***2.5 Stars***

We only regret the chances we didn't take.

And you know what? For the majority of this book, there wasn't anyone taking any chances or doing shit about anything.

Well, except for me. I was doing this.

Oh, and Dare and Noah were doing this.

And after finishing this book, I sit here like this.

This series is now two for two when it comes to a great idea but the author fumbling with the execution. The plot here was seriously underdeveloped and had no sense of direction....
3 stars : book 2 in the Pier 70 series about 4 friends owning a marina. Book 1 was about Cam and Gannon. Book 2 is about Dare, the fun guy from the band, and Noah, his past lover from 15 years ago.

Dare was deeply in love with Noah when he was nineteen and wanted to spend his life with him, but Noah thought Dare was too young. Tired of waiting and deeply wounded, Dare turned his back to Noah and went with his life. Fifteen years after their break-up, Dare and Noah get reunited on a ship during Ca
2.5 stars rounded down

The second story in the Pier 70 series, a series centered around 4 best friends who own a marina together, concentrates on Dare. Funny, silly, happy-go-luck Dare. He uses his humor as a shied to keep men away because he does not do relationships. He learned his lesson after breaking it off with the man of his dreams, Noah Pearson, 15 years ago after Noah wouldn't take their relationship to the next level after 2 years of dating. He walked out on Noah in the middle of the ni

I am a huge Nicole Edwards fan and "Ethan" is one of my all time favorite mm books :)
I have been (un)patiently waiting for this book ever since I've read the previous book. I was very curious about Dare and his story. This book however almost drove me to drink !!

The push and pull between the two MC's made me insane !!

I really don't know how she does it but this book had a special feel to it, I don't know how to explain it but it was different and I so love this story.

We have Dare with his pierced nipples - all sexy as hell

And we have Noah all sexy firefighter

And the chemistry between them is out of this world!!!

M/M. This book would have been very close to 5 stars if it had just focused on the Dare/Noah relationship, two guys who had desperately loved each other 15 years ago but parted on less than happy terms but now meet again on a wedding cruise for another gay couple. I loved both Dare and Noah even though there was a lot of push and pull in the relationship (and lots and lots of steamy sex).

What I didn't really care for was the focus on a lot of side characters that didn't interest me at all. I fou

I was glad to see them finally reconcile after 15 years of mindless connections that just didn't work. These soul mates eventually found their groove ! Looking forward to the next book❤️❤️ ...more

This series is definitely going to be one of my favorites!
This one is as good as the first one and can not wait to get started with the next one in the series! I'm so glad I've found her books.

One thing i didn't like
Milly helping hand in book one was ok, bc it was done in such a cute way, but in this one she is too much.
I don't hope she is the one who has to "save" the relationship between the men for the rest of the series.

Pier 70 is about a group of men owning and running a marina. Fearless is Dare's story, but it also features the rest of the gang. It's all about relationships including romances, friendships and families. To me it felt a little deeper than book 1, but I would still consider it a fairly light read.

Dare and Noah were a young couple 15 years ago. Things didn't end well for them. After not crossing paths since their breakup, they end up on a cr

5 Star review of Fearless (Pier 70 #2) by Nicole Edwards
This is the second book in the Pier 70 series and I loved it. This is an M/M story; about a second chance at love. It begins 15 years earlier and then bullets into the present. I love how Ms. Edwards set up this story and their history from the beginning.
Although a stand-alone, I would recommend you read Reckless, book 1 first, as you will get a better understanding of the Pier 70 owners and the secondary characters.

"Stay and fight."

I fell in love with the men of Pier 70 when I first met them in Reckless. However; I must confess that it was Dare that I crushed on the hardest. His laid back lifestyle, sense of humor, and aversion to wearing shoes made him stand out for me. I was positive that he was hiding something... or someone in his past. He was also hiding his heart, unless it was needed to help out one of his friends, the other owners of the Pier 70 Marina. He never hesitated to lend a hand whe

Fearless by Nicole Edwards

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 stars

The joy that can only come after reading a Nicole Edwards book is the state I'm in!!! Dare and Noah are freaking spectacular. Mrs Edwards makes you not only need a glass of ice water next to you while you read but she sucks you in with the heart and soul of each character.

This is a second chance romance, which is usually hit and miss for me but this was a hit. It's written in a way that it's not forced or unbelievable. It's so real. These two men wal
I am loving this new Nicole Edwards series. It's true that I've loved just about every book of hers that I've ever read, but still...I get a thrill when I discover that, once again, she's performed her magic. Reading some reviews others wrote, it seems that a common complaint about this book is the slow pace of the relationship. I can relate, I suppose, but it never got to the place where it was annoying to me. Especially when you consider that these two once had a deep, loving relationship toge ...more

I really love this series and I love Nicole Edwards' writing. She has that power to suck you in and make you stay.

