Review: Simmer by Stephanie Rose

Ashley's 4 Star Review - Good Reads Review Link

A passionate love story with so much raw emotions!  Ashley @White Hot Reads

My first book by Stephanie Rose but will not be my last.  Simmer is full of all emotions you can think that would be in a love story.  A single mom who was kicked out by her parents Sara’s always had to be the strong one and do what she needed to do to provide for her daughter Victoria.  Drew is the graduate student who runs into the girl he falls in love with.  The relationships all throughout this book can be related to.  Loved seeing this love story transform both Sara and Drew to the point of happily ever after.

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 too 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 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.
