War Poppy by Nicole Lynne is LIVE! See My Review


War Poppy by Nicole Lynne is LIVE!



Poppy Love and war. Two words that should have little association, but to me the two go hand in hand. Both are a tragedy. They rip you open and spit you out. The war killed my husband, Connor, shattered my will to live, and took my best friend. Brandon may not have physically died in that war, but his soul did. And now we're left to pick up the wreckage. Expected to move on when all that is left is the ruins of a life we once had. Brandon War. It took everything from me, even myself. When you're only able to exist, death seems like a blessing. Pain...a welcome distraction. I ran from everything associated with my past, and then she found me, fighting, drowning myself in whisky, trying to forget. She reminds me of Connor, of what I've lost—what we've lost. In the midst of destruction, she's a salvation I don't deserve. I shouldn't love him. I shouldn't love her. Love is a war we never should have fought. war-poppy-teaser-1


I know I've said it before in reviews before where the book will break your heart and will make you cry. This one did more than just break my heart, it hurt me down to my soul. I didn't cry until the end of the book and then I was a bit of a mess. The authors give you such a real look at PTSD and what it does to the soldier and their families. If you didn't know what it was like for them before, you definitely will get a better look at it through this book.

This book isn't a light read for sure. I'll warn you now if you don't like dark, this book isn't for you. After reading this one, I'm going to need something light to read when I pick up another book.

Brandon, Poppy and Connor always had each other growing up, they've been friends forever. You get to see how their friendship is from the very beginning and how it grew into more through the years. They only have each other and sometimes fighting the demons seem easier when you're with the one that you love. When you try to be what the other needs but you can't be everything to them, when you're not everything to yourself first.

This book has every emotion and then a little bit more in it. I just can't wrap my head around what to write in this review without giving a spoiler. I hope you're ready for this one and enjoy.


Book 2, War Hope is releasing May 2, 2017

Stevie J. Cole
Stevie J. Cole lives deep in the woods of Alabama with her husband and two precious daughters. She studied Epidemiology concentrating on cancer research but has always had a passion for writing. Some of her stories will strip you bare, some will give you nightmares, but the one thing she can promise is that she will always give you stories that make you feel. Raw. Gritty. Love. Because sometimes characters need to be flawed.P.S. Stevie's greatest fear is the impending zombie apocalypse. Think about it: swarming armies of decaying, oozing corpses stumbling around with clicking teeth, trying to eat your face. Nothing about that is good. NOTHING!
