The sequel to the Lambda Literary Award-winning Every Time I Think of You reintroduces readers to Everett and Reid as they traverse the next phases of their relationship.
Locals will love the Philly references, from Everett and Reid's visit to Forbidden Drive to taking in Rocky Horror shows at TLA, and how the city shapes their relationship. Message of Love is a brilliant retelling of young love and the transformations it undergoes as lovers grow from adolescence to adulthood.
- Philadelphia Gay News
"With lively, electric prose, Provenzano conjures an epic love story. He reminds the reader that there's always something after the murkiest of fates and will make the doubtful believe in romance again. Message of Love makes a significant contribution to disability and queer literature while touching the heart of the general reader." - Belo Miguel Cipriani, author of Blind: A Memoir
The compelling tale of Reid and Everett reminds one of the age old saying that love conquers all and that relationships are about compromise. This sequel has its share of drama, but more of the everyday trials and tribulations and complications that hold true for any two individuals who share each other's lives, and an unconditional love.
Message of Love is an earnest, heartfelt and refreshing continuation of a young couple's adventures that leaves the reader excited, amused and inspired.

From the Inside Flap
"Instantly compelling and richly textured, Message of Love is more than a sequel; it's a highly readable novel of two young men trying to learn to love amid the manifold distractions of college, family, and even an epidemic." - Felice Picano, author of the bestselling Like People in History

The first story won the Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Romance in 2012. Two years later, this offering, "Message of Love" was a Lambda Finalist. Together these two stories knocked my socks off. I read hundreds of m/m offerings each year (as well as other genres outside of m/m) and these are two of the best I've read. They are simply so good that I could not even think about picking up another book until almost a week after finishing them both. I usually read 5-6 books a week and I found I needed to just sit with Reid and Everett for a bit before diving into anything else.
The blurbs for the books tell you what they are about. I can tell you that I highly recommend both of them. I left a five star review for "Every Time I Think Of You" as well. You can read more of my thoughts on the characters and the writing there, if you are so inclined.
I have added other works by this author to my wish list and look forward to reading them later this year.
I feel there is more to this story and truly wish Mr. Provenzano continues with the Everett and Reid saga. After all, their lives together has really just begun!
