The Governess Game Reviews
There are some audiobooks that I wonder if the narrator saves it for me. I say this because the hero Chase is a scandalous Rake and I wonder if I read this I would have found him unredeemable. But the narrator made him come to life and I had so much fun listening to some of the utterly charming things he said wondering if I was reading it if I would have found it charming at all.
Alexandre and Chase literally bumped into each other in a bookshop. Since then she has had some fantasies galore about ...more
I LOVE GOVERNESS ROMANCES
I LOVE RAKE ROMANCES
I LOVE TESSA DARE
This was enjoyable but not as good as the first in series. I wasn’t persuaded by the low self esteem and self loathing of Chase. I also felt the two characters fell in together too easily. That said, the story was a charming one. I particularly enjoyed Millicent’s funerals and thought Alex and Chase made a good couple.
Tessa Dare writes my kind of romance. Her latest book proved that once again. The Governess Game is filled with relatable characters, playful banter, and a swoon-worthy romance.
"First he was merely the Bookshop Rake, but as the weeks wore on, he made a rapid ascent up the rungs of the peerage. Sir Read. Lord Literature. The Duke of Hatchard's."
When Alex Mountbatten ran (literally) into Chase Reynaud at Hatchard's book shop, she had no idea that in a few months time she would be working as ...more
Alexandra Mountbatten can’t get the Bookshop Rake out of her mind after he plowed into her knocking a mountain of books out of her hands and shining his devilish grin at her. Six months later Alex runs into him again when she’s out servicing clocks. She hasn’t set out to become a governess but a mix up throws her into the position looking after Chase’s two orphaned wards.
Chase is a rake, seducing women left and right, trying to forget his deficiencies, and the fact he feels unworthy of ...more
3.5 stars, and read this review with a pinch of salt
I’ll admit that the The Governess Game is the only romance I’ve read in the past few months, besides the one or two other re-reads. But hey, this is Tessa Dare…my go-to feel-good author. So, I decided to pick up a newly released romance book.
If one expects a historically accurate in terms of social norms, time appropriate romance, The Governess Game is the one to avoid. But that’s not really shocking news when it comes to Tessa Dare. And befor ...more
I wasn’t expecting anything other than pure enjoyment and to be swept away by this story and that’s exactly what I got.
I can’t help but helplessly fall in love with the stories Tessa Dare writes. Granted, the characters are interchangeable and they more or less follow the same plot line making it feel slightly regurgitated, but I am hooked on it every single time. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I’d happily read them all over again. These books are my happy place.
