Bombshell stole my heart!! It’s sweet, sexy, heartfelt and at times really funny too. I just knew it was going to be special and CD did not disappoint.
Brad Sinclair, Hollywood’s rising star and bad boy that parties hardily. Yet lives his life strictly regimented by the schedule. When he’s working, there is no time to play but when he plays…he plays hard! But what happens to his tightly, by the schedule routine when HIS 5-year-old daughter is dropped at his front door? A daughter he was unaware of, with nowhere else to go after the death of her mother. Utterly at a loss for what to do, with this little human who is in total melt-down mode and in leaving him in panic.
SOS, Brad needs help!!
Nicole was an adorable, smart, well-mannered, little girl who will completely steal your heart. She most definitely did mine!! It was heartbreaking how she had to endure her mother’s death at such a young age but It was equally amazing how she so quick to adapt to her new life with Cara, Blakely and Brad. Cara was a god send and always had Nicole’s well-being at heart.
Enter Cara DuMont, the nanny extraordinaire. Cara loves what she does but lives by one rule, she does not want to work for single celebrity dad’s again! Especially after what happened to her friend Blakely!! Needless to say, a short-term contract came up to work for Brad Sinclair. It would just be a few weeks and then he and his daughter would be off to work on his new film. So, along with her friend Blakely, she accepted the job. After all it was only for a few weeks!
The one thing Cara didn’t count on was falling for Brad’s daughter Nicole. It also didn’t help that Brad’s titillating good looks, the hint of a spark between them didn’t make it any easier for her either. Nicole was immediately and completely at ease with Cara…. snuggling right up to her. Brad just knew there was something special about Cara.
The way that Nicole and Cara became instant buddies made Brad see and want things he never had before. It made him want to be a better person. It made him want to be a real dad to Nicole. Even if he had a few missteps along the way it became pretty obvious to him just how much Cara brought him calm. She was the glue that pieced the three together.
It also didn’t hurt that Nicole had her own magic going on too!! From her sweet little “shhh’s and whispers to “zip it, lock it, put it in your pocket” how could you not fall in love? It was as though this little girl was playing cupid.
Though the attraction was mutual the more Brad would tempt her the harder it became for Cara to resist his efforts. Only when the line between employer and nanny was crossed would Cara admit to wanting Brad as much as he wanted her. Yet, fear of being tabloid gossip was always kept her from dreaming of a life with Brad and Nicole.
Bombshell is my new favorite book from CD!! I loved this book from the moment I opened it, until the minute I was done. OMG, the epilogue (s)…. they were perfect.
Now if we could just have a little more of Brad, Cara and Nicole my life would be complete!!

Brad Sinclair is our hot Hollywood A-list actor that has been living it up and knows no bounds when it comes to women, partying and all that comes with it.
"...and if I recalled right, they could suck a golf ball through a garden hose. And that was what Brad Sinclair was about. I wanted to be ME again."
But when the "bombshell" lands at his feet in the form of a 5 year old daughter, we will really see what this actor first, dad second will pull out to make his life work for him. Enter Cara Dumont, nanny to the stars. She knows how to raise kids and she seems to know what's best for them. Better than the parents for the most part. She knows the best schools. She has a routine and she is good at her job. But she has a problem with getting too close to those kids. They become part of her life. So, what happens when a job is literally thrown at your feet for 30 days and that little girl has you wrapped around your finger? What happens when the actor shows signs of being a potential good parent? And what happens when that actor seems to have eyes for one of his two nannies?
This is a sweet story and deals with some great subject matter (single dad, dyslexia, etc). It's not your traditional Hollywood story, but if it wasn't, then it wouldn't be a Reiss novel. She knows LA and she knows the subject matter (heck she knows VIP Disney treatment). Her characters had a good connection and she always gives the women a voice and they are stronger for it. They aren't walked on. Cara and Brad were sweet and not the couple you would guess them to be. They fight to stay apart, but what happens after 30 days is up to them, right? If only it were that easy.
I liked watching Brad grow as a person, adult and parent. He had it in him all along, but she just needed someone to push him beyond his boundaries. He recognizes he isn't perfect, and that to me is the best parent.
"My daughter deserved better, but she didn't have better. She had me."
And Cara was the nanny I would hire for my kids. Attentive and full of knowledge and a spitfire for sure. She has opinions and isn't afraid to voice them. But "her" Brad seems to be the person that will bring her down and make all her hard work as a nanny go right down the drain.
"He tasted like a bad decision. He tasted like the thing you always said you shouldn't have done, but didn't regret anyway."
The chemistry is believable, the writing is on point and the story is sweet. Perhaps a little too sweet for me, but still really enjoyable and a great addition to her lighter novels. A win! Let's zip it lock it and put it in our pocket!
