REVIEW& GIVEAWAY: BETTER DEEDS THAN WORDS: BY GEORGINA GUTHRIE
January 31, 2015
Aubrey and Daniel’s vow
to pursue their dangerous romance despite university regulations takes
them down a path of secrecy and lies. With only six weeks left to the
end of term, they’re under the constant watch of David Grant—Daniel’s
“Dean of Students” father. If that weren’t enough to pressure them,
Daniel’s checkered past also casts a shadow over the young lovers who
continuously tempt fate until one wrong move leads to an inevitable
disaster. Can they salvage a relationship when everything seems to be
conspiring against them?
“Thank you, Daniel.”
“For bringing me here. It means a lot that you would share this with me. This place is obviously close to your heart.”
He pushed my hood back gently.
“You know you’re making quite a home for yourself in my heart too, right?”
I swallowed thickly. Speechless again. I lowered my eyes, but he tilted my face up, kissing me tenderly, his tongue slipping warmly between my lips.
“Your nose is cold,” I said as he pulled away.
“Your tongue is hot,” he whispered.
I leaned into him, eager for more. He pressed his lips against mine, his hands caressing my face.
“I meant what I said a minute ago,” he said. “You’re
all I think about. Sometimes I feel like I’ve known you forever, and
other times you do or say something that reminds me how much I still
have to learn. I wish we had more time together.”
“I know what you mean.” I snuggled into his neck as he held me close.
“‘I have no precious time at all to spend, nor services to do, till you require,’” he whispered. “‘Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you.'”
“You wrote that sonnet out for me a few days before Mary’s memorial service,” I reminded him.
“It’s a favorite.”
“The sonnets aren’t my specialty, unfortunately.”
“You’d better brush up, Miss Price. I happen to know of an assignment that’ll require some attention to Master Shakespeare’s sonnets.”
“Jeez, here we go. On with the TA hat.” I sighed.
He laughed. “Oh, come on, I’ve avoided shop-talk all evening. I’ve been good, haven’t I?”
“I’d say you’ve been very good.” I raised an eyebrow.
“And you, my lovely, are incorrigible,” he said, kissing me withan intensity that made my heart
Erin’s Review If you aren’t cheering for Aubry and Daniel from the first page, well, you just suck. There is so much tension in this book you can cut it with a knife. You feel exactly what Aubry and Daniel are feeling as they wait the long 6 weeks before they can finally go public with their feelings for each other. These two truly do try to keep their relationship a secret. At times, it appears that the stars aren’t in alignment for the couple and you get the feeling that something is going to rip them apart. There is a bit of a build up with a bit of a surprising twist that sets the story apart. Forbidden romance is one of my favorites and add to that one that has two people so perfect for each other, made me love this story even more.
