"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"--Back cover.… (more)

****Full Review****

There is nothing more attractive than a good man and Cannon is one of the best.

No Limits picks up Cannon "The Saint" Colter and Yvette Sweeny's story that started in Dash of Peril. (This is a standalone and the back story is explained but trust me, this couple is so squee worthy to read about you'll want to go back and read that book just to catch any glimpse you can of the two together) Yvette's grandfather has died and Cannon finds out he has been left half of the grandfather's house and pawn shop business. In a letter, the grandfather explains that he wants Cannon to help Yvette come out the shell she has erected around herself. Why Cannon? Well, even as a teen Cannon has been the neighborhood enforcer and worked to keep it clean of drugs and criminals; he helped keep the pawn shop safe. This, along with an incident he went through with Yvette in Dash of Peril, led to Yvette having a serious case of hero worship. Cannon held back as he thought she was too young at the time (she was 20) and thus made Yvette feel like she was always just an annoyance. Now three years has passed and Cannon is ready to make his move.

No Limits is a heart wrenching, pounding, and clenching story of two people who lived through a harrowing experience working to reconnect. Yvette thought when she left town three years ago she was freeing Cannon of any responsibility he may have felt towards her and could pursue his career in the MMA arena, Cannon ultimately let her go because he thought she needed time on her own to grow but harbors some hurt as what he saw as her leaving him. Now that she is back in town and he has some time off from his MMA career he is not going to let her go. What follows is a story full of deep emotions; grieving, hurt, yearning and ultimately love. Cannon must work to not only show Yvette he is truly committed to her but also help heal the wounds of that past experience they had. The way he holds himself back, the tenderness, the understanding, and how he is willing to keep fighting for Yvette, will have you enchanted and rooting for him all the way. Yvette will have your heart breaking as she refuses to believe Cannon could possibly have feelings for her, struggles to overcome her past trauma, and works to reclaim herself. The tension, passion, wanting, and desire between this couple ignites the pages.

The only minor grievances I had involved the two story threads of Yvette's stalker ex-boyfriend and escalating danger of someone trying to scare Yvette and Cannon out of town, one or the other should have been cut as they kind of clogged up the ending and the book seemed to run a little long. Although, I would not envy the editor who would have to choose what scenes to cut or trim. Even with those complaints this is a must read. The way Cannon loves Yvette is why the whole romance genre exists in the first place. This is a couple that will stick with you for a long time. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, which I'm betting will feature Cannon's sister Merissa and friend Armie. I have a feeling Merissa is going to be a challenge Armie won't be able to resist.

No Limits continues the story started in Dash of Peril. Yvette and Cannon are two people with a history. That history causes problems between them, but of course they overcome. I connected with these characters because their relationship did not exist in a vacuum. You felt like this could happen. Plus, Cannon is just too much to resist. Tall, dark, and a stand up guy. Foster spins an excellent novel. ( )

First reviewed on One Curvy Blogger

I went and purchased No Limits right after I had finished Holding Strong for its book tour. I knew as a diehard fan of Lori Foster that I would probably enjoy No Limits, but I didn’t realize how familiar it would be. So I went to my kindle app and what do you know, I had received a review copy from the publisher last year and completely forgot to review it! Whoops. Guess it’s karma that I went and spent almost eight bucks on a book I already had. *sigh* since I love the author, I wasn’t too upset, but sometimes I just have to *facepalm* at the dumb shit I do when my brain fails to hold on to things.

Regardless of my stupidity, it did not affect my love of this book. I’ve had the hots for Cannon since he first appeared in Getting Rowdy and was glad when his book was just as awesome as I thought it would be – even the second time around! He is fucking sexy in this book, even more so when he’s incredibly sexually frustrated. *grin* I’m not going to write a big review for this one because I didn’t take the time to write up notes for No Limits. I pretty much went ham on Cannon and Yvette after finishing Holding Strong. Nothing was gonna keep me for getting in some sexy time with my favorite MMA fighter of all time!

If you love a sexy sports romance, why haven’t you picked up Lori Foster yet? She has to be the first MMA romance writer that kick started the MMA sport taking off in contemporary romance. I believe she wrote her first in the early 2000s, but I could be wrong. Anyways, what I’m trying to say is READ THIS FREAKING BOOK. ( )

“I can’t stop picturing you without the shirt and shorts.” His blunt admission left her blank. “Naked in running shoes?” His mouth quirked. “Okay, you can maybe lose the shoes, too.”

I have been very stressed out lately and have been in need of something to take my mind off of my worries. This book was the perfect thing for my mind right now. This book was light years better than the novella that started the series. The characters were much more compelling and the story was richer. Quite frankly I just couldn't get enough of Cannon.

Cannon and Yvette have a somewhat difficult past. When Yvette comes back to town after her grandfather's death she finds herself thrown together with Cannon when her grandfather leaves both her and Cannon an inheritance. Yvette used to follow Cannon around with puppy love until some pretty dark things happened and she left town to get away from everything (especially Cannon). Now that she is back in town Cannon realizes that he can't let Yvette get out of his life again.

I liked that while Cannon and Yvette shared a history they still had to go through the process of building a relationship. Reading about their past was horrifying and it really explaining why Yvette was the way she was. Cannon could be a little aggressive in his quest to seduce Yvette but you could definitely tell that he cared about her and was clearly protective of her.

I really loved the secondary characters. I just loved Armie, even when he was being all perverted. I loved getting to read the tension between him and Rissa. I seriously cannot wait to read his story (I assume there will be a book about him and Rissa). I also really loved how not only Armie but all the guys really supported Yvette and felt protective of her.

I did have a couple problems with this book. I wasn't all that enthusiastic about the Heath storyline. At times it felt like it was thrown in there just so that there would be some conflict. Also some of the events at the end got to be a bit outlandish in relation to the rest of the story. I was baffled and what was happening and how crazy some people were acting. Nevertheless I still ended up really enjoying the story and where Cannon and Yvette ended up at end. I am really looking forward to continuing this series and getting to read Denver's story (but can Armie's story please be next after Denver's?). ( )

Good start to the Ultimate series. Definitely a hot read. Cannon Colter is a great hero - alpha, kindhearted, protective, PATIENT. Thank the gods he is also patient because Yvette becomes a broken record with her insecurities and whining about how she's just in everyone's way. Twenty chapters in and she's still apologizing for taking up space. Just roll your eyes and move along.

Armie took my heart in this one - can't wait to read his story! ( )
