“Wash Out” is the seventh book in L.A. Witt’s Anchor Point series. Casey’s dream was to become a Navy SEAL, but when his leg is broken his dream is broken along with it. Now stuck in an office job, with no hope of becoming a SEAL Casey feels lost, and unsure of his future. Logan, a former Marine, drowned his PTSD in alcohol, and is now looking for a second chance. Finally, finding his life back on track he needs this job to work, but quickly forms a connection to his attractive new coworker, Casey. Both men start to fall for each other, but both must also deal with the demons of their past before they destroy their relationship and new beginnings.
“Wash Out” is a great story that includes romance, humor, and real life struggles. Witt’s humor is contagious in this book, and readers will find themselves laughing out loud at some of the antics of the heroes and their coworkers. Logan and Casey are great together, and both are fully dimensional characters who grow and come to life on the page. Though light hearted and humorous, the seriousness of real life and struggle is felt, and this adds emotional depth and believability to the story. The secondary characters, such as Diego and Sarah are fantastically written and witty, and it will be hard for readers to put this book down, as they learn more about Casey and Logan’s lives. This book is a fantastic read, and though part of a series, it can easily standalone. I high recommend “Wash Out,” as I find the story funny, emotional, romantic, and an all-around well-written and enjoyable read.
Casey Olson has always known he was destined to be a Navy SEAL, and the best day of his life was when he was accepted into training. The worst day was when a snapping bone ended his dream.
After three combat tours in five years, Logan Carter left the Marines and self-destructed. Now he’s sober and, thanks to a forgiving ex with friends in high places, has a promising job as a civilian contractor. All he has to do is stay on the rails and out of a bottle, even when his demons won’t leave him alone.
Logan likes his job, and he really likes the gorgeous man at the next desk. Casey tries not to check Logan out, but who is he kidding? From the start, despite their best efforts, neither man can resist the other. Sizzling chemistry leads to sex so hot they can both almost forget why they’re stuck in this office to begin with.
It would be perfect, except Logan can’t stop reliving wars he’ll never forget and Casey can’t stop grieving the SEAL he’ll never be. And they’ll never have a future together until they can make peace with their pasts.
