Here's my candidate for the week:

My Sweetest Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron
Publisher: Harlequin HQN (January 28, 2014) 
Series: My Favorite Mistake, 2
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

The past will always find you.

Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life; until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn't begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn't enough to help her feel normal again.

And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can't begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she's not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she's no longer sure she deserves.

But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he's hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together; or tear them apart for good?

It's all about the pose--the loving placement of the hands, the tilt of her head to allow him to whisper sweet (or dirty..?) things in her ear while nuzzling her neck...the color scheme, muted but still very sexy. Perfect! I loved book 1, and I can not wait for this one to be released. Is it January yet?! :)

Kame's Pick:

Redemption by Stephanie Tyler 
Publisher: Carina Press (November 18, 2013) 
Series: Defiance, 2
Genre: New Adult (Post Apocalyptic)

Matthias Robichaud is looking for an alliance. The Defiance motorcycle club is a stronghold in the dangerous world that’s become the new norm and he’s driven to prove he’s tough enough to be sworn in as a full member. But when he sees a beautiful, spirited girl abducted by a rival MC, rescuing her jeopardizes all he’s worked for.

Politician’s daughter Jessa Everson knows what’s expected of her—obedience, loyalty and silence—but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t fight when she’s kidnapped by the Lords of Vengeance. Having Matthias save her is like gaining an avenging angel in leather and tattoos. But Defiance is known for brutal justice, and she may have just traded one bad situation for another.

Matthias’s urge to protect is too strong to ignore, no matter how much trouble Jessa brings to Defiance’s gates. There’s no room in the post-Chaos world for weakness so if Matthias and Jessa have any chance of surviving, they’ll need to put their full strength behind the MC…and hope that the MC will do the same for them.

Kame: I know NOTHING about this book – but I will tell you I so want to read it.

He just looks like a bad boy I would love to just jump on the back of that bike and go have an adventure with!
