I have to admit, my expectations were high by the time my marathon reading session led me to open book 3 of The Words Series, The Truest of Words. However, based on the first two installments in the series, I never thought for a minute that I would be disappointed. First, its the authors story to tell, and its my role as a reader to respect how they tell it, to open my mind and engage to try to understand the authors intent, and to experience the story the way she envisioned it. Second, I felt ...more

By the time I had my hands on The Truest of Words, I was already immensely invested in these beautiful characters and their journey. Georgina Guthrie masterfully placed Aubrey and Daniels complicated and tension-filled relationship into words.

Guthries writing is so effortless, that as I made my way through this series, I kept

The Truest of Words is a thoughtful, sweet and at times funny conclusion to the angst that is intrinsic in Aubrey Price and Daniel Grants forbidden romance that is Georgina Guthrie's Words series. This series has long been on my TBR and Im so thankful that I was able read the entire series, all three books, back to back, with this final book wrapping up the story in an truly unexpected way.

Told in alternating chapters from both of their perspectives we get a sort of 360

I am so glad that I stumbled upon this series while entering Giveaways on Goodreads. The thought of me never reading Georgina Guthrie's Words series literally makes me upset on what I would've missed out on. After finishing the three books and the novella, I had a serious book hangover. I can't stop thinking about these characters!!! I want to read more about what happens next in their lives. I NEED MORE!

This series had everything; forbidden romance, Shakespeare, and likable h/H. One thing I

NOTE: Unfortunately due to my hectic schedule, I will be unable to make long and detailed reviews like before. However, I will try to do my very best to at least take the time to write something. Brief yet, nonetheless.

This book has been sitting on my TBR-shortlist folder since April 2014. Today, the book finally came out. Yes, I am writing my review of this book on the day of the release because I just FINISHED reading The Truest of Words. I devoured and savored the entire book on its release day!

Its nearly a year since I first read The Weight of Words and had the privilege of connecting with its author, Georgina Guthrie. That these books have resonated with me is an understatement. More than words on the page, the Words series came to life in a resounding fashion Daniel Grant and Aubrey Price are characters that will always inhabit my heart. I loved reading these books and have re-read them and with each time my love for them grows exponentially.

I loved all three books in this series. Georgina Guthrie is an amazing, gifted writer. This final book, The Truest of Words, did not disappoint me. I was wondering how there could be much left to their relationship before there was a happily ever after when I finished Book Two, but the unexpected rifts were there, making for another entertaining story.
Kudos to Ms. Guthrie. I look forward to any of her future work.

Out of the three this was my favorite. It showed how they both matured and are open with each other. Poppet and Sailor are just amazing together. Again, I loved how we saw the relationship grow into an amazing romance of two people destine to be together. Georgina, you have done an amazing job!!

I absolutely devoured this series! Daniel is just amazing, I prayed for a HEA and I wasn't disappointed. The story is engaging, with so many layers and written with a obvious depth of love and feeling. One of my favourites. x

Im desperately in love with you, and I dont care who knows.

Aubrey and Daniel are elated to finally be able to carefully pursue their relationship without worrying about their secret getting out. Daniel is no longer Aubreys TA. With the term officially over and Aubreys graduation around the corner Daniel and Aubrey find themselves being able to breathe a little easier. Still they look forward to the near future when they can walk through campus holding hands,

The Truest of Words is the third and last of Georgina Guthries The Words Series. The first two books introduced me to Aubrey and Daniel. Their meeting, and coming to terms with their new found (if secret) feelings for each other. In the third book, the couple now take baby steps to make their relationship public, amidst the bumps they encounter along the way.

If there is one thing I love about Guthries books, it is the characters. The Truest of Words

For those that may not have read this series, THE TRUEST OF WORDS is the conclusion to the story of Daniel, TA and Aubrey, a senior student in the college course he is assisting. Daniel and Aubrey rub each other the wrong way when they meet, but neither of them can deny their attraction to the other. They fight what they feel and when they realize they can't, the vow to wait until the end of Aubrey's last term for their relationship to move forward. That proves easier said than done, but ...more

The Truest of Words was the third and final book in the Words Series. I have enjoyed every book in this series. I would give this book a 4 stars! This series started out with The Weight Of Words and continued with Better Deeds Than Words. This series was a teacher student romance, and it intrigued me from there beginning and I loved how it ended. There is just enough angst and passion that it will keep you going back for more.

