Boozer, brawler, ladies’ man – nineteen-year-old Harris Derwent is not a good guy.
His one attempt to play the hero – helping out his old flame, Rachel Watts – has landed him in hospital. Now injured, broke, and unemployed, he’s stuck back in the country, at his father’s mercy. Harris needs to pay off his dad’s debts, and fast. But working as a runner for a drug cartel is a dangerous path – especially if Harris agrees to narc…
Eighteen-year-old Amita Blunt is the perfect police sergeant’s daughter – practical, trustworthy, and oh-so responsible. Getting involved in Harris’s case was never part of the plan. But working at the hospital, she’s invisible – which makes her the ideal contact for a boy feeding information back to the police…
Harris and Amie’s connection is sizzling hot – but if the cartel finds out about them, things could get downright explosive. Backed into a corner, with everything at stake, it’s time for Harris and Amie to find out if love really has no limits…
This book, This book. Okay to get the obvious out the way, Harris is such a babe and I just want to cuddle him and wipe his problems away. Coming back to reality, problems are not solved by cuddles but even without this book tackled them beautiful actually I may be bending the truth a bit there were some pretty epic hugs involved.
Harris was a side character in the last book of the Every trilogy, after the epic ending of Every move Harris stuck back in the country with a wounded leg meaning hospitals and physio is needed. He ends up having to stay with his abusive father while he’s at his most vulnerable.
Harris finds out he’s Dads in debt and after all the shit his Dad’s done still tries to dig him out of it. Along the way Harris is caught up in some serious shit, running with drug dealers, mercenaries, and the cops, every turn he makes is full of danger.
The thing I wasn’t expecting in this book was how well the topic of ice was dealt with, ice is a horrible drug and ruins people it’s also super cheap and really messing up small and big towns right now, breaking up families, ruining lives and the dealers have become on the same level as heroin dealers.
No Limits deals with substance abuse, ice rage, addiction, parental abuse, ODing, death and how easy it is for someone to get sucked in to the criminal world. Sometimes the more appealing option for people is the idea of easy money selling drugs rather than a shitty minimum wage doing a job they hate that will never pay off the debts they have before the bank comes in.
Ellie is one of my favourite authors and I stayed awake late into the night to finish this, the tension between Harris and his family, the romance budding between Harris and Amie, the very real risk of death, it all builds up to an epic ending and I had tears in my eyes and sat there wondering where my extra 100 pages were I NEED ALL THE HARRIS STORIES.
No Limits broke me, built me up, and broke me again.
Now I know a lot of people haven’t read this (you should change that asap) BUT If you have picked up this book what did you think?
Did you sit there hugging your ereader at 1am in the morning wondering why there were no more pages and trying to not sob at how amazing it all was? No? Uh… me either… I definitely did not do that *shifty eyes*
