No Limits: a bearded man looks to the left

No Limits by Ellie Marney

No Limits for Harris Derwent, a bad boy but he’s not so bad that he wants to be a drug mule, not even when a friend offers him a job could get him out of his father’s house. Amie is a nursing assistant in the local hospital. Her Punjabi family ties keep her in this small town although she had dreams of being a photographer. They meet in hospital, Amie caring for Harris after he was shot helping a friend. Sargent Blunt, Amie’s father, encourages Harris to accept a job as a runner for a drug ring so Blunt can take down some local drug dealers before his health forces him to retire.
