My Aubrey and Daniel:

Better Deeds than Words is a story about new relationship, fresh love developing under complicated circumstances. How long will Aubrey and Daniel be able to resist the temptation of being truly together?

I loved all those hot and sensual banters between the main protagonists. Chemistry between Daniel and Aubry was palpable through out the whole story. Author apllied the know idiom "forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest" and made a good use of it in this novel.

Moreover, I can'

I read the first book a few months ago, loved it and was heartbroken to realise that the second hadn't been released yet. So I waited.
And I waited.
I waited so long, I was afraid that the anticipation had been built up too much and that no book could hope to meet such expectations.
But I needn't have worried.

I LOVED Better Deeds than Words. Halfway through reading it, I had the undeniable urge to go to the bathroom (literally the only time I paused after starting to read it)

Better Deeds than Words is one of those books you can’t read fast enough, but you also don’t want it to end. It’s one of those books that you think about non-stop when you’re off doing other “real life” things. It’s one of those books you carry around with you everywhere you go and read at stop lights in the car.

In The Weight of Words you meet Daniel and Aubrey who are fighting their feelings for each other and try to find a way to navigate around the forbidden “teacher/student” dilemma. There a

My thoughts:

I had been waiting for Better Deeds than Words like a child waits for Christmas morning, euphoric with anticipation. The Weight of Words had left me wanting much more of these two characters and I was so happy when I was finally able to open this book.


Oh My God!!! I need a few moments to catch my breath!!!

I absolutely love Georgina Guthrie. I am always impressed with her writing, her Words are beautiful and concise (no pun intended, well, maybe a little bit) :)

Why yes, I did read this book in a day.

It was THAT good. I just had no desire to put it down. None whatsoever. And then I finished it and had to put it down and while it was five minutes ago, I'm already sad to say goodbye to Daniel and Aubrey again.

I honestly don't think I have anything conductive to say in review of this book. I just loved every second of it. I thought it was the perfect amount of angst and worry and tension, mixed in with the perfect amount of romance and fun and everything e

Wow. I've been waiting for Better Deeds Than Words since Guthrie first introduced me to Daniel and Aubrey and the author did not disappoint. Picking up right where the story left off, she took us on a wonderful ride into the next stage of their relationship. It was heartfelt, there was a bit of angst, clandestine encounters, and passion-filled moments. The ending was perfect. Thank you, Georgina! Spectacular book.

Such a lovely book to read - the dialogue is largely well-written, the romance charming and the additional literary touches right up my street. I found Daniel's characterisation to be somewhat unbelievable at times, but I put that down to wish-fulfilment!

Better Deeds than Words is the second book in Georgina Guthrie’s Words series. It picks up the morning after the conclusion of Weight of Words and finds Aubrey Price and Daniel Grant entering a new stage in their relationship. Because of their roles as student and teaching assistant, they cannot go public with their relationship until Aubrey’s graduation; but their attraction and affection for one another is palpable and the countdown to the day that they can truly be together feels like an eter

How pleasing it is to see that good old fashioned romance is alive and well in contemporary love stories of today.

This novel is the second in the ‘Words’ series by Georgina Guthrie and it’s an absolute delightful read. If Daniel and Aubrey’s connection didn’t capture your heart in ‘Weight of Words’ it surely will in ‘Better Deeds Than Words’. The charisma between the two main characters is enchanting.

As the love story unfolds, their liaison is not without adversities. They choose to acknowledg

When I got my book in the mail, I thought I was gonna savor it and read the book slowly to absorb all the words. SAVOR!? WHAT SAVOR? How wrong was I? I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN!!! I carefully DEVOURED the whole book in ONE DAY in ONE SITTING!

3.5/4 STARS

I really liked this one compared to the first book. There was a lot more going on, like Daniel and Aubrey attempting the relationship and secondary factors getting in the way. I liked how they handled themselves and their situations which made for an enjoyable read.

There were some parts that I skim read, purely because it felt a little unnecessary. It was nice reading about a couple actually communicating instead of kissing, or having sex etc. I think it made their relationship str
I love this series! The sequel is just as good as the first book ... both novels have proven to be "un-put down-able." I loved the sense of tension, of wondering whether or not Daniel would get in trouble of inappropriate conduct as a TA. Lots of people know his and Aubrey's secret, it seems, and I was on the edge of my seat just waiting for something bad to happen and for someone to spill the beans and for their passionate secret to come to light.

This was a beautiful, beautiful book. Daniel wa

This was the perfect continuation to the first book. The writing was still as perfect as before, the characters remained three-dimensional and likeable, the pace was still great and the sexual tension, intensity, as well as the romance itself, were off the charts. The waiting between Daniel and Aubrey almost killed me at some points, but the wait was totally worth it.

There are some people complaining that, sometimes, Daniel's romantic nature was just too much to be real, but people! This is fict

I took one week to read that masterpiece.
One week because I wanted to take my time and savour every chapters. I felt sad and empty finishing it. Good books leave me sad and empty. So, I had again a lovely time with Aubrey and Daniel. And I wonder what the last part will be made of.
I should be in Toronto next month. I ll definitely go and have a look at U of T campus.

"ARC received for honest review"

I never expected this second book to be better than the first, I was wrong, This is awesome!

Aubrey is finishing college, the anti-fraternizing policy made a black mark into Daniel's record that keeps them apart. The academic restrictions and politics are putting Aubrey and Daniel in a precarious position.

Their relationship struggles with frustration, love, lust and every emotion you can imagine, making this story an amazing read. I just think this is a masterpiece
Ah, Poppet and Sailor have their moment.

4 Stars. Daniel continues to make me swoon. Throughout all the secrecy, he had pushed the line and risked his reputation along with his father's reputation. Now that his Poppet has graduated, he can love her and not feel like one false move could ruin all of their lives.

I enjoyed Better Deeds (book 2) in the series more than the first installment.

End of term is near, Aubrey and Daniel have to grapple with the last 6 weeks of remaining discreet in their relationship.

Overall book was more engaging for me. Looking forward to the final book.

“Like anyone would fall in love that fast. It’s the whole clichéd love-at-first-sight bit, right?” Vince said.
“So, you don’t believe in love at first sight?” I asked him.
“What, you do?” Shawn piped up.
I tapped my pen for a second. On the spot again. I could tell him my opinion on the matter was irrelevant, but I decided to pursue the question.
“I suppose that depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is knowing yourself well enough to understand what type of person you’re looking for,” I said. “If you know which qualities you admire most in someone, you’re more likely to recognize that person when you meet her…or him. I prefer to call it recognition at first sight.”
I avoided looking at Aubrey, but I had to meet her eyes as she posed another question.
“In your opinion, what are the other factors contributing to this recognition at first sight, Daniel?” she asked casually.
All eyes were on me. “Frame of mind, I suppose. There are times when you simply couldn’t fall in love if you tried because you’re not in the right place in your life. The conditions surrounding the actual meeting might also hold some sway. Certain circumstances seem to set the scene for emotional vulnerability, and you get swept away in the moment.”
“It's okay to let people help you. You don't have to shoulder everything yourself. There are people in your life who love you and want to help you. It doesn't mean you're weak if you let them.” 1 likes
