Poppy by Savannah Stewart is the 3rd book in the Behind the Words series and although it is a stand alone, I would recommend reading ARIANNA and JAYDE first so you understand all the little details.
I have always liked Poppy. I thought she was the one girl in the group of friends that really knew what she wanted, and even though she loves her friends, was not scared to go after what she wanted. Poppy is a smart, determined, and a girly girl. Riley, and the feelings Poppy has for him is really her only distraction. But what is a great love story without a distraction?
Riley is a beautiful distraction, and I liked him from the very beginning. The attraction between Riley and Poppy is unbelievably hot. The one thing that is a consistent hurdle for Riley and Poppy is Alexis; I hated her. I just kept doing horrible things in my head to that woman, but it was fun to hate her. Poppy just cannot seem to deny the attraction she has for Riley, and it was at times heart breaking to watch her try.
Arianna, Brayden, Jayde, Nate and Cash make appearances, and it is nice to get Poppy and Riley’s point of views about the in and outs of what was going on in their stories. I loved having all the details filled in. I felt like it made all the questions that I had go away, and I felt complete.
POPPY is a character driven, well written, HEA with no cliff hangers. Past story lines combined with new details and childhood histories make the story complete. I would strongly recommend POPPY and the rest of the series.
POPPY by Savannah Stewart receives 4 out of 5 Platypires.
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
