About The Book:

Recovering from a broken relationship, Emma Mitchell moves in with her best friend. Her life is quiet and uneventful, just how she likes it. Little does she know that the events of the following months will change her life forever.

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 pretense 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.

My Review:

Damage ControlDamage Control by Eva King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Damage Control by Eva King is a standalone contemporary romance with a side-order of second chances. Told in dual POV between James McNair, the Hollywood A-lister that emigrated from Scotland to the US in his teens, and Emma Mitchell, the girl he left behind, his best friend, and biggest crush.

The story is well-written and well-paced. As the tale unfolds we will jump here or there ahead a week or month or more putting the timeline progression of their reacquaintance and attraction into a much more realistic point than some insta-love stories (which I also don't mind).

James is flawed. Not much, but he has his issues. Emma is not as confident in herself as she could be but together their flaws lessen and their value of themselves and each other grows. Some nice moments with the secondary characters that left me intrigued enough to wonder if they may to get their own book. Enjoy!
