In Hollywood, celebrities live their lives smeared all over the tabloids. So, when baby daddy bombshell news hit the supermarket shelves, life as Brad the Playboy changes forever.
He’s the hottest A lister actor known for his notorious bad boy ways. He has the mansion, the Maserati and enough women to keep his sheets warm each day. What else could the golden boy need? The answer of course is a nanny. They even have agents! Go figure.
Cara Dumont has no interest in becoming “that girl” to hit the tabloids for banging the father. Widely regarded as a womanizer, Cara’s plan is to stay away from the sexy leading man and his drop dead beautiful body. Instead, she signs on as a “temporary consultant” to help him navigate the murky waters of parenthood.
He is set to film his next movie in Thailand and needs to figure out what to do about Nicole. Nicole Garcia is his love child conceived years ago with little to no memory on his part. Sadly, Brad didn’t know he had a child until child services notified him and the tabloids are obsessed with his new single dad status.
What I like about Brad? He didn’t fight the new role as daddy. He accepted it and went with the flow. Unfortunately, like other celebrity parents, he chose to solve issues with money instead of a deeper connection and/or relationship. But you can almost forgive him for the minor flaw when she wants to show her off instead of keeping her hidden away. Maybe she is just the shiny new accessory for the moment, but he is unable to deny the little girl anything she wants. Who can say no to
“zip it, lock it and put it in your pocket”
As Nicole spends more time with Cara, they develop a deeper bond. Soon, Cara is spending more time alone with Nicole and Brian at Nicole’s insistence. She has them both wrapped around her finger. And Brian should thank his lucky stars for it. Without Nicole’s antics to keep them together he would never had gotten to first base with Cara, even though they each try to deny it.
Brian is a wonderfully complex man with some very heavy life issues. I can’t tell you the issues (spoilers) but you will be amazed at his tenderness and vulnerability. Cara is seeking a simple life out of the spotlight and takes a risk with Brian. Nicole’s banter and dialogue is priceless. I dare you to not smile of laugh every time she makes an entrance. She totally stole the show!
BOMBSHELL is a contemporary rom-com about a precious 5-year-old cutie pie who sprinkles her fairy dust and wreaks havoc in everyone’s life around her. It’s a mix of heart, humor and enough action between the sheets and on the tables to remind you it is a CD Reiss book you are reading after all. A slow burner with explosive episodes.
Sidenote | One small bugger is an A-lister Oscar nominated actor shouldn’t be making $3 million on his last film. Did you mean $13 million? *wink*
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…

About the Author

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.
