The harder they play…the harder they fall.
After publicly self-destructing over a heartbreak a year ago, bestselling romance writer Piper James is now making nice with her publisher by agreeing to teach Hollywood’s favorite action star how to act like he’s in love. Only playboy Mick Blackwell has no clue what love looks like.
When a seductive heat ignites between Piper and Mick, she jumps at the chance for a bit of fun between the sheets, but with two stipulations: she¹s kept out of the public eye and things end when she returns to New York. Only Mick keeps changing the rules on her. Tempted by America’s favorite bad boy, Piper is wondering how far she’s willing to bend…

Initially, I had a somewhat hard time deciding what to rate this book. I had kind of a bi-polar reading experience with it. One minute, I seriously couldn't put it down. It was definitely a page turner and the story was fabulous! But, the next minute, I found myself losing focus easier than I wou... ...more

Last month, I discovered Robin Covington and her witty, sexy and smart writing. I wondered if all her books were that well-written and after having read PLAYING THE PART, I can tell that this level of writing doesn’t come naturally to many authors, let alone Contemporary Romance authors. Covingt... ...more
Playing the Part is my first Robin Covington book and it won't be my last. First and foremost, I am so happy that the hero is biracial! I think this is the first biracial character (half black, half white) that I've read in mainstream romance. It makes ZERO sense that romance novels featuring peo... ...more

I've read two books by this author before and didn't really love them but this was by far the best. Since its from the sexy line, it has plenty of sex and for those who like to be warned like I would have wanted to the book has (view spoiler)[anal sex (hide spoiler)].

I can tell you off the bat that there’s definitely a demographic that will not like this book at all: spouses of readers like me. Why? I simply could not put it down! My hubby was definitely on his own for dinner and the laundry could wait one more day as far as I was concerned. Piper and Mick ha... ...more

The on-the-page chemistry starts off hot and only gets better as Mick and Piper move past their preconceived notions and difficult pasts to earn that hard-fought happily ever after. Covington is a master at drawing you in with fin... ...more

I still have a huge grin on my face, and I finished the book last night!!! This is definitely one author for my special favorites shelf.
I don't even know where to start!

This is the third book I have read by Ms. Covington , and I have to say, it is a heated page turner! By the time I had finished I had so many pages highlighted, I was not sure I could write a review without spoilers.....here is my attempt.

This was an absolutely fabulous read. Robin Covington never fails in creating characters and journeys that completely captivate you and 'Playing the Part' is no different; with wonderful characters, a great storyline, passion, intensity and a few surprises along the way, it has every single ingre... ...more
Piper is a novelist whose last Hollywood adaptation went sideways in a spectacular way. Mick, the lead in the newest adaptation of one of her books, is just the sort of man who got her into so much trouble the last time. But the chemistry is so fierce between them that neither can resist. Even th... ...more

I have a fantasy. One day I will write a book so entertaining, someone will decide to make a movie out of it. They will cast my current Hollywood crush, or whoever I envisaged as the hero when writing the story, in the lead role. And I will be invited on set to oversee things. We’ll meet and...
Immediately upon finishing this story, I was overwhelmed with a giant smile and an immense need to immediately write my review. This story was completely adorable with enough steam to add spice. Piper and Mick are great characters that are easy to love. Mick can be completely arrogant, but has hi... ...more
Playing the Part is exactly what I needed to read today. Right after I finished it, I had a big smile on my face and was just...happy. Because who doesn't enjoy a well-written Happily Ever After?

I literally didn't want to put this one down. Even though the ordinary-girl-meets-and-dazzles-a-famous-celebrity troupe is definitely one from the fairy tale realm, this version had more than a touch of believability. For one, Piper isn't exactly an ordinary girl--she's an author who's had more t... ...more
I fell in love with Piper and Mick. Though sometimes I wanted to strangle them both. Piper especially. I get that she had a troubled past and a lot of baggage, but come on! When a dream-boat like Mick chases you all over the country, it's time to cut the baggage and hold on as if your life depend... ...more
Now, I'll be completely honest, when I received this one as an ARC from the publisher, I was a bit apprehensive. I'm not really into books about actors in the limelight and the flashing lights of the paparazzi. But, yes, there is a but.. I can admit when I'm wrong.
This was the first book I've re... ...more
