Rock With Me (With Me In Seattle) 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?
First of all let me give a big huge thanks to the Awesome Kristen Proby for agreeing to do this exclusive bonus scene for Lori's Book Blog! I seriously just love her to pieces and I want to force her to give me Caleb's story like now because I already miss Leo and his seriously lickable stars!
So for those of you who have finished Rock With Me... I'm sure you remember the struggles these two faced just to be together and then what Sam told Leo in the epilogue? Well this little bonus scene is about six months past the epilogue. It's their first night in their new home.

I unpack the last item from the last box, set the shoebox of gorgeous Choo shoes on their rack and sit back on my heels with a happy sigh. Levine is curled up in a ball beside me, happily snoring in his new home.
We are home.
It’s been six long months of architects and plans and Leo screaming at the construction crew to work faster, not to mention more family drama that our family has ever seen, but here we are, safely on the other side and settling into our house on the cliffs over looking the Sound.
I never want to leave.
“Here you are.” Leo saunters into the closet, his gray eyes happy and lips turned up in a smile.
“I’m never leaving this closet,” I reply.
“In that case,” he sinks to the floor beside me, leans his back against the island that sits in the middle of the room that houses my underwear and bras, and pulls me into his lap. “I’ll just have to give you this here.”
“What is it?” I ask.
He doesn’t answer; he just kisses me deeply, pushes his fingers through my hair, and then rubs his nose over mine with a deep sigh.
“I love this closet,” I whisper against his mouth. “Thank you for building it for me.”
“Did you finish unpacking the kitchen?” I ask and trace the tattoos on his fingers.
“Yep, we’re all done.” He sighs and kisses my forehead. “Thank God. I’ve been ready to have you here, in our home, for months.”
“I know,” I smile and turn my face into his chest and pull in a deep breath, enjoying his clean scent. “We made it.”
He tips my chin back with his finger and thumb so he can look me in the eye. “Did you think we wouldn’t?”
“No,” I shake my head and pull my fingers down his cheek. “What did you want to give me?”
“Everything you want,” he immediately responds and I grin widely.
“I have everything I want, right here.”
“That’s sweet,” he murmurs and I can’t help but have fun with him a little.
“It is,” I nod and look around the closet filled with colorful fabrics, leathers and jewelry. “Every thing in here is fantastic.”
His eyes narrow, but he’s not fooling me. He thinks I’m funny.
“Is that so?” he asks, his voice deceptively quiet.
“Mmm,” I confirm with a nod, but then stop as though I’m reconsidering. “Well, there’s Levine too.”
“Of course, Levine too.” Leo laughs and shakes his head. “What am I going to do with you, sunshine?”
“Love me,” I whisper and kiss his chin.
“I do love you.” His face sobers and he closes his eyes for a heartbeat before finding mine again.
“What’s wrong?” I ask and cup his face in my hands.
“Absolutely nothing.” His voice is raspy and full of emotion, and I’m completely thrown.
Something has him all in knots.
“Talk to me,” I whisper.
“I can’t tell you what it means to me that we’re here.” He swallows and pins me in his gaze. “I want to give you something.”
Oh, fuck me, he’s going to propose.
He must sense my horror because he laughs and mutters, “No, I’m not proposing, sunshine.”
“Okay.” I sigh in relief but my guard goes back up when he pauses again, looking so uncertain. “You’re freaking me out, Nash. Spill it.”
“Today is a new beginning for us. Not that we need it, because we’ve been doing great so far, but it feels like this makes everything official.”
I nod, encouraging him to continue.
“I never had a home like this, Sam. Not since my folks passed. This, you, is all I ever wanted.”
I feel tears threaten as he continues.
“My parents had this, and I knew even when I was small that they were crazy about each other. My dad gave my mom this,” he pulls a small white box with a red ribbon out of his pocket and holds it up for me, “when I was pretty young.”
“You went through their things,” I whisper.
“Yeah. Open it.”
Inside is a silver chain bracelet with small sun charms hanging from it. “Did he call her sunshine?” I whisper.
“No, but she loved this bracelet. She wore it almost every day, and I think it’s appropriate that you have it.”
My eyes turn up to his and his smiles softly. “Thank you, so much.”
“My pleasure. Welcome home, sunshine.” He tips his head down and brushes his lips lightly across mine, and then settles in for long, demanding kisses. My breasts grow heavy and I feel him harden against my hip as I push my fingers into his hair and hold him tightly against me.
He suddenly stands, with me in his arms and strides out of the closet and into our spacious master bedroom.
“Enough of the mushy shit,” he growls and lays me down on the soft down comforter. “It’s time to christen this bed.”“Good plan.” I grin.

Oh. My. God. I LOVE it! Leo is one man that can make my eyes tear up, my heart race, and my mind fill with dirty thoughts all at the same time. Knowing what we know about Leo and Sam this present, the way he gives it to her, and the meaning behind it - ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!! I'm going to miss getting to spend one on one time with these too, but knowing they both finally got that happily ever after neither of them thought they'd get is priceless!
Big huge gigantic hugs and maybe even a little smoochie to the beautiful Kristen Proby for this awesome scene. I've said it before and I'll say it again... I love this woman!!!
