Rebound by Rowan Shaw a feisty four-star read. This is number four in the Rewind series and it can be read a stand-alone, but I have read it as a series and enjoyed it as so, if you don’t want to read the whole series then it is advised that you read Return first as you may miss important details if you don’t. This is an interesting and challenging story and Noah has a journey to go on through this story and what a story it is, this is an emotional, gripping story and one you need to read.

So far, Noah's life hasn't been perfect and satisfying in every respect, but he hasn't complained about it because he's had the man he's loved at his side. However, the long-term relationship fell apart in the blink of an eye when his partner broke the rules they established and shattered Noah's heart to pieces. Now, the man must put his life back together. But will he be able to be himself and find the happiness he desires so much?

This book was my first that discusses polyamory so keep that in mind with this review. • I appreciated that there was an educational learning curve for readers that may not understand the full extent of this such as myself although I can see for someone who doesn't need this education to think it is not important i appreciated it being there. • I also liked that it showed the feeling the main characters are going through most from the second book to this one from all different perspectives altho ...more

I always know, and love, that with a Rowan Shaw book I am going to get some taboo subjects with some steamy reading to accompany it. I wasn’t disappointed with REBOUND, the 4th book in the REWIND series from her. Like I usually do, this book should and does, have a content warning because it will make you explore concepts and ideals around love that are a bit outside the typical or what most consider typical love stories. I love how Rowan Shaw can do this with a finesse that will blow your socks ...more

REBOUND (Rewind Book 4)
By Rowan Shaw
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the story REBOUND (Rewind Book 4) by Rowan Shaw. It is a book that pulls you in from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the final page. I loved reading about the character of Noah and Adrien. Noah believes that he has a wonderful life. His videos on a website are popular and he has a relationship with his boyfriend Hugo. His world changes when he is dumped by Hugo. Adrien is Noah’s best friend and ex-lover. He is the one

Rebound is the fourth book in the Rewind Series by Rowan Shaw. It is, in my opinion, the ‘spiciest’ of the series so far. It could be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading the rest of the series – or at the very least diving into “Return” (Book #2) before starting on this one- as a lot of character introductions and backstory is contained there.
As I mentioned, this book is a little different than the rest of the series, as this has a polyamorous/ bisexual romance- with bot

A great read about breakups. Nosh thought he had it all. But when he finds his boyfriend Hugo cheating on him with an actor, his whole world is turned upside down. He turns to his friend Adrien and stays at his house for a while. Can he get over Hugo and move on?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Noah standing up for himself but emotive underneath or Hugo as cold and manipulative. Great cast of supporting characters like the fun friend Nour or

Rebound was a great 5 star read and book four in the Rewind series.
I was excited to get the next book in the series, Rowan has once again pulled me right in with her writing.

Noah was shocked when his boyfriend Hugo broke up with him. They had 10 great years together, so Noah thought. Trying to move forward he turns to Adrien, his best friend. He meets a woman that Adrien knows and starts a very hot and steamy relationship with her.

Can Noah find happiness with her?

Overall I really enjoyed this

I have read a few books from this author and she continues to blow my mind. I have grown to love this series. This is the fourth book of the Rewind series. This book can be read as a stand-alone but there are previous characters in this story as well. I was so excited when I got this book I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. You can’t help but fall in love with these characters. I could not put this book down so I read it in only one day.

Rebound is the 4th book in the excellent Rewind Series by Rowan Shaw. Each of the 4 books in this series are considered to be standalones but the author does suggest that you read the 2nd book, Return before reading this one as Adrien and Raphael from that book play a major role in this book too.
Rebound is a Polyamorous Bisexual Romance set entirely in France. It contains several sexual encounters, including MM and MF. It also includes some very hot encounters between 3 men and another which in

So this is Noah’s story of heartbreak, lust and love. When this started I didn’t feel it was one of the better stories in the series. It seemed mostly sexual and not much story. I get that Noah sexual and not afraid to show it. It just seemed like the focus was on that part of him. Not the side that wants love as well or the worry he won’t find a partner who accepts all of him. That being said In the ending it really came around. I loved the last chapter! I am so happy for Adrien and Raphaël. A ...more

Rebound is the fourth book in the Rewind series. Even though you can pick up on what is going on in this book pretty easily, I’d recommend reading the previous books in order to get a better feel for all of the characters.

I absolutely loved every one of the Rewind books. I’ve been waiting for Noah’s story since he was first mentioned in the series. Rebound has a bit of a different feel than the previous three books, but it was still excellent. I enjoyed the polyamorous aspect of the characters.

Oh Rowan Shaw! Her writing is off the charts, and I have yet to read any book by her I don’t like or can’t get in to. Noah’s story is everything I hoped it would be and more. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Noah being with a female after such a long relationship with his previous boyfriend because I was already in love with all the gay characters and their relationships.

Rebound by Rowan Shaw is the fourth book in the Rewind series. This book can be read as a stand-alone however personally I would read them in order to get the full experience.
As with the rest of this series what was so good about this book was how engaging and relatable the characters are. Even if they are going through things you haven’t been it was so easy to envisage their journey, their struggles.
I really loved Noah. He is one of those characters I just connected with instantly. And how the

Rebound is the fourth book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw. This can be a stand alone story, but the author does recommend to read Return first for a better understanding for this story. Shaw does an amazing job setting the story up with his multi-level characters and his plot line. Rebound is Noah’s story. Noah’s life is going along perfectly but that is coming to an end. His relationship with Hugo is over. He is crushed and he contacts his best friend and ex Adrien to help him recover. Noah ...more

As each read that Rowan Shaw creates she takes you on an emotional journey that flows effortlessly from chapter to chapter, she has an amazing way with words that connects you to not only the story but the characters.

This story can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest reading this series from the beginning to help enhance your enjoyment and background of the characters.

REBOUND (Rewind Book 4) by Rowan Shaw is a quick read that is like the others an emotional read. Rowan touches on subjects that many think of as taboo, but she does so beautifully. She puts her heart and soul into each one of her stories and it shows through her word smithing and world building. I like the characters in this story and the fact it is a little different from the others.

Rebound by Rowan Shaw is the fourth book in the Rewind series. This can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the series or at least the second book Return first. 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 ...more

Rebound is the fourth book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw. Even thou Rebound can be read as a standalone, I would highly suggest reading every book due to the interconnected characters. This story might be my favorite not only for the hot and oh so steamy bedroom scenes but for the exploring of these relationships.

Rowan Shaw is becoming a go-to author for me in the LGBTQ romance community. I know the subject of Polyamorous Bisexual Romance is either a hit or miss with some readers, but this

I'm weak if it comes to Rowan Shaw, because I just can't say no to her books.

I read 99% m/m books, but if it's her, I don't care what I'm reading about. Bring it on all the couples with different races and sexuality. And this is the best thing I love in Rowan Shaw's books. She writes about everyone from the colors of the rainbow. And I just love all of her characters and stories.

Noah is my top weakness. I fell in love with him back in Return, and I just couldn't wait to finally read his story.

This is was a great read. It took me on an emotional journey. This book was so well written and I found myself completely enthralled by the story.

It is organized and easy to visualize. The cover work is also attractive and eye catching. I have been following this series for some time and I like how the author makes the books easy to be read as a standalone. Definitely worth the read.
