Author: Sylvain Reynard
Title: Gabriel’s Redemption (Gabriel’s Inferno Series #3)
Publisher: Penguin Berkley

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 her 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.

*I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

First, I’m going to say I was a little skeptical about this third book, because, for me, as a reader, the story between Professor Emerson and student Julianne was over in the second book, but I gladly admit I was wrong, this was the conclusion I was waiting for, everything, since the first letter to the last it was absolutely AMAZING.
In this book we see this couple grow, as individual, as couple, as persons. We read how their relationship strengthens no matter how hard the time gets, if Gabriel and Julia are together, everything is going to be fine.

What I loved the most in Gabriel´s Redemption was we were getting to know more about Gabriel's past. I think it was absolutely necessary to know about his past, where he was standing, next to he was standing, what things he used to do when he wasn’t in a relationship with Julia. One thing I adore, is the fact he finally get some answers about where he came from. While I was reading this chapters, I could feel Gabriel struggle for everything, I could feel his pain, his confusion, Sylvain did a really good job transmitting the feelings from this character.

Julia was a completely different story, I love this character, I really do, I love the idea she set a goal and she’s in the pursuit of it, she’s making her own path. Julia is so strong, she helped Gabriel to heal, Julia is mature, but in this book, sometimes I wanted to slap her in the face and I thought “Oh, god! Why did you said that? Apologize to Gabriel right now, you stupid girl!” But Gabriel, God bless you Professor Emerson for being so comprehensive and caring and so beautiful inside. I understand sometimes you have to be selfish in your goals, but if you’re sharing your live with someone, you have to be open to different ideas, but Julia was only focused about getting a Master, but sometimes things doesn’t go as it was planned and you find yourself following a path it was never in your mind, and this was the case of Julia.

I couldn’t believe it was possible to love Gabriel more than I did, but is possible, because he’s so perfect, ok, Gabriel may be not the greatest man in the world but he care about the ones he love, he protect them, and that, for me, that is a perfect man.

The last few chapters were stressing, some people would say sad, but I loved it! They were perfect, and it showed how deep Gabriel loves Julia, it show how much he loves her, I couldn’t ask for a better end, it was absolutely perfect!

Now, I have to say good bye to one of my favorite characters ever, Gabriel Emerson, but I’m happy he finally healed and he got the happily ever after he deserved. Thanks Sylvain for giving us such an amazing story, and keep us captivated the whole time.

I'm interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition - particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.

I'm also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex's Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.

Primero que todo quiero decir que estaba un poco escéptica acerca de este tercer libro, para mí, como lectora, la historia entre el Profesor Emerson y la estudiante Julia terminaba en el segundo libro, pero admito que estaba equivocada, esta era la conclusión que estaba esperando, todo, desde la primera letra hasta la última fue absolutamente impresionante.

En este libro miramos a ésta pareja crecer, como individuos, como pareja, como personas. Leemos como su relación se hace más fuerte no importa lo mal que sea el tiempo, si Gabriel y Julia están juntos, todo va a estar bien.

Lo que amé más en Gabriel’s Redemption fue el hecho de que llegamos a conocer más acerca del pasado de Gabriel. Yo creo que es absolutamente necesario conocer acerca de su pasado, de donde viene, qué cosas hizo cuando no estaba en una relación con Julia. Una cosa que adoré, es el hecho de que él llega a tener algunas respuestas acerca de dónde vino. Mientras leía estos capítulos, podía sentir la lucha de Gabriel por todo, pude sentir su dolor, su confusión, Sylvain hizo un excelente trabajo transmitiendo los sentimientos de este personaje.

Julia fue una historia completamente distinta, amo a este personaje, realmente lo hago, amo la idea de que ella se propuso una meta y está trabajando duro para conseguirla, ella está formand su propio camino. Julia es tan fuerte, ella ayudó a Gabriel a sanar, Julia es madura, pero en este libro algunas veces quería golpearla en la cara y pensaba “¡Oh, dios! ¿por qué dijiste eso? Discúlpate con Gabriel en este mismo momento, tú, chica estúpida” Pero Gabriel, Dos te bendiga Profesor Emerson por ser tan comprensivo, y cuidadoso, y tan bello por dentro. Yo entiendo que algunas veces tienes que ser egoísta en tus metas, pero si estas  compartiendo tu vida con alguien, tienes que estar abierto a diferentes ideas, pero Julia solo estaba concentrada en obtener una Maestría, pero algunas veces las cosas no van como estuvieron planeadas y te encuentras siguendo un camino que nunca estuvo en tu mente, y este fue el caso de Julia.

No pensé que fuera posible amar a Gabriel más de lo que yo hacía, pero es posible, porque él es tan perfecto, está bien, Gabriel puede no ser la mejor persona del mundo, pero él cuida a los que ama, los protege y para mí, ese es el hombre perfecto.

Los últimos capítulos fueron estresantes y algunas personas podrán decir que fueron tristes, pero yo los amé. Fueron perfectos y mostraron que tan profundo Gabriel ama a Julia, que tan enamorado está él de ella, y no pude pedir un mejor final, fue absolutamente perfecto.

Ahora tengo que decir adios a uno de mis personajes favoritos, Gabriel Emerson, pero estoy feliz de que él finalmente sanó y tuvo el feliz por siempre que se merece. Gracias Sylvain por darnos una historia increíble, y habernos tenido cautivados todo el tiempo.
