War Poppy by 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.



Review by Victoria:

What happens when your best friend, the one who keeps you alive, dies? What happens if this is in the middle of a war torn country, miles and miles from home? What if you’ve seen things no one should see or do? This is where we find Brandon and Connor, best friends who enlisted together. Connor keeps Brandon going, and is as close to a brother either will ever know. And then Connor dies by an IED.

There’s a third to this friendship, Poppy, who is also Connor’s wife. Lost and alone, Poppy doesn’t know what to do without the boys. Brandon disappears, AWOL, a war criminal and it takes everything Poppy has to find him. But when two broken souls come together, can they fix each other or will they destroy each other?
This was such an amazing read.  Brandon comes back different, like so many of our soldiers and the stigma of PTSD follows him. Your heart will ache for them to survive, to live. You’ll cheer for the good days, you’ll cry on the bad days. But above all, you’ll love them. I couldn’t put this down and couldn’t have loved it more. A rare, honest and raw glimpse into the soldiers coming back and some of the problems and hardships they face even after war, this novel will hold your heart for days after you’ve finished.  5 Stars!
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!
