Addicted to You: Poems of Romance is a contradictory title and the explanation lies within Liv Kalay Hernandez’ very different book. The majority of the poems are written entirely in free style and Addicted to You is the accurate section of the title. This poetry demonstrates, in many different ways, sexual passion, desire, blatant lust, and sometimes gratification. What very few are about, in the literary sense of the word, is romance. The most powerful of these poems are written on the assumption that chemistry, rather than red roses, Valentine cards and diamond rings, is behind the majority of strong relationships, long lasting or not. The pure romance is at the very end.

Liv Kalay Hernandez takes no prisoners. Read Addicted to You: Poems of Romance if you dare; they will touch you at a deeper level than the heart, and call you back time and again to reread them. “My love for you, a vast and endless sea, as wide as the sky and long as the day…” is the shortest, and the most innocent, though a few, like Kiss Me, are gentle. Others are theatrical, as if the writer is searching for self-worth. My favourite, sadly, has no title, but you can find it on page eleven. My second favourite, because it conjures up pictures of fun, is Hey Handsome. Do I have a wish, other than for the love I already have to last forever? Yes. I wish this collection contained at least treble the number of poems. I shall look out for more books by Ms Hernandez.
