When Harlequin sent me an ARC of Lori Fosters' No Limits, I was overjoyed. I opened my email, and lit up from the inside.
I requested a copy when I saw that it involved an SBC fighter, since that's been my favorite of her series. THEN, I realized it was Cannon and Yvette's story from the Love Undercover series, and it was on.
Let me refresh your memory, Cannon and Yvette had SO much chemistry in the Love Undercover series.
Cannon thought she was too young and something horrible happened to her. She ran off to California, while Cannon chased his career. Now, Yvette's grandfather has passed on, and in his will, he's hatched a plan to do some beyond the grave matchmaking. Close proximity can be one hell of a motivation, and when two people already have a spark, WOW!! Get ready to fan your face.
Oh, and let me add, then his friends show up....
I want every new character I met to have their own book. There's hot fighters and Yvette's awesome friend from California. **5 Happy Sighs** [image error] (less)

On the other hand, when I left Jimmy behind in book one, I wanted to slap his face. That gave me reservations, but I trusted the author to fix it and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m not sure if anyone will ever be able to replace Mal as my favorite, but Jimmy tried. He is definitely one smoking hot lover. His dirty talking ways had me fanning my face and steaming up my ereader. On with the review: Lena has a problem keeping jobs. Her tongue refuses to obey and gets her fired more often than it should. Her rage over her sister’s betrayal and her latest job loss, land her in the home of Jimmy Ferris as his sobriety companion. Picking up at the end of book two, Jimmy is turned inside out by the loss of the woman who was like a second mother to him after his real mother abandoned him as a teenager. In his grief, his hard-nosed ways slip just long enough for Lena to get a peek at his heart. She’s hooked. As Lena’s love grew and she dug her heels in determined to strip away his walls, I was rooting for her all the way. I still wanted to punch him in the face. His sticking up for her with her sister went a long way toward winning me. By the time I got to see the man behind his hardened mask, my heart was every bit as much of a mess as Lena’s. Jimmy was simply devastating. This book was 10 times more heartfelt than its hilarious predecessors, but every bit as wonderful. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. My favorite quotes:
‘”Stop hanging around the door when I’m showering. That’s creepy.” I rolled my eyes. It wasn’t like I could see anything through the keyhole. Let’s pretend I didn’t try.”
“He lay on his stomach, ribs working hard to give him back his breath. I’d done that to him, me and my vagina. Go team.”
“My mouth, I want to kill it slowly and painfully in many and varied ways.”
Lead releases July 29th, if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, why are you still reading this?

Plus, I just really adore all things paranormal and this book is jam-packed with it. Now, add in a love triangle and I was SO there. Jupiter Hayes has a choice to make-- which paranormal creature is she destined to be? I had a few good chuckles over this one. There's nothing better than finding a new author. Give this one a try.(less)

I love Peter so much I was thrilled to see a book of poetry dedicated to this darkened world. I wasn't disappointed. It was amazing the way this author managed to weave short poems into a new magical tale. Great book.
Book two: Fall down a surreal rabbit hole with Surreal Peter. In this addition, you get to soar with dragons, hide from a witch and deal with wizards. Another not-to-be-missed chapter in the darkened world.
Book three: When I was a kid, we had tons of fairy tales to enjoy. Although those books are still around and I still love them, I'm finding because of their out-dated subject matters, my children don't enjoy them the way I do. Peter is the solution to this problem. With ghosts, dragons, witches, wizards and all matters magical, this is an attention getter you'll want to check out.
Book Four: Surreal Peter. This one is short poems and a bit different from the rest. It deals more with inner demons and insanity. Awesome read.
Book Five: Crank's Time. It's short thoughts based on the darkened fairy tale. If you haven't checked out this series yet, you have to pick this one up. It has something for everyone.(less)
