Blog Tour: Usettled by S.C Ellington


Title: Unsettled
Series: Unsettled #1
Author: S.C Ellington
Release Date: December 10th, 2013
Rating: 3.5 stars
Cliffhanger: Yes

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.

“Logan Colton wanted me to call him? Why? I wondered ….For the life of me I couldn’t understand the cruel joke that the universe was playing on me. I wasn’t the pretty or popular girl that got asked out by legions of boys to prom. I still remembered the awkward years of my youth—the braces, obscene hairdos and neon tights. Nope, I wasn’t Paula Patton beautiful. I wasn’t on any millionaire’s long list of friends—nor did I want to be. Logan would just have to settle for one of the women who would be more than willing to sink her teeth into his obscene fortune, guaranteeing that she wouldn’t have to lift a finger for the rest of her natural life.”- Brooklyn Caldwell


Unsettled is a story with classical in contemporary romances twist, that I certainly enjoyed.

The main heroine, Brooklyn is still nursing her broken heart from really bad break up. She doesn’t do very well in relationships, because of Demon, her ex-boyfriend that scarred her for life. Now, despite the fact that three long years has passed, Brooklyn seems to be not able to let go of her past. So when she meets, young, sexy and completely irresistible Logan Colton, successful entrepreneur, her walls start to crack.

It took me a little bit time to get into this story and start enjoying it fully. The beginning was not very entertaining, and I found myslef being slightly bored. But somewhere in the middle the story started to be highly engaging and I finished it with a big smile on my face.

Once the story took off, I couldn’t stop laughing and rooting for characters. I was able to connect with the heroine and like her sassy personality. The only thing that made me grit my teeth was Brooklyn’s insecurity, that was very frustrating to read about. There were quite few times, when I wanted to shake her and tell her to get some lady balls and stop whining.

Despite this flaw, Brooklyn seemed to be very real and relatable character. She was not naïve damsel in distress, which made me like her more and thanks to that, I was able to forgive her stupid (from time to time) logic. Where she was feisty, open and extremely sharp, Logan’s personality was secure and quiet, yet immensely intense. He was her exact opposite, so seeing them together was definite fun.

Demon, Brooklyn ex-boyfriend was irritating addition, but he fortunately didn’t mess up the book for me.

While the plot seems to be classic ‘normal girl meets millionaire CEO’, Unsettled hides few unexpected twists and turns, that absolutely make reading S.C Ellington debut novel worthwhile. I can’t say that I did regret diving into Brooklyn’s modern romantic tale of unexpected love and consequences.

To sum it up, every fan of sexy, intense millionaires should pick Unsettled up. Sexy, well written and enjoyable, Ellington delivered nice romance novel that only opens a trilogy, that have fine prospects for the future.

S.C. Ellington is an up and coming author who enjoys expressing her creativity through frequently writing adult, contemporary romance novels that readers can relate to, but more importantly, enjoy.

Aside from writing, Ellington enjoys curling up with her e-reader and absorbing herself in novels loaded with emotion, desire, and passion. She also likes to spend sunny, wistful afternoons, in her hammock thinking up new ideas for great stories.
