Publisher's summary

Krew doesn’t need a daddy or a guy twice his age. Yet, somehow, he ended up with both.

Free-spirited Krew likes his men willing and disposable. One-night stands are all he’s looking for. Love has only ever hurt him. The last thing he needs is Max, a man more than 20 years his senior and a widowed Daddy Dom. 

Krew is not a boy. He doesn’t like spankings or kink. And he most certainly doesn’t date. 

But one night of fun won’t hurt anyone, right? 

It’s just a game. 

Until emotions and feelings sneak in where they don’t belong. 

If the walls around Krew’s hearts crumble, Max will see the broken man at his core. Will he be able to handle all Krew hides from the world and teach him there is nothing to fear about love?

Fearless is a hurt-comfort age-gap mild Daddy/boy-themed MM romance with mild angst. It is part of the Trials of Fear series but can be listened to as a stand-alone. It was originally marked as a companion novel but has been integrated into the series as Book 4. There is no new content.

A steamy age gap, hurt/comfort romance

Max and Krew wete raw, relatable and so emotional together.

The chemistry between them was intense, palpable and undeniable from the start.


This was a sweet and steamy hurt/comfort, age gap, daddy boy romance.


Adam Gold performed an emotional and heartfelt narration

So glad to get Krew’s story

Krew is the heart of the group. He might be the comic relief, the fierce defender, in his own way a caretaker. Fiercely independent. An ancillary character in everyone else’s story. That person always has a depth, a history, a story of their own. I’m so glad we got to see his vulnerability and his HEA.

Nicky James is quickly becoming a favorite author. These stories are so well crafted.

And Adam Gold has secured his position among my favorite narrators. When I know I’m listening to one voice, but mid-story it feels like I’m hearing multiple people, that’s some fine voice acting. He captures the essence of the scenes and all the appropriate emotions too.

Great story outstanding narration.

I really enjoyed the story. I would put it as a 4.5 stars so I’ll just round up to five. For me, what really distinguished it was Adam Gold’s narration. This guy has just incredible talent. He gave a fantastic British accent, deep and mellow from Max, and crazy Twink for Krew. But I have to say Max’s voice was just like liquid chocolate. Really amazing and I loved listening to it. So that was really the stand out for me in this audiobook.

Krew’s HEA

Phobia: an extreme or irrational fear or an aversion to something
Philophobia – the fear of falling in love or forming attachments of any sort

I have thoroughly enjoyed Nicky James Trials of Fear series, and so was especially anxious to pick up this book. I loved Krew – especially in book 2. His affection and caring for Rory – who feared sunlight – was touching. Well, they were, uh, special buddies on occasion, and Krew trusted Rory to watch his beloved cat. But then Rory met Adrian and those salad days of no-strings-attached sex came to an end. Adrian and Rory don’t share.

Krew continued undaunted. He works in a gay bar as a server so he’s got his pick. But never more than one or two nights, and always at the other guy’s place. Wouldn’t want the guy getting feelings. Krew runs from feelings like crazy.

I remembered the scene in a previous book where he ran away from an older man and hid in the back of the bar. Of course this book gave me the opportunity to see Krew’s side of the story. Man, he ran from Max? I’d be running toward such a fabulous man.

Max has a bit of a tragic backstory which I won’t get into, but he’s been alone for a long time and not really looking. Then he sets eyes on Krew and his world tilts. He rescues Krew, and takes on an almost father-like figure. A daddy. But Krew’s not into that stuff. He doesn’t need a minder. He doesn’t need a daddy. He needs a good hard you know what and then he can move on.

Except Max seems to be the one man he can’t forget, and when Max moves to town for an extended period of time, Krew has a decision to make – hold out or indulge? And if he indulges, what about all those pesky emotions? There’s also the massive age gap. Twenty-eight years is nothing to sneeze at. It means Krew is often on uneven ground, but perhaps that’s where he needs to be?

Krew is, of course, damaged. I LOVE damaged heroes and Nicky does damaged like no one’s business. I cheered for Krew, especially when he confronted his demons. I was angry for the people in his life who’d hurt him. I’ve faced other cruelties in my life, and I think that made Krew even more empathetic to me.

But the love of a good man… Max is persistent. Max is patient. Max is willing to wait for Krew to get his head out of his rear end. And Krew eventually does and I got my sparkly happy ending.

I can’t rave about a Trials of Fear book without gushing over Adam Gold. His narration for this series (for all the Nicky James books he does) is brilliant. I loved his super deep voice for Max and that Krew was light but not flighty. He completely nailed this book, and I can’t recommend it enough.

Krew gets his HEA

Krew we’ve been aquatinted with for a few books. Adam Gold’s narration really made Krew so much more enjoyable to listen to!

We get Krew’s backstory and it’s as sad as you’d think. It makes him not trust love.

Maxwell enters his life and basically takes a wrecking ball to his notions about love. How he always thought he should keep everyone at arms length. Maxwell has a sad backstory as well. He’s ready to try love again. The voice Adam uses for Maxwell is SO sexy. I loved it.

NGL, I wished Krew’s parents suffered some consequences. Sadly, they skated by. Ugh. Those parents!

Maxwell and Krew needed each other and their HEA was sweeter than expected. Loved the narration.
I look forward to the next book in audio. Adam does excellent work on this series. Highly recommend!

Angsty age gap romance

It took me a few chapters to get into the story of  bartender and older businessman Max but I soon became invested in their lives.

I enjoyed the was their relationship grew and evolved. Their story was well paced and had great flow.

This story had a bit of everything. There was joy and fun but also sadness and angst.

I especially enjoyed the narration. The voices for Krew and Max seemed spot on to me.

Another amazing book

I absolutely loved this book. Adam Gold nailed Krew! He is sassy, mouthy, and flirty. He has got to be one of my favorite characters ever. I love they way he’s working through his phobia. Maxwell is so patient and loving. It’s a great match.

Loved it

I loved Krew in book two in this series and was so happy that he got a book. Max is an amazing character and he's the only one who can help our fearless boy fall in love. It's a wonderful story full of Krew shenanigans in the middle of this high angst series, perfect palate cleanser for what's to come next in the series. Nicky James is a wonderful author who can write anything and Adam Gold has an amazing range and does the emotion so well that he really brings these characters to life.

Krew!!!

Listening to Adam Gold narrate is an experience. An immersive experience. He draws you into the story word by word, line by line. His narration style makes you feel like you are part of the story. It’s akin to listening to a play and hearing your favorite characters brought to life. His narration of Krew and Max’s story was no different than his past storytelling of this series.He nailed Krew’s awesomeness and was the epitome of kindness and patient as Max. If you’ve been listening (reading) along in the Trials of Fear series, Krew really needs no introduction. If you haven’t, you should because all the stories are amazing. Krew grabbed at me, and so many others, when we first met him as Rory’s best friend in “Shades of Darkness”. I fell for his fierce, sassy, sweet and dazzling personality. As we could all see his outrageous flirty behavior helped guard his heart and kept others at arms length. Until Max. Max with his nurturing and kind personality, he was the perfect match for Krew. And he let Krew know that every day as he tried to bring down his walls. My heart broke for Krew’s past hurts. I loved seeing Krew find his happy ever after and loved visiting with some of our favorite Dewhurst residents past. Listening to Krew’s story reminded me how much I miss visiting with Rory, Adrian, and of course Ireland and Raven. I have a feeling there is a re-listen of their respective stories very soon! I couldn’t recommend Krew and Max more!
