Love Me Breathless... Because Romance Never Dies (Love Poems) by Mary-Lisa Russo is a collection of love and romance poetry that would appeal to a mixed audience of young adult and adult romantic poetry lovers. This collection is made up of romance-themed poetry made up of more than one hundred different poems. Each poem was written with the goal of filling the heart of each reader with love and dispelling the belief that true affection and adoration are a myth. Are you ready to open your heart and reawaken your confidence in love, affection, and adoration?

Love Me Breathless... Because Romance Never Dies (Love Poems) by Mary-Lisa Russo is a well-written poetry collection packed to the brim with emotion. The book begins with a well-organized table of contents and a note from the author with the advice of finding a soothing space in which to allow the collection to nurture one’s own well-being. I personally really liked this note as it gave the book a personal touch and I found that by following the author’s advice I was able not just to enjoy the collection of poems but to truly embrace them and their meaning. While I enjoyed each poem in the collection, it was the poem titled “Nothing Else Mattered” that genuinely touched me. I liked the way it did not focus on new love, but rather an established one that allowed me to feel not just the love that comes from a new romance, but the love that comes from enjoying the little things with another person. Overall, I found this collection to be both relaxing and rejuvenating as it has left me inspired to seek out the kind of love found in these poems for myself!
