Thirty-six-year-old Gabriella Stevens is living a quiet and content fairy tale as a devoted housewife to Simon-just as her traditional Filipino mother has always told her to do-when, after sixteen years of marriage and twenty years together, he tells he wants a divorce.

Simon has been Gabby's everything since they were kids; without him, her world implodes. But as she navigates her way through the wreckage of the marriage she thought would last forever, she becomes determined to make a life on her own. With New York City as her backdrop, Gabby-single for the first time since she was a teenager-goes back to school, gets her first real job, and faces unfamiliar reality with determination.

Gabby's life takes another turn when she falls in love with her mysterious but utterly beautiful creative writing professor, Colt. Being with Colt is exhilarating for her-something new, something exciting and beyond understanding. He is almost seven years her junior, and a literary genius. But he is also battling demons of his own: a tragic past that may have made him incapable of love.

Is Gabby destined for another heartbreak-or will her connection with Colt be what unbreaks her?

"A woman starts over after the end of her marriage in Gabriel's debut contemporary romance novel . . . the author's narrative voice is engaging, and readers will root for Gabby and Colt to find happiness. A sexy and often compelling love story . . . "
-Kirkus Reviews

"A heartfelt debut, After Perfect depicts a woman's healing after divorce with grace and empathy. Maan Gabriel is an author to watch in contemporary women's fiction."
-Tif Marcelo, USA Today best-selling author of The Key to Happily Ever After

"Maan Gabriel's After Perfect is the story of a marriage and a divorce and the complexities of both. Gabriel explores how cultural expectations may not only inform decision-making but determine it. In clear prose and through vivid scenes, Maan Gabriel shows us this irony-often through relationships, we come to know ourselves."
-Corie Adjmi, award-winning author of Life and Other Shortcomings

"At once relatable and unexpected, After Perfect is the story of one woman's quest to learn to live-and love-on her own terms after heartbreak. Maan Gabriel is a refreshing new voice in women's fiction."
-Camille Pagan, bestselling author of Don't Make Me Turn This Life Around
