The Governess Game by Tessa Dare

And the obsession with the historical romance continues…


I honestly have no idea how i never read a historical romance book before now, like???

After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart… without risking her own.
The infamous rake.
Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education—in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling… and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

First of all, this book has one of the most astonishing, inspiring female characters.
Alexandra had her weakness and insecurities, just like all of us, but they belonged in her mind, how she acted and how she carried herself around people, showed nothing but power, independence, and self-worth.
And God, did i love reading about a young, brave women in 1817!
It was honestly so inspiring to do so, yes it was fiction, yes it was so funny, but it was still amazing nontheless.

funny, funny, funny.
Did i mention funny?

the humor in this book was mind-blowing, every tension was just very easy to gulp, they didn’t make anything feel like the end of the world, the story had this ease in it? it was very easy to go through, get into the story, fall in love with the characters.

Chase, Our male character, is just your typical bad boy, with a bad history with commitements, so his side of the story was interesteing but at the same time, i was always eager for it to be over so i can get to Alexandra’s POV.

Im just gonna go ahead and announce that i will definitely be reading and reviewing more historical fiction, it is just too delightful to stop doing so, hehe!
