    Story
    "A Story That Will Remain With You Forever"
    If you could sum up Gabriel's Rapture in three words, what would they be?

    Sylvain Reynard is a brilliant writer, a master with words who draws you into his story on the first page. I never wanted it to end. The saga is a journey about two compelling people, Julianne and Gabriel whose love survives through years of uncertainty and times of sorrow and loss. I fell in love with Gabriel. It also made me want to brush up on my Italian and remember my many trips to my favorite country to vacation, Italy. The reader will also be educated in the story about Dante and Beatrice during the Italian Renaissance. SR is currently writing book 3 in this unforgetable love story. I anxiously await its release.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character has to be Gabriel. His troubled journey shows his strength to dispel his addictions and achieve something better in life. It results in his finding his one true love. Gabriel is a man who loves like no other. He's willing to make great sacrifices because of his deep love for Julianne.


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

    I loved John Morgan's narration. He's a gifted actor. His deep voice made one visualize the male characters more distinctly, especially Gabriel. I could sense his powerful image. As far as the female characters, a little less. It took a while to get used to it.


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

    I had a box of tissues next to me because I did cry quite often. There were times I laughed as well. SR is such a master with his words that one minute I had tears running down my cheeks, the next I was laughing. And, quite often I was swooning because of Gabriel's expertise in lovemaking. OH MY!


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this story three times and will listen to it again. I cannot get enough of Professor Gabriel Owen Emerson and Julianne in this enduring love story.

    "Great #2 ...ready for #3"
    Where does Gabriel's Rapture rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high.. maybe a 8 out of 10


    What other book might you compare Gabriel's Rapture to and why?

    Different elements remind me of other books like Reflected In You.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Same as the first book... just did not go with the book. The voice just didn't feel right for this one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    Story
    "Dragged on a LOT, but eventually got a sweet story"

    I was told to read these books as a follow up from 50 and Bared to You...it wasn't, so if that is what you are looking for move on. The first 8 hours of this book could have been summed up in about 20 minutes, I have no idea why it dragged on for SOOO long, but once it got going it was a sweet love story, and the performance was done well.
