REWIND By Rowan Shaw – Review By Stacey Baxter

Rewind (Rewind #1)Rewind by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I must fully admit I don’t usually read m/m novels but I’m so glad I read this one it was a beautiful story. I’m a sucker for a second chance romance especially after a tragedy that originally pulled them apart but seeing the story unravel was magical. I was glued to this story I didn’t move for 2 hours I had to carry in reading til the very end I needed to know the outcome and I was eager to keep turning the pages I was just lost in their world!

Rewind is the first book in the Rewind series. Thankfully it does not end in a cliffhanger.

This book had me sad, angry, and happy. The characters go through many challenges as the story is woven, and you feel it all. I appreciated the clear definition between the chapters that are set in the past and the ones set in the present. Some books don’t make those shifts clear so I’m really glad the author took the time to differentiate them so well.

This is the second book I’ve read in the past month that has had a person from the Deaf community as a main character. I didn’t know how much I needed to understand the struggles they go through until I ran across these kinds of books. It has been an eye-opening experience for sure. I am grateful there are authors out there bringing these kinds of experiences to readers’ awareness.

I enjoyed Enzo and Florian’s story so much! I’m really excited that Raphael’s story is in the next book because his character is also intriguing. You just know it’s going to be good. 😉

Rewind was a really interesting read. It had a really lovely storyline to it, I really liked the characters and I think the author explored something different with them also which I really enjoyed. It was nice to read about different characters and their lifestyles. I can’t say that I connected with any of the characters in particular but I certainly liked reading about them. I’m not usually a fan of m/m stories but Florian and Enzo were really nice, genuine characters to read about – I definitely felt for Florian during those first few chapters told from his POV. I really liked Enzo and it was great that the author did explore something different for his character it made him seem so much more real. I think he was my favourite character in the story, there was just something about him – I really admired the strength he had to overcome what happened to him.
As the author’s debut novel I was really impressed and I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this….absolutely loved it. I don’t read M/M romances too often but this one intrigued me so I gave it a go. This is so much more than a romance between two people. It actually made me *feel* what it was like to be them….against every prejudice you can Imagine. From outting themselves and just showing affection in public to rejection from family and friends to public ridicule. They had a long road to journey down to get to their happy ending.

Enzo is amazing! So strong and smart! I loved everything about him. He has a heart of gold! His struggle to overcome made him who he became to be. Florian is a different sort of strong. What he had to overcome is not the same as Enzo but caused by the same “accident”. I almost feel he got the worst end of the deal. When they are together it’s easy to see how happy they both become by their smiles and gestures.

This is my first book by this author. I loved the writing..it is so easy to read and I finished this In one day. I couldn’t put it down. It is filled with suspense, charm and many lovely moments. My only complaint would be Enzos family. I felt that was left open ended. But really it’s a small issue in the grand scheme of things. The characters were great! I think I would love a Patrick in my life. He seemed a “no holds barred” kind of guy. I see the next book is out so I will be diving into that next.

The day Enzo Chevalier lost his hearing, everything changed. Forced to rebuild his future and fight for his dreams, Enzo refused to let anything take him down…until the man of his life walked out on him and shattered his heart.

Florian Beaudry had his whole life figured out. His business was flourishing and everything was settling down at last. Or so he believed…until he walked in on his girlfriend and best friend.

Still on the rebound and unable to trust another man, Enzo never expected a chance encounter with Florian. The one person he thought he would never see again. The one person he missed the most.

Were they truly meant to get a second chance or were they doomed from the start?
