Product Description

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.

Gay Romance

It seem like forever since we have had a purely m/m romance from Nicole Edwards, but Reckless has made the wait worth it!'

Reckless is the first in the Pier 70 series, based around the lives of Cam, Dare, Roan and Teague. There is quite a bit of set up for the series, but this is Cam's story.

Cam Strickland has been in a dry spell for a while, and it has been a long time since he has had a reaction to another man.

Gannon Burgess is all work no play, and doesn't even want to be at the marina, but his best friend Milly has other ideas for him and his workers.

Cam and Gannon could not come from two more different worlds, but their attraction to each other knows no bounds. You can feel the pull between them right from the get go. There is some great banter between the two, along with shameless ogling!

I loved how their friends saw so much between them, pushed the issue with them to make them take that step into "relationshipville".

I got a little frustrated with Cam and his pull/push with Gannon. As we learn more of his past, yes I could understand his actions why more, but I still wanted to shake some sense into him. I felt Ms Edwards dealt with his demons, his personal issues very well.

I loved the interactions between Gannon and Milly, and Cam's interactions with Dare, Teague and Roan. These went from downright hilarious to heartbreakingly tender.

There was some scenes with Cam and Roan that brought a tear to my eye.

I hope Roan's story is next, as I feel it is going to be an emotional ride.

But then again, I think Dare, Roan and Teague are all going to have intriguing stories.

Reckless is great start to the Pier 70 series, and I am looking forward to more in the future.

Nicole Edwards is one of my favourite authors, so much so that I just one-click or preorder any book she writes. I just love her characters and this book doesn't disappoint.
Cam with three other friends own Pier 70 Marina. He meets Gannon when Gannon rocks up at the office of Pier 70 Marina looking to hire a boat for a team building exercise for his workers.
Even though there is an instant attraction between the two men, both men have issues that need to be dealt with if they are to make a go of their burgeoning relationship.
I loved this book and look forward to hearing more about the other men who own Pier 70 Marina.

I have always enjoyed Nicole Edwards' books until this one. This story is weak in plot and character development. From the first chapter Gannon and Reckless were always going to end up together the only question was what road block would be thrown up to thwart their HEA. I found myself skim reading knowing I wasn't missing any plot developments. There is no depth whatsoever in this story. I feel the author was on a tight time line and produced a book to appease. I hope this author will take a little more time for her future offerings. A waste of my money and time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!!! 28 October 2015
By Books Laid Bare & Books Laid Bare Boys - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Nicole Edwards and her very first all MM series- what a dilemma. One of my favourite author taking me to a genre that I am not overtly comfortable being in. I know, I know get my head out my ass and get a grip this woman has written every conceivable pairing or combination that could possibly be contrived before and I have read each and every one but this seemed to be setting off on a different path – a solely MM series and that is a new one for me.
But should I have worried, should I have been concerned – not a chance – do I deserve a slap upside, well yep!
Reckless -Pier 70 centres around 4 guys who own and run a marina and in this it is – Cam Strickland who is first in line for the salubrious Ms Edwards treatment! The rest of the guys will just have to wait… by the way just in case you are wondering – the other guys are Roan Gregory, Dare Davis, and Teague Carter.
As I have said first up is Cam- and at the age of 32 he is the owner of Pier 70. Life is one almighty high for Cam, he lives life to the max and is a complete thrill seeker but he may play fast a loose when it comes to getting his kicks but the one think he doesn’t take lightly is relationships – and to that extent he is happy just to keep that aspect of his life on the back burner.
But when he meets the enigmatic Gannon Burgess on his corporate team building day there is just something that ignites between them that neither of them had expected.
They couldn’t be more different, but they had no idea what it was about each other that had lit the touch paper of lust but it most definitely was alight and the smoulder dial was about to be turned all the way from simmer to blistering!
Like any relationship, the early days are when there is the most risk, the time when walls have to be breached and defences dropped but when both parties have baggage it also is the time when things are more likely to be derailed.
But when this sexy tattooed bad ass and the geeky control freak put their minds to it, I had no doubt that they would find a way to make it work. But it was going to take a commitment that they both had to be happy with. Was that even possible?
I think if I had to describe their relationship I would have to say it was emotional. But that might be doing them an injustice, because the journey they were on was not an easy one by any stretch of the imagination, they had a lot to work around but they had to find a way to make it work because quitting was not an option.
Oh and dang, the physicality of their relationship was – volcanic! Neither of them was ready to give up their need to dominate and finding a way to make that work was enough to set have my screen smoking.
I’m hooked on Nicole Edwards work and yes that does mean this book – I loved Cam and Gannon but I also liked the fact that we got a sneaky peek into the lives of the other guys, the rest of the Pier 70 team.
I am genuinely looking forward to the rest of the series, to see where life takes the rest of team, to watch as they each get their chance of love.

