ARC Review: Playing the Part by Robin Covington

Playing the Part is my first Robin Covington book, but I can tell you it won't be the last. This book was enjoyable and hot, and for me it was a natural progression of two people falling in love. Mick is an action movie star who wants to broaden his career. He is struggling wih his first non-action role and the director decides that he needs a little insight into the part from the author of the book which the movie is based on. Piper is struggling to please her publisher and relaunch her career after a devasting and very public break-up. Piper and Mick have a ton of chemisty right from the start, and the attraction and passion between them is explosive. As Mick and Piper spend more time together, they decide to have a fling while she is on set. After Piper's break-up she is hesitant to get involved with anyone who isn't safe, and Mick is anything but. Mick doesn't believe in love and is a known ladies man, but as they get to know each other they begin to rethink their no-strings attached fling and start to think about the future.

Mick is confident and sexy, but he is also deeper than what you see on the surface. I really loved how even though he was out for publicity and making sure that his career was always on top he was sweet and did things he could have made himself look even better for in private. The scenes between Mick and Piper were witty and fun and had the full range of romantic and sweet to scorching hot. Piper was extremely likable and a heroine I was rooting for from page one. She wasn't afraid to be herself and say what she felt. I found that I related to her character very easily. Although the time period of this book is somewhat short, I had absolutely no problem believing in the growing relationship between the two of them. Covington did a great job of developing the characters and the plot so that Mick and Piper grew as individuals and as a couple with a future that neither of them could have predicted.

Overall, I thought this book was great. It was a quick enjoyable read, and I just couldn't put it down. The characters were likable and perfect for each other. If you are looking for something light and fun to read with explosive chemistry, this is definitely a must read. After reading this book, I am looking forward to reading more of Covington's books in the futre!
