From New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, a standalone romance about a nanny, a Hollywood star, and a love they never expected.
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…
Bombshell, an all-new sexy and swoony standalone from CD Reiss is now LIVE!
Q&A by Angie & Liezel:
Why did you choose to read this book?
Angie: The blurb spoke to me. Something about a Hollywood stud caught my eye. Also CD Reiss. I haven’t met a book I didn’t like.
Liezel: I love Hollywood Romance and I love CD Reiss…need I say more?
Imagine yourself as a man for a second. If you had a child you didn’t know about, to suddenly show up on your doorstep, would you try to be a good father or say the hell with it?
Angie: If I was him I would probably freak out a lot more. Lol He had the right support system and upbringing to understand what needed to be done. He did the best he could and I admire him for it.
Liezel: I can not even imagine being in Brad’s shoes. I wouldn’t be able to immediately accept something so life changing and I would’ve done exactly what he did in the book. That being said, this was a good reflection of his character.
If you walked in on someone you fantasized about masturbating in the shower would you watch or leave?
Angie: I would watch. The heck with what’s right! If it was someone I constantly dreamt or fantasized about then I’m going to watch and probably record for later enjoyment.
Liezel: The right thing would be to leave but my curiosity would get the best of me. Of course I would’ve stayed and I know anyone would say the same….admit it.
Would you be able to be to survive Hollywood as a nanny?
Angie: If I had to I would. I’m quite good with kids. Hollywood kids though? Ugh.. Can you imagine how spoilt they are? I would probably be put in jail for strangling their parents for raising their children that way. Plus the dad’s. You hear about it all the time how the celebrity dad’s get caught with the nannies. They would hate me. I don’t believe in ruining a marriage even if it means I would be worshipped with money and diamonds.
Liezel: Given the opportunity, I sure as hell would love to try! The thought of living in the lap of luxury would be the draw for me which I am sure I would get over fast. I am certain I wouldn’t last long in such an unreal environment. I would crave the simple life within a few days.
What did you enjoy most about this book?
Angie: I loved the characters!! Nicole stole the show for me. This book could’ve been written all about her and I wouldn’t have cared. I loved her character so much. I also love Brad and Cara. I can’t narrow it down to one character. Each one bought something amazing to the table.
Liezel: I loved the characters especially Cara. She wasn’t by any means perfect but what was great about her was that she learned from her mistakes. She was wise despite her young age. I loved her professionalism. I appreciated how she wasn’t easily intimidated by the rich and famous. I love how she was able to influence – specifically swaying Brad to do what was right.
Was there anything you would’ve changed about it?
Angie: I wanted there to be more drama between Cara and Paula. It left me feeling uneasy that she could demolish a little girl’s legos so easily and also get Brad distracted so he didn’t spend so much time with her. I know Cara is nice but she felt protective over Nicole. I don’t know. I just wish there was more or Paula’s part left completely out.
Liezel: It started off strong and ended strong. There were parts in the middle however that became too lengthy. Otherwise it was great.
Why would you recommend this book?
Angie: I would. It’s a sexy, sweet book that leaves your panties wet while leaving your heart swollen with love. A book of family, love, trust, lies, and redemption. CD Reiss doesn’t fail her fans and I can’t wait to read what’s next!
Liezel: I would recommend it for its depth. The romance was magnificent but to me that wasn’t the most important component of the book. It was that of family. Family coming first. CD Reiss did such an amazing job balancing these elements out.
