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

I found this to be a heartbreaking story for the most part, I think I had a lump in my throat for at least 3 1/4 of it. It is highly emotional but it is also deep and has several twists and turns, the plot is far more complex than you think at the beginning. Not all the characters are who they appear to be either as becomes more clear as you move through the book, in fact I almost got whiplash at how fast some of them seemed to change. Logan, I could have throttled a few times with his lack of a ...more

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.

Lying gets you nowhere and nothing but a broken heart and a torn apart soul.
Logan always knew that London was going to be his.
London was always scared to trust.

Fast forward years later. One city, two people and a world of distance until one day, the past comes back to haunt them both.

There's a mystery brewing and you don't quite know what it is until the last few chapters of this book.
Some characters I loved. Some I wanted to throttle. Most importantly I couldn't stop caring about the love

I've been reading so many books this year that it's almost impossible to keep up but I try so hard and I can't give up. There are days that I say I'm gonna slow down but who am I kidding? I don't really want to.
I've only read one book from this author but let me tell you that it was enough to make me a greedy girl. Elizabeth York's writing is that intense and addicting. Her words can wake up feelings and turn you into a mess. Give her a chance and find out for yourself.

Apples to Oranges had nothing on the two main characters who couldn't be more perfect for each other. London and Logan were both young and abandoned when they met. Both yearning for a family they didn't have until they found each other. In their friendship, they found family.

In this book, I felt anger, sadness, hate, but I also felt love, compassion, happiness, and even my own yearning to want to help them. I have to admit that it has been a while since a book both had me in love and in tears,

4 emotional stars!! This book was exactly what I needed. I was an emotional mess when I finished.

This is a book of second chances, first loves, and past regrets.

“...Together you two are stable and invincible. Apart you are both unsteady and feeble.”

Wow! First of all, I loved these characters. I think London and Logan are just perfect with their flaws and all. I love all

Unsteady by Elizabeth York is a wonderful second chances/contemporary romance. It is well written, with depth to the storyline, and lots of emotion. I could feel and ‘see’ the heart and soul that Ms. York has infused into this story, which made the experience all the more memorable. The characters are complex, but beautifully developed ‘people’ who took me on a journey that I didn’t want to leave. There were times that they frustrated me, and I really wanted to shake some sense into them

UNSTEADY is a book that is told in dual POV in present time with flashbacks to the past. Because both main characters have a name that starts with L, it took me a few pages to settle in.

This book really has it all. Mystery, suspense, sex and romance. It's first love on steroids.

The female protagonist is the sister from the "Brooklyn Series". There are references to that series but I don't think it is enough to make anything confusing. There is a character named "Sister Katherine" who I would lo

I really enjoyed this book. This was my first book by Elizabeth York and I cannot wait to read more. There was a mystery I couldn't quite put my finger on till the last few chapters. I loved the love story Logan and London. There was a few characters that I loved and a few I wanted to punch. I could not put this book down, I had to know what was going t0 happen next. I stayed up way past bed time to finish this. Everyone will want to read this book. This is a must read!!!!

Liz can still rip your feelings even after you think there are no more to rip. Elizabeth York has a talent for creating characters that grasp you and never let go. She has once again scored with Unsteady. Finding two characters that have been through so much at a young age who lose each other and in many ways their selves only to slowly find their way back. I love a great second chance story and York has created just that. While Unsteady is a standalone book you will be happy to find many of the ...more

“You okay? Do you feel unsteady?” “Not anymore.”

“Why would you want to marry me? I asked as he breathlessly walked over to me?

“We’re just kids. You can’t possibly think I’m the girl you will wind up with. How can you think that?” He placed his hands on either side of my neck and kissed me again. I liked his kisses, not only did I feel like a grown –up, but my heart fluttered, and my lips felt him even after he let me go. This time I kissed him back until he pulled away and stared into my eyes

Unsteady by Elizabeth York 5 Stars!

Be prepared for a fast paced, action packed story! This is my first book by Elizabeth York, but it certainly won't be my last! This story had me caught up in a whirlwind of emotions and I couldn't put it down! The characters are true to life and I found that one moment I would hate someone, but the next I would love them! There is so much happening in this story! Suspense, mystery, love, romance, lying, secrets and more are packed into this novel. I really enjo
Young love is meant to be and sometimes it was meant to be just that; however, when you have two soul mates that make a half a whole it is hard to keep it whole when it was left broken into two while trying to hold onto the memories. Fate brought them together and then fate threw them together in the air at a time when they need to be no longer Unsteady and to release all the secrets and sadness that made up their story. This is an emotional story, full of misunderstandings and you see how compl ...more

How is this the first book I have read by this author!?! This book has all the feels. Anger, love, heartache, hope, laughter, mystery, intrigue.