You had me at the broken door chime....
I really do love this new series. M/M written by Nicole Edwards is one of my most favorite things.
This is a gut wrenching romance that throws you into the twists and turns of complicated love story. It's a reminder that relationships aren't easy and you need to fight for what you want.
A Must Read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The two of them get along quite well and enjoy each other's company 28 October 2015
By Heather - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Cam Strickland and Gannon Burgess are complete polar opposites. The only thing they have in common is that they both devote their entire lives to their work. Neither one of them have time for a relationship. Things changed for both the moment Gannon walked into Cam's office at the marina to schedule a boat outing for his employees.

The attraction between the two is evident. Both Gannon and Cam feel the immediate pull between the each other. These feelings are something new and they both don't know what to do with these feelings. The two of them get along quite well and enjoy each other's company. Things begin to change as the relationship progresses. Cam is struggling with fears that haunt him from his past.
He loved Cam. There was no doubt about that. He wanted to spend every waking moment with the man.
However, he had a feeling that loving Cam might possibly be the hardest thing he'd ever done. (Gannon - Reckless)

Will Cam's fears keep him from moving forward with Gannon? When Cam begins to push Gannon away, will Gannon push back? Will Cam open up to Gannon about his fears? Will Gannon allow Cam's fears to tear them apart?

Cam is big on trust. He pushed Gannon to trust him when it came to being on the water, but will Cam trust Gannon when he needs him the most?
"Love's not easy, man. But when you find that person... it's worth it." ~ Dare
Reckless is a M/M romance novel. Nicole makes you fall in love with these two men. The love the two of these men have for each other warmed by heart. They both loved fiercely. Finding that special someone to share your life with is rare, so when you do, hold on to them. Fight for them. Love them.

That is exactly what Gannon and Cam did. Both of these guys had their own issues to deal with. They could either deal with them on their own, like they have been trying to for years, or they could lean on each other and help each other through it.

Nicole introduced us to a great cast in this series and I look forward to reading the others. This group of friends are special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicole Edwards has written another great M/M story, and the first in an M/M series!! 28 October 2015
By Theresa Martin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Cam and Gannon. As different as night and day, but perfect for one another. Cam is nicknamed Reckless for a reason. He owns a marina with his childhood friends. He’s an adrenaline junkie, who lives life to the fullest. He loves the outdoors, and is always ready for his next big adventure. He’s grown tired of one-night stands, but hasn’t found the right guy to grab his interest for any length of time. He’s happy with the status quo…sort of.

Gannon runs company that develops video games. His life is indoors creating the next big craze for gamers. His life is his work, and he just doesn’t have time for a relationship. But, if the right guy were to come along, he’d make time.

Gannon’s assistant, Milly—who happens to be his best friend—gets Gannon to agree to a team-building outing with his staff. They decide on an all-day boat excursion. When they walk into Pier 70, and Cam greets them, the attraction is immediate. Neither of them makes the first move, even though they want to. Eventually, they go out on a date, and the chemistry is even stronger. They decide to see each other exclusively, but taking things slow. They’re both struggling with ghosts from their pasts that have the potential to keep them from totally committing to one another.

In addition to the main story, you get to meet Cam and Gannon’s friends and family. A great bunch with a wide range of personalities.

Nicole writes a great new storyline that is so different from her other series. You’ll definitely laugh, and maybe shed a tear or two. If you’ve read any of her other books, you know she has a gift for HOT love scenes. Have something cool to drink—or a hot body nearby when you read this book! I immediately fell in lust with Cam, and I adored Gannon. Now, I’m in love with them both.

Like her others, this series is also set in beautiful Texas, so I personally think it would be awesome if there was a surprise cameo. Nicole gives you a lot of story, but it didn’t feel cramped, rushed, or drawn out too much. In addition to Cam and Gannon, you get quite a bit of insight to the supporting cast. Enough to whet your appetite for more.

Reckless is the first book in Nicole’s new all M/M Pier 70 series. I can’t wait for the next book. Nicole blew me away (pun definitely intended) with Ethan, her first M/M book. And now, she’s writing a whole series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book 28 October 2015
By Kathy - Published on
Loved this book. Everyone needs a best friend like Milly. This is the story of Gannon and Cam. Total opposites. Gannon owns his own gaming company Burgess Entertainment full up geek quad creating new video games. Cam and his friends own Pier 70 Marina. Gannon hates water, Cam not into the video game world.
Milly is Gannon's long time assistant and best friend she decides the office needs some morale building and talks Gannon into a boat outing. Cam and Gannon meet and the sparks fly. Can they work through their differences. They both have heartache from the past that could affect whether or not they can make it as a couple.
I honestly could go on and on about this story the love, heartache, laughs it has it all. I did not want to put the book down once I got into it.
If you enjoy M/M this is a must read for you. Nicole is one of my go to authors I love her books. I can not wait for the next Story in this series.
