Melinda Beasi appreciated the leads' "warm and consensual" relationship, but felt that the most interesting parts of the story were poorly developed. Rachel Bentham enjoyed the art style. Leroy Dessaroux found the story to be strongly reminiscent of a traditional romance novel. Patricia Beard disliked the characterisation, feeling that the characters were too much like "BL paper dolls", and disliking the softening of the villain, recommending Ishimaru's Total Surrender over Love/Knot.
