It’s my stop on the blog tour for a new dystopian romance, Poppy Bloom by Rebekah Dodson. I was first introduced to Rebekah when I reviewed Abby’s Promise back in July. I loved it, so when this one dropped into my inbox I knew I had to give it a go.
About Poppy Bloom
Vicki Morel believes she and Will, her gorgeous fiancé, have it all. They’re living the American dream. That is, until Portland, Oregon is leveled by a terrorist grade light weapon, and she loses Will at the airport.
Ambrose Palamo is an aviation student who wants one thing: to go home to Samoa. But when Portland is leveled, and he meets Vicki, he promises to help her find her fiancé instead. What he doesn’t expect is the feelings that start to form for her as they search the dangerous Oregon woodlands.
Sometimes love isn’t what you think it is.
The poppies bloom reminds them of what they’ve lost, while giving them the courage to face a brand-new future.
Poppy Bloom is the first in the Life After Us series.
I thoroughly enjoyed Poppy Bloom. I’ve said before that I’m always cautious of romance stories because there’s usually too much sex. Rebekah’s books are not the too much sex kind of books.
The story of Vicki and Ambrose left my heart feeling warm and fuzzy and the danger they face is spine chilling.
I would highly recommend Poppy Bloom to anyone who likes something a little different.
