 Elissa Gabrielle returns with her best release to date. A tantalizing debut novel filled with Tenderness, Treachery and Temptation.
What lengths will a woman go to for love?
What lengths will a woman take to keep love?
What secrets will be revealed?
What truths will unfold?
It’s been said that those closest to us can do the most damage.

In Good to the Last Drop, Elissa Gabrielle has crafted a hilarious, sensual and twisted tale that is based on the lives of newlywed college sweethearts, Amber and Khalil. Lost in a web of deceit, Khalil and Amber struggle to remain faithful…to themselves and each other. With a memorable cast of characters that come to life with every page, the story remains gritty, sensual and all too realistic. What roles will the characters play in this web of deception? Who can they trust? Shawn, the best friend and voice of reason. Aaliyah, the gorgeous, yet seductive fiancé’. Shayla, the ghetto-fabulous bitter ex. Scott, the flaming and flamboyant queen, and Keisha, the loud and boisterous best friend and confidant. Make yourself comfortable and get ready for the ride of your life as chickens come home to roost and the strings are pulled from this fabric of treachery, love and scandal.

Reader Reviews for "Good to the Last Drop"

Reviewed by Naiomi Pitre 11/28/2006
Have you ever read a book that made you fight back your tears while reading in public? I hadn’t, until I read <b>Good To The Last Drop by Elissa Gabrielle </b>. I was fortunate enough to come in contact with this highly talented author who told me that the book would definitely give me a “good laugh”. Little did I know that this beautifully packaged book would throw my emotions into a wild spin cycle to rival a defective Maytag front-loading washing machine! <p> </p>
With the author’s comment in mind, I began my journey into the world of newlyweds Khalil and Amber Devereaux. Although hesitant at first about the seemingly long list if characters that were introduced in the first couple of chapters, I soon realized that Gabrielle had the finesse to fully flesh out each and every one. By alternating the first person perspective between her cast of characters from chapter to chapter, Elissa Gabrielle adeptly revealed the inner workings of the people I would soon grow to love. <p> </p>
Admittedly, I did laugh at many scenes throughout the novel – Scott (the flaming gay best friend of Amber) and Aaliyah (the fiancée’ of Khalil’s best friend) bickering in his car which quickly leads to his pulling over to put her out, for instance – but I found that the sections that shine in my memory the brightest were the ones that held more emotional depth. I was so invested in these people that when I witnessed the final climactic moment between two of the main players in this dramatic tale, the tears would not stop forming in my eyes. Would this ultimately destroy them? My heart was so conflicted, and I was taken by surprise at how passionate I felt about the situation. This is the essence of a truly great story: the ability to lose yourself, forget that this is fiction, and believe that these people’s destinies are being exposed with each turn of the page. <p> </p>
Elissa Gabrielle has sufficiently created a love story that will not easily be forgotten by her readers. In a time when so many writers tend to go for the pretty ending all wrapped up in a shiny satin bow, Gabrielle is refreshingly unique in her literary performance. You should not count on your classic fairy-tale ending, but you can anticipate both the feeling of satisfaction you get from a good read and the expectation of more excellently woven stories to come. <p> </p>
