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…

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 famous Mixed Martial Arts Fighter and he's still running the rec center in town, together with his fighting buddies Gage, Armie, Denver & Stack....
And Yvette is back in town too. Because her grandfather died recently and left her his house, his closed-down pawn shop and lots more. But he didn't leave it all to her - half of everything goes to Cannon.
Probably her grandfather's way of making sure those two can heal each other and will one day end up together.

Even though 90% of the town's female population is throwing themselves at Cannon, he only has eyes for the girl that got away three years ago.
But she was hurt pretty bad back then, physically, but even more inside. And he knows he'll have to be careful with her - not spook her into running away again.
He wants her to stay in town. He just wants her, period.

And of course Yvette wants him too - who could resist this amazing piece of male perfection?☺

He had an athlete's body, a fighter's strength and an angel's heart - all wrapped up in gorgeous good looks.

But she thinks she's somehow broken inside.....

Then we have the little side stories of our future book's characters - like the amazingly funny Armie - who might or might not have a thing for Cannon's sister Merissa.
And then there's Denver, who might or might not be interested in Merissa's roommate Cherry☺

But of course the main focus is on Cannon & Yvette.

And if their past experiences weren't enough of a problem between them, there's also Yvette's horrible ex Heath....he'll be making some problems for our new couple....
And he's not the only problem they have to face....


I'm not telling you that of course ☺


When you read the prequel to this new series: HARD KNOCKS, then you already know about all the guys at the gym. And of course we all can't help but remember Cannon!
Back when I read about him for the first time in the Love Undercover Series I was soooo hoping that Lori would one day give him his own story - and now here he is. And whoa he is sooo amazing!!!

Phew  o.O Can I have my own Cannon please???

I just totally loved this book.
It starts out so sweet and innocent and adorable, as they get to know each other again.
But Cannon just can't help himself - he has to up his seducing a little bit and it's sooo sexy and hot and grrrr... I loved it!

Add a little suspense and the amazing side-cast - mostly in the form of Armie - and this was an amazing sexy Romance novel!

Oh and I almost forgot to mention that we meet our darling hot bar boy Rowdy again!!!! ♥ And Logan & Dash & Margo too!! ☺

It isn't your typical fighter story - if you were expecting something like REAL or Beautiful Disaster - not much fighting going on here - but I didn't miss that at all!!!
The story and the people in it .... everything is so adorable and cute you can't help but love the book!
The most adorable thing is to see all those big bad fighters falling for their girls one after the other ☺

NO LIMITS  - was an amazingly beautiful & sexy Romance!
You'll love it!!!!!

I WOULD SOOO LOVE IT if someone would make a movie/tv-series out of this book - just so we could stare and fangirl at Cannon all day long!!!!

Now I can't wait for the other books in this series!!!
HOLDING STRONG will be book #2 - coming April 2015
It will be Denver & Cherry's story!!!! ☺☺☺
