Book Wars! Last Mile [Vicious Cycle #3] by Katie Ashley (116)


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 City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare is USA. Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Synopsis:
Katie Ashley, the New York Times bestselling author of Redemption Road and Vicious Cycle, returns to the dangerous and seductive world of the Hells Raiders motorcycle club…

After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.

Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.

Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.

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.

It's no secret that I love a great MC book and I have to say these covers, both US and UK are pretty hot. I love the fonts used on both. I love the colors selected and I love that you can't see the full models face. It gives you just enough to get your imagination going.

But, there's been something pretty amazing about the UK covers that I like a bit more. I think I picked the US cover for the first book and then the UK cover for the second... While I really want to choose the US cover because there's a bike in it, I can't stop looking at the UK cover.

It's simple yet somewhat stunning. So, yep... it's a UK win for me this week.

Which is your favorite? Share with us below!

This is the first time I am seeing both of these covers, and it was quite clear to me which cover gets my vote this week.

Let's start with the US cover...to me it just looks fake. I love the whole concept and the idea behind it, but it does nothing for me. I think if the background image would have been different then it might not have been so obvious, but to me this cover looks photo shopped, and I really don't like how the two images have been put together.

The UK cover however is very, very nice. I love how it's just one clear image of the model, how it's focused on him alone...and let's not lie to ourselves, he's a very hot cover model. I like the tattoos, the font style, basically everything about this cover wins for me.

It's a UK vote from both of us, which one gets your vote?
