Bombshell by CD Reiss
Publication Date: May 1st, 2017
Publisher: Montlake
Genre: Contemporary Romance


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…


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.

My Review:

*I received an ARC copy of this title at my request and have voluntarily provided this review*
I was so excited when Bombshell popped up on my Kindle yesterday I just dove right in. Yes yesterday, and I’m already able to write this review on it! I was hooked from the first of Bombshell’s 72 chapters! Christine’s writing always enthralls me and won’t let me just walk away unfinished. Each book she writes is more and more addicting than the last and in Bombshell, add an adorable 5 year old into the mix, and what are normally amazing stories anyway, becomes something else entirely. This story has so much heart to it, but also keeps to CD Reiss’ genre with all the sexy and romantic moments we come to expect from her tales.
In Bombshell we meet a nanny to the rich and famous, although she isn’t’ fond of helping the famous for reasons you will find out in the book, Cara. She is between families at the time and has sworn off all Hollywood celebrities. She will help the rich non-famous out with their children and households, but she draws the line at fame. Brad is everything you imagine when you hear about big time Hollywood heart throb. He’s a playboy and has no desire to settle down to just one woman. He actually prefers to enjoy his time with the company of more than one woman. That is until Cara comes into his life in a most unexpected way. Brad has just found out about a daughter he has, Nicole, just a week prior to meeting Cara. When their encounter in a bathroom leaves the little daughter wanting her as a nanny, Brad will stop at nothing to hire the most attractive and best with his daughter, Hollywood has to offer.
Their attraction to each other is instant. She is immediately drawn to him, but knows she has to keep her distance from him. He is so thankful to have someone help his daughter who he has known for just a week, that he thinks about crossing lines with the help shortly into their arrangement. The chemistry and connection between them is just unbelievable and having Nicole in the picture too adds an element I can relate to even more with having a child my own. I love a good romance, but throw in a toddler/young child and I’m a goner! He is great with her the more he gets to know her, Nicole I mean. He falls into the roll of a father, but still holds back and keeps his lifestyle up for a while into the story. Once an event or two happen between him and Cara, he begins to realize his priorities are out of line and need to be adjusted with his new daughter in mind. Cara has a great affect on him and her being around as the Nanny soon feels like more to them all. There are cute and adorable scenes that you just want to cry at, and there are just the right amount of fun scenes also to make this a true CD Reiss book. Her writing is flawless as usual and she has just hit this one out of the park!


About the Author

CD 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.
