Shelf Candy Saturday is a weekly meme hosted by Five Alarm Books. Every
Saturday, bloggers post a cover that really caught their eye
over the week for everyone to see. Judging a book by it's cover has
never been so fun
I am excited to show you all this weeks Shelf Candy. I saw it browsing through goodreads one day and read the synopsis and I was instantly a goner.
Check it out!

There are stories where the girl gets her prince, and they live happily ever after. (This is not one of those stories.)
Jenna Lord's first sixteen years were not exactly a fairytale. Her
father is a controlling psycho and her mother is a drunk. She used to
count on her older brother—until he shipped off to Afghanistan. And
then, of course, there was the time she almost died in a fire.
There are stories where the monster gets the girl, and we all
shed tears for his innocent victim. (This is not one of those stories
Mitch Anderson is many things: A dedicated teacher and coach. A caring husband. A man with a certain...magnetism.
And there are stories where it's hard to be sure who's a prince
and who's a monster, who is a victim and who should live happily ever
after. (These are the most interesting stories of all.)
Drowning Instinct is a novel of pain, deception, desperation, and love against the odds—and the rules. -Goodreads
:Why It's Shelf Candy:
Did you read that synopsis?! I am going crazy over here with want. Not only do I LOVE the synopsis, but the cover blows me away. So simple, yet so dramatic and fits with the synopsis perfectly. I love the fade effect that is going on, from pure black, to blue, to white at the very bottom. Also, the water dripping off of the girls face/hair just adds the perfect touch. I can not wait to order this book and have it in my hands and I PROMISE you all, when I read this, you will get one hell of a review. Books that push the limits are always so breathtakingly amazing, that I know this will change me somehow, in someway. Ilsa J. Bick, I can not WAIT to see what kind of journey you are going to take me on with this one.
