Connect to LocalDB whilst it's being used by IISExpress

Hi, I find I cannot connect to localdb whilst a site is running in IISExpress, I'm guessing this is by design from it launching when it's connected.

At the moment closing the LinqPad connection doesn't work I need to delete the connection entirely - I'm guessing this is again just the way LocalDB works.

It's a bit of a pain killing IISExpress when I want to take a look with LINQPad, is there a way to piggy back on the LocalDB connection?

Or an alternative route to accomplish being able to have IISExpress connected and LinqPad.
