Poppies For Christmas 

Stacy Keywell

Publication date: November 15th 2016

Genres: Romance, Young Adult
A celebration of love without labels. It’s easy to be brave with you by my side!
Popular DJ Dexx finds himself positively smitten by the precociously pristine Poppy Paris. Too bad she’s already taken by an older boy, Declan Davies, a beautiful model with a thriving career, and a perfect family. By a dreamful stroke of chance, Dexx finds himself invited to spend Christmas at the Davies home by a gorgeous girl, granting him the opportunity to pursue the precious Poppy. But in his quest to win her over, he unlocks a world of imperfection and insecurity, where people are picked on for their disabilities, speech, appearance, and eccentricities. For Poppy and her friends, love trumps labels, and everyone deserves a brave friend to stand by their side. What gifts will Dexx discover this Christmas? Will he ultimately find true love, or will he discover something even greater?
You are invited to read a powerful story about living with autism, but not letting it define you, about being bullied, but carrying on with determination and grit, and about having dreams, but not giving up in the face of adversity. Come celebrate something beautiful with Poppies for Christmas.

DISCLAIMER: I received an e-ARC of this book as part of this tour.

Who doesn't love a sweet Christmas story? Because that is precisely what this book is. It's the perfect amount of cute, cuddly, warm and fuzzy type of book that makes you want to curl up on a cold day with a blanket. Maybe even a cup of hot cocoa for good measure. This book has that 'Twelfth Night' kind of feel to it. This character likes this character, but that character doesn't notice them because they are interested in someone else, who is actually interested in some different, who is interested in the first character.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars.
I love Dexx and his character is easily lovable. I love how everything ties together in the end. How everything relates to what happens along the way. Love it.
