Tell Me About It
You can never judge the depths by the surface...

For Cohen Rodriguez, getting dumped by his girlfriend was bad enough. Being told he's "not impulsive enough" was just the cheap parting gift. Still, he takes a break from his ├╝ber responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it's not exactly turning out the way he thought...

On top of that, there's Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they've recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they've never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person.

Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.

Previously released under the title Depths March 2013, and has been enhanced with new material.

Book Wars! Lick [Stage Dive #1] By: Kylie Scott (92)

Book Wars a weekly feature hosted between two book review blogs – A Life Bound By Books & Much Loved Books!

It’s a fact that book lovers know all about the covers of the books they covet. Often when a title is released here in the US, it’s sometimes vastly different across the pond in the US. So, Lisa from A Life Bound By Books and I have come together to create Book Wars to talk about the difference in covers when it comes to the US vs. UK versions.
We hope from time to time authors will chime in with their thoughts as well. We welcome everyone to comment and share their thoughts too! The more the merrier!

Synopsis:
Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

Let the Wars Begin:
Its now time to make our decision, let's see what we think about the covers and pick our favorite cover.
Lisa
For me he UK cover is the third I've seen for this title. And while I've loved them all, I think I like this new version the best so far.

The US cover has always been a favorite of this series, but there's something about the new UK version that is pretty amazing. It's kind of hot and in a way I think this fits Davids characters a bit more than this version of the US cover.

My vote, without a doubt goes to the latest in the UK cover for Lick. Give a quick click to cast your vote below!
Michelle
I've not read these books so I have no idea how the covers represent the story itself, that being said it's clear to me which cover I prefer.

I like the UK cover, I think it would go with the idea behind the story, but it does noting for me. The USA one though is a different matter. I like the whole idea of the rock star image, but it's the tattoo that does it for me. Who can resit a tattooed rocker....I can't

Its a USA win for me this week #tattoosforthewin
