    My first love has always been Christian Grey, hands down.
    I think I am the only reader in the world that did not care for the Professor & his unkind nature at the begining of the book. I for some reason can’t get past his behavior. I enjoyed the books & look forward to the new one….but…. it will always be Christian !

    Gabriel is such a wonderful person, hes so loving and brilliant. I was 100% christian until i read gabriels inferno

  3. Terry

    Both are sexy book boyfriends, but there is a reality to Gabriel’s evolution and self-discovery that touches me in a special and deeper way. It’s still always about love, redemption, and forgiveness — for himself, and others in his life. It closer reflects my own experiences.

    A hundred times Gabriel Emerson, don’t care for the whole 50 shade fad (I read the books). Professor Emerson is my type of guy who isn’t controlling and more importantly Julia’s character is what gives life to Gabriel.

  5. I read FSOG first and loved Christian. But, then came SR’s Gabriel’s Inferno and Rapture, and the Professor stole my heart forever. He’s kind, gentle and would never hurt a woman he loves or any other for that matter. He is masterful in the art of making love. I can’t wait for Gabriel’s Redemption to be published.

    I love them both but what decided it for me is actually the heroin of the series …Julia is just way to innocent for it to be real …10 year olds are that innoocent, not 24 year old women … Anna’s is innocent but she grows with Christian more … I almost feel that Julia uses the innocences as a crutch

    I read FSOG a while back, and read GI immediately after. Didn’t like it. Tried GI a week or so ago and still couldn’t fall in love with The Professor. It’s Mr. Gray for me.

    Por su evolución en estos dos libros me quedo con Gabriel. Todos los protagonistas de estos libros están cortados por el mismo patrón, todos son ricos riquísimos, aunque casi todos proceden de familias desectrusturadas con traumas infantiles incluidos y todos han sido adoptados, son acaparadores, dominantes y posesivos con sus parejas. Gabriel me parece el mas tierno de todos, además su profesión y su especialidad en Dante, me encantan, pone un toque distinto a los otros, incluso me gusta cuando hacia el final del Extasis de Gabriel, se convierte en Edward Cullen, en su empecinamiento de no acostarse con Julianne hasta no casarse con ella…

    I will take the Professor. Bow ties and all. Love him!!
    I agree with some of the other ladies… Gideon .vs. Gabriel would be a harder decision for me.

    This is surprising. Although I like the Professor, by no means is he like Christian Grey. Gabriel is a snob at first with a rich boy attitude. We all know what CG is all about. I think using the face of David Gandy as the Professor has helped emensly. Who would kick him out of bed for eating crackers?
