Publisher's Summary

From national best-selling author Sylvain Reynard comes the haunting, unforgettable tale of one man’s salvation and one woman’s sensual awakening....

Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption.

When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

An intriguing and sinful exploration of seduction, forbidden love, and redemption, Gabriel’s Inferno is a captivating and wildly passionate tale of one man’s escape from his own personal hell as he tries to earn the impossible - forgiveness and love.

    "Character Development"
    What did you like best about Gabriel's Inferno? What did you like least?

    I liked that it was set in Toronto, which isn't a common city for a plot based in an academic setting. I do think that the main female character should have been better developed. I found her to be so mousy, meek and inexperienced that it was not plausible that she was also a brilliant student who had been accepted by Harvard, and by a well-known professor as a thesis advisor. I struggled to resolve this contradiction as I listened to the book.


    What about John Morgan’s performance did you like?

    Excellent voice for narration. He brought out the strong character of the professor, yet also managed to capture the young and inexperienced personality of the female lead.

    "Romantic!"
    What did you love best about Gabriel's Inferno?

    Gabriel's whispering hot sweet naughty things in Julia's ears. Only from a poet could it be conceivable a man would say such things. It built suspense enough that it was almost a let down to return to the banality of the act itself. I honestly could have done without the final sex scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I am going to read the second book, I am afraid it will mar the romanticism with too much explicitness.

    "Not worth my time"
    Has Gabriel's Inferno turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This book is way too long. And I found myself switch chapters when descriptions of the heroine's shyness came up. The author spelled out every emotion, do we really need this? I went through the whole book, but should have just close it. Not worth my time. Unfortunately, I already bought the sequel when I started this book, on the basis of the first few chapters which at the time seemed inviting.

    Story
    "Just as awful as Twilight"
    Would you try another book from Sylvain Reynard and/or John Morgan?

    If all her book are this long and pretentious, then no!


    What was most disappointing about Sylvain Reynard’s story?

    It's Twilight minus sparkling vampires. The two main characters are so very unreal. Juliana is a weak, niave, throws fits when men can't read her mind, and focuses on making Gabriel the love of her life, rather than her expensive education. Gabriel is a popmus, designer label stamped ass who thinks worldy women are non-persons to be used for sex only and hates himself for having a lebito. He puts Juliana on a pedestal for her "purity and innocence" and is lothed to corrupt her with his beastly ways. Juliana is a fragile simp who is scarred for life because her ex-boyfriend likes Nine Inch Nails and said he wanted to f**k her like an animal. I want to vommit.


    What does John Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would have skipped pages and pages of silly internal dialog on how perfect Gabriel's voice and eyes are and how angelic Juliana is. Unfortunately, skipping is a little hard for an audio book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Nausea


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time. I'm glad I only spent 5 dollars.

    "love it !!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have This book holds a special place in my heart because of its characters and its plot.
    It was the right book for me I do hope that it will be the same for you
    Gabriel's Inferno was such a beautiful, moving, romantic, maddening story, and I'm just absolutely in love with Gabriel Emmerson!!! Oh, yes, he starts out as such a complete ass, and there were many times I wanted to either slap Julia for holding on to her feelings for so long when he's such a jerk, or slap him for not waking up and realizing who she was and just taking her into his arms forever!! You see, Gabriel and Julia met 6 years ago for one brief night when she was young and innocent, but those hours that they shared bearing their souls and holding each other moved them both beyond words. When a misunderstanding finds them both alone and wondering why, they both go about their lives trying to put the impossible behind them. When Julia ends up in Gabriel's graduate class, she is heartbroken when she realizes he not only doesn't recognize her, but he's also a complete jerk. As the walls slowly come crumbling down, Gabriel's feelings for Julia go beyond the student-professor boundaries,


    Have you listened to any of John Morgan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no but this man has a sexy voice wow !!!!
    .


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    oh yes i laugh & cry
