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

This can be read as a stand alone. Previous characters make an appearance, but their backgrounds do not affect this story in any way.

Logan and Casey suffered psychological trauma. Logan has vicious PTSD from multiple deployments into war zones. Casey's life dream came to an end when he suffered a horrible accident in BUD/S training. One of them can't escape the horrors of war. The other can't imagine a life without it.

An unlikely pair right?

It's interesting to watch them go from instant attract

To say that his stint in the Marines fucked Logan Carter life up, would be an understatement. Sure, the alcohol he used to help cope with the aftermath didn’t help any–nor did being an ass to his now-ex–but having to deal with the PTSD, the memories, the nightmares, and just the general lack of direction, has meant that when his ex gives him a chance to help unfuck his life a bit, Carter knows it might just be his last one. He might not be able to fix the mess he made of the relationship with hi ...more

I really liked this one.

Both MC's were very lovable.
Both fucked up in the head BIG TIME... And both wanting to do everything to go pass this...

This is book seven in the Anchor Point series, and while they are probably better read in order, they’ll work as a standalone. I’ve only read a few books in this series, but I’ve loved every one so far, and Wash Out was no exception.

I loved Logan and Casey and my heart broke for both of these men. Logan has lived through three combat tours and is haunted by what he’s seen, but after seven years of being a civilian, he is finally sober and trying to piece his life back together. He’s also

This was a really good book. I liked Casey and Logan a lot just wish we saw more of their relationship then what happened in bed. would have liked to see them go out (besides that one lunch before they got together) and maybe interact with people as a couple. I was content with the ending although i would have liked to see an epilogue of sorts it was kind of an abrupt ending. but overall nice story. I cannot wait for the next one!

Since that was his life’s goal, he’s lost and purposeless in the world of other sailors and soldiers at Anchor Point. Logan left the Marines seven years ago after three combat tours.

3.5 stars- Oddly enough, I liked the story more than the characters and romance

Wash Out marks the seventh book in the Anchor Point series. I’ve really enjoyed this collection of novels and recommend it to anyone looking for a well-written, accurate military romance. Though there are some intersecting characters, this series is comprised of standalones and I’ve been able to jump around with the reading order without issue. Wash Out ended up being an interesting book because, while it wasn’t my f

4.5 Stars!

Wash Out is book 7 in the Anchor Point series and while it features some of the characters from other installments in it, I think it could be read as a standalone. However, I do suggest reading the other books in the series which are amazing.

Casey washed out from his BUD/S class after an accident that left him with a broken leg and the possibility of more surgeries in his future. He's finding it difficult to cope with the fact that while he might heal well enough not to have to be disc

M/M Romance

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

I was honestly a little hesitant to read this one, as it brings back secondary characters from previous books and makes them the primary ones. I was pleasantly surprised that these characters were so successful in their own roles.

Logan has debilitating PTSD. He was dating another fellow soldier, but we all saw how that ended... after getting himself under some control

Review by The Blogger Girls.

This series is really just so enjoyable. Each one centers around the Anchor Point Naval Base. In this segment, we have two men who, due to different issues, now work for a government contractor. Heading that department is Deigo, whom we met in the previous book. We actually met Logan previously when he dated Clint who also had his own book. Things didn’t end well for them back then, but they are friends now and Clint has been looking out for Logan – helping him get hi

Like many of the Anchor Point books, this one is difficult to read, with men in pain, emotional and
physical. Ms. Witt does an outstanding job of developing characters who fit within the military limits she
has established, both true world and fitting the men who populate her stories.

longer be a SEAL but if he can stay sober and overcome his resentment at the unexpected change in his
career, he

“Someone like him who was driven enough to become a SEAL was never going to be happy anywhere but the front lines. Someone like me who’d been to the front lines would never be able to explain that it was a circle of hell we wouldn’t wish on anyone. Not even the ones who wanted to be there.”

I can’t begin to imagine having worked my entire life for one goal and then, through no fault of my own, having it snatched away and gone for good. I also can’t imagine having such horrible combat related PTSD

3.5 stars - I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a gentler addition to the Anchor Point series. Familiar issues like alcoholism and PTSD return but the storyline here is simpler and Logan and Casey’s work and personal lives are fairly uncomplicated.

Like characters in earlier books, Logan suffers from debilitating PTSD and he wrestles with an alcohol problem. Casey’s problems are new to the series - a serious leg injury ended his dream of becoming a SEAL

Fighting Love

I liked both Logan and Casey, but began to lose some patience with them until they actually got together under the sheets. Then I hung on because I was really curious to see how Logan's PTSD issues would conflict with Chase's trauma of never being able to become a SEAL--and that was a long wait.

The smoldering love story was handled well, but there was too much emphasis on the office situation that surrounded Logan and Chase and the pursuit of completing a job on a strict deadline th

When Logan was with Clint back in another book, I hated him. He was such an assignment. But this story, you got to find out why he was always so drunk and what happened. And it's a hell of a story. Both of these MCs have a hell of a story and it makes things rough. But then anything worth having is worth fighting for.

