Rock With Me by Kristen Proby

Front Man Leo Nash from the world-famous rock band, Nash, is the last person on earth Samantha Williams would trust. She's already learned about loving a celebrity the hard way and isn't signing up for another lesson.

Every time Sam gives Leo attitude, he wants to knock that chip off her fragile little shoulder. What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He's not used to women treating him like he's poisonous, and he isn't about to let her run away every time he gets close. He's had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime...when this one runs, he gives chase. But, catching Sam isn't as hard as he thought.

The sexual attraction between them is so thick, Sam can practically hold it in her hand. There's no way she can deny herself the promise of pleasure being with Leo would provide.

But, pleasure always comes with pain and when secrets are revealed and trust is challenged, who will run and who will chase?

Athlete leads are an easy sell for me. The same goes for rockstars. So I guess it would have to go without saying that I had huge expectations of this book. Adding the fact that the other protagonist was a rather interesting character from the first book in this series had my expectations overflowing.

I don't know why but the the story of Leo and Sam kind of fell short of those expectations. Yes, it was still a great read and I still enjoyed reading it for what it was. But since the previous books in this series were such big hits for me, this didn't quite measure up to it. I really can't find that many faults in the story so I would have to blame this on my very first impression of Sam in Book 1. I hope I'll outgrow this bias soon.

Because I would really love Leo to have an awesome, awesome lady. Maybe I don't see it yet...although I'm getting there. I guess being with him also helped me in warming up to Sam. I couldn't not like Leo's woman. I would really have to understand harder where she was coming from and the whys of all her apprehensions.

I'm afraid to fall.
I'll catch you, baby.
You terrify the hell out me. But being without you scares me more.
Ahhh, Mr Nash. *melts inside*

I still love KP's writing--entertaining, great dialogue, and funny. I love the characters in this series so much that it is always wonderful to revisit with them. I just can't get enough of scenes when the whole bunch of them are together. They have become my favorite scenes in this series and look forward to more of such in succeeding books.

Final verdict: 8/10. Great read.
