Book Review for Bombshell by CD Reiss




Hollywood bad boy Brad Sinclair always gets his way, whether it’s the role he wants or the bikini-clad model he has to have. But when a bombshell gets dropped in his lap in the form of a dimpled five-year-old from a forgotten relationship, he knows his life is about to change forever.
Cara DuMont isn’t exactly thrilled when she gets assigned to be the nanny for the latest box-office king. She has one rule: no celebrity fathers, especially single ones with devilish good looks and rock-hard abs.
But as soon as Cara meets Brad and his adorable little girl, she knows she’s in for a world of trouble. Because there’s something about the way Brad looks at her that makes her believe that some rules are meant to be broken…

I sometimes don't even understand myself, especially at moments like this when I realize CD Reiss should have been added to my go-to, one-click and authors I need to read now list a long time ago. I have read a few books by this author and not once have I been disappointed.

In Bombshell, I felt as if I was getting an up and close personal inside scoop of Hollywood's rich, famous and their nannies. These characters grabbed me from the start leaving me wanting more and never wanting this story to end. I loved every moment that I ended up lost during my reading time.

Off Limits and plays by the rules nanny Cara DuPont has us falling in love with her right from the start. Cara's love and patience with children tugged at my heart and her very first meeting with 5 year old Nicole, who finds herself in the spotlight of having a very famous father after the death of her mother is so stinkingly cute. The attraction for the little girls father is felt right from the start. Since Cara does not handle Hollywood Stars children it would not be a problem, she will never see the Brad Sinclair again. That is until, she is being requested to nanny for the Sinclair Family. Will she be able to handle her fear of the tabloids, her fantasy's of this single father and stay true to her nanny rules... especially the one that says "Don't fall in love with the kids and their dad"?

Brad Sinclair is known for his partying ways and his love for women, what's going to happen now that life has thrown him a curve ball in the form of a sweet little 5 year old daughter? First he needs to hire a team of professionals, that's where nanny Cara DuPont comes in and hiring her will be the hardest and best thing he has ever done. Brad will have you wanting to pull your hair out with his attitude, but he will also win over your heart. 

Bombshell is packed with drama, deliciously sexy moments that will send tingles right down your spine, secrets and lies, the feeling of being in the front row of witnessing three people falling in love and allowing the media, fear and others to almost tear it apart. It all comes down to how much is Brad willing to keep and let go of himself and if Cara is strong enough to handle Brad's past? Will the love of one little 5 year old be enough to change her father's old ways and have a nanny break her own rules? 
 I am screaming 5 Must Read Stars!!!

The front door opened. I expected a housekeeper or butler, but it was the actor himself. I hadn’t forgotten how beautiful he was; I’d just chosen not to think about it. “Ma’am,” he said. Southern boy. Parents together. Christian elementary. Public secondary. Two years at USC Drama. Dates his costars for a month after the wrap party, then moves on. Poring through the trades and making calls, I’d discovered he’d spend at least eight of the next twelve months overseas doing action movies, but most had postproduction in town. “Mr. Sinclair,” I said, holding my hand out. “Nice to see you outside a bathroom.” He shook my hand. I’d shaken plenty of famous hands attached to gorgeous men, but my imagination was sparked by the way his fingers slid against mine to grasp them and the way our palms pressed together. My mind clouded over with ripped sheets, hard muscles, and soft skin. “Pleasure’s mine,” he said and my brain skipped like a trip on a cracked sidewalk over the word pleasure. He didn’t give me the oversincere hand-over-clasp to show me how damn happy he was to see me, but there was something intimate about that half a second. Just a consultation. I followed him into the house. Dora Donovan had designed it. Looked like her with her faux-midcentury white couch and shag rug. That wasn’t going to work with playdates unless he wanted to keep an upholsterer on staff. We went through the living room to a smaller room with a pool table smack in the middle. It had a stained glass Budweiser lamp over it and was racked for nine-ball. Dora Donovan had nothing to do with this room, for sure. “Wanna sit?” He held a chair out for me. The glass-topped table was just inside the open patio doors and was set with iced tea. I sat. “I’m not a date,” I said kindly, indicating the iced tea setup. “Just so you know. You don’t have to do things like hold the chair for me.” “Habit, I guess.” He sat opposite me. “Chivalry is nice. But with the nanny, whomever you hire, it can be misconstrued.” He smirked a little, as if misconstruing his own thoughts. I cleared my throat and pulled my jacket closed.

About the Author

_21A6258_pp-fbCD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
