The Darkest Joy Summary

The Darkest Joy by Marata Eros

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 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, 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 lives.
