Product description

Product Description

Phoenix /fēniks/: (in classical mythology) a unique bird inhabiting the Arabian Desert that burned itself on a funeral pyre before rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle.

This isn’t mythology, it’s war, and Hendy is left in the hands of Hell’s cruelest gatekeepers.

His team is killed before his very eyes, and despite his efforts to save them, he’s captured and subjected to merciless torture—losing virtually every piece of his identity but his pulse.

After his rescue, he returns home from Afghanistan, saddled with facing the daunting task of healing his physical scars as well as the invisible ones—his emotional demons.

Dr. Presley Cole isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Embarking on a new journey, she makes it her mission to prove to Hendy that his life isn’t over; that he’s worthy of love.

Because sometimes even a phoenix needs help to rise…
Out of the Ashes.

**Out of the Ashes is a full-length, standalone which does not need to be read in conjunction with any other book.**

Freaking amazing characters in Henry and Presley - dorky, wounded, sweet, sexy! His story stabs your heart and Presley is perfect for him. I snort-laughed, cried and swooned and will probably read this book again and again. RC Boldt is so incredible at telling a compelling and sweet story. Loved x a million!

5.0 out of 5 stars #HendyIsMine #IClaimedHimFirst May 9 2017
By Emilie Tomaro - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Another amazing, touching, kick@ss book by R.C. Boldt.

My most favorite part about reading one of R.C. Boldt's books is that at the end of the day it always comes down to family and how they have each other's back no matter what. Blood relation or doesn't matter. My heart broken for Hendy. I personally have no idea the pain and suffering he went through but the emotions that R.C. Boldt put forth in Out Of The Ashes made you feel like you were right there and just wanted to give the big guy a freaking hug.

Hendy, after returning from being held captive for a year, is trying to adjust to his new "life" and the battle wounds that he carries with him. He feels like he is less of a man because of the scars that he bears. He truly doesn't know how to adjust and isn't really living life to its fullest. Then enters Presley. Oh sweet not so innocent Presley. There is a dirty girl in there waiting to break free but she has been held back by her parents and fiancé.

When Presley and Hendy meet there is a definite attraction between the two. One doesn't think he is worthy enough of someone's love and the other is "stuck" in a relationship. A friendship is formed and the two become close. When Presley becomes single Presley and Hendy become more. The Sex is hot. The Friendship that continues to grow is hotter and I was left needed more. With all relationships times become hard and decisions have to be made. My heart was torn for both Presley and Hendy. No more words can be said. I don't want to give away too much.

I can't say enough how much I truly loved this book. I read it in a day. If I didn't need sleep it would have been devoured in hours. R.C. Boldt has yet to disappoint me with a book and Out Of The Ashes is a 5+ Star read. Definitely pick up your copy today!

I f'in loved Out Of The Ashes! One-Click It Today! You will not be disappointed with Hendy or any of his sexy @ss military friends.

P.S. Is Kane getting a book? I love him to pieces too! Him and his darlin'. Just love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing story of surviving and the love of two people May 17 2017
By TJOly - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Out of the Ashes is such a fantastic story that you'll laugh, cry and cheer on Handy as he recovers from being a hostage to becoming the man who accepts himself as he now is. It will be a long and hard road but his friends Foster, Kane, Heath, Presley and his dog Izzy will be there to help him. I also loved how Jeopardy trivia was included in the story!

Cristiano “Hendy” Hendrixson was a Navy Seal whose team was shot down killing the crew but he was taken prisoners and tortured for info on his father who he never knew. He was finally rescued and recovered as best as he could but he still has a lot of pain (He didn't like pain meds) so a chiropractor was recommended to see if it could help. After one treatment at Presley's they felt an attraction to each other, but he saw her ring so that makes her off limits. There is a back story with a mystery woman, lovely Lucia Presley's massage therapist and Kane is trying to get her to go out with him. But Hendy's story is truly a phoenix rising from the ashes and with the love of Presley he'll accept himself as he now is.

Presley Cole is realizing that her fiance is only interested in her parents and becoming partner in his firm. But when she finds out he's getting some on the side, she puts an end to it quickly. When she meets Hendy in her exam room, she sees him not with his scars but as the beautiful person he'll be when he accepts himself completely.

I cannot wait for the next book hopefully it will be Kane and Lucia's book until then I'll try to be patient.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Phoenix Has Risen May 10 2017
By Liz Castillo - Published on

Hot damn.... the Phoenix has risen!

I'm not gonna lie, I was eagerly awaiting for Out of the Ashes to land on my reader and it was totally worth the wait. RC Boldt really knocked it out of the park with this book and the readers reap the rewards.

Hendy is not your typical alpha hero, he's a survivor. He's seen the worst and after a few bumps in the road, he's come out on the other end a better man.

Presley is not slouch either. She's a strong, independent woman that works hard to cares deeply. She's been thrown some hard knocks here and there, but she's a kind, loving person despite it. Her heart is pure and made of gold.

The chemistry between Hendy and Presley is hot, hot, hot. I love watching them fight their connection because it's clear that they belong together. And when the path was cleared for them to finally be together the temperature rises quickly. There's a lot of sexy goodness contained between the pages of Out of the Ashes.

I loved every single minute of Out of the Ashes and couldn't put it down. I have loved all of RC Boldt's heroes, but Hendy is now by far my ultimate favorite.

Out of the Ashes is a fun, sexy, captivating book that will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish. The love is intense and the angst intriguing. This is a read that will give you a book hangover that will stay with you long after you've finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of those books that I have no words for. May 9 2017
By Amanda - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second time I have had the privilege of reading this book and let me tell you it gets better each time you read it. This is one of those books that I have no words for. RC Boldt has a way of dealing with heavy subjects in a way that makes you feel everything that the character is going through but at the same time with enough levity and humor to make you fall completely in love with the words on the page.

This book is about a former SEAL that was injured and his journey to recovery, but it is so much more than that. These characters are real. They are not perfect. They do not always have the answers or handle things the way they should, but that makes the book so much better. The care she takes in portraying PTSD and military veterans in her books is outstanding. I highly encourage you to look past the "heavy" nature of the subject matter of this book and truly enjoy this close-knit group and the family that they created. They are so real and fun and amazing that you will want to immediately find out more about each of them and reserve your spot at Mamma K's table for Sunday Dinner. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is so good you will not want to put it down.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Read this book! May 15 2017

I freaking love RC Boldt and waiting for Hendy's story was well worth the wait because this book did not disappoint! This was an amazing book and reading from the perspective of a character who was a prisoner of war was emotionally moving. RC does a superb job relaying the emotions someone with PTSD would have to overcome and learn to live with. Her ability to share these feelings in such a realistic and inspiring way is so moving. I can't to tears a few times reading this one.

Hendy. Oh Hendy. I honestly don't even know how to put into words how much I just wanted to reach out and hug him throughout the entire book. He truly is a survivor and RC did an amazing job portraying the emotions that someone who went through what he went through did. And Presley, wow, what an amazing person with such a kind heart. I loved their dynamic immediately and knew that RC would do a great job bringing their story to light. I loved their journey and I loved this book. Highly highly recommend!
