REVIEW: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

(The Weight of Words #1)

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Purchase: Omnific Publishing


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.
My Aubrey and Daniel:

  * 4 STARS * Review:

How much trouble can it be when you fall for your teaching assistent who also happens to be the son of Dean you are working for? As Aubrey will learn, it can bring a lot of problems and not just for her. Especially when man in question has his own can of worms he is not ready to open yet...

The Weight of Words is truly adorable story! Very witty and sometimes funny too. With forbidden love as a main topic, I was hooked from the very beginning. Style of writing is high-level and it was a pleasure to read this story. The Weight of Words may not be the most moving story, but it is definitely one of the most enjoyable ones I have read lately.

In The Weight of Words, Aubrey is a smart woman and a compassionate soul. The way her teaching assistant Daniel was effecting her was very cute and adorable.

Daniel was very moody in this story and I had hard time figuring him out. He could be grumpy, angry, playful or sweet. He was really trying to stay away from Aubrey, but the more time he spend with her, the closer he was to failing his determination to keep his distance. Moreover, Daniel's character had amazing way with words and he really knew how to charm a woman... Teasing between him and Aubrey was incredible in this story and author wrote it perfectly.
"As he looked at me, his face openly betrayed what his heart was feeling. The wall, the bravado, the persona — it was all gone, reduced to rubble at our feet."
To be honest I have nothing to complain about. Beautifuly written, adorable characters, thoughtful ideas, no cliffhanger. The only thing I was missing was some shocking twist, something that would keep me on my toes. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading this book and I am looking forward to next instalment.
