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.

**Disclaimer** I received a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review. The views and opinions that I have expressed here are solely my own and are in no way a representation of the views and/or opinions of the author, publisher, and/or distributor.
I loved everything about this book! The characters, the plot, to the overall flow of the storyline!! Everything about it reeled me in and kept me glued to each and every page.
I loved how flawlessly executed the entire storyline was. It was heartwarming, erotic, and downright funny all at the same time. I’m not much into Hollywood star romances especially when it’s about falling in love with their nanny, but CD Reiss made it so much more than that. It was tactfully done and even touched on the bag stigma that comes with a star falling for his/her nanny and vice versa.
The characters and their interactions with each other will make you fall madly in love with everything this book has to offer. Cara came from a military family who traveled around a lot so she understands the hardships of never staying in one place for long as a child. She has a heart of gold and her main passion in life is working with children and being a hollywood nanny helps her achieve that. Brad is a small-town southern boy who made it big as a Hollywood actor. He’s everything you would stereotype a young, single hollywood male actor to be…he parties like crazy, sleeps with random women, and is just living “the life” he thought he always wanted for himself. That is until a feisty 5-year-old little girl comes barreling into his life and then everything changes. Nicole was a blessing in disguise and oh my goodness she was such an adorable character.
“Zip it…lock it… put it in your pocket.”
Brad and Cara together fit and I loved watching their relationship unfold. Cara and Nicole are exactly what Brad needs to be the man hiding deep down..the man everyone back home knows he can be. The chemsitry between them as a family/nonfamily is well protrayed and I literally lived for reading about those scenes. But their chemistry as a couple….well C.D. Reiss did not disappoint. Both are attracted to one another instantly, but kept things professional until..well….they just couldn’t anymore. C.D. Reiss gave the perfect balance between the sexy, steamy scenes and the scenes of them trying to find a good foundation.
“Nicole made me want to be better and Cara made me want to prove it.”
This was my very first C.D. Reiss novel and I have to say I’m hooked. I loved her writing style, the character interactions, and I’m (not so) patiently waiting for another Hollywood A-List novel!
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.
