Fierce. Scarred. Ginormous grump.
And I get to tell him he's a father...

Brilliant life decisions—falling for the bad guy.
Leo damn Regis. Hated scourge of Heart's Edge.
A wall with arms and legs. Hercules dipped in ink. Incandescent eyes.
The legend, the outcast, the boy I loved.

But the man they call “Nine” isn't the villain they think.
He saved my life and seared my heart once

Each book that is set in Hearts Edge just gets better and better. The chemistry between Leo and Clarissa were so hot. They were a couple when they were younger and due to some very unfortunate circumstances, they were torn apart. 8 years have passed since the last time they saw each other and things have changed. They are brought back together because of a tragedy and now they have to work together to get to the bottom and save her sister. This story was so good. It was fast paced with plenty of ...more

This is probably one of the longest books I have read in a while but I can honestly say it didn't take me long to get through it. In this book, we return to Heart's Edge, readers were originally exposed to the small town in No Good Doctor. It is not necessary to read that book first but it will lay a little more ground work from other character's perspective. Anyway, Clarissa has not been back to Heart's Edge for eight years but returns as she is looking for her missing sister. She does not retu ...more

Holy wow 😍

Words can’t describe just how good this book was! I kept seeing a high rating and I knew it wasn’t the first in the series but you don’t have to read them to read this book. I had no clue what to expect but it was so much more. This is one of my favorite reads of 2019. Check it out it’s also available on Kindle Unlimited! You won’t be sorry!

I tried to like this book, I really did. But I finally had to stop at 66%. I wasn’t a big fan of the female main character, I didn’t like that she talked about trying to protect her son but literally talked about super sensitive matters in front of her seven year old? I just didn’t “feel” this book and just couldn’t keep my attention on it. The writing is good, and I’ve read other books by this author but this one just didn’t click for me. I feel like we’re going and going but not getting anywhe ...more

Truth In The Legend
Nine became a legend in Heart’s Edge. But before he became Nine, he was just a soldier who fell in love with a girl who he wanted to be with forever. Tragedy tore them apart and Clarissa ran away to start over. Before she left, he promised that one day he would find her and they would be together again.

It’s been eight years since she ran. Now she’s back searching for her missing sister. She swore she’d never step foot in Heart’s Edge again, but saving her sister was enough of

This is a fantastically imaginative and clever story. It is well written throughout and intelligent. It is told from two POV, Clarissa the strong, independent heroine and her long lost love Leo, otherwise known as Nine or The Monster of Heart’s Edge. They have known each other since childhood and were heavily involved in their late teens, however this was never a normal love story. Kidnapped as a child and forced to under go unimaginable torture, cruelty and brainwashing to create a new breed of ...more
Leo and Clarissa were together until tragedy tore them apart. Clarissa left Heart's Ridge to start over but she has a big secret. Years later she is back in the small town looking for her sister and Nine (Leo) is the one that may have the answers. Leo was in love with Clarissa before he became a soldier named Nine. This time he's determined to keep Clarissa and he is also finding out he is a father. A crazy mixed up romance but a great read.

What the town really doesn't know is that Nine is protecting the town and everyone in it from a nasty company called Galentron. He watches from the shadows, keeping them safe even though they blame him for a tragic fire that happened 8 yrs ago. Secrets and misconceptions surround Leo (Nine) as he comes to terms about his old flame being back in town. Clarissa has come home ...more

WOW!!! This story is INTENSE and ADVENTUROUS & MYSTERIOUS & yes, all of those needed the all caps. ; )

Even though I've read (and LOVED) No Perfect Hero, I felt a little lost in the overall mystery plot at times, especially because a lot of their relationship is told via flashback, which is also not my favorite. Still, I HIGHLY enjoyed Leo & Rissa! And Zach, great kiddo! The intrigue was enough to keep me interested & eager to see how everything would play out. And Leo's sweetness, his heart...

4.6 stars

This author is exceptional. The amount of thought and details that she puts in to the timeline of her stories is mind boggling. Even though every story is a standalone they still carry threads of the previous story and glimpses of other characters.

This book his filled with suspense, mystery, longing, chemistry, and second chance love. It might be one of the top books by this author that I have read(which says a lot since I've read just about every book she has written--which is a lot).

Primal. Intense. High octane heat and suspense all wrapped up in a hearts on the line love story that won't be complete until the madness in Hearts Edge truly ends.

For the love of all things fictional! Clarissa and Nine's ( Aka Leo ) painfully dark past, combined with the present- a mind-blowing journey I wasn't sure I wanted to end!
Talk about keeping me on the edge of... sanity- the rollercoaster of emotions, eye-opening revelations, and magnetic chemistry swirled around in my mind. All my fa

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Wow! I was hooked from the very beginning and could not get enough. This suspenseful romance was astoundingly good! Murder, mystery, danger, darkness, suspense, kidnapping, passion, and intrigue that make it very interesting and compelling to keep you glued to the pages of this fascinating story. NO BROKEN BEAST reminds me of a modern day beauty and the beast with a twist and what a twist it has. The Beast or Monster or Nine (Leo Regis)

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we are back Hart's Edge for another part of the story. In this one we get Leo "Nine" Regis's story and we are introduced to Clarissa Bell. Remember we met nine in "No Good Doctor". Nobody in that story was saying anything about how they really knew nine. Now we learn who and why nine is the way he is. We learn about the woman he loved so much that he even went to jail for her to protect her

The Mystery, the Legend of Nine: Worth the Wait!
This entire series has been a gem. Throughout the series we've heard the whispers, felt the shudders, and practically tasted the fear of the man known as Nine. Now, finally, it's his turn... and Baby, he is worth the wait! This man truly is the stuff of legends. While the town whispers didn't exactly have him in the Greek god status, they should have. I guess that's to be expected when the titan spends so much time in the shadows that the townspeop

Leo...A hero with the heart of a lion

I really enjoy Nicole Snow’s books and have especially enjoyed the books with Hearts Ridge as the back drop. The intrigue, secrets and constant pulse beating at each story makes it easy to get tangled up in the story turning the pages as fast as you can read them. I especially enjoyed Nine (Leo) finally getting his story and a path back into the light. A broken soul keeping constant watch on the town he has been trying to save for years. I have two very speci

Nail biting anticipation and tension, spellbinding suspense, everlasting love
In the words of this book’s hero “Screwed up, scarred and beautiful” nicely sums up the roller coaster thrill ride that has been the life, love and destiny of Leo and Clarissa. No Broken Beast (Hearts Edge Book 3) by Nicole Snow is a true triumph in so many ways; justice, love, family.

I fell in love with Nicole Snow’s books after reading her Baby Fever Series. I binge read all her available books on KU and was never disappointed. When the opportunity to read an ARC of her latest book in the Heroes of Heart’s Edge Series - No Broken Beast presented itself I jumped at the chance. I find this particular series to be different from the other books she’s written. There is a suspense/danger element to them that enhances the romance aspect as well. In this book we get to know Nine a ...more

No matter how far away, you are always in my heart....

Nicole Snow slayed my heart with this story of Leo and Clarissa. Never have I felt my emotions well up so close to the surface. Leo/Nine is living in the woods in Heart's Edge just surviving. The only thing giving him a reason to hang on and hope, is that Clarissa will come back to him. They knew each other as children and fell in love as young adults. But their love and passion for each other was not to be. The tragedy caused by Galentron to
