Shine With Me

(A With Me In Seattle Novella)

by Kristen Proby

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her With Me In Seattle series…

Sabrina Harrison hates being famous. She walked away from show business, from the flashing bulbs and prying eyes years ago, and is happy in her rural Oregon home, dedicating her life to her non-profit.

Until Hollywood calls, offering her the role of a lifetime. In more than ten years, she’s never felt the pull to return to the business that shunned her, but this role is everything Sabrina’s ever longed for.

Now she has to get in shape for it.

Benjamin Demarco’s gym, Sound Fitness, continues making a name for itself in Seattle. And now, he finds himself with the task of training Sabrina, getting her in shape for the role of her life. He’s trained hundreds of women. This is his job. So why does he suddenly see Sabrina as more than just another client? His hands linger on her skin, his breath catches when she’s near.

He knows better. Soon, she’ll be gone, living her life. A life that doesn’t include him.

An Exclusive Interview With Kristen Proby:

~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog

Oh, how I adored Ben and Sabrina’s story! How did you choose them for this novella?

Well, in Imagine With Me, I knew that a movie was being written, and that Luke Williams would produce it. Then, it was just a chain of events that starts with the prologue of Shine With Me!

If you could give them a theme song, what would it be?

Oh gosh… this is always the hardest question! Let’s go with If I Can’t Have You by Shawn Mendes

I love the last scene of this book and that it took place on New Year’s Eve. Do you guys have any fun New Year traditions?

We are super boring. We just hang out until midnight and then hit the hay.

I recently watched the Naughty Books documentary and thought your writing journey is super inspiring. What one piece of advice would you give to an aspiring author?

Thank you! The biggest thing is to write. Writers write. And if you’re going to share your work with the masses, grow a thick skin.

Ok, you know I am obsessed with your furbabies but I don’t think I ever asked…how did you come up with their adorable names? (also, give them a squeeze for me!)

Awww, they love you, too! Honestly, they’re just names I like. Fiona sounded like a sassy calico name, and Milo is just adorable, like him. And for Rosie… it just sounded sweet for her.

Can you give us an idea of what you’re working on now?

I’m between projects right now, but am starting my mafia spin off of the With Me In Seattle series in just a couple of weeks!
