Playing With the Drummer by Robin Covington….Guest Blog

Happy Tuesday!  It’s snowing here in the Philadelphia suburbs but luckily I have the fabulous Robin Covington on the blog today talking about her new sexy and steamy release, Playing With the Drummer…

This will surely keep me warm today!  Enjoy! 


Friends – I loved writing a book about a musician. I’m a singer in a band, have performed in a group since I was five years old (that’s 40 years if you’re counting) and I have to have music playing all the time in the house, car and office (it drives my kids and my co-workers nuts). So, when I opened up the document to write Lita and Rocky’s story, I had to have a playlist.

A constant loop, I played these songs over and over while I told the story of the reclusive drummer and the entertainment reporter who supposedly lived in different worlds. They were incendiary in and outside the bedroom, opinionated and hate each other at first blush. But we all know that the line between love and hate is sometimes non-existent . . . so for these two I had to have songs of passion, love, and regret.


So, in no particular order, are five of the songs from the playlist:

  1. Friends, Lovers or Nothing by John Mayer: Yep. Lita and Rocky are an all-or-nothing proposition and this tune sums it up perfectly. Come to think of it¼I’m not sure they could ever be just
  2. Come Over by Kenny Chesney: Oh yeah, the penultimate booty call song¼and I can just picture Rocky pulling out these lyrics to get Lita to get her ass over to his place. When he says that their no good for each other but not good for anyone else, I get the shivers ¼the good kind.
  3. Make You Miss Me by Sam Hunt: Once Rocky decides that Lita is his, there is no way he’s going to let her go easily. She might have been able to leave other men before but they aren’t him and he won’t be easy to forget.
  4. You and I by Lady Gaga: As much as Rocky think Lita is his, she claims him just as fiercely. Only a strong woman could stand up to the broody, moody and exasperating man and make it clear that this time she’s not leaving without him
  5. Almost Almost is Never Enough by Ariana Grande: Oh man. The moment when Lita and Rocky think it’s never going to work out for them. They know better than most that you love someone deeply and it still can’t work. Luckily they had me and I love a happy ending. *grin*


So, that’s my short list! You can check out the rest of the playlist and a book trailer on my website.


Thanks for visiting, Robin!  It’s always fun to have you!  XO Jillian 


Entertainment journalist Lita Matthews is on the verge of making it big. As in her-own-TV-show big. She just needs amazing inside scoop on the year’s hottest celebrity wedding. Instead, her big break is becoming a big nightmare—all thanks to rock star Rocky Cardano. Who apparently hasn’t gotten over what happened between them four years ago…

Rocky is pretty damn familiar with just how far Lita will go for a “scoop.” Hell, their unbelievably hot hook-up in Mexico years ago was the story of a lifetime. Rocky’s learned his lessons. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep her from the story—even if he has to seduce her to the point of distraction! But Lita has always had a way of getting under his skin. Only this time, he won’t be able to just walk away…
