Publisher's Summary

Perfection. One word. Three syllables. Every reason why I'll never have the one thing I truly want. I stand dutifully on the pedestal he's built, waiting for the day he truly sees me. Then one amazing night, he lets down his walls, only to leave me the next day.

Years have passed, and I've tried to move on with my life. But I still dream of him. I still miss him everyday. The memories haunt me. How can I look to the future when my past remains a mystery? The time has come to find the boy who stole my heart and ran away without a word.

But not everyone who is lost wants to be found. My name is Alexandra Fontaine, and this is my story of unfinished love.

Wings Over Poppies is book two in the Over series and can be heard as a standalone novel.

Warning: This is a new adult romance. It is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

You Are My Gift

I am a huge fan of this series and it just keeps getting better and better! Although this is book 2 in the interconnected Over series, it can be read/listened to as a stand alone. I do recommend the previous book, however, because it's awesome and you are introduced to characters that appear in both books.

Devra Woodward and CJ Mission were amazing as Alex and West. Their voices complemented each other and worked well together in this dual narration. Devra's performance was especially incredible! She was the perfect Alex and her narration was so emotional and heartfelt.

Alex and West really put my heart through the ringer! It killed me to see them struggle and fight what was in their hearts. Their connection was so honest and beautiful and was told perfectly in the chapters from the past. To know that it crumbled and continued to deteriorate in the present really ripped my heart out of my chest. I loved that both Alex and West grew through the course of this book. They are not perfect people and mistakes are made, but by recognizing and accepting those mistakes they are finally able to move forward. This book will definitely send you on an emotional journey, but that only makes the destination so much sweeter. You really don't want to miss this incredible second chance romance!

Mesmerizing Poignant and Moving Romance!

I absolutely loved everything about this forbidden/second chance romance! Alexandra lived a privileged life but followed her dreams despite her parents plans for her. Her dreams included her first love from the other side of the tracks. West worked hard to make a better life for himself and his family. But life had other plans for him. Now years later, Alexandra is still pining for the missing love of her life. When they finally meet after years of no contact, the loving young man is now a tortured, brooding man who wants nothing to do with her. This story is beautifully told in past and present sequence, eloquently revealing a story of epic love and what it takes to fight for that second chance. Alex was so strong and courageous, I really loved her, and how hard she was willing to fight for West. I also loved catching up with all the friends and family that we met in the first book as well. They are fun and supportive and still essential in each others lives.
Both Narrators, Devra Woodward, and C.J. Mission were superb in bringing this story to life. Their intonations, and voice changes were eloquent and fluid making me feel every emotion from joy to heartbreak, laughter to love, and everything in between.
I was totally mesmerized by this poignant and moving romance. It stayed with me long after I was finished. I highly recommend this book/series!

Story brought to life

I read this book back in 2015 when it was first released and I enjoyed it with its ups and downs. I did like how most of the book was told from Alex’s POV, and also several chapters from West’s POV. so I really felt I could understand his mindset so much more. I did miss the amount of interaction with the secondary characters that were present in the first book in the series. I guess because of the issues being dealt with I didn’t find myself laughing as much. I also felt like the “gang” wasn’t involved as much, but that is because parts of this story takes place before there was a “gang”. There are peeks into stuff going on with these secondary characters which I love and even hints of what is to come in the next book Storms Over Secrets.
hen I heard this book was coming out on audible I couldn’t wait to be able to listen to it. The narrator's Devra Woodward and CJ Mission did a fabulous job of bringing this already 5 star review book to life making it so much more than a 5 star listen. I didn’t want to stop listening and would find myself trying to figure out ways to get extra listening time in. These narrators have so much emotion in their voices you can really "see" what they are telling. I haven’t listened to anything by them before but will gladly listen to them again. It was as if I was hearing this story for the first time.

Ex-Military getting a second chance at life

My lord... I am in love with J.A. DeRouen's writing. Wings Over Poppies simply took me away.
Ex-military? Check.
Young adulthood friends? Check.
Second chance at love? CHECK.
Tortured, brooding souls warming up over time? DING DING DING!!!!
My jackpot has been hit.. and it's this freaking book. Every action has meaning, every word the characters utter is painstakingly through through.. Miss DeRouen is a master wordsmith, in my opinion.

Alex and West have been friends in childhood.. nevermind that he is older, and friend with her brother.. Sharing their thoughts, their time and passion for golf.. they get to know each other better.. but he has to leave for the military. Only, the man who returns is not the man that left.
Their fight is a long one, and by far not an easy one.. but it never ever feels like drama for drama's sake. It's thought out, and believable. Absolutely amazing. Writing, characters, story. I cannot WAIT for more of this group of people.

And the audio.. oh my, the audio! Devra Woodward as Alex, and especially her mother?? Lord almighty, absolute perfection!!!! The narrators kicked it out of the park... and brought this story to life, giving it warmth, richness and utter love, palpable through their intonation of Ms. DeRouen's words. Fantastic!!!

True love waits...

Beautiful continuation into the over series. This very well could be read without having to read Hope Over Fear. I loved getting to know Alex a bit more and learning her story. The depiction of what Soldiers go through after war was heartening. Beginning to end had me eager for more. Beautifully written and Beautifully narrated!

Can my heart take anymore!

I thought Hope Over Fear was great, and then came Wings Over Poppies. It was AMAZING!! J.A. DeRouen has done it again. This book was sassy, fun, and then the heartbreak hit. I felt bad for both Alex and also for West. He had to endure so much. She tried to move on but the heart wants what the heart wants. Luckily this book ends with happy hearts! Both narrators did an amazing job. I felt the emotions coming out in their voices. I cannot wait to listen to book 3!!!
