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.
Oh how I love a teacher/student love story!! Aubrey is in college and is utterly obsessed with Shakespeare. She is starting a new semester and in her new Shakespeare class there is a sexy Teacher’s Assistant, Daniel Grant. Aubrey doesn’t come from a family of money so she has to work hard in school to keep good grades while she keeps an on campus job working for the Dean of Students, Dean Grant.
Aubrey quickly learns that Daniel, the sexy TA, is actually Dean Grant’s son. Immediately she can tell that the Dean and Daniel butt heads and she wants to figure out why. The Dean has always seemed like an amazing man to her, did something happen between Daniel and the Dean..no way, she just really can’t see that happening.
There are interactions in the beginning between Daniel and Aubrey that she thinks he may be feeling the same connection that she is..but then he turns around and makes her feel like he hates her. We quickly learn the reasons for this.
Circumstances happen, communication lines are crossed, and hearts may be broken. When Aubrey finally finds out the reason for the tension between Daniel and his father, can she trust him?
Aubrey has some really fantastic friends that I absolutely loved throughout the whole story. I really enjoyed everyone in Daniel’s family and how quickly they came to really appreciate Aubrey and want her in their lives. I did get a bit annoyed with the miscommunications, but hey..that’s what makes a story. I hoped and prayed for Aubrey and Daniel throughout the whole book and you will too!! I really wish we would have gotten more of an ending. I felt like these just kind of wrapped up way too quickly, I felt like I needed just a little bit more. Another chapter or two would have made me happier!
