Guess that synopsis

I’m sure I’m not the first one to come up with this idea BUT I haven’t seen it floating around. I thought this would be a fun idea to try and guess what a book is about strictly based on the cover. If you or someone you know is already doing this, that’s 100% great!! I’m not trying to steal your thunder by any means. To my knowledge, I haven’t seen this so I came up with my own title and decided to post it. If you want to join in, feel free to do so 🙂

I’ll be grabbing books from Google, Goodreads, friends, etc. At the end of my guess, I’ll post what the book is actually about and see how close I was. Alright, let’s get started!!!


The Book:

Nine Minutes (Nine Minutes, #1)

My Guess:

Alright, they’re on a motorcycle so I’m guessing it’s a MC romance?? I think it’s a trick though lol!!! That maybe he’s just someone who enjoys riding motorcycles. Nine minutes is throwing me off……Maybe nine minutes is the amount of time it takes for them to be in a wreck and for help to arrive?? I have no idea lol!!

Actual Synopsis:

On May 15, 1975, fifteen-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida.

From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity and a new life in the midst of the gang’s base on the edge of the Florida Everglades—a frightening, rough and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.

And at the center of it all is the gang’s leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.

So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor. Precocious and intelligent, but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity.

Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all? Part psychological thriller, part coming-of-age novel, filled with mystery, romance and unexpected turns, Nine Minutes takes readers into the world of one motorcycle gang and inside the heart of a young girl, whose abduction brought about its fall.

Verdict:

Errr……okay then. Absolutely nothing that I predicted. I wonder where the title came from. This sounds like an interesting read for sure. I just looked up the book on Goodreads and my friends that have read this book said it is WILD. AHHHHH.

A big thank you to Nicole @ Boundless Bookaholic for picking this week’s book.

The Book:

Shacking Up (Shacking Up, #1)

My Guess:

So I know this author writes a lot of sports romances so I assume this involves sports as well. Other than that, I’m going to say this is a sibling’s best friend type of romance. Where the guy falls for his little sister’s bestie. Maybe the best friend needs a place to stay and they end up shacking up together??

Actual Synopsis:

Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before.

Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick. Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet.

Verdict:

Welllllllll lol!! I got the shacking up part right but that’s hardly a win considering it’s in the title lol!!! I’m failing at these so much here lately! At least a best friend is involved so I can feel semi decent about my guess haha.

The Book:

Look the Part

My Guess:

I’m going to take a WILD guess and say this guy is a criminal or maybe a con artist? I see him pretending to be someone he isn’t and having to play the role aka “look the part”. I also think our female love interest will sniff him out REAL FAST.

Actual Synopsis:

Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.

All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.

Until …

Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.

The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.

This woman …

She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.

Still …

She must go.

Verdict:

So…..I have no idea how this title fits into this synopsis. I guess I’ll have to read the book to find out.

The Book:

The Unhoneymooners

My Guess:

I’m thinking someone gets dumped right before their wedding day. They decide to go on the honeymoon anyway and meet someone on the plane ride. The two probably hit it off right away and decide to have a week long fling!!!

Actual Synopsis:

For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetime—maybe even love—in this romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling authors of Roomies.

Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion . . . she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas.

Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo.

Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is . . . Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be.

Verdict:

Oh wow!!! I’m way off but this sounds like a really fun read. I never saw this twist coming!!

The Book:

The Right Stud

My Guess:

What a cover!!! *drools* lol!! I’m going to go with this being an office romance. Maybe this guy is the love interest’s boss and they have this intense chemistry?! OR maybe the guy is a co-worker and into the girl but she’s not interested in possibly ruining her career??

Actual Synopsis:

“The best way to get over your sh**ty ex-fiancé is to get under a shiny new stud…”

As soon as Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle.

A few stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home run—until he disappears without a trace.

Whatever. Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.

I resolve to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.

What I don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!

You see, my sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home improvement star of The Right Stud, and he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.

With a suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and renovate my old house while he films his new show.

But my roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and possible love—apart.

When push comes to shove, is Jax really The Right Stud or is he just another nail in the coffin of love?

Verdict:

DARN!! I was way off on this one!! I would’ve never guessed he fixed up houses. Stud should’ve been a clue. Well rats!! Better luck next time folks!!!

The Book:

Say You'll Stay

My Guess:

I’m thinking the guy and girl were high school sweethearts. Maybe they went to different colleges or life just tore them apart. For whatever reason, they are thrown back together and the guy wants a second chance.

Actual Synopsis:

One word.
Stay.

It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.

That was seventeen years ago.

I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.

Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.

This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .

Verdict:

Oh wow!! This one sounds really good!!! I’m thinking they were high school sweethearts and the guy seemed to want to move (college? or maybe just a new town?) and she wasn’t able to go or wasn’t interested in leaving. I’m definitely bumping this up on my tbr!!

I picked this book randomly from Goodreads. I had no idea it was even on my tbr already haha!!

