|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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first book of the series so much of the novel is getting us aquatinted with the men who work at and own Pier 70 Marina. Cam, Roan, Dare and Teague are all close friends and all gay. This is Cam and Gannon's love story peppered with bits of everyone else. Most of the storyline takes place at the marina with its gorgeous lake scenery, which is great for skinny dipping and siting back while drinking a beer. The dress code is swim trucks and flip-flops.
Gannon is from a totally different world than Cam. He's a gamer and owns a world wide gaming company. Gannon is not so big on the outdoors and even has a fear of water. He's all about the office life so much that he hasn't taken the time to date or hook up with a man in some time.
Reckless is Cam's nickname. He's earned it by always pushing his boundaries with tattoos, piercings, extreme sports and such. Now that he's in his 30's he's not looking for one-night stands. He's more about taking it slow.
These two are not each others usual type at all, but there's an attraction they have in each other that can't be denied. Both are also at the stage where they are looking for something more.
I recommend this book for those wanting a romance. There are super hot sex scenes, but mostly it's just about the characters' day-to-day happenings. There are issues, which must be overcome, but it’s mostly a smooth ride.
