AllMusic editor Alex Henderson called Time for Love "a satisfying effort that isn't much different from his previous Capitol releases. The New Yorker obviously knew what his strengths were – smooth soul/urban contemporary music and romantic ballads – and once again, the singer succeeds by zeroing in on them [..] Though it falls short of the excellence of Rock Me Tonight and Just Like the First Time , this CD was a welcome addition to his catalog."