I loved Dare from the moment I read Reckless. He's the kind of character you tend to fall for immediately. He's funny and sarcastic, but he also has a soft side - especially for his best fiends.

This is definitely a story about second chances. I really enjoyed Noah and Dare's dynamic. They just have that spark together that only happens once in a lifetime.

My only complaint, and thi

Just when you think Pier 70 couldn't get any sexier, it does! This book brings the whole crew together for Cam and Gannon's wedding. There is a whole lot of surprises in story with unexpected match making. Noah and Dare loved each other 15 years ago but couldn't make it work. They are given a second chance to find the love that they shared but will it be enough. Looking forward to Teague and Hudson's story!! ...more

3.5/5 rounded down.

My bar was set pretty low by Reckless, so Fearless was a nice surprise. For the most part, I loved this one. I really liked Dare and Noah. I liked the concept for the plot (intense love separated by 15 years and reunited by chance). But I had a lot of issues with how it was handled.

So this gif pretty much sums up my major issue with this book:

No one talked about their issues, we didn't get everything out in the open between them until like 80% of the way through. I want to say
The things we do to each hurt each other linger for years. Dare and Noah were together for about two years when Dare was 19 and Noah was 23. Dare was in love with Noah, knew what he wanted and wanted to move to the next step - together. Noah, for several reasons, dismissed Dare, told him he was a kid, too young, to know what he wanted. Fast forward 15 years and they see each other again on a destination wedding cruise. Cam and Gannon, from book 1, are getting married. Dare, Cam, Roan, Hudson and ...more

This instalment in the series was a total fail for me. I went into it knowing the author does not write M/M Romance but more of a teasing erotica tale but this one actually made even my back molars hurt from all the stupidity of the characters and the plot. The two main characters had a relationship 15 years ago but broke up when the 19-year old wanted to move in after 25 months together and the 23-year old thought he was “too young” and “didn’t know what he wanted.” There are so many things

I’m getting to the Pier 70 books with perfect timing. The 4th book in the series will be coming out at the end of March. Well, I read the first book in the series in January but there were other books between the 1st and 2nd book in this series in my Nicole Edwards reading challenge.

I’ve discovered that, although the first book in the series isn’t going to keep me reading a series if it’s not good, it is seldom the best book overall. (I mean that about all authors and series, not just this one.

2.5 Stars. I really liked the first book but this one had some issues for me. First let's get past the premise of the book that these two guys were in love and broke up and even though they didn't live far from each other never saw or heard anything about the other for 15 years and then they end up on the same cruise together. Okay I suspend my disbelief on that one. The problem I had was that one or the other of them kept running away as soon as things got emotional. It took FOREVER before they ...more

Dare once loved Noah -- to distraction but when Noah doesn't seem to be able to commit in the way Dare needs him to, he cuts his losses and moves on. But does he really? He has a great life now, owns his own business with some friends but he never lets anyone in really. He is a jokester and does what he has to in order to push others away. He never thought Cam and Gannon's wedding would be what brings him face to face with lost love. Noah has is own crosses to bear and seeing Dare again was neve ...more

Ho-ly mo-ly!!!! That book was super hot. Might be one of the hottest books I have read in a long time. I love all things Nicole Edwards and this book was no exception.

Dare and Noah dates for 2 years when they were younger but when Dare wanted to take things to the next level Noah wasn't so sure. Dare left Noah when he realized Noah would always see him as just a kid.

Two lovers, Dare and Noah break up over Dare's need to commit and Noah's refusal to do so. Both are shattered by the breakup. Fifteen years later they meet by chance at a wedding. Since the wedding in on board a cruise ship they can't really get away from each other, especially since Noah's meddling sister placed them in the same cabin. Before the end of the trip they have rekindled the spark between them but can it thrive in their every day lives? I'm never disappointed with Nicole Edwards. ...more

Second chance hot romance!

Dare and Noah what can I say? How the author weaved in Dare's love blast from the past completely surprised me in the best way. Book two of the Pier 70 series brought more of the same hidden gems within its story. Out of all the things I loved, the small town feel to this series is what I loved most. I'm that nosy neighbor that wants to know what's going on with the whole cast not just the featured couple. However, Dare and Noah had enough twists and turns I could barel

“There had never been any doubt in Noah’s mind that Dare had loved him back then. And in the years since, Noah had always compared every man he’d met, every potential relationship he could’ve had, with that one. No one had ever lived up to Noah’s expectations. No one but Dare. And now here they were again, fifteen years later. The sexual tension was a living, breathing thing. Something Noah couldn’t ignore no matter how hard he tried.” 1 likes
