    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 favorite couple or romance of the series, the story and character development was one of my favorites. I’m always up for a good character redemption and I had faith that Miss Witt would deliver just that with Logan’s character in Wash Out. She did. Readers of the series will remember Logan as Clint’s obnoxious drunk date at the start of Afraid to Fly. I really enjoyed learning Logan’s full story and seeing the sober side to him. Once again Witt’s raw honesty regarding the struggle with sobriety many veterans with PTSD face struck me. There was so much emotion tied up into Logan’s daily choices, outlook, and the nightmares he faced every time he closed his eyes, and those unerringly came through to paint a vivid character portrayal. I also enjoyed the pairing of Logan, a combat veteran, with Casey, an active duty sailor who desperately wanted to be a Seal. I liked seeing their different viewpoints about deployments and combat, and enjoyed watching each of them develop as they sought to fully understand and appreciate each other’s point-of-view. Obviously I loved this side of Wash Out, the character development and struggle with PTSD, including both the one who suffered with it as well as a loved one who doesn’t quite understand it. What I was missing in Wash Out was that compelling chemistry and emotion between Logan and Casey. I liked them, but I never felt that overwhelming draw or emotion between them. That isn’t to say that they didn’t fit, they did, but I didn’t experience the “why” and I wanted to. Between the lack of a palpable connection and the more superficial relationship development, the romance in Wash Out simply didn’t live up to others in the Anchor Point series. Do I think Wash Out is worth the read? Certainly. I especially think fans of military romances that deal with PTSD will appreciate the individual character development in this book. It’s just that, for me, Logan’s story ended up stealing the spotlight from his and Casey’s romance. *eARC received via Netgalley. The publisher and author had no influence over this review*

    Wash out

    Writing about PTSD is not an easy topic. PTSD comes in as many forms and through many different reasons as there are humans in the world. L. A. WITT hit the topic in the head but gives hope that even though it is tough to live with it is not impossible to find happiness. I love these stories.
