So Bedchamber Games by Tracy Anne Warren turned out to be a really enjoyable read for me. One of my biggest issues with it was that the beginning was slow and really didn’t capture my attention which had me setting it aside to read later. And I’m glad I picked it up again because going into this story a second time seemed to work for me cause I started to really get into the story. As the story developed so did my interest, to the point that I was really invested to see how Rosamund would pull it all off. The premise really captured my attention with the challenge to the regency society norms.
The fact that Rosamund went after her dreams of becoming a lawyer in 1821 England which was unheard of at the time was great. Yeah the circumstances was kind of forced upon her but she could have let fear and societies norms rule her and said no. But she didn’t, she grabbed the opportunity, built up the courage and went for it and was good, so good that she caught the interest of Lawrence and they stroked up a friendship based on their love of the law and how capable and equal they were at their jobs.
Heck I feel she was better than him beating him at cases which I loved. I loved how it was showcased that women is just as smart, just as capable as men and I really enjoyed that Lawrence saw that too given his privilege. I was really happy he didn’t turn out to be a jerk but challenged and supported Rosamund which ultimately won me over.
I really enjoyed the challenge and drama that built in a steady pace with the suspense. The romance was a slow burn and really well done, making my heart happy. With all of the buildup and the multi level development and their strong personalities, chemistry, and blazing connection this story left me really satisfied.
