He was the only one for me.
When I close my eyes I still see the way he looked at me all those years ago. The way it felt to have someone so amazing in my life especially after my parents abandoned me. The bond that only a childhood friend could understand. He was my balance and never let me fall But I lied to him…
She was my better half.
I remember the fear she hid under her smile when I met her. There were so many adventures that we lived a hundred lifetimes in our minds. She was the reason I got up in the morning. She was my gravity and kept me grounded. But then she lied…
He kept my heart when I broke his.
I was never going to see him again. He would always hate me, even if he knew the truth. It would be better this way. If only he hadn't kept my heart.
She threw my heart away when I wanted her to have it the most.
She ruined every memory that we made with a simple sentence. My life would be better without her. If only she hadn't kept my heart.
At forty thousand feet the Earth shifted, and planets aligned. My world came into focus and for once I was no longer unsteady and ready to fall. As the wings of the plane drifted over the icy cold ocean my heart warmed when I saw him. Once I saw his eyes and the way he was looking at me I knew…
He was the balance I always needed
...And she was mine.

Unsteady kicks off in chapter one by giving us a glimpse into the childhood lives of its main characters, London and Logan. London and Logan both attend a Catholic boarding school and have similar backgrounds in that they both feel utterly abandoned by their families. The connection that they share as children is very heartfelt and the author does a good job of portraying this. Despite the book seeming rather rushed (which is to be expected from its 313 pages), I think the author also does a fantastic job of getting the reader attached to the characters. I was sufficiently swept away and invested in these characters and wanted to keep reading to see what happens to London and Logan and see how their story unfolds. Unsteady is a steamy romance novel. As for the adult relationships that occur in this book, several of them are of an erotic nature. Logan is certainly a ladies man, there is no mistake about that. He is an airline pilot that tends to have lurid relationships with women all over the world. His behaviors aren’t completely debased; well actually…they are, but rather the reason is somewhat understandable. However, the aspect of the book that I thought could have used some polish was the language used in the erotic encounters. I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say that when I see the term “one eyed snake” it doesn’t evoke ideas of romance. The novel is filled with these hot and heavy moments that turn this steamy romance into a erotic story that will keep you wide eyed. This combination will be welcomed by any fan of the romance genre and it is certainly intriguing, but it’s marked by a change in tone and story telling. The romance part of the novel is well done, as stated earlier, I was invested in the characters and couldn’t wait to see how their relationship turned out. But while the expert writing skill displayed in these romance section easily gets you invested, the writing in the erotic sections of the book doesn’t seem to match. I felt like most of the story was written by someone with superb writing skills while the erotic sections were written by a teenager with raging hormones. But I don’t want to make it sound like the book was unreadable though, I enjoyed the suspense of the story and the action surrounding London’s job with the CIA. Overall, this book contains an entertaining story that will leave you biting your nails. Romance novels are about the characters and their relationships, and this book has some alluring characters that get into some… sticky situations.
Unsteady by Elizabeth York is a contemporary romance novel and one that I just couldn’t put down. Following the story of Logan and London, who parted ways years ago because of anger and betrayal, or so they thought. Logan needed to understand why London left, why she left she couldn’t come to him, why leaving seemed like the only option. When he finds that she is coming back to town, Logan is willing to do whatever it takes to get the answers he wants, no needs to finally move on. Coming together again, the feeling of hurt is still there but underneath that, a romance that couldn’t die if it wanted to. These two, once they found each other again, couldn’t get enough of each other. Seeing these two characters have to work through their past in order to get to a better future, was beautiful. This was definitely an emotional read that spans several years and shows what a real relationship is like. This read is an emotional rollercoaster, but York makes this relationship one that is easy to fall into. York is a newer to me author, but I am so happy that I picked this one up. York has a way of showing characters and storyline the best light and pulling her readers into the stories that she weaves in the best possible way. If you are looking for an amazing story.
Unsteady- Elizabeth York 4-star review “You’ll always be my apple even if it’s not my basket you’re in.” Unsteady by Elizabeth York is an emotional romance read from start to finish. Logan and London’s relationship is so unique, I’ve never read anything like it. From the very beginning I knew I was in for an emotional roller coaster ride, I ended up feeling all kinds of emotions, from sadness, shock, anger, confusion and happiness. Not surprising I even shed quite a few tears. This storyline is action-packed, dark and twisted, there were so many twist and turns that I never saw coming which certainly made it entertaining. I loved how well Elizabeth was able to write about the love between Logan and London, it felt so real! I will admit that there were a few times where I was a bit confused, it felt like I was missing information in order to piece it all together, however, this didn’t take away from my reading experience. This was my first book by Elizabeth York, but it certainly won’t be my last, I look forward to reading Brooklyn’s story next. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next romance read!
Man what is there to not like about this book. . . okay yes there were somethings that made my head spin but that's the way it's supposed to be right. Anyway this is a crazy story that is made all the more realistic by certain aspects the author added to keep us grounded. The story is very emotional and is reflected through flashbacks that help us understand all they were to each other and how we got to the here and now. The things that were done in the name of family and lies and betrayal from those closest to her just made me want to weep. This author gives us a read that is well written and has more highs and lows than a woman during menopause and I loved/hated every bit of it. You will feel the emotions of the characters and feel the pain and abandonment, the condemnation, the punishment, the anger all of it will come and more. Then and only when you get to the end do you have the entire story and then only then can you take a breath. Awesome story from this new to me author who I will most definitely be reading more of in the near future.
5 Apples! Review by Lisa Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Unsteady by Elizabeth York is one of those books that has everything. From growing up to becoming adults; love; family; mafia touches to the influence of a political figure; even a little bit of mystery. There is just so much about this book to love. All the little aspects that all bloom and/or explode at different points during the story. To the dual point of views that just completes this story. Even though this story is a little over 300 pages, it feels more like 10 pages and its over. The story moves so smoothly that it just keeps you hooked. I don't want to give anything away, but I just am amazed how there is just so much in this story and how well Ms. York put it all together. The parts when your heart just breaks for them to the swoon worthy moments to the life lesson given. Just amazing. Oh did I mention you get to revist old favorites, Brooklyn and Kate!! People come and go out of our lives, but when Logan and London meet at a young age, they have this immediate connection together. Like gravity is pulling them towards each other. But when London lies to Logan and disappears, life can get complicated when your so unsteady. But on a chance flight, gravity still has a way pulling them together. Can they survive the storm brewing in what we call life? Can secrets be forgiven? Can they gain their balance? You just really have to read this book.
