Lynn Rider lives in the south with her husband, two kids, two dogs, two fish and much to her dismay, two cats. She loves hanging out with friends, reading and a good glass of wine.
When she’s not spending time with her family and friends, she can be found sitting in a quiet corner or locked away with her laptop bringing life to the characters in her head.
My thanks go to the author for the ARC of this book.
I must be honest and say that I hadn’t heard of this author before this book, however I will now.
Damage Control is a second chance and all round sweet contemporary romance. It has all the elements to make it a sweet read. You have your smoking hot hero and your bumbling but feisty when it counts lead female and you have the background characters to fill it all in. The plot isn’t original really, however it is genuine and I adore books that make you feel happy and this did just that.
James and Emma were childhood best friends, only James had a little crush on Emma. However, Emma, not seeing James as anything but a friend, goes out with the school’s resident playboy and all round douche. It isn’t until an incident occurs that Emma sees James in a different light. They kiss but are interrupted by James father who lets it slip that they are moving. Feeling heartbroken Emma goes home, the next day though James has gone.
Fast forward 7 years. James is now a Hollywood actor, loved by millions and earning millions. Emma works in her local supermarket, she lives with her friend and they lead a simplistic lifestyle.
Living up to his Hollywood playboy lifestyle leads to an incident in which it makes James stop and think. He remembers his first love and that leads him to go home to Scotland and find Emma. They begin to fall in love but having a relationship that is always in the spotlight is hard and trying. Can love find a way to trump all that? Well kiddies, you’ll have to read the book and find out.
For the first time reading this authors work, I’m really impressed and will definitely read more. The way she tells the story is endearing and makes you want that happy ending. It makes you feel light but it’s not wimpy, there’s elements of hardness. It’s just one of those books that after you’ve read, you smile with contentment.
Eva King will be one author I look out for in the future.
Happy reading 😊

Tatum hasn’t had it easy. Her life has been a series of battles, but that hasn’t stopped her from finding and hanging onto what she wants and loves. She’s come a long way from the small farm in Texas she was born on – she’s earned her own way through college on diving scholarships, then moved to begin her career as an elite swim team coach, and is doing her best to survive her life as a widow and single mom.
When Nic Lobo literally steals her away from the life she’s fought to keep together, the most basic of responses is to hate him with every fiber of her being. His quick temper and random absences make that easy. So is the fact that she’s still in love with her dead husband, though she’s also very angry at him for the way in which he left her. But Nic is stubborn and committed, and he has the uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before, not even with the father of her child. He forces Tatum to respond to him the only way he knows how and that terrifies her in so many ways.
Will she fight him to the death, refusing to forgive him for the harm he’s caused, or will he wear her down until she acknowledges the connection their souls won’t allow to be severed.

Another day another screw up. I’ve been reprimanded so many times in the past two weeks, you’d think I could get a handle on it–that I could find a way out of this. Hell no. Captain brought me in for another infraction, and if I can’t get this straight I’m off the force. All my family have been cops. My Dad, my Uncles, crap–even my Great Grandfather was a Marshall during Lincoln’s time. If I lose this job and I’m done; what will I do?
While out on patrol, what I thought was a routine traffic stop for a taillight out on a sleek motorcycle, that’s when I met her. Her jet black hair streams out of her helmet, flowing down her back in a tight braid. That slim body, and her glorious rack, is stuffed tight in a race jacket. She’s amazing to say the least. She’s what dreams are made of.
That was until I arrested her.
I’m the Doll of Crown Industries. I have everything I could ever ask for, and then some. Nothing was ever hard. What I portrayed to the world, and to my family is a lie. Everyone expects me to be the perfectly manicured, presentable and contained daughter. They think I’m the one that follows the rules, and stays within the lines.
As my life fell apart, and that perfect ivory tower family crumbled down, could I survive it? Will it crush me?

Paige Palmer has a problem and she has the solution within reach: it’s name is Leo Morris. Leo, master of Richmond town, is a powerful and unscrupulous man who will ask her to do something very particular in return for his help.
And situations are never as simple as they look…
“…Leo turned around, it was time to set foot in his office. He always locked himself in there from eleven p.m. into the dead of night, solving problems and meeting people. Sometimes he would also go into the club to throw some punches when needed, but he did that rarely now. Old habits die hard and when he had to solve something personally, there was no henchman who could do the job in his place. He grabbed the door handle, pulled it down, and found himself face to face with a pair of glacial eyes and a perfectly designed and symmetrical goatee with just a few strands of silver in it. If there were a prize for the most definite and precise goatee, Andy Pride would definitely win it. He was the best treasurer and public accountant in all of Virginia.
«There’s a person who wants to see you in your office.»
«Who the hell is it?»
«A woman» iceman answered without losing his composure and letting him get by.
When Leo left the room, Andy entered to take the documents and Dante smirked.
He would have loved to see his face when he saw the kind of woman who was waiting for him…
