UCF Mega Smackdown: The Ultimate Cover Showdown

You know?  I have actually realized there is a slight variation on a theme.  It took me a while to find it, but I feel as if I have come to know this couple intimately, so I notice things like that about them. As if they are old, old friends.

Well, I feel like they are on account of I can't seem to shake them.  Every time I turn around, Bam!, there they are again.

I can't really call them friends.  More like acquaintances.  The truth is I am kind of getting sick of their faces, but I feel compelled to seek them out.

I have to say, though, this has got to be the most utilized book cover for a contemporary YA/NA book.

Previously, I had brought you two smack downs, but this is the fight to end all fights and the winner takes all.

Bout 1:
Paris Cravings by Kimberly Montpetit
Starkissed by Brynna Gabrielson
‘Til Summer Comes Around by Susannah Balch
A Million Little Snowflakes by Logan Byrne
Bella Notte by Amber Roettger

Bout 2:
Picture Perfect (First Kiss Romances Book 5) by Lily Carwyn
Heart Strings by Betty Jo Schuler
Lovesessed by Pamela Diane King

And now to introduce the challengers:
Crushing on the Enemy by Sarah Adams
Before Time by Ms. Xunaira J. and Ms. Michelle Browne
Every Beat by Samantha Rey

Who will take home the prize and who will be crying in their cornflakes?

I ask again?  Who is this guy?  He's like a young Tom Cruise wannabe.


  1. What can I say? Not only reminds me of Tom Cruise but many one of the iconic scenes from dirty Dancing.

    1. That is true. I did not think of the Dirty Dancing angle, but you are so right.

      Hopefully I'll never see this couple on another book cover again.
