Review Source: 

He’s the one who walked away...
Dare Davis, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has been living the past fifteen years of his life not taking risks. He considers himself fearless because he refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt him. He’s had his heart broken before, he’s not looking for it to happen again.

He’s the one who let love slip through his fingers...
Noah Pearson, thirteen-year veteran of the Austin Fire Department, finds himself being roped into a favor by his mischievous stepsister. When Milly invites him to come along on a cruise to the Caribbean, he finds himself giving in. What he doesn’t know is that Milly’s playing matchmaker. However, Milly’s surprise backfires when Noah finds himself front and center with the man who slipped through his fingers fifteen years ago.

Some people believe in second chances.
Things heat up when the mischievous, fun-loving bad boy comes face to face with this smoking hot fire fighter.

Now that Dare and Noah find themselves sharing a room on a week-long cruise, can they find a way to keep the peace and ignore their past? Or – thanks to the decisions they made long ago – will they come full circle, picking right back up where they left off?

As I sit here I am trying to figure out how to start this review.  I hate when I have off ways to express how I feel about a book.  Now, don't get me wrong, it is not that I disliked the book, it just seemed a bit off for me, and here is why:

Being the avid reader of Nicole's work I have had many, meaning almost all of her books, being a 5 start read or better.  This book for me however did not quiet get me there.  Now, again, do not think that I did not enjoy it because I did.  I loved the way that she wrote Dare and Noah.  But, to me this being a Nicole book, it seemed a little slower paced.  I also felt as if it was a bit drawn out, but after discussing it with a fellow blogger, I agreed that it is because she was giving us more about what was happening with each of the Pier 70 group not just Noah and Dare.  Even though this is their story.

Now as for the overall feeling of the book.  She gives us the great romance that she is known for, but this book tends to show a bit of her softer side.  So if you are looking for that heat, I didn't really feel that it was the main focus and mood for this story.  Now if you love the stories of second chances and the good guys getting what they deserve, then you nailed it with this one.

Again, do not get me wrong, I completely enjoyed the read, it just seemed to move at slower pace than what I am typically accustomed to with Nicole's writing, but it is not a bad thing.  She does have to remind us of her softer sides from time to time.

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards launched her professional writing career in July of 2012. Having been an avid reader all of her life and a huge fan of creative writing, it seemed the likely path for her to take. Since then, she has released fifteen books and has no plans to stop. As her full-time career/hobby, Nicole writes steamy contemporary and erotic romances.

Nicole is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who was born and raised in Texas. Married with three kids and four dogs, she has plenty of interaction to keep her imagination brewing. Her books have been featured in USA Today’s Happy Ever After segment as well as Indie Reader’s best seller list. She has forged her way as an independent author. 

Although she has a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources, she prefers to be hiding out in her writing cave, talking to the fictional characters that have built up in her head over the years. 

When she isn’t writing or plotting her next book (sometimes translated to “playing on Facebook”), Nicole loves to read and spend time with her family and her dogs.
