Review + Playlist + Giveaway: Rock With Me by Kristen Proby

Sexy, steamy, rock star romance! 


  • Stars: 4 hot rockin’ stars!
  • Main Characters: Leo Nash and Samantha “Sam” Williams
  • Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult
  • What I ♥ The Most: I really fell in love with Leo Nash! I just loved that he was so sexy and tough, as well as kind and loving. He was flawed, but hopeful and determined to get what he wanted! 
  • If You Like This Try: The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle… It’s a great book too with a hot, sweet and passionate rockstar!!!

“Okay, Seattle, let’s fucking rock!”

Hello tattooed rock star Leo Nash!!! We first meet Leo as family and friends gather to help move Leo’s sister, Meg, into Will Montgomery’s house. Sam Williams is there, along with her brother, actor Luke Williams and his wife, Nat. This group of actors, rock stars and all-around beautiful people are a tight-knit group. Leo, famous front man of the band Nash, is on break in Seattle and there to help Meg. Sam is feeling unnerved by the sexy rocker, but we learn quickly that she uses wit, sarcasm and a sharp level of bitchiness to keep her defenses up.


And that pretty much sums up Sam’s attitude with Leo, at first. Contradictory to her innermost thoughts and the enticing voice in her head, she tries to steer clear of Leo Nash. Sam  detests fame and everything that comes with that life. Immediately, however, we sense there’s something there… some reason that makes here defensive and closed off.

But Leo persists. There’s something about Samantha “with her light blonde hair and big blue eyes” that he can’t stay away from.


I loved them together!!! She’s a smack-talking smart ass who easily banters with Leo. And Leo, surprisingly is kind and gentlemanly behind that tough, tattooed rock god exterior. He’s incredibly sweet and I love that he calls her “Sunshine.”

“Her sweet, light scent is all around me. She smells like vanilla with a hint of lemons. Sunshine.” 

As they come together, slowly and hesitantly, it’s obvious that they are both flawed individuals that carry painful baggage from their past. They need to be able to shed that weight and trust each other, so they can truly be happy together. Sam is the most closed off and we learn that she’s had a bad experience with fame that has kept her from being open to those around her. But with Nash, the thought of losing him is more frightful than learning to overcome her fears.

“We’re just two people who have baggage and don’t trust anyone.”

Ultimately, this book is a very sexy read about being open to others, to love, to be loved. This fun, flirty and fiesty group of friends and family is awesome and I love the unconditional support they have for each other! This is the first book I read of Kristen’s and I can’t wait to keep reading more about this group of people! Definitely pick up this sexy rock star romance!!!! It’s hot!

Playlist for ROCK WITH ME

Because this book is about a rock star, music played a big role in the process of writing the book. Here is the playlist; click on the Spotify icon to listen 🙂


  • Kiss Me Slowly by Parachute – This song was on constant replay in the cave while writing this book! The lyrics are perfect, and it ended up playing a huge role in the story.
  • Between The Raindrops by Lifehouse
  • One More Night by Maroon 5
  • Try by Pink
  • Life After You by Daughtry
  • For The First Time by The Script
  • Push by Matchbox Twenty
  • King of Anything by Sara Bareilles
  • Trouble by Coldplay
  • Come On Get Higher by Matt Nathanson 

And last but certainly not least:

  •  Sunshine by Nash

All of the above songs were played in the writing cave while I was writing, and some made their way into the story. Sunshine is extra special, and when you read the book, you’ll see why. Leo wrote this song for Sam, and it’s incredibly intimate and personal to their story.

    I have read all 5 With me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby and absolutely loved them, each of the couples are amazing and have very different pasts, but they are the sexiest group off family and friends. Very funny laugh out loud moments, cracked me up.
