About the Book:

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:

Bombshell (Hollywood A-List, #1)Bombshell by C.D. Reiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bombshell by C.D. Reiss is the first book in a brand new series, Hollywood A-List. With a dual POV between the two main characters, Cara DuMont and Brad Sinclair, the story is a whirlwind of ups and downs.

Cara is a strict professional. She learned young not to rock the boat and what mistakes not to make. She loves to take care of children but has her limits and being nanny for a celebrity single dad is a hard-limit for her. Circumstances being what they are, however, find her in the position of being one of two nannies for Brad Sinclair, Hollywood's golden boy and a notorious player. Having just had his five year old daughter, of which he was previously unaware, dropped in his lap, he is in desperate need of all kinds of help.

Cara was a strong character with two very different sides. She has the professional side which demands she be ONLY a nanny and act appropriately, but she is also a woman and when a man like Brad Sinclair is beyond determined to own you in every deliciously sinful sense of the word it is difficult for even the most steadfast to say no. What Brad discovers is that when the nanny persona is gone and the real Cara surfaces, she is everything he never knew he wanted in a partner and lover and mother to his daughter. Now if only that side of Cara would stay around for more than a few minutes at a time, oh, and the paparazzi and their cut-throat games and the potential career wrecking he's about to cause in Cara's life...


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.
