REVIVE (Rewind Book 3) by Rowan Shaw. This author is quickly becoming one of my top reads for sure. These books can definitely be read as a stand-alone without any confusion but I do recommend them all. These two characters may have wiggled right into my “favorites characters “ position in this series. I was instantly hooked from page one and completely drawn into Brandon and Patrick’s story. Each one of them having their own hang ups and secrets. Both bring something unique to the already incredible storyline. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. Five stars for a book I won’t soon forget!
Revive by Rowan Shaw is the third book in the Rewind series.
I hated Patrick when I first met him. He was a pompous elitist and didn’t have patience or understanding for anyone who wasn’t like him.
Then I read his story and found out there is so much more to Patrick than what he showed us at the beginning and I ended up falling in love with him.
Oh, what can I say about Brandon? He is an overall amazing man, friend and father. He would do anything for someone who means something to him, and he shows us that several times. I wish everyone was as selfless as Brandon is.
Their story touched me in a way that I wasn’t expecting. It’s weird how someone with such a minor role can impact you and I had one in this story and all I wanted to do was give him a hug.
I enjoyed every moment of this story and look forward to the next book.
This book was everything I have been looking for in a good MM book. There was tragedy, loss, pain, but then there was the moment of being uplifted and healing!
This is one series I never hesitate to read! each book is unique and beautifully written to bury down in your heart!Th relationship ( however strained ) is fire! The connection will sizzle the pages and their journey to HEA is well worth the ride!
Love this book and series! It should be one everyones one click list!
Review by @listersda
Rowan Shaw has done it again with another incredible read to this series. In Revive we follow Patrick & Brandon story. They have a chemistry that is strong and unique that I loved watching develop. You get taken on a rollercoaster ride with this read, we face ups and downs and a storyline that its captivating, real and relatable.
Once again Rowan Shaw has created characters that are real, well developed and really stand-out, and leave you stopping and really thinking.
This author definitely has a way with words as I keep becoming more and more invested in her reads, each one becomes better than the one before and keeps me turning the pages. I cant wait to see what else this author can bring to this series, but ill be eagerly awaiting. I highly recommend this read and the others in the series!

Revive (Rewind Book 3) by Rowan Shaw
My rating 5 out of 5 stars
To say I’m obsessed and completely in love with Rowan Shaw books is an understatement. Both of the first 2 books in the Rewind series as well as this one have completely blown me away. I love the characters, the story line, the drama, everything. I really appreciate getting to see characters from the previous books appear in this book, it is nice to remember their stories while reading about Brandon and Patrick
Oh Brandon and Patrick, great couple. The way they both meet at a club and then the next day find out they are client and therapist is so dramatic, and I love it! I was wondering how it would work out between them due to this relationship but I was in for a nice little journey. Patrick having a phobia against bi people is actually pretty easy to understand when we find out what he went through in his life to warrant this disdain. Brandon seems like such a sweetheart and then when we get to see what his past was like, it’s easy to understand him as well. Both men you can tell are in love with each other but take their time explaining things and putting their love out in the open for each other. I was very nervous about how this was going to end with the little twist at the end but I had a feeling it was going to end well and I was not disappointed.
Rowan Shaw is an amazing MM writer and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in this series so far. I highly recommend these books and they can be read as stand alones but, I would recommend the full series because the characters overlap and its nice to have that background. Well done another fantastic book, I can’t wait to see what is in store next.
I have read a few books from this author and she always surprises me. This is the third book in the Rewind series. You don’t have to read them in order but there are previous characters in this story as well. I was so excited to read this book. When I got it I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. I could not put it down. It only took me a day to devour this incredible book.
Brandon has a lot that is going on in his life. Ever since he got divorced he doesn’t want to get into another relationship. He is a very busy man. Brandon is told to go to a club one night and that’s when he meets the gorgeous Patrick. Patrick is very busy also with his job and also his one night stands. Brandon is very intrigued by the beautiful man. He loses his mind and has a unforgettable night. Brandon’s ex tells him to see a very well know therapist and he is compete shock when he sees Patrick at the desk. He has never felt this way about anyone before but his past is coming back to haunt him. Will Brandon be able to let his guard down or will he build up more walls?
Revive by Rowan Shaw is the third book in the Rewind series. This can be read as a standalone and fully enjoyed, but the other books are good also. 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. I will be keeping an eye out for more books from Rowan Shaw in the future.
Revive by Rowan Shaw
Revive is the third book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw. This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend you read this series in order. 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.
My curiosities about Patrick are finally answered. Revive is an emotional one night stand turned doctor/patient romance with dealing with bisexuality. We all know the people who say they don’t do relationships are the ones who fall the hardest. Patrick and Brandon have smokin’ chemistry but at times the back and forth got a little too much. It was good to see characters from the previous books and meeting some new ones too.
I love how Rowan Shaw takes real situations in the LGBT world and adds them to her books. I have said this before but Rowan is quickly becoming a fave author of mine who writes M/M romances. So looking forward to Rebound.
Revive is the third book in the Rewind story by Rowan Shaw. The book is a M/M bisexual romance book wjth drama included. Shaw writes an all in story that grabs you from the beginning. The characters are believable and can be your next store neighbors. His complex writing style kept me engaged in the book at all times. This story is about Patrick and Brandon. There is one tiny problem for Brandon his just had sex with Patrick. It usually not a problem but Patrick turns out to be Brandon therapist. The rest is what they say is history. Will Patrick and Brandon able to break through the barriers that lie ahead for them? Can they be who they want to be or will society tell them who they are to be? Fine this out and more when you read this story.
