[In You Would if You Loved Me Gordon] has collected a pride of lines, used more or less successfully by hot-blooded youths trying to warm up cool young women. For the most part, the "invitations" are crude and markedly offensive, many followed by no more edifying examples of riposte that only quick-thinking maidens would fire back. An introduction cites woeful statistics on betrayed and pregnant young women who certainly need all the help they can get against the importunities of love-them-and-leave-them types. Perhaps this book, clumsy and slapdash though it is, will give ignorant teenaged females some life-saving ammunition.

A review of "You Would If You Loved Me," in Publishers Weekly (reprinted from the July 31, 1978 issue of Publishers Weekly, published by R. R. Bowker Company, a Xerox company; copyright © 1978 by Xerox Corporation), Vol. 214, No. 5, July 31, 1978, p. 99.
