Famous Hollywood actor James McNair is a renowned womaniser with a penchant for partying and hitting the tabloids for all the wrong reasons. When a night of partying a little too hard means he finally has to take stock and reevaluate his lifestyle, a week away from the flashing lights of Hollywood is just what he needs. What better place to hide than in his childhood home in Edinburgh, Scotland?
When the old friends are reunited, feelings resurface and sparks fly. But James must keep the pretence of his new persona until the premier of his biggest film in his career. He just has no idea if he'll be able to keep his feelings for Emma under wraps until then.
Sometimes it takes more than damage control to find a happily ever after.
Damage Control by Eva King
What could be better than childhood best friends reuniting to find love? Make one an A-lister Hollywood star in a KILT!
Emma is struggling with her lot in life. She recently experienced a hard breakup and a career as a shopping clerk.
James is a famous movie actor who spends his off set time womanizing and making a mess of his life.
When James pushes the power to be a little to far with his antics, they "ask him" to get his act together. After a recent interview where James recollects about his first kiss, James decides to look her up...Emma.
As the story progresses, it makes me think King got her inspiration imaging the Outlanders cast member, Sam Hueghan finding love with his child hood sweet heart, while Jane is based on Caitriona Balfe. Well at least that is how the characters evolved in my head. No matter the inspiration, I flat out loved DAMAGE CONTROL.
If you are looking for a strong contemporary romance with flawed and realistic characters, Damage Control is a marvelous choice!
Thank you to Eva King for sharing her work with me. This is my honest and voluntary review.
