Rebound (Rewind Book 4) By Rowna Shaw – Review by Sarah Oakes

Rebound (Rewind #4)Rebound by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about breakups. Nosh thought he had it all. But when he finds his boyfriend Hugo cheating on him with an actor, his whole world is turned upside down. He turns to his friend Adrien and stays at his house for a while. Can he get over Hugo and move on?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Noah standing up for himself but emotive underneath or Hugo as cold and manipulative. Great cast of supporting characters like the fun friend Nour or the supportive Adrien or the quieter Raphael.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with Paris with its streets full of life and people and colour despite Noahs mood contrasting perfectly. Or the scenes at dinner with the candles and food as intimate and homely. Or Rapheals house with its sense of culture with bright paintings and lots of books with smells and sounds so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display all the sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in the chapter titles. I also liked the use of French culture throughout the novel with its foods and language giving the book a sense of character. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
