Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Revived by Samantha Towle

Happy Release Day to Samantha Towle and her new book REVIVED! This is Leandro's story! Read a sneak peek below and make sure to enter the giveaway! Good luck!

India Harris didn’t have the best start in life. Abandoned as a baby, she and her twin brother, Kit, spent their lives in foster care, only having each other to rely on. Then, at a young age, a relationship with the wrong man left India pregnant. Wanting to give her son the life she never had, she put herself through school and graduated with honors.

Now, at the age of thirty, she’s a highly respected therapist.

At the top of his game as a Formula One driver, Leandro Silva had everything—until an accident on the track left him staring death in the face. After enduring twelve months of physical therapy, Leandro is now physically able to race, but his mind is keeping him from the track. Frustrated and angry, Leandro’s days and nights are filled with limitless alcohol and faceless women.

Entering the last year of his contract, he knows he has to race again, or he’ll lose everything he spent his life working for. Forced into therapy to get his life back, Leandro finds himself in the office of Dr. India Harris.

Falling for his uptight therapist is not part of Leandro’s plan.

Having unethical feelings for her patient, the angry Brazilian race car driver, is not part of India’s plan.

But what if the wrong person is the only person who is right?


My eyes move to the magazines on the table. A sports mag is peeking out from under the fashion mags. Leaning forward, I pull it out, instantly wishing I hadn’t. 

On the cover of the magazine is a picture of me with the captionWhat the Bad Side of Formula 1 Looks Like. 


So, now, I’m the bad side of Formula 1. Good to know. 

I already know what the media say about me. How I’ve turned from a great racer into a drunk and a whore. 

They’re not wrong on the whore part. Well, whore is a bit harsh. I don’t charge for my services. And I wouldn’t say I’m a drunk. I just like to drink—a lot. 

I shouldn’t read the article. I know this, but the sadistic part of me has me turning those pages. 

Finding the article, eyes scanning the text, I pick out the usual shit. 
Why is Silva no longer racing? Physically, he’s healthy. Is it mental problems? Fear over racing because of his accident? Is that why he drinks—drowning his misery in alcohol? Such a shame to see a once great driver fall from grace so dramatically.
 Frustration and rage grip my chest like a vise. 

Fuck this. I don’t need this shit.

Even though I can’t race, it’s not like I actually need to. 

I don’t need to race. I just need to drink and fuck. That’s all I need now. All I will ever need.


I’m a liar and a chickenshit. And that’s why I’m sitting in the waiting room to see a therapist. 

Maybe I am beyond help. 

Tossing the magazine back onto the table, I get to my feet, ready to leave this place, just as the door opens, revealing the epitome of what I could really do with screwing right now. 

My eyes trail up the tanned, toned legs to the fitted pencil skirt that I would happily hitch up to see the magnificent pussy that I bet lies beneath. A pale-pink blouse is tucked into that skirt, covering what looks like a fantastically sized pair of tits. Silky blonde hair sits on her shoulders. Hair that I would enjoy getting my hands all tangled in while I fuck those bright red lips of hers, enjoying seeing that lipstick smeared all over my cock. 

My dick pulses in my jeans, more than ready to proposition her with the offer. 

“Mr. Silva.” She steps forward. “I’m Dr. Harris. But please call me India.” 

She’s Dr. Harris?

This hitch-your-skirt-up-and-let-me-fuck-you-right-now woman is my new therapist. 

Well, that’s just fucking great. It’s not like I can bang my therapist. 

I put my cock on hold and give her my best smile, the one that always has panties dropping to the floor, as I say, “And you can call me Leandro.”

5 smokin' hot stars! I absolutely loved this book! I didn't think I would love this one as much as I did Revved but hot damn Samantha did it again! I love sports books but I have a new found love of race car drivers after reading this series. This book is Leandro and India's story and holy hotness batman! You could most likely read this story as a standalone but I would highly suggest reading Revved first because you wanna meet Carrick and Andy, and you it will give you some insight as to what happened to Leandro that brought him where he is today. The romance and angst in this story were off the charts. I love Samntha Towle's writing style and how she can portray each characters point of view spot on. I am really hoping to see India's brother Kit get a story out of all this even though we get a glimpse into his future of what does come about it would be great to see how it all unfolded. I can't wait for more from this author and look forward to much more even if it is a completely different series.

Leandro is dealing with demons and India is dealing with demons of her own but together that just make sense. But with obstacles standing in there way life isn't going to be easy but can they make it work?

Go get this book now! I am not making a huge review here because I don't want to giveaway any spoilers you will have to pick up the book to see this fantastic tale unfold!


Revived by Samantha Towle is the story of sexy Leandro Silva, Formula 1 race car driver that the reader was introduced to in Revved. Having been in a serious accident at the end of Revved the reader wondered what happened with his career. This book was a 4.5 star read for me and I highly recommend that everyone race to one-click these books because I promise that you won't be disappointed!

Leandro Silva is struggling with getting back into his car after almost dying on the track where he has spent most of his life. At the suggestion of Andressa and Carrick, Leandro seeks the help of therapist India Harris to try and get past his reservations of getting in the car.

India Harris has dedicated her life to helping people after having a traumatic childhood. Living her life on the somewhat "safe" side with men, India struggles with the attraction that she feels toward her patient Leandro and does everything that she can to avoid him in a social setting no matter how being close to him makes her feel alive. After a chance run in on the metro while with her son, the fight to ignore the electric attraction between them begins to dwindle until it becomes almost non existent.

With her medical license on the line will India actually cross it in the name of what could be the great love of her life? Or will she choose to be safe and keep their relationship strictly doctor and patient? You will have to read this utterly amazing story to find out.
