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.

Let me start off  by saying... I LOVED THIS STORY! Hello forbidden love. I really enjoy a romance that is forbidden, but my oh my do I want more! I kind of hated how it ended. Hated as in oh my goodness why did it stop? I need more! :)

Other than dying for more, this is a beautiful story. I love the witty humor and found myself actually laughing out loud.  The characters are great. They truly bring the story to life. It was a lot of fun to read and I can't wait for the next installment of this series.

Guthrie captured my attention from the very beginning. Many books I read take a few chapters to really get going. I admire an author who can capture my attention from the get go. I have to say my favorite part of this book might be meeting the parents. I was laughing hysterically, yet so curious as to how it would end up. Truly a great read.
