Publication Date: May 1st, 2017

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
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.
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.

Bradley Sinclair , Hollywood Star , is a man overwhelmed . He has everything a man dreams of . stardom, fame, talent, good looks , two Oscar nominations , a large mansion, countless girls, parties , booze……….and 5 year old girl , he just got facepalmed with!!! Like somebody pulls a cord in the middle of a loud and crazy wild party.
What is a stunned single , overwhelmed father to do ?
Go the Hollywood route and add to the Entourage of starlife…….hire a nanny !
There’s West Side Nannies. An elite, celebrity Nanny services company. So Cara DuMont gets hired as a Celebrity nanny .
“And that’s exactly what a celebrity nanny is. Not only is she attractive but she’s great with the kids. She does all the things the dad associated with his normal upbringing, which is likely the upbringing he promised himself he was going to give his children. The nanny represents that failed promise. She kisses boo-boos, packs lunches, cooks what the children like, and sits to eat with them. His wife is usually in the business as well, and travels, works all hours, and manages a business team as well as the household team. She represents all the dad’s failures as a father, because she’s juggling everything but the children.”
She’s determined and focused solely on Nicole Garcia Sinclair. An adorable , well mannered , lost girl and Cara brings calm in both of their world. But her world turns upside down . She becomes the much needed glue in the Broken and awkward relationship between the new dad and confused child.
“if you break a vase and glue it back together, it’s bigger after it breaks? The glue takes up space. The cracks add to it.”
She tries and succeeds in blending in the background of Hollywood spotlight that always follows the stars. Standing just over the edge in the darkness , keeping an eye on the stars’ accessory kids. The problem is , Cara gets invested in the kids and Brad gets invested in her.
It was so interesting to see the celebrity life BTS look in this story. Couple of years ago there was a scandal involving Ethan Hawke and his Affair with the nanny Ryan, where he married her.
MAYBE this story was inspired from there, I don’t know, but I can say for sure, matters of the heart rarely travel on a straight and easy path .
The story is simple , the progression natural and predictable . But the difference between Reiss and other authors , in treatment and narration , is Planetary . She not only paints a vivid picture, she exquisitely embellishes the thoughts and emotions with just the right amount of words.
Not more , not less. Just right!
I’ve never read a kiss being described so truthfully !!
“He tasted like a bad decision. He tasted like the thing you always said you shouldn’t have done, but didn’t regret anyway. A little bit of starlight. The tart sting of the forbidden and the sweetness of a sin you think you’re getting away with.”
And that’s where she justifies the title of Shakespeare of Smut. Though TBH I cringe at the genre. There’s hardly any smut. Her writing is purely romantic , intermingled with Sass.
There’s no lip biting virgins, no alpha with OTT endowments or “you’re so tight, you’re wet for me,I was moist and throbbing” cliches you read in cookie cutter romances all around.
The story has a heart, it has a soul and I could feel it so bad that I ended up pitying Paula , where I was supposed to hate her. Cock-blocking kids, stolen moments of passion, real life travails, a haunting secret that Brad has that almost tears them apart , and the reason why , all these make a very authentic story of a very starry lifestyle couple .
I am a hard core Reiss style of writing. Nobody writes like her .
The scene in Disney resort , was so hot and pulse pounding ….. “My hormones rushed through my blood like marauders setting the village on fire.”
See what I mean !
Always such a JOY reading her books. It’s like after a long dry drive, you come back to the manicured gardens of your home. You can smell the fresh grass and the contentment you feel is what I feel reading her words. Smell, breathe deep and feel the story seeping in ❤
