About the Book:

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.

Holy bucket of marbles!!! Glued! That is what I have been to my Kindle as I have read this book.  Seriously, the world stopped for me (even though time kept ticking.)  Nothing was more important than finishing this book.

I honestly don’t know where to start.  I am still so caught up in the book it feels like everything that I type might be gibberish.  But I will give it a go…I loved the light that Julia brought to the book.  Her character displays such an open and loving heart that I, as a reader, got caught up in her emotions.  Because of her past, you would think that Julia would be able to be so loving, but she is.  It speaks volumes to her character because this is what touches and pries open Gabriel’s heart.

One name…Gabriel.  I have never hated and loved a character more.  Hands down, he made me furious.  The way he treated others, the anger that tore out of his mouth, just everything about him in the beginning made me hate him.  I was actually rooting for Paul in the first part of the book.  And then it happened; my love for his character came and rushed over my heart.  How he expressed his love through his words, through poetry, and especially through his actions turned me into a puddle of goo.  Once he stopped being a boorish and realized his overwhelming love for Julianne, he stopped at no expense to help her: get over her past, to show her how he saw her through his eyes, who she truly was, and that she really was a light for his world. 

I marked this quote and I feel like I must share it. 
Gabriel: “Being without you, Julianne, is like enduring an endless night without stars.” SWOON!

An absolute must read! There is so much more to say about this book, but I cannot put it in words.  I can only encourage you to read it and hopefully love it as much as I did.
