Unsettled - Review


Unsettled by S.C. Ellington


After a horrific breakup with her long time boyfriend, Brooklyn Caldwell is completely disenchanted with the notion of mingling with the opposite sex. Damon Williams had been everything she thought she wanted…until he wasn’t.

In an attempt to escape her heartbreaking past, Brooklyn seeks refuge in bustling Washington DC where she folds into the fast paced society unnoticed…until she meets a young entrepreneur, Logan Colton.

Brooklyn is surprised to find that while she has been successful in keeping the opposite sex at bay, somehow she is defenseless against Logan’s confidence and charm—and it doesn’t hurt that he is absurdly beautiful. While thrilled with Logan’s candor, Brooklyn hesitates, as she can’t seem to move past the heartache that she suffered at the hands of Damon.

As much as Logan didn’t plan on pursuing her, he is drawn to Brooklyn’s muted beauty and her witty persona. For all his success, Logan is ensnared in the coveted world of unequivocal wealth and power, but behind closed doors is taunted by demons and an undeniable need to atone for a monumental mistake.

As the two embark on a tumultuous obstacle course saturated with unknown twists and turns, Brooklyn is left to question whether she can endure the journey ahead.


"I couldn’t breathe. I saw her below me. I couldn’t make out her face, but I knew she was someone close. Something was wrapped around her ankles, I thrust myself deeper into the darkness. The salty red water was all around me. Claps of thunder rang in my ears, but I plunged further into the bottomless abyss. Intense fear gripped my heart valve so tightly I thought it would burst, but I knew she needed me."

My Review

The is a story of healing and trying to move beyond all the hurt and anger from the past to open yourself up for new adventures and love.

Brooklyn works at Copple Marketing under Trent…. He is an awful boss and she should have quit that job from the moment she started with the way Trent treats her. While working there she runs into Logan Colton a rich CEO. She is very cautious of Logan because she isn’t ready to open herself up again to any type of relationship and she definitely isn’t a friend with benefits kind of girl.

“Can’t you see that you’re letting your past hurt screw up your other chances for happiness?”
“Brooklyn, you are the only one who holds the key to your happiness. At some point you’re going to have to uncoil the rope around your heart and press forward.”

I adored Logan… he is a swoon worthy boyfriend! He wasn’t completely open about himself at first but over time he slowly began to tell her things. He always had the right things to say and whenever Brooklyn would want to “run” from him, he could always reel her back in. Of course, I am a sucker for guys that can talk and he had some pretty good lines in this story.

“You implied that I’m somehow unattainable – but I’m right where I want to be at this moment.”
“Memories will always flood through your mind, but by the end of today, the only thing I want to do is kiss your scars away.”

Of course though, all good things must somehow come to an end. I really thought the breaking point would be with Brooklyn’s ex Damon. I was wrong though….. it has nothing to do with her past. Get ready for that cliffhanger because you will definitely experience one!

It was a good sexy read! A little slow to start but ends with a bang!
