I hate that this series is ending...man Kristen took me on a ride with this. I loved all her characters from Knight and Anya to Sylvia and the others. Each one got their nightmares and battles they had to fight through and it made it even better because their situations were ones you could relate too.The Unfinished Heroes Series has made me scream, laugh, angry and burst out in fits but none of them have made me more frustrated or full of hate like Nick. I mean he is a true asshole but I got to understand him better in Sebring and he became human in my eyes. He’s dealt with a lot of shit and came out on top, he was slowly drowning but pulling himself back together and meeting Olivia helped more than he could have thought possible.
Olivia has been through hurt too and suffered at the hands of her father. The family she was born into was not one she would have picked but then whose is. Her father and sister are just alike and Olivia is the black sheep of the family. When she meets Nick in a sex club the attraction is sizzling and she has no idea how much her life is about to change. She’ll have to learn to fight for the life she really wants or suffer in silence in the one she’s already got.
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.
