Release Blitz with Review: Washed Up by Kandi Steiner

December 8, 2021




Washed Up by Kandi Steiner is now live!

It was just another day in the Emergency Department -- until she was wheeled in through the doors.

Amanda Parks, my childhood best friend's mom who I may or may not have secretly kissed before leaving for college.

I haven't seen her in over a decade, and in so many ways, she hasn't changed.

Same killer curves.
Same hypnotizing eyes.
Same reaction from my heart when I see her.

But something new?
There isn't a ring on her finger anymore...
And I'm much more of a man than I was at eighteen.

Washed Up is a stand-alone age gap medical romance coming this winter!

I never thought that I would feel so much for these characters, but I did and this is why this author is my go to when it comes to romance books. Washed Up was the exact type of book that I was looking for at this moment. It was comforting, slow and easy, wth the perfect mix of forbidden desire that you didn't know you were craving.

Forty seven year old Amanda has sacrificed a lot over the past thirty years but through it all the one bright light has been her son. After being in a tumultuous marriage that redefined her life, she’s now looking forward to getting her life back on track. But when an accident derails her plans and brings someone back from her past, life as Amanda knows it is about to get real complicated.


For the past ten years Greg has been going non stop when it comes to achieving a career in medicine. Now a highly respected doctor, he’s now looking forward to putting down roots and calling a place his own. Seeing his best friend’s mom after all these years was something that caught him by surprise but if you were to ask him if he’s upset with that, he’ll kindly smirk and tell you that’s the best thing that's ever happened to him since graduating med school. But what happens when the lines are blurred between a new found friendship and an impending forbidden romance?

I really enjoyed this one and I liked that it was more of a slow burn romance and you saw the development of their friendship, felt their connection towards each other and saw the passion that was looming. Everything wasn't always perfect and I did have a few issues some things but overall this was a really good read for me. If you’re looking for a slow burn forbidden romance, I highly recommend you go with this one.

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing "emotional rollercoaster" stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance -- in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you're a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she's your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women's Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her "freedom of press." She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn't writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine -- not necessarily in that order.
