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

S.C. Ellington's, "Unsettled" is a story wonderful story of two very different individuals, Brooklyn and Logan, who find themselves drawn to one another, in love and there to be just the strength that the other one needs. However, their past and their issues become obstacles interfering with their relationship.
This story is written beautifully. I felt genuinely and emotionally invested in each of the characters and wanted nothing but for them but to be happy, which is what both of them deserve. Ms. Ellington character and scene descriptions put you right into book as if you are a fly on wall watching this story unfold. And the story has one hell of a cliffhanger that leaves you at the edge of your seat wanting more!!!!!
This is definitely a recommended read. I am sooooo looking forward to book 2. (3/10/2014)
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.
SC Ellington's, "Surrounded" is an amazing sequel to its predecessor "Unsettled", which ended with such a cliffhanger. I was so excited to see what would come of the connection that Brooklyn and Logan have. Although the road to a HEA was a rocky one, this series, this book left me with an ear to ear grin on my face.
I found this book, just like "Unsettled" to be brilliantly written, from the descriptions of the setting to the genuine characteristics of the characters. I felt they were extremely realistic and felt somewhat of a connection with them. ITS DEFINITELY A FIVE STAR READ AND HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE READ THIS YEAR.... IT COULD BE ONE OF THE BEST YOU READ TOO ;-)
