Harper Jennings is fashion designer with her own label as Jen Harper. Maverick Jones is the owner of Jones Jym and the one common factor they share before they met is the wedge that could stand between them finding happiness. They both lost a friend Camille to bulimia. Maverick blames the fashion industry for Camille death and therefore anyone and everyone connected to the industry. But Jen Harper has a slightly higher rating on the dislike scale because Camille modeled for Jen Harper fashion li ...more

Loved book one and this was just as good if not better.

Book one was about Elly and Carter. This is Maverick and Harpers story. Harper is a lovely strong character. She's been fighting an eating disorder for a long time. I just love Maverick. He's my new book boyfriend. He's a gym owner and a personal trainer. These two are fantastic together. The chemistry was electric. Love that we get to read more about the characters we met in book one.

This is a really great book that I loved. Highly recomm

If you are looking for a sweet, city-based romance, that tackles some rather important societal issues, then Fantasized By You may just be a perfect fit for your next read! Although this is Book 2 in the Love in the City series, and there is some carryover of the characters from Book 1 (Wanted by You), Fantasized By You can still easily be read as a standalone, as each book in the series focuses on the love story of a different couple.

Jen Harper, is a famous fashion designer, whose career is at

I loved book one with Carter and Elly, but OMG, I have fallen in love with Maverick and Harper. I knew I was going to like this book I just didn't expect to fall so in love with these two. We briefly met Harper in book one and she is a fashion designer. I totally love that she is so down-to-earth and not snobby. I mean I would love to have her as my friend. She is on her way to turning thirty and she wonders if she is going to find love. Little does she know she is going to find it in the most u ...more

What I’m loving about this series is that we aren’t trying to drag out a story and create drama for just one couple. I see far too many of those types of series around and both my fellow blogger Kristal and I aren’t particularly fans, but this way of approaching a romance series is one I can totally get on-board with! Each one of these books focuses on a separate co

To be honest I love a series that ENDS the characters story with each book. I hate cliffhanger So the next book better be Fletcher. Until then swooning over Maverick. Love the teaser and I am drooling over Maverick. I honestly say that creating Maverick is ruining it for every other guy on the planet, they will all seem inferior to his greatness. He is real to me! In book one we meet Harper, Carter's sister and I instantly loved her. Now for the story of Maverick, my love so hands off, and Harpe ...more

I found this second installment of the Love In The City series to be much better than the first, flowing more smoothly and keeping my attention more focused. I loved learning more about Maverick, as I really liked his character in the first book. And Harper really comes across as a down-to-earth, strong woman who we learn has overcome a huge problem.

I LOVE Harper's attitude towards her models, and her acceptance and encouragement for all women's bodies since it sends a positive message in an ind

There is an ongoing trend so far in the Love In the City series and this - realness.

No unnecessary, overdrawn drama.
Straight & to the point plot.
H who lets the h know his intentions from the start and vice versa.

Of course there is some craziness thrown in there but it's tolerable. It did not deter me from reading nor did I roll my eyes once.

Harper Jennings and Maverick Jones were so freaking cute together and I loved the honesty that they both gave each other from day one of their relations

I received this for an honest review. I fell in love with Maverick and Harper's story. This was such a wonderful second book. I think I liked it just as much as I liked the first one. Again the Author just absolutely hooked me with this story. Harper is a fashion designer who has faced her own battle with Bulimia and is ready to help others. Maverick has a succesful gym where he is now opening a clinic in honor of a friend who died because of an eating disorder. Harper wants to help by being a m ...more

In this book you will get to know the rest of their group, Carter and Mav's friends and Harper's best friend Max.
Steph created a book that has a little bit of everything and it is realistic and ypu can easily relate with the characters that makes you read this story on one sitting.

