Release Date: 27 October, 2019

Page Count: 298 pages

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


To Patrick Lefèvre, nothing matters besides his family, his friends, and sex. He isn’t cut out for relationships, and everyone knows it.

Since his divorce, Brandon Lewis has had a lot going on. There’s no time for hookups or one-night stands. Not until he meets Patrick—a man as elusive as he is gorgeous.

Little does Brandon know that the man he just slept with is his new therapist. And his appointment is tomorrow.

Can Patrick and Brandon deny their deep attraction and develop a normal client/therapist relationship?
Can they limit themselves to hooking up once—or should they give their passion one more chance?

After all, what harm could come from one more night together?

REVIVE is a Bisexual Romance taking place in France and the USA. Though part of a series, it is a standalone story without a cliffhanger.

CW: Some biphobia. Please read the author’s note before starting the story.



I’ve been waiting for Patrick’s book since I read Rewind and this doesn’t disappoint in the least. Patrick and Brandon are amazing together. I love their dynamic and Patrick is so whipped! All I could think while reading the book was, don’t hurt Patrick. (So Patrick might be my favourite 😉)

While this book is dual POV, we get Patrick’s POV a tad more. Also this takes place in the same time frame as Rewind. I love this series but this book is my favourite. I loved the banter between Patrick, Enzo and Jean-François.

Wei, Brandon’s daughter, is another one of my favourite characters. (She kept reminding me of Wei Wuxian, probably because I’m addicted to The Untamed). I loved her.

Please do heed the warnings as this book deals with biphobia. I highly recommend this book. Happy reading!
