I thought I'd come along today and show you the UK cover of Crash into You by Katie McGarry... you know, just in case you're interested.

Release Date:
November 26, 2013
The girl with straight A's, designer clothes, and the perfect life - that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she's just added two more to the list. 

One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker - a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind. 

Isaiah has secrets too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks - no matter how angelic she might look. But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.

I like it, and I like the colour of the text, but I'm just surprised that Mira Ink/Harlequin Teen UK decided to use such a popular stock image rather than having their own models that looked more like the actual characters.

Let's have a look at the US cover of Crash into You:

See? THAT'S Isaiah! Isaiah has tattoos and he has a shaved head and he has piercings... that that model doesn't have, but he looks more like Isaiah than Pepe Toth, who is the cover model on the UK cover. I adore Pepe cause he and his girlfriend Sztella have been on the covers of Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series and certainly very well known as Daemon Black.

I'm just disappointed that they didn't use the US cover, or at least found some more fitting cover models. Not that I don't love it, it's still nice. But, I do prefer the US covers.

  1. I really do not like this UK cover, I can't believe MIRAInk used this image, which is the cover of Onyx! And the photoshopped blond hair is very obvious. I agree with you, I wish they'd used the US cover with a little change, like what they did with Dare You To.
    Anyway, I just finished Crash into You and absolutely loved it :D

    1. Okay so it's not exactly the cover of Onyx but pretty similar :P

  2. The UK covers aren't bad, but the US covers are just a lot better. There are little things with the UK covers that make them a little strange. The huge font of the title of the UK Dare You To. The photoshopping of Crash into You makes the models look a little weird, especially the girl. Pushing the Limits is the only one that I don't have any issues with.
