So, enjoying 50 shades was a surprise and since then I've nothing but romance/love stories.
I understand why people said 50shades was badly written, although personally I didn't really notice (too engrossed in the story).... Now I totally see why... Gabriel's inferno and, this one Gabriel's Rapture are just wonderful. The romantic quotes and verses, the places and descriptions are just beautiful.
I loved the story, although its similar to many I have now read. But Gabriel and Julia are so well written... I was heartbroken for Julia and dreaded what would happen with the story.
My only criticism is that it ended too suddenly... I was expecting a few more chapters. I WANTED more chapters....
I will missed Gabriel and Julia as much as I missed Christian and Ana.
One word for this book; erratic. Some of the content is wonderful, 5 star quality stuff, some of it is annoying, and some of it is actually a bit cringey.
If you've read Gabriel's Inferno, which was brilliant, then I do recommend you read Gabriel's Rapture, because ultimately it is a satisfying conclusion, but be prepared to wince and huff a bit along the way.
****** SPOILERS FROM HERE ******
The fantastic connection that the author develops between Julia and Gabriel. It's astonishing. It's also the reason for so many 5 star reviews.
The literary refernces and the fabulously romantic settings.
Some of the writing and some of the concepts the author explores are wonderful.
What Doesn't Work
Is it me, or was Gabriel so over-the-top redeemed by the end that he seemed meek and emasculated? Some of Gabriel's "caring" was, quite frankly, a bit back-away-slowly-dysfunctional. His behaviour became so over-romanticised that it became a cringeworthy parody of what women expect from a romance rather than a depiction of what felt like a genuine and real relationship.
Some of the dialogue, particularly some of the romantic stuff uttered by Gabriel, was so over-the-top that any right-minded woman would be booking a plane ticket to Paul's place, where at least she could be sure of having a sensible conversation.
Both their behaviour was so baffling at times that even I, who live in a dream world (!), couldn't suspend my disbelief.
The obstacle to their relationship felt really contrived and much of the story was driven by (I can hardly say it) The Misunderstanding. (Wash my mouth out)

Even worse is the fact that this book spends most of its time back-stepping everything that was accomplished in the first. The first book ends with the idea of redemption and the relief of revealing yourself to the one you love and how wonderful it is to love someone openly with no secrets--only to come to this book witch opens right where the other left off, and we come to find that half of the 'soul bearing' elements that took place at the end of book one were lies and half-truths. So not only is this book disappointing, but it ruins all the special scenes from the previous Book.
This is the second book in the trilogy by Sylvain Raynard the story of the love that Gabriel Emerson has for Julia .. it is so real.. totally powerful.. inexorable...irresistible just cannot stop describing !!! Gabriel is tender his love for her is intense and he truly worships her.... Gabriel chooses to sacrifice himself on the altar of love so that Julia's dream can come true....The descriptions of art and snippets from literature and the study of Dante is enthralling... I feel as if I am with Gabriel and Julia as they go from day to day.... another book I read from beginning to end.... so much so that I purchased Dante's Divine Comedy to understand more the relationship between Dante and his Beatrice...
