Overview

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.

Goodreads. - Joy Whiteside
This was an enjoyable read that once I started there was no stopping. It moved along at the perfect pace from beginning to end, never slowing down, has characters that you will fall in love with and a story that will keep you entertained from the moment that you start reading. This has to be on your must read list.

This books picks up right where things left of in Unsettled, and I for one was dying to know what would happen. The pacing makes it easy to hook right into this book.The pacing of this book worked really well with the events that happen in Surrounded. This book is definitely a passionate one, and I could feel the passion between Logan and Brooklyn throughout the entire book. Even when things weren't so peachy between them, I could feel that tangible passion between them.
Amazon - Jennifer Lubow
This story back tracks a little bit of Unsettled..Giving the reader some of Logan's POV. Which is awesome!!!

But don't worry..you still get to see what our Brooklyn is thinking.

Will these two find their way back to each other? Well I can't tell you that. But what I will tell you is that I loved it and wanted to read more, more, more!! I couldn't put it down!

Great book! I just LOVED IT!!!! I enjoyed it even more than Unsettled! I loved every page! I feel in love with Brooklyn and Logan even more than I had in Unsettled. I totally recommend reading both of these books.

I love reading Surrounded. Surrounded in book two in the Unsettled series. It's not a standalone and you must read Book one Unsettled first. Unsettled left us with a big cliffhanger. I remembered the cliffhanger but couldn't remember the name of the book. So, I'm so glad I picked this one up to read because I was dieing to know what would happen with Logan and Brooklyn. In the beginning we get a little recap of the end of Unsettled but this time it's through Logan's POV. It's told in the dual POV of Logan and Brooklyn. I love books told in dual POVs. In Unsettled, Brooklyn overheard some things being said int he bathroom. She reacts by running from Logan. Things get worse for her on the job front and she finds herself going home. We get to meet Brooklyn's family. I absolutely loved her parents and sister. We also get more of Jay and Alex. Logan's not ready to give up on Brooklyn. They both have a lot of things to work through in this book. Like most relationships, there's is not prefect without putting some work into it. There's no cliffhanger. It's a great end for Logan and Brooklyn's story.

This book is the continuation of book one; yes, did pick up where it left off in the first book, however, it continued to do so until it caught us up on Logans' thoughts and perception from the first book since the first book delt mainly with Brooklyns' thoughts and perception not Logans'. Unfortunately for this author moving forward ment moving forward at a snails pace, and barely catching up. Needless to say : the ending was lackluster and left me unfulfilled as a reader.

“It means everything to me, Logan. Thank you for not giving up on me.” ~Brooklyn * “When you feel like running, don’t be afraid to grab my hand because I’ll run with you.” ~Logan I really, truly enjoyed the way Brooklyn and Logan's love story evolved. These two young professionals had experienced individual tragedies that no one would recover from easily. Their chance meeting put them on a path together toward romantic happiness and incidentally better career fulfillment. The bumps along the way were very realistic and not overly drawn out. Surrounded picked up right after the cliffhanger moment it ended on in book 1, Unsettled. Minor spoilers alert!!! Writing style: Dual POVs Cover: I like it. The significance of the cover model being casually dressed as opposed to dressed in a business suit is mentioned in the story. So I like that there is a tie-in just as there was with book one’s cover (the female cover model version). Favorite elements: The chapter titles and graphics were well chosen and designed yet again. Alex was truly the BEST best friend any girl could ever want. She really had Brooklyn’s back and her best interest at heart even when Brooklyn didn’t. Brooklyn’s big sister, Danielle’s ‘17-point insight into Brooklyn list’ was so much excellence, completely high-five worthy! I loved the role that Starburst played – as the nickname that Logan gave to Brooklyn and as a gift to win her over at their reunion. The scene with Brooklyn’s dad teasing Logan was so funny and too good! The flirty discussion of the virtues of the moniker ‘little L’ versus ‘big L’ during Logan and Brooklyn’s post-birthday scene was super cute and sexy. The emotionally cleansing scene between Logan and his father was a fantastic male bonding moment. And I freaking loved the Mezick pond scene 2.0! The romance in that moment was highly on point. I’m a sucker for an epilogue, and I loved how Jay surprised Alex, Brooklyn’s best friend. A top favorite scene: “I need to know for sure that you want this. That you want me. I need to know that you trust me enough with your heart that you won’t second guess me…us.” She watched me, unmoving. “I need to know that before we go further, because I’m in love with you.” I laced my fingers through her hair. “There can’t be any second guessing or regret. I have too much of that in my life as it is.” She leaned in bringing her face closer to mine. “I want this Logan. I missed you. I missed us. I want us.” The way she looked at me pierced my heart. ♥ Weakest element: Again, the editing needed more polishing. The same type of typos and errors from Unsettled, the author's debut novel, were prevalent in this wonderfully well told sequel. I sincerely hope that she chooses a new proofreader who can do a more thorough job in the future. She certainly knows how to deliver a great story. I look forward to reading her future novels if a synopsis of hers piques my interest.

