Unsettled series by SC Ellington blog tour

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

Everything was falling into place. Even amongst all the chaos of Washington D.C., Brooklyn and Logan found each other.

Brooklyn never expected Logan...and as it always seems to happen with her...things fell apart. She has been through this before...was she strong enough to do it again?

On the outside, Logan was the epitome of wealth and confidence. Many knew his name but few knew his secrets. He never expected Brooklyn...but now she's walked away. He knew what they shared mattered to her...and she...she mattered to him more.

I am going to break this up into two reviews since there are two books and I read them back to back.

Unsettled review:
This was a great book about a billionaire man with demons he is fighting and a woman with a shattered hard who thinks she can't ever love again. These two meet on accident and there is immediate chemistry. I'm not going to give you spoilers or reiterate the synopsis either. I will tell you, its gooooooood.

I really liked the flow, style and plot line of the book. I love that there is an undercurrent of external drama outside of their relationship with her ex, work, and his wealthy lifestyle. However they mesh perfectly. They both try to still fight their demons and stay together , but sometimes this demons are just too strong. SC Ellington did a great job with this. The only thing that really upset me is when she let her demons win and didn't give him a chance to explain. I wish Damon would have gotten more than what she gave him, he deserved more than that. But I think Alex, her best friend, is one of the reasons I really loved this book. Their relationship is awesome.

Surrounded review:
So this book picks up right where Unsettled left us. And here I am, on the edge of my chair wondering what the heck is going on. Will she find out the truth? Will he? Will whats her nuts be honest? What's going on? Can he help her heal and can she help him? So many unanswered questions! Now, again, you know we don't do spoilers here, so I will say this... I loved how SC let the story unfold. I loved the growth we see in Logan through this series. I love the healing we see in Brooklyn. I'm still sitting over here wishing more karma came around to Damon, but... I'm still happy with how things worked out.

SC Ellington did a great job with this sequel. She didn't leave us hanging with any unanswered questions and ultimately you will be happy with how the series ends. 

I give the series 4 hearts
