Release Blitz + Review – Simmer by Stephanie Rose

Title: Simmer

Author: Stephanie Rose

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 16, 2018


Simmer (verb): to stew gently below or just at the boiling point; to be in a state of incipient development.

My life was always at a simmer…only stewing, never going anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I learned to go without.

I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn’t want anyone’s pity. I didn’t need it. Pity wouldn’t put food on the table or keep a roof over our heads. That was all me.

Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It demands hard work and sacrifice — with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I already know all to well, raising a daughter on my own.

Drew Kostas is everything I’ve ever wanted but couldn’t let myself have. He’s younger, gorgeous, charming — and relentless. He sees beyond the hardened shell I’ve built to protect myself, coaxing out a softer me I don’t recognize.

It doesn’t matter how much I melt in his presence when the heat between us threatens to boil over.

That’s the thing about heat. When it rises, everyone gets burned.

Especially when they’re foolish enough to fall in love.


My Review:
5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book! I’ll be honest, I didn’t really care for Sara’s character when we met her in Rewrite. I absolutely loved her in this book though and getting to find out more of her story. I was able to relate to her and was rooting on her to let her walls down so she could find love.

Drew was absolutely amazing. I love the friendship he developed with Sara and the way he treated her was totally swoon-worthy. He’s just an all around amazing, caring guy and was just the person that Sara needed in her life. <3 I think Drew and Sara are going to go down as my favorite characters by far from this author! I loved them both so much.
