Bombshell by CD Reiss
Publication Date: May 1st, 2017
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’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.

Bombshell will keep you within its grips and will not let you go until you are done with the last sentence! I am serious. This was a great weekend read. I love C.D Reiss books and I already know that once a new book comes out by her, I will already love it. Bombshell was da bomb!! It has a unique twist with romance and drama mixed together.
Bombshell is sexy, funny, and has a lot of heart between the growing pains of becoming a father. Brad is my new love. He worked so hard to become a Hollywood A-Lister. He had a hard life growing up and never wanted to go back. That does not mean he did not have a good family back home. He has the best. He loves the parties, the woman, the booze, and having as much sexy time that he can get. Until a sweet and unexpected surprise came knocking at his door. A tiny little Bombshell that he finds out is his daughter. This little girl was too cute! And when the story starts off with poop everywhere and a tantrum, you know you are in for a long ride!
Cara is a professional Nanny. Her company is trying to help Brad hire one for his 6 year old daughter. Believe me he needs all the help he can get. I loved how Cara stays away ( or tries to) from all the single Hollywood dad drama. Her best friend had to learn the hard way. So she is very reluctant to work for Brad. But the little one steals her heart and she agrees to help for a month only. Cara is loving, dependable, and knows her way around children. She soothes their soul and loves with her all. When it comes to relationship, she can be very bad and feisty behind closed doors. I love that she has all of these facets. Brad has it in for him when she resists his sexy charms. These two are in for a full ride trying to cope with the newest addition. I can imagine how hard it is for a little girl having her life changed so abruptly.
Cara helps Brad become better. She makes him open his eyes and for the first time man up to his responsibility. I love that Cara does this to Brad. But she only has a month with these two and Brad holds some very big secrets. With jealously, lust, and drama will they eventually come out? Will it destroy what little trust Cara has for Brad? The feels were all there in this book! I loved it and can not recommend it enough! Thank you C.D. Reiss for bringing us another great novel!
About the Author
