This book is absolutely beautiful. It’s breathtaking and has a darkness looming from the first page you read. It’s hard to read in parts and to me, extremely painful in others. The best part was the care and knowledge that Steph put into this book. The way that she chose to write this story really shows what type of author, as well as person, that Steph is.
SIDS is something that every single parent fears and others, sadly, have to experience it. She didn’t sugarcoat the facts, nor did she write them with a lack of knowledge. One of the parts that I think was written perfectly was the fear Paige felt towards having more children, the what if’s, the paranoia, and most importantly, the over protection.
Let’s talk happy stuff now. The gang is all back together – who can’t help to be excited to read about the other characters. I love reading about each couple’s continuation and other couples’ early starts. As usual, Steph does a phenomenal job carrying over their stories onto the next book she is writing and doesn’t miss a beat. One of the best and funniest scenes is the babysitting scene. It will leave you laughing out loud, or leave you trying not to laugh out loud because you’re reading at work, either way, it’s pretty funny! There is definitely not a lack of detail and descriptions to leave you wanting or leave you questioning what’s going on, what the scene looks like, or what they are wearing.
I can’t express enough praise towards Steph and the way she wrote this story. I never expected Paige’s story to unfold the way it did. It also lets you in on just how tough of a character Paige is – especially when she is up against her bosses.
While this is a “stand-alone” I don’t suggest to just pick up this book and read it without reading the others. Each book focuses on a “main” couple but the story starts at book one and continues on with each addition. I suggest you start with book one and continue on until you’ve finished with this story – then wait patiently for the next one. You won’t regret it - you’ll be begging Steph to write a little faster.
“I’d loved her in so many different ways throughout the years.”
I never could have imagined the complications and hardships that we witnessed from Paige and Drake’s story. Though we’ve seen obstacles with the other couples, the ones described here were devastating in an entirely different way. The things that they went through showed tremendous courage and I felt my heartstrings being tugged at every single step of the way. Challenged by You became so much more than just a fun romance; it was about loving through loss and finding the strength to forgiveness. The way that both Paige and Drake were able to hold themselves, and the way that they loved each other, showed just how transcendent love can truly be.
“I’ve learned that you can’t plan everything. Sometimes the best moments in life are the unexpected ones.”
I’ve read and followed Steph Nuss’ work from her first book in the series. With each new release, I saw little steps of growth, but with this latest installment, it shows in leaps and bounds. She dug into the depths of emotions that frankly, I didn’t know she was capable of. Challenged by You feels so different from the other books in the series, yet still very much the same. The fun, caring nature of this group of friends is very much present, but the emotional depth ran much further than I’d previously received from this author. It was a pleasant surprise, despite the gut-wrenching moments, and I hope she continues down this path.
“If our love had any chance of surviving, she needed to take back control.”
Whenever I go into a longer series, I’m always nervous that I’ll get a regurgitated love story with different characters and different settings. Yet, with the Love in the City series, each book has been fresh and new and kept me wanting more. While I have adored all of the characters, I think that Paige and Drake are most certainly my favorite. They went on a transformation from beginning to end and I loved watching them heal and grow from what they’d been through. I’m definitely curious to see how Steph Nuss will approach the next book, but if it shows the growth and potential that she tapped in Challenged by You, I have utmost faith that I’ll love it just the same!
I don't want to give away any spoilers and I won't. I will say that this book made me cry. I can count the times I've cried because of a book on one hand and this book made me sniffle and cry and I was reading when my Hubby and kids were watching a movie and they were laughing because I read constantly from all genres and have never seen me get emotional about a book.
I love this series so very much. Steph Nuss is a very talented writer and I'm so glad that I stumbled upon this series. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a new series to fall in love with. Each book follows a different character but all the characters are in each book in some capacity.
