Publisher's Summary

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 about 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.

    "A HOT LISTEN THAT LEADS TO A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY"

    One of the things that you know a Kristen Ashley book will give you is a loveable, sexy Alpha Hero who, once he's made you his, he'd lie, cheat, steal, kill or die to protect you. They have clipped speech, are hard, possessive, jealous, demanding lovers, often dirty talkers, cryptic, intelligent, loving, protective, very sexual and, as Knight declared to his woman in book 1 "wars fought over a face like this, a man would work himself into the ground for it, go down to his knees to beg to keep it, endure torture to protect it, take a bullet for it, poison his brother to possess a face like this"..... yup, they're not afraid to show that they love deeply, are vulnerable to the woman that holds his heart..... and the family he makes with her.

    The second thing is a fantastic storyline, filled with suspense, angst, drama, bad guys, quick witted banter and dialogue, twists and a plot that includes well loved characters from the previous books. Finally, the third thing that KA gives you are mesmerizing romances that are passionate, filled with heartfelt declarations, unpredictable, very hot and they'll curl your toes, make your blood pressure rise, frustrate you, charm you, have you eager to get back to them and finally leave you sighing in pleasure, and on a book high, because you know you've just listened to something awesome.

    Nick and Olivia's story was all this and much more.... they came from different worlds but somehow found each other.... but it wasn't going to be easy, it wasn't going to be without it's bloodshed and it wasn't going to go smoothly. Nick has wanted revenge for the death of his girlfriend for four years and his ticket to get it is Olivia - she's quiet, vulnerable yet strong and is the disillusioned Boss' Daughter.... but what he wasn't prepared for was for Olivia to stir up and ignite intense, possessive and protective feelings. Slowly she comes out of her shell, trusts and puts her faith in Nick but he has hidden his agenda and secrets from her and, when she eventually learns the truth (not, of course, from him) the sht hits the fan, hearts are broken and dreams crumble. The roller coaster ride does stop at some precarious situations but it left me with that 'feel good' feeling, wishing there was more but very grateful that I found this talented and gifted Author.

    Dual POV's (with multiple POV's at the end) and a really good narrator who delivered very convincing male voices and injected the perfect emotional dialogue into well described and easily visualized scenes. Could be stand alone but it does refer to characters from the past 5 books and gives an Epilogue which wraps up all the characters HEA's from the entire series beautifully.

    Worth a credit? Yes, not only is KA an auto download Author for me but her books are also worthy pre-orders too. Each and every one of her books in the Unfinished Hero series, IMO, are creditworthy and this story has made me want to listen to this wonderful series all over again.

    "A Fantastic Brilliant Close to a Touch & Go Series"


    This portion of Kristen Ashley's The Unfinished Heros series is the final chapter. While each book can stand alone, if you are going to read the entire series – you may want to stop reading this review. It contains spoilers, I don't purposely do this but you have been warned!

    Olivia Shade is the daughter of a crime family powerful. Nick wants retribution from them for making him watch them murder his woman.

    Olivia feels that she is nothing more than a pawn to be used however her father seems fit, to advance to business and career.

    Nick and Olivia cross paths. Nick is never going to love again, after the murder of his girlfriend. Olivia does not even know what love means. However there is an electric spark that flows through Nick & Olivia every time they touch.

    I really enjoyed this book and it seemed to go a lot deeper as far as the plot, etc. I do not know if that is because it is the final book in the series or what, but I had difficulty putting it down.

    SPOILER!! The very end chapters of this book, KA brings us up to speed on all of the previous characters and how their lives look now. I really enjoyed that, so very much.

    Stella Bloom is new to me (in this series.) I would mark her performance as above average because of her ability to handle such a large class cast of characters. There are male & female and an occasional kid. If I see something that looks interesting to me in the future and she is the narrator, I will grab it in a heartbeat.

    Notes/warnings: graphic descriptions of sex, violence & strong language, also the discussion of trafficking anything from drugs to girls to women – this may upset some readers.

    This is definitely for the older than 18 years crowd. I like my books racy & spicy and this series was a little bit outside my comfort zone. If you don't mind the things that I warned about, it is a great series. I had a chance to read it from beginning to end and that's how I would recommend anyone else listen. I also prefer my books a little bit deeper.

    Ratings: The first book I enjoyed, the second a bit less, the third about average but Sebring knocked my socks off, I felt great after having read it especially as the characters from previous books came into play.

    Stars: Four stars overall

    "So Hard to Say Goodbye"

    I fell a little in love with each and every one of the hardcore men of the Unfinished Heroes Series. I set aside a small place in my reader's heart for Mr. Nick Sebring when his story became available and I wasn't disappointed.
    Of course one of the darkest of the bunch would be paired with the princess of an empire he was employed to bring down because that's just how Kristen Ashley rolls.
    The heat between Nick and Olivia was off the charts and made it easy to believe that they would create rules that would allow them to continue experiencing each other without getting scorched. It was a good try anyway.
    I rooted for them even though I knew they would each have to battle through their personal hells to want something lasting.
    My heart went out to Olivia who seemed to be the proverbial princess held captive by her family, but it was also nice to see that she had some claws of her own.
    As secrets were revealed and lies exposed there was one choice for these two to make. Give up their former lives or give up each other. I was very happy with the choice they made, but of course I want more. On to her next series.

    Feeding five horses in the morning, I'm listening to my audiobooks. On the tractor dispensing you know what I'm listening to my audio book. Daily brushing of each horse the audio book is running. Only time I shut it off is when I'm walking with the dogs or horses in the woods.

    Fan of Ashley in the past books were the same this one didn't follow the rule. So that was great. Don't get me wrong I love the past books. This one made me smile and laugh and that is the big plus.

    "Hated Finishing the Series"

    These unfinished heroes are perfect book boyfriends - under the talented narration, the characters come to life in all their alpha goodness. The story grabs you and before you know it, you're done listening and wishing there was more.

    Story
    "sssss..sizzling!"

    So, I was looking at an 8 hour plane ride - movies or a book? I chose Sebring and it kept me entertained for the duration.

    Since I am not into spoilers and plenty of reviews are available, you might want to know if I would choose it again and the answer is definitely yes. This series is good. Kristen Ashley brings entertaining books to the market and Stella Bloom is an excellent performer.
    This was one more of the slightly twisted guys, scarred from before, into the life of another beauty whose love has been wasted on losers. But, around those identities, she wove a sexually charged storyline that had me squirming in my seat more than once.

    Please understand that this is a very sexual book. I would have liked a little more story, thus the 4 not 5 rating, but, hey, I was totally entertained and happy to be listening to Sebring.

    As you read this,

    "OMG"

    OMG this book was awesome!! I knew it was going to be great because I love every last book in this series. At first I disliked Nick so much in the first 4 books, but in this book I fell in love with him. OMG Olivia had my heart tearing apart but I am so glad she found her HAPPY!! This book is a must read and definitely worth the credit, but you really need to read the first 4 books to understand how far Nick has overcome!! LOVE IT!! Kristen Ashley is my favorite author.

    Story
    "Broken princess."

    The pathos surrounding the female lead was heart wrenching. This coupled with the intense and continuous suspense of each clandestine meeting, was enough to keep my attention riveted as the story unfold.

    The soft gentle landing towards the close of the story was most welcomed. The reader/listener was treated to little synapses of how each couple in the series was progressing in their life and relationships. It was like stopping by to see old friends and prolonging the pleasure with a little get together.

    The narrator was superb. Excellent storytelling by both author and narrator. The juxtaposition of the various types of love was expertly portrayed by the author to bring the themes of the story home.

    A truly delightful listen!
