About No Limits: 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…

Surprisingly I would have to give this one 3.5 stars despite my eager anticipation for Cannon’s story. It started off a little slow and took me awhile to get into the rhythm of the story.

I loved Cannon and am so happy he got his own book. He was the epitome of a to die for hero. Not only is he uber-sexy but he also has that sort of personality that is chivalrous without being sexist, has this amazing friendship with both male and female friends and is so invested in the community’s well being.

The main reason I didn’t enjoy this one as much as past books despite being crazy in love with Cannon was Yvette. She is understandably scarred from her experiences in Dash of Peril but her quest to not have Cannon or anyone else view her as a victim grated on me. It’s one thing to assert a new found confidence, it’s a whole different ballpark to do stupid things just to try and prove a point. At that point she wasn’t proving anything except a lack of common sense. I found it grating throughout the story and wanted to shake some sense into Yvette.

I don’t want to end on a negative note so I will say Lori Foster sets up an amazing array of characters that I can’t wait to see in upcoming books. Cannon’s friends, especially Armie, were hilarious and so charismatic that I am itching to find out their stories.
