Rewind Boxed SetRewind Boxed Set by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Rewind boxed set puts Rowan Shaw’s entire series all in one easy grab.
The series starts with Rewind. This is a wonderful story of two men reconnecting. Enzo is deaf but has not let this get in his way. He is a strong man who has had his heart broken. Florian had his life under control until he has his life torn apart by love.
The characters are well written. I liked despite challenges the men are strong but not to the point of being unbearable. The story is good also. I wanted the best for both Enzo and Florian. The story of a second chance at love and how we all deserve the chance is good. The secondary characters were interesting and were a nice complement to the main characters. They helped the main characters to tell the story but did not take away from them.
The series continues with Return. I enjoyed the first book in the series and was interested in what would happen in this book. This can be read as a standalone and enjoyed because the story is contained. Raphaël Diop is a student living in Paris looking for affordable housing. Adrien Dupuis has a room available in his apartment. The two do not have much in common and live very separate lives. Will their relationship change?
The characters are well written and I enjoyed learning about them. Also, the secondary characters added to the story and did not take away from the story of Adrien and Raphaël. This is a bisexual romance and if this is not a comfortable theme this might not be the book for you. I believe that if you can read this story you will enjoy this book and get to know Raphaël and Adrien better.
Revive is the third in this great series. Brandon is a recently divorced father who is grappling with his sexuality. Patrick is single and does not think he is relationship material. What happens when the two hook up one evening? This is a good story dealing not only with a fledgling relationship. I also liked Brandon is dealing with his bisexuality and the prejudice he comes across. This is dealing with realistic topics and handles it well.
Rebound rounds out this series. Some of the characters are coming full circle and returning in this book. There are characters which reoccur and having the background is helpful. The characters are very well written and they tell a story which could be battered and treated poorly with love and respect. There are polyamorous relationships and they are told wonderfully and explained from all parts of the relationship. Rowan Shaw makes the characters easy to relate to which leaves you wanting the best for all parties. I really enjoyed this book as well as the others in the series.
