Review: Bombshell by CD Reiss

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…

As a fairly new reader of Reiss' work, what I have read has sucked me in to her poetic world of prose. Each story line is vastly different, yet share similar qualities; one of which is phenomenal story telling through a unique voice that I've become addicted to.

Bombshell is nothing like I thought it would be. No, it was so much more than smarmy Hollywood A-listers getting their party, sex and drug on. Ok... so there was a little itsy bitsy taste of the smarmy *wink* What's romance without drama and angst?

Cara's push to Brad's undeniable pull will set panties ablaze! Everything about this book set my heart on fire, on edge, off the charts! For a sexy little story it's quite complex with wants, needs, feels, and lessons to learn and priorities realized. Bombshell is all heart and one spectacular journey. Full circle.

He was everything she didn't want.
She was everything he didn't realize he needed.
Everything was for her.

Hey, what can I say? Even Hollywood bad-boy hearts knows what they want!

Review: Shuttergirl by CD Reiss

A NEW STANDALONE FROM CD REISS

ONE movie star on the cusp of greatness
ONE broken girl who touched him
TEN years to forget her
A MILLION stories in Hollywood
-----------
I am not hurt.

I don’t need a second chance with him, or a life I thought I had.

While he was out forgetting me to become a movie star, I was building a career out of nothing. A career as a paparazzi, but a career. For a foster kid who bounced around every home in Los Angeles, that wasn’t easy.

This camera is all I have.

He’s nothing to me. Every time I take his picture and sell it, I remind myself that I did it all without him or his approval, his cinnamon smell or his clear green eyes. He lights up the screen like a celestial body, but he’s nothing but a paycheck to me.

He can throw my camera off a balcony, and nothing has to change. We can stay king and queen of the same city, and different worlds.

Except this is Hollywood, and here, anything can happen.

In the beginning of this book I had some trouble getting into the story. Looking back I am not sure why because I ended up enjoying it later. This is a second chance romance story about Laine and Michael. Laine had a rough childhood and grew up in foster care, she didn’t have a lot of friends growing up and some of the other kids made fun of her. The school she attends is where she meets Michael. He was the cute guy every girl in school likes. They strike up a friendship with one another but back then Michael was way too concerned with what everyone else thought of him to pursue anything with Laine. as she was kind of the social outcast back then.

Move ahead a couple years and now Laine has grown into a beautiful woman who has a career known to celebrities as the paparazzi. She loves what she does until one day she finds herself shooting pictures of Michael. Now Michael has grown into the hot, movie star guy and Laine finds she still has a thing for him. Will he return her feelings or will he be even more concerned with what other people think now that he has become famous?

I liked that Laine was sassy. She is not afraid of what other people think. Michael was sweet and a good guy. He wanted to do the right thing and I loved that about him. Their character development was good and the storyline had just the right amount of drama, buried secrets, love and sex to keep you interested and wondering what would happen next.

This was a good story about getting a second chance at love and hopefully being wiser the second time around to not let other people’s opinions get in the way of finding happiness and also overcoming somethings that you may not be so proud of that happened in your past.
