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

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…

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Lori Foster is my hero again!  Spinning off from another series, she has created a world filled with MMA fighters, love, romance and suspense.  I was transfixed, holding onto the edge of my seat, waiting for the hammer blow…

Cannon Colter, the Saint, is at the top of his game in the SBC, a MMA fighters dream.  He has worked hard for what he has and where he is in this world.  Cannon also opened a youth center in his home town, to continue to help his neighborhood by offering a place for the young kids to hang out and train.  However, even though he’s been around the world, his heart is caught up with the one girl, now woman, that has been on his mind the whole time, Yvette Sweeny.

Yvette has tried to run away from her insecurities and dreaded past. A past filled with such horror that she feels like she’s broken for all intimate relationships.  She has to come back to town when her grandfather dies, leaving her and the one man she will always love, to take care of what is left. Yvette has tried to make herself into a new woman, and by leaving all the terrible stuff in the past, be stronger, more secure…and seeing Cannon again, brings about all the past feeling she has for him.  Along with these feelings is also the undeniable love she has for him. 

Although fate has a plan for Yvette and Cannon which will blow their minds, their struggle and plight to get there is a beautiful story that made me feel good and crazy at the same time.  Will Cannon and Yvette put the past behind them and move forward?  Can Yvette trust Cannon with her heart?  Will Cannon break down the walls Yvette has around her heart? ~TSRBR
