Leandro POV

My eyes move to the magazines on the table. A sports mag is peeking out from under the fashion mags. Leaning forward, I pull it out, instantly wishing I hadn’t.
On the cover of the magazine is a picture of me with the caption, What the Bad Side of Formula 1 Looks Like.
So, now, I’m the bad side of Formula 1. Good to know.
I already know what the media say about me. How I’ve turned from a great racer into a drunk and a whore.

Revived is book 2 in the Revved series, but can be read as a standalone. In Revved, we meet Brazilian Formula One driver, Leandro Silva. Leandro is slick, he’s talented, and he’s on the top of his game. Until one terrible accident changes everything for him. He’s healing physically, but his mind isn’t in the right place. He’s having trouble coping with his near death experience. He’s having trouble coping with the fact that he’s not a racer anymore, and he can’t be again. Not unt

India and Leandro .. ♥

The way I feel about her ...
it is not like anything I have ever known.
It is all consuming -- the unrelenting need
to be with her, make her mine,
brand myself into her skin
because she sure as hell is
branded into mine.

"I did alright." I give a lazy shrug.

When I met Leandro Silva in Revved he wasn't my favorite character, but I won't lie and say I wasn't intrigued. There was a HUGE part of me that couldn't wait to meet the bad boy of Formula One racing.

I am less than half the man I used to be. A pacified version of myself, who can’t even climb into a regular car, let alone my race care. I can’t drive. And without that, I am nothing.

If you read Revved, you know that Leandro was in a horrible accident and barely survived. And he's still not "surviving" very well, in fact, he's having PTSD. His racing sponsors are forcing him to get back on the track and his only recourse is to get therapy. That's where India comes in.

India (along with her twin brother, Kit) were abandoned as babies and moved from group home to group home. Never feeling loved, she ate up the attention of an older man at her group home. However, here trust wa

I fuckin LOVED it!!!

Revived is a second book in the REVVED series and I LOVED it as much as I have loved book 1, if not just a little bit more. This is a story of Leandro Silva a car racer that we are introduced in book 1 and we found out what happened to him at the very end of it. So this book is a continuation of his story of recovery, healing and finding fulfillment on more levels than just the basic one.

Leandro Silva was at the top of his game in Formula 1 racing. But when a bad accident puts him in the hospital where he dies before being resuscitated he's not sure if he'll ever race again. He's physically healed but can't even drive a regular car without having a panic attack. Taking the advice of his friend, Andi, he goes to see a therapist.

Revived gets pole position from me as I loved everything about the story it has romance, suspense and laughs. This is Leandro Silva’s story we met him briefly in Revved. The prologue begins with Leandro’s accident that destroys his life for a time.

A year later and Leandro is physically ready to race again but mentally he cannot get into a car without reliving the accident, he's been hiding in alcohol and sex with random women until Carrick Ryan suggests Dt Harris a therapist that might be able t

So maybe its a me thing. But this was ok. I really didn't care for Leandro Silva in Revved so his trauma and tale was just meh for me. I loved the heat and the good doc, India!

If you want a quick, insta-lust that is really an insta-love, game on. I for one didn't care for the fast emotions. So, there is scorching heat and sexy racing...a heart stealing pre-teen...some past trauma bubbling out of the closet...that is Revived

I can’t help but get excited about Samantha Towle’s books – I love her characters, the humor, the sex…the result is a combination that just works for me. Plus after meeting Leandro in Revved, I was very ready to see what this Brazilian stud had to offer. While I did enjoy Revived overall, I was slightly frustrated that it didn’t meet the expectations that I was hoping for.

I loved the first instalment in the "Revved Series" by Samantha Towle and when I found out the lovely lady would be taking us back to the world of formula One by giving us Leandro's story, I was beyond excited.

I love Samantha Towle books and couldn't want to read Leandro's story after meeting him in Revved.

Towards the end of Revved, we learn that Leandro suffers a horrible accident while racing that puts him out of commission for many months.

Revived is Leandro's story and allows the reader to meet the man that once was on top, at the height of his game in racing, to now showing vulnerability in need of therapy to overcome his fears of ever racing again. You see Leandro is a shell of who he on

We met the sexy Brazilian Formula One driver, Leandro Silva briefly in Revved. We knew he was in a horrible race car accident but we didn't get to see was how that affected him. He's unable to compete in future races due to his fear of driving, which is totally understandable so it's brought to his attention for him to see a therapist Dr. India Harris. There's instant attraction for both but while Leandro would like to start a relationship with India, India is unable to reciprocate(publicly, emo ...more

Where do I even start? Another fantastic story from Samantha Towle!
I loved every single minute of this book. It was sweet, light, fun, super sexy and heartfelt, all at once...

I really liked Leandro in 'Driven', but seeing him so low at the start of this story just made me fall in love with him completely.

Leandro and India's story sure made my day!

I can describe this story as "inevitable". Their attraction towards one another is undeniable from the start, so it was just a matter of time. What I like about this is how they developed into a couple. There were a few bumps, but they powered through. I really, really like India's boy. One of the best son-character in my fiction world. Cool as hell boy! :)

I'm happy for their happy ending. A good read indeed. :)

Meh, it was okay. I didn't really like either of the characters that much.

I love reading a story where the male lead character is a self centered player who gets completely knocked to his knees by a woman. You know the guys I'm talking about, they like to play hard and have women dropping their panties without trying. The word commitment is not in their vocabulary. This pretty much sums up Leandro Silva.

Leandro is so messed up. He is a well known Formula 1 racer, recovering from an accident that could have killed him. If he wants to get back on the track he needs to

Such an entertaining read. Samantha towle knows how do angst and she does it well. She is so a master in the art of sexual tension. Much like "Revved", this book was well-stocked with both.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the story, but was often frustrated with India always pushing them apart. Her reasons were explained as the story unravels, but they still seem somehow unjustifiable. It's Leandro freaking Silva! You're a smart woman, India, so figure something out. Once they did get toget
Samatha Towle has done it again. Brilliant, enjoyable read. I feel so much lighter after reading it.
