The Critics Have Spoken: A LOVE STORY is a hit!!

"Her direct, clear-eyed tone is matched by his earthy narration, told very much from a male point of view, more raw than most romance language...Their recollections offer compelling access to their emotional states as they struggle to remain friends while becoming lovers...These gripping novels compel the reader to root for heroines--and to seek out authors--who disobey the rules."
--The Washington Post

"Dual narrators enliven this best-friends romance by husband/wife duo Millner and Chiles...the skillful and balanced rendering of his/her voices deepens the reader's insights into the characters' symbiotic relationship. This above-average summer romance should find its way to many beach blankets."
--Publisher's Weekly

"Authors Millner and Chiles deftly split the narrative into his-and-hers POVs to chronicle a tumultuous affair that means more than the lovers want to admit...Another earthy, funny, juicy winner, the third from this husband-and-wife team."
--Kirkus Reviews
