Carly Taylor is pretty sure she's dreaming. It's not possible that Sam Weiss - rock star god and sexy hotness personified - is actually in her bakery. This sort of thing never happens in the too-small town of Haven. Or to her. And being stranded in a secluded mountain cabin with the deliciously decadent Sam during an ice storm? This is definitely not Carly's real life . . .

Now there's just the two of them, a roaring fire, lots of food and drink, and a sizzling attraction - one that just might make Carly do the unexpected. For one night, she'll live the fantasy. For one night, nothing else matters. . . not her struggling business, not her lonely life, not Sam's bad-boy reputation. But sometimes one night can turn one crazy, beautiful dream into something real.

Carly owns a small town bakery. She is a loner and doesn’t lead a very exciting life. So, when her favorite rock star walks into her small town bakery, she is flustered and can’t believe he would be flirting with her! As a storm heads their way, Sam, the rock star, orders a bunch of goodies to be delivered to his home. Carly thinks it is for a large party and gets everything together and to him before the roads become too icy. But, when she gets to his rental house, she ends up trapped because of the icy roads. The attraction between Sam and Carly is undeniable and they end up enjoying their time together in front of the roaring fire. Rock with You is a short, sexy, funny, delicious novella that is easily devoured in an afternoon. I really enjoyed the dynamic and chemistry between the characters. Sam is a big time rock star and falls instantly for the sweet, shy, but beautiful Carly. The writing was well done, the secondary characters well developed, and the main characters were engaging and entertaining. I flew through the story in no time and was actually disappointed when it ended, even though it did end well. Overall, I really like this story, author, and series. I’ll be looking for more from her! *Reviewed for Crystal's Many Reviewers. Copy was provided for review.

3.5 - "I don't usually flirt with rock stars..." Stars! Rock with You was a really great introduction to Rachel Lacey’s new Risking It All series, it was also my first read from this author and I really clicked with her writing style. If you like a series set around a small town, featuring recurring secondary characters, but with each book focusing on one particular couple than this is definitely a series you may want to check out. For me series like this are like catnip, so to find an established author that I haven’t read anything from previously whose writing style mixes well with my tastes makes me a very happy reader. "To ice storms." The rock-star hiding out getting iced in with the towns bakery owner and what starts as a one night agreement, then morphs into so much more as they get to know each other. This is a story that doesn’t really offer anything up in the way of tropes, but I liked Carly and Sam, the story was extremely easy to get on with and the set-up of the town of Haven and its residents gives the reader a taste of things to come in relation to future books in the series. Great start and introduction for me to this authors books, I cannot wait to start Run to You, due for release later this month.

*SIGH* This is the story dreams were made of. Haven't we all fantasized about our favorite rock star? Imagine being snowed in alone with him in a gorgeous "cabin"! Sometimes, just one look is all it takes to fall for someone - and he does - from the first time he steps in her bakery. And he's surprised she doesn't fawn all over his celebrity or try to take advantage of it. She is smitten, but refuses to believe it could be anything but a dream - to be over as soon as the snow melts and he heads back to LA. But love can conquer all... Welcome to Haven!!

If you are looking for a quick sweet rock fix this is the book for you. Sam way laying low in a small town in North Carolina working on songs for a new album but nothing was really coming to him…that is until he walked into her bakery. Carly was not only an excellent baker but she was very pretty with an even better personality which drew Sam to her. They both felt that little something but in Carly’s case was it just because she recognized Sam as the rock star he was? How could she pass up on the chance to deliver some of her baked goods to his rental home in the mountains? Nothing like an ice storm to get you stranded at the rock star’s house. Sam soon realized he found his muse and the words just poured from him. But what happens when the roads are cleared and their time together in their little love nest comes to an end? Carly knows that it’s impossible for this to go anywhere after all she is just a small town girl who owns her own bakery and Sam is a big rock star who lives in LA. Is either of them able to walk away from what they had found together in that home in the mountains? A really nice sweet read well worth your time.

Rock With You is a short story kicking off a new series. Even though it's a short story, Rachel writes a complete story and it is awesome! Rocker Sam walks into Carly's bakery and when he leaves he knows he wants to see her again. When Carly brings a delivery to Sam's house mother nature intervenes with an ice storm. What do you think will happen? I loved this story! Carly and Sam were really great together! It was a great start to the series and I can't wait for the next book!! I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review. If tabloids are to be believed, rock star Sam Weiss, is trouble. When he walks into Carly's bakery, she can't believe her eyes. This man looks like Sam Weiss, but she thinks she's dreaming because why would he be in her small town. When he finally places his order, he knows he's been recognized. Carly stammers and stumbles through "meeting" Sam, all of which he thinks is adorable. He's so used to women throwing themselves at him and wanting things from him, that he doesn't know what to make of sweet Carly. He knows one thing for sure, he has to see her again! Once home, he orders a variety of what she has left in her bakery. Carly typically doesn't make deliveries, but she was closing early anyway to make it home before the storm hit.... Carly and Sam spend the next two days trapped indoors due to the ice. Neither wants what they've experienced to end, but the "real world" calls. Sam goes back to LA to record a duet and Carly goes back to her bakery. They last all of one week before Sam shows up in the bakery begging for Carly to give them a chance.... This novella ends with a HEA and is not a cliffhanger! I really liked this novella because it wasn't your typical rock star story. Sam had been hiding out due to a scandle, but drugs and multiple sex partners were not involved! I highly recommend this novella if you're looking for a taste of the sweet side of a rocker story!

rachel lacey kicks off her risking it all series with rock with you, a short story that introduces us to the small town of haven, north carolina. i read the excerpt to the official first novel in the series, run to you, and i'm not sure how else these books are connected, but who cares, because let me tell you that rock with you is worth reading on its own merits. i mean, i totally enjoyed this novella. it may be true that i have a soft spot for rock and roll heroes. and the fact that the baker heroine reminded me of the heroine from one of my favorite romance short stories, chocolate kisses, which was part of harlequin's valentine 1993 collection. [it's so weird what stays with you.] anyway, carly taylor and sam weiss meet-cute at her bakery. when sam orders a ridiculous amount of pastries, carly delivers them to his rental place only to end up stranded when an incoming ice storm immobilizes her vehicle and cuts the power. but at least they have plenty to eat. the forced intimacy of the power outage and the seclusion of sam's hideaway lets the characters get close in a way that feels realistic. in some ways it's easy to forget that the characters only know each other for a couple of days, somehow lacey manages to make the insta-romance feel organic. and now i'm definitely interested in reading the next novel in the series, even though i'm still not sure how it connects. other than both of them taking place in haven. which sounds like quite a lovely place to be. **rock with you will publish on august 2, 2016. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/forever (grand central publishing) in exchange for my honest review.

Rock with You by Rachel Lacey....A perfect short story when you are trying to escape a long day. Rachel Lacey packs a full story into a novella about a rocker and a bakery girl. I loved Carly and Sam they are so cute together and so much sizzle between each other. This book made me smile, Carly is so funny. I was given a complimentary book by publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

Sam Weiss is completely SWOON-WORTHY! I LOVED this story from start to finish! I just love a story centered around a storm. This story follows an unlikely couple during a weekend ice storm. Locked in a mansion-sized cabin with only a fireplace and each other to keep them warm?--what could be more romantic! 5 STARS!!! I can't wait for the next is this new series!
