ARC received for an honest review
Poppy is the 3rd book in the Behind The Words series by Savannah Stewart, and though it could be read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading the other two books first.
I just gotta say, I love Poppy! She is a one of a kind lady, smart, successful and knows what she wants.
And what she wants is Riley. But she can't have him and it is killing her inside, a little each day. When she finally gets her chance with him, she blows it.
I could understand why she did what she did at the time - Riley was in the "off" in his on again off again relationship with Alexis. Gah, god I hated Alexis, she is a selfish cow that i just wanted to slap
Or did I want to slap that sense into Riley? The more I think about I wanted to beat the sense into Riley for keeping going back go her.
My heart broke over and over for Poppy as she tried to get over Riley. As much as she wanted him, and the attraction between them was off the charts, she tried everything to get over the man who held and shattered her heart. And I cheered for her with every attempt. And may have shed more than one tear with her.
We got lots of the whole gang from the previous two books. It had been a while since I had read Jayde so I had forgotten some of the things that happened with the Jayde/Nate/Cash/Sawyer dramas, so that got me right in the feels again as we saw it from Poppy and Riley's POV.
So, can Poppy and Riley get over all the obstacles in their way to find their HEA or is there just too much going against them?
For that you are going to have go read for yourself!
Ms Stewart has written a series with characters that you cannot help but love (or hate, depending on who they are!!). You get drawn into their world and feel like you are in the room with them as they go through their daily trials and tribulations. You will laugh, cry, scream and shout with them.
I look forward to what she has for us next.
