Los Angeles Times: "Fascinating and disturbing. Flook is no stranger to the territory of sexual ambiguity. Everyone keeps schemes and secrets from the others; in the kaleidoscopic movement of Mothers and Lovers," we get to know them all."
Elle Magazine: "Best-selling author Maria Flook's edgy new saga is spiked with lyrically erotic overtones.in this daring tale of temptation and taboo."
Booklist: "Flook is drawn to stories about people who have boundary issues. She has the ability to capture the thrill of flouting taboos and also the compassion to reserve judgment about people. A disquieting story."
Kirkus: "Sexual tensions compound with sexual secrets until they burst open."
