"Steph Nuss has woven a lighthearted story that brought me to my knees on numerous occasions with its addictive writing and swoonworthy characters." - Candy at Prisoners of Print

Hollywood heartthrob, Maxton Waters, has just been named the World’s Sexiest Man Alive. Women fantasize about him. Men want to be him. The paparazzi continuously follow him. His ego is definitely larger than his heart.
Poverty made her grateful.
Whitley Gonzalez has made a life for herself after growing up in and out of homeless shelters. Now a hardworking nurse, she spends her spare time raising her son alone and giving back to the community that helped raise her.
But when Max is sentenced to hours of community services and placed under the single mom’s thumb, working together proves harder than they ever expected, inspiring an unlikely love in the city.
*Can be read as a standalone*
I fell in love with this series from book one. There's something about Steph Nuss's writing that is both entertaining and heartfelt. For five books she held her reader's attention with this group of friends that loved, felt, and lived.
Inspired By You is a story that I didn't know I wanted. Maxton was never a character I really felt invested in, but reading his book and reading about who he really is makes me want to go back and see those scenes that he features in. Because now that I understand the mystery of him I love everything.
Whitley made my heart ache. She made it smile. I fell for her and her story right away. I was prepared to read about her and Maxton and build up to loving them together, in true Steph Nuss fashion she made me feel hard and fast for these people. They're people, not characters. I've always thought that.
I laughed, shed a few tears, and lived once again with my favorite group of friends. It's rare to find an entire series that sucks you in and holds you there with the same level of hope, love, friendship, and belonging. But it happens. It happened with book one and five books later the same solid foundation is still there, drawing me in.
I suggest you read all of the Love In The City books, but if you want to start somewhere, here is a good place.
