Celia Mendoza is not living La Vida Loca. She put her graduate studies on hold after her father died. Now she dishes out advice in her e-zine column, Luna Love, Loving is Good. The problem is, she hasn’t had a second date or a kiss in over a year. Then Gabe Mercer, a modern-day Adonis, shows up, daring her to take a chance. The string of broken hearts in his wake turns Celia off, but his relentless encouragement to pursue her dream of becoming a serious journalist contradicts his reputation, making it hard to fight the pull of his topaz, come-hither eyes. He’s everything Luna Love tells her readers to take a chance on, but Celia can’t decide if a chance encounter is worth the gamble. But life has a will of its own, and hers is pushing Celia to accept the uncertainty and run towards her destiny.

Celia Mendoza is the main character of Loving is Good, and when we meet her, she’s already suffered through quite a lot. Her father died, and she put her graduate studies on hold to deal with the loss. Now she comes up with advice in here e-zine column, Luna Love, Loving is Good.

Except that even though she dishes out dating advice, she hasn’t had a proper date or a kiss in more than year. She’s too reluctant to even give it a shot, tormented by one broken heart after another. But then Gabe Mercer show up, and he’s everything she ever dreams about: a man who encourages her to persue her dreams, someone who urges her to take risks, to become a better person, to constantly improve herself. That he’s extremely good looking is only the cheery on top. Still, Celia is reluctant to take the bet, to fall in love again, to risk being hurt again. But sometimes life has a funny way of making true love happen.

Celia is a bubbly character, and although she’s had her fair share of ups and downs, she always stays positive. She has a great personality, and forms a good match with Gabe. They had instant chemistry, and I liked how their relationship developed – from instant attraction to deep caring.

The writing is solid, and the story is short and fun. This is a novella, so it’s a quick read, but an enjoyable one all the same.
