WHY I READ IT
I needed to see how KA redeemed Nick Sebring…and because it’s Kristen Ashley.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Nick Sebring has issues. Born feeling like an outsider in his own family, growing up under the shadow of a brother who could do anything, Nick isn’t that great of a guy. But when this culminates with Nick lashing out to hurt his brother through the woman he loves, Nick turns inward and makes some decisions about the man he intends to be.
And as he does this, he falls in love and truly learns the man that he’s grown to be.
When his love is murdered right before Nick’s eyes, Nick knows he has to avenge her. He knows how he’s going to avenge her. And he has no qualms using Olivia Shade to exact that vengeance.
Olivia Shade has grown up on the outside of her family too. Her problem is that they don’t want her outside. They want her all the way in, right under their thumbs. She pays the price for seeking escape and learns her lesson—she’ll never see a dawn where she wakes up free.
Then she meets Nick Sebring, and even as she fights it, the hope that died years ago starts to blossom. She can find love. She can have a man of her own. She can be happy. She can be free.
Olivia hopes while Nick schemes.
However, as Nick peels back the layers of all that is Olivia Shade, he finds something surprising. He understands its fragility. He falls in love with its beauty. He seeks to protect it.
But he forgets to protect his Livvie from one thing: Nick Sebring.
When I found out that Kristen was going to end the Unfinished Heroes series with Nick Sebring’s story, two thoughts went through my head. One – Was Nick, who spent much of the series being a heinous human being, redeemable, and two, did I even care? Even though we started to see a turnaround in Nick at the end of Raid, was it enough to warrant him a happy ending that we rooted for?
Believe me when I say, YES!
Here is what you need to know… Nick is out for revenge. To get it, he is going to go to whatever extremes necessary, even if it means seducing the daughter of the man who ordered his girlfriend murdered. Olivia is just going through the motions. Working a job she hates, while wanting nothing more to be free from her family. But when that family is firmly cemented in the underbelly of Denver’s crime world, and your father just might be the biggest scum bag on the planet, you’re stuck.
A not-so-chance encounter changes everything for both of them. Can Nick seek his revenge, while at the same time, keeping Olivia safe. Can Olivia let her guard down enough to allow Nick to get her free, and move towards the life she had hoped for, but never dared to dream of. I am giving you NOTHING! This is romantic suspense and you need to let it unfold completely unspoiled. Enjoy the ride the Nick and Olivia take you on. It’s unforgettable.
