*Beware this review contains spoilers but then again so does the blurb so don't blame me just don't read if you don't want to hear it.*
As the final book in the Cavendish series I really wasn't that enthused over the entire thing. The sad thing is, its written very well and its a great series but the whole fact that Lawrence has this attraction to Rosa the entire time not knowing that she's actually a woman while disguised as a man then he goes balls deep into la la land the second he finds out that she's a woman despite all the dead giveaway's that she actually is a woman yet its insta-love the moment he realizes it?
Okay, so that totally didn't make sense, I know. But that's how it is in the book.
Rosa dresses as a man to finish up some last minute business her now deceased father left behind. Lawrence comes in all haughty as you please snob and a half walking about as if his shit don't stink fights this constant pull toward Rosa while dressed as a man is a ten ton jerk and half most the time he's around her then the moment its revealed that Rosa is really a she or rather she's the one who has been dressing as a man in court Lawrence goes haywire and can't way to get to happy land the second he finds out about it.
Seriously its like he can't wait to rip off their clothes just to pound into her how angry/happy he is about being deceived and it being revealed but can't fight the pull of love the moment he has her. Talk about leading with the wrong brain.
Yet, despite the whole love thing the minor I'm going to punish you for lying deal was total BS... I call BS!!
Why should she have to apologize to him for what he did to her? How is that right?
I'm not calling the sexism reverse roll thing but he's the one who was a complete dick. She should have sent his ass packing not fall all over him in weepy dismay begging for his forgiveness! No! She should have had him crawling on his knees for her.
But that's what irks me about these period girls because they are just so quick to be someones doormat that it makes me want to shred the book to pieces.
In the end Bedchamber Games wasn't one of my favorites in this series I just hope we don't get any repeat stories like this in the future.
Until next time book lovers...
