Damage Control by Jae

⭐⭐☆


This is an overly long, super slow build romance.

Grace Durand is a successful actress married to a popular leading man, Nick. Her last film hasn’t done too well and she doesn’t need negative publicity when her new movie is about to be released. But pictures of her excessively physically close to her co-star Jill are about to torpedo her squeaky clean image with the blemish of being gay. Her extremely controlling mother-cum-manager fires her current publicist and signs her with another agency which appoints Lauren Pearce as her agent. Lauren’s first job is to make sure that the world believes that Grace is straight. Lauren is gay herself and when Grace’s mother realises this she immediately fires Lauren. Grace is having none of it and reinstates Lauren. Their relationship beings growing from there. With hardly any real confidantes or friends coupled with their PR-client relationship bringing them together often, Grace begins relying on Lauren more and more while Lauren struggles against her fast-developing attraction and feelings for Grace.

Honestly, Lauren is not particularly likeable. But then, on the other hand, she’s just so bland that you just don’t have any feelings for her. Grace is quite lovely. She is perfect as a person inasmuch she has strong loyalties, has weak moments (especially with her mom), is unsure but open when it comes to self-discovery and self-awareness — all in all a good blend of positives and uncertainties. We are not huge fans of much-butch and very-femme pairings, which this one totally is.

If it is books featuring actresses that you want, we’d recommend The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Survived by Her Longtime Companion, Breathless, Living, The GravityBetween Us and And Playing the Roleof Herself way before this one. This is okay, but not great.
