Review: Washed Away by RC Boldt

USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt brings us a sizzling romance chock-full of intrigue and deceit in this brand new romantic suspense…

All that’s forgotten isn’t always gone…

I’m at death’s doorstep when my body washes up on shore in Panama.

My memory is a blank slate. I can’t even remember my name. I don’t know who shot me and left me for dead—or why.

Patient and kind, the lone doctor there mends my body while offering me refuge.

But as tiny flashbacks of my past occur, I wonder if there’s anyone I can trust.

It’s up to me to discover whether I’m in danger or a danger to others. Whether I’ve actually found love or if it’s all been a lie.

I need answers to find out who I really am.

If only I could remember…

My Review:
Title: Washed Away
Author: R.C. Boldt
Format: ebook
Genre: Romantic suspense, amnesia
Standalone: yes
Part of a Series: no
POV: Liam, Her/Alex, Roman, Sergei
Steam Level: slow burn to steamy

I really like R.C. Boldt, especially her romantic suspense books. Washed Away was engrossing and intriguing. While I figured out a big plot point pretty early on I wasn’t sure the motivation behind it. Others parts were surprising while another was completely unexpected. I enjoyed how this story was told, learning about Alex through journal entries before she even knew who she was. Washed Away kept me reading to see what happened because I honestly had no idea on how this story would play out.

I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.
