Review 'Gabriel's Rapture' by Sylvain Reynard (ReRead)

Sometimes, we just have to revisit old friends. And since I was having a little trouble reading new things, I decided to re-read a view of my favorites.

About the Book:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13639050-gabriel-s-raptureProfessor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student, Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante's fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?

In Gabriel's Rapture, the brilliant sequel to the wildly successful debut novel, Gabriel's Inferno, Sylvain Reynard weaves an exquisite love story that will touch the reader's mind, body, and soul, forever.

My Review:

When I decided I wanted to t re-read some of my favorite books, I knew I needed to re-read the Gabriel’s Inferno series by Sylvain Reynard. I completely fall in love with this series years ago and I was super excited to start reading these books again. It still surprises me that I can forget certain details over the years.  

‘Gabriel’s Rapture’ is the second book in the Gabriel’s Inferno series and it start right where the first book ended. This book is much more dramatic then the first one, I think. The romance between Julianne and Gabriel is more intense and their relationship gets more and more heated. But they both have a past that keeps haunting them. 

I loved ‘Gabriel’s Rapture’ the first time I read it, and I still love it. Time goes by fast in this book, sometimes to fast for me, but other times I wished time would go by faster. But this isn’t a bad thing. No not at all. The moments Julianne and Gabriel are together are just so good to read about, I just never want to stop reading about them. 

What I loved most about ‘Gabriel’s Rapture’, next to the romance parts is the way Julianne seemed to get a little bit more fierce. In the first book she just seemed to take a lot of bad stuff, and in this book she stands up for herself a little more. And I just really loved that.

If you want to read a beautiful romantic story this series is definitely for you. I also kind of feel like I’m a little smarter since I also learned some art stuff in this read. LOL!

My Rating:

About the Author:


I'm interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition - particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.

I'm also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex's Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House.
