From the Publisher:

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?


So, I’m a little late reading this. I honestly love the With Me in Seattle Series and I like series like this where the story actually ends at the end of the book but through other characters we still get a glimpse of what happens afterward. I like spin offs. This may be because the first erotic romance novels I read were by Megan Hart and all of her novels are stand alone but there is a reading order because the characters are intertwined. Anyway, so this book is about Leo who we saw in Play with Me which was Meg and Will’s story. Sam has appeared in all 3 books. Meg and Leo were in foster care together and Sam is Will’s sister.

This is going to be pretty short as I don’t have a lot to say about it which is not a bad thing. I thought the story was well paced and well written. The connection between Sam and Leo is instant and their reaction and banter is hilarious. Sam is very much an independent woman which I like; I am not a fan of spineless characters. At times Sam is a bit headstrong and difficult but I will take that over spineless, insecure characters any day of the week. Leo is a Rock star so of course he is used to people using him to get somewhere. He never has that thought with Sam. While she can be a bit cold to others she really has a warm heart and wants to help others. Sam is the one that is used to being used because of her famous family and that’s why she is so independent and sometimes standoffish.

Sam and Leo have some hot sex. Kristen is like a master at writing sex scenes that are realistic yet scorching on the sex scale. I will read anything she writes. Honestly, in most other series’ book four is in no way as good as maybe the first two. Kristen knows the secret of keeping it fresh. All of the characters male and female are different from previous books so it doesn’t feel like you are reading the same thing over and over. Also, since the characters from earlier novels continue to appear it maintains the connection or theme within the novels which helps because the characters are so different.

If you haven’t read any of the With Me in Seattle Series you must be living under a rock and you need to get out from under there and pick up all the books. You will not be disappointed.
