ARC Review ~ No Limits (Ultimate #1) by Lori Foster

No Limits (Ultimate, #1)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: 26th August 2014

Publisher: Harlequin

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…

My Opinion

So I have read a lot of books with an MMA backdrop lately and this is probably up there with some of my favourites. There were a few things that have stopped it reaching five stars but I'll explain that in a minute.

First of all I really did enjoy this book. I love strong, protective alpha makes and I think they're even hotter when they're a fighter. This sums up Cannon exactly. However he also had a caring side and he wasn't domineering like a lot of characters I read. Cannon genuinely put Yvette first and cared about her well-being. I also liked how close the fighters were and that they accepted Yvette. Armie was a laugh and always put a smile on my face so I'm hoping he gets a story soon. 

As well as this I liked the development of the characters emotions. The progress was believable and it made way for some hot scenes. I also enjoyed Yvette's change and how she dealt with the past. I thought the issues were handled well and that her feelings were believable and real.

Like I mentioned before, the reason I didn't rate this book a five was because of some of the plot structure. For me the ending kind of came out of no where and, although I won't spoil what happens, I felt it was randomly added on. I could see small links but for me there needed to be more development throughout the entire novel and for more suspicion and options to have been created. Personally I felt it all a bit sudden and rushed and it did feel like I was reading a different book.

Overall though, this was an enjoyable read and I look forward to seeing where the author takes the series. If you're getting into the MMA craze, you may want to check this books out as Cannon is a great character.