When we left off in the first book, Unsettled, Brooklyn had a big decision to make and it seemed like things were starting over from her previous relationship.  Was it going to get better or worse and could she handle being trampled over yet again? Logan was trapped in a world that consisted of torment and sadness. Although he tried to make life better for everyone else, he never tried to make it better for himself until Brooklyn, She was his center and his home. She grounded him and made him feel in ways he never imagined was possible.   When I left the first book, I was a little twisted because I knew maybe just maybe what I assumed would happen but then I was wrong. It turned out into the whirlwind of finding something in another person's life that you yearned for. I saw this little boy in Logan and all of the dreams that he wanted never happened because of things that happened in the past.  I felt so bad for him. My heart broke for what could have been had things gone a little different. Would he have ended up with Brooklyn, probably but would the circumstance been better?   I loved the fight that both Brooklyn and Logan had to put up for each other. Both of them wanted the other to fight the past and get through it and once they knew it was them against the world, they were unstoppable.

I had the pleasure of reading both Book One (Unsettled) and Book Two (Surrounded) from SC Ellington's Unsettled Series in the past couple weeks and I was blown away. I cannot wait for book #3 because both books left me wanting for more. I love how independent Brooklyn is in these books which is not always typical for a romance novel. She is feisty and full of spirit. She has baggage from her past relationships that cause her to be her own worst enemy. Same being said for Logan....he carries baggage from his past due to a family tragedy. They both find something in each other that they didn't have with their past relationships. I have to say I love how they first meet (no spoilers here) - but it made me laugh out loud (my husband thought I lost it). The end of Unsettled made me tear straight away into Surrounded. Surrounded didn't end on a cliffhanger so I am curious to see how SC Ellington moves forward with the next book. I can tell you this - I am signed up on her Facebook page and email newsletter anxiously waiting for any news, teasers, release dates etc for book three! I would highly recommend these books to read - 5 out of 5 stars and two enthusiastic thumbs up! - S Muennix

Actual Rating: 4 1/2 Fantastic Stars! This books picks up right where things left of in Unsettled, and I for one was dying to know what would happen. The pacing makes it easy to hook right into this book.The pacing of this book worked really well with the events that happen in Surrounded. This book is definitely a passionate one, and I could feel the passion between Logan and Brooklyn throughout the entire book. Even when things weren’t so peachy between them, I could feel that tangible passion between them. They have a true chemistry which was so easy to feel. Both of these characters push the other one to move on from what they both have in their past, and to see the good in what they have together. That pushing makes them both better, and just shows how far they were both willing to go for one another. That pushing showed a lot about these characters. I loved Logan’s character, and especially since this book showed his perspective. The tenacity that Logan has to prove his feelings to Brooklyn just made me adore his character even more. He doesn’t give up, and that’s kind of important. He’s also sweet as hell, so that helps. Brooklyn goes through a lot of changes on her Journey through the events in Unsettled and Surrounded. She overcomes so much, and finds some true strength within her. She’s a strong female lead, and even when she was at her weakest, she had one hell of a backbone. One of my favorite things about this book was reading how Brooklyn discovers who she truly wants to be. Her “finding herself” was so authentically written, and I adored getting to read how she was finally able to find what she wanted in all aspects of her life. I also adored the secondary characters in this book, and the other relationships that were highlighted in Surrounded. Brooklyn’s friendship with Alex was wonderful to read and it stood out in such a perfect way. Reading Logan’s complicate relationship with his family was also very intriguing, and added another great layer to this book. The title of this book is Surrounded, and boy does that fit. The theme of being surrounded and being open to the feelings around you is beautifully weaved through this book. Logan and Brooklyn are surrounded by their feelings for one another, and that comes across in such a magnificent way. Overall, this was just a truly fantastic book. It ties up all of the things that began in Unsettled, and I loved getting to experience another book with Brooklyn and Logan.

Thanks to the author, I was allowed to read an ARC of this book for an honest review. This book is a continuation of the story that started in Unsettled. Neither Brooklyn nor Logan were looking for a serious relationship much less to fall in love. That is, however, what they found in each other. Both had personal issues of their own that they had to work through and Brooklyn's issues of lack of trust almost ended the couple for good. Fortunately Logan wasn't willing to give up and was willing to go to whatever extremes that it took to get her back. This is a good series that I enjoyed. Brooklyn's lack of trust to the point of not being willing to talk about things with Logan wore on me a little bit. Outside of that point, the book was really good. Four stars!

I was so glad to have this to dive right into after Unsettled because it would have eaten me up to not know immediately what would happen with both Brooklyn and Logan! One of the main things I liked about this book is that we get an inside look at Logan as this is written in dual perspectives. We get to know him more and a lot more about his demons and past too. Logan will do anything to get Brooklyn back. He has fallen hard and has to work through his own past to get to where he needs to be for Brooklyn.  Brooklyn however is a harder nut to crack and I get that she has had a difficult time with one break up but to be honest her reluctance to trust Logan again and open up to him was a tad difficult for me!  Although this book does continue Brooklyn’s story it is very much focused on Logan and his past. There is one particularly emotional scene with his father and I will admit to shedding a couple of tears. We get to know a lot more about the Colton family dynamics and also get to meet Logan’s best friend Trevor too. This story really develops and all the threads finally come together. But will Logan truly get over his issues and can Brooklyn trust again? You HAVE to read to find out!!!! I think this was a great sequel though and the fact you really get to see a lot of the important scenes from the last book from Logan’s perspective really made this a worthy read. Plus add to that more Logan and his amazing and sweet character too and it makes for a fab sequel! Another fab four stars from me! ARC in exchange for honest review.
