I'm sorry to be a braggy cunt, but yes, I already got my grabby hands on this. To be fair, I did request this book be written about five seconds after meeting Brad in Shuttergirl so it's only fair. I'm still all swoony and smiley and a little flushed and I'm sorry you have to wait until May 1st but you do & it will be so worth it.

Absolutely excellent. I wasn't even planning on reading this book because I'm not really into heroes that are Hollywood stars! But I got an early copy and I thought I would take a peek at it, and that peek turned into the ENTIRE book read in a day(ish)! It's amazing. Also, have I mentioned how impeccable C.D. Reiss writes in previous reviews? If not, I have to say it again. There is NO ONE who writes quite like her. It's so crisp and fluid and dire

Sigh. Where to begin?

Bombshell had much potential; however, the premise of an ordinary girl falling for her "movie heartthrob" of a boss has been done before and with much better results, imo.

He was as beautiful as ever, but starkly human. Flawed beyond belief. Emotional and broken. He needed me to fill his empty places and in letting me do that, he filled mine.

She had to know who I was. She had to see me because I’d opened myself to her. I hadn’t opened up to anyone, and I realized how much I needed her to see that. To know that she stood inside the open door of my heart.

Such a lovely, lovely read. I swooned and smiled and loved the characters of this sweet, sweet, beautiful swoon worthy romance about a Hollywood superstar and his unassuming Nanny. Brad Sinclair becomes a newly single father when he discovers a Bombshell in the form of his 5-year-old daughter. With literally no clue of how to care for the child his first task and the opening gambit of this story is to find a suitable Nanny for Nicole a character instrumental in the sweet and lovely factor

Brad Sinclair is a Hollywood movie star who just got a beautiful and crying five-year-old little girl: his daughter Nicole who he didn’t even know existed. Between woman and parties Brad doesn’t even know how he took care of himself throughout the years, so taking care of a kid is definitely not one of his talents. Giving that, his only option is to get a nanny who will do the work for him.

Cara DuMont has been a nanny for a few years and her biggest fear is to end up as a joke at a magazine cove

I love Hollywood love stories!!! I know....GROUPIE!!! Which girl hasn't dreamt about meeting a famous and gorgeous movie star who falls in love with her and they live HEA.....oh hell....I'm one of those girls!!!! So, it goes without saying that the story of a famous movie star falling in love with his daughter's nanny was just up my "alley"!!!!

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!!!

Nanny and single dad romance will never be the same!

If you’re looking for a nanny and single celebrity dad romance that is WAY WAY beyond taboo smut, then Bombshell is 100% what you are looking for. A great story that will keep you hooked until the very end. The angst is pretty simple, and honestly it involves things that anyone who follows pop culture has seen before. All in all a great extremely well written read!

CD Reiss is an exceptional writer. She has finely tuned her craft and creates works that are sophisticated, smart, sexy, and engaging! Bombshell is completely different from her previous works I've read, but not less entertaining. It's one of my new favorites!

CD Reiss is such a versatile author who continues to deliver stories that leaves readers very satisfied and craving for more of her sinful prose. And in her latest new release,Bombshell Reiss does it again as she slays romance fans with her sexy, intriguing, palpable and oh so swoonworthy love story between a single Hollywood dad actor and his daughter’s nanny.

Someone needs to buy the movie rights to this book and hire Ryan Reynolds, like, yesterday. Maybe Ryan is a bit too old now, but that’s just minor details. Funny, sexy, snarky: all the words ending in “Y” to describe a good book. It was fast paced and kept me reading 'til the wee hours.
Honestly speaking, I don’t think CD Reiss can do any wrong at this point in her writing career. Every new book is better, smarter, and more in-depth than the one before it. Never losing the

There are four things you can be sure of in life – death, taxes, grey pubes and that when you read a book by CD Reiss it will be awesome. I love picking up a eagerly anticipated story to find that it was everything I wanted and then some.

Bombshell had me at ‘Wipes.’ It may have been set in a world of the rich and famous but nothing felt far fetched, I’m sure that there are plenty of stories shared amongst people nannying for the self entitled and over indulged. In the beginning we are shown that

I tried. Even after realizing as early as the 5% mark that this was so far from what I had loved about Reiss from MARRIAGE GAMES, I continued on. Yes, it's a different genre (sorta, erotica vs BDSM), different set-up, completely different circumstances, but surely that same emotional intensity would be present even if the players were not remotely similar?

2.5 Bombshell Kind of Bomb for Me

This is my first C.D. Reiss read and it won’t be my last. Look, I liked her writing style, it flowed and it was easy to follow, but I didn’t like the characters, especially the Hero.

I did the audio version of this and I LOVVVEEEEEE the female narrator, Andi Arndt. I kind of stalk her audio books because she always puts me in a happy place when I hear her voice. Even though I wasn’t jiving with this book, I enjoyed it more because of her. As for the male narrator

What a crazy ride! You know those books that start off in crazy town and you wonder what the heck you are reading? The more you read, the more you're thinking to yourself that maybe this just isn't the story for me. Yet I just can't stop reading it, I gotta see where this is going.

It always amazes me how an author can turn a book around. It's happened before, yet it still shocks me when it happens again. This is one of those books! It's the reason I try not to give up on them. I absolutely love

When nanny Cara DuMont takes on the temporary position of taking care of Hollywood bad-boy Trent Sinclair's newly discovered five year old daughter Nicole she is determined not to get involved and be the cliche "Nanny falls for big movie star" kind.

that is so special that even they don't know how to handle it. I absolutely loved this book, the characters were so intense and emotional you could feel them struggle with their feelings radiate from
