Cannon Colter is quintessential hero material: chiseled jawline, shredded bodythe works. He's also the guy who rescued Yvette Sweeny from kidnappers, only to put an end to her romantic ...more
So I finished this book early yesterday and since then I have been trying to decide how I want to rate it. There was things about this book I loved and then there was the heroine. Yvette was my main problem with this book but not my only one. Let me start with my feeling for Cannon. While I loved Cannon he did some shit at the start of the book that really bugged me. See I have no problem with man-whores, or men that sleep with other women after they ...more
No Limits is book one in the Ultimate series by Lori Foster. I won this book in a prize package from a give-a-way.
Yvette Sweeny moved away from Warfield, Ohio three years ago. Although she has been back for short visits to see her grandfather who had raised her, she no longer felt comfortable in the town she once called home, or safe.
Shed known Cannon Colter for years, and probably loved him for just as long. But she was young, just a teenager. She used every flirtation she was capable of at ...more

When need be, I can fight dirty, though usually I just fight for sport. But when it comes to you, I fight to win.
I've been a HUGE Lori Foster fan since reading her very first SBC Fighters book years ago. Ever since then, I've been stalking the poor author in hopes that'd she'd write another MMA series. Considering that she's a big fan of sport and it's very evident in her writing, it just makes it all the ...more
As is my way, I seem to start many series in the middle. This Ultimate series by Lori Foster was one of them. I am a Lori Foster reader and when I was able to read Holding Strong the second book, I met all of the crew and didn't feel the need to read this book.
I have since read the 3rd book and soon the long awaited coupling of Armie and Merissa will happen in Fighting Dirty. With that in mind, I thought I would go to the beginning and see how all of this ...more
We all remember Cannon & Yvette from the Love Undercover Series. And we all fell hopelessly in love with him. He was the young & sexy & mysterious neighborhood-watchman who tried to help wherever help was needed. And Yvette was the girl who had a mad crush on him - and he liked her too, but she was just too young and too broken after everything that happened. And then she left for California. But he never forgot her these last three years.
Now they're all grown up!!!!
Cannon is a ...more
I loved, loved, loved Cannon "Saint" Colter! Hes everything we come to expect from a Lori Foster hero; alpha protective, loyal, and definitely sexy!!! Yvette is the girl who always loved Cannon, but ran away from him, her hometown, and the horrific memories that continue to plague her.
We first met Cannon in Getting Rowdy, and get to know both him and Yvette in Dash of Peril LF reveals their back story in No Limits, so if you haven't read either of those you won't feel lost). ...more
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 ...more
It mixes them all in a strange stalkerish "love gone wrong" way and focuses on providing you with the best quality of man candy.
The story itself was pleasing- with quite a few twists and turns and enough amount of bickering and hotness of male characters.
However, it should be said that you're required to read other series written by the author as sometimes I felt lost when the goings of previous events were mentioned and I don't recall reading ...more
Cannon Colter, is the ideal hero, but he truly became a true hero for Yvette Sweeny on a horrific night that still haunts her. Cannon saved her when she was kidnaped. Yvette fell in love with Cannon, but Cannon thought Yvette too young and distancing himself from her was the hardest thing he had to do. Now its three years later, he has just returned from one of the hardest fights that he managed to win, and Yvette's ...more

I think the problem with this is that I can't connect with the heroine. I'm excited to read Cannon's book because he is such an interesting character (not to mention HOT). On the other hand, I find Yvette a bland heroine.I first met Yvette on Dash of Peril and though she may be a whiny kid on that book, I kinda understand the phase she is going on.
I don't understand why I find her now boring. Maybe that's just how I see her character or maybe this is just the slump talking.
Nevertheless, this ...more
My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐
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 ...more
I might be a bit generous with that rating. It's hard when I don't like something, but there's nothing really wrong with it. This just was too sugar-sweet and the h got on my nerves. By the time they finally had sex, I was bored. DNF'd at 87%. I'm sure others will like this novel/series.
So, to the important bits...
Just another damsel-in-distress, the new twist here being she knew it and wanted to make sure no one felt put out by having to help her...oh, wait, that's not new. And ...more

I'm sorr - Actually I'm not. I couldn't continue with this book and I'd sooner jump off a building then finish it. I couldn't connect with both characters AT ALL. Their attraction is superficial as hell and I found myself in an extremely unpleasant mood as the story progressed.
And I thought. "WTF AM I WASTING MY TIME?"
Yvette: A very nice, cute woman who has a troubling past.
Cannon: A hot hunky, MMA fighter.
I just love the chemistry Yvette and Cannon share.
This story was good, It had a few twist and turns. Some parts made me laugh, some parts me angry, some parts made my heart melt, some parts made me cry.
The story follows a mixture of 3 things: 1) Love, 2) Fight, 3) Lust.
Lori Foster does not disappoint. This book was very well written.
it makes you hot, it leaves you ...more
Wow, I'm so glad that I picked up this new Ultimate series! It's been a while since I've read a book by Lori Foster, but as soon as I heard the books were featuring fighters in MMA, I couldn't resist reading No Limits. I jumped right in, and had no problem falling for this new series without having read its prequel, Hard Knocks yet. Of course, I enjoyed this one so much there's no doubt I'll soon be reading it as well. With No Limits author Lori Foster returns to the world of MMA- mixed martial
I have to say I just adore Cannon. Strong, fun, successful.... and only has eyes for the one girl he has loved for years, Yvette.
Wow, what Yvette has gone through! How emotionally strong she is was amazing. Oh, and can't forget that she is still in love with Cannon!

Exciting and sexy, filled with genuine emotion and pulse-pounding action, No Limits is an addictive page-turner.
The story of Cannon and Yevette this is the first in the ultimate series. I love all the characters but it was the secondary characters that really push this book to a 4.5 for me. Yevette and Cannon must deal with issues but they honestly just didnt have the right zing for me. I would read this book again as its connected to a series I love. ...more
