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…

Marney has spoilt her Every  fans .  For those who championed for the story of Harris, thank you.    You won’t be disappointed and will fall in love all over again with Harris.

Like many other readers out there, I fell in love with Watts and Mycroft the moment , I was introduced to them, a couple years ago.

There was something about those characters, their turmoils   that made them so relatable teenagers . Yet their adventures that took us cross continents and in to the deep ends of things.  It ended with a bang, returning to Five Miles, the beginning, the small country town, the reason why  Watts moved to Melbourne.  And in that chaotic mess, we met Harris.

There  is nothing extraordinary about Harris, he was a country boy with issues that were well known around the area for all the wrong reasons. However in one book ,  he took our hearts and grew on us as we saw glimpses of something more then the boy who stood there  . He wasn’t expandable character added in anymore to bring things full circle . He was part of the story, the world that Marney had created and he had a story to tell .

No Limits is Harris’s story, a story that doesn’t shy away from what was  mentioned in Every Move.  It’s a coming of age type of story but that only the beginnings of this story.  Picking up the pieces left from Every Move. No Limits leaves no stone unturned. Harris isn’t a knight in shining armour hero . He is broken and destroyed.  The moves he made leading to this point have left him in a hospital back home.  No girl, no job and back under his father’s reach.  Isn’t a pretty sight and Harris is barely swimming above water but it’s Harris. He doesn’t expect anything better and has resided himself to same old life, he tried to escape from .

Until his two worlds come clashing together, as hard truths come to light and Harris is left is an  position that no one would of saw coming….

A narc and his only contact to his old  life is Amita. The sergeant’s daughter. Talk about total flip to his life.

Something  I didn’t expect to see coming  as Harris showed glimpses. He still was young and reckless. He was growing up though and honestly I didn’t know what to do   except  prepare myself for a story that would be captivating and wouldn’t hold back. As there is no limits when you put yourself into a position like this .

A position that opens a world of possilbities and Amita was an interesting addition to the cast of new characters we met in this novel. Amita is the opposite of Harris and was one of the biggest surprises with this book. She provides grounding to this novel. A dose of everyday reality that contrasts with Harris’s life, she is  structured .  It’s straight forward for her yet she throws herself into this craziness.  She is a champion of Harris, she sees those glimpses we fell in love in. She makes the book for what it is. She gives the missing piece and makes the world just a little bit better.

Something that Harris needs and No Limits just gave us just what we wanted for Harris secretly . A world where things were  things were okay for Harris and gave him what he needed.

For someone who adores the this  world created . No Limits wasn’t an easy read, Marney chose to use this book to make a stance and platform for issues. I loved how she tied back to Every series.  This is wilder, darker look into this world yet it being honest and brutal.  A perspective that was welcome and I enjoyed reading.  Marney surprised me with the depth and detail she went to in this novel. There so much more then what is alluded to in the blurb and No Limits is a fine piece of writing that you don’t want to miss.  You will never be truly satisfied if you haven’t read this book and see Harris get his story.