The Book:

Reasonable Doubt: Volume 1 (Reasonable Doubt, #1)

My Guess:

Reasonable doubt and the fact the man is wearing a suit makes me think this is a lawyer romance. I think the man will be the lawyer and he will represent the love interest. I feel like all the evidence will point to her being guilty but together they solve the case together while falling in love. AWWWW lol.

Actual Synopsis:

My cock has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar… (Although, that’s a story for another day.)

As a high profile lawyer, I don’t have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At least it was , until “Alyssa”…

She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.

But then she came into my firm for an interview—a college-intern interview, and everything fucking changed…

Verdict:

My friend Deanna at A Novel Glimpse recommend this book for this week’s post. I’ll admit this cover didn’t give me much to go on but I think I did okay. I got the fact he was a lawyer right. The rest…..I pretty much failed on lol!!


I would love it if you guys left me some book titles for me to do on my next post!!! I pretty much failed at this round but I’m going to shake it off and prepare for the next round!!! Thank you Deanna for the rec!!!

The Book:

Sweet Spot (Irresistible, #1)

My Guess:

So my friend Nicole sent me this cover and I’m stumped. I have zero ideas what this book is about. At first glance I’m wondering if he’s in his underwear??? Or is it a speedo?? The background looks like he’s in some type of apartment though?? Probably not swimming inside an apartment.

Okay, my best guess is this guy meets a girl at her job. She probably works at a bakery or maybe a bar? He flirts with her and she confides that her boyfriend dumped her or something. Then Mr. Suave over here tells her he can “take care of her” (hence the title). BAM, that’s my guess. It’s all I got…..

Actual Synopsis:

Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.

I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.

At least it was.

Until he came along.

Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.

And then I locked myself out.

In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?

I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.

Verdict:

Okay, so she did break up with her boyfriend aka husband so score 1 point for me. He didn’t show up at her job but her house so half a point for me?? Please?? No?? FINE!! My question is, how did he see her in her tub??? I’m confused but excited to read this one!!! And the fact he laughed?! GASP!!


I would love it if you guys left me some book titles for me to do on my next post!!! I pretty much epic-ally failed at this round but that’s okay!!! Thank you Nicole for the rec!!!

The Book:

Miss Fix-It

My Guess:

First off, WOWZAH to that cover lol!!! Guess wise I’m going to say that this lady is some type of handy woman. (far fetched by the cover I know) I think she’s going to be hired by a guy and she ends up working on some type of home renovation project for him. Those late nights will soon turn to romance and BAM! We have ourselves a romance novel!

Actual Synopsis:

One handywoman.
One single dad.
One set of twins.
And the wall isn’t the only thing being drilled…
I learned the hard way that being a handywoman isn’t easy. The questions, the stares—the assumption I’m the proud owner of a cock and balls. Not that it matters. I’ve proven over and over that I’m ready for anything the judgmental asses throw at me.
Except the hot, single dad of twins who just moved to town.
Brantley Cooper gets the shock of his life when I show up on his doorstep to fix up his kids’ new rooms. His son is confused why ‘the pretty lady has a drill,’ and his daughter has a new obsession—me.
On paper, my job is easy. Go in, do their bedrooms, and leave.
In theory, I’m spending eight hours a day with a guarded, sexy as hell guy, and I’m staying for dinner more often than I’m eating it alone, on my couch, with Friends re-runs.
I shouldn’t be staying for dinner. I shouldn’t be helping him out with the twins. I shouldn’t be falling in love with tiny toes and dimpled cheeks.
And I most definitely should not be kissing my client.
Oops…

Verdict:

NAILED IT!!!! (pun intended lol) I didn’t guess that he would be a single dad BUT that just adds to my desire for reading this. Single dad romances are my new favorite to read!! This book was just bumped way up on my TBR list.

The Book:

Irish Crown

My Guess:

Okay, first off….*wipes drool off my chin* This cover is HOT!!!! I get the feeling this guy is a MMA fighter. I feel he’s this super bada$$ guy who everyone fears. I also think this is a romance and there will be a girl who maybe needs protection from an ex boyfriend or something??

Actual Synopsis:

It was one night together.

I wasn’t supposed to see him again.
I never thought I would.

And then, the six foot three cement graffiti wall of badass strides back into my life, and does it full force.
Now he’s protecting me from his past and I’m protecting myself against the heated chaos he erupts in my body. It doesn’t help that he can do playful and sweet, when he’s not doing bossy.

But the overly confident, playboy Deaglan Kane is danger, has no boundaries, and is totally off limits.

And I know behind his walls there’s a man with a dark and damaged past.
A man more dangerous. A man who may be the greatest threat of all.

The Irish Crown.

Verdict:

So….I didn’t quite nail this one lol!!! This IS a romance and he IS protecting her so I get partial credit right?!?!? Oh and it literally says he’s a bada$$ in the synopsis. More points for me!!! lol!!


Shout out to Nicole for providing me with the book for this week’s edition. Let me know what you think about this post in the comments below. Did you think I did a good job guessing the synopsis or was I totally off base in your opinion??
