Blurb: Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father. But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation—research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets. In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.
It seemed as though I had been waiting FOREVVVVVVVER for this book. I’ve read Book 1 & 2 probably 4 times each – not counting listening to the audiobooks a time or five. But I was desperate to find out what would happen with Julia & Gabriel. Even though, Gabriel’s Rapture ended on a good note, when I had heard Sylvain Reynard decided to make this a trilogy??? I literally squealed!
I adored these characters. These novels are what true romance is supposed to be. Gabriel is hopelessly flawed, but Julia is there to help him recognize how good he is … inside and out. I was nervous that the story would ruin the other two flawless books, but I was sooooooooooo wrong. What he’s done was smart – beautiful – real – and always sexy. Because Professor Emerson is …. well sexy on a stick. The romance, albeit cheesy at some points is still beautiful. Because he adores his wife. Reynard shows the flaws in marriage, especially within the first few years. I admit I could relate to a lot of it, as Gabriel and Julia are learning how to be a husband and wife. There will be fights – there will be hardships – but putting the work into the relationship is key in any successful relationship. And he shows that beautifully – and realistically.
Sure – some of their old demons spring up, and it’s entertaining to see how the story unfolds. I couldn’t put this down, and was sad when it ended…. hoping for more. But now, it would be silly. He’s done a fabulous job with the trilogy. And although I shall miss these two… I’ll be able to visit them again… on my kindle or my iPhone.
If you haven’t heard the audiobooks? Do so ASAP the narrator for Gabriel is ….. amazing.
