Editorial Reviews

"The other half of the love story first found in Amanda Lovelace's the princess saves herself in this one, Cyrus Parker's easy-to-read DROPKICKromance plays with form on the page to tell a story that will linger, particularly in the minds of romantic teen boys."

– Nicole Brinkley, bookseller at Oblong Books & Music

"Cyrus Parker's debut collection is an elegy of softness, heartache, and powerful self love. It takes you on an eloquent journey analyzing the anatomy of the heart, and its chambers of pain, love, betrayal, and truth. Parker's writing is like balm through this journey. Where the sharp pain of memory hits, his wisdom acts as healer to that pain. A thoroughly impressive debut that will leave you stronger and yearning for more of Parker's exceptional writing. This book is a blessing to the world it is to be born into."

– Nikita Gill, author of Your Soul Is a River & Wild Embers

“From drowning in a dark sea of lost love to swimming with a mermaid filled with hope, honesty, and a love that will never sink, DROPKICKromance wrestles with heartbreak and will win you over with poems of self-discovery, healing, and the fairytale ending you've always wanted to read.”

– Gretchen Gomez, author of love, and you
