Book One - Wanted By You
Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn't beg for his attention. He wanted her. Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings. She wanted him. Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires. Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them. They want each other. But love in the city is never quite that easy.
Wanted By You is a really awesome debut novel for Steph Nuss. This is one of those great, second chance at romance novels that was hard for me to put down! Steph does do something I like in novels which is showing different points of view. You get to read what is going through the minds of Carter and Ellyson.
Carter and Ellison were friends throughout the time they were in college in New York. When they first met, they both had a mutual attraction to one another. Even though the two had the same feelings for one another, they never pursued anything beyond friendship throughout the time they were in college. After college, Carter returned back to Texas to help his father run his company. After a few years, he moves back to New York. He lost touch with his friends, including Ellyson.
Even after all those years, Ellyson and Carter's feelings for one another never went away. It was like no one could ever replace the other, even if they were to attempt to try. I was so anxious for their reunion. When it happened, just reading their reactions to seeing one another, you knew their love for one another is still there. This time around, they do act on their feelings, which made for some very, very hot scenes! When they finally have sex, whoa! They were releasing those bottled up feelings and finally letting them out!
Carter is the perfect guy for Ellyson. Heck, he'd be perfect for anyone! Carter is one of those guys any lady could take home to meet mom and dad. He's hot, knows the right things to say and a gentleman (he's from Texas, southern gentleman!) Even when Ellyson was feeling low, Carter was always there to pick her up. He wasn't going anywhere no matter what was going on.
There are many things that are great about this novel. I love the story line. I love the characters. Carter and Ellyson are such a good couple. I love their friends! Their friends are so freaking funny. Steph has done a wonderful job with this novel and now I'm really looking forward to the next installment in this series!

Book Two - Fantasized By YouCelebrity fashion designer, Harper Jennings is only months away from turning thirty, and her dream of living a happily ever after has yet to come true.
My Review *****Five Stars*****
I'm loving this series! This is the second book in the Love In The City series. You don't have to read the first book to understand the second. A lot of the characters that are in the first novel are also in the second novel. This novel focuses on the Maverick and Harper.
When the two meet, it wasn't too pleasant the first minute. Maverick, a gym owner, has a deep dislike for anyone associated with the fashion industry. He blames the industry for the death of a friend (who happened to be friends with Harper) who was bulimic. Harper wants to volunteer as a mentor in the counseling program that he has at his gym. She also was bulimic, but sought treatment after the death of that friend. He recognized Jen Harper, the famous fashion designer. What he didn't know is she is Harper, the sister of one of his friends, Carter. Carter did mention to Maverick he planned to introduce the two to one another!
There is so much that happens in this novel. I enjoyed seeing the love develop between Harper and Maverick. Their love scenes are hot (chocolate syrup plays a part in one of the scenes!) The two want the same things out of life: finding that one person you want to spend forever with and children in the future. Also Maverick has to deal with Harper being in the public eye. Some of the things that the paparazzi puts out there may put his trust in her to the test. There is also a little bit of suspense with a stalker that Harper and a model/actor friend of hers Max have been dealing with for quite some time. I love that they are part of this circle of friends and they seem to always have fun. They are also like an extended family for one another and always there to support one another.
Just like the first novel, I enjoyed the second one just the same! I was so hooked in reading this and it was hard to put down. I'm really eager to read the next installment and I'm guessing it could be about Fletch??
