REVIEW: Sebring by Kristen Ashley

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.

Sebring brings us the story of Nick. Nick was introduced in KNIGHT and he made quite an entrance. His cocky, spoiled, "I'm too sexy" attitude paled in comparison to the magnificent Knight Sebring. Now he has the opportunity to redeem himself. Nick has matured significantly and additionally, he has experienced great loss. At the start of Sebring, Nick is a man on a mission and the name of his game is revenge! With the support of his family and friends (all of our favorite characters from the series), Nick puts his plan into action.

The first time I read about Nick he was a total ass. His actions were horrible and it was really hard to like him. But in this book we see that Nick has grown into a matured person and has redeemed himself. Initially his sole purpose of getting close to Olivia is his revenge. But he is helpless against his unexpected attraction to Olivia. He couldn't help but fall for her. He saw that Olivia is living a half life and that there is a loving, caring and warm person beneath the persona she maintains. He wanted to bring her out and give her everything she had been missing. His patience and love and his never ending efforts helped develop their love and gave Olivia the love she was craving deep inside.

Olivia Shade is his target. Liv, the daughter of a gangster, is obligated to work for her father and the family business. She has been held captive by her family and left to live a hopeless life full of regret and pain. Her only escape is to indulge in her sexual desires by frequenting an underground sex club. She watches and enjoys the escape. When Nick inches his way into Liv's life, the attraction is instantaneous and the passion might have overloaded my kindle a time or to throughout the read!

Overall,Sebring was another winner for my "I LOVE KA" shelf! Surprisingly enough, Nick Sebring might just be one of my favorite heroes from the series (well second to KNIGHT)! I always enjoy reading Kristen Ashley. She has her own unique writing style and her heroes never fail to please! As long as she keeps writing, I will keep reading! ROCK ON!