In the first book you will see how Daniel and Aubrey meet under the

this is a short review for the three books together.
overall, i liked this series. what i can say won me over right away was the wit of the characters. the banter between them was fascinating, smart and sooo much fun.
the first two books were i little difficult for me because i felt like they were a bit dragging up until the third one which, to me, is when the real story takes off.
what i liked about the fisrt two was that they held out the sex and took the time

Start the day after they returned to their reality, they cannot be together in the clear, to the world to see them as a couple..would they meet and surpass all the challenges their relationship will bring, now the semester is over?

What a great conclusion for Aubrey and Daniel. In The Truest of Words the couple faced problems that threatened their relationship and they handled them together well. I loved how they worked through things instead of jumping to conclusion and making stupid decisions. They made sure not to misunderstand each other and when they did they worked through it.

I think it's the fact that the first stage of their relationship was all about getting to know each other - the verbal communication

It's been a long time since I found a book so enticing, so thrilling that I stayed up WAY too late reading it, and I was pleasantly and delightfully surprised by the fervor with which "The Truest of Words" pulled me in and kept me reading until the crack of dawn. Aubrey and Daniel's love for one another is beautiful and miraculous to behold; they care and support one another, relying on each other as reservoirs of strength and encouragement whilst at the same time each one encouraging the other ...more

Well this was perfect.


It was everything the last book that needed to be, everything. Both Aubrey and Daniel went through things, separately that made them face the last of their issues so they could be stronger, and while they were both in different journeys they also had this amazing shared story of really slipping into their relationship. It was just...amazing.

I honestly have nothing constructive to say about this book, not one thing I want to complain about. It was

GG has never disappointed me with the Words series even from the beginning. From the moment I finished the first book, I knew this series would be one of those few that I will forever treasure. And now with the TTOW, I couldn't ask for a better ending to Daniel and Aubrey's story. The book was longer than the first two but who's complaining? I loved every page of it. It was simply amazing---from how GG wrote it, to their witty conversations, the emotions, the characters (take note of Patty's ...more

Beautiful, just beautiful! Clever and sexy, the story has a good balance of high and low points, making for an honest love story.

The secondary characters were well-developed, all fitting together to make Daniel and Aubrey's story rich and layered. From Daniel's parents and brothers to Aubrey's friends that are family, each played their role and added so much to their story.

The theme of forgiveness is throughout the story, adding another interesting aspect to Daniel and Aubrey's story.

What a beautiful love story. This is good old fashioned romance at it's best. Aubrey and Daniel (Poppet and Sailor as they are effectionately known) will capture your heart with their story. There are many *big sigh* moments during 'The Truest of Words' as Daniel continues to be such a 'swoonworthy' book boyfriend - total sweetheart! The story also sees both Aubrey and Daniel experience personal growth that tells a wonderful story of mercy and compassion. I was sorry to reach the end and I would ...more

The Truest of Words by Georgina Guthrie will warm your heart and satisfy your desire for romance. I have loved following Aubrey and Daniels journey from first sight to happily ever after. Their connection is playful with a heavy undertone of passion and sexual tension. The exchanges between our hero and heroine always made me smile and further invest myself in their story. From start to finish I was immersed in their world and enjoyed every twist and triumph. If you havent discovered Georgina ...more

I took me really long to finish this novel. Mostly because I didn't want it to finish. I loved Aubrey and Daniel, their conversations, the side characters, the writing, the quotes and what do I say about the covers? They are incredible hard to resist. What I loved the most is that they actually handled problems like adults. I actually saw growth in them as people. The HEA didn't make me roll my eyes and the ship sailed pretty well.

Georgina is an excellent writer. I enjoyed this series so much and look forward to more. I don't like to give spoilers but I'll just say this is a very real story and a fairytale romance. GG's writing is smooth and seamless, you don't realize how much time has gone by when reading. I'm not good at these reviews, but I recommend this to everyone. Excellent, GG.

Nice series, I'm glad there wasn't any issues which led to a breakup and then reunion. It was nice to see the characters grow and learn like people should do in real relationships. Kudos author, I'd definitely recommend!!

“This is something my mom told me once,” she said, stretching the ribbon out between her hands and then tying a loose knot on one end. “Imagine this is your relationship with Daniel.” She handed me the ribbon and pointed at the knot. “This is where you are right now. Untie it.”
I slipped the knot free. “Pretty easy, right?” she said. “There’s a small bump on the fabric, but you can smooth it down. If I’d pulled the knot really tight, it’d be harder to untie, and there’d be a big dent left behind.”
I flattened the ribbon across my leg. “Meaning the more you drag out conflicts the harder they are to recover from, and the more damage they leave behind?”
“Precisely.” “How’d you get to be so smart?”
