Top 5 reasons you shouldn’t date a Hollywood Superstar by CD Reiss + Giveaway
THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER. THE PUBLICIST IS PICKING THE WINNERS AND WILL CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY.
Brad Sinclair isn’t even 30 yet, but he’s already a hot commodity in Hollywood. He is pure, raw star talent. He also doesn’t realize he’s miserable. The schedule is killing him and though he has a rep as a party boy, what’s only because on his rare weeks off, he goes overboard.
Cara is a Los Angeles nanny who doesn’t mind working for producer, directors, and bankers, but she has no desire to be tabloid fodder. She avoids single dads and celebrities.
We know how that goes, of course.
Top 5 reasons you shouldn’t date a Hollywood Superstar:
1) They work too hard.
I know. It looks so easy, right? All they do is go to the best parties and show up to say some lines. Nothing could be farther from the truth. They have workaholic hours and very little downtime. When an actor says he can’t do something because of scheduling conflicts, it’s true.
2) They’re obsessed with their looks.
If you had your nose blown up 100X on a screen in front of millions, you’d make sure that blackhead was gone too.
I talk about this in Shuttergirl. The paps are just doing their job, but all your doing is trying to kiss your boyfriend. Annoying. Worse than annoying. I’ve seen these guys run in front of moving vehicles to get the shot. It’s scary.
He loves you. He loves only you. You don’t even have to be the jealous type to want all those girls to stop weeping and wringing their hands whenever he waves at them.
5) Famous friends.
He’s not going to have much in common with a normal guy, so he makes friends with other actors, and they’re not always nice people. Sometimes they’ve let it all go to their head. Those people can’t hold a conversation. You’ll want to bang your head against the wall.
6) ADDING: Name-dropping. Ego-stroking. Phony-baloneys. Feelings of entitlement. Wild expectations. Diva attitudes.
There are plenty of great people in Hollywood. But those bad apples sure stink up the bushel.
Bombshell - Hollywood A-List Book 1
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…

CD Reiss shot up the New York Times bestseller list with sizzling works like Hardball and Shuttergirl, but 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 answer, she’s at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, Reiss moved to Hollywood to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from the University of Southern California. Unfortunately, her screenwriting went nowhere, but it did give her enough confidence to write novels.
Today she’s adoringly referred to as the “Shakespeare of Smut,” which she thinks is flattering, but it hasn’t gotten her out of chopping a single piece of wood.
