Two exes wake up together with wedding bands on their fingers—and no idea how they got there. They have just one New Year’s Eve at the end of 1999 to figure it out in this big-hearted and nostalgic rom-com from New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch.
When college sweethearts Frankie and Ezra broke up before graduation, they vowed to never speak to each other again. Ten years later, on the eve of the new millennium, they find themselves back on their snowy, picturesque New England campus together for the first time for the wedding of mutual friends. Frankie’s on the rise as a music manager for the hottest bands of the late ’90s, and Ezra’s ready to propose to his girlfriend after the wedding. Everything is going to plan—they just have to avoid the chasm of emotions brought up when they inevitably come face to face.
But when they wake up in bed next to each other the following morning with Ezra’s grandmother’s diamond on Frankie’s finger, they have zero memory of how they got there—or about any of the events that transpired the night before. Now Frankie and Ezra have to put aside old grievances in order to figure out what happened, what didn’t happen...and to ask themselves the most troubling question of all: what if they both got it wrong the first time around?
I love a good enemies to lovers with the underlying mutual like and lust for each other but had a hard time finding it in this book. This just did not hit the mark for me but might for others. ~ Jami – Simply Love Books
The Rewind by Allison Winn Scotch is the story of college sweethearts Frankie and Ezra who broke-up right before graduation. Ten years later, they are back on campus after to attend the Y2K wedding of their college friends, April and Cooper. Frankie went to LA and became a music mogul and Ezra went to NY and became a successful lawyer. I had a hard time following the storyline as she went back and forth from the past to their now which made it difficult to finish.
They are two angry people who really did not want to be there. They meet up at the rehearsal dinner and then wake up together the next day with wedding bands on. I had flashbacks of the movie, Hangover. They go through the day trying to figure out what happened the night before they have to be at the evening wedding of their friends. It is a very angsty book. They spend most of the time being angry with each other or remembering their past together. I did enjoy most of the references to the 90’s but found it was a little over done. Also, I thought that there wasn’t really any sexual tension or even chemistry between these two characters, just anger and hate. I love a good enemies to lovers with the underlying mutual like and lust for each other but had a hard time finding it in this book. This just did not hit the mark for me but might for others.
