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...

Gannon Burgess, CEO of Burgess Entertainment, one of the top video game producers in the world, finds himself smack in the middle of the last place he would ever expect to be. But Gannon only thinks he is out of his element standing in the small marina office. Then... he meets Cam.

Rumor is opposites attract.

Sparks fly when this sexy, tattooed bad boy comes face to face with this buttoned-up gamer in glasses.

Can Cam and Gannon push one another out of their comfort zones? Or -- thanks to the events that have shaped their lives -- will the time they spend together prove to be just another reckless adventure? This one involving their hearts.

 She's at it again folks.  I read Reckless almost a month ago and Cam and Gannon are still sticking with me.  Reckless is the first in the Pier 70 series, Nicole's first exclusively MM series.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I found out she was finally going to write an all MM series.  So naturally when the ARC landed on my Kindle in early October, I had to dive right in.  

Cam is one of four owners of the Pier 70 Marina.  He's been nicknamed "Reckless" by his friends because that's how he lives his life, recklessly.  At least when it comes to his bucket list and other assorted dangerous activities he chooses to partake in.  It's not the case with his love life or lack thereof.  He's got his reasons, deep down he knows he can't stay this way forever but its safer for him to keep his heart locked deep inside him so he doesn't get too close.

In walks the sexy as sin Gannon Burges, CEO of an electronic gaming conglomerate.  All buttoned up in everything that he does, especially when it comes to business, Gannon doesn't let loose much. So when he meets tatted up Cam at the Pier 70 Marina, for an outing his assistant claims is much needed for office morale, he's not sure what to do.  Gannon isn't a fan of swimming, or anything water related to be more exact, so how could a relationship with a man who owns a Marina ever work out?  You'll have to read it to find out!

The supporting characters (who will each get their story told in 2016) are just as fascinating as Cam.  There is plenty going on with each of them and I'm dying to see what Nicole's got up her sleeve for these three.

This story is epic!  It's one of those toe curling, keep you flipping the pages kind of love stories that just melts your heart and makes you sigh out loud (in a good way)!  If only all romances could be this well executed.  Yes, there is heat and of course Nicole executes flawlessly where the sex is concerned.  But this story was so much more than that for me.  Cam and Gannon will forever be in my favorite book couples.  I can't wait to see what she has in store with Fearless in 2016.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nicole Edwards lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, their three kids, and four rambunctious dogs. When she’s not writing about sexy alpha males, Nicole can often be found with her Kindle in hand or making an attempt to keep the dogs happy. You can find her hanging out on Facebook and interacting with her readers - even when she’s supposed to be writing.

Nicole also writes contemporary/new adult romance as Timberlyn Scott.
