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.
This will be a different type of review for me, but it seems the best way to explain my feelings.
What I liked about Reckless
- The way Cam and Gannon took their time before having sex.
- The sex was HOT! Repeat, THE SEX WAS HOT!
- There was fighting and make-up sex several times. (I love that!)
- The “nerdy-boy falls for the bad-boy” roles were flipped which was very refreshing!
- Ms. Edwards did a great job showing the emotions and passion of these men.
- I loved reading about the three other men whose stories we will get in the sequels.
- There are lots of tattoos and lots of PIERCINGS. Smoking hot.
- THE DIRTY TALK
The hell of it was, Gannon couldn’t stop thinking about him. About what it would feel like to slide his tongue past those smooth lips, about how Cam would respond from beneath him, begging and pleading for Gannon to give him what he needed.
“Kiss me while you come for me,” Cam said softly.
“That’s it,” he urged. “Beautiful.” Cam’s eyes were glazed over, likely blinded by the lust that was coursing through him. “Come for me, Cam. Let me see you let go.”
What I didn’t like about Reckless
- Once Cam and Gannon exchange “I love you’s” I lost interest.
- The fights that Cam and Gannon had were childish and kinda silly.
- I’m a cover snob and this one missed the boat. (Get it? Missed the boat? They work in a marina? Ha!)
Seriously hot melt-the-paint-off-walls sex with two characters played against type made me a very, very happy girl. And now I will suffer while waiting for Dare’s story.