I didn’t read the first book in this series and am planning on reading it. I found I didn’t have a hard time since I didn’t read the first one. This touched on something serious that a lot of people struggle with. I was glad to see Harper get the help she needed. Maverick has a successful gym he runs and isn’t crazy about having Harper be a part of it in any way. This was a fun easy read that you won’t be able to put down. Looking forward to reading more from this autho

This is the second book in the Love in the City series. The story focuses around Carter's older sister Harper, and Elly's childhood friend Mav. Harper is a very successful and famous fashion designer, Jen Harper, while Mav owns and operates a popular fitness center called Jones Jym.

The story starts as a flashback of Harper, during the time when she suffered from bulimia. At this time, she hears tragic new that one of her closest friends, Ca

Loved it!

1st: I read this book in less than one day! Devoured it when I was suppose to be working but I will tell you totally worth getting in trouble for!  Be warned: You will become addicted to this series. 





We start off where "Wanted by You" left off which is Carter & Elly planning their wedding.





***HIGHLY SUGGEST:  You need to read Book#1 1st before reading this to better understand where the characters are at.***

The gang is back together for book 2 in the Love in City series.

We met Maverick in book 1. He’s known Elly his entire life. His mother and her mother were best friends, but his home life was completely different than hers. His parents never had a loving marriage. His father cheated constantly and his mother was always unhappy. He did learn exactly what NOT to do in a relationship though. Seeing what his parents had made Mav realize what he didn’t want, which told him exactly what he did want. H

Fantasized By You was an easy read and a fun addition to Steph Nuss' Love In the City series. While this book can be read as a stand-alone I enjoyed getting to see more Maverick and Harper after having first met them in Wanted By You. While one might consider a top fashion designer and a gym owner who hates the fashion industry with a passion and subsequently anyone associated with it an unlikely couple Harper and Maverick have no problems proving them wrong!

This was a very quick read and book two in this series. This is also told in first person but we get both of their perspectives interchangeably throughout the story.

This story can be read as a standalone so you don't need to read the first book to know what's going on but I would give book one a go just because both Harper and Maverick were first introduced in that one and it would have been great to see how they both change from then to now in their own book. In here we also got to see how thin

"Although if I was being honest with myself, I was already lost, but I didn't want to die."

Steph Nuss weaves a tale of a famous fashion designer struggling with a reality of needing control that she is trying to overcome. It is gritty and heartbreaking at times, but also beautiful and heartwarming. I would definitely recommend this story to those who also struggle to persevere through their internal battles. This was a 4 star read for me and Steph Nuss did a great job in bringing the reader into

I LOVE THIS SERIES!! I could not wait for this book to be released and I tore into it and never looked back. The Love in the City series is one of my new favorites. Each book is a standalone but they all intertwine together. The story is continuously moving and picks up right where the last one left off but with a different set of characters. I highly recommend reading them in order otherwise there will be spoilers in this book.

Fantasized by You is the second book in the Love in the City series by Steph Nuss. This book can easily be read as a standalone with interconnected characters. I was really excited when I found out that this was Maverick and Harper's story. I really liked Maverick after reading the first book, and I loved his friendship with Elly. It was great to see a different side of him in this book though, and I really enjoyed his and Harper's story.

Delightful story of the love of Harper and Maverick. Mav never planned on having a relationship and Harper had given up on finding someone for forever happiness. So when their paths crossed for the first time, they both were surprised by the attraction. It is a very enjoyable reading experience watching their love for each other grow stronger with each page. When evidence seemed to indicate Harper had cheated, Mav gave her the benefit of a do

"Fantasized by You" is a light hearted romance and the second book in this series. It can be read as a standalone without any trouble. In this series each installment centers around and brings conclusion to the focal couple in a central group of friends & family, therefore it can be read out of order with ease.

This installment centers around Harper Jennings (aka THE Jen Harper). She is a high-end fashion designer and pseudo celebrity due to her famous clientele and her close friendship with

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It had the plot I enjoy the most. Where the heroine and hero meet and don't play any games or deny their attraction, and their relationship is drama free for the most part. Not to say there wasn't any drama in the book! Just not OTT angst between the couple.

They both accept that they want each other and go for it.

So, what's this about?
