This is one of my favorite series of this year. I absolutely loved all of the stories in this series. This set contains Rewind, Return, Revive, and Rebound. I want to let the readers know that this is a M/M series that takes place in France. Once I started this series I could not stop. I could not get enough of these characters. I devoured these books in only a couple of weeks.

REWIND Boxed set (Rewind Series Books 1-4) By Rowan Shaw – Review by Heather Harmon

Wow, This series has some great characters and a great storyline that flow together nicely to the next book. The writing style really brings some depth to the books. I couldn’t put them down. I like that the stories are coming from the characters. It was nice to read about the LGBTQ Community and see the struggles they deal with in relationships as well. I enjoyed the french setting and how the stories opened my eyes to the LGBTQ community even more.

MUST-READ SERIES!!

Rewind series is the debut novel by Rowan Shaw. If you are like me and love a really good romance in the LGTBQ community then this series is for you. This series takes place in Paris, France and each book you follow a different couple. As these books can be read as a standalone; I highly recommend reading in order do to interconnected characters.

Rowan’s writing was so truthful and emotional that I wanted to fight alongside these characters. You will be on a roller-coaster of emotions from Rewind to Rebound.

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.

The Rewind boxed set by Rowan Shaw was really good! Each book was extremely well written, had a great storyline, and amazing characters! This series has become a quick favorite of mine, just because each book is so inclusive and sheds a lot of light on the LGBTQ+ community as a whole. I immensely enjoyed reading these novels and getting to know all the characters. I highly recommend this series, and I can’t read to read more from Shaw in the future!

Four Stars

Rewind is the first book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw. This book can be read as a standalone, but I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. I love the setting in France, and the character growth from both men. This is a second chance romance that tells the story of Enzo and Florian. This book brought out all of my emotions. I was laughing, crying, tearing my hair out and routing for this couple. I really enjoyed this story and all of the growth and heartache that both of these guys go through.

Return is the second book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw. This book can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading Rewind first as that is where we meet Raphael for the first time. This book started out a little slow for me, but really made up for it by the end. This is Raphael and Adrein’s story. I love the witty banter between the two of them, and how their story comes together. The love scenes are sizzling hot.

Revive is the third book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw. The first two books are wonderful and there are recurring characters that appear in this book. This is Patrick and Brandon’s story. I love how the author makes the characters come to life. I was rooting for them the whole way. This is my favorite book of the series so far, but I can’t wait to read the next book. If you are a fan of MM romance, I highly recommend this series.

Rebound is the fourth book in this set by Rowan Shaw. What an amazing read. Rowan saved the best for last. This is Noah’s story, and it has all of the feels you can want in a book. The emotional ups and downs are heartfelt and the characters are true to life. This truly was an awesome series that I can’t recommend enough. It grabbed me by the heartstrings and I couldn’t put it down.

REWIND Boxed set (Rewind Series Books 1-4) By Rowan Shaw. This is an amazing box set. Book 1 Rewind is the story of Enzo Chevalier who lost his hearing changing every facet of his life. He thought that was the worst thing ever but then the man of his dreams walked out on him leaving him broken. When he meets Florian Beaudry he realizes his life might just be beginning. Book 2 Return is the story of Raphael Diop who can only afford to live in Paris by moving in with Adrien Dupuis. Everything worked out fine until they crossed the line between them when Adrien told him he was attracted to him. The living arrangement is the only thing that lets Raphael stay in Paris so he’s too scared to try a relationship that could ruin everything. Book 3 Revive is the story of Patrick Lefevre who is all about his family. There is no time for hookups or relationships until he meets Brandon Smith a recent divorcee. After they hook up Brandon realizes that Patrick is his new therapist. Can they give a relationship a go or will it mess everything up. Book 4 Rebound is the story of Bisexual YouTuber Noah Perrin who has everything he could dream of. He had a great career, all the things money can buy and a great relationship with his boyfriend Hugo until Hugo dumps him. He thinks his life is over until he gets a phone call from his ex lover Adrien Dupuis and begins to think about having a relationship he never thought he could have. Then he finds support from a woman in Adrien’s entourage and he wonders if this is the relationship he’s supposed to have. He is as confused as it gets. This is an amazing boxed set about deep relationships, hookups, depression, and relationships of all kinds.

In one sentence, this series is phenomenal.

I loved every story in this series. The characters are wonderfully written. Each story digs deep into a well of emotions that make everything real. My favorite books overall are Rewind and Return. I absolutely fell in love with the Noah character though, so his book was a fantastic way to round out the series.

This is definitely a must-read series, and the box set makes it easy to binge it. The only thing I was disappointed with was that the series was over too soon. I felt like I could have stayed immersed in the Rewind world for much, much longer.
