I want to thank Gretchen Gomez for gifting me a copy of love, & you. I won this book in a Twitter Giveaway and all opinions and views expressed are my own.
Exerpt off Goodreads:
one day i met a guy
who stole my heart,
we created a world
and another day
he broke my heart
i took the tattered
pieces of this
broken soul and
– here lies the hurting, the healing, and the learning
(please be advised this book has mature content)
Review: Wow! I have not read a poetry book in a long time and was so glad I sat down and read love, & you. I won this book as a giveaway that many entered off of Twitter. I was like “Yay free book”. What I didn’t realize was the effect this book would have on me personally. The author talks about her heartbreak, trauma, sickness and eventually loving herself. I could relate to everything the author stated and could feel her emotions through the pages. I actually read this book in one sitting with my girlfriend Andrea and we were both stunned on how intense this book was and how much we could relate. Gretchen Gomez put her pain on paper and created an intense and heartfelt masterpiece. From someone who has battled mental illness, cancer and heartbreak, this poetry book was just what I needed to hold my head up. I fight everyday with my emotions and physical ailments. Love, & you was a short poetry book but packed the right punch. I needed to hear your story Gretchen, to change my own. 5 out of 5 stars!!!💚💛💜💙😁
Thank you to everyone who entered and who has shown their support!!! The winner of the Giveaway is E. Michael Helms! I sent you an email and will have your book out within the week! Sorry to everyone who didn’t win this time but I’m always posting Giveaways and trying to show the love!!! Thanks everyone!!!💚💛💜💙
Black & Blue
Publication date: November 9th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, LGBTQ+, Romance
Trouble seems to follow me everywhere. No doubt accepting a ride from a sexy, fierce biker on a rainy night seems like another bad move. Except this one desperate leap of faith brings Declan into my life.
From unreadable machine to possessive lover, he challenges me to want more.
Can I finally throw off the shackles of my tough life and embrace the promise of a good man?
Black & Blue is a standalone M/M romance with graphic sexual content, violent situations, and extreme profanity.
Stumbling from the Harley, my legs feel like jelly. My starving stomach no longer growls, now as numb as the rest of my cold, battered body.
“Where are we?” I ask when the biker only stares at me.
Soft rain soaks his thick, dark hair and beard. He looks like a wild man, ready to skin and devour his kill. I’m desperate to look away from his nearly black eyes and remain in control of myself. I can’t, though, because he both terrifies and intrigues me.
“I live in the apartment upstairs. You can crash here until you figure things out.”
When his hand jerks forward, I immediately flinch and expect more violence after a shitty day that’ll never end. His hand grips the back of my neck, sending panic and pain through me. I fist my hands and prepare to fight him. Exhausted after so long running, I never expect his lips to crush mine. He forces my mouth open and tastes me roughly.
I can’t think. Nothing about the biker’s earlier demeanor made me believe he desired me, so his kiss throws me off guard. I never consider what he might expect from me in return for a safe place to stay for the night. No, instead my fear violently shifts into the kind of lust I’ve long imagined and never enjoyed.
Before I can meet his passion with mine, the biker releases me and turns away. I’m left rejected and desperate, yet unable to show either emotion. My only option is to follow him obediently.
Living in Indiana with my three sweet sons, three wacky cats, one super mom (and her ugly dog), I love cats, 1970s rock, Call of Duty, and sitcoms canceled before their time.
I also write M/F contemporary romance as Bijou Hunter.

YES PEOPLE !! JESSICA JONE’S ACTRESS WROTE A BOOK 😀 !
Let’s be honest, with all the celebrities wanting to write books (and Youtubers…), I was skeptical whether this was going to be good or not. So, how did Krysten Ritter deliver?
