Book Review – Bombshell (Hollywood A-List #1) by C.D. Reiss

OMG – this book was AWESOME!!!!!




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…

Even so I have read other nanny-employer books – Bombshell (Hollywood A-List #1) by C.D. Reiss tackled  the trope in a very refreshing way.

L.A., celebrities, nannies – the topic is as real as the book depicts it. Trust me I speak from experience. It’s as over the top, as extravagant and as ludicrous as described. I think that’s why I had SO MUCH FUN reading this book. Because it was so entirely true.

Bombshell had me cracking up!!!

I loved the unique approach, and the slow burn that slowly turned into an inferno. Cara DuMont took her job seriously but she also realized the attraction that she felt towards her employer wouldn’t just dissipate. And Brad Sinclair acknowledged that he liked the looks of his nanny but he didn’t intent to do anything about it. They both had genuinely good intention of not letting it grow into something complicated. And kept it professional until one fateful night.

I really liked that they fought their attraction and tried to keep it professional – until they buckled under the weight of their lust for each other and sexual frustration.

Brad Sinclair was wonderfully delicious, straight forward, a bit overwhelmed with his newest responsibility but also genuine in his feelings toward fatherhood.

Cara DuMont, a wonderful nanny and a level-headed, down to earth kind of women, told it how she saw it. She’s seen and heard everything by then, experienced all kinds of arrangements and situations that were a norm in celebrity families – nothing could faze her anymore.

I loved Brad and Cara’s genuine connection, it wasn’t all physical. They bonded over Brad’s daughter, presented an united front, and weathered ups and downs like grownups – ok plus a little drama. 😀

Bombshell was absolutely a ‘my kind’ of story.

I was grinning, chuckling and laughing out loud. I was shaking my head and grinning from ear to ear – all in all I had a fabulous time.

This novel was everything I could have hoped for in a book — a TOP FAVORITE and an immediate recommendation!!

Even so this book is the first book in a new series called Hollywood A-List – the characters from  ShutterGirl (The Hollywood Project, #1) made an appearance – and if you liked ShutterGirl as much as I did you will love Bombshell without a doubt.

I’m coming straight out and say I LOVE this series. And I can’t wait to read more about Hollywood A-List!! Bring it ON!!
