No Limits – My first Lori Foster Read!

Posted July 21, 2017 by Berls in Review / 6 Comments

Well I’ve finally read a Lori Foster book! No Limits was good and I’d really like to see some of the side characters’ stories. So why only 3.5? Well, something happened that really irked me and the “mystery’s” conclusion was kinda blah.

To be fair, No Limits is not a true mystery. It’s just that there’s a plot there with a mysterious edge – Yvette, and by extension Cannon, are facing some mild attacks. Basically vandalism – small fires, slashed tires, etc. So there’s the question of who’s doing it all to them. I thought the who was well done, even if I was 95% sure from the get-go. It’s the motivation that was blah. I’m not sure I even understood it really, it didn’t make a ton of sense to me. So a decent mystery with a major huh/blah moment for me.

Other than that, No Limits‘s plot was good and kept me engaged. And I really love the characters – well, I LIKE Cannon and Yvette and LOVE the side characters. I want Armie’s story – he’s easily my favorite character. What I liked about Cannon and Yvette’s romance is that they have MAJOR history – so the speed and intensity make sense. It’s kind of a second chance romance, except that I don’t think either of them saw the first chance as anything real.

That being said, Yvette has a problem that I thought was going to add a really intense element to their relationship. I don’t want to spoil it for y’all, but I’ll just say I was not at all happy with its resolution. It irked me and I can’t explain why without spoiling but it really hampered my enjoyment. I’d probably have given No Limits a solid 4 – 4.5 stars otherwise.

So really, No Limits is a solid romance with great characters and a good plot – and if the two things that hung me up don’t bother you, you’ll probably like it even more than I did!

3.5 stars pretty good

Berls's first Lori Foster - No Limits - was pretty good, just a couple hang ups. 3.5/5 stars! Click To Tweet

    • I think the event (I’ve never been) is what put her on my radar as an author to read. I gave her another chance since this one and enjoyed the book much more. But still, haven’t gotten hooked on a series, either.

    • Thanks Lexxie! I think that has a lot to do with me not loving it. One of those instances where stand alone isn’t necessarily true. {{Hugs}}

    • I actually have read another one since this (it’s a review I wrote in 2015! Lol!) and I liked it much more. It was Don’t Tempt Me. So yeah, she’s good; from talking to some others I think part of this was connecting to another series and so without that connection I didn’t feel it like fans.
