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.

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!
I was so excited when Bombshell popped up on my Kindle yesterday I just dove right in. Yes yesterday, and I’m already able to write this review on it! I was hooked from the first of Bombshell’s 72 chapters! Christine’s writing always enthralls me and won’t let me just walk away unfinished. Each book she writes is more and more addicting than the last and in Bombshell, add an adorable 5 year old into the mix, and what are normally amazing stories anyway, becomes something else entirely. This story has so much heart to it, but also keeps to CD Reiss’ genre with all the sexy and romantic moments we come to expect from her tales.
In Bombshell we meet a nanny to the rich and famous, although she isn't' fond of helping the famous for reasons you will find out in the book, Cara. She is between families at the time and has sworn off all Hollywood celebrities. She will help the rich non-famous out with their children and households, but she draws the line at fame. Brad is everything you imagine when you hear about big time Hollywood heart throb. He's a playboy and has no desire to settle down to just one woman. He actually prefers to enjoy his time with the company of more than one woman. That is until Cara comes into his life in a most unexpected way. Brad has just found out about a daughter he has, Nicole, just a week prior to meeting Cara. When their encounter in a bathroom leaves the little daughter wanting her as a nanny, Brad will stop at nothing to hire the most attractive and best with his daughter, Hollywood has to offer.
Their attraction to each other is instant. She is immediately drawn to him, but knows she has to keep her distance from him. He is so thankful to have someone help his daughter who he has known for just a week, that he thinks about crossing lines with the help shortly into their arrangement. The chemistry and connection between them is just unbelievable and having Nicole in the picture too adds an element I can relate to even more with having a child my own. I love a good romance, but throw in a toddler/young child and I'm a goner! He is great with her the more he gets to know her, Nicole I mean. He falls into the roll of a father, but still holds back and keeps his lifestyle up for a while into the story. Once an event or two happen between him and Cara, he begins to realize his priorities are out of line and need to be adjusted with his new daughter in mind. Cara has a great affect on him and her being around as the Nanny soon feels like more to them all. There are cute and adorable scenes that you just want to cry at, and there are just the right amount of fun scenes also to make this a true CD Reiss book. Her writing is flawless as usual and she has just hit this one out of the park!
