    I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.

    "No Comparison to 50 Shades"

    I think that there is no real comparison between 50 Shades and Gabriel. I loved 50 Shades and I really like Gabriel and Julian's Story as well. These books are not as intense as I thought they would be but still a really great story.

    "A love story so strong you won't want to stop."

    I could not treat my ears away from the audio. If only true love could excise as it does for the Professor & soul mate.

    "fantastic character development"

    loved book two! We learn more about each character and the narration was perfect. I can't wait to listen to the final book to see how Gabriel and Julianne's story ends!

    "Great series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gabriel's Rapture to be better than the print version?

    In my review of Gabriel's Inferno I mentioned that this book was eloquently written and so smart. The author did not fail in carrying that to the second book. Gabriel and Julia are wonderful characters and though Gabriel can come off so sweet that my teeth hurt he also can be brooding and pompous but it does it so well you cant help but love him.

    Story
    "Learning Curves with a Happy Ending"

    I've learned a few things from this series: 1. is that if you are familiar with the Italian poet Dante and Beatrice's story along with other famous poets then this is the book for you and you will appreciate the quotes used throughout the story. I'm not familiar with famous poet's quotes so I had to really think about the meanings of the quotes and how it applies to the storyline. 2. is that you have to have A LOT of patience. This book is not only long, but aggrevating for me at times because I have little patience and I found myself pounding my fists on my desk in frustration because Julia is so naive and insecure with her relationship with Gabriel. I can't believe the things she says or feels after all they've been through. 3. but alas, if you have patience to listen to the first book, then you will have patience to listen to this book which will result in a happy ending. It was an enjoyable listen during the end and I look forward to the next book in the series.
