Sentenced to probation, thirty-year-old, supermodel Grace King must put her plans of transitioning into acting to extend the longevity of her career on hold. Desperate to keep a close eye on Grace and his job Grace’s ambitious lawyer, Ethan Summerville has her complete community service in the last place Grace wants to be. His church.

Instead of God, Grace finds a “chocolate drop” of a man–Brother Horace Green. However, Horace isn’t looking for a supermodel. He wants his woman saved and sanctified, but Grace has never met a man who has been able to resist her. Will Horace compromise his faith for a taste of fortune, fame, and Grace?

While Grace focuses on the pursuit of passion Ethan finds one director willing to take a risk and cast Grace in his debut film, but this role fits Grace all too well. Will this film revive Grace’s relationship with God and her career or bring her closer to destruction?


Review: How do we save Grace King from herself? After years of self-destruction staring early on with her family which leads her to secrets that she keeps hidden Grace ends up in front of the judge who gives her a break or second chance with probation. Everyone can see the good in Grace but Grace herself. As her past comes into her present Grace is faced with challenges.

I found it hard to deal with Grace at first because she was very tough and edgy making herself very unlikable even though she was a beautiful model she was ugly inside. As the story unfolds and the secrets of her past are unraveled showing the reason she become addicted to alcohol and drugs the layers begin to peel away and I found that I was able to relate to this Grace, edgy attitude and all.

For me the storyline was a little slow but Ms. Lockley would reveal just enough to keep turning the pages. I found as I began to relate to some of the things Grace was going through that I was rooting for her to find peace with her past so that she could have a future where she could find love. With her manager by her side pushing her she would never have been able to face her past. Sometimes healing comes in the most unlikely of people. For Grace hers was in Horace actually. Right away there was that connection that you just knew was going to be big.

In the end, I liked this story as it was straight to the point and made me stop and think.
