"To say that I loved this book is an understatement. The story just completely sucked me in and left me hanging on every word. I turned pages so fast that I thought I'd break the kindle. I had no idea this was a debut novel for this author. She definitely showed her strength in writing this absolutely beautiful book." (Bookalicious Babes Blog)
"This is a really sweet story, aside from all of the horrible things that have happened to each of the men. They have what seems like a complicated relationship, but it is exactly what they each need, when they need it, and it all becomes very clear as the story moves on. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing with this and seeing Josh find his own someone." (The Blogger Girls)

The major thing to give me mixed feelings is that I'm the sort of person who likes maybe a couple of sex scenes thrown in with a good story, and this book is 95% sex and 5% story. When they aren't having sex they are talking about sex.
Part of me does want to find out what happens next, but part of me is still so mad about the end of this book that I'm not sure yet if I'm going to download the next one.
Warning, the rest of my review will contain spoilers because I just have to get it out about why the end makes me mad.
First of all, I'm not fond of ménage romances, this book is on the boarder line of not being one, but just barely, and when Indy and Noah finally become a couple Noah wants to still have sex with Josh but doesn't want Indy to have sex with Josh. It made me very angry at Noah, and then angry at Indy for being okay with that.
Also, there were so many unresolved issues, and I'm only mildly mad about that because it's hinted in the next book's preview that the unresolved issues will carry over into the next book.
Indy is on the run. Due to an unfortunate wrong place, wrong time situation, he ends up staying with Josh and Noah to recuperate from his injuries. While discovering the depth of love and friendship that Josh and Noah share, Indy slowly allows himself to be included in their cocoon of safety. Secrets are shared. Bonds are formed and strengthened.
And while we don’t get the full ending of Indy and Noah’s romance, the cliffhanger is more like gliding off the edge of the cliff to another one not that far away. So yes, there will be more, but the story has a solid closing and you don’t feel like you are left hanging.
For a first-time fiction book, the writing is solid. A few parts of the story seemed to jump from one perspective the other within the next paragraph, but, believe it or not, it works for this story. This isn’t your hearts and flowers romance. It is emotional, full of angst and the characters are flawed and even broken. The romance comes from sharing those flaws, accepting them and loving each other despite or even because of them.
I have already pre-ordered book 2 (No Limits), which is coming just a month after this one. And I believe books 3 and 4 are a month each after that. I am a totally series junkie and love that I will not have to wait too long to read all of this one.
Nora had me from the first "wicked." When Indy called Josh Patriot Guy and kissed him, I was all in. And when I saw the love and commitment between Josh and Noah, I melted. But I was a little unsure how Indy would fit into the mix. I loved the way the story unfolded. It was different from other stories I've read. These guys were simply amazing. The connections, the friendship, the love and the sex...I couldn't stop reading. I literally stayed up all night because I couldn't put it down. Now onto Josh's book.
This is not your conventional menage or triad, but it's also not cheating. I only WISH there was communication in most books like these guys have. They are open, they talk about things, and they build trust and friendship that is beautiful to see. And did I mention that this is SMOKING HOT!?!?! Phew!
In No Filter we are introduced to Indy, Noah and Josh and get to see how they get to know each other. Each of these men are beautiful but broken in some way. Indy on the run from demons from his past,, and a real danger that may attack st any time. Josh and Noah carrying the physical and emotional scars of military service. Together they share their bodies and their hearts.
The story is definitely steamy. Its a polyamorous relationship, and the men are trying to figure out their feelings and their roles... there is angst, drama, sexytimes and some sweet moments between them. These are complex characters with complex issues... the story is done beautifully. There is some dark subject matter covered in this story, it is not a mushy kind of love... it's dark, it's hard, its raw... and it's perfect.
I'm not really sure what I thought about this book. It was very different from what I expected it to be where Indy, Noah, and Josh would be in a loving relationship, but it turned out to just be between Indy and Noah with Josh on the sidelines for sex. I found it a little hard to relate to as a believer in monogamy, but it worked really well for them.
There's lots of hurt/comfort here which warmed my heart. Knowing that there was baggage for the characters, but not knowing what, kept me intrigued.
There's definitely kind of a cliffhanger here, but I don't mind 'having to' read book two-No Limits (No Shame #2), because it is Josh's story, and he is such a sweet character.
