Here's my candidate for the week:

The Darkest Joy by Marata Eros
Publisher: Gallery Books (February 18, 2014) 
Series: The Darkest Joy, 1
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

A sexy and poignant new adult novel from New York Times bestseller Marata Eros, about two lost souls who find each other in the wake of tragedy, only to learn that love may not be enough to heal the wounds of a dark and tortured past...

Twenty year-old Brooke Starr has escaped the aftermath of a brutal tragedy by abandoning her music studies and moving north to take a summer position as a part-time deck hand on a deep-sea fishing boat. When her survivor’s guilt becomes unbearable, Brooke realizes there's only one thing she can do to finally erase the pain.

Deep sea fisherman, Chance Taylor, has just wrapped his guitar set at the local saloon when he sees the silhouette of a young woman in repose, the full moon highlighting her shadow as she plummets from a pier too high for diving... into water too cold to survive. Without thinking, he plunges in after her, saving Brooke from drowning.

As Chance works to save her from her own emotional fragility, Brooke finally begins to learn how to save herself. But when their chemistry begins to consume them, Brooke withdraws. She’s determined to be the master of her own destiny... until the past catches up with her in a cataclysmic plan so dark, so final... it threatens their love and their very lives.

It's a darker cover than what I typically like, but the pose of the couple is very sexy and eye catching. Maybe I'm just easy that way... ;)

It's a nice cover. Just not doing it for me. At this time I'm lusting after abs and former military. Lol.

I agree---knew you'd appreciate the find! :)

There is nothing wrong with lusing after abs and former military! :) I simply like to mix it up a bit every few weeks. ;) Next week will no doubt be more abs--abs, abs, everywhere, what a sight to see! :D

Well hello sexy cover! *low whistle. That is hot.
