Review by: J. C. Allen on March 14, 2013 :
Although these love stories are not your usual happy-ever-after themes, they are all very well written. Mr. Marino has a talent for beautiful phrasing and storytelling.

'Tender Moments' is a macabre Poe-ish story of a traveling salesman who stops at the wrong house.

'Love is Forever' tells a twisted tale of a psychopath's 'gift' to a family.

'Till Death Do Us Part' is a love story of a man who takes his wedding vows very seriously.

'Mother's Love' tells of a son's never-ending quest to please his mother.

'A Love to Live For' presents a man who loses his job and then is betrayed by his wife.

Great job, Mr. Marino!
