Blog Tour: War Poppy - Nicole Lynne


War Poppy by Nicole Lynne is LIVE!




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.



This is probably going to be one of the hardest reviews for me to actually quantify into words.  War Poppy captured me and captivated me right from the start.  It left me breathless and gasping.  It was heart-rending, painful and extremely emotional.  This is my first book from these authors and holy cow, what an introduction.  They completely wrecked me.

War devastates.  This is fact.  And when it tears a loved one from you, the wreckage it leaves behind can be a destructive force.  Childhood friends, Poppy and Brandon, are faced with this destruction.  Neither of them are the same people they were before.  This is an honest look at love in the aftermath of war.  It’s not everyone’s story or experience but it certainly is some peoples’.  I don’t want to go into too much depth about the story.  This is a book that truly needs to be read and experienced without any spoilers. 

This whole book is stunning—the writing, the character development, everything.  I was completely blown away.  It is a story and book that will haunt me for a long time; it’s going to sit in my heart and mind.  I’ll stew on it.   And that makes this one of my top reads of all time.  I don’t know if I could ever handle re-reading this.  But I do know I’ll never forget it.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

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!
