I think I have just discovered my favorite book written by RC Boldt!  Out of the Ashes was one of the best novels I’ve had the pleasure to read this year.  Boldt’s rom-com quirky humor was paired to equally match the hard edged story of a Navy Seal surviving in the aftermath of being a prison of war making this story’s heavy message be delivered in such a loving way.

Boldt has a way with writing some hunky alpha men with a sense of humor unlike any other author currently writing.  While they are tall, intimidating, menacing when needed, in the heart they are all just big loveable teddy bears with a soft spot for their girl.  That was exactly the case for Hendy.  Hendy was as lovable as they come.  I found his battered body and soul completely endearing.  My heart reached out right along with Presley’s to love him back to health.  

Presley Cole… My inner nerd squealed with delight while getting to read this character!  Presley is infectious. Her humor, outlook on life, and innocence was the absolute perfect match for Hendy.  She was so easy to relate to and root for throughout this novel. I believe to date, she is my favorite female character Boldt has produced.  

I should mention Out of Ashes can be  a standalone, you can find several of the side characters in a previous novel, Out of Love.  So far, each novel has been based around the alpha military man and the girl that sweeps them off their feet.  I can only hope Kane Windham will be the next man, Boldt gives us!  His Texas charm made him hard to resist as a side character in this novel!  Can’t wait to see if he wins over Lucia!

With all that being said, Out of Ashes is just one of those books you have to experience.  It’s message is so heartfelt while the characters are so lovable, you won’t want to miss out. So go ahead, give in meet Hendy and one click this amazing book by one of my go to authors!
