Zane Cooper. Hollywood royalty. Fourth generation superstar. He knows what it is to be one of the biggest celebrities in the world. And how lonely that title truly is. When scandal hits, his career hangs in the balance, and Zane flees LA for Seattle, laying low with his newly married best friend. Things will eventually blow over, and he’ll have his life back soon enough.
Aubrey Stansfield arrives in Seattle excited to start a new job, and eager to settle into her new home. But when she arrives at her rental, Aubrey’s sure she’s imagining things because the uber sexy Zane Cooper is unpacking in her new bedroom. Thanks to a rental snafu, and unwilling to relocate on such short notice, Aubrey and Zane are thrust into being roommates.
Aubrey is about as average as a woman gets, so what could the megastar possibly see in her? She tells herself she’s not interested, despite their undeniable chemistry. But Zane is very persuasive, and soon Aubrey finds herself playing house with the most recognized man on the planet. Deep down, she knows it’s all a fantasy. He’ll head back to his posh lifestyle soon and leave her behind. No way could she fall in love with him.
But love doesn’t always follow the rules…

4 Heart Review by Ashley
A troubled playboy and a sweet teacher looking for a fresh start shouldn't work. But somehow Kristen Proby took two people who couldn't be more different if they tried and gave them a love story that was humorous and heartfelt.
I really liked Aubrey. She was ready for the next phase of her life to start. A new job in a new town and a new home. Too bad when she got there, someone was waiting with not so open arms. Oh that Zane. A good guy who got swept up in the glitz of Hollywood and lost a bit of who he really was.
I liked how Aubrey showed Zane a side to life that had been missing. Thoughtfulness. Realness. His world was full of flashy and fake so Aubrey's honesty was refreshing. It opened his eyes and made him realize he wanted more than the superficial life he'd been living.
Of course it wouldn't be a With Me in Seattle book without a girls night. And let me tell you, this one did not disappoint. Full of sweetness and steam, Aubrey and Zane's opposites attract romance made me laugh and swoon and left me wanting more.
About the Author
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
