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.

Bombshell by C.D. Reiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

BOMBSHELL.IS.EVERYTHING. Hold ON to your hats people, while I gush over just how much I loved this book.

First off, NICOLE. Sweet, sweet, Nicole. This poor little girl has been through so much in her short life. She’s resilient, tough, and has the cutest little personality ever. Thrust into her father, Brad’s, arms and also, into the spotlight, her life changes overnight. Cara accidentally stumbles onto a situation, and its love at first sight. For both Cara and Nicole.

Cara is a wonderful woman. She’s just trying to fly under the radar and do what she loves, spend time with, and shape the minds of children. She is steady, a rock. She’s skirted past the dark underbelly of her profession, and its kept at the front of her thoughts. Then she ends up the nanny for Hollywood’s IT boy’s daughter, and the promises she made to herself become so hard to keep.

Brad. Holy.Hotness.Brad. I’d like to take a moment to thank Ms. Reiss for the sexy, single dad, Brad Sinclair. Brad, the dirty talking king and the sweet dad to Nicole. I loved his character. He had so many layers, so many secrets. I loved learning more about him, and watching him court Cara.

BOMBSHELL is most likely going to be on my Top of 2017 list. I got lost in the words of C.D. Reiss. Its so different from her other works, but it still has the complex characters, addicting storyline, and the tone only she can create. It’s on the safer side and I would recommend this to every romance reader. It’s simply magnificent.

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.
