All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams made a fine team on this collection of sentimental love songs and light pop ballads. They had had previous success on the title track, which had been included on her first release, so they opted for a full session. They had a moderate hit with a cover of "You're All I Need To Get By," and they also reworked Stevie Wonder's "Until You Come Back To Me That's What I'm Going To Do." It peaked at Number 19 on the pop chart, and actually proved Williams' most consistent album from a sales standpoint.
