Denise N. Fyffe picks a difficult subject to shine in: love. There are dozens upon dozens, if not hundreds upon hundreds, of book shelves worth of poetry collections dealing with romance and varying emotions that tend to accompany it. Yet, somehow, against all odds, Sensuous One does stand out. Covering topics from secretly crushing on someone of interest to the heart break when a relationship doesn't go as well as planned, Fyffe will take you across the spectrum of love and, in the end, you'll find you quite enjoyed the ride.

Here's where Sensuous One and its author Denise N. Fyffe excel: I feel the poet here really has experienced this entire broad range of feelings that love can gift and inflict. There is some genuine heartache within these fluid words that make me really connect better than some romantic collections I've sloughed through in the past. Plus, I love how she does what many other poetry pieces skip over: she gives the spotlight to the shy person in the corner who knows and desires and has the goal of love in their heart and mind, but are too afraid to actually get the three little words out. Many readers will identify with and have a better reading experience thanks to that. Aside from the cover, everything else is a hole in one and a must-read for the romantics at heart looking for something new to dive into.
