Book Review – Unsettled: A Novel 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.



5 Amazing Stars

Damon broke her heart and Brooklyn Cadwell fled. Still Years later, Brooklyn’s life is still in an unsettled state. She has a job that she hates and is going nowhere. She lives with her best friend Alex and Alex’s long term boyfriend Jay. She hasn’t really dated or tried to move forward until she encounters Logan Colton a rich CEO and even though she fights it he might be the guy to help her heal and move on. But will she trust him enough to give him a chance? Is she ready to heal and give love another chance?
I read this book cover to cover in one sitting. I loved and was quickly drawn to the characters.  Brooklyn has been through the ringer with Damon who I just wanted to smack repeatively. I truly love what Logan has to go through to get Brooklyn attention. I just love him  because he isn’t your normal rich CEO and Brooklyn is his calm in his own unsettled world.  I love Alex and Jay and their relationship with each other and their friendship with Brooklyn. There are many twists and turns I didn’t see coming and loved every minute of it. This book ended just like the title; everything is a state of chaos over a twist you don’t see coming and leaves the lives of the characters unsettled.
I can’t wait for the second book because I need to know what happens next. I am addicted. Everything was left so unsettled that there is so much more story left to be told and I need to know like I need to breathe. It’s that great!
