When you forgive, you in no way change the past--but you sure do change the future.

Julia and Gabriel have come a long way. They first met when Julia was seventeen years old. Eight years later, it’s safe to say that their road to a HEA wasn’t easy, and yet neither time nor circumstances and enemies could prevent them from falling in love with each other and being together now and forever. In Gabriel’s Redemption we see Gabriel working as a professor at B2013

When Gabriel's sudden urge to start family complicates things in their personal live, it seems like there may be troubles in the paradise. Will Gabriel, who is still facing demons from his past, be able to achieve long-seeked peace and find redemption from his sins?

To say that this book disappointed me would be an understatement.

Let me be quite frank..

Was this book needed?

This could have stayed a beautiful duet with an amazingly long epilogue at the end of book two.
But the author went ahead and wrote a book 3, which everyone.. including myself were super excited about.. BUT unfortunately the story didn't work for me.. it felt like too much was happening.. and when the book ended.. it felt incomplete.class="gr-hostedUserImg">

Gabriel's Redemption is a beautiful conclusion to a truly insightful and memorable, one-of-a-kind love story. In continuing with its "redemption-based" theme, this final installation follows our characters through their darkest moments, as we see a lot of what was implied in the first two books generously play out.

In an attempt at remaining discreet with plot details, I'll simply mention that this installment deals with the trials Julia and Gabriel face as a newly married couple, while both old and new emotional setbacks arStars*

I've one thing to say- Sylvain Reynard didn't plan to write this book. He wrote Gabriel's Rapture in the hopes that The Professor and Julia's story would be complete. It's the readers that pushed for this book. They wanted more from this couple...a look into their future a few years down the road. To give us a sense of closure. SR gave us this in spades! Not only did we get the COMPLETE HEA for Gabriel and Julianne, but closure to each and every nuance to their story. Of Rachel and Aaron, her

Sylvain Reynard’s GABRIEL'S REDEMPTION is the highly anticipated final book in the Gabriel’s Inferno series. The series was originally conceived as two books, but Reynard changed his mind after readers pleaded for a third. If you haven’t read the series, I do recommend you read the first two books before proceeding to REDEMPTION because Reynard does revisit past characters and gives you character backgrounds that will leave you lost otherwise.

In this book we have a happily married Gabriel and Julia but their happy ever after is far from coming, since they still have a lot of unresolved issues.
Starting with their past and through all the doubts about their future, the lovers still have a bumpy road ahead of them.

Gabriel and Julia are both in Boston and doing well in their pursuits. Their marriage is going well but as always, Gabriel wants more and we all know that he usually gets his way!

Well, I'm happy to say that nothing too crazy happens in this book. Now that doesn't mean there isn't drama because of course there is.

Some issue comes up that causes Gabriel to want to search his past and find out things. And unfortunately it causes him to revert to some bad past behaviors. I was happy that he only did what he did

Our passionate couple is over the moon. They just married and they never been happier.
Still, they're are shadows trying to lurk their happiness.
Christa is set on spreading rumors about them. In her mind she always gets what she wants, and she set her price on him.
Also his past it's still haunting him and he must seek answers to gain some peace with his Beatrice.
Obstacles keeps appearing and they're more united than ever to overcome them all.

The evolution of both characters is just amazing!! Julia is more mature and gradually becoming more sure of herself. And Gabriel, that could be so selfish, now is completely selfless regarding Julia. It shows even in his relationship with his family and friends.

I just love this couple so much. Their love is just a beauty to behold! Their devotion to each other, passion and fated to be together.

The way they see each other and connect at such a higher level, is just B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. Seriously is the word that keeps popping in my mind in each of the 3 books of the series.
It's one of the few romances, that their work is pivotal to the story. They're Dante specialist and we see how much they love it and how it brought them together. And the parallels between their story and their studies is just amazing.The details of the paintings, history and music, elevates even more this already unique story.

Now all adding the exquisite writing of Reynard, it just makes reading this trilogy an unforgettable and one of a kind reading experience.

And that ending? PERFECTION!

I can't recommend this series enough :)

Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard has been my most anticipated read of 2013. I’ve been wanting to have it my hot little hands since I found out that SR was going to write it, so when that moment finally arrived I was ecstatic. I’m just like any other reader when I begin a book…full of anticipation and excitement, and when it’s a favorite author’s book I’m also expectant. I set the bar higher for an author who is continuing a series, and to WoW! me isn’t an automatic, or an easy gimme.
The Gabriel's Inferno series is my unicorn - I LOVED the first book, then I endured a seemingly endless spiral of mediocrity, religious allegory, & angst as I saw it through to the conclusion...

Julia’s heart nearly cracked under the weight of her realization that her love had not healed him.

Well, it seemed that we waited a long time for the release of "Gabriel's Redemption".
I really enjoyed this final installment.
Was it as good as the first two books, in my opinion? No.
It was good but I just feel like something was missing.

Maybe a little too much Dante talk?
I loved Gabriel.
Without a doubt, he's still my #2 book boyfriend.
The man has a sexual appetite that won't quit and is the master at the art of seduction.
I wished the sexy time scenes had more heat to them.

 photo image_zps6386dceb.jpg

Julia, she's still very much annoying.
The woman needs to stand up for herself!!
I loved that Katherine Picton was back in this one and she basically told Julia she needs to start defending herself.
I believe she meant against people like Christa Peterson, but no, the person she stands up to is Gabriel.
I felt he was trying hard to battle his inner demons and he wanted so desperately to start a family with Julia, but she spent most of the time having anxiety over having children and finishing her studies at Harvard.

 photo image_zps054cadaa.jpg

The story still has the couple very much in love and boy they spend most of their time sexing it up.
I think maybe because there wasn't the angst we had in the first two books, that the book seemed to drag.
We do get to find out about things that were never revealed in the previous books, like what Gabriel wrote in that card he sent with flowers to Julia, after he found out she was his Beatrice.
We learn why Simon and Natalie stayed away from Julia.
Most importantly, some of the characters get what they deserve and a few get closure, like Paulina.
I loved that this was in the book.
Yes, she was a bitch, but Gabriel treated her so horribly.
That had to be a part of his redemption.

 photo image_zps28fb86be.jpg

Even though Grace passed on, she still was very present in this book.
She was like their guardian angel.
I loved Richard.
He always had the best advice and there was a very touching scene with him that people might find corny, but I loved it.

 photo image_zps83d4d2e0.jpg

So I gave this a 4 because I love my Gabriel and he made me swoon several times.
Plus I love how he actually did change a lot and he saw the error of his ways in the past and he made a conscious effort to change and make amends.
Plus he LOVES giving Oral to Julia!!! LOL
You will know what I'm talking about when you get towards the end of the story.

That bit at the end, I feel Gabriel almost had a lackluster response to the situation, which was odd. That part could have been a real tear jerker.
I'm sad to have to say goodbye to Gabriel.
He was the first to knock Christian Grey off the #1 spot as my book boyfriend.
He's the #1 hottest bow tie wearing Professor!!!
I realized after reading Gabriel's Inferno & Gabriel's Rapture, that there were indeed great books out there like the FSOG series.
So I will always be thankful to Sylvain Reynard for that. :)

"Don't cry, my sweet girl. You're my Beatrice and my sticky little leaf and my beautiful wife. I'm sorry I've been such a bastard. I wanted to show you how important you are to me. You are my most precious masterpiece." - Gabriel
