I wish I had an even better way of making sure all readers got that message. :)

Days before the release of Gabe's Obsession I had an epiphany (in the shower no less) or a twist per se that would take what I thought was a finished good book and make it even better. I tried to convince myself that I did not need to rewrite this book. That the story was good as it was. But it wouldn't leave me alone. So I made the decision to change what I could in that moment and then cut the book into two parts so I would have time to change everything else. It was a crazy, maybe stupid move, but I couldn't let it go. As much as I love my readers (and i really DO!), I had to put the story first.

This hasn't made everyone happy, not even me at times. But I still feel like it was the right thing to do. My stories are very important to me and I'm willing to make some sacrifices to make them even better.

As for part 2, Gabe's Reckoning, there is a detailed update going out in my VIP newsletter this week, which will get followed up on my blog and social media. (Including here)

Thanks so much for asking, I apologize for not seeing your question sooner. (less)

It has been a long, rough road getting back to writing this book. But it's almost done. I've been updating my FB group at least weekly with writing updates because I don't want to leave readers hanging anymore than I have to. The minute it is done it will go up on preorder and I will announce it to the world. I'm so anxious to get there. :)(less)

It has been a while since the last book I read by Eliza Gayle. and this series was one of my favorites.
I can't believe how much I missed Tucker, Levi and Mason. Now we have a part of Gabe's story and blew me away.

Secrets are still being revealed with a shocker that I did not see coming. OMG...this is just not a book written around the Purgatory Club and the hot, sexy, alpha men who run it. This is about secrets that have formed these men and helped make them into who they are with th

Love The Purgatory Masters and by far Gabe is my favorite! This storyline is crazy good. Excited to read the conclusion can not wait! If you haven't read any of E.M. Gayle you are missing out!

So I held off on reading this, because I knew we needed the next part to get the whole story. As much as I wanted to read this earlier, I waitied, and now, I WISH I HAD WAITED FOR THE SECOND PART!!! Okay, this was good, so very, very, very good, but the cliff hanger has me all, more now, right now, more please, pretty please?

Nina and Gabe, always around, and playing parts in the Purgatory series, and dancing around each other. Finally, finally, they get together and get a chance at their HEA, bu

I can understand some being upset that this is a cliffhanger but I still enjoyed the book. My kindle has my fingerprints on both sides and my heart racing for the next book even tho I would have liked to have it now. Can't wait

I need more Gabe now!
I have just done 3.5 books of the Purgatory Masters in two days, I am not very good with patience.

We are finally getting to the end of this series with the telling of Gabe (swoon) & Ninas story. This one is more complicated because of the 'family' connection & Ninas real reluctance to explore BDSM, whilst being in love with Gabe, who is a Dom. Between the underlying storyline & their getting together EM Gayle continues to lead you into their world & the consequences.
Gabe is someone you know will take care of Nina in every way (lucky lady). Nina only has to finally decide what to do & when sh

Cliff Hanger

The fallout from Reverend Lewis's sordid, perverse past keeps getting worse. Untangling the truth is a monumental job and now Nina is caught up in it. Unfortunately she can't remember anything about "that night." Gabe Michaels has, after too many years, taken on the role as her protector. Nina has always rejected any of Gabe's advances but now all bets are off. She needs him and he declares that he is the one who will help her put the pieces of her life back together. But more reveal

I am not a fan of cliff hangers but Gabe and Nina's story is worth the read. Nina and her family is keeping secrets that Gabe wants to get to the bottom of. Nina is not a fan of Gabe's lifestyle and only wants to be friends giving her past. But when the truth comes out it is going to devastating! This story has so much drama with its twists and turns, you will be shocked with the conclusion of the story! ...more

As Nina struggles to come to grips with recent disclosures, Gabe suggests a solution that might aid her memory, but is she brave enough to follow that path? It’s a well written story full of drama, angst, some dirty talk and steamy encounters. I’m looking forward to the conclusion of their story and the solution to the mystery that’s been the underlying cause of so many secrets throughout this series.

I read the first three books in this series awhile ago and really enjoyed them. Like I said, it's been awhile and when I stumbled upon Gabe and Nina's story, I was ecstatic! It wasn't hard to catch up on the storyline either. As I was reading, it all started flowing back as the author throws bits and pieces in perfectly. This story has mystery, intrigue, angst and the perfect amount of hotness. Now on to Gabe's Reckoning.. Can't wait to read what happens next! ...more
Doozy of a cliffhanger

WOw! No wonder everyone was so upset with this. A good story, but oh that cliffhanger. I am so glad I waited for the next book to come out. I am off to see what happens.

Gabe and Nina

My mind is blown!!! I've been waiting for Gabe and Nina's story from book 1. This roller-coaster ride of emotions, secrets, control, it's unraveling quickly. We are starting to get some answers, but there are more questions! It's quite a plot twist!!!
Nov 02, 2017 rated it it was amazing

Well written series. It has a story line that includes the spicy sexual dramatic scenes also. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good read to get your hormones wired up before bedtime with your spouse. Just an extra boost.

I just loved this book. It was so well-written that it captured my mind and I was dragged along for the ride. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down until I read the last page.

I've been waiting for this book for a while. It's not up to the standards of the past books in the series and we were left with a cliff hanger but I am waiting with baited breath for the rest of Gabe and Nina's story. Nina has to eventually find out what happen in the missing time of her life. As well as who is lying and what about. Gabe has been trying to help her for a long time. Almost as long as he has loved her. ...more

Needs more proofing

I really wanted to love this. I have the 1st 3 in the series and want to know how it ends.
I got an email from the author, explains why she divided it into two books. And I was okay with it, it's her business, and of course, I want a good story.
But, really, it needed another round of proofing-affect was used instead of effect, more than once, also compulsive instead of impulsive, aside from some spelling and tense issues. And there was a sentence in the blurb that made no sen

I’m a big fan of Ms. Gayle’s, and I loved Nina and Gabe’s story. I do hate cliffies though, and now we’ll have to wait for the conclusion of this Purgatory story to find out what is going on with this couple.

Meh. This was a novella, at best. Hopefully, the 2nd half will be better than the first.
