Dare and Noah had a two year relationship while they were young. Dare wanted forever, Noah wanted to maintain status quo, and they had exchanged I love you's. Noah says the wrong thing and Dare walks out while Noah sleeps and they never see or speak again for 15 years. Okay, fine, but apparently they weren't content to just carry a little baggage into a future relationship. They both packed a full matched set of luggage and clung to it, allowing it to prevent any future chances. Who does that? We almost all have a "one that got away". I doubt that many hang onto the memory that hard. So, one down for realism.
When they see each other again, now that they are 34 and 38, and supposedly more mature, do they have a mature conversation about it? Of course not! They throw sexual taunts at each other and run hot and cold every time they stet close to anything important. For days and days, trapped on a ship. Rinse and repeat. I wanted to throw them both overboard and go on a shore excursion. Alone. So another one down for rank stupidity and immaturity.
Then they lose another one, because any and all conversation after that was accompanied by sex. So they were always short conversations. Add to that, all of this was started because of Milly the matchmaker maven. Even if she didn't know they knew each other before. She can't even run her own love life. Leave everybody else alone, bitch!
Was it well written and edited for what it was? Yes, so plus one. Did I like some of the sex scenes? Yes, so that's 2. Did I like the wedding scene? Yes, that makes three. And that is all. I really don't think I'll continue this series.
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.) That was once again the case here. I really enjoyed my read of Reckless, but Fearless is even better. I think it has to do with authors having a lot of characters to introduce in the first of a series.
Going into this book, I already knew Dare had some mysterious first love from back in the day that he never discussed. I was excited that I would get to meet the mystery man in this story. And hubba-hubba (do people still say that or is that just a Happy Days thing?), I’m sure was glad to meet Noah. No wonder Dare never got over the man! I’m not just talking about looks here either. In fact, I love that both Dare and Noah thought about how much the others body had changed over 15 years. Because we all know, no matter how gorgeous a man is in his late teens and early 20’s, men really don’t finish filling out until they’re a bit older.
There were a few times I thought I was close to getting annoyed by Dare and Noah not expressing their true feeling to each other. Where I understand the fear they each had about diving back into a relationship with each other, I wasn’t a fan of how they sometimes acted while trying to deal with their feelings. But just when I was ready to throw my hands up in frustration, the author reined them back in and gave me what I wanted. Nicole Edwards knows when to tone down the conflict and when to ramp it back up. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that in stories like this.
It’s always enjoyable when there is more to a story than you first think. That is the case here with aftermath of the breakup that happened 15 years ago. From the beginning we are allowed into Dare’s head and we understand why he did what he did and how it shaped his current life. Not so with Noah, and there’s more to his story of letting Dare go all those years ago than first meets the eye. That alone helped make this a great story. It throws so many more feelings into the mix.
As with most of this author’s books, the reader gets a peak into the lives of the other side characters. From the very beginning I was intrigued by Hudson and Teague. Now I’m even more anxious to read their story and I’m beyond glad it’s the next one up!
When Cam and Gannon's wedding week upon them, the last thing Dare ever imagined was running into the ghost from his past. He is more than angry that Noah is there. Even more so when he realizes because of Milly's meddling ways he is sharing a cabin with the man.
Deciding it would be in everyone's best interest, they call a truce and try to build a tentative friendship. But the lust is still there complicating the entire thing.
The story got better once they were off the boat. The relationship and issues between them was able to flow more naturally. It took awhile but they did finally hash out the pains from what happened to their relationship all those years ago. I was glad to see Noah finally pulling his head out of the sand and giving Dare the respect he deserved. I have to admit I was not happy with Noah at first.
The book ends on an HFN.
