A surprise inheritance reunites a mixed martial arts fighter with the woman he’s never forgotten in the first in a smoldering new series from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster…

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…

Review:

No Limits is the first full novel for Lori Foster’s new series about mixed material arts (and romance) called Ultimate (see the novella HARD KNOCKS for an intro to the series!). Hence the sharp looking dude on the cover. If you’ve read Foster’s Love Undercover series than our hero is no stranger to you. IT’S CANNON. And anyone who’s read the love undercover series, I can pretty much guarantee has been waiting for him to get his own book.

The interesting thing with this book is Cannon and Yvette already have a history going into this book and it’s almost like a second chance at romance. Though no worries if you haven’t read Foster’s previous book, the book is still easily a standalone. I love the change in dynamic between Cannon and Yvette. In the past, it was always Yvette chasing Cannon, while he thought she was too young and tired to hold back more. Now Yvette is back and is a little stronger and more independent and it’s Cannon doing a little bit more the pursuing.

I love that Cannon can be pretty alpha male when he needs to be but is never a jerky alpha male and is really a totally sweetheart (who knows how to make girls swooooon).

“[…] Poor Heath knows what I want, and he’s not happy about it.”

“What you…?” She cleared her throat, frowned. “Don’t be ridiculous.” Then, worrying a little, her voice small and hesitant, she asked, “What is it you want?”

“You.”

It was nice to see Cannon and Yvette grow as characters, both individually and together. And I loved the new friends we  meet, from Cannon’s mixed material art friends, to Yvette’s California girls.

And because it’s Lori Foster, her romance novels are usually packed with action and this one is no exception. Among the flirting  and growing up, there’s someone bent on ruining their lives.

Overall, it was a entertaining and fun read. It’s what you would expect from a Lori Foster book, great romance and an intriguing plot. The set up for futures with all the friends has me excited for more books in the series!

  1. I have heard great things about this novel and the mixed martial arts angle really intrigues me. Plus the cover is easy on the eyes hehe. Glad to hear you enjoyed it, it sounds like you’d kind of have to pick up the Love Undercover to really appreciate this one fully. Great review!

  2. Hee-Hee – I just picked this up and can’t wait to read it, Cyn! I have not had the chance to read the novella, so I’m glad that I can just dive in. I’m looking forward to all the action and romance, plus its Lori Foster, right. Glad you liked No Limits!!

    Have a great weekend, Cyn 🙂
