Simmer

Title: Simmer

Author: Stephanie Rose

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 16, 2018

 





Blurb

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.

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
It’s 2143. In the aftermath of wars, plagues and environmental breakdown, there’s growing hope. Thanks to extensive brain implants, space cadet Dom enjoys a perfect memory. He and girlfriend Astra practice telepathy and attain new heights.
Lucas, Dom’s benefactor and parent clone, is a diseased convict now returned from Martian exile. Dom’s brain implants offer Lucas the chance for a life-saving mind merger, and he intends to make that happen.
Praise for Return of the Convict:
“a crackling, well-told story…exciting, thought-provoking.”–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The novel is in turn thrilling and thought-provoking, and has the makings of a powerful sci-fi franchise.”–Foreword Reviews (Clarion Review, 5 stars)
 
“captivating, relentlessly paced…this novel should more than satisfy anyone who enjoys cerebral sci-fi.”–Blueink Review (starred review)
 
Excerpt
Dec. 16, 2143
There were forty-five of us transports crammed into the space bus, and even though everyone was sedated, the two and a half day trip was arduous.
              After we docked there was a slight shaking. Our capsule shot backward, and stopped. With a hissing of air, the door slid open. “Welcome to Mir,” a man’s voice said. “Everybody out.”
              The artificial gravity here was less than the moon’s; I got up without much difficulty. Two uniformed guards checked us off as we came out. “You’re Dominic Tessier,” one said crisply, when she touched my ID tag with a scanner.
                My legs uncertain, I stepped onto a moving sidewalk that took us through a tunnel. In a few minutes the passageway curved, and the main terminus area of the space station came into view. I held tight to the railing and stared. The people here arrived and departed from all over the solar system: personnel from the space ships, businessmen, and new-world workers. Some, while roughly dressed, had a special swagger. I thought they might be prospectors. Then a group of T-men walked through in unisex suits and skull caps. Although silent, their expressions and gestures showed communication. Thanks to their brain implants, they were telepathic.
                Only a few months earlier, I’d been a student at the Space Training Academy. My brain was being transformed through implants, and I looked forward myself, to a career in space as a T-man administrator. An awful injustice had been done to me, and my dreams were trashed. Yet I felt no regret, resentment, or any emotion at all. A silver bracelet around my wrist created a chemically-induced docility, more powerful than chains.
                Our guards took us along a walkway above a large, brightly lit loading dock. Through the side-mesh I could see the Stellar Blossom. The ship’s blue hull seemed to stretch on forever; it dwarfed the men gathered to service her.
                Ahead was a short, balding man I remembered from my time in jail. “Phil,” I called, catching up to him.
                He turned to me without surprise. “Hello, Dom,” he said in the slow speech of the bracelet wearers. He pointed up the dock to a line of people entering the ship under a bright yellow canopy. “Did you notice? Some are women.”
                “Passengers,” I said. “A different world.”

Review

Genuine, that is the main thought I got from this novel. The feelings and events all felt like something real. I loved the way the story unfolded, how it wasn’t super simple and predictable, there were tests for the characters in their relationships and within themselves. Sweet, Sad, Funny, Fun… quite a bit of emotions and moments.
