The Rewind

It’s the eve of the new millennium, and while most are ready to party like it’s 1999, exes Frankie and Ezra would rather say Y-2-nay to being reunited for the wedding of their college friends. Driven apart 10 years ago by ambition and apprehension, the pair find themselves awkwardly and inexplicably forced back together when they wake up in a stranger’s dorm room with wedding rings on their fingers and no memory of how they got there. Rather than a stroll down memory lane, the pair must retrace the steps of their drunk and disorderly stumble through the events of the evening. Scotch’s (Between Me and You) funny and flirtatious romantic comedy transports readers to the Y2K heyday. Narrators Julie Whelan and MacLeod Andrews are an engaging and delightful duo, amplifying the heart and humor of the character-driven narrative. Their playful performance will have listeners beguiled and believing in second chances.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners looking for a rom-com loaded with ’90s nostalgia and a heartwarming reunion with a Hangover twist. Recommended for fans of Emily Henry, Dylan Newton, and Amanda Aksel.
