Hmm. I'm getting techno-thriller, perhaps something to do with computer dating...The lipstick makes me think there's a femme fatale element. Strong female protagonist/antagonist?
Yes, techno thriller, or sci-fi but with romance?The lips make it look romance, the rest of the cover make it look sci-fi/techno. The blurb hints romance again. So I'm a bit ambivalent about genre.However, I like the overall design (except the lips, they do nothing for me). I like the typefaces, the man's face with the grid, and the placement of the elements.
I do like the cover, but the lipstick does also throw me for a loop. I would have guessed techno-thriller for the genre, but maybe we are talking fembot instead.
The red lipstick thing is... bizarre. I'd like this cover if it weren't for that. At a guess I'd say those "women are the evil" books in the techno thriller class. The lipstick thing is a huge turn off for me but I'd guess that may be a positive in me quite definitely not being the target audience.
Confusing. I'd say it's something like Fatal Attraction, maybe. A nasty female antagonist. I agree with JR about the lipstick, but it's probably an important clue about the book's contents. Without it, the cover would be very bland. Not my sort of book, I think.
