NO LIMITS by Lori Foster

(Ultimate #1)
by Lori Foster
ARC Review
Release: August 26th, 2014

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️

"Cannon Colter is quintessential hero material: chiseled jawline, shredded body—the works. He's also the guy who rescued Yvette Sweeny from kidnappers, only to put an end to her romantic dreams. These days, she's older, smarter, determined to face whatever life throws her way. Even the prospect of sharing a house and business with Cannon.

Cannon knew Yvette wanted him three years ago. But she was young—and some things are worth waiting for. Thrown together by her grandfather's legacy, he realizes how deep Yvette's scars really go, and how much danger lurks in their quiet town. As pent-up desire explodes between them, protecting her becomes the only fight that matters. And he'll break all the rules to do it…


Oh my..... Cannon Colter just ruined me for every other man out there!!!
(Not that there are many, any, waiting in the wings....) 
Hard, gentle, sweet, fierce, loyal, hard, trustworthy, protective, hard, hot, did I mention hard? Hmmm.... Stuff that dreams are made of.

I remember Cannon from Lori Foster's earlier books, at that time he was working at the bar and it is how he met Yvette in the first place. Cannon himself was still a young pup at the time, but already hell-bent on saving the neighborhood. A penchant for fighting, he chose to take his talent into the ring and became quite successful. He never lost sight of his friends or his neighborhood though, so when he was mentioned as co-beneficiary of the old pawnshop, he didn't hesitate making his way home. Of course, knowing the one person who had never been far from his mind was the other beneficiary in the will was Yvette, was an added bonus.

After the traumatic incident she endured three years ago, Yvette had left her grandfather and his pawnshop behind, finding her own legs and doing her best to forget. But forgetting Cannon was not that easy, especially since he had been her focus long before he rescued her and then kissed the stuffing out of her. To her dismay, three years had done nothing to diminish the attraction, as she found out when faced with Cannon over her grandfather's will. But far be it from her to depend on another, she had managed quite well on her own, and Cannon had rescued her more than enough for one lifetime. If only Cannon would listen.....

Can I just say.... the man is a saint? Or perhaps an idiot.... waiting and waiting, while Yvette is practically foaming at the mouth to get her greedy little hands on his..... ahem..... him. The first is saddled with an overdeveloped sense of chivalry, and the second with an underdeveloped sense of self-worth. Of course this equals much wasted time! But the build up is deliciously wicked...

Lori Foster transitions and melds one series into a new one seamlessly, giving us an entire new cast of characters to fawn over, while at the same time allowing us to stay in touch and keep track of old friends from books past. The new series, both in HARD KNOCKS and NO LIMITS, has a slightly harder edge, the men a bit more controlled aggressive, with tempers that can be absolutely deadly when unleashed but who turn to gentle giants in the hands of their women. 

Exactly what I had hoped and wanted from Cannon's story, the man we had seen glimpses of before, all fleshed out into what he had promised to become. A series with enough punch, suspense and heated sexual build up to completely satisfy. I cannot wait to see more..... A certain person with a proclivity for kink comes to mind........

✨No Limits is right!! First round goes to Lori Foster!✨
