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.

Aubrey is studying in the University of Toronto, she works for the dean a few days a week. When other kids are going home for holidays and breaks, Aubrey always stays on campus, her mum lives in Vegas.
Aubrey is studying Shakespeare. And one day a new TA(Teaching Assistant) arrives. Daniel Grant is the Deans son, and Aubrey cant stop thinking about him. After a night at the theatre watching Hamlet as part of an Assignment, things start developing between Aubrey and Daniel.
I liked this story. I liked Aubrey's Character. And Daniel was hot. The pace was slow to start and I felt myself wandering. From the 50% mark I read till the end. The story was good, but there are similar stories out there. Georgina does a good job with the Shakespeare quotes.
This is a good read and you will like the connection between Daniel and Aubrey.
I would give this 3.5/5 stars.
