Fame made him selfish.

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*

4.5 Stars

I adore Steph Nuss' writing style, and the characters that she has developed for the Love in the City series.  She has an uncanny ability to draw you into her books so that you feel like you are a part of this group of friends world. 

Inspired By You, is a fast paced story told from the dual point of view of  Max and Whitley.  Whilst this title can be read as a standalone, it's the sixth title in the Love in the City series, a set of interconnected standalones with repeating characters.   I adore the characters that feature in this series, and I was glad that they featured so frequently throughout Max and Whitley's story. 

Max and Whitley's story is a sweet, sexy and lighthearted read, with fun, flirty and at times argumentative banter that captivated me.  

Both characters are completely endearing, and for me being a mother, I could totally relate to Whitley's protective instincts.  Whitley is independent, resilient, strong, compassionate and giving.  She's a single mother to Zane. 

Max is charming and confident, yet also down to earth, kind and caring.  He's an actor, named world's sexiest man alive.  After making some questionable choices, his behaviour lands him in Whitley's path. 

Zane is sweet, funny and downright adorable, and will steal your heart. 

Another wonderful addition to this series, and I look forward to the next title in the series. 

Steph Nuss was born and raised in rural Kansas, where she currently resides with her black Labrador son named Gunner. She grew up with a passion for reading and writing. When she’s not immersed into the land of fiction, she enjoys listening to music that came before her time, watching movies and reruns of her favorite shows, and hanging out with her family and friends. She also has a bachelor’s degree in psychology that she’ll never use…unless she’s profiling her characters of course.
