I never forgot her. Not for one minute. Not from the last time I saw her, at 17, to today. I measured all women against her, and all women came up short. But being with her was unfeasible in high school, and it's taboo now. I see her sometimes, but I've never spoken to her. She runs, or I run. We're in the same town, on the same block, in the same building, and the gulf between us has been just too wide to cross. Until tonight.

The book is almost entirely internal monologue. Didn't like the main character at all. I couldn't feel sorry for her when she brought everything upon herself. I typically love this author, but the characters, lack of dialogue and unbelievable plot made want my credit back.

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.

Would you try another book from Sylvain Reynard and/or John Morgan?

No for the author, yes for the narrator.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvain Reynard again?

Yes

Which scene was your favorite?

None

Do you think Gabriel's Inferno needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. I just don't understand how this book received so many positive reviews. Okay, I understand that there isn't a book for everyone. That being said, he treated her as his daughter. Yuck! Could not finish it.
