Blurb: Magnetic Repulsion, 100 Poems From Desire to Disgust, is a collection of poetry. It begins where most relationships do, right from your first heart twisting clean thought of promised romance, and pulls you along to the final charred burning of your partner's belongings. Patricia A. Hawkenson shares the experiences of powerful attractions that keep dragging couples together and then yanking them apart. 
Review: Magnetic Repulsion is a book of poems that throws vivid imagery of love learned and lost at the reader. It is littered with strong metaphors. Some of the poems were easy to relate to because the majority of us have been through all of these emotions. The way in which Hawkenson chronicles the cycle of love is done so with wit and her personality shines through the pages. It was extremely enjoyable to read a book of poetry with such a personal feel to it... although it had me reminiscing about things I had wished to forget ;)
I would heavily suggest this book to those that enjoy reading poetry that speaks of passion and heartbreak. I'm sure I don't have to tell any of you this, haha, but if you're not one for poetry or poetry about love- don't even bother picking up this book.
