BOOK REVIEW: Pleasured by You by Steph Nuss
In the previous book in the Love in the City series readers were given a hint at a chance encounter between Harper’s younger sister Bayler Jennings and Maverick’s buddy, Fletcher Haney. Now in book 3 we get the scoop on their anonymous yet salacious hook-up that leaves two no-strings-attached singles reconsidering their rules.
“We were covered in sweat, trying to catch our breaths. The room smelled of sex and the bed’s sheets were tangled around us.
‘Now, that…is how you ring in the new year…’”
Fletcher and Bayler are both cute, sweet, and independent. Though in the past they embraced the love ‘em and leave ‘em before morning lifestyle, we quickly see in this story that they both have so much more to offer.
“Seriously? Why did he have to have everything I liked? I liked baking; he had a bakery. I liked the beach; he had a beach house. I liked sex; he had a package he knew how to use.”
Yep, Fletcher is a total catch. And did Bayler also happen to mention that he looks and smells like an Armani ad?
There’s lots of fun friendship moments as this series is about a great group of friends who stick together. The previous couples make plenty of appearances including scenes for the most special moments of their lives.
But the real charm for me in this tale came from the side story with Fletcher and Bayler’s Littles. They are an adorable addition of young love, and I hope at some point they get their own story. They helped illustrate the integrity of Bayler and Fletcher’s characters, and it was fun watching Bayler and Fletcher in their Big roles.
Pleasured by You is told via Bayler and Fletcher’s alternating first person point of view and while part of the series can also be read as a stand-alone.

5 Questions PLUS with the Love in the City Characters
Welcome Fletcher, Bayler, Maverick, Harper, Carter, and Elly to the Book-Bosomed Book Blog! You all are such great friends and fun couples so here are some questions to let readers get to know you a little more intimately ;-)
Q1. First question is for the girls: Bayler, Harper, and Elly—you made such a great team. What group sport or activity do you think the guys should take up next time around that you would enjoy being the spectators?
Elly: I’d like to see Carter in some tight baseball pants.
Bayler: Gross, that’s our brother.
Elly: His ass was made for baseball pants. It’s a shame he’s only good at basketball.
Harper: Maverick’s ass would look amazing in baseball pants, too.
Bayler: Well, I’d prefer Fletcher in a sport where he’s half naked, but nine innings of his ass in tight pants would do.
Q2. As a trainer, Maverick knows all about the body; but you guys must have a favorite part on your women. Carter, Mav, and Fletcher—which spot on your lady holds a special place in your heart…or hand?
Carter: Her hair. Elly’s red hair was the first thing I noticed about her.
Fletcher: For me, it was Bayler’s back in that backless dress on New Years.
Maverick: I love Harper’s curves and her tattoos, but I’m really going to miss her baby bump.
Fletcher: You know you could just knock her up again.
Maverick: We can’t have sex for another six weeks.
Fletcher: WHAT?! That’s a rule?
Maverick: Her body has to heal, Fletch.
Carter: I can’t wait for Elly to start showing.
Maverick: It really is incredible.
Maverick: It really is incredible.
Fletcher: I can’t believe that’s a rule.
Q3. Fletcher picked out a sexy little outfit for Bayler in the kitchen; Bayler, if you had Harper design a special outfit for Fletch would you put him in a
A. G-string for the beach
B. Silky boxers for the bedroom
C. Chaps (with nothing else) for your own trip to the rodeo ;-)
Bayler: Oh, what a fun question! He’d kill me if I put him in a G-string. Silky boxers are hot but I’m going to have to go with C: Chaps, especially since I know for a fact he can ride for longer than eight seconds.
Q4. Bayler bakes some amazing cakes. Elly and Harper— if you wanted a special treat for Carter and Maverick’s birthday, what sexy design would you hire Bayler to create? And would you jump out of it?
Elly: I would have her make a red velvet cake with a pin-up version of me as the topper, and then I would jump out of it dressed exactly like the pin-up cake topper.
Harper: That’s an adorable idea, Elly! Instead of jumping out of a cake, I would have Bayler come over while Maverick’s at work and have her decorate me in a bunch of chocolate cake and frosting, like a sexy chocolate bikini. Then let him have me for dessert.
Q5. Maverick and Carter, Fletcher was such a sweetie grocery shopping for Bayler when she was on the mend. If Harper and Elly were laid up, could you find all their favorite items in the store and even buy some personal ones without getting embarrassed?
Carter: Oh yeah. When Elly had her cancer scare, I made her a care package of all her favorite snacks. I will admit, I’ve never had to buy any of her feminine stuff, like tampons, only because she’s never asked me to, but I’ve known her for a long time so I’m pretty aware of her favorite things. Plus, I grew up with two sisters; personal female products stopped bothering me a long time ago.
Elly: I’m totally putting tampons down on the grocery list next time!
Maverick (laughing): I could buy Harper’s personal items without a problem. When she was pregnant with our daughter, I did a majority of the grocery shopping, so I’ve come to learn all of her favorites. Unfortunately, during her pregnancy, her favorites changed often, but now that our little girl is here, I’m learning what both of my girls like and dislike all over again.
Harper: Mav is the cook in the house. He’s much better at the grocery shopping than I am.
Bayler (points to Fletcher): While I appreciated Fletcher shopping for me while I was mending my sprained ankle, I will say he has a problem with hoarding.
Fletcher: Hey, when you grow up with grandparents from the 1920s, you learn to buy multiples of everything so you never run out.
Bayler: But it’s not the 1920s, so why do you need two extra shampoos?
Fletcher: Because the store could be out when the first extra runs out.
Bayler: I’m sure another store would have it.
Fletcher: I’m not arguing with you about this again. I’m not a hoarder.
Bayler: Agree to disagree.
Last but certainly not least, here are five rapid fire questions for everyone brave enough to answer. Take them any way you please!
#1 Bite, lick, or suck?
Carter & Elly: Suck!
Harper: Suck and lick!
#2 Ocean, pool, or hot tub?
Carter & Elly: Hot tub
Harper: Hot tub
Fletcher & Bayler: Ocean
#3 Chocolate, Strawberry, or Vanilla?
Maverick & Harper: Chocolate
Fletcher & Bayler: All three
#4 Top, Bottom, or Behind?
Maverick & Harper: Behind
#5 1, 2, or 3….kids?
Carter & Elly (in unison): 2!
Maverick (smiling): 4
Harper (jaw-dropped): Four? How about 2!
Bayler (biting lip nervously): 1?
Fletcher: Uh, hell yeah just 1. Did you know we have to wait to have sex after you give birth!? I’m not going through that more than once.
