Contemporary Romance

Review: Flawless – Elsie Silver (Chestnut Springs #1)

The rules were simple. Keep my hands off his daughter and stay out of trouble.

But now I’m stuck with her. There’s only one bed. And well, rules are made to be broken.

I’m the face of professional bull riding—the golden boy. Or at least I was, until it all blew up in my face. Now my agent says I have to clean up my image, so I’m stuck with his ball-busting daughter for the rest of the season as my “full-time supervision.”

But I don’t need a goddamn babysitter, especially one with skin-tight jeans, a sexy smirk, and a mouth she can’t stop running.

A mouth I can’t stop thinking about.

Because Summer isn’t just another conquest. She sees the man behind the mask, and she doesn’t run—she pulls me closer, even when she shouldn’t.

She says this means nothing.

I say this means everything.

She says there are boundaries we shouldn’t cross. That my reputation can’t take any more hits—and neither can her damaged heart.

I say I’m going to steal it anyway.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Not only have I discovered a new favourite author, but I have also discovered a new favourite series as well. Flawless was, well, flawless (to me). I loved every little thing about this book, the Eaton family, and of course, Rhett and Summer.

Rhett is a professional bull rider with a bit of a bad boy reputation. After some (rather hilarious) bad publicity, Summer is called in to help shape up his image and keep sponsors happy.

While Rhett might appear to be the fun-loving, no-cares-given hero, Summer comes across as the opposite. She’s sassy and stern, ready to prove to everyone that she’s got what it takes to take on more responsibility in her father’s business. No nepo baby stereotypes here!

What I absolutely loved about Flawless was the banter between Rhett and Summer. They disliked what they thought they knew about each other. However, the longer they were in a forced proximity, the more they were able to discover who the other really was and just how much they liked what they discovered.

Although, the main story centred around Rhett and Summer, there is a whole cast of other wonderful characters, including the Eaton family, and Summer’s best friend, father, and estranged (in a sense) half-sister.

I also adored the setting. I know it’s meant to be a fictional town, but honestly, I would move there in a heartbeat. The atmosphere just felt so peaceful, even with the Eaton’s antics.

Overall, I adored this story. Chestnut Springs has easily become one of my all-time favourite series and Elsie Silver hooked me in from the very first sentence. This series has been hyped up a lot over bookstagram, and for good reason. It really is that good.

I’d recommend Flawless to anyone who enjoys sports romance, small town romance, and/or contemporary romance. Things to note: (1) the sport in this sports romance is bull riding, (2) each book in this series focuses on a family member finding their HEA, and (3) you’ll probably want to move to a ranch in Canada after reading.
