War Poppy

Title: War Poppy
Series: War #1
Author: Stevie J. Cole & LP Lovell
writing as Nicole Lynne
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 6, 2017



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.


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.

"Brandon O'Kieffe was my first crush, my first kiss, and the first boy to ever break my heart..."

This book! Gah, I seriously don't have enough words in my vocabulary to even describe how much this book killed my soul. L.P Lovell and Stevie J. Cole are evil authors for doing this to me, but I will never get enough of their writing. 

War Poppy is the story of what happens when your whole life shatters around you and you're left standing in the ruin. Brandon lost his best friend, Connor, in war and he also lost pieces of himself. So he leaves, goes AWOL and tries to exist in a world he doesn't understand anymore. Until Poppy, his other best friend and Connor's widow hunts him down and tries to bring him back to her.
"So, here we are, looking after each other."

These characters were so seductively broken I just couldn't stop reading, and their story will have you gripping the sides of your Kindle in anticipation of whats going to happen between them. Brandon and Poppy had their worlds destroyed by war and heartbreak, and seeing that had me bawling my eyes out more than once. These authors created the characters so wonderfully that you can't help but feel every single thing they do and it just about killed me. 

I don't want to say much about the story because this is definitely a book you should go into mostly blind. But just know that you will not come out of this okay, you will be heartbroken but reading this story will be worth it. Trust me on that. 

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!
