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 defenceless against Logan’s confidence and charm—and it doesn’t hurt that he is absurdly
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 loved these books! Since I got to read and review both I am going to combine my review.
In Unsettled we meet Brooklyn, who has moved across country to help heal a broken heart after having it shattered by her ex Damon, 3 years later she is still single and heartbroken and wont let anyone in – this irked me a little as I couldn’t believe she still moped about it after so long… Brooklyn was, despite being sassy, funny and relate-able still very insecure throughout the book – to the point sometimes I wanted to shake here and say get over it!
Then there is Logan an young multimillionaire CEO. He is persistent to get Brooklyn to go on a date with him and when he sends his driver to pick her up after work one night she has a choice – go meet him or go home.
I am glad she chose to go and meet him (as without doing so there would be no story doh lol) and the relationship that blossoms between then via calls and emails is sweet.
Whilst developing a relationship with Logan her ex Damon comes back into the picture and she has to finally put him to bed – not in that way once and for all.
Then book one hits your a cliffhanger!!
When you start Surrounded you are starting from Logan’s point of view with regards to how Unsettled ended. This book is more about Logan and his past and his own demons to fight. Logan will do anything to win back Brooklyn, but she is stubborn. I just want to bang her head and say don’t be silly!! 🙂
Both books were great, I loved the characters and I love the story. If you love a good wee romance story then you need to read these for sure.
5 stars for the series.
