I really liked the framing with the REO Speedwagon songs, and the letter-writing structure--very original, and a good way to trace the changing relationship, given the word restrictions.

There are a few POV issues in the first half; we switch from her POV to his--but this is very minor.

This is realistic, and very sweet.
There's always a little controversy in a good romance, and you've captured it well.

Oh, how I hate the "it's best for both of us" speeches! I also got a little confused with the POV in the first section, but that's easily fixed. I loved the letters exchanged, and the REO Speedwagon song... Nice job. Cheri

Enjoyed this very much - you did a good job of showing the changes in their feelings through the letters - and i LOVE REO speedwagon! :D

A very fitting title! The letters were the best part, cute that she would send paragraphs and get a one-liner in reply. Very realistic, glad they got together in the end though. ^_^

You have to love any entry that uses REO Speedwagon!! I loved the letter format as well. This was a realistic romance and a good read!
