Blog Tour Review 

 SC Ellington
Release Date: December 10, 2013
Genre: Adult Romance

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.

Add to Goodreads
“I didn’t usually second-guess sharing things with her, but for some reason I just didn’t feel like rehashing my sordid past. I was determined to maintain a brave face for everyone else’s benefit, no matter what the cost. I never wanted to portray myself as the weak woman who needed a man. But for all my boastful pontificating, I still suffered with the reality of our breakup silently. Alex was my nearest and dearest friend, but the reality was that she had never experienced the heartache I went through.”- Brooklyn Caldwell

What a debut from S.C. Ellington.  I was anxious to read this book, the cover looked intriguing and the story pulled me in. The writing was engaging and I often found myself smirking at the banter between the couple.

Brooklyn Caldwell is trying to pick the pieces up of her shattered heart after a devastating breakup 2 years ago.  The walls she has built are high but could a chance encounter with Logan Colton be what she’s needed all along.

Logan Colton, is a super sexy, down to earth millionaire.  He is intrigued by Brooklyn and has made it his mission to get to know her.

I LOVED Logan, no doubt about it hands down!  Yes, he travels in different circles than Brooklyn but he did not once come off as a rich snob.  I thought  his feelings for her were genuine and that he took the time to listen to her and her feelings.  They were a likeable couple and I couldn’t wait for them to get together. 

But sometimes I felt like Brooklyn got in her own way.  The resurfacing of the man who broke her heart didn’t seem to help matters any.  I didn’t enjoy any of the interaction between Brooklyn and Daemon.  I thought he was an arrogant ass and I am unlikely to change my opinion of him even as the trilogy continues.

Yes, trilogy, which had me knowing going in that this would probably not end all hearts and flowers.  Cliffhangers are NOT my thing.  I felt like the ending was too predictable though and it made me mad.  Mad at Brooklyn for running….again.

I will patiently (or not so patiently) await the 2nd book in this series as I am hopefully that Logan and Brooklyn will one day get the HEA.  So if you like a good story and don’t mind cliffhangers (oh heck even if you do) go grab this book!
