"That was adorable!! Seriously. I just devoured Ed and Joe in all their cute, funny, sarcastic, too-manly-for-emotion glory." ~ "I loved Ed and Joe together. They were sweet, funny, macho, and sarcastic. They were best friends that also happened to be partners in all forms of the word. They loved deep and it was great to see them evolve and not be afraid to show it."

"Highly recommended! I just loved Joe and Ed! PS: I have a shelf on GoodReads titled Fuck Yeah, 5+ Stars. Out of almost 2000 books I've read that are posted on GoodReads, only 43 of them are on that shelf, this is one of them. Cultivating Love is one of my all-time favorite books and I re-read it every few months or so, or when I'm in a particularly bad mood. It cheers me up every time. LOVE THIS BOOK!"
--Gigi, Gay Book Reviews, Review of the first edition of Cultivating Love
"Here at Obsidianbookshelf.com, I found Cultivating Love to be an absorbing read. It's especially good with its character realism. Joe and Ed come across as regular guys. Even better, they are at that beginning stage in their relationship where each is still struggling with the uncertainty of not knowing exactly how much the other cares for him or whether they will be together for the rest of their lives."
--Val, Obsidian Bookshelf, Review of the first edition of Cultivating Love
"Addison Albright pens a wonderful conflict in Cultivating Love. It's all about taking that step out of your comfort zone and laying it on the line and hoping your love and actions are not repelled. Joe and Ed are well-developed characters that I became emotionally attached to as I got to know them. Cultivating Love is a great read."
--Raine, Joyfully Reviewed, Review of the first edition of Cultivating Love
"I truly enjoyed reading Cultivating Love. Reading about Ed and Joe trying not to be "mushy" really cracked me up a time or two, and I liked how the author allowed the couple to sort of grow into it as the story progressed. The love scenes are well written, and erotic, as well as, tender making them my favorite sort to read. Ms. Albright has a real talent for giving the reader just enough clues to keep things interesting without overwhelming the reader with a ton of details. I'm a big fan of m/m romance and Ms. Albright just went to the top of my "to be read" list. I highly recommend this book!"
--Regina, Coffee Time Romance & More, Review of the first edition of Cultivating Love
"I loved this book. Addison Albright's stories never disappoint, but with Cultivating Love, she's kicked it up a notch. This book caught and held my attention, I laughed and cried with Ed and Joe, and I was really sorry when the book was over. I think a five-star book is one that you keep thinking about the next day, running through special moments again, till you have to go back and just read it again just to make sure you didn't miss anything. I highly recommend this book."
--Carole, Rainbow Reviews, Review of the first edition of Cultivating Love
"Cultivating Love is a sweet, meaningful romance that addresses important issues that effect the gay community. Ed and Joe's feelings for each other are deep and caring, yet both men have a hard time voicing how they feel. They both know how they feel for each other, and the author does a wonderful job of showing the reader the torment they feel inside as they worry how the other will react should they show their emotional vulnerability. This vulnerability is what takes this story from good to great. The depth of emotion is strong throughout. Addison Albright also addresses other issues that gay men face; from prejudice that stems from stupidity to familial acceptance, she brings them to forefront. At the same time, she intersperses truly loving people that accept what life shows them. I enjoyed this heart-warming love story."