I loved these guys, I really did, but I also got aggravated with them more than once. I also sympathized with both of them. However, if I had to take sides with either Logan or Casey, I'd have to go with Logan.

Before anyone points this out, I know that I usually don't choose sides. Especially when both characters are living with their own brand of pain. I could just relate to Logan's honesty. He had been where Casey so desperately wanted to go and even though he knew that Casey didn't want to he
I really enjoy this one.
Once again, the author deliver a story where the MC spend time together (Watching TV, talking about happy and sad staff..) without ending in sex. I miss that so much in books. Two people hugging for confort and not it ending up in sex..

ARC reviewed for Netgalley

The Pros:

1. Two good main characters - I liked Logan and Casey. Each one had their own issues and were struggling with the hand that life had dealt them.

2. The PTSD. I really liked that Logan tried to deal with his nightmares through his artwork. The details of his sketches were interesting and poignant. I wanted to read more about them.

3. Despite being #7 in the series, this book can be read as a stand-alone.

The Cons:

1. Lack of development of just about everything in t

I’m not necessarily a big fan of romances featuring men in what are typically considered alpha male jobs, like cops, firemen, athletes, and soldiers. If I read a book with a hero in one of those professions, I generally need a hook to get me into the story.

This romance definitely has a great hook. Logan is an ex-Marine who suffers from PTSD and is trying to get his life back on track after diving into a bottle for the past few years. Casey has always wanted to be a Navy Seal, but a leg injury ha
Really enjoyed this book! Easy to read as a standalone but I found it fun to try to remember some of the past characters in the earlier books. And Logan! Definitely remember his appearance at the Navy Ball. Unlike many in this series, the author seemed to have cut back on her smexy bits. Seemed like there was lots of jizz being flung about in the earlier books but this one took its time in the development of the relationship between Casey and Logan. I loved the rather organic movement from fuck ...more

As an old military brat, I’m easily drawn to books featuring men who serve, so I’ve followed this series with alacrity. This latest tale resonates with authenticity once again. Logan’s PTSD and alcoholism is all too familiar for combat veterans but he gets to redeem himself quite nicely after his poor showing in “Afraid To Fly”. I really liked the technique he used to ground himself after episodes. Casey is caught up in mourning the loss of his SEAL career without any backup plan for his future ...more

My Review:
While I've liked some of these books better than others, I really liked this one. Both of these guys are really relatable. I really enjoyed reading both their stories and really enjoyed watching the two of them growing in their relationship with one another.

Both of them have hard backstories. Logan is a recovering alcoholic. He used alcohol to get through his PTSD after three war-zone tours. So, now he's learning how to live life with PTSD and without alcohol. Casey made it through he

Casey wanted to be a SEAL above everything else. When an injury took that goal away from him he was lost. Stuck at a desk, holding training classes, wasn't how he envisioned his life going. Then Logan came to work in the same office. He didn't see his life going that way either.

Logan used to be a marine. Several tours of duty left him with nightmares and a drinking problem. Sober for several months, he gets a civilian job courtesy of his ex boyfriend. Knowing this was probably his last chance to

I enjoyed the dynamic of this story between the enlisted and formerly enlisted man.

Casey is sitting at a desk job after washing out of Seal training due to an injury. He's not happy about that, but it is what it is. He's not really sure where his life is supposed to go now, because while he wanted to enlist in the Navy, he only always wanted to be a Seal.

Logan is not unfamiliar to us in this series, and I enjoyed his story. He is a former marine who has made some pretty bad mistakes in his lif

What an emotional story. Story of two military men dealing with love and war. Different sides of war. Logan and Casey. One has been in three tours and has PTSD. The other broke his leg and didn't get to become a Navy Seal. One wanting to go to war, one wanting to stay away from it.
They end up in a relationship, and boy oh boy are they smoking hot together. They make a great couple. So loving.
There is some trauma to deal with. Nightmares are a nasty side effect of dealing with PTSD. Causing some

I think this may be my favorite Anchor Point book so far but I have not yet read them all. Casey and Logan both have some major crosses to bear and whether or not either will ever get through is certainly iffy in the beginning. That they are extremely attracted to one another is easily seen and you can feel the chemistry through LA's words. But whether either can get past the other's issues and open up is the question of the day. Can Casey come to terms with the fact that his dream for his futur ...more

3.5. A solid read from L. A. Witt. It's got some heat; it's got some angst; it's got a happy ending. It was exactly what I was looking for, though not everything I'd hoped it would be. Ms. Witt is prolific and, though I really like much of her work, I can say that I wish she'd slow down a bit and spend more time on description. Her guys have nice bodies and butts, some have tighter abs than others and their guys think they're hot. But I wish they'd wax a little more rhapsodic over personality qu ...more
