From the Editor

I’ll admit I’m a sucker for celebrity gossip. There’s something satisfying—escapist even—about getting swept up in the larger-than-life affairs. Bombshell has all the elements of the juiciest celebrity headlines: scandal, A-listers and a ripped-from-the-headlines love story that sizzles with intense sexuality.

When we meet Brad Sinclair, he’s your typical Hollywood heart-throb, but his world is flipped upside down as he’s given a role he never asked for: being a father. After a former fling passes away, he’s left to care for their five-year-old-daughter, Nicole. He’s all she’s got, so Brad vows to give parenting his best, but will he? Brad enlists the help of Cara DuMont, a whip-smart nanny to some of LA’s most privileged kids. She vows to steer clear of her deliciously handsome employer—he’s not a movie star for nothing—but can she?

The story is told through their alternating points of view, but I found Cara’s especially compelling. It’s through her eyes that we get an insider’s look at the life behind the life, a peek behind the curtain. But as Cara becomes entrenched in Brad’s world, it’s equally fascinating to learn just how human he is.

- Chris Werner, Editor

Product description


“Reiss’s delightful, diverting contemporary pits independent Hollywood nanny Cara DuMont against completely incompetent new dad Brad Sinclair…taking all three of her central characters down an enchanting path to a happy ending.”Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A heartfelt contemporary romance that shows family is what you make of it.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Reiss writes a fantastic tale that takes readers into the world of Hollywood’s hottest star. Brad Sinclair’s life is turned upside down in more ways than one; in an instant, he goes from party boy to father. His new nanny, Cara, only wants to take care of her charges and not be looked at as a homewrecker/golddigger. Brad’s transformation is a struggle, with secrets and temptation lurking around every corner. Readers will be rooting for this unlikely couple to beat the odds of Hollywood gossip.” RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!, 4½ Stars

About the Author

CD Reiss shot up the USA Today bestseller list with sizzling works like Hardball and Shuttergirl, but 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 answer, she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, Reiss moved to Hollywood to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from the University of Southern California. Unfortunately, her screenwriting went nowhere, but it did give her enough confidence to write novels.

Today she’s adoringly referred to as the “Shakespeare of Smut,” which she thinks is flattering, but it hasn’t gotten her out of chopping a single piece of wood.

We first met Brad and Cara at the West Side Nannies, supporting her friend Blakely who was being interview for a new position. When “BRING THE WET ONES” the call for anyone looking after children. The meeting with Nicole is when she had pooped herself out of fear of being left with strangers. Cara manages to care and clean the child. Then Brad an A list Superstar who is used to getting his own way hires Cara and Blakely to look after his little girl.
Little Nicole immediately takes a shine to Cara and so does Brad. He falls for from the beginning, but Cara plays by the rules especially after what happened to Blakely. This book is great, the Bombshell from the title is Nicole a 5 year old that has been sent to live with her father after her mother dies. Brad is still in a state of shock not knowing anything about children.
I loved this story, the relationship between Brad, Nicole and Cara was wonderful to watch develop, I can’t recommend this book enough. Come and enjoy another winner from CD Reiss. I’ve already ordered the Audio edition on May 1st, so I can enjoy it all over again.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Really enjoyable read that tells the story of Brad, a hot Hollywood A-lister who suddenly discovers he has a little girl and that he is now her sole parent, and Cara, the beautiful, cool Nanny who he employs.

Brad is struggling with making adjustments to his partying lifestyle and to being the Dad his daughter needs. Cara is one of the best Nanny's in Hollywood -he needs her....in more than a professional capacity.

Brad is a great hero. Imperfectly perfect and despite the odd hiccup he is incredibly likeable. I felt quite protective of him at times. It took me a while to warm up to Cara. She is quite cool and aloof but when she gives in to her heart she shows great vulnerability and in the scheme of things it's Cara who takes the biggest risks in falling for Brad.

Both their backstories tugged my heartstrings. I loved Brad's family especially -so funny and endearing and they totally keep this Hollywood hottie grounded.

Lovely book to spend a few hours with.

This is an entertaining read. I enjoyed it.

Cara DuMont is a character that I fluctuated between liking and being annoyed by her. She works as an agency nanny, but has a rule about not working for celebrity parents. When she meets a distraught five-year-old, her heart melts. However, her father is a completely different matter.

Brad Sinclair is an interesting character. I must admit that I liked him a lot more than Cara. He is a successful actor who has made it to the big screen, is in great demand and loves to party. He suddenly finds himself facing the daunting prospect of being a father to a little girl who he had no idea had been born. After a messy incident creates an instant bond between his daughter and Cara, he finds himself intrigued with the woman and tries to hire her as Nicole's nanny. But she's reluctant, which only increases his curiosity and desire to get to know her better.

I love reading contemporary romances, so when this book was offered on Amazon Prime to members first (before it's release), I purchased my copy. Unfortunately, due to my large reading list, I was not able to read it immediately.

I started to read this book and was quickly hooked. The story is told through the view points of both Cara and Brad. The characters are well developed and lifelike. I loved Nicole. She comes across as a bright and precocious child. I also liked Blakely, Cara's room mate and friend. She is working as a nanny but hoping to get a break as an actor. Unfortunately, due to a mistake in judgement, she finds herself in the newspapers for all the wrong reasons.

This is a rather formulaic romance, but I loved watching the relationship between Cara and Brad grow. As I said above, I found myself annoyed by Cara's character.

Such a lovely, lovely read. I swooned and smiled and loved the characters of this sweet, sweet, beautiful swoon worthy romance about a Hollywood superstar and his unassuming Nanny. Brad Sinclair becomes a newly single father when he discovers a Bombshell in the form of his 5-year-old daughter. With literally no clue of how to care for the child his first task and the opening gambit of this story is to find a suitable Nanny for Nicole a character instrumental in the sweet and lovely factor of this romantic STANDALONE story.

Brad's life as superstar playboy changes beyond recognition which is the clear impetus for the development of his bad boy persona who easily won my heart with his sexy good looks, charismatic charm, flaws and vulnerabilities. He's perfectly matched with Cara, experienced Nanny and all round wonderful human being. Both protagonists think they knew where they stand, know the terms of their agreement, an agreement centred around the well-being of the child, but what neither of them expect is to find love and this is where the story develops so wonderfully and gave me all those highly desirable butterfly feelings. I basked in the fairy tale romance and delighted in the magic of the story arc as it took me on a sweet romantic journey with characters who show the perfect level of development and heart.
