War Poppy by Stevie J. Cole & LP Lovell Release Blitz

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.

United Indie Book Blog Review
Reviewer: Heidi
Rating: 5 Stars
The prologue transports you right to where all the action is and you can smell and feel death . You can feel the pain , the fear and the anguish ....

Just as you gather yourself BAM !!!! Chapter  1 reaches into your chest cavity and merciless  rips your heart out !!!

I must just say " Thank you " to Hope , Poppy's  friend ,  I think she'd be lost without her ❤🏡

This sentence  captures my feelings  about loss " When you lose someone you love ,someone that is part of your life - everything changes".  These words have taken how I feel and vocalised it to a degree .....THANK YOU ! ❤


Brandon and Connor were brothers from other mothers πŸ˜‚ when Connor becomes a casualty of war ,  his world comes to a grinding halt and he's plunged into a dark and dreary world , one where sadness and darkness will consume you. Brandon is a walking ,  living time bomb and my heart aches for him ....

Poppy , Brandon and Connor grew up together and Brandon always felt Connor was a better choice for Poppy. 

Poppy and Connor get married and she's left as  a young widow. Brandom is all she has left and she's determined to get him out that deep dark hole ....

People deal with death and pain differently and PTSD  is not " all in the head" ,  it's very real and very scary for those going through it and those having  to watch a loved one go through it πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

My heart just shattered  for Connor as well as Poppy and I'm just grateful for the impact Poppy got to have on Connor . My heart will mourn for quite some time ,  his pain was quite real to me .


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!
