Claiming Poppy (A Billionaire, Friends to Lovers, Second Chance, Curvy Woman Instalove Romance) (The Claiming Series) by Violet Rae


For Richer, For Poorer?

Everyone thinks I have the perfect life, but they couldn’t be more wrong. I’ve sacrificed a lot to salvage the family business and I need a solution. Fast. When help comes in the shape of delectable financial consultant Poppy Parsons, I’m amazed to discover that the curvy beauty is the same woman who literally fell into my arms weeks ago. Her soft curves and emerald-green eyes tipped my world off its axis, but she was gone before I could even catch my breath, taking my heart with her. Now, fate has thrown her into my path once more, and this time I’m not letting her go until I’ve claimed her – body and soul.

When I’m assigned to help a client in financial crisis, I’m shocked to discover that Jensen Lockhart is none other than the gorgeous stranger I’ve been obsessing about for weeks. Jensen is handsome, funny… and sexy as hell. He says he wants me, that I’m his perfect woman, but I’ve been burned in love before and promised myself I’d never give a man that kind of power again. I’m here to save Jensen’s business, but he might just end up saving me.

Jensen knows Poppy is his ‘one’ and he’s determined to win her over in this sweet, steamy, safe instalove romance. There’s no other man/woman drama, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA, giving you everything you’ve come to expect from Violet Rae and The Claiming Series.

My Review 

Instalove at its finest. 

It’s a quick read and by the time you’ve finished it you’ll be smiling. 

Poppy is waiting for love to sweep her off her feet. Waiting for sex shouldn’t be an issue, but apparently her boyfriend thinks so. Catching him with a blonde in his bed ends their relationship. It didn’t seem to be going nowhere anyway….

Jensen is tired and frustrated. Running his fathers club is becoming a chore! He didn’t realise the extent of financial troubles the club was in. 

He wants the simpler times back….

Jensen and Poppy meet briefly only for a moment. And it stays with them both. But they probably will never meet again…

The second time has Jensen almost running her over again! 

Plucking up the courage to ask her out, Jensen takes the plunge. But a phone call has Poppy making another quick getaway….

Third time has Jensen seizing both his chance and Poppy! Kissing her like he’s dreamed of doing. She made an impression on him and he’s going go to act on it. 

But Poppy isn’t here for kisses, she’s here to work as a financial consultant for Jensen and the club. It wouldn’t be right to mix business with pleasure, would it? 

Poppy is just so cute, and Jensen is besotted with her. 

And it’s just a feel good story. 

No angst, no drama, just fate bringing two people together 💜


I am a fun-loving, young-at-heart, chocolate-loving, mother-of-two teenagers, with two fur-babies called Monty & Simba.

I am a published author with Inkitt and Galatea and have been writing since I was a young girl – poems, short stories, songs, and more recently, romance books with a hefty dollop of sexy goodness, and young adult books with a paranormal/sci-fi twist.

We all live busy, complicated lives, which is why there’s nothing like a good book to help you relax and transport you to another time, another place – even another world. There are so many adventures waiting for us between the pages of a book – I hope that my books take you to some of these places. 

If you like what I do, please get in touch and PLEASE leave a review – they are SO helpful for us authors.
