Maryann Scheufele from AXS called it a "beautiful love song", adding that it "suggests how quickly time passes and love happens. Gloria Estefan has a powerful voice in this love song as she sings that there is "nothing I can do to keep from loving you" believably. Be reassured by love as you listen."Entertainment Weekly noted in their review, that it "croon along smoothly". Pop Rescue wrote that "acoustic guitars gently strum in the background, and a scattering of piano help this song step back and let Gloria’s vocals shine."
