My Thoughts

If you like a romance novel with a lot of heat and a compelling storyline, Playing the Part by Robin Covington is the book for you. Playing the Part tells the story of Piper an author who is tasked with helping Mick, one of the actors who stars in the movie adaptation of her book, understand Chance, the character that he is playing. Piper and Mick are instantly attracted to one another and the story quickly goes from warm to smoking hot.
Covington did a great job of portraying Mick’s and Piper’s past experiences, which hindered the development of their relationship. I really enjoyed how the tables were turned on Mick, the player who was used to getting what he wanted, as Piper played a little hard to get. Yet, I began to understand his problems with commitment as I learned a little about his family matters.  As for Piper, at times I felt that she was unreasonable, because she was so hesitant to commit to Mick. However, after her ex-boyfriend Antonio was on the scene, I could fully understand her hesitation and how her past was affecting her current relationship. I absolutely loved how Mick dealt with Antonio. And can only describe Antonio’s character as an obnoxious jerk. Mick’s response to Antonio provided proof that he cared for piper. However, they both continued to struggle with whether they would have no-strings-attached, be friends-with-benefits, or fully commit to one another.  
Some of the plot points really pointed out the darker side to fame and how all the media attention can affect a relationship. I loved how things weren’t perfect from the start and although the cards were stacked against them, Mick was intent on proving his love to Piper and making things right.
I have to admit that Playing the Part is a little off the charts on the heat meter, but I really enjoyed this story about two people who started falling in love when they were only looking for a good time.

Rating 4/5

I received a copy of Playing the Part from the publisher for an unbiased review. Thank you.
