Poppy’s free spirit and crunchy ways leave her feeling like she’s in the wrong time at moments. A hippy at heart, she channels her simple ways into her career as a baker. When Poppy meets Matthew she thinks he’s cute and the chemistry flairs, but they are completely different people. A soldier, Matthew’s lifestyle and beliefs are fundamentally different than Poppy’s. Explosive together, their lust has the potential to burn bright, but flair out before love can come.
Overall Buttercream had some really interesting and engaging characters. Some of the supporting staff have moments that hit harder than the leading characters. Buttercream is definitely a hot story with a flair for making sweets even sweeter. Without giving any spoilers, I really don’t see these two living happily ever after though, and that left me not too thrilled with the ending. Readers looking for something sweet and sexy will really enjoy parts of this story.
