Unsettled by S.C. Ellington - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

Unsettled Blog Tour 

**Debut new adult author S.C. Ellington knocks it out of the park with this steamy contemporary romance!

After a horrific breakup with her longtime 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, D.C. 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.

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 his own 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.

This is one series I’m not going to miss.

At first, I was not really sure about reading this one, I wasn’t fond of the cover – I know! I’m judging it before reading. I was in for a big surprise when I started reading it, and liking it, and for a debut author, S.C. Ellington sure knows how to stir up emotions and build anticipation for the next book in the series.

Brooklyn Caldwell has a lot on her plate, and on her back. Never really gotten over a terrible breakup and an unthinkable aftermath, disillusioned engulfed her with regards to the opposite sex. Damon was everything to her, thinking he was the one until he burst her bubble.

To forget the pain, she sets off to Washington and room in with her friend Alex. Everything was just a normal busy day for her, work and her arrogant boss takes up most of her time, which was a welcome reprieve to get her minds off things. Until Logan Colton, a young CEO came into her life.

Logan was easily likable, he was down to earth, handsome and a real charmer. What I wished is for Logan to have his own POV in this story. I would love to hear his thoughts most of the time, especially with those times he prefers to keep secrets to himself. I want to know his past, all about his family, and of course, his current predicament (if he knows about it). He has a lot of baggage as well, and a huge guilt that had been eating him since then.

Can two broken people, heaved with baggage survive together?

I enjoyed reading the story, loved the two characters, even Alex got into me. I loved how the story went, the pacing was just perfect, it did not drag, it was not that fast-paced. When the ending finally came, it made me certainly look forward for the next book in the series. I hope by that time, Logan gets to have his own POV as well! :)
