Damage Control by Kate McMurray

Senate candidate Parker Livingston chose his political dreams over a future with the man he loved. He lives with constant regret about not having Jackson Kane in his life. Or his bed. And when a strange woman is found murdered in Parker’s apartment, Jackson is the only person Parker trusts to help clear his name.

Jackson never forgave Parker for the way their relationship ended. He moved on, built a name for himself as a criminal defense attorney and swore he’d never let heartbreak back in. But when Parker shows up on his doorstep, wild-eyed and handsome and desperate for his help, Jackson can’t say no. Parker is a lot of things, but he’s no murderer.

Forced back together, searching for answers, their attraction returns with a vengeance. Any distraction—personal or professional—could be deadly. The murderer is still at large, and he’s made it clear one of them is his next victim.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I really enjoyed this book which combines a second chance romance with a political murder mystery. I loved the legal issues raised, and the twist which brought the criminal to justice.

Jack and Park spent eight years together until Park left as he wanted a republican political career – which would not happen with a boyfriend in the picture. So, for the last five years he has been living a lie. When he needs a criminal lawyer though, it is Jack's office that he goes to first. As we learn more about these two, my admiration for Jackson could only grow, and for Park, well maybe there wasn't a lot there in the first place!

As the murder case draws to a conclusion, the men have admitted how they feel, but Jack will not be in a closeted relationship – so we know that there has to be a major change on Park's behalf. It is interesting being present as he weighs up his current career against losing the man he loves for a second time. The fact that he has a significant financial cushion, and other businesses which could replace the senatorship didn't make me feel too sorry for him, but I did understand that he was ambitious and wanted to effect change from the inside. Let's just say I liked Jack's brand of honesty better!

An intriguing, chemistry laden story with plenty of mystery and legal issues of ethics thrown into the mix. I find Kate McMurray's writing style to be conducive to continual turning of the pages, so do make sure you have plenty of time when you start this book, as you will be sucked in and suddenly find you forgot dinner.
