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...

If this book were half the length, this would be an entirely different review. I loved the premise and I loved the characters but there was so much down time. So much of the book is just "much ado about nothing". No real drama or excitement or entertainment. Just... eh.
That being said, the parts that were on, they were ON! The chemistry was completely felt between Brad and Cara. I loved them together. I loved Brad's alpha, caveman attitude and Cara's nurturing, gentle heart. I loved little Bombshell, such a perceptive little girl. And I loved how it was all centered around her.
Andi Arndt is always a 5 star performance for me. Christian Fox as well. He brought the steam and sexiness. His voice is fire. Excellent narration from them both.
For me CD Reiss is an A list author who I can 100% trust so when a new book of hers in released I excitedly sit back and prepare to be wowed by the next riveting story.. and she never disappoints. This story shows us a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes of one of Hollywood's rich and famous stars when he's suddenly met by a very present predicament when a bombshell from his past suddenly shows up. And the lengths this star goes to to untangle himself will only delicously tangle him up more.
Brad thought he had the perfect life.. success, wealth, parties, no strings and lots and lots of women - but overnight that changed when a bombshell landed on his doorstep in the form of a daughter - a daughter he never knew he had. Brad tried to embrace his new role of father.. but it didn't come naturally and it didn't come easy. Since his daughter arrived, she hasn't stopped crying and Brad knows he's out of his depth.. then suddenly sweet silence thanks to an unplanned meeting with a Super-Nanny with a soothing voice and a magical touch. Brad knew he had to employ this Mary Poppins of nannies at any cost because, once she's installed in his house, status-quo could resume and then things would go back to normal.. but Nanny Cara had very different ideas. And the last thing Brad was expecting was to lose his heart to a 5 yr old, give his heart to the woman who challenged and changed him and to freely give up his lifestyle.. and his career. Because, like the film, this Mary Poppins of nannies was going to save the father from himself.
Cara has Nannied for the over-indulged and wealthy for quite a while now so she knows the rules of what to do and what not to do to keep her job and her reputation clean but, when she's in the same room as the gorgeous drool-worthy A list actor/party-boy Brad Sinclair, her reaction to him is nuclear. Cara loves her job, loves looking after children and she's been talked into becoming Brad's new short-term Nanny for his sweet 5 yr old daughter - and Cara naively thought she could resist temptation.. but she was oh so wrong. Because Cara would fall in love with a sweet little girl, she'd also be emotionally pushed/pulled as she warred with the dilemma of duty vs chemistry and Cara's heart would melt by the words and actions of her new employer until lines were blurred.. and eventually broken.
CD Reiss has captured the intense feelings of an insta-Father who is clearly out of his element, who grasped on to a lifeline and slowly pulled to reveal a powerful opponent, a caring ally, a nurturing friend, a passionate partner and eventually, after some rocky roads, a loving wife and mother. And the well written character of Cara had deep layers made up of rigid boundaries, high morals, a tragic past and a dirty imagination - everything that Brad didn't need and shouldn't want.. and yet he did. Tensions, emotions and sexual chemistry ran high while all the "I shouldn'ts" played out.. until eventually these two characters gave in, got on the same page, had sexy times, fell in love.. and learnt how to be a loving and complete happy family. And Brad's cute little daughter was charming, darling and so sweet. Dual POV's and the story, together with its characters, were brought to life by the talented voices of Andi Arndt and Christian Fox - they are two revered narrators who always deliver 5 star performances.
Worth a credit? That would be an absolutely and unshakable shout it from the rooftops YES.
