Jade Lopez cannot take it anymore. There have been one too many fights, one too many hits, in her marriage. Her husband is no longer the man she married. Despite a fierce passion still blazing for him, Jade leaves LA for Florida with their daughter, Isabella.

Gabriel Lopez is not an easy man to live with. A famous musician, he has everything he wants. Until the day Jade leaves with Isabella. It’s his wake-up call. Why are they fighting so much? Why can’t they work on those irreconcilable differences?

Jade and Gabriel still love each other, but the meaning of love has gotten lost along the way. Passion and lust still blazes between them, but how far can steamy sex take a couple? Is there hope for them to mend the pieces of their hanging-by-the-thread relationship?

Ms. Grace blazes with her first novel here, after having published countless short pieces. Rarely has a story captivated me so much. Where most stories end with a couple getting married, LOVING GABRIEL starts when this same "Happily Ever After" setting is shaken on its hinges. The story mingles internal demons, passion, enduring love, and redemption, in a breathtaking flow of narrative. The multicultural dimension given through Jade’s character was a pleasant surprise – another one Ms. Grace handled with an equal dose of mastery. I can sincerely say LOVING GABRIEL is one of the best novels I have read.
