Being a teenage boy, Nick had girls on the mind! Although he dated Amy Wilson, Nick set his sights on Amy's friend Sharon Collins who was involved with Nick's rival Matt Clark. After Sharon eventually left Matt for Nick, Matt sought revenge by beating the heck out of Nick and raping Sharon! Hoping that he would destroy Nick and Sharon for good, Matt told Nick that Sharon had given up her child for adoption, but Nick and Sharon remained intact. However, after Sharon confessed that Matt had raped her, Nick went to confront Matt and found him dead on his floor! Nick was convicted of murder and sentenced to fifteen years in jail, but was later exonerated after Amy Wilson came forward and admitted to shooting Matt after he had raped her.
Against his mother's wishes, Nick and Sharon married and had a son Noah. Although the two had a happy marriage, Nick came home drunk one night and slept with Sharon's friend Grace Turner thinking she was his wife! Grace assured Nick that his infidelity would remain a secret. A year later, Grace came to Sharon and Nick with the news that she found Sharon's long lost daughter. Though Nick had a hard time accepting Cassie at first, he soon welcomed her as his own.
Nick later went on to cheat on Sharon again with Grace, but this time his wife found out and took the kids and left! It wasn't until Cassie's adoptive mother wanted her back that Nick and Sharon reconciled to win custody of Cassie. Determined to make their marriage work, Nick took on an executive job at Newman and he and Sharon bought the Crimson Lights Coffeehouse, the place where they fell in love.
Nick challenged his father unlike anyone else after turning the great Victor Newman into the Feds for sabotaging Jabot's comeback campaign! Victor was sentenced to community service and Nick's relationship with his father was badly damaged. However, when Victor asked Nick to travel with him to his father's deathbed, Nick realized what his father had gone through and understood why he felt the need to fight so fiercely for everything he owned! Little by little, the two repaired their relationship and Victor made Nick CEO of Newman.
Throughout the years, Nick and Sharon's marriage survived numerous affairs, a miscarriage, family illnesses, kidnappings and near death experiences, but their love became truly tested with the death of their daughter Cassie. Now a teenager, Cassie became smitten with sixteen year old Daniel Romalotti. After lying to Nick and Sharon, Cassie went to a party and found a drunken Daniel passed out in the backseat of his car. Wanting to help him, Cassie took his keys and attempted to drive home. Her inexperience behind the wheel caused her to wreck and she later died as a result from the accident.
Nick was devastated and became withdrawn from Sharon and obsessed with making Daniel pay for Cassie's mistake. In the end, Nick came forward with evidence that proved that Daniel was innocent. With his marriage on the rocks, Nick began a passionate affair with Daniel's mother Phyllis Abbott. Soon Nick and Sharon separated, then found their marriage over after Phyllis became pregnant. When Phyllis expressed to Nick that she wasn't sure if the baby was his or Jack's, a paternity test was administered but Nick was the only one to view the results and then claimed that he was the father! Although Nick found himself scared to the bone when Sharon was kidnapped after getting drawn into Brad Carlton's past, she ended up okay and the two divorced.
Not wasting any time, wanting to avoid the six-month waiting period, Nick and Phyllis flew to Mexico and got married! Shortly after, the couple gave birth to a little girl named Summer. While Nick appears to have it all, little did he know, there was an impostor out there with Phyllis' face! His new bride and his daughter were kidnapped by Shelia Carter and Nick's had to fight with all he had to get them back!
Since then, Nick has survived the Clear Springs debacle and the coma of his sister, Victoria. He had a falling out with his father, Victor, and left Newman Enterprises, however. Deciding to start fresh on his own, he began a partnership with Jack Abbott and their wives, and started up a fashion magazine called Restless Style. The partnership deteriorated over time, and Nick bought out Jack's share. Recently, Nick made the decision to also go back to work at Newman as Victor has disappeared from town, while he is mourning the death of his wife.
