lost his wife in tragic circumstances and they fall in lurve after much misunderstanding including Ms Single Mother mistaking him having a girlfriend when in fact he was just meeting his sister......

OP can you please go back to that waiting room with another book and offer a swap? I NEED to know the story!

Fabio just rang from the 80s and wants his baby back.
Very good bemused expression on that child. Reminds me of the graffiti balloon coming from the baby's mouth on the Athena famous man/baby poster which said: " You're not my daddy!" grin

OMG!! How wrong could I be?!

This from Amazon...

"When Delaney McBride opened her office door, she was shocked to find a sexy delivery man with a very special package - a baby! Trouble was that the delivery man claimed that the tiny tike was homeless - and that he was the baby's nanny! Delaney wasn't exactly mother material. She had no idea which end of the diaper was up, or how to get a very squirmy baby into it. But Caleb was adorable - if a bit loud. Jake Turk was another story. Surely this man was a god of some sort - with his chiseled features and exquisite physique. Delaney wondered what he could possibly know about babies. She was about to find out - because little Caleb came with a contract - one that included Jake."

My story was better!

PyongyangKipperbang Thu 13-Apr-17 02:03:53

And dont get me started on Jake Turk gringringringringringrin

GinSwigmore Thu 13-Apr-17 02:05:14

pyong you have nailed it with that nanny Jake synopsis star

GinSwigmore Thu 13-Apr-17 02:06:54

Your story was indeed far better.
I assume the homeless baby in a box is so that Delaney can be a virgin.

PyongyangKipperbang Thu 13-Apr-17 02:09:06

And a size 4.....hmm

Mine would include Ms Single Mom struggling to lose her baby weight and him loving her anyway. He would kiss each stretch mark and say that it was a wonderful keepsake of every moment that she carried.....

sorry, had to go and vomit

.....her child.

PyongyangKipperbang Thu 13-Apr-17 02:10:28

If you found out that your new neighbours where Delaney, Jake and Caleb Turk-McBride wouldnt you move immediately?!

WaegukSaram Thu 13-Apr-17 02:12:18

Nanny Jake, so muscular and well coiffed. The book synopsis sounds batshit though.

This is my favourite ever romance cover:

GinSwigmore Thu 13-Apr-17 02:23:13

grin my lovely horse grin
Wow. That is niche

GinSwigmore Thu 13-Apr-17 02:27:13

Aww. Sulking now. I looked up that book dammit!! blush okay, I didn't think it would be full-on equus ("Oi Potter! Stop messing with them horses!") but I did think there might be a spirits animals body break thang going on. Boo. Moo.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Thu 13-Apr-17 02:27:33

waeguk - wow, that's NARSTY!! bloke with horse shoulders and head? Or what, I mean what the actual FUCK?? shockshock

PyongyangKipperbang Thu 13-Apr-17 02:28:51

The book is supposed to be very funny, not read it though. I am tempted to buy it just to freak my mother out grin

GinSwigmore Thu 13-Apr-17 02:29:00

That should say spirit-animal-body swap. My kindle clearly could not cope.

PyongyangKipperbang Thu 13-Apr-17 02:30:28

gin I was gutted when I first "Amazoned" it too and for the same reason!
