Tell Me About It
Years ago, Clara survived a vicious bear attack. She's used to getting sympathetic looks around town, but meeting strangers is a different story. Yet her dreams go far beyond Knik, Alaska, and now she's got a secret that's both thrilling and terrifying--an acceptance letter from Columbia University. But it turns out her scars aren't as fixable as she hoped, and when her boyfriend begins to press for a forever commitment, she has second thoughts about New York. Then Rhodes, a student teacher in her English class, forces her to acknowledge her writing talent, and everything becomes even more confusing--especially with the feelings she's starting to have about him. Now all Clara wants to do is hide from the tough choices she has to make. When her world comes crashing down around her, Clara has to confront her problems and find her way to a decision. Will she choose the life of her dreams or the life that someone she loves has chosen? Which choice is scarier?

Book Wars! Lead [Stage Dive #3] by Kylie Scott (96)

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!

Before we get to this weeks Book Wars, we have a winner to announce. The Book Wars winner for  is.....USA!  Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic New Adult series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play.

As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it's booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.

Lena's not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

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.
YAY for Lead, the third book in author Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series! This is my FAVORITE book of the series and I've LOVED this cover the most of all the covers from the US. I can totally see this being Jimmy too.

And while I love how the new UK covers all fit so well together and I do love the look of this one too, I just can't get past how much the US cover for Lead draws me in and makes me feel all squishy for Jimmy.

So, this week my vote is being cast for the US cover. The UK cover gets high points from me as well, but the US cover has it beat, without question.

Now it's your turn to tell us which cover you like the best. It's only a quick click, so cast your vote today!
This is a tough choice for me today. Looking at both of these covers for the  first time I really can't decide which one I like the most.

Having not read these books yet I cant really imagine how the covers fit the story, and how well they do. So my vote today will be based on how the cover appeals to me.

The UK feels dark, and while I do like the pose of the models themselves, I really can't find anything about the cover that I like. The US cover seems lighter but mysterious, along with the addition of that tattoo this is the cover that grabs my attention more.

It's a US vote for me this week, don't forget to cast you vote below.

VOTE for YOUR favorite cover of Lead NOW!
