My father always told me there were three sides to every story. I never really understood that, not even years after losing him tragically on 9/11. While all my hopes faded to black after his death, the only light I had was that of my best friend, Nick. We were two people whose friendship blossomed into more in the face of shared pain and grief. That’s why I know he never understood why I had to walk away, why I would break his heart and never look back.
My father was undoubtedly one of the best men I would ever know, and I wanted to be just like him. He proudly served as Chief of the FDNY and died a hero on 9/11. Every day after that, I tried to become a man I knew he would be proud of. And I thrived having my best friend, Thea, by my side. But instead of staying with me and celebrating the happiest moment in my life, Thea walked away, splintering my heart in the process, never looking back to see if I would follow.
Years after parting, these once lovers are reunited in the most heated manner and must face their past, come to terms with each of their unspoken truths, and just maybe revive their once-cherished friendship…and understand why there are three sides to every story.

Revive by Mary A. Wasowski
Reviewed by Amy W.
Thea Falcone has carried more than her share of baggage after leaving her boyfriend behind so he could pursue his dream of becoming a fireman.
Tied to Nick Bartelli because of their shared past and the death of loved ones in the 9/11 tragedy, it seems unlikely that Thea and Nick will reunite.
However, author Mary A. Wasowski uses their shared memories as a catalyst to bring them together -- once and for all -- in Revive.
This was an interesting second chance story, but not in the sense I expected. The author managed to add some very unexpected twists and turns to the storyline, yet they were quite satisfying. The historical angle regarding the aftermath of 9/11 was skillfully developed, adding another interesting aspect to the story.
With the two characters grappling with a past that never seems to go away, I was torn about how I wanted things to end. In traditional romances, first love has a tendency to win. What happens when an author revisits a first love and frees the couple to move on? It creates an empowering story full of great feels.
