Confession time: I’m one of those chicks.
I’m the type that, when you compile a playlist for me, I’m going to analyze the fa-shizzle out of it. Admittedly, being married for as long as I have, I don’t get many dedicated playlists anymore (don’t worry, he’s a man of many other talents – ahem).
So I make them for myself.
I compile playlists for each season of the year. I make playlists when I’m on vacation, so I can remember exactly how I felt while experiencing the away-game-happy. And I design playlists for the people I diggity-dig. Sometimes they actually know about them – oftentimes, not so much.
When I’m trying to write a steamy scene, I admit I have some go-to songs in my archives, but I’m also constantly on the look-out for new ones to add (got any suggestions?).
Writing Girl Breaker, the last novel of my Break on Through series, was definitely an adventure and having the right music certainly enabled good girl, Jessica, and rough-around-the-edges biker, ‘Mad’ Max, to find their way to each other. Their sexual chemistry was off the charts and I was tickled hot pink to sit back and watch them do their thing.
