What do you do when the hand which held you becomes the touch you crave?

I’ve loved her for twenty years.

She’s a rare beauty luring with a dangerous high.

And I’m addicted.

I can’t get enough.

There is only one problem.
She is my father’s wife.
He’s an abusive asshole, destroying her down to the very root.

He won’t get another chance.

I’ll beat him to it.

And steal his precious drug—my princess—my Poppy.

    Kailee Reese Samuels never ceases to amaze me. Her books are brilliant and they keep you in the edge of your sit. Let me assured you that you’ll never be the same, because they change the way you see life.

    Poppy is a story of a seventeen year old girl that wants to get out from the abuse she endures by her mother.

    Poppy has two goals in mind, get her own place to live and get into college. She wants to become a better person, but she can’t while living under her mother’s roof.

    In the process of working hard to try and fulfill her dreams she meets Kane. She finds herself very much attracted to him, even though he is 20 years older than her.

    But like my mom always says not everything that shines is gold.

    Poppy decides to live a life of torture all in the name of love. Her love for Abel, Kane’s son.

    (“I married the man, fell in love with his son, and found the strength to fight for us both.”)

    This story is about the great lengths that you’ll go because of love and how much are you willing to sacrifice for it.

    (“This is about winning the game of life.”)

    This love story is a train wreck waiting to happen, and I can’t stop reading it. I know it’s going to break my heart but I really can’t stop reading it.

    (“Good things are what happens on the other side of bad.”)

    Let me assure you that you won’t regret reading Poppy.

    “There must be good things on the other side of bad.” 

    Kailee Samuels is still a rather new-to-me author, but each time I open one of her books I’m awestruck by her talent. In Poppy she delves into the psyche of Poppy, a young woman who dreams of leaving her life of abuse under her mom’s roof. Working as a waitress when she isn’t studying, she meets Kane during one of her shifts. 20 years her senior, he charms and seduces her and in no time, brings her to his home, where she meets his 4 years old son, Abel. Poppy’s life will then be changed forever. Or… will it?

    “If you take nothing else away from this, take yourself.” 

    Poppy is a read that deals with the extremely difficult topic of domestic violence. It is definitely not your typical love story, but rather a story about love and selflessness. Utterly unconventional, highly emotional and incredibly dark, it’s an experience I’m not going to forget anytime soon. 

    I don’t know how many times a heart can break but mine broke several times throughout the chapters. I found myself challenged (in a good way) by the level of realism of the story. Besides, the author gave life to characters who touched me and made me think a lot.  Poppy fought with with all her being, heart and soul, I couldn’t stop fearing for her life.  At such a young age, she shows an incredible maturity and a poignant determination to finally break the cycle of violence that surrounds her and Abel.

    I felt for Abel from the beginning. His courage and resilience know no limits. The beauty of his and Poppy’s bond brought out of me both tears of joy and sadness. 

    “You’ll get to the top. I promise you. Don’t ever give up.” 

    Hope and hopelessness, optimism and despair warred all along, in a devastating whirlwind. The brilliant plot and the huge twists and turns absorbed me. If you are familiar with Kailee Samuels’ work, then you know that there always is a bigger picture; Poppy is no different. When I eventually connected the dots, it was simply magnificent.


    If you haven’t experienced this author’s world yet, Poppy is the book you need, as it can be read as a complete standalone. Give it a try, grab a bottle of wine and a box of Kleenex, and…. enjoy!

    “I was no hero, Abel. I was only your temporary shield.”

    I’ve been emotionally drained and wrung out and pieced back together. I am utterly speechless. Be prepared to go on a journey of strength, determination, and unconditional love for another to make it through the hardest moments life could hand our Heroine. I can’t breathe after this book. So many times I held my breath, waiting for the next page. This Author always does a remarkable job at throwing the unexpected your way. You won’t be disappointed in reading Poppy.

    Wow! This book is simply phenomenal. This story is full of emotional angst and domestic violence; it is riveting, dark, and wicked with some steamy sex scenes that are off-the-chart hot! You NEED to READ! I wasn’t expecting the turn this story took; it has quite an unexpected revelation that may leave you flabbergasted but it is jaw-dropping good!

    The story will keep you on the edge of your seat to find out what happened next. Not all of its surprises are pleasant ones, but there is a certain satisfaction in experiencing a thread that is so obstinately unexpected. With a diabolical plot that has twists and turns—some you see coming, some you don’t that makes it interesting!

    Kailee Samuels have constructed a deliciously duplicitous dark romance that will lure you into the wee hours and beyond that you will not be able to put this book down. You won’t regret reading Poppy!
