Although Nick Newman grew up starving for the affection of his father Victor, he was very close to his stepfather Jack. At ten years old, Nick went away to spend six years in a Switzerland boarding school and wasn't seen again until his sixteen birthday.
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 is now running it with Phyllis. The pair have once again become romantically involved.

Sharon arrives at the tackhouse to get Nick. They talk about how it never gets easier to remember the day Cassie died. Sharon asks if he's okay. Nick says he's been thinking a lot about a decision he made that may have come back to haunt him. She wonders why he's not confiding in Avery. Nick says he's not talking to anyone about this right now. Sharon says if he wants to unburden himself, she's there.
At Cassie's grave, Nick and Sharon recall how Cassie was into poetry and anything romantic. They read one of her favorite poems. Sharon goes to the chapel and Nick talks to Cassie. He says if Summer turns out to be Jack's, he'll have lost a second daughter. He doesn't know if he's strong enough to face that. Sharon returns in time to hear Nick say he needs to get the paternity test to the lab and find out if Summer's his daughter.
At the tackhouse, Nick hides the DNA paper when Sharon arrives. They talk about how Cassie's death changed everything for both of them. Sharon wonders if there is something else going on with him.
