Book Wars! Vicious Cycle [Vicious Cycle #1] by Katie Ashley (102)


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 Zeroes is.....USA! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Also, there's a poll at the bottom of the post that we'd love to hear your input for the two covers! Tell us which one YOU love the most.

Synopsis:
New York Times bestselling author Katie Ashley revs up the danger and sexual tension in her brand-new Vicious Cycle romance series.

Deacon Malloy’s life is dedicated to the Hell’s Raiders motorcycle club. Tough, hard, and fast with his fists, he serves the group as sergeant at arms. But his devil-may-care approach to life is thrown for a loop when the five-year-old daughter he never knew existed lands on the club steps.

Alexandra Evans is devoted to all her students—but there’s always been something about Willow Malloy that tugs at her heart. There’s an aura of sadness about her, a girl in need of all the love Alexandra can give. When Willow stops coming to school, Alexandra’s search leads to a clubhouse full of bikers…and a father hell-bent on keeping his daughter always within sight.

The moment Deacon sees Alexandra, he has to have her in his bed—and he’s never met a woman yet who couldn’t be persuaded. No matter how attracted she is to Deacon, Alexandra refuses to be just another conquest. But it’s Deacon himself who could be seduced—into a brighter future for himself, his daughter, and the woman he’s falling for against all odds.

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
This week we have Vicious Cycle which is the first book in author Katie Ashley's new series with the same name.

And the great thing about this cover is there's things that are kind of similar with each of them. And they both have an Motorcycle Club vibe going on with them too. The US one more so than the UK cover, but there's still a vibe with the UK one.

And I like the guys on the cover and their tattoo's and both the red and yellow colors look great too... so if I'm honest this is hard for me to choose this week.

Hmmm... I really like both of them!!! Well, I really like certain things about both of them. I'd pick them both up in a store to check them out too. I think I'll have to choose the US cover just for the fact that it has a guy on a bike. Yeah, I'm totally choosing the cover with the guy on a bike.

Since the US gets a vote for me, which will you be voting for this week? Click on the cover below to cast your vote!

On first glance at these covers I found it hard to really pick my favourite. I usually love covers with biker guys on them, but the US cover just  doesn't do anything for me. It feels too busy.

The UK cover has a similar hot guy on the front,but it's pretty simple compared to the US cover. This makes the cover model easy to look at (and by look at I mean stare for hours at), and the font and layout used for the title just works better.

It's a UK vote for me this week, don't forget to leave your vote below.
