Aubrey Price is in the final months of her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto. Bright, witty and fiercely independent, Aubrey works part-time for the college Dean and has her sights set on graduating with distinction. When she meets Dean Grant’s son, Daniel, the TA in her senior Shakespearean studies course, a shared love of the Bard’s works and an instant mutual attraction draw Aubrey and Daniel together. Unfortunately, a strict anti-fraternizing policy, made more perilous by a black mark on Daniel’s record, keeps them apart.
Against this academic backdrop, Aubrey and Daniel navigate their way through a steamy courtship, their forbidden romance aided, abetted and sometimes thwarted by a colorful cast of friends, family and classmates.
5 of 5 The Weight of Words
The Weight of Words is an amazing gem of a read and I am glad Literati Author Services did a blog tour for this book because I am hooked and I need all three books right now to finish the series. I love me some angst books about college students and the TA because listen folks this really does happen in college. I love to read about the ups and downs they face and how it all plays out. This story is so different though because there is so much against them that even though they like each other and it is clear at first to them they try their hardest to stay away from each other.
Aubrey has so much going for her. She is enjoying her college studies and her friends and she LOVES her job for Dean Grant. While working at her job for the Dean she meets his son Daniel who is a TA for her Shakespearean class. As Aubrey and Daniel get close as friends they share a mutual attraction to one another and they try and fight it. First there is that pesky rule of no fraternizing with the staff and then there is the pesky thing called a past and Daniel has one and he does not want Aubrey to find out.
As they navigate through their friendship that turns into a relationship they have to keep it a secret and when something happens to jeopardize their relationship Daniel will fight like hell to keep Aubrey. They know that this is wrong and against the rules but they just can't stay away from each other and the love they have for one another will be tried and tested and only at the end of the day when the dust has settled will you see whether or not Aubrey and Daniel will stay together or will his past tear them apart? This is a MUST MUST MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
