Title: Sebring
Series: Unfinished Hero #5
Author: 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 begins with Nick wanting to get his justice and revenge on the man who murdered someone he loved very much. He will do it any way he can, even if that means taking down someone like Olivia. She's different than he imagined, and she's been through a lot more than he could have ever imagined. Now, Nick must decide who he's trying to protect and avenge before it is all too late. 

And Livvie doesn't know which way is up when it comes to Nick. She knows it isn't a good idea to be with him, but she can't seem to stop herself. And the more she gets involved the worse it will be when her family finds out. She must decide what is more important to her, taking a chance on love, or toeing the line like a good girl... 

Sebring was not at all what I was expecting it to be. Considering this book is labeled as an "erotica" I was actually expecting a little bit more sex and a lot more detailed, but that wasn't really how it went. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the book, I did, and I was honestly glad that the sex didn't take away from the story, I enjoyed that, but it just wasn't what I was expecting. 

This story was also very interesting. I enjoyed Nick and Livvie together. They made a really great couple and my favorite thing about the whole book was them together! I really enjoyed that. I just sort of felt like more would have happened between them and between the people Nick was trying to take down. When I got to the end of the story it all seemed rather anti-climatic. That was kind of a disappointment. But other than that it was a really enjoyable read and I did like it.
