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.

Sunny's Review:

Most of you probably do not know but I do enjoy some of the classical books and while I am not obsessed with Shakespeare I do love a couple of his plays...A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet and Othello are my favorites (in that order).  So this book was nice since the main characters love reading and there were plenty of quotes in the book.

I really like this book because it was kind of sweet. Aubrey is trying to finish school and has to work really hard to get it done. She does not have a lot of money and works to pay her tuition. Her boss is really great and likes her. Daniel comes off as a jerk at first and really not all that great. His description is hot but he dresses like a hobo.  I was not really on board with him at first but as the book goes along and you get to see more of his real side he is kinda dreamy.  I think my favorite part is the fact that they are nerdy enough to flirt with quotes from books as well as use the quotes as communication in more important situations.

I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. I really liked it and think most of you will too. Like I said the characters are nerdy in their love of Shakespeare and I love it!!!
