The Governess Game by Tessa Dare (Review)

The Governess Game was a pretty good read. I did enjoy this story a lot, but The Duchess Deal was way better. Don't get me wrong this was a fantastic read, and Tessa Dare does an amazing job with the banter between these two. However, I think the stars of this book would have be Rosamund and Daisy along with Daisy's doll Millicent. Seriously, that was hilarious. They would have a funeral everyday for Millicent. That was too much, but so good. However, Chase took it like a chance. He was given guardianship over Rosamund and Daisy, and he's trying to make it through until they can send them away to school after all he's a horrible example of a guardian. He stumbles upon Alexandra Mountbatten who he mistaken as the governess.

Chase basically believes he found the perfect governess, but slowly finds out he was totally wrong. However, he's stuck with her, and her unorthodox ways of teaching. Again, she's not a governess, but a clock tuner. Chase basically has closed off his heart to everything, so Alex is going to break through his wall.

Yes, The Governess Game is like your typical aristocrat wanting the governess story. At the same time there are little quirks that make it a little different. For instance, the death of Millicent. I'm telling you that's hilarious, the ways she dies. We see deep down that Chase has a heart, but is fearful of letting it out. After all bad happens when he's suppose to care. Overall, The Governess Game is a pretty good read. I had a good time, and I can't wait for of this series. So, if aristocrats and governess are your thing, you are going to enjoy The Governess Game.