Nick briefly went back to his ex, Sharon after they made love in the Abbott cabin, but then went back with Phyllis. He and Sharon conceived a baby, which Ashley believed was hers after Adam pulled a fast one. Nick and Sharon believed their child died. A crisis with Summer pulled Phyllis and Nick back together. Adam's deception was revealed and Nick and Sharon took custody of their daughter, Faith, from Ashley. Phyllis and Nick's marriage didn't survive because she got tired of him trying to look out for Sharon.
Nick joined his sisters in suing Victor and they won a big settlement. Nick repurchased Restless Style from Billy Abbott and ran it with Phyllis. Soon, the pair become romantically involved.
After Diane was killed, Nick began getting calls from an unknown number, playing back a recording of Nick threatening to kill Diane on her voicemail. He changed his number but still got the calls. He suspected Adam.
Nick found out that Phyllis and Avery Clark were sisters and tried to get them to spend time together. Eventually, Nick and Avery grew close and Phyllis cheated on Nick with Ronan. For a while, Nick bounced back and forth between Phyllis and Avery.
Nick sold Restless Style back to Billy and returned to Newman Enterprises, but after Nick beat up Deacon for getting Nikki drunk and marrying her, Adam was named CEO instead. Nick then quit when Victor was set to marry his ex-wife Sharon and went to work for Tucker instead. Nick returned to Newman after Victor and Sharon separated.
Nick and a pregnant Phyllis planned to get married, with Avery as maid of honor. When Phyllis lost the baby on their wedding day after arguing with Daisy, Nick wed her in a private ceremony the next day instead. Still, Nick left Phyllis when it was revealed she had run down Christine and Paul back in 1994, but he returned at Summer's insistence. But when Ronan admitted his love for Phyllis, Nick moved back to the ranch with Summer.
After Victor went missing, Sharon fired Nick from Newman. Victoria and Nick proved in court that Sharon was mentally unstable, and Nick was rehired. When Victor was declared dead, Phyllis consoled Nick, but when Phyllis' case about running down Christine and Paul was dismissed, Nick filed for divorce and turned to Avery.
Jack helped Adam take over Newman, and Nick was fired again. Unwilling to fight for the company anymore, Avery encouraged Nick to buy a bar and he opened The Underground, intending to run it with Noah. He hired war vet Dylan McAvoy, who ended up being Avery's long lost love. Still, Avery assured Nick he was the one for her. They got engaged, and she worked hard to convince Nick she was over Dylan.
Nick learned Summer and Kyle were moving toward intimacy and it was revealed Summer's paternity was in question. Sharon switched the new results, so that although Nick really was Summer's father, everyone believed Jack was. Phyllis, Jack, Nick and Summer were all devastated.
Nick and Avery found Phyllis unconscious at the bottom of a stairwell at an MS gala. She was in a coma and Nick convinced Avery and Summer to let Daniel take her to a facility in Atlanta.
Nick and Avery moved forward with their wedding plans while Sharon worked to get close to Nick, using Faith to play on his emotions. When Avery did not show up at her own wedding because she was helping Dylan, Nick broke up with her. Sharon admitted her feelings to Nick, but he told her he wasn't interested.
When Nick learned that Dylan was his long-lost brother they got into a fight, which pushed Nick closer to Sharon and they became romantic again. Then, Nick and Dylan teamed up to protect their mother Nikki when Ian Ward, the cult leader who fathered Dylan, came to town. Their mutual goal made them grow close.
Sharon confided in Nick that she was seeing visions of their dead daughter Cassie and got electro-convulsive therapy to stop the mental torment. The treatment wiped away Sharon's memory that Nick was Summer's true father, her role in Phyllis' injury, and that she had switched the paternity results. Nick told Sharon he was in love with her and moved back in.
Nick caught the Cassie lookalike and found out Victor had hired her to torture Sharon. Nick explained the truth to Sharon and confronted Victor. Victor told them Sharon was hiding a secret that would harm Nick, but Nick was adamant he loved Sharon no matter what.