Logan and London are the very best of friends while growing up in a boarding school as children. Both were abandoned by their families or so they thought. This is where the mystery comes in. There is evil at work in this story which adds to the twisting plot of this story. When Logan and London are adults, fate brings them together, but does it even mat

(4.5 stars)

Unsteady is a second chance romance set in the same world Elizabeth York created with the Water Wishes and the Brooklyn books; London, the female lead in this book is actually Brooklyn's sister.

London, a CIA agent and Logan, an airline pilot, knew each other as children and into their teens when they were both sent away to boarding school in London. Events led to them being separated and not seeing each other again until six years later when London happens to be on

This book is absolute perfection. This book is bae. I completely one hundred percent loved this book. The only thing negative I have to say is that sometimes Elizabeth York would use big words when needing to repeat the same idea in a sentence. I would need to look them up and that bothered me.

Logan and London are meant to be together. I know they are fictional but they are just perfect. So perfect that if they were real, I'd probably puke from how perfect they are.

Unsteady by Elizabeth York is one emotional story that was heartbreaking and one comlex storyline that keeps you on your toes. There are so many twists and turns throughout this journey of a love that is fated but does not always goes smoothly. There is just so much to love about this story, faith and love, heartache and loss, lies and secrets and that is only the beginning. This story is told in dual points of view, which I love because you get to understand so much more and Elizabeth did a gre ...more

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 togethe ...more

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 act

Elizabeth York's Unsteady is contemporary romantic suspense. I really enjoyed the way the author laid out the story giving pieces of history as the story progresses. This story was an emotional back and forth, push and shove story that will absolutely pull at every emotional tie while leaving a suspenseful dynamic in the process. Logan and London were so well written within this novel and I felt their struggles, their strengths, their indecisiveness, and their triumphs as I read them. The charac ...more
”You’ll always be my apple even if it’s not my basket you’re in.”

A fast paced, contemporary, second chances, romance read mixed with a little bit of suspense that kept me turning the pages.

I really enjoyed reading Logan and London’s story. I felt the plot flowed, the concept of switching between past and present, told through dual POV is one I like. Mixed with a little suspense added to the plot. I thought the characters were well developed, likeable and you could relate to them.

I loved everything about this book.. London and Logan met when they were both left by there family's at a school in London.. They were young and grew up together in this school and learned to fall in love with each other till one day when something drastic happens and it rips there world apart, leaving one full of hate and the other full of regrets. Fast Forward 6-7 yrs.. London works for the CIA and Logan is a Airline Pilot.. when they meet again 30K feet in the air..

Unsteady by Elizabeth York is a great story of understanding and second chances.
Two best friends, each giving the other exactly what they need. Two best friends who become so much more. They are each other’s world. Until suddenly she left, leaving behind a broken heart and the only person she ever could rely on.
When years later they meet again, that first single meeting is enough to confirm they need to be together. But can then overcome everything from their past? Or are the odds just insurmou

Five Stars

So much pain and betrayal in this story. London is definitely a better person than most. I can’t believe all she put up with and all the lies. This story will have you angry and sad at the same time. Logan is a playboy hiding a broken heart. The history of this couple is super sweet but turn sour and painful. There is so many regrets and loses in this story. Sister Katherine was a low key freak she let them get away with a lot and her relationship with London’

Unsteady by Elizabeth York was a highly addictive read. I thought the book was so long as I was reading it but now looking back, there was so much that happened in the book so it needed to be long.
The characters were all pretty lovable. This book describes how London and Logan were both sent away to boarding school at young ages. They quickly became best friends and fell for eachother. They would sneak out and go on adventures all the time. Sister Catherine was able to tell from the beginning th

This book has broken me. I have cried so much my eyes are just slits in my face right now. Elizabeth York is a new to me author and I wish I'd found her earlier. Unsteady is so well written and emotional; I am wrung out.

Logan and London's story is epic! They meet at the age of seven and eight in a boarding school run by nuns; they are instantly drawn and so am I. Every word I felt deep in my soul. Their families are unusual and complicated; they are woven into the story and make it eve

Unsteady by Elizabeth York was a good love at first sight/second chance romances and it was very sweet and heart breaking.

London was amazing. To love someone the way she loved Logan and to sacrifice so much because of that love, it made me respect her a lot.

Logan is a true book boyfriend, there may be guys out there like that but I've never met one.

There were parts of the book that kept me so engrossed I didn't realize how much time had passed while reading it. London's sister Brooklyn was great

Unsteady by Elizabeth York is a standalone contemporary romance. I was immediately sucked into this book and couldn’t put it down! Nothing is as it seems. There are twists and turns that you don’t expect and even the characters aren’t who you make them out to be.

London is used to feeling abandoned. Her parents for the most part abandoned her and she wasn’t so good at making friends. That is until she meets Logan. In their past, some events transpire and now they are like strangers to each other
