WAR POPPY by Stevie J. Cole & LP Lovell writing as Nicole Lynne


War Poppy by Nicole Lynne is LIVE!



PoppyLove 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.


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My heart is freaking BROKEN!! How the heck am I supposed to move on after this??? I fell in love with Brandon and Poppy. Absolutely in love with their story. I felt everything with them. The lost opportunity. The second chance. Their loss, their grief, their love. And I was so freaking happy that they had each other. I was brutalized by the horror show that was Brandon's mind. I cannot even fathom what it is like to live with PTSD after a war tour. I can't wrap my brain around it but I can definitely empathize with those who suffer from it. Even though I eventually saw where this story was heading, I put my head firmly in the sand and continued to read in denial. You see, I still had hope. Sadly, my hope was obliterated. I guess that's what makes this book so real. So good. War is no joke. There is nothing funny about the men and women who sacrifice their lives for the freedoms that we take for granted. Unfortunately, the war isn't truly over for many of the soldiers that survive. As beautiful as this story was, my heart HURTS!!

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!
