Poverty made her grateful.

Whitley Gonzalez has made a life for herself after growing up in and out of homeless shelters. Now a hardwork

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Inspired by You and loved it. Max and Whitley's chemistry was immediate and palpable, making it impossible not to fall for them both. Dating the sexiest man alive has its challenges, and Steph Nuss brought reality into their fairy tale and made it feel all the more real. This was my first book in the series but it reads as a complete standalone. Now I'm itching to read the rest of the series!

Love. Adore. Smitten for. Crazy about. Infatuated with. There just aren’t enough ways to accurately describe how much I fell for Inspired By You. Steph Nuss has woven a lighthearted story that brought me to my knees on numerous occasions with its addictive writing and swoonworthy characters. I’ve been with this author from the start and I’ve waited (im)patiently for this book. Well, it was without a doubt her best novel to date and one hundred percent worth the wait!

Steph Nuss is a new to me author and I truly enjoyed Inspired by You. This is the sixth book in her Love in the City series, but the first I read. Each book is a standalone romance with different couples that are interconnected friends. I am very excited to go back and read the entire series!

In Inspired by You, we meet Maxton Waters, an A-list actor who was just named the World’s Sexiest Man alive. You would think he would have everything a man could want. Though Max is very grateful for everyt

Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
I have been a fan of this series since the beginning. Each book has had a very different feel to it but they all have one thing in common, they suck you in.

Inspired by You had a pretty fast pace and felt like a quick read. The characters were likable and I enjoyed the banter. I especially liked the kid. Give me a sexy, protective, possessive man and a single mom and I am a complete goner. But, I have to say, as much as I liked the characters in this book, I didn't connect with them the way I ha

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book, and it was a great read! The chemistry between Whitley and Max was stellar. Fun banter. This is the 6th in a series but the first I've read, and it was seamless. No need to read the others first!

I love this series! I have read every single book and feel so connected to these characters. You can read this book as a standalone but I highly recommend you read them in order so that you don't get spoilers from the previous books. Also because they're all really amazing.

Inspired by You is the story of Max and Whitley. We've previously met both these characters and I loved Whitley. I'll admit I wasn't a huge fan of Max so I wasn't so sure how I'd like this book. I had this preconceived notion

Inspired by You is the sixth installment in the Love in the City series and is between heartthrob Max Waters and nurse/administrator Whitley Gonzalez.

Max has just been named the sexiest man alive, but some bad choices brought him to Whitley's hospital for some community service. Max is a down to earth guy, he hasn't let his fame and fortune change who he is down to his core. Whitley grew up in the foster care system and fought tooth and nail to achieve everything that she holds dear today, she a

Steph Nuss is a new author to me, and I find her writing style very talented as it drew me in from the beginning, and I found I didn't want to put Inspired by You down until I finished every page. Maxton Waters is the Sexiest Man Alive, and hit the pinnacle of his acting career, but it's made him a tad bit selfish in his fame. When he gets into trouble, he's ordered some community service hours, and he's gotten himself a new publicist, to put his life back on track. And this is when he meets sin ...more

I tend to read a lot of books that are in the middle of a series, but somehow I managed to read the last book in the series. Normally, this would very much upset me, but I have to say, the author did a great job of filling us in on who the other characters were.

Inspired by You is the story of Whitley Gonzalez, single mom to 8-year old Zane. She works as the volunteer coordinator at a hospital, and is quite surprised to hear that Max Waters, the Sexiest Man Alive and star of Marvel movies, is vol

Dear Maverick Jones,
I've been very loyal to you. It all started in Fantasized by You, where we first met. I had a thing for Carter Jennings in Wanted by You, but then Steph Nuss introduced me to you and I never looked back. Since then, I've had some crushes: Fletcher Haney in Pleasured by You; Justin Jameson in Cherished by You; and you almost lost me to Drake Wilkins in Challenged by You. I've held on tight, my love.
Until now.
I'm sorry, Maverick. Our time has ended. I have a new love: Americ

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

This is my first book by this author and I have to say I liked her writing style. I loved how all the characters interacted and how they were this family of friends. Max and Whitley were both super cute characters that you can’t help but be drawn to. From the start I had a feeling that max was going to be this cocky guy but he really did have a huge heart.

The story was pretty fast paced but vague in some areas. I found it disappointed me with the lack of major plot points in the story. Like his

This book can be read as a standalone, even though other couples had their stories told in earlier published books in this series. You might want to take a look at their books, but this one will work completely without them, so just start reading.
It was an easy read with a clear plot without any side plots. The idea is well-known: Famous actor meets “shy” girl and they fall in love, but this author managed to give the whole scenario a new twists wh

Whitley has no time for a man she feels must be entitled since he was voted the Sexiest Man Alive after his last superhero movie. However, her son, Zane, feels very differently and Max wants to prove to Whitley he’s a real person put in an impossible situation. With all of their friends behind them, Max and Whitley grow as a couple and a family. I absolutely loved revi ...more

Having not read Steph Nuss before, I was pleasantly surprised! I was immediately sucked into the story from the get go. And without having read the previous 5 books in the series, I still wasn't missing out on anything. I definitely want to go back and read all the couples stories now though!

Max is like anyone I've ever read before. Yes he's a Hollywood heartthrob but you would never know it by how he acts. He's one of the most humble characters I've read and I LOVED that!! He wasn't a manwhore

Steph Nuss has brought me back into the Love and City world and never disappoints. The characters in this series become your friends and the time invested in them while reading is well worth it.
In this story about Max and Whitley we get a lesson about love and fear and how to deal with being with a protective single mom. Max Voted Sexiest Man Alive and a Hollywood heartthrob learns a few things too and Whitley is there to teach him. Watching the two of them connect and fall in love was beautiful

Max and Whitley are two strong characters with so much passion for everything and everyone they love. As you read this story you will fall in love with each character as much as I do.

This was a great read!!! I enjoyed catching up with previous characters, and getting to know Whitley and Max.

These two are awesome together. Whitley starts off a bit guarded and harsh, but she soon discovers that maybe the rumors about Max aren’t true, and he’s not the typical Hollywood hottie. Max is awesome. Even though he was ordered to do some things, he did it with his whole heart and learned so much from being in those situations. I loved how he immediately took to Zane, and treated him a

What do you do when you find a man that is hot, sexy, knows what he wants and likes you a lot? Well the obvious reason is to keep him really near you. But not everything in life is that easy, especially not for Whitley. She is a single mom of a cute little boy and her needs not only include her, it includes her little boy. So here is how the story begins. Max is a famous actor that has done many bad things in the past but now he is ready to be the best person he can be. In this path to find his ...more

This was an adorable story of finding love when you least expect it. Max is serving his community service sentence when he meets the director Whitley. Whitley has a few assumed feelings towards the movie star but soon her rough edges are melted away. These two were sweet and loving. I loved the relationship Max built with her son and did every in his power to prove his love for both.
