Patti Austin enjoyed good chart action and radio airplay with this mid-'80s release. A pair of singles, "Hot! In the Flames of Love" and "Star Struck," got both R&B and dance attention, while the album had some other competent up-tempo material and a couple of good ballads. It wasn't her best on Qwest, but it was far from her worst. ~ Ron Wynn
