Gabriels Redemtion - Sylvain Reynard

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.

To be honest, can the beloved Prof do any wrong?  He's is usual sexy, protective self. Julia is studying, and Gabriel wants them to be a family, but he must research his family first to know the biology of them. What sort of trouble could this cause? Or maybe it doesn't? I'm not going to say here, it's far too exciting! Does he meet his Dad? Ooooh.........

Sylvain has made the quintessential, beyond perfect book boyfriend. He's made his mistakes, he's atoning for them, and truly taking care for Julia because of his love for her. Oh how we all wish we were her. There is the jealous wanna be girlfriend, and ex-girlfriend. Violent ex lover, drug abuser (mmmm Professor you let me down, but at least your making up for it), the steadfast family, and the friend that wants to be more. BUT through it all is the love that Gabriel and Julia have had for many years, he just didn't realise it.

The ending of this book really did make me think, "No, SR wouldn't do this to us...surely?" Again, I won't say what, or whether it gets seen through, but ooooh, is it a heart wrencher, and the Prof is close to hurting people.

All on all, as usual, 5/5*
