Promo Tour, Reviews by Jackie & Maimeo's Angels: Fearless by Nicole Edwards

Title: Fearless
Series: Pier 70 #2
Author: Nicole Edwards
Genre: Adult, M/M Romance
Published: April 11, 2016
He’s the one who walked away...
Dare Davis, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has been living the past fifteen years of his life not taking risks. He considers himself fearless because he refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt him. He’s had his heart broken before, he’s not looking for it to happen again.

He’s the one who let love slip through his fingers...
Noah Pearson, thirteen-year veteran of the Austin Fire Department, finds himself being roped into a favor by his mischievous stepsister. When Milly invites him to come along on a cruise to the Caribbean, he finds himself giving in. What he doesn’t know is that Milly’s playing matchmaker. However, Milly’s surprise backfires when Noah finds himself front and center with the man who slipped through his fingers fifteen years ago.

Some people believe in second chances.
Things heat up when the mischievous, fun-loving bad boy comes face to face with this smoking hot fire fighter.

Now that Dare and Noah find themselves sharing a room on a week-long cruise, can they find a way to keep the peace and ignore their past? Or – thanks to the decisions they made long ago – will they come full circle, picking right back up where they left off?

5 Star This is the second book in the Pier 70 series and I loved it. This is an M/M story; about a second chance at love. It begins 15 years earlier and then bullets into the present. I love how Ms. Edwards set up this story and their history from the beginning.
Although a stand-alone, I would recommend you read Reckless, book 1 first, as you will get a better understanding of the Pier 70 owners and the secondary characters.
Dare Davis is one of the owners of Pier 70 Marina, a fun loving guy who hides behind laughter, never letting anyone get too close. Behind the laughter, hides a heart not fully healed from a break up 15 years ago when he walked away from the only man he has ever loved. Dare has no intention of ever getting hurt again. He has never told his friends about Noah.
Noah Peterson, four years older, is the man who loved Dare but let him walk away, fearing he was too young (at 19) to know what he truly wanted. Not going after him is his biggest regret. Although he has tried to have relationships, he has always compared his lovers to Dare.
All the owners of Pier 70 Marina are in attendance. What no one knows is that Milly’s step brother (who has also been invited) is Noah Peterson. Dare and Noah are both shocked to see each other again when they arrive on the ship. 
Milly has always planned to try and match Noah and Dare up, so she arranges for them to share a cabin. No one is more surprised than Milly when she realizes that these two already have an intense history together.
Do you believe in second chances? What happens when Dare and Noah both realize that they still have feelings for each other? Will they act on their attraction or bury their heads in the sand and ignore their obvious feelings?
Nicole Edwards is one of the best authors around when it comes to writing M/M stories in my humble opinion. 
Fearless is not only an extremely hot read, with sizzling sex scenes but a beautiful love story: showing that a second chance at love can happen when it is meant to be. Not only that, but I often found myself laughing at some of the antics not only of Dare and Noah, but also some of the secondary characters whom I also love.
One of the things I most enjoy about Nicole Edwards’ books is that she doesn’t just focus on the two main characters; she always ensures we get an overall story with no one being left out. 
I particularly enjoyed her references to Hudson and Teague and am anxious to see how their relationship plays out. This was an emotional roller coaster at times, wondering if Dare and Noah would ever actually get their act together.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.


5 Star Review
Nicole Edwards is one of my go to authors and I love M/M and the Pier 70 Series
Fearless is book 2 but you can read this as a standalone because each book is about a different partner of the Pier 70 Marina but I do believe you would get more out of this book if you have read Reckless first. We first met Dare in book 1 where he was the joker of the pack but in Fearless we find out why he is always joking around why he is always up for a dare.....
Fearless starts 15 years ago when Dare was only 19 and in love with Noah who at 23 was not ready to settle down. Dare walked away that night............
15 years later Dare not only comes face to face with the man who broke his heart he finds himself sharing a tiny cabin on a cruise ship with him ......
This is a beautiful story about second chance romance about the one that got away but it also has some fantastic quirky characters that made me laugh out loud my favorite being Grams who always wants to know if there is any "slap and tickle" going on . But this story isn't all fun and games we do get some sadness thrown in to keep us wondering if Dare and Noah can get over the past and get a HEA...... and did I mention the hot sex .....
I love the partners at Pier 70 Marina and I really hope we get more books featuring each of them
I received this book for an honest review

Fearless Excerpt © Nicole Edwards 2016

Getting out of that cabin was the only option Dare had. That or he was going to strip Noah naked and ride him until the sun came up. Or vice versa. He didn’t really care which. Okay, yes, he did, but now was not the time for that. He needed to gather his thoughts.
Plus, he needed to return Roan’s key and let him know that he wouldn’t need a place to crash after all.
Then he needed to find food.
God, he was starving. He hadn’t eaten much at the reception because he’d been too nervous. But even if he had, he would still be hungry. That was how he rolled.
By the time they emerged from their cabin, it seemed most of the other cruise-goers had called it a night. The halls were deserted, as was the main deck, where they ended up after making a quick pass through the casino and then deciding against any more gambling for the evening. As it was, the wager between them was steep enough. Dare knew he didn’t have anything else to bet.
So he settled for pizza and soda, which they devoured outside.
For the next hour, they walked around, close but not too close. When he yawned for the third time, Noah suggested they head back, and Dare reluctantly agreed.
He was edgy, he couldn’t deny that. Although they were alone out here—for the most part—being alone in their cabin was decidedly different. No one could happen upon them in there, which meant their clothes could fall off. And then he could… What if he tripped and his dick slipped right into Noah’s mouth? That could be awkward.
Well, the last part wasn’t too bad of an idea, provided it didn’t result in any damage to his dick.
However, that wasn’t going to happen tonight. Not on purpose and not by accident.
