He’s a walking contradiction...
Cam Strickland, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has earned the nickname his friends gave him years ago. Reckless. Sure. By definition. When it comes to fun, Cam hasn’t yet met a challenge he wouldn’t accept. In other areas, he’s likely far too cautious for his own good.

He’s his complete opposite...

*** 3.5 STARS ***

Cam is 32 and part owner of a Service Marina,Pier 70.He works hard,is a bit of an andrenaline junky and is not afraid to take risks.However,when it comes to his love life he's much more cautious.

Gannon is 36,a Ceo of a software development company and a video game producer.
He is a workaholic,hardly ever having any down time(his choice) and hasn't dated in about 2 years.He's a hot geek and definitely not reckless.

*** 1.5 Stars ***


Objectively, this is probably not a 1-star book; it didn't commit any major Crimes Against Literature and none of the characters did anything horribly offensive. But... that doesn't mean it was good or that I enjoyed it.

Right from the outset, I found Gannon nondescript and a little dull. I liked that he wasn't your typically shy gamer geek, but there wasn't a whole lot else to recommend him. He wasn't really sexy or adventurous or outgoing or funny or sweet or... anything.

"I love you, you know?"
"I love you, too."
"This won't be easy."
"Probably not, but it'll be worth it."

I liked this, but unfortunately nothing really wowed me.

Cam is part owner of a thriving boating business. He lost his mother when he was young and the circumstances of her passing have left a devastating emotional scar. Cam refuses to get close to anyone for fear of losing them just as quickly and tragically. His fear has kept him from ever having a serious relationship.

This was a slow read. What I mean by that is that it wasn't something that completely held my attention for a long period of time. Hence the slow read. It took me longer than usual to finish it. It wasn't a bad book. It's just that there wasn't a lot going on. I liked both of the guys and I liked them together. But for some reason I just couldn't get into the story as much as I wanted to.

I enjoyed the slow build up in the relationship. I liked that they took their time getting to know each othe

Oh boy, this was definitely reckless! I actually remember reading this book a while ago but I don't know why I didn't add it to Goodreads. But if you want to read a sexy MM romance by Nicole Edwards, this one is a great way to start! You'll surely enjoy it!

I really enjoyed reading this "opposites attract" story.

Cam (32) is partial owner of a marina. He's a bit of a wild one. He really loves his extreme sports and he's got a bucket list he's working on.

Gannon (36) is the CEO of a multimillion software company. They mostly develop games. His time is mostly spend working. He's a nerd....and damn I love me some sexy nerds !!

4.5 From inferno to apocalyptic stars...

Being a fan of Nicole Edward's Walker Brothers I already knew she had a gift for creating sexy male characters with big...and bigger hearts. She somehow writes these amazing stories from a male POV in a way that is totally believable and so H-O-T!

While Cam & Gannon's first meeting might have generated insta-lust, that was something that they only shared with me. I was inside their heads as they fantasized about each other, before they ever took that first

“That’s part of loving someone, Cam. You accept them for who they are, faults and all. And you forgive them.”

I believe this is my first book by Nicole Edwards and all the reviews that I've seen so far had always raved about her writing and stories. I'm not going to lie, I was a bit let down. I felt like I was reading a different version of a book than everyone else.

While I did love the chemistry between Cam and Gannon, I felt like there was something missing. I can't explain i

This is going to be one of my favourite series. I can see it in my future.

Really enjoyed the slow burn between these two. It was something else and I could appreciate the feel around it. I love both the MC’s. I love the idea of having to get the stories behind all the friends eventually.

It was a great read and though I keep it short and sweet it deserves a great review which it will get from tons of fabulous people out there

Oh how Nicole Edwards can write some mm romance! This book surprised me. The characters did not turn out to be who I thought they would be in the beginning (not a bad thing, just different). While I really enjoyed this book, the world wasn't my favorite for whatever reason. I may read Speechless because I'm super intrigued by those MCs, bu will probably pass on the other two. ...more

4/2022 - This is my third time reading this (that I’ve recorded) so I’m going to leave my rating as it is. However, I didn’t really enjoy it that much this time around. (Maybe 2 1/2 to 3 stars) Cam and Gannon hardly talked. There were a lot of internal thoughts, but not a lot of interaction other than their physical attraction until the second half. By then, they were already thinking they were in love with each other. I didn’t understand this since they didn’t have any in depth conversations to ...more

I don't know why but this book just gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. This was my very first Nicole Edwards read and I just loved it, its far from perfect but oh boy I loved this book. I fell in love with Gannon and Cam from the very first page and they intrigue me in ways I don't know how to explain I just couldn't put the book down.

Two workaholics falling in love......
Pier 70 is a new all MM series from the woman that writes the hottest chemistry between characters in all of Romance in my opinion. While others can write sexy time scenes that get you hot and bothered, Nicole is able to tempt and tease you with this slow dance of introducing you to these characters that when they collide, burst from the pages with a spark and fire you will not be able to resist. Cam and Gannon are no exception. You think they'd be similar in

This is the first book of the series so much of the novel is getting us aquatinted with the men who work at and own Pier 70 Marina. Cam, Roan, Dare and Teague are all close friends and all gay. This is Cam and Gannon's love story peppered with bits of everyone else. Most of the storyline takes place at the marina with its gorgeous lake scenery, which is great for skinny dipping and siting back while drinking a beer. The dress code is swim trucks and flip-flops

“I love you, you know?” Cam smiled.
“I love you, too.”
“This won't be easy.”
“Probably not,” Gannon agreed. “But it'll be worth it.”

The series centers around Pier 70, a marina, owned by Cam and his friends, Roan, Dare and Teague.

The first book is Cam and Gannon’s story, CEO of Burgess Entertainment, one of the top video game producers in the world, two alpha males who both have their own demons to fight.

These guys overcome distance, fears and challenges to find joy and happiness and the journey was HOT ...The supporting characters were great and I can't wait to see who is going to be the focus of book 2.

What a emotionally charged, sizzling read. Nicole Edwards has done it again !!

Cam Strickland and Gannon Burgess are total opposites. Cam is the tattooed, out doors, adrenaline junkie who has rightfully earned the nickname that he has been dubbed with "RECKLESS". Gannon is total Alpha Nerd. He is CEO of a video game production company. One thing they do have is chemistry but can they overcome their fears and the obstacles and find a way to coincide in their two very different worlds?

I totally loved this book. This was an amazing read that had me hooked from the moment that I started reading. It moved along at an amazing pace, has characters that will grab you, that you cannot help but fall in love with and a story that will grab you and not let you go until you finish the very last word. This must be read, there is no doubt about it and once you do, you will be hooked on this amazing author.

Expecting from the reviews a dirty, hot story . Instead it was a try at an angsty story that dragged. The same insecurities over and over again and just when you thought there would be more... they were eating somewhere else for supper.

This was a good read, good chemistry between the two main characters, although I did want to knock their heads together come the end, not sure I will be reading the rest at the moment, found myself wanted to just get the book over and done with.
