REVIEW: Gabriel's Inferno (Gabriel's Inferno #1) by Sylvain Reynard


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.

My Thoughts

Why oh why did I wait so long to read this book? That's right... I HATE waiting for the next books in a series to be published! Especially if the following books are a continuation of the story. With the third book in the Gabriel's Inferno series due for publication in December, I thought now was a good time to jump in to the first two books.

And jump in to it is exactly what I did with Gabriel's Inferno! Reading this book has consumed the past two days for me, and I loved every minute of it. The book is a long one, and it did seem to drag a little in the middle, but not once did it let go of my attention. 

I was hooked from the very beginning of the story. I fell in love with the characters, and it was very easy to relate to them. I was totally immersed in the world of Gabriel and Julia. I actually found myself getting a little impatient at times, as I was constantly wanting to know more. What is going to happen next? What happened in the past? What's the importance of this situation? 

I found Gabriel's Inferno to be a marvelous page turner! I also feel that the fact that Gabriel is Julia's professor kept me intrigued. I was extremely eager to find out if their relationship progressed without any ramifications. 

If you like the student/teacher relationship romances, I strongly recommend reading Gabriel's Inferno (if you haven't already)! As for me, I'm off to start the second book, Gabriel's Rapture. :)
