Sylvain Reynard: Gabriel's Rapture

Ebook ead Gabriel's Rapture by Sylvain Reynard –

I wandered in the darkness looking for something better something eal I found you and I ll be damned if I m going to lose you 4 StarsThe angst and drama in Gabriel s Rapture amazed me In this seuel we get to experience Gabriel and Julia s elationship in a much deeper level The book picked up where Gabriel s Inferno left off Everything seemed perfect when it comes to Gabriel and Julia s elationship but unexpected situations suddenly came out which led their elationship to a different painful directionFirst of all I have to say that I knew it I knew what was about to come so it didn t surprise me when it finally happened I was so scared of the conseuences that these two will be facing when I was still eading the first book so I can say that I m already prepared for it What surprised me most was the pain that it caused What happened to Julia and Gabriel was too heart breakingBut you know the good thing about this book It ended beautifully that I was so glad to leave it when I turned the last page I actually wished that it was the ending for the whole seriesAnother thing that I loved about this book was the way Gabriel continued to treat Julia gently despite what happened to them Julia on the hand also had a notable character development She was able to handle things differently here and for that I adored herI loved Gabriel s Rapture as a whole It s one of the well written seuels I ve ever ead because of the way it was delivered I m excited to find out how the series will conclude in the third book She is not my eual She is my better She is my sticky leaf I am so glad that Mr Reynard was nice enough to give me a copy of this a week before it s elease so I good devour it before going into the hospital I waited for its elease for months and let me tell you I was not one bit disappointed by it I could write pages just on my favorite uotes the writing is superb and extremely sexy without having to be eroticThe book starts out the morning after their first love making experience in Italy that occurred at the end of Gabriel s Inferno I loved that I did not miss a moment of their lives and was able to ead about the growth of their elationship They spend some time dealing with their pasts Julia the shy one who had a difficult childhood and Gabriel the sexually promiscuous one who had been adopted by a family that he didn t uite think he deserved I saw flashes of Julia gaining control of her own life and not letting others walk all over her Gabriel was learning to love but still had issues letting Julia make some of the decisions in their elationshipI love the way that Gabriel loves Julia He is so protective kind and provides her with endless pleasure He begins to learn to deal with his feelings without turning to sex which had become his addiction after drugs a coping mechanism eally Now Gabriel did make my blood boil a time or two when he tried to make some major decisions in their elationship without consulting Julia I understand why he did it but big decisions should always be made together especially in matters of the heart There was a portion of the book where Gabriel essentially became like Julia in the Gabriel s Inferno and Julia became like Gabriel as far a sexual need goes While it was ironic it showed how both characters had grown over the course of their elationshipThere will be those that are trying to pull them apart and don t forget their elationship in Gabriel s Inferno started when Gabriel was the professor and Julia the student Would the force of these things be strong enough to tear them apart Is their love strong enough to get through the storm Will Julia be his Beatrice foreverThe book was as intense as the first but far omantic The writing is brilliant and I could feel what the characters were feeling in my heart I don t think that the book could have had a better ending I know some people will want a third book but for me the series ended perfectly Love is not loveWhich alters when it alteration findsOr bends with the emover to emoveO no it is an ever fixed markThat looks on tempests and is never shaken It is the star to every wand ing barkWhose worth s unknown although his height be takenSonnet 116 William Shakespeare Shakespeare s Sonnets I am truly devoted to this series and to Sylvain s penmanship God you can feel how dedicated he was in every aspect of this book from the plot to the characters and other details that surrounded it I can only imagine the hard work and esearch put into writing this book because not one word is there unnecessary and without meaning Gabriel s Rapture is the second installment of this great trilogy Here we find our beloved Gabriel already exploring his elationship with Julia his younger lover After the happenings in book 1 they accepted their feelings from one another and are madly in love Their connection is intense and passionate I enjoyed the attention that the writer had on building this special elationship between Gabriel and Julia From my point of view it is one of the most beautiful love stories ever because the humanity of its heroes They are not perfec.

efforts are truly admirable I m no miracle worker But I love you There was a time when I could have been led astray But that was before I found you I would ather spend the est of my life drinking your

this series YesWould I e ead this series YesWould I ead future books by this author Yes A very good book in my opinion and I believe that my eview says everything A pleasure eading this bookRecenzia mea completa o g si i aici This was the joy that the world sought sacred and pagan all at once A union between two dissimilars into a seamless oneJulianne and Gabriel are together at last Holidaying in Italy Gabriel is lovingly guiding Julianne into the pleasures and intimacies of a sexual elationship She proves an apt student But with their eturn to the university both Gabriel and Julianne are caught up in the administration s investigations into misconduct and inappropriate behaviour between staff and students One of the strengths of both Gabriel s Inferno and Gabriel s Rapture is the many eferences to food wine languages art architecture music literature and the knowledge of the local shops and eateries of the great cities of the world Even fashion and surprisingly women s fashion does not escape the notice of author Sylvain Reynard Having ead uite a few omance novels by many different authors across most of the sub genres of omance I have never come across any author who is so well versed in the fine arts with such a comprehensive knowledge of literature The 12th century love story of Abelard and Heloise for example is not commonly known I think but it was cleverly written into this story and parallels in many espects Gabriel and Julianne s own love storyThis book also focuses on Gabriel s introspection his uest for forgiveness and edemption Not only emotionally and psychologically but spiritually Where the conflict in Gabriel s Inferno was mostly played out between Gabriel and Julianne this time the conflict comes from a number of external sources Their love is established yet still faces obstacles Gabriel s generosity and his gentleness towards Julianne is demonstrated in a number of ways The love scenes though not steamy are sensual and omanticDespite my enjoyment of Gabriel s Rapture there are a few complaints Julianne is very teary and at times immature for a twenty three year old This may be the author s way of demonstrating her innocent nature but it does sometimes grate Gabriel is overly protective almost cloying and treating her as if she too fragile and precious There were also some unanswered uestions about the final outcomes for Christa and PaulFinally just a word about the author In my opinion very few male authors can write omance well This is not a sexist emark but a personal observation after eading many omances I can count on one hand the number of omance novels by male authors that I have enjoyed Both Mr Reynard s novels are in that number Perhaps other male omance authors simply don t write to my taste in novels Whatever the eason I have been mostly disappointed in omances written by menI have no idea if Mr Reynard is as urbane intelligent educated and worldly as Prof Emerson but he certainly comes across this way in his writing I m a little bit awestruck at a man who knows the story of Abelard and Heloise who knows about a certain dress worn by the late Grace Kelly in the 50s a Bordelle chemise a Michael Kors bag and most importantly that no civilised person would drink coffee with milk after breakfastAfter eading Gabriel s Inferno I was convinced author Sylvain Reynard was actually Ms Reynard and mentioned this on a number of occasions to friends Surely no mere male could write a omance so well and convey such depth of emotion that at least in my experience seems to be the preserve of female authors I m still finding it difficult to believe that Sylvain Reynard is a bloke But take that as a compliment Mr ReynardSteam 25. O keep Julia his Beatrice forever In Gabriel's Rapture the brilliant seuel to the wildly successful debut novel Gabriel's Inferno Sylvain Reynard weaves an exuisite love story that will touch the eader's mind body and soul forev.
