Should "no one" be followed by the singular or plural form of "like"? I know that "no one" is generally followed by singular verbs, but would being preceded by a plural noun make this an exception?

The finite verb form depends on the subject and the numerus of an object is irrelevant.
- He likes the book Hunger Games - He likes the books by Suzanne Collins.
Even if the object is in front position it has no influence on the finite verb form.
