Now, I don’t want you to think I didn’t enjoy this book. I actually really liked the story and getting to know the guys at Pier 70. I’m looking forward to learning more about all of them, especially Hudson and Teague. The relationship Cam’s dad has with him and all of the other guys is wonderful and it was great to read about such a supportive dad when the mom isn’t around. We don’t really get to meet Cam’s sister and her family in any significant way. It makes me wonder if she’ll be involved in future stories. If not, she was really a throw-away character.
I guess what it comes down to is depth. I love ALL the characters, even those I didn’t see too much, and the story line. There were quite a few warm-fuzzy moments that really gave me an attachment to both Cam and Gannon. And the chemistry between the two is off the charts…hot, hot, hot. Yet as a whole I felt there was a lot more to the story if we could have just seen one or two more layers down.
As many of you know, I am reading all of Nicole Edwards’ books in order of publication. Although all of her books can be read at standalone, I find I love the crossovers through the different series so I’m enjoying reading them in order. This book absolutely can be read without reading any of her other books. It truly stands very strongly as the first of a series and not one of a sub-series.
"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.
Gannon is a successful entrepreneur. He owns a popular gaming business that consumes his whole life. Rejected by his parents and family for being gay, he's devoted his whole life to being successful and making his company the best that it can be. This means there is little time for a social life, let alone a love life.
The two meet, and the attraction cannot be denied. Cam is the more skittish one in this relationship, but Gannon has found someone that has awaken him. Someone that has taken up space in his mind and heart...a place that has been solely occupied by work.
Cam likes that nerdy Gannon has a possessive and aggressive side. He finds himself completely consumed by thoughts of the man. Maybe it's time to finally start thinking about a serious relationship...something he can definitely see happening with Gannon. But what happens when an aspect of Gannon's job brings all of Cam's worst fears to the forefront? Will Cam's fear win? Can they find a way to make this relationship work?
This was a solid read for me. The story was decent and as can be expected with a Nicole Edwards book, the steam was satisfying. She really built it up in the beginning with both guys wanting to take the relationship slow...wanting to feel each other out. And oh boy, there's was some wonderful feeling each other before the main event.
But I think that the blurb and title are a bit misleading. Is Cam reckless like the title and his nickname suggest? Nope, not really. He's an outdoorsy and adventuress person...but he's nowhere near reckless. I feel like NE wanted to go down that route, but just didn't fully commit to it.
Also, the opposite attract aspect felt very weak to me. The only thing really opposite about these two were their appearances. Cam was tattooed and pierced (let me add that those piercings are in all the RIGHT places) whose wardrobe mostly consisted of cargo shorts and flip flops. Gannon had no ink or piercings, wore glasses and his wardrobe was mostly dress shirts and polos. Again, something else that I think the author wanted to highlight but didn't really commit to.
There were a couple of times that the book felt like an information dump for future books and I didn't like the contrived drama with Roan. It felt completely unnecessary. However, I'm unbelievably intrigued by Hudson and Teague! Oh man, there's some serious potential for greatness there! I'm on pins and needles for their book.
The ending was satisfying, if not a bit rushed and I thought the epilogue was sweet. Overall, a decent read and a solid start to a new series.
